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"<--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.

What's the source of that news? No animation site seem to talk about it.
I hope it's not true though. Dreamworks already have HTTYD and they're planning many sequels. (including one in 2014) so doing another Dragon movie would be a mistake.
And another reason I don't believe it, is because the Discworld film is hand drawn and will be released around 2013/2014, I don't think they would make two hand drawn films at the same time.

It's a 2D animated film. Fully hand-drawn.

It better be good and not slaughtered like the original movie. Hopefully live action with CGI characters like in Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia. Please no fully CGI characters and realities like Shrek or How to Train Your Dragon.

Isn't that about the quickest a movie has ever been remade in history? Not bad.
