War and Peace Mini Series Update!

Remember how we read War & Peace a few years ago? Well a new mini-series will be coming to our TVs next year and it will be airing on Lifetime and A&E and the History channel etc. I'm excited!

I'm also excited about the casting. Lily James will be Natasha and I like this casting. I didn't see Cinderella, but I do remember her from Downton Abbey and I feel she has a certain It factor for this type of role. Also, James Norton! Worst villain in Happy Valley, lovable priest sleuth in Grantchester!

The only War & Peace adaptation I've seen was the one with Audrey Hepburn and it was dreadful. This one might also be dreadful, based on this "Many elements of the lengthy novel are expected to be omitted from the adaptation, as the series will focus on human interactions, romance and family conflict." I mean okay, good, just don't try to sell me Pierra and Natasha epic love!

To be honest, I already forget huge chunks of the book, which means this will be coming out at the perfect time, when I'm a bit fuzzy on the details of the book so I'll probably think it's awesome.

What do you guys think????
