HBO Max greenlights James Wan‘s Aquaman: King of Atlantis animated mini-series.  The announcement was made at the WarnerMedia Television TCA day on Wednesday.  

Aquaman: King of Atlantis is a three part mini-series from Wan’s Atomic Monster and Warner Bros. Animation.  According to Deadline, the mini-series will be family oriented and is “laced with ecological and ethical themes.”  Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max added, “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.”

Warner Media posted the description of the series, “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!”

I wonder if Jason Momoa will voice Aquaman?  Considering it’s only a three part mini-series, it’s possible.  

The series is executive produced byWan, Atomic Monster’s Michael ClearRob Hackett and Sam Register. Victor Courtright and Marly Halpern-Graser will serve as showrunners and co-executive producers.

Aquaman: King of Atlantis joins classic Looney Tunes Cartoons, Adventure Time: Distant Lands, and Rick and Morty in HBO Max’s animated line up. 

HBO Max will debut in May 2020.
