EDIT: EXTREMELY LATE APRIL FOOL'S! Courtesy to Aaeron DiNozo for making the cover!
I didn't believe this until I did further research, but I am pleased--and excited--to announce that Disney Animation has green-lit a brand-new movie: Eragon!
<--Teaser poster for Eragon, which draws similarites to the original book cover.
Eragon was previously made into a film in 2006, but drew poor critical reception. Despite this, it was the 16th highest-grossing film of the year. However, many moviegoers--fans of the book and otherwise--were disappointed with this take of the Eragon story. Author Christopher Paolini is quoted as saying, "The movie was horrible. I wish it had never been made."
Disney executive Robert Iger approached Paolini to remake Eragon, as well as purchasing the rights for potential sequels should Eragon do well at the box office. So far, Paolini has been fascinated with the idea of a remake. "I always dreamed of Alagaesia [the land in which Eragon takes place] to be dream-like, and with animation, I can't wait to see that effect."
Eragon is the first story in the Inheritance Cycle. The three sequels are Eldest, Brisingr, and the recently-announced Inheritance. The contract Paolini signed will have Eragon being released in Christmas 2015, Eldest in 2017, and Brisingr and Inheritance being released sometime in the early 2020s.

Want a remake soon baddd I don't know how certain people don't like books they are amazing 1st movie was descent could have been made little better I really pray they don't make this animated it will not appeal to adults as much just children if it is a regular /3D movie it could be one of the best franchises since LOTR!!!!!!!!

I hope Disney does the book(s) justice. I never read the books but my wife has read all 4 and loves them and tells me all the time how awful the movie was compared to it. If they were to redo it I think Peter Jackson should step up to the plate and do it as he did the LotR Trilogy. Make all 4 at once and release in order, 6months-1year apart.

I am very excited about this news! I just hope that it is true. I was very disapointed with the movie and I loved the book sooooo much. An idea that I had though was that, maybe, the producers of "The Lord of the Rings" could do it. I mean, that move was magical! And the land they filmed it on was amazingly beautiful! Exactly how I imagined Alagaesia. They also had great special effects. I am still thrilled though. Animation can do so much with the characters. They have no limits. I can only hope that they follow the book.
