George R.R. Martin Producing Animated Film Adaptation For The Ice Dragon
There is still the better part of a year to go before the eighth and final season of the massively popular Game of Thrones television series airs on HBO. Based on the hit A Song of Ice and Fire novel series, fans are equally eager in their wait for the next book in the George R. R. Martin-authored series. While Martin has confirmed that a new book centered around the history of the Targaryen family will be coming this year, fans have been yearning for other pieces of media to keep them occupied. Hopefully, the news regarding George R.R. Martin producing a new animated film satiates that need.
Deadline announced that George R.R. Martin will produce an animated film adaptation of his children’s novella The Ice Dragon. The work was originally published in an anthology called Dragons of Light in 1980. The book has been reworked and re-published several times throughout the past few decades, but this will mark the first time that The Ice Dragon is adapted outside of a literary medium. Warner Bros. has greenlit the project to be produced under their Warner Animation Group label.
The story is about a young girl named Adara who befriends an ice dragon after losing her mother. Together, they band together to protect Adara’s home from a breed of fire dragons. It has been suggested that Martin could help pen the script for this adaptation, but considering his other planned writing goals for the next year or so, he seems fairly occupied already. Still, for those looking for more dragon action from the man himself, this certainly is another realm that fans will be happy to visit.
