Mysha Swallows and Amzons 2016 film (29) RE: Swallows and Amzons 2016 film 20 Aug 16


Actually, while I would have preferred a shot that explained why she was called "Titty", calling her "Tatty" is not so bad as changes go. Titty was called that after "Titty Mouse", and I expect "Tatty" would likewise have been named after "Tatty Mouse" from the same story. I have no idea why one would change the plot, though. What makes the story work is that it's almost completely about the children's own world.

In the Faraway Tree books, quite a few people seem to have been renamed somewhat.

Sailor's prayer's chorus is traditional; otherwise the song is Tom Lewis'.

With my other cap on: Flags of the World has a page on the flags in these books, and their moving picture versions. Is there anyone who noticed flags in the new film and would write me a message about them for FotW?
