A Wizard of Earthsea

Adaptations

A condensed, illustrated version of the first chapter was printed by World Books in the third volume of Childcraft in 1989.[10]

BBC Radio produced a radioplay version in 1996 narrated by Judi Dench.[11]

An original mini-series titled Legend of Earthsea was broadcast in 2005 on the Sci Fi Channel. It is based very loosely on A Wizard of Earthsea and The Tombs of Atuan. Le Guin has stated that she was not pleased with the result, which included "whitewashing Earthsea."[12]

Studio Ghibli released an adaptation of the series in 2006 titled Tales from Earthsea. The film very loosely combines elements of the first, third, and fourth books into a new story. Le Guin has commented with displeasure on the results.[13]
