‘Merlin Saga’ set to film in the fall, Ridley Scott’s first film will be ‘Merlin: The Lost Years’

Disney and Ridley Scott’s Merlin Saga adaptation, which may start filming this fall, got official character breakdowns, as fans learn quite a bit more about the new film franchise.

HN Entertainment has obtained character breakdowns for Merlin Saga and reports that Scott is aiming to begin production sometime this fall, shortly after he finishes on Raised By Wolves. Check out the details below.

Scott’s Merlin Saga movie will be based primarily on the first book in Barron’s series. HN further reports that the film’s current working title is The Lost Years, which only supports that idea.

Most of the characters/details aren’t too different from the original literary versions:

EMRYS (MALE LEAD 12-15). Caucasian. The boy who would become the legendary wizard Merlin. Emotionally erratic. Eccentric. Prone to wild mood swings. Brilliant. Sometimes, he is calm and controlled, thoughtful, with a hint of mad whimsy.

BRANWEN (FEMALE LEAD 30-40): Caucasian. Emrys’ mother.

RHIANNON (FEMALE LEAD 12-20): Open to any ethnicity. Seeks Emrys’ assistance in stopping a terrible blight which is now beginning to kill the forest she lives in.

SHIM (MALE LEAD 20-40): Open to any ethnicity. A dwarf-sized giant, befriend Emrys.

RHITA GAWR (FEMALE LEAD 30-50): Open to any ethnicity. An evil spirit who wants to control Fincayra before moving on to Earth. Enemy to Emrys, the film’s villain.
