So I’ve decided to muscle in on The Broke and the Bookish‘s fantastic Top Ten Tuesday meme! This week it’s…
🌈 Top Ten Books to Movies we Can’t Wait for 🌈
Book to film adaptations are always exciting. They can be incredible (Lord of the Rings) or pretty terrible (The Hobbit) and I always get just that bit more of a buzz knowing they’ll be based on a book I love! So here goes…
Mockingjay Part II
I’ve definitely enjoyed the Hunger Games films so far, although I was pretty annoyed when I heard they were splitting the last book into 2 films (enough with that already!) Also, it doesn’t hurt to watch the knuckle-chewingly gorgeous Liam Hemsworth as Gale for 2 odd hours. #teamGaleforlife
The Jungle Book
I don’t think I’m really that sold on all these remakes of Disney classics as live-action but the trailer for The Jungle Book looks pretty awesome. I think they’ll be hard pressed to beat the original soundtrack which is definitely one of Disney’s best!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
It’s in the Harry Potter universe so I have no choice but to be excited for Fantastic Beasts! I really enjoyed the book version that J. K. Rowling released for Comic Relief and I don’t think you can go far wrong with having Eddie Redmayne at the helm.
His Dark Materials
OK, it’s not a movie but I was super excited when I heard that Philip Pullman’s ‘Dark Materials’ were going to be made into a television series. The previous movie adaptation of ‘The Northern Lights’ known as ‘The Golden Compass’ was a rather tepid affair. I have great faith in the BBC (their Austen adaptations are always on point) and I really hope they stay true the source material which likes to challenge children, rather than pander to them. Also, it will be filmed in Wales (my home country) so maybe I can be an extra or sneak in the background somewhere!
