For those of us who remember the epic and iconic 1980's miniseries about Anne Shirley starring Megan Follows, Jonathan Crombie and Colleen Dewhurst, well you need not wait any more. It's been 27 years since that first miniseries was aired on TV, and it has been decided that it is time for a REMAKE to be made.
I still remember that miniseries. Gosh am I really that old?
In 1985 I would have been 21 years old. So 21 plus 27 is 48.
Yep I am really that old already. *sigh*.
This photo is the first time we all remember seeing Megan Follows as Anne of Green Gables in 1985.
This next photo is Anne Shirley in a movie made in 2008 - based on the Book - Before Green Gables - published in 2008 to celebrate the centenary of the original book - Anne of Green Gables. This young actress's name is Hannah Endicott-Douglas
Anne of Green Gables will be remade as a 13 part TV series by Breakthrough Entertainment. They have been hired by the heirs of L M Montgomery. The series is slated to be made in the summer of 2013.
I wonder who the next Anne of Green Gables will be?
Below are some posts I wrote on this blog back in 2008 about the books and the centenary.
