6th-Jan-2012 10:43 am - Mabinogion
I was wondering if anyone knew about some retelling/media about the Mabinogion (I'm actually referring to the Four Branches of the Mabinogi). I am looking for movies (even if only some characters of the Mabinogion appear), documentaries, novels, comics etc.
I already know the albums/songs by Heather Dale and Elin Fflur. I also read Mabinogion (Evangeline Walton) and The Chronicles of Prydain (Lloyd Alexander).

Thank you for your attention : D
I've done a rewatch of Merlin season one to write down all the importan
stuff that is treated strangely and with some mistakes in the future
seasons. I'll also rewatch the future season to see how the writers
treated what they had with the first season.

If you are interested:
things about characters, their pasts, their relationships, food,
glasses, reactions and other in the first season of Merlin BBC.

Everything Else;

.kindred soul cracked spirit. it has to end to begin.
In the beginning, there was Khaos.

From it came everything else, and from everything that Khaos was, gods came. You know them from when they were infinite and absolute - their myths, their stories, their legends.

They weren't supposed to die - but worry not, for death is not an end. Their mortal shells hold their immortal souls, a new beginning each turn of the wheel. They bleed. They die.

Khaos collects.

Deities have been reborn once again as mortals in 2010. Welcome to NYC, the cosmopolitan capital of the world, breathe in that fresh air- enjoy that cup of latte (it may well be your last). Your mortal life has been spent spoiled and rich, insignificant with its ease.

It's time to pay up.

Apps & Reserves- Open from 9th till the 16th Open for application: Aztec, Celtic, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, Judeo-Christian, Mesopotamian, Native American, Slavic and Norse. Expect more pantheon openings in the future as plot progresses along.

Warner Bros. has purchased the spec screenplay Arthur and Lancelot from filmmaker David Dobkin.
The script ignited a bidding war between Warner Bros., Fox, and
Universal, which Warner Bros. won with a hefty $2 million bid. The
project is described as a modern reimagining of the King Arthur and Sir Lancelot legendary tales.

David Dobkin will direct from his own screenplay and produce alongside Lionel Wigram. Jeff Kleeman will executive produce Arthur and Lancelot.
The project is budgeted at $90 million, although it isn’t known when production might start on Arthur and Lancelot.



Here’s what Dobkin (whose previous credits include the raunchy comedies Wedding Crashers and the upcoming The Change-Up) said he’s done with the Arthurian legend for Arthur & Lancelot:

I pulled the legend apart. I only kept a few
things. I kept certain characters, I recreated the entire launch of the
legend and why it starts the way that it starts, I don’t want to give
away too much but it’s always had a flaw. I pulled the flaws out, I reinvented the characters as grounded characters. I took a much more realistic and
grounded approach towards everybody, you know why would this character
be this way and why would this character be that way? You know
Arthur’s superpower is compassion and vision. I will tell you this, the
whole thing is wrapped around the birth of democracy as a concept and it’s positing Arthur as the first man to say all men are created equal
