    1. Only movies for which production has actually begun, or those confirmed from the horse's mouth, are included in the list.
    2. The release dates may be wrong in some, differing from when the were initially broadcast to when the first became available on VHS or DVD.

    As the Guide to Pratchett's Written Works has been a success, I thought fans might find it handy to have another thread dedicated to Pratchett on the big screen.

    So above is a work in progress on which his novels I know were adapted over the years.

    The release dates may be wrong in some, differing from when the were initially broadcast to when the first became available on VHS or DVD.

    Great idea. You could put them in chronological order, within the same categories though.
  4. TheJackal Member

    Thanks Mal! I originally thought the order should be when each book was published but the year each film was made seems better alright.

    Should I put up links, to it's wiki page for example? I'd avoid links to/mention of where it can be bought as that's advertising, whether meant to be or not.
  5. Maljonic Administrator

    Yeah, I think wiki and imdb is ok - unless you want to painstakingly write your own descriptions. :)

    Huzzah! As much as I love the DW books, I still have a very special fondness for Good Omens, it was my first...

    List updated. PTerry has his own production company now called Narrativia.

    They will be making The Watch (in 13 parts) and Good Omens.

    Not sure if this mean the planned series on the Nghtwatch by PrimeFocus productions is now not going ahead

    Updated for The Duel

    the Discworld inspired animation being made by Giant Animation Studios and the Animation Hub -animators from Ballyfermot College of Further Education and Trinity College Dublin.
