Isn’t eight Potter movies enough? Along with the upcoming Potter spinoff? Obviously not. But really, is there any person out there who doesn’t want all her work adapted in some form? I don’t think so.
It was just recently announced that her first two Cormoran Strike novels will be adapted for TV by the BBC. I read crime novels all the time, but I haven’t read either The Cuckoo’s Calling or The Silkworm just yet. I’d like to get through that other series she wrote first. And I’m only one book in. The good thing about these books being adapted is that they’re not going to the big screen, but instead they’ll be adapted for TV. The major differences between a TV and theatrical adaptation are obvious. Try telling the story in roughly two hours or do so over the course of an entire season. I vote TV.
Also, her book The Casual Vacancy will be adapted into a miniseries set to air in February. I think.
And since this is turning into a JK Rowling news flash, did y’all hear (which I’m sure you have) that she’s releasing 12 days’ worth of stories for Christmas on Pottermore? Well she is. So get to reading them.
Are you excited for any of her upcoming adaptations?
