Dragonriders Of Pern Set To Ride Into Feature Film Land
With the likes of “The Hobbit” and “Harry Potter” securing lucrative feature film deals over the past decade, Warner Bros. is seeking a similar fantasy feature film franchise and are looking into making “The Dragonriders of Pern” into a possible feature film franchise. The series of 22 novels by author Anne McCaffrey follows the warriors of the planet Pern as they ride their telepathic dragons and fight off spores from the evil Red Star. McCaffrey passed away in 2011.
The series began with “Dragonflight” in 1968 and has extended – with McCaffrey’s son, Todd, doing much of the late series writing – to 2012 with “Sky Dragons”.
