Lionsgate has announced that it will be adapting The Kingkiller Chronicle into a movie and TV show. Lin-Manuel Miranda, a big fan of the series, is even on board to help with music in the on-screen world. What are your hopes and fears for the adaptation?

UPDATE: The Kingkiller Chronicle TV show will air on Showtime and will take place a generation before the events of the books.

Kayti Burt | 57 comments I'm one of those people who is at least willing to give screen adaptations a chance. If they suck, they don't take away from the original for me. However, I'm curious how they're intending to do both a movie AND a TV series. How far as they planning on stretching this world/story?

What a waste of a good story. (And a good Idris Elba.)
