Adapting the Silm

Adapting the Silm [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree that a film of The Silmarillion would be a bad idea. It would be nearly impossible to make, simply by the nature of the book. And I think it's not material easily amenable to a movie.

I would not mind a bit if a really good mini-series was made from The Children of Hurin, but that's highly unlikely--the rights to that will probably never be sold for such an adaptation, but IF such a series could be done, it could be well-done by the right people.

I'd love to see Smith of Wooton Major done as an old-style animation special, similar in style to The Snowman. No CGI, just lovely water-color soft old-fashioned animation.

OTOH, I have thought for a long time that the tale of Beren and Luthien would make a spectacular opera! I can imagine as grand opera, maybe even with the libretto in Quenya.
