Editor says, what if Ursula K. Le Guin backed a movie adaption of A Wizard of Earthsea? Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).
Editor says, in reality adaptation attempts for AWoE have been unsuccessful. BBC Radio produced a radio-play version in 1996 narrated by Judi Dench. An original mini-series titled Legend of Earthsea was broadcast in 2005 on the Sci Fi Channel. It is based very loosely on A Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan. Le Guin has stated that she was not pleased with the result. Studio Ghibli released an adaptation of the series in 2006 titled Tales from Earthsea. The film very loosely combines elements of the first, third, and fourth books into a new story. Le Guin has commented with displeasure on the results.
