So we have some casting news about the Shadow and Bone/Six of Crows series coming to Netflix and it looks really good. But it does lead to probably my biggest personal hang- up in YA fantasy casting adaptations.
Directed By: Anne Fletcher
Dumplin’ is based on the Julie Murphy book of the same name and is showing on Netflix. Which is generally having a good run of YA adaptations. It’s about Willowdean Dixon a plus size girl who as form of protest (and grief) joins her mother’s beloved beauty pageant and inspires several other girls who normally wouldn’t to do the same.
