Bad news.
I just discovered that Disney is starting work on a movie that is SUPPOSED to be based on one of my favorite books. But this is Disney we’re talking about, who knows if it will be anything like the original publication.
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is starting production soon.
I want to write the producers and give them some tips, like stick to the book, don’t add bits of plot, etc, but I don’t have an address. Oh well. Let’s just hope that they don’t butcher it…
I don’t know what company did these, but here are a few TERRIBLE shows and movies based on books:
First off, the Redwall series. It was just dreadful. Need I say more?
Ella Enchanted. I haven’t seen the movie, and I won’t, but in previews they make it very silly and light. It’s an excellent book…they totally destroyed it.
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM. That was an awesome book, it was what got me interested in rats!
…the movie was horrible.
Ok, done now. But please band together and give me your support! Anyone with misgivings about Disney doing The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe comment so I know I am not alone!

    All my roommates and I agree with you. That said, we will probably go see it once anyways and then talk amongst ourselves about how bad it was.

    Hey at least LOTR wasn’t done by disney, eh? :-)

    Hannah! Now four college guys are agreeing with you! And one of them is reading the series aloud to the other three in the evenings! I agree and hope the recent changes at Disney will mean they will stick closely to the book. Perchance they will take example from the success of LOTR.

    I read Ella Enchanted, and The Secret of NIHM. You`re so right about the movies. I can`t stand it when they aren`t good.

    Yes! Disney should take LOTR’s example!
    Oh, there’s another thing that bothers me.
    The book was published as Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM, but after that terrible movie came out, they changed the name to The Secret of NIHM.
    goodness.
