Earthsea

   ‘EARTHSEA’ FANTASY SAGA
TO BE TURNED INTO MOVIES!

Producer Jennifer Fox will turn Ursula K. Le Guin’s fantasy classic EARTHSEA into a series of movies. Ursula sold her the rights before she died at the beginning of this year. As ‘Deadline’ reports, the saga includes five novels and eight short stories set in a fantasy archipelago of hundreds of islands, imperilled by those who use magic to gain power and upset its delicate balance. Most of its characters are people of colour and the emphasis is on understanding nature and human nature, not possessing power over them.

Ursula wrote more than 20 books in her career

Tomb Raider arrives into cinemas this March
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. She must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. As you can see yourself below, the new trailer is as lifeless as Alicia’s acting!
