Dragon Prince fans, rejoice! Netflix has given the creative team at Wonderstorm the greenlight to produce four more seasons of the animated epic, which will allow the series to complete its saga at the end of Season 7.
“We feel amazingly grateful to the fans and community,” co-creator Aaron Ehasz told fans during The Dragon Prince Comic-Con@Home panel. Back in 2019, Ehasz and fellow co-creator Justin Richmond laid out their seven-season plan for The Dragon Prince to a crowd of eager fans at San Diego Comic-Con. Now, with Seasons 4, 5, 6, and 7 a go at Netflix, fans can rest assured knowing they’re going to get a complete story. While no release date for Season 4 (Book 4) has been revealed, the title of the upcoming season will be called “Earth.”
For a look at how the cast and crew reacted to the exciting Season 4 (and beyond!) renewal announcement, watch the heartwarming clip from their panel below:
Wonderstorm Is Working on More Than Dragon Prince… Like Video Games!
Wonderstorm, co-founded by Justin Richmond, Aaron Ehasz, and Justin Santistevan, is about so much more than just making The Dragon Prince on Netflix. Before the global pandemic began, IGN was invited on a tour of Wonderstorm’s offices in Los Angeles. And to our surprise, we walked into a room full of talented animators, coders, and designers working on new scripted series and even video games! And while we can’t reveal any of the details surrounding the titles we saw in production, it was thrilling to witness so many talented people working on a variety of projects in various stages of development.
We asked the founders what Wonderstorm would like to be known for as their company continues to grow. “We’re trying to be a special place where artists and writers and programmers can be part of visionary teams that are building something they believe in and are proud of,” Ehasz told IGN. The founders went on to say that Wonderstorm is striving to be a “double-threat media studio” that’s working on shows and video games simultaneously.
Richmond, who has a gaming background as the director of Uncharted 3, says Wonderstorm is “doing something very rare. We have teams that are building this whole universe together but they’re working on very different products. The goal is to get to the point where the whole experience with one of our future worlds is literally like, ‘I’m watching a show, I’m playing a game.’ It’s all one experience. I get linear content and non-linear game content all from Wonderstorm all in one place.”
So basically, the next Wonderstorm IP you experience could be in the form of an animated series, video game, or a book. And as far as The Dragon Prince goes, Wonderstorm is expanding the franchise’s footprint by partnering with Dark Horse Comics on a new hardcover art book (debuting on August 18), plus a graphic novel from Scholastic, titled “Through the Moon,” which is currently available for pre-order and will be released on October 6.
