George R.R. Martin knows there’s a lot to choose from in terms of content, but that’s not stopping him from adding more abundance.

Over the weekend, the “Game of Thrones” author shared that he’s working on three animated projects based on that wildly popular franchise.

Martin says as it happens, he and HBO have their own animated projects, set in the world of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE.

He says none of them have been greenlit yet, but he thinks they are getting close to taking the next step with a couple of them.

According to Martin, the previously announced “House of the Dragon” prequel “Nine Voyages,” will now be animated.

“Nine Voyages” will tell the story of the Sea Snake Corlys Velaryon played in “House of the Dragon” by Steve Toussaint.

He says budgetary constraints would likely have made a live action version prohibitively expensive, what with half the show taking place at sea, and the necessity of creating a different port every week, from Driftmark to Lys to the Basilisk Isles to Volantis to Qarth to… well, on and on and on.

There’s a whole world out there and they have a lot better chance of showing it all with animation so now they have three animated projects underway.”

While Martin sounds hopeful the projects will make it to screens, he also wrote that “Nothing is certain in Hollywood.”
