‘Eragon’ TV Series Approaching at Disney+

Fandompk has learned confidentially from sources that Disney+ is in the early stages of developing a live-action "Eragon" TV series.

The first of the four volumes in the graphic novel series "The Family Cycle" by Christopher Paolini, "Eragon," would serve as the basis for the television series.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the movie currently has a 16 favorable rating.

According to IGN's own review, "all but the thickest and most ardent fans will surely be disappointed by the heavy-handed direction and bad adaptation of this half-decent, but derivative, fantasy novel."

The hero of Eragon is a farm boy who lives with his uncle and cousin before being abruptly whisked away on an epic adventure when he finds a dragon egg. and raises the tiny animal after it hatches.

Pre‐service will assist in the series' writing, sources said. Under his Co-Lab 21 brand, Bert Salke will executive produce, while 20th Television will produce. Salke now has a deal with Disney Television Studios, which includes 20th TV.

 Fandompk request for comment was not answered immediately by Paolini or Disney representatives.

A dirt farmer named Eragon finds an egg that hatches into a dragon he names Saphira in the book "The Blood Cycle." Eragon discovers how to become a Dragon Rider through their relationship and the assistance of his mentor Brom. This is a famous order that was once believed dead thanks to the evil king Galbatorix. To end Galbatorix's rule over Alagasia, Eragon and Saphira set out to defeat him.

Before being published by Knopf in 2003, "Eragon" was first self-published in 2002. In 2005, "Eldest," "Brisingr," and "Succession" were released in its wake. Over 41 million volumes of the rest of the series have been sold globally, showing its popular success.

If the plan is approved, "Eragon" would not be the first book to be translated for the big screen. A 2006 movie with the same name based on the book starred Ed Speleers as Eragon, Rachel Weisz as Saphira, Jeremy Irons as Bran, and John Malkovich as Galbatorix. After receiving scathing criticism from critics upon release, the movie made approximately $250 million at the box office worldwide on an estimated $100 million budget.

Additionally, "Eragon" would be the most recent well-known YA novel series to be turned into a Disney+ series. The streamer is currently working on a Percy Jackson television series with Walker Scobell playing the title character.

Writers House and WME represent Paolini.

Note: Even though it is now known that the project is in its early stages and no such official decision has been taken, an early version of the story stated Paolini will serve as co-showrunner on the series.

Paolini will work as a co-writer on the next Eragon TV series. With 20th Television, Bert Salke is on board as an executive producer. Although Paolini is believed to also be the showrunner, the program is still in its early stages of development.

In addition, Disney+ is recreating the Percy Jackson series with a brand-new TV show starring Walker Scobell from The Adam Project.
