James Wan is Producing an “Aquaman” animated series for HBO Max.

HBO Max is the latest streaming platform to stake its claim in the streaming wars. The latest title to join HBO Max’s library will be James Wan’s animated Aquaman.

Aquaman was announced this past Wednesday as a three-part animated miniseries titled Aquaman: King of Atlantis from executive producer (Aquaman director) James Wan.

The three-part series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, will open as Aquaman takes the throne of the underseas kingdom for the first time and discovers that it’s not easy being in charge. You can expect his half-brother trying to take Atlantis for himself, serving as the series anti-hero. In addition, plot details such as surface dwellers causing problems under the sea and ancient evils threatening danger perpetually have emerged. If Aquaman is to prove that he’s the right one for the job, he’ll have to learn some new skills and trust in the advice offered by scholar Vulko and Mera, the water-controlling princess who is also the hero’s on-again, off-again love interest.
