Moving Pictures

Cameras roll on the Discworld, but what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill?

Synopsis

‘Holy Wood is a different sort of place. People act differently here. Everywhere else the most important things are gods or money or cattle. Here, the most important thing is to be important.’

Cameras roll, for the first time, on the Discworld when alchemists discover the excitement of the silver screen. But what is the dark secret of Holy Wood hill? As the clichés of Tinsel Town pour into the world, it’s up to the Disc’s first film stars to find out…

Join Victor Tugelbend (‘Can’t sing. Can’t dance. Can handle a sword a little’) and Theda Withel (‘I come from a little town you’ve probably never even heard of’) as they battle the forces of evil and cinema advertising. They’re about to discover that the magic of the silver screen might be powerful enough to put an end to, well, everything.

The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Moving Pictures is a standalone novel.
