Since I just wrote a post about which Fall TV series I’m expecting the most, this is a great time to do a list about the books that I’d love to see made into movies or TV shows! Mind you, this would be in a perfect world, where no one could let down the source material…
Maija’s Top 5 Book to Movie Wish List
1. The Sandman by Neil Gaiman
I’m dreaming of a high budget traditionally animated TV series. Just thinking about all of the gods and angels, dreams and fairies, and most of all the Endless themselves, getting a gorgeous animation treatment makes me sigh wistfully….
2. The Courtney Crumrin series by Ted Naifeh
A series of movies, please! This graphic novel series was optioned by Dreamworks way back in 2007, but it seems nothing came of it. Such a shame! I want to see Courtney and Aloysius kicking ass and making magic!
3. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
This would be a great TV mini series! The historical costumes, the elves & the magic, oh my.
4. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
I know, this is already a Ghibli animation, but I’d love to see this as a live action movie that followed the original plot more closely!
5. His Majesty’s Dragon / Temeraire by Naomi Novik
This one would be a movie, definitely. Dragons and period drama = love.
Which books would you like to see as a movie or TV series, providing there was no chance that they’d be messed up?
