SUSAN DENNARD'S FANTASY SAGA THE WITCHLANDS TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES BY JIM HENSON COMPANY! 'WHERE HANDS TOUCH' WW2 TRAILER FROM 'BELLE'S AMMA ASANTE

   'THE WITCHLANDS' SAGA
TO BE TURNED INTO TV SERIES
Here are some good news for all of you fantasy fans out there! Jim Henson Company is going to adapt THE WITCHLANDS saga by Susan Dennard
Witchland's last part comes out next year
into a live action TV series!

The saga, which consists of three books Windwitch, Truthwitch and Bloodwitch, is set in a world where three empires rule and every member of the population is born with a magical skill set, known as a “witchery”. Now, as the Twenty Year Truce in a centuries long war is about to come to an end, the balance of power will fall on the shoulders of two young women Safiya and Iseult, who must accept their fate, and themselves, to survive. Best friends Safi (a Truthwitch) and Iseult (a Threadwitch), as well as the cunning ship captain Prince Merik (a Windwitch), and the mysterious and powerful Aeduan (a Bloodwitch) must navigate warring empires, political machinations, and mercenaries who seek to use their magic for selfish gain.

   'WHERE HANDS TOUCH' TRAILER
FROM 'BELLE' DIRECTOR IS HERE!
Abbie Cornish and Christopher Eccleston also star in the film
First trailer has been released for Amma Asante's (you remember her period set movie Belle) new movie WHERE HANDS TOUCH set in Germany 1944: 15-year old Leyna (Amandla Stenberg), daughter of a white German mother and a black father, lives in fear due to the colour of her skin. When she meets Lutz (George MacKay), the son of a prominent SS officer and a member of the Hitler Youth - mandatory for all Aryan boys since 1936 - the two fall helplessly in love, putting both their lives at risk. An original coming of age story through the eyes of a bi-racial teen as she witnesses the persecution
The movie opens at Toronto Film Festival this month
of Jews and those deemed 'non-pure'. Try to ignore the horrid German accent you will hear from the leads in the trailer below, if you can :)

  1. I don't remember what made me once believe that everyone has some witchery skill. Perhaps, it has to do with the fact that cursing (which is done by most people) might have effect (sometimes).
    Anyway, "The Witchlands" sounds like a monumental saga.

    As for "Where Hands Touch"..
    I have to admit that I've given up watching movies with nazis. I feel I have become too "faint of heart".

    1. I myself have emphatic powers.
      I do believe in the power of curses too.
      I can imagine, Duta, your and mine people have been Hitler's number one people for killing in camps. He killed literally half of all of us then.

  3. Where Hands Touch looks like a very emotional film.

    I do like most of what the Jim Henson company puts out, so I may like The Witchlands.

  4. "Where Hands Touch" looks very powerful. I cannot see it having a happy ending, though.
