There's going to be a Watch series apparently according to Secret Squirrel info we got at Rotterdam :D

Unseen Academicals will be another movie without Death. Shame. Even a cameo would do for me, but we didn't get one in Going Postal, so I'd wager Unseen Academicals will be the same.


Death will have a cameo. Because it's an important plotpoint that the orc is immortal.

I WANT A NIGHT WATCH MOVIE! It's the best book, IN MY OPINION! I love the way Pratchett plays out Vimes' character as he tries to teach his younger self how to be a good copper. Young Vimes cracks me up with the obvious stupidity. Carcer would be interesting to watch because he's plain mad and as for Nobby Nobbs... well, I'd love to see a young version of him.

You can't fill a movie with the events from NW. Sorry, but you just can't. As a novel it works well, but as a tv movie...YMMV of course, but...just no.

Welcome lyttle182! :D

I would suggest keeping an eye on PJSM Prints news page as I believe they've posted there before.

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum lyttle182 :D . There's nothing on their twitter feed yet and that's usually a good place to check :)
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

tv ankh morpork

Postby Mr Hennerzz » Fri Aug 05, 2011 2:15 pm

Hi I am a new reader of discworld but i love the mob TV films i was wondering why in going postal ankh morpork looks so different than to the color of magic. I think how they showed the city in the color of magic was very accurate or is it a change of season or something

can anyone tell me
Mr Hennerzz
