Book to Screen Club

We are back with our special edition of the Pod! Book to Studio Ghibli, where we cover all the adaptations from our favorite animation studio. This week we are looking at the debut film by director Gorô Miyazaki, son of Hayao Miyazaki. Tales from Earthsea was released in 2006, an adaptation of the beloved fantasy series by Ursula K. Le Guin The film adapts four of the book in her series - A Wizard of Earthsea (1968), A Tomb of Atuan (1971), The Farthest Shore (1972), and Tehanu (1990). Our special guest is the brilliant author Jenny Robins. She is the author of the fantastic new graphic novel, Biscuits (2020, Myriad Editions), please check her out on Twitter @jennyrobins and on Instagram @mywordsfly. I'm joined for this epic journey into Studio Ghibli by the talented Lauren O'Farrell and please check out her work out on Instagram and Twitter @deadlyknitshade. As per usual spoilers aplenty! We break down the book and the film and try and figure out whether or not the original is the best or did they improve on the text.
