Terralain...the lost valley of stars, the hidden city where every rabbit was meant to be equal. The idea of Terralain has permeated The Green Ember series, and even made its way into one of the Tales of Old Natalia. Despite this, we still no very little about the history of this mysterious community of rabbits-though, considering how S. D. Smith loves to tease us with hints of a greater mythology, it's hardly alone in that regard. Still, we know enough for me to posit some theories, which I thought I'd share here:
- Following The Wreck and Rise of Whitson Mariner, Galt presumably takes off to found Terralain. I'd imagine he kept some sort of contact with Whitson's rabbits; otherwise, the idea of Terralain's name being known to them, even as a myt…
So the topic of a possible Green Ember film series is something I've brought up before, and there's probably lots more that could be discussed on the subject. However, of late I've been thinking over the idea of trailers for such films, and in particular how such trailers might be accompanied by music. These would presumably be the teasers, as I imagine full trailers would follow the usual Hollywood pattern and feature character dialogue from the film. However, I have a couple of ideas with regards to such teasers that I wanted to put out there.
I figure that The Green Ember or Ember Falls-currently favoring the former-would be set to The Mended Wood, with scenes reflecting the lyrics. I imagine flocks of birds flying through the air, savage a…Read more >
So we know from S. D. Smith that we shouldn't expect the next installment in The Green Ember series for a while. I'm okay with that, as it sounds like he really wants to make sure he does it right, and I'm not going to complain about a creator wanting to make sure his creation is the best it can be. Still, I figure while we're waiting, I'll share a few predictions I have about what might happen in the book, and see what others have to say as well.
- The title will presumably continue the theme of the previous books, and include "Ember" somewhere. I'm thinking something like Ember Burns (or Burning) would work. Of course, Mr. Smith could always throw us a curveball and do a totally different title. If that's the case, I could see The Ruling(or Whitso…
So a recent Instagram from S. D. Smith caught my eye with regards to this topic, and I thought I'd put the question out there. Were they to make a movie or a "TV" series based on The Green Ember series, who would you like to see cast as various characters?
I honestly need to put some more thought into it myself. The only real candidate I've come up with is Kevin Conroy for the voice of Helmer. If you're wondering why, it's because Joel Clarkson's performance of Helmer gave me and my sister a Batman vibe.Read more >
So I'm sure we're all excited for The Wreck and Rise of Whitson Mariner: Tales of Old Natalia II and eagerly anticipating The Green Ember Book 4 afterwards. But...Read more >
