Learn more about the upcoming Ranger's Apprentice movie and see what fans have to say about it

Earlier this month, it was announced that the Ranger’s Apprentice books will finally be made into a film adaptation.

Since the book series began in 2004, fans have been eagerly awaiting the chance to watch the story unfold on the big screen.

While there aren’t many details about the adaptation yet, Screen Rant reports that the upcoming film will be based on the series’ first two novels, The Ruins of Gorlan and The Burning Bridge.

Although we don’t yet know answers to some of the burning questions surrounding the movie (Who will play Will? Where will it be filmed?) What we DO know is that fans simply cannot wait.

When the news was shared on the Ranger’s Apprentice Facebook page, over 350 fans commented, sharing their excitement and offering up their own casting suggestions for Will, Alyss, Halt and more.
