WINGS OF FIRE: Netflix Announces New Family Animated Series Based On Popular Fantasy Books

Award-winning producer Ava DuVernay through ARRAY Filmworks is teaming up with Warner Bros. Animation to adapt Tui T. Sutherland's fantasy series Wings of Fire into an animated family series for Netflix.

Tui T. Sutherland's best-selling book series Wings of Fire is getting the Netflix treatment. The fantasy novel series is being adapted into an animated series by Warner Bros. Animation that will consist of 10, 40-minute episodes on the streaming service.

Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Ava DuVernay (Selma, 13th and When They See Us) is producing the series through ARRAY Filmworks. Dan Milano (Glitch Techs),  Christa Starr (Mystery Science Theater 3000), and Justin Ridge (Star Wars Resistance) will serve as showrunners, with the former pair adapting the book series (of which there are 15 novels planned) for television.

“Within this epic book series from the mind of Tui Sutherland is an elegant saga filled with wisdom and wonder, exploring ideas of belonging and bias, camaraderie and community,” said DuVernay. “On behalf of my colleagues Sarah Bremner and Paul Garnes of ARRAY Filmworks, we’re thrilled to partner with Netflix and Warner Bros. Animation for this dynamic adaptation where five young dragonets fulfill their destiny and show viewers how to fulfill their own.” 

Wings of Fire is an epic fantasy saga set during a bitter war that has raged on for generations between the dragon tribes who inhabit the world of Pyrrhia. The series follows the five Dragonets of destiny -- Clay, Tsunami, Glory, Starflight, and Sunny -- who, according to prophecy, are the ones who will rise to end the bloodshed and bring peace back into the world. The dragons, who were raised and trained in secret from when they were hatched, embark on an evolving quest "that will bring them face to face with their true selves and the overwhelming scope of this savage war they are destined to bring to an end."

“The Wings of Fire books have captured the imagination of millions," added Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios President Sam Register, who is also an executive producer on the project. "In Ava, Justin, Christa and Dan we have a visionary creative team that will bring that same sense of wonder and adventure from the books to life with animation and create the next great animated family series at Netflix.”
