YA Movie News

-Dreamworks is moving ahead on a sequel to How to Train Your Dragon as well as an animated TV show based on the movie. The movie is based on the book series by Cressida Cowell. Thanks to Cynopsis Kids for the news.

-Bill Condon has been named as the director for Breaking Dawn. He also directed Dreamgirls. I thought the movie was going to be split into two, but reports now are saying that's not final. So there is still hope they won't be dumb enough to split the films. I'm still not sure I even want to see Breaking Dawn as a movie. Thanks to
Cynopsis Kids for the news.

-As I've mentioned before, ABC Family has two shows this summer based on teen novels. Both have Facebook fan pages-
Pretty Little Liars Facebook and Huge Facebook. You can also catch a sneek peak at Pretty Little Liars here.

And I'm sure you've seen it, but here's the latest trailer for Eclipse. Is it just me, or does Edward look even more pasty? And can someone remind me when it snows? I don't remember that part!

  1. Remember how freezing it is in the woods, which is why Jacob has to share the sleeping bag with Bella? That's where the snow comes in, I think.

  2. If Breaking Dawn was just one movie that would be sooooo much better! But I feel the same, not even sure I can handle it as a movie. And Im SO excited about Pretty Little Liars

  3. Fer-I remember that part-I guess I just didn't picture it as being snowy when I read the book!

    Frankie-I really think it only needs to be one movie-two would just be too boring! Not enough happens to make it two movies. And the more I see of Pretty Little Liars, the more excited I get!

  4. I agree that Breaking Dawn should only be one movie. There was so much extra in the book that, to my mind, should have been edited. I think it could easily be condensed to one movie.

    I also heard they were going to make a 3-D version. I can't imagine watching the birthing scene in 3-D. Gross!

  6. Pretty Little Liars looks fun! I haven't read the books, but I might check out at the least the first one at some point.

  7. Breaking Dawn should stay one long movie. It's not like there haven't been movies like four hours long. Harry Potter anyone? Oh, and the snow scene is that whole throw-down with Victoria in the mountains. Tent scene. Ring a bell? Lol.

  8. I am super excited about Pretty Little Liars being made into a t.v show. With the producers of Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl I hope it will be a success! :)
