In a blog post over the weekend, the “Game of Thrones” author shared that he’s working on three animated projects based on that wildly popular franchise.
Writing, “There is so much on television these days, in the age of streaming, it is hard to keep up,” Martin wrote. “It is always a joy to stumble on a show that you haven’t seen before, a great show that just blows you away, that sinks its claws into you and won’t let go.”
He noted that Netflix’s animated series “Blue Eye Samurai” is just such a show, which led to the revelation of his animated shows in development.
“As it happens, HBO and I have our animated projects, set in the world of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE. None of them have been greenlit yet, but I think we are getting close to taking the next step with a couple of them,” Martin wrote.
According to Martin, the previously announced “House of the Dragon” prequel “Nine Voyages,” will now be animated.
While Marton sounds hopeful the projects will make it to screens, he also wrote that “Nothing is certain in Hollywood.”
One thing that is certain: the second season of “House of the Dragon” is set to debut this summer.
