10 Exciting Book-To-Movie Adaptations Coming In 2022

Whether you’re searching for a thriller, a nonfiction history book, or a feel-good novel, Hollywood has something to offer for everyone. When we watch a film based on a book that we’ve read, we get a distinct type of experience. It’s also fascinating to watch familiar figures come to life.

Though many people said that the screen adaptation pales in contrast to the brilliance of the book, there are still excellent films. For example, “Harry Potter” was a blockbuster after being adapted from the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. Or “Little Women”, and “The Wizard of Oz” were notable movies that have been based on books. And this year, a new and big stack of books to movies is on its way to us.

Including best-selling novels like “Death on the Nile” by Agatha Christie, and “School for Good and Evil” by Soman Chainani, this year is set to bring plenty of great viewing. Ranging from miniseries to star-studded features movies, here are some of the most anticipated cinematic adaptations to look out for in 2022.

#1 “Peter Pan” by J.M. Barrie – 2022

“Peter Pan” is a story about an orphan who is whisked away to Neverland by fairies, where he meets pirates, fairies, and lost boys.

“Peter Pan” has been adapted several times, however aside from the animated version, many of the live-action remakes have been panned. This new Peter Pan and Wendy will include a more diverse ensemble than previous adaptations, with Alexander Molony, Yara Shahidi, and a slew of other actors.

#2 “Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel” by A.W. Jantha

“Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel” occurs 25 years after the events of the original film. Max and Allison from the previous film have a seventeen-year-old daughter who goes up against the Sanderson sisters on Halloween. The Sanderson sisters return to wreak havoc on high school kids. The forthcoming Hocus Pocus film will follow a similar narrative to the novel. Hocus Pocus is a cult favorite Halloween film, and the sequel may be just as successful.
