Avalon: Web of Magic is an upcoming computer-animated series based on the book series. The project was revealed in 2017, with the cartoon currently slated for production from July 2019 to 2020/2021. It is being directed by Robert Mandell and co-written by him and Rachel Roberts.
Emily Fletcher, Adriane Charday, and Kara Davies, three very different girls-turned-mages (mages are highly skilled "magic users"), band together to protect and find Avalon, the very source of all magic. Each girl has a bonded animal and magic stone; their animal friends help them on their magical journeys through the different worlds along the Web of Magic. The safety of the Magic Web, and the worlds it connects together, hangs on their success as they battle two main antagonists, the Dark Sorceress and the Spider Witch, who wish to harness the tremendous magical energy and magic of Avalon and distort the Magic Web for their own evil ends. The titular Web of Magic is a web on the magical, mystical plane of existence, connecting all worlds and planets with each other through mystical portals.
Avalon is a co-production between Bridgegate Pictures, Minds Eye Entertainment, Moving Pictures Media and Red Sky Entertainment, being made by the American company voyager.world and Ukrainian animation studios Film UA Animagrad. It is mainly written and directed by Robert Mandell, creator of Princess Gwenevere / Starla and the Jewel Riders, and will feature Canadian voice actors. The show is going to "pretty much follow the books, breaking them up in serialized eps" with 26 episodes for the first season. The books' author Rachel Roberts is "in charge of story editing and wrote the pilot script."
