The Colour of Magic
Trailer: The Colour of Magic
Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic is a two-part television adaptation of the bestselling novels The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett. The fantasy film was produced for Sky One by The Mob, a small British studio, starring David Jason, Sean Astin, Tim Curry and Christopher Lee as the voice of Death. Vadim Jean both adapted the screenplay from Pratchett’s original novels, and served as director.
Terry Pratchett’s The Colour of Magic was broadcast on Sky One, and in High Definition on Sky One HD, on Easter Sunday and 24 March 2008. The first part drew audiences of 1.5 million, with the second part attracting up to 1.1 million viewers. The film was well received by fans, but drew mixed reviews from critics, who generally praised the acting talent of the all-star cast, but criticised the film’s script and direction.
The production is the second adaptation of Pratchett’s novels as a live-action film, following the successful release of Hogfather on Sky One over Christmas 2006. A third adaptation, Going Postal, followed in 2010 with more planned for the future.
