Warner to Animate George R.R. Martin’s ‘The Ice Dragon’

Feature will be based on the author’s 1980 children’s book, which is not connected to the Game of Thrones saga.

Warner Animation Group will adapt ‘Game of Thrones’ author George R.R. Martin’s 1980 children’s book ‘The Ice Dragon’ as an animated feature.

Game of Thrones author and producer George R.R. Martin is bringing his fantasy game to animation, with Warner Animation Group set to adapt his 1980 children’s book The Ice Dragon into a feature.

Though dealing with dragons, the book and the feature have no connection to either the A Song of Fire and Ice novels or the Game of Thrones TV series.

According to Deadline, which reported the news first, the book tells the tale of a young girl who befriends a rare ice dragon, whose help proves decisive when an army of dragons invades her city.

Martin is set to produce the feature, with Vince Gerardis as executive producer. WAG chiefs Allison Abbate and Chris Leahy are supervising for the studio.
