Today is premiere day for the CWs new show The 100, which is an adaptation of the young adult/sci-fi novel, The 100 by Kass Morgan.
I recently read the book and absolutely adored it!! You can read my review of it HERE. Of course the minute I finished the book I was online looking up who would be playing my favorite characters. I had already seen the commercials but after reading it I had to see if the cast matched up with the one in my head. The girl who is playing Clarke is about the only one who looks close to how I imagined her. I couldn’t even find Glass on the IMDB cast listing, hopefully this is just a fluke and not a sign that her character has been cut from the show =/
From the trailers & sneak peeks I’ve seen so far the show looks like it will be VERY different from the book, in particular it looks a lot more violent. Though it may be different I’m still excited to see the characters and world that Ms. Morgan created. The author herself stated that the show takes the characters on different adventures than in the book, so if you haven’t read it yet don’t worry.
And for those of you who haven’t seen the trailer yet…
Or one better, here’s the first 3 minutes of tonights pilot episode.
