'Game of Thrones' Animated Series in the Works? HBO's Big Plan Leaked!
Aside from the reported prequels and spinoffs of the hit drama series "Game of Thrones," an animated series is reportedly in the works.
According to a report by TV Web, HBO is planning to roll out an animated adaptation of the eight-season drama about nine noble families that had been at war against each other. However, fans should not get their hopes up that it will come soon, as it has been revealed that the project is still in its very early stages.
While it is unkown if it is still in the conceptual stage or there are already concrete plans, no plot details have been revealed. The TV Web report also noted that no writer has been attached to the animated series, which means that it's likely the project hasn't even began production yet.
For what it's worth though, the said series is reportedly planned to be streamed on HBO Max.
Per Reuters, however, HBO did not comment on the report.
