    From page to theatre and screen, what makes some stories work so well in different formats while other stay confined to one medium ?

    What makes a story get reused over and over again? From The Wizard of Oz to The Lion King and Mary Poppins, whats makes a story so popular and loved that is can be recycled from medium to medium with reboots and sequels? Stories like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory have been made into movies, plays and musicals while others like Star Wars and The Incredibles were left in their original mediums despite being loved by many.

    • I think this is an interesting topic, especially due to the way you approach it. At first, while reading it, everything seemed obvious, until I came to your points about Star Wars and The Incredibles. Why have these ridiculously popular franchises not been introduced in a different medium? Then I did think of what is taking place at Disney with the Jedi Academy. I guess, maybe, this is a more accessible means of representing this franchise? This is a good topic that I would love to read what someone writes about this. – danielle577 5 years ago

    • This is an interesting topic. In the article, I suggest the writer address the effects of translating big movies, like "Star Wars" and "The Incredibles" to the small stage--play or musical. Some stories work well in different formats. "The Wizard of Oz" can work in different mediums, but technically advanced movies like "Star Wars" and "The Incredibles" rely on special effects and technology to bring the story to life.In the article, you can discuss the challenges of adapting certain movies to a different medium, and how it can or cannot work. – RoderickP 5 years ago

    • Do not forget that Star Wars actually has a very large expanded universe crossing multiple mediums (though currently no longer canon). Most of this takes place outside of the film saga and includes books, television shows, and video games. You can play Lego versions of the six movies, experience key battles on the front lines in Battlefront and Rogue Squadron games, and even explore the galaxy far away an even longer time ago during the Old Republic era in an MMO and two acclaimed RPGs.Your point still stands, that some are adapted more often than others, and it is still an interesting point to examine. – nsnow 5 years ago

    • I would also recommend writing about the creators of works that fight or have fought to keep their work out of the theatre or off the big screen. – Austin Bender 5 years ago

    I find it quite interesting how these types of Faery Tales change over the years. Not only do many of them (the little mermaid, the ice queen, cinderella) become much lighter but keep similar plots, Beauty and the beast does not end up much lighter because it already starts with more of a mix of tones than most of the Disneyed stories.

    This is a fascinating analsys of the detail in Pixar movies. My favourite is still The Incredibles.

    I have to say I completely disagree and have trouble believing you have read all of books seeing as they are none of them very similar. Harry Potter is an easy book to read but to suggest that this makes it simple or less complex is a show of absurd ignorance. If you read it, you’ll find that while easy to read, it is designed to convey an extraordinarily detailed world without compromising the experience or making it less accessable to younger readers. It requires much thought to read the series, what with the carefully planned plots and the deep complex characters to think about. I highly recommend you read it someday.
