    Ava DuVernary to make Netflix animated series Wings of Fire
    Netflix today announced Wings of Fire, an animated event series
    for the whole family, based on the best-selling series of books
    published by Scholastic with 14 million copies in print. The
    epic fantasy saga marks the first animated series from Academy
    Award Nominee and Emmy Award Winner Ava DuVernay and ARRAY
    Filmworks. Season 1 will consist of ten 40-minute episodes.

    Wings of Fire is an animated event series adaptation of the
    #1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling book series from
    author Tui T. Sutherland. A bitter war has raged for
    generations between the dragon tribes who inhabit the epic
    world of Pyrrhia. According to prophecy, five young dragons
    will rise to end the bloodshed and bring peace back to the
    land. Raised and trained in secret from the time they were
    hatched, the Dragonets of destiny - Clay, Tsunami, Glory,
    Starflight, and Sunny - embark on an evolving quest that will
    bring them face to face with their true selves and the
    overwhelming scope of this savage war they are destined to
    bring to an end.

    Ava DuVernay quote: "Within this epic book series from the
    mind of Tui Sutherland is an elegant saga filled with wisdom
    and wonder, exploring ideas of belonging and bias,
    camaraderie and community," said DuVernay. "On behalf of my
    colleagues Sarah Bremner and Paul Garnes of ARRAY Filmworks,
    we're thrilled to partner with Netflix and Warner Bros.
    Animation for this dynamic adaptation where five young
    dragonets fulfill their destiny and show viewers how to
    fulfill their own."

    Melissa Cobb quote (Vice President, Original Animation,
    Netflix): "We couldn't be more proud that Ava has chosen
    Netflix as the home for her first animated series. An epic
    fantasy saga full of sweep and spectacle, 'Wings of Fire'
    promises to be a must-see event for the whole family."

    Sam Register quote (President, Warner Bros. Animation and
    Cartoon Network Studios): "The 'Wings of Fire' books have
    captured the imagination of millions. In Ava, Justin, Christa
    and Dan we have a visionary creative team that will bring
    that same sense of wonder and adventure from the books to
    life with animation and create the next great animated family
    series at Netflix."

    Acting as showrunners/executive producers are Dan Milano
    (Glitch Techs), Christa Starr (Mystery Science Theater 3000)
    and Justin Ridge (Star Wars Resistance). Milano and Starr are
    adapting the book series for television. Ava DuVernay, Dan
    Milano, Christa Starr, Justin Ridge, Tui T. Sutherland, Sam
    Register and Sarah Bremner will serve as executive producers
    for ARRAY Filmworks.
