5 Books That Need Editing Like Eragon

Movies and TV shows that adapt books on screen don’t always get it right. However, for some books, there is a glimmer of hope. As the mania continues to sweep through Hollywood, in recent years, we’ve been fortunate enough to have some excellent novels skip their disastrous first adaptations and start a new life, such as A series of bad events and next Percy Jackson A series on Disney+ honestly couldn’t be worse than the movie.

The same goes for Eragon. When I was younger, I absolutely loved Eragon books. They were right when children and youth literature realized this Harry Potter Not only was it an anomaly, but children could read books longer than Cam Janssen. Not only that, but they realized that fiction was a viable genre with plenty to explore in a smaller context. Likes Harry Potterwas soon followed by a movie adaptation and then… well, it didn’t go well.

But the dragon-focused series is getting another shot at a big time, as a new series based on Eragon It was announced to be in development for Disney+ earlier this year. This means that the iconic book series has another chance to receive the proper mod…but why stop there? Let’s look at five more books that should receive the extension Eragon treatment or treatment:

Princess Diaries

Unlike some of the other entries on this list, I honestly love Princess Diaries Movies – it’s great fun! Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews are a delight, and they are two great movies to watch on a rainy day. However, the movies are a world away from a book series that ends up in 10 books, two adult sub-plots, and several novels and short stories. There is so much that was missing or misunderstood in the movie that I would love to see it on the small screen and nine books of lines that aren’t even touched.

There’s drama, friendship, misunderstandings, and a lot of hearts that can come up in a series akin to books. The story of a teenage girl who suddenly discovers that she is the princess of a small European principality and has to deal with the consequences is truly unique. Ditch the high school perils in a coherent but not overly dramatic fashion, and you have a sensationally unfamiliar concept.

enchanted ella

enchanted ella It is a very whimsical and funny movie, and one that deserves to be watched and re-watched in itself. Unfortunately, it is also a very poor modification of the source material. Retaining the names of the main characters and the central thought of “Ella must be obedient” is basically where the similarities end.

The book tells a fascinating story about the inner strength and courage of a dream. This anecdote could very well be told in the movie, although it would be less energetic and a bit less thoughtful. However, there is a reason the book has been a children’s classic for over 20 years and that alone deserves a second chance. As Amazon has proven, there is always room for another Cinderella Twist, so why not make it one we already know is good?

Artemis Fowl

Not sure who wrote and directed Artemis Fowl They’ve already picked up a book in their lives, because they definitely haven’t picked up that book. The Artemis Fowl The movie is like the physical outcome of a phone game – someone, originally, had read the books and told the plot to the next person, but by the time it ended up on screens, it was a total beast.

A tale of a criminal mind’s child, his butler, a technologically advanced centaur, and an exceptionally brave dwarf all backed up by a touch of the classic “There Are Fairies Live Among Us” that does so well in the books are slaughtered so poorly. As any fan of the series will tell you, it’s a great, action-packed tale that deserves to reach a wider audience and could do very well as a movie or film, so I’m going to make my watch for a Disney+ remake in 10 years.

The darkness is rising

I took one look at The . trailer Researcher: Darkness is rising And I went “definitely not”. I’m biased, as it’s my favorite book series, but it would be nice if an edit was made by a team that has already read the books. Or scrape into the Wikipedia page. Or even stood next to them in a bookstore.

My standards are pretty low at this point, but with blocks of fantasy media hitting screens right now – Lord of the rings series, a Game of thrones Brickwell, wheel of time Series – There is definitely room for the story of a young adult with a unique blend of magic, reality and nostalgia for the English language, topped with a bittersweet touch. I mean, it’s better than turning it into a Hollywood-style “choice one” story. Additionally, the new adaptation can be greatly improved by starting at least with the first book in the series, rather than the second book. But maybe this is just me.


Disworld Modifications ranged from “acceptable” to “dear God, what is this thing”. Both ends of the spectrum are totally a shame, because the world created by Terry Pratchett holds a lot of opportunity. There is a wealth of characters to play with, different factions and groups to explore, and 41 books to draw plots and inspiration from.

a Disworld The TV series or movie doesn’t have to be a direct adaptation, but it could be something out of this world with the same tone — funny tongue in cheek satire with a dose of heart — that made the books so lovable in the first place. The point is that there are plenty of options and plenty of room to play with, and Disworld Definitely deserves better than TV fans remember the hour.
