HBO Max announced today at the WarnerMedia Television Critics Association (TCA) day, James Wan will serve as executive producer for Aquaman: King of Atlantis, an animated three-part miniseries that will recount Arthur Curry’s first day as the undersea ruler.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the series

begins with Aquaman’s first day on the job as

king of Atlantis and he’s got a lot of catching up

to do. Luckily, he has his two royal advisors to

back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the

water controlling warrior-princess. Between

dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers,

elder evils from beyond time and his own

half-brother who wants to overthrow him,

Aquaman is going to have to rise to the

challenge and prove to his subjects, and to

himself, that he’s the right man for the trident!

King of Atlantis will be Wan’s third project

with DC; in addition to directing 2018 

Aquaman movie, he acted as executive producer on the short-lived Swamp Thing series for WarnerMedia’s DC Universe streaming service. Wan is currently developing an 

Aquaman sequel, as well as a Trench spinoff.

“This DC property is a fan-favorite, rich with well-known characters and dynamic storylines,” said HBO Max Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey. “On the heels of Warner Bros. Pictures’ box office smash hit, we are certain Aquaman: King of Atlantis will be an exciting addition to our already robust slate of kids and family programming.”

Each of the standalone episodes will have a unique storyline following the adventures of Aquaman as protector of the deep.
