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.
