Looks like Sci-Fi missed the boat on a sequel or series:

Tales from Earthsea

Well, it's a whitewash too, isn't it?

Not to mention that it seems to be a jumble of The Farthest Shore and Tehanu. And if Howl's Moving Castle is anything to go by, we might have a disaster on our hands.

Re: Ghibli Movie

I am looking forward to Miyazaki's animated Earthsea. At least it will have some depth, humor, and character development.

SciFi's Earthsea story was of course chopped drastically to fit the time allowed for airing. It was an okay adaptation but necessarily lost a lot of the wonder we were hoping for, relying heavily on some slam-bang special effects. The lead actor did not physically resemble Geb. Not his fault.

Note: If you call HMC a disaster, that means you didn't catch the thematic subtleties about aging and the power of love.

Ah I saw that it was alright. I'm a humonguos fan of the original books, but whenever you go to see a movie you do realise that the producer has only so much time and funding to recreate it - also a lot of the experience you get from a book is impossible to recreate on screen. I was reasonably satisfied with it, keeping that in mind.
