I have mixed feelings about this.If it's cannon we'll have to watch it,even if we don't want to. :( We can't just ignore it and not understand why one character never seems to show up again etc , :? but if it's not cannon it'll feel like the story is wrong* when reading the future books. :|
Why can't they make it about watch books that have already happened. :P

*Both on the book side and series side.

I'd like to know what's happened to Cheery if Igorina is the new head of forensics. Did she get wrapped up in Snuff and I forgot about it? :?

Maybe Cheery will be S.O.C.O. ;)

Or acting as an extra alongside Bouncy :lol:

This is going to go ahead come hell and high water I think - Narrativia (as you can probably tell by the name) is Terry's company and it's now got ALLthe Discworld titles out there back under his control - they confirmed on stage that accountants and lawyers have been involved in the set-up and hold all licences and permissions to go ahead with it.

Not sure how much is meant to go public yet, but this is a legacy project for Terry, driven by his family and closest friends and colleagues with full control over the project. As much as anything in this life besides Death and Taxes it's certain the Watch series and the creation of a Roundworld Ankh-Morpork will happen, the only question mark is when. :D

That was my impression too Jan, especially with Rhianna being part of the writing team. They already have some serious heavy-duty firepower involved with this project and there is no lack of ambition being shown (quite the opposite in my opinion). :D

Is it perhaps a little obsessive that I've bookmarked http://narrativia.com, and check it every day in case it does something?

I had a good long chat with Guy on the last day of convention and this really is a goer. We discussed previous adaptations and where they went wrong and I'm glad to say that he recognised all the faults without specific prompting, he really is immersed in the Discworld and knows how to contact people to check details and get it right without having to botherTerry all the time.

If anyone meets him just say 'No pressure' and watch him curl up and look worried :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

That definitely works on him. :lol: :lol: :lol:

(I spoke to him as well and I agree, I think the project is in very safe hands. )
