  • I’ve always hoped for an animated adaptation of The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau. It’s such a creative concept with a big mystery element to everything that goes on not to mention that the fate of the world rests in the hands of two 12-year-olds. Given the versatility of animation, it would be such a good medium to illustrate the concept and have the audience identify with the characters.
    I’m aiming to become a director of animated films some day and an adaptation of City of Ember has been on my mind for a while now. I’m even considering making it a musical since it feels like a story where songs can help many of its plot points flow and stand out. It’s a movie idea I’m very passionate about, and one of my biggest driving forces to break into feature animation.

    The Mennyms need to be made in stop-motion

  • I know that Percy Jackson and the Olympians was already made into a film series (a VERY, VERY bad one) but I think it deserves a second chance as an animated tv show. DreamWorks has done a great job on Netflix, I think it would be a step in the right direction.

    I always thought the Magic Tree House book series, along with the Junie B. Jones book series would be perfect material for animation. I’m aiming to have a career in animation someday, and when I have my own studio, I’d like to adapt both into animated features.

      Oh yeah, MAGIC TREE HOUSE! I hadn’t thought of that before, but now that you mention it, that might work!

    Barkbelly is a good book that I can highly recommend, but the second book, Snowbone, unfortunately isn’t that great so maybe just one movie is good enough. Another book that I can recommend is Goose Girl. It’s like a classic Disney princess story and would do well as an animated movie as well as other books in the series.

    My list

    1. “A Song of Fire and Ice” yes I know the tv series is good yada yada. But it has been limited due to circumstances beyond their control. Such as the Young actors outgrowing the story which has caused the show to speed up the story to a point we barely remember the kids growing up at all , the other is the budget which has robbed us of the Direwolves and many big battles in the books etc. All these problems go away in Animation.

    2. “The James Bond Series” Again the movies are good and we got that awful James Bond Jr cartoon in the 90s. But Bond would be amazing in Animation. Not only you have the great adventures, but the exoctic locales, and outrageous villains. Plus I want to see Bond in long form television for once.

    1. Savvy – a phenomenal book series that would make for an excellent trilogy of movies.
    2. The Book of Lost Things – apparently the inspiration of Over the Garden Wall though that series deviated vastly from the book.
    3. Tunnels – would make a great series with over 2000 pages of material. Would also make for a horrifying stop motion feature.
    4. The Ranger’s Apprentice
    5. The 39 Clues

    I would like to see His Dark Materials.
