Interesting!! It's hard to believe it's been 30 years (more than 30!) since it was last made. I loved that version so much! (Had it memorized word-for-word. Literally.) But I'm actually willing to give a new one a chance. It sounds like they're hoping to make it a series. That could be a lot of fun. I'd have to put aside all of my ideas of who should look like what, and give it a chance as a "never-before-seen" kind of show for me to be able to give it a fair shake. But I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it.

I was right on board with you, Lisa, until I read about the 2012 thing! thud Stop the insanity!!! Noo

They lost me when I read that, too. I hope they get their wits about them.

In this article they said that they didn't mean that it was going to be a contemporary setting, but in another article they had specifically said something about having Anne posting on Facebook. She certainly couldn't do that in a period piece. I'm guessing that they changed their minds about it being modernized when they saw that people weren't going to embrace THAT big of a change. Thanks for the news!! I'm glad to see that it'll be early 1900s after all!

I was wondering about that, Lisa. When the original article said she could see Anne posting on Facebook, I didn't get the impression they meant to set it in current times, only that they meant Anne being a woman far ahead of her time would be the type of person to be using Facebook if she were real and around today.

Part of me likes the idea of digging deeper, but another side to me says if LMM wanted to dig deeper she would have done it. How can anyone except the original author know all about her characters?

I agree.I think maybe she didn't dig deeper,maybe she want the readers to have theire own idea about what may have happened before green gables..

Well glad it's gonna be a period movie. Smile

If that was the only article that they'd mentioned it in and the only quote, I'd agree. But that wasn't the only article where I'd read them mention modern things, and a contemporary setting. I wish I could find them now! On the other hand...I have been very tired the past few days, and it's possible that I just misunderstood their phrasing. ....I don't understand what "contemporary" would have to do with digging deeper into characters, though.

I agree. Any "digging deeper" is pure guess work, and would be based on the interpretations and opinions of the current-day writer, rather than what LMM had actually written those characters to be. That's fine for fan fiction, but when it's a production that bears the name of the original author, it really should be as close to what she wrote it as possible.

I think the way the articles were worded made it really confusing as to whether or not the film was going to be contemporary.... just saying that they were going to make it more contemporary puts present age right into a person's mind.

I too was thinking that it was going to be a contemporary setting which really wasn't completely working out well in my mind!

That was how I had understood it as well. Pretty interesting news!

The books are filled with so much adventure and a lot of it didn't make it to the original series, hopefully they can include them in this version. It would be neat if by the end of the series, they could have Megan Follows play her in an adult scene, maybe a scene of Anne looking back on her life or something. I'm sure Cheryl could think of a scene for Megan right? Smile

I am not too excited about it right now though because it is a long way off till we see a final product lol

So is it gonna be a TV Series or just a Movie?

I am glad it won't be a Modern film but i would of been open for that to, I am just not gonna watch it in hopes of it being just as good as it was with Megan in it I'll Watch it in hopes of it being a good Clean Family film that are so rare these days Smile
