Narrativia, the company launched by Discworld writer Terry Pratchett which owns the rights to his characters, creations and writing, have partnered with the Jim Henson Company to create a movie based on his novel, The Wee Free Men.

Rhianna Pratchett, daughter of Terry, will be writing the script. The story tells the tale of a young witch called Tiffany Aching, who finds herself caught up in a battle with the monsters of Fairyland.

Despite always having her trusty frying pan to hand, she enlists the help of a clan of six-inch high man called the Nac Mac Feegles in her epic struggle and together they take on the Queen herself.

Rhianna Pratchett has previously written Rise of the Tomb Raider and Mirror’s Edge. Terry Pratchett died in March 2015.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
