It appears that Disney+ has decided to prioritize YA adaptation, as it has many novels set to be adapted as TV series this year and next. Meanwhile, it has been reported that a live-action TV series titled Eragon is currently in the works.
The Eragon television series is based on Christopher Paolini’s young-person fantasy epic novel series The Inheritance Cycle’s first novel of the same name.
It was the third best-selling hardcover book for children in 2003 and the second best-selling paperback in 2005. It appeared on the New York Times Children’s Best list. The seller has a 121-week listing.
Furthermore, prior to being adapted by Disney for the upcoming TV series, the book was adapted as a feature film of the same name, which was released in December 2006 and starred Ed Speelers as the title character.

According to reports, Paolini will start serving as the series’ co-writer, while Bart Salke will executive produce it under his Co-Lab 21 banner, with 20th Television producing. The series’ cast has yet to be confirmed.
