Last year, I started recapping Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain series chapter by chapter, as a way to indulge my fandom and remember what it was like when I read the books for the first time. So far, I’ve made it through three books in the series (if you’d like to re-experience them in order along with me, click the links below to go to chapter 1 of each book, then click Next Post to advance to the next chapter). New readers, be warned – my childlike joy at revisiting these books is tempered with a fair amount of grown-up cynicism! Feel free to take me to task in the comments, but please know that I snark with love.
Since I started this recap project, to my utter surprise and excitement, Disney has announced plans to make a live-action Prydain movie! If you’re as breathless with anticipation as I am and feel like the film can’t come soon enough, here are a few awesome sites put together by other Prydain fans to tide you over:
Do you have a Prydain fan site, or did I miss your favorite one? Post a link in the comments below, or connect with me on Facebook or Twitter! I’ll be taking a short hiatus before coming back to recap book 4, Taran Wanderer. Exciting things are afoot, so I encourage you to subscribe to my newsletter for the latest updates!
