While we’re still waiting for Aquaman 2 to hit the silver screen, James Wan has covered with more Arthur Curry content.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wan is set to produce a three-part animated series called King of Atlantis. Coming from Warner Bros Animation, the series will follow Arthur Curry in his early days of being, well, the king of Atlantis. More importantly, it sounds like it will bridge the gap between Aquaman and its 2022 sequel.

Per THR, the series follows: “Aquaman takes the throne of the underseas kingdom for the first time and discovers that it’s not easy being in charge — especially with a half-brother trying to take Atlantis for himself, surface dwellers causing problems under the sea, and ancient evils threatening danger perpetually. If Aquaman is to prove that he’s the right king 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 also happens to be the hero’s on-again, off-again love interest.”

There is currently no word if any of the cast will reprise their roles for the animated series. We’re totally down for more of Jason Momoa’s voice in our lives, just saying.

Head of Original Content for HBO Max, Sara Aubrey said in a statement, “This DC property is a fan-favorite rich with well-known characters and dynamic storylines. 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.”

There’s currently no time frame for the release of King of Atlantis.
