It seems that any fantasy property out there is getting some love from Hollywood, and this time it is the graphic novel series by David Peterson entitled Mouse Guard. This movie will be a CG live-action film. If you're wondering what exactly is a CG live-action film, think of the new Jungle Book movie, and place it in a medieval setting where a band of mice protect the common folk.
The graphic series actually just celebrated its 10 year anniversary milestone, it's been translated into 10 different languages, and is seen as one of the most successful independent comic book franchises of the last decade.
Alright, I have to say this before I end the article, as a fan of Brian Jacques, something about this Mouse Guard makes me feel like this series is a fine example of plagiarism of the Redwall series. Now I could be completely wrong because I'm basing this off of just the feeling I get when I read about this series, but what does everyone else think? Or better yet has anyone read both and could you explain the differences?
