AQUAMAN: KING OF ATLANTIS Animated Miniseries Coming to HBO Max From James Wan

James Wan is all about AQUAMAN these days as he helmed the first $1 billion worldwide grosser and is hard at work developing its movie sequel. But it seems he will also oversee a new family-friendly three-part animated miniseries called AQUAMAN: KING OF ATLANTIS as executive producer for this May's new streaming service HBO Max.

Variety has the scoop and writes:

"'King of Atlantis' will begin with Aquaman’s first day on the job as king of Atlantis. 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.

"'This DC property is a fan-favorite rich with well-known characters and dynamic storylines,' said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max. '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.'"

No word on when the miniseries would debut on HBO Max at the time this post was published.
