Remember when I was verklempt about Lizzie Bennet Diaries (LBD) ending? Well LBD inspired a lot of people to try their hand at Literary Youtube Adaptions. I’ve sampled some of them and they are lovely, and I’m sure there are more that I haven’t discovered or kept up with. I’ve created a Youtube playlist of the first episodes of 8 of the cooler Literary Adaptions that I have run into on Youtube. Feel free to skip through the videos to get to one(s) that interest(s) you!
1. Nothing Much To Do- a modern High school Alternative Universe vlog version of William Shakespeare’s Much Ado about Nothing
2. New Adventures of Peter and Wendy- modern adaption of Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
3. Kissing in the Rain- actors reenacting kissing scenes from famous books and movies (Anne! Persuasion! Lily and James Potter!)
4. I Didn’t Write This- visual retelling of famous poems/books (Looking for Alaska by John Green is episode 3, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is episode 6!)
5. Emma Approved- the LBD team takes on Emma by Jane Austen
6. Frankenstein, MD- LBD team+PBS’s genderbent take on Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
7. Autobiography of Jane Eyre- a vlog version of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (that I’m still working on finishing)
8. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries- 😀 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
