According to Variety, a live-action show based off Christopher Paolini’s book “Eragon” from the “Inheritance Cycle” is in development for Disney+. This is not the first big book series to be adapted by Disney+, with Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson” series is also getting its own show.
“Eragon” was previously adapted by 20th Century Fox in 2006. However, the film was poorly received by critics and failed to garner enough interest to spark a series. Fans have not forgotten though. Last year, #EragonRemake was trending worldwide as millions of fans tagged Disney in hopes the company would take up the quest.
This time around, the book will be adapted as a series rather than a film, much to fans’ delight.
“Eragon” is set in the world of Alagaesia, where a young farm boy happens upon a dragon egg and sets off on a journey to save his home from an evil king.
