If you remember Eragon, then we’re sure you have to understand how iconic she was to a series of books when it was released. Following the popularity of other book series such as Harry potter, Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and more, Eragon was also so popular that it was eventually developed for the big screen. However, just like Percy Jackson, while the books were very popular, the film was not so well received.
The film Eragon was released in 2006 and was highly anticipated by fans of the series. However, while it grossed $ 250.4 million at the box office on a budget of $ 100 million, the film ended up being a complete mess. It currently holds a low score of sixteen percent on Rotten Tomatoes with an audience score of forty-six percent and thirty-eight percent on Metacritic. . . Ouch.
While originally intended to be a franchise, the Eragon The film was received so poorly by fans of the book series as well as critics that it was left in the dust. More than a decade after the film’s release, however, there seems to be a spark of hope for longtime devotees. Eragon Fans. Will there be a remake of the disaster of the original film? Find out if there is a chance for a Eragon redemption here.

It seems like every old TV show, movie, or book series these days gets a second chance. With reboots of classic TV shows like iCarly Where Gossip Girl, it’s safe to say we all get a little nostalgic. Hey, if the failure Percy Jackson the movie series has a second chance in 2021, so who can say Eragon can not ? So what is the likelihood that the fantasy series could come back and get another hit?
Well it seems likely, as recently fans around the world have been clamoring for a Eragon redesign campaign. Loyal fans of the book series who were disappointed in 2006 by the disaster Eragon movie gathered on Twitter to ask Disney Plus to recreate the movie. After all, it was Christopher Paolini, the author of the original novels, who called on fans to join this campaign in the first place.
On June 20, 2021, legendary author Christopher Paolini tweeted to his fans: Bring the thunder to the Alagaësians! Let @Disney hear you roar! Use the hashtag #EragonRemake, mention @Disney in the body of the tweet and let them know that we want to see a good adaptation of Eragon! It included a video of animated dragons flying through dark clouds with lightning and thunder. And of course the fans were 100% on board.

We need the remake
The people have really spoken. Christopher Paolini’s tweet for a Eragon The remake of the film has met tons of agreement from fans who have waited in frustration for the past few years to see their favorite book series have another chance to make a true live-action remake. The hashtag #EragonRemake even started popping up around the world on Twitter. Come on Disney, give people what they really want!
Some fans even went out of their way to photoshop what potential Eragon movie advertising campaign may look like, and some have even created their own takes of a Eragon animation. Christopher Paolini also included part of his website in the campaign. After all, that exact scenario is how Percy Jackson has been given the green light for a reboot, so we can’t fault Paolini and her fans for filming their picture on Disney as well.
So what do you think? Will Disney listen to what people want? What would you think of a Eragon redo on Disney Plus? Would you prefer to see an Eragon TV series or a Eragon movie franchise? Let us know your opinions in the comments.
