Nickelodeon Reportedly Adapting '5 Worlds' Graphic Novel Series

Nickelodeon has reportedly acquired the rights to adapt the hit 5 Worlds middle-grade graphic novel series!

5 Worlds

The news was revealed by Kane Lee (The Tiger’s Apprentice), the Chief Content Officer of Baobab Studios, who is serving as a producer on the project for Nickelodeon.

The status of the project, and whether it'll be a movie or TV series, is currently unknown. Since the news was revealed in 2023, a lot of changes have been happening behind-the-scenes at Paramount Global, with the company cutting projects to focus on producing new content that appeals to a audience, with several Nickelodeon titles canceled.

Described as "Star Wars meets Avatar: The Last Airbender", in the 5 Worlds, the Five Worlds are on the brink of extinction unless five ancient and mysterious beacons are lit. When war erupts, three unlikely heroes discover there’s more to themselves—and more to their worlds—than meets the eye..
• Oona Lee, the clumsiest student at the Sand Dancer Academy, is a fighter with a destiny bigger than she could ever imagine.
• An Tzu, a boy from the poorest slums, has a surprising gift and a knack for getting out of sticky situations.
• Jax Amboy is the star athlete who is beloved by an entire galaxy, but what good is that when he has no real friends?
When these three kids are forced to team up on an epic quest, it will take not one, not two, but 5 WORLDS to contain all the magic and adventure!

First published in 2017, the 5 Worlds graphic novel series is comprised of five titles: The Sand Warrior, The Cobalt Prince, The Red Maze, The Amber Anthem, and The Sand Warrior. The series is written by authors Mark Siegel and Alexis Siegel, and feature illustrations by Xanthe Bouma, Matt Rockefeller, and Boya Sun. The series is published by Random House Books for Young Readers.

5 Worlds has been a hit with fans and critics alike:

R. J. Palacio, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wonder, hails this adventure series as “Mind-blowingly beautiful. . . . A must-read.”
“A magical journey, as fun as it is beautiful!” —Kazu Kibuishi, #1 New York Times bestselling creator of Amulet.

“Bang-zoom . . . a series that promises to be epic.”—The New York Times

“This stellar team has created a gorgeous and entrancing world like no other!” —Noelle Stevenson, New York Times bestselling author of Nimona.
“Epic action, adventure, and mystery will draw you in, but the heartfelt characters and their seemingly impossible journey will keep you turning the pages.” —Lisa Yee, author of the DC Super Hero Girls™ series.
