It did not take earlier than the hashtag began trending, which could possibly be a massive assist in getting Disney to discover that the need for such an adaptation undoubtedly exists. The novels happen within the fictional world of Alagaësia and observe the adventures of a teenage boy named Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, as they wrestle to overthrow the evil king Galbatorix.
Should Eragon truly get remade someplace down the road, it would not be the primary fantasy collection that Disney has given a second likelihood to. A collection adaptation of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson franchise is within the works for Disney+, which can revamp the collection after the blended reception of the 2 films launched by Fox, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
