GWW sat down with the cast and crew of the Netflix’s upcoming series Shadow and Bone during a roundtable interview session to discuss the high fantasy adaptation coming to the streaming service.
Shadow and Bone is an epic escapist fantasy, but feels really grounded and fresh. Think of it as the chosen one element of The Hunger Games meets the fantastical lore of Harry Potter with an Ocean’s 11-like high stakes heist. It’s based on the stories and characters of Leigh Bardugo’s NYT bestselling Grishaverse novels, which have been translated and sold in over 38 languages around the world.
