In the begining

"The Colour of Magic" (2008)

I finally saw the British production of "The Colour of Magic" (2008) Which is a two part miniseries that covers the first two books of the Discworld series: "The Colour of Magic" and "The Light Fantastic".

They had to make some changes and trim some bits, as usual for books made into movies. But it is beautiful! And kept the spirit of the books. Very much in the same style as "Hogfather" (2006)

David Jason plays Rincewind, Sean Astin plays Twoflower, Tim Curry! plays Trymon, Jeremy Irons! plays The Patrician, Christopher Lee! plays the voice of Death, and Terry Pratchett himself! plays Astrozoologist 2 (with just one line, the last line of the show). It is so cool that they got such great actors for this show. Sean Astin reminds me of Michael Shanks in this part.
