HBO looking into possible animated version of “Game of Thrones”

After the lacklustre reception to its final season, sources are now confirming that HBO is looking into producing an animated version of the George R.R. Martin's fantasy franchise "Game of Thrones".

The idea of the project is said to be in a very early stage, with no concept or creative team on board, and HBO is declining to make any official comments about the possibility of reintroducing the show as an animation.

The studio is already juggling several other projects involving George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" universe, with prequel, "House of the Dragon" expected to debut in 2022.

Meanwhile, it was reported early this week that there could be another series adaptation of the writer's "Tales of Dunk & Egg" which follows the adventures of Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Egg.

Another one of these prequels - a project written by Jane Goldman and starring Naomi Watts - was not picked up by the studio immediately following the backlash against "Game of Thrones" finale.

If the project does come to fruition, it would be good news for many fans of the original series, who had been asking for it for years - with some of the more creative ones sharing their own artistic take of the animated version.
