Book-to-film: The Little White Horse becomes The Secret of Moonacre

Some of you may be familiar with Elizabeth Goudge's odd little fantasy, The Little White Horse.

I'd heard some time back that it was being made into a movie with Colin Firth, but I forgot all about it until I came across this trailer.

No Colin, though--heck, no "Little White Horse"--the film is set to open sometime next summer as The Secret of Moonacre.

Dakota Blue Richards is starring. The sets and costumes look lovely. But scrappy. Elements of other films patched together--Narnia, Golden Compass, Nanny McPhee ...

Besides being nothing like the book. But then, I guess that's why they call it The Secret of Moonacre.

Thanks for posting this! I had heard it was going to be made into a movie, but didn't realize it was coming so soon. I loved the book and while the movie looks to have a lot of changes, I think it'll be a fun one to watch.

I refuse to see this movie.
