Warners grabs the rights to Dragonriders of Pern

Warner Bros. has picked up the screen rights to all twenty-two novels in Anne McCaffrey’s sprawling fantasy novel series Dragonriders of Pern, one of the biggest selling sci-fi series ever.


The books were first published in 1968 and the stories center on a group of warriors and their dragons try to save their home planet of Pern from a deadly airborne threat, a rain of spores that hails from the orbit of the Red Star.

No screenwriter is currently attached to adapt the work at this time. And hey… DragonLance anyone? Drizzt? Hello?
