Eragon is a wonderful book and I wouldn’t have survived middle school without it. It’s one of the easiest to read fantasy series (second only to the Hobbit, in my very limited opinion) but I was very disappointed by the 2006 film.

Has there been talk about another movie?

    Hi, welcome to SF&F. You might want to read How to Ask; this question is a bit conversational, and your final question isn't completely the same as the question in your title. Are you asking if there are any plans to re-make the movie, or if there are plans for a sequel?

  • Hi and welcome! Like @DavidW said take a peek at that link, but also taking the tour will help you out in understanding how the site is different to what you might expect. Hope to see you around soon.

  • Eh, depends on what you call talk. Disney owns the rights (after the fox acquisition), and they've been reportedly considering it for D+, but these types of discussions typically happen behind closed doors and as of now there has not been anything offical said.

As of November 2022, the books are in development to be adapted as a TV show. It remains to be seen whether this actually happens or not.

An “Eragon” live-action TV series is in early development at Disney+, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series would be based on the Christopher Paolini young adult novel series “The Inheritance Cycle,” with “Eragon” being the first of the four books in that series.

Paolini will serve as co-writer and executive producer on the series. Bert Salke will executive produce under his Co-Lab 21 banner, with 20th Television producing. Salke is currently under an overall deal with Disney Television Studios, of which 20th TV is a part. The search is currently on for a showrunner.

“This has been a long time coming,” Paolini said in a statement posted on Twitter. “I can’t tell you how many conversations, meetings, and messages were needed in order to reach this point. And we’re still just at the beginning! However, none of this would have been possible without everyone who has read the books, supported the tweetstorms, and participated in this fandom over the years. So a huge thank you from me to every Alagaësian out there. You brought the thunder.”

‘Eragon’ TV Series Adaptation in Development at Disney+ (EXCLUSIVE)


I’m attached to both co-write and produce! And yes, I’m extremely excited for what the future holds. At the moment, I can’t go into details—it’s still early days with regard to this project—but I can say that I’m very pleased with the team I’m working with at 20th Television, Disney Branded Television, and Disney+. These are smart, passionate people, and I’m looking forward to making the best possible Eragon/Inheritance Cycle adaptation with them.

Christopher Paolini offers an update on the Eragon Disney+ TV show!

The author certainly wants a remake, but there's no sign that Disney (the current rights-holders) have any intention of remaking Eragon, or any of the books in the series into a new movie or TV series.

The author made this clear in an instagram post in July 2021, and there haven't been any substantive updates since.

Greetings, Alagaësians! Once again, I want to thank you for your incredible support and enthusiasm during the #EragonRemake tweetstorm. It definitely got @Disney’s attention. Alas, I’ve heard through official channels that—at the moment—Disney is holding off on making any more expensive series like Eragon until their business is back to pre- pandemic levels. Nevertheless, the tweetstorm really made them sit up and take notice. And if the hashtag ends up trending again at some point, I’m sure that wouldn’t hurt.. .. :-) Once again, my heartfelt thanks, and as always: Atra esterní ono thelduin.
