Fantasy will always be my favorite genre. And one of the things I love about it is that it has always provided a great source of escapism for everyone. Plus, it makes you believe that magic is real, and things are more extraordinary than they seem — at least for a little while. But I digress. Fantasy is a wonderful genre, no matter the format. Also, when you combine it with the joy of seeing your favorite story on a screen that wonder grows tenfold.
So, in case you hadn’t noticed, I’m talking about fantasy book adaptations! They are so fun to watch, and the ability to see the images inside your head brought to life is truly amazing. If you don’t like the OG adaptations like Lord of the Rings, don’t worry. There are plenty more fantasy book adaptations out there that are worth watching! But if you don’t know what to watch next, I’ve got you covered.
