Aquaman is taking a break from our screens until 2022 but that doesn’t mean that he will be taking a holiday. It has been announced that director James Wan is going to be executive producing a new, three-part, animated series for Warner Bros. streaming service HBO Max.
Aquaman: King of Atlantis will focus on the Arthur Curry as he takes up the throne and will take environmental issues. A brief logging for the series reads:
“The series begins with Aquaman’s first day on the job as king of Atlantis and he’s got a lot of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess. Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the trident!”
Speaking of the project Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max, said “This DC property is a fan-favorite, rich with well-known characters and dynamic storylines. On the heels of Warner Bros. Pictures’ box office smash hit, we are certain Aquaman: King of Atlantis will be an exciting addition to our already robust slate of kids and family programming.”
