Via the Hollywood Reporter, an Aquaman animated mini-series produced by James Wan is in the works for HBO Max.
The three-part series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, will open as Aquaman takes the throne of the underseas kingdom for the first time and discovers that it’s not easy being in charge — especially with a half-brother trying to take Atlantis for himself, surface dwellers causing problems under the sea, and ancient evils threatening danger perpetually. If Aquaman is to prove that he’s the right king for the job, he’ll have to learn some new skills and trust in the advice offered by scholar Vulko and Mera, the water-controlling princess who also happens to be the hero's on-again, off-again love interest.
King of Atlantis will be executive produced by Wan, Atomic Monster’s Michael Clear, and Warner Bros. Animation’s Rob Hackett, and Sam Register. Victor Courtright (Thundercats Roar!) and Marly Halpern-Graser (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) will serve as showrunners and co-executive producers.

So this is going to be a direct tie-in to the movie, only aimed for more younger audiences? I was hoping for a full-fledged Aquaman cartoon, but this should be fun :).
A direct animated tie-in to a live action movie is always intriguing at first. And only 3 parts, easy to digest. The immediate question I have is will the movie cast lend their voices?
I would think they wouldn't make it based so much on the movie if they weren't going to try...and Wan is there, so he might be able to make it happen :cool:.

I can totally see Momoa being willing to do it ;).

It's cool to see Aquaman get another animated series, even if it's only 3 episodes long. But I presume more might be on the way providing Aquaman 2 is another success. Kind of reminds me of the CW Seed shows in a way, but also the upcoming What If?... in how it's supposedly set in the same continuity as the live-action movie.

back when the Harvey Weinstein allegations happened i remember saying "well i'm not surprised he's known for being a jerk to certain movies particularly in his treatment in animated movies he acquired and is known for re-cutting live action flims behind director's backs."
They are still airing New Episodes of Max and Ruby???
Most NBCU networks will air movies with limited ads.
