    Are you serious!!!! I hope this happens because I love and miss the discworld.

    Although a lot of people have tried to adapt it and it hasn't worked out sadly

    Interesting. The animated movies were okay, but marred by an unacceptably poor quality of animation, even by 1990s standards.

    The live action films to date I feel were hampered by attempting to replicate every part of the book.

    A TV miniseries that is more loosely based on the City Watch might be a good idea in that respect.

    Very interesting. Glad fantasy is starting to take hold finally. TV might be the better medium for much of this if they can ramp up their budgets. (might be possible under Amazon)

    I really need to learn to distinguish "Discworld" and "Ringworld".

    Fingers crossed it works out.

    What’s this about a punk rock thriller though? I hope that’s a pun and they haven’t tried to modernise it too much

    Hmmm, no Nobbs or Colon? And they couldn't get a woman of size to be Lady Sybil? :(

    This sounds bonkers. I'm assuming the Turtle is just swimming through space, whilst the elephants have some sort of EV suit and insanely powerful legs to hole up said disk for an eternal amount of time.

    Meh. I don’t need a “genius” writer’s version of Discworld, just adapt some of Pratchett’s books instead - good this time.

    Wake me when a big budget Mort feature film is announced.

    Yeah I pictured a woman who was chunky yet funky but I guess that’s the entertainment business for you. Bit of a shame but I love the look of Vimes, angua and carrot

    I can’t remember the exact words but I believe the elephants are covered in thaumic energy. So definitely no space suits or stuff like that. It’s not sci fi

    What do they eat? There are no giant plants or water sources in space.

    Magic I guess.

    It’s not really about the giant elephants, it’s about the adventures on the disc and all the wacky and hilarious characters that live there
