The last few weeks have been full of adaptation news, and it’s gotten to the point where I am losing track of which books are being adapted into which media—a very nice problem to have, but still a source of confusion. So I have rounded up all of the recent news, gathered here in one spot for convenience.
Children’s and Middle Grade Adaptations
Mary Poppins Returns has a trailer! And it looks so cute/perfect!
Netflix and CBC have renewed Anne with an E for season 3.
Does She-Ra count as an adaptation? Eh, who cares. There’s a trailer!
Comic Book Adaptations
No one is sure what’s happening with Superman.
Marvel is making use of Disney’s new streaming service to debut solo series for Loki, Scarlet Witch, and more.
Netflix is reimagining Avatar: the Last Airbender as a live action series, with the original creators on board and the promise of a non-whitewashed cast.
The first Captain Marvel trailer is here and IMHO the voice-over kills it.
Bryan Singer is apparently in talks to direct a live action Red Sonja movie, which sounds stinky if you ask me.
I know I said this was ALL the recent news, but there’s always the chance I missed something. Leave a link in the comments!
