Books on Film: Roald Dahl and Wimpy Kid
Happy New Year!
Two coming soons to keep an eye on . . .
Coming Soon #1
Netflix released this trailer about animated Roald Dahl stories to come. I am cautiously optimistic about this news, especially since they will be animated. Is it just me or is live-action more difficult to pull off? Maybe I’m just scarred after recently watching the live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Vanity Fair backs me up on this).
Coming Soon #2
There’s a Wimpy Kid announcement coming Tuesday on the Today show. Hmm. Is there a spinoff series coming? We’ll find out tomorrow.
