Movies Based On Books With the Least Similarity to the Book
The Top Ten
There were only two aspects of this movie that are also n the book the fact that food falls from the sky, and the fact that they escape the island when the falling food becomes too bad. Absolutely nothing else is similar
This should be number one. At least with HTTYD, the characters have the same names. With this, not even THAT is right. - LarkwingFlight
Get this to number 1, it practically just named itself after the book. - 445956
This is almost nothing like the book it's based on. - PerfectImpulseXV 2 Comments
I am fan of dragons and why I give my vote to this great and powerful animated film
The movie is amazing, but still not like the books at all. That isn't a particularly bad thing, as long as it's great! - Emberflight_of_StormClan
Love this movie but I haven't read the books
The movie SUUUCS!
THE BOOK IS A MASTERPIECE
Nothing like movie
It's different but not even close to the profanity that is httyd movie.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 are so creepy
Despite the edge, It is also a meme.
It is nothing like the book AT ALL!
Firstly, there is no portal to The Cat's world.
There is also a ton of adult jokes that was meant for The Grinch but Ron Howard cut it out. Read the book then watch the movie and you will see. No wonder it has only got 10% on Rotten Tomatoes!
I liked the movie and the names of the characters
Greg and Rodrick never got along in the book. The movie, meanwhile, also takes it's plot from the THIRD book, rather than the second. - LarkwingFlight
Mostli based of of the book
The book and the movie both have zombies, but that's the end of the similarity.
Trust me, it is not like the book
Well it's a comic strip
It's nothing like the book at all. Or the radio series. - PositronWildhawk
Agreed what happened to those joke and the ending was not at all like the book - Toucan
Well, it's still a great movie! Go see PhantomStrider's list of "Top 10 Best Disney Movies" for proof since this actually shows us innovation!
I believe P.L. Travers was very ticked off about it as well
This movie made me mad even as a young child who loved the book. - LarkwingFlight
This movie BARELY relates to the book, other than the main story and the characters. Roscuro comes from a ship, there's a cat for some reason, Gregory doesn't die, now he's somehow Mig's dad, and Despereaux and Roscuro are friends.
