George R. R. Martin is working with Warner Bros. Animation to bring his 1980 children's book The Ice Dragon to life on screen. The book follows a girl named Adara, who befriends a legendary ice dragon to save her world from destruction by fire-breathing dragons.

Martin announced April 25 that The Winds of Winter, the next novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, will not release in 2018. His book Fire & Blood, a history of the series' Targaryen family, is set to publish November 20.

Publisher Tor Teen released an updated edition of Martin's The Ice Dragon in 2014 with illustrations from Luis Royo.

Our Take
I'm eager to see the movie, but I imagine A Song of Ice and Fire fans are confused as to why Martin keeps taking on other projects before moving on with his most famous series.
