One reason Terry allowed Sam Raimi to do this project is that Sam is a great fan of Terry and his work. Just as Sam brought out the depth and true character of Peter Parker in Spiderman, so too will he bring out the true philosophy and depth of Richard Rahl and the Sword of Truth Series.
As Technical consultant for the project, I can assure you that no changes to the story will be made. Other than eliminating Scarlet, an unnecessary part to the plot or the story line.
Having the books come out as a mini series, allows not only MORE of the story, but the full and complete story that we all want to see. Having mini series like this will allow for a greater depth of understanding the core values and moral of the story.

what you said about a mini-series being more intricate than a movie is true and exactly my point. i fear that if they made a mini-series they would change the characters too much by adding a bunch of new stuff that i may or may not like. for example, they might add new scenes or script that i didn't like or didn't feel matched the book.

I agree with most of you, the idea of a film cutting most of the story would be horrendous. The mini-series idea is better, but they usually have such awful actors in them. I think a full blown series would be better. I have just watched the Da Vinci Code, and they have taken most of the things, that make sense of everything else, out of it.

I don't think tha I agree with everyone that is saying that the SoT series should be put into a movie. The story is so intricate that if they wanted to do movies they would have to cut out so much of the story. A lot of small characters that we have come to love (ie possibly Rachel) would be cut out of the story because they are not central characters (and who knows what that would do to the last film as the final book hasn't been released yet.) The TV mini series is going to allow them (hopefully) to put in more characters that they wouldn't have been able to in a movie because of the time restraints. But that is just my opinion. But I do agree with the person that said that they need to get the right actors for the parts and I think that that is going to be a difficult task regardless of whether or not it is a movie or a mini series...

At first i hated reading books of any kind, but i got so bored one day that i picked up Terry Goodkind's first book and started reading. I got hooked in the first couple pages and couldnt stop reading.
I use the wizard's rules in just about everything i do. It has shown me more wisdom and helped me to think more clearly, and of course i tell everyone to read his series.
After reading Blood of the Fold, i started working on my own fantasy novel. So i guess you can say that Terry Goodkind was my....motivation to begin on my own work. Although i dont think that my novel and/or novel's will be as good as his.
And as for the Tv miniseries subject, I agree with you guys/girls, it really should be turned into a movie rather than a miniseries. Just as long as they pick a good actor. lol I thought of that for so long and i have no idea who would play good for Richard. Anyways i'll leave this to end here now. lol Byes!

i agree with nixon that a Sword of Truth movie or series of movies would be better than a mini-series on television. making 1 great movie leaves more of a "grand tale" to the whole thing rather than making it some huge intricate mini-series on tv.

i personally think they need to come out with a seris of movieon his books. it would be better than the eragon movie (these are great books) when is the concluding boo coming out?

yes you are right the book of counted shadows has nothing to do with being a war wizard...if people would read the whole series instead of cutting in throught middle then they would know that, the problem i find flustering is that now that richard has the book he cant read it because of the loss of his powers, thats got to be a terrible emptyness for him.
