Firstly, Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians! And here's a spelling bee word: sesquicentennial.
Second, today was the premiere of the last of the L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables films.
So, here's the review!
SPOILERS LEFT-RIGHT-CENTRE AND LEFT AGAIN BELOW
Fire and Dew is set maybe about a year after The Good Stars and the story of Anne's transition out of childhood. Interestingly, the film begins with Matthew taking a nice long walk, but he's not as physically active as before and needs a cane. Anne is now fourteen years old and the obvious sign of this is a wardrobe change. No more one-piece pinafore dresses - she has to wear a blouse and long skirt (and probably a corset). And she's heading to school for the first time after s…Read more >
And we have reached the season finale of Anne!
Yes, the cinematography was splendid and the acting was top notch and the writing was excellent. And yes, you will want so very badly for another season.
The CBC link is HERE.
SPOILERS DOWN YONDER.
Like, huge ones. I recommend watching the episode instead of reading this post first, because whoa, if I was not stunned by everything that happened.
As Wherever You Are Is My Home starts, it's almost Christmas and all the children are preparing for recitals and the like at school. Anne's cutting up snowflakes when Josie tells the other girls some rather disturbing news: the Cuthberts are poor and Anne might be sent back? Anne is so unsettled that she can't possible wait until after school and rushe…Read more >
It's the penultimate episode of season 1 of Anne this week.
And it feels like a doozy, because a lot of things are happening.
The CBC episode link is HERE.
And SPOILERS BELOW.
I think that Remorse Is the Poison of Life is an episode that focuses on grief and regret. More often than not, these emotions are things that people reflect upon in hindsight. It's not something you look ahead and then plan on how you will respond. It's not something that has a specific shape or symptoms. You can't expect everyone to cry or become visible angry or that it'll last a specific amount of time.
The episode starts with Diana rushing desperately to Green Gables in the winter at night to get help. Almost everyone is at Charlottetown to see the premier (of the…Read more >
It was Sunday yesterday (and a long weekend for me), which means a great time for another episode of Anne!
Here's the CBC link.
SPOILERS HENCE FORTH
(With 'thees' and 'thous', oh, and I'm not holding any punches whatsoever on menstruation. If that makes you squeamish, better quit reading now. Not kidding.)
One of the things that made me strangely excited about Tightly Knotted to a Similar String was that was directed by Patricia Rozema. Her latest film released was Into the Forest (based on the novel by Jean Hegland), which featured Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood in the lead roles of two sisters who find themselves relying on each other as they navigate a world with none of the contemporary comforts and the forest around them as their best …Read more >
I just love this series. Tonight - episode four!
And here's the CBC link for the episode here.
SPOILERS BELOW =D
So, as we recall last episode, Anne has resolutely decided never to go back to school. An Inward Treasure Born shows that it's... not exactly going too well.
Marilla, Matthew, and Jerry seem to be indulging in Anne's listless behavior - she's not paying attention to her chores and she spends all her time making up fantasies in her head. Marilla goes to Rachel for advice, mostly because she's almost at her wits' end. Rachel tells her to be patient and to let Anne make up her own mind to go back to school - Rachel's confident that Anne will go back, since she's a smart girl. Except Marilla loses her patience when she finds that Ann…Read more >
Onward to episode 3! As expected, it covers Anne's first (and second) days at school, which includes one of my very favourite incidents in the book. (And maybe a bit concerning, because it involves a form of physical violence. Oops.)
My thoughts are on the fuzzy side, because I caught the flu and haven't been feeling so well. =(
EXPECT SPOILERS BELOW
But What Is So Headstrong as Youth? focuses on Anne's first and second days at school. Anne is anxious at meeting new friends, making a positive impression, and just thrilled at the idea of being in class and learning. While Matthew and Jerry focus on working on the farm, Marilla gets an invitation to join the Progressive Mothers' Sewing Circle.
If you've ever heard the expression "the nai…Read more >
Since the opportunity presented itself, a review of episode 2 of Anne!
Clearly CBC is very Ontario-centric, because they advertised the Canada: The Story of Us series as starting at 8:00PM (it started at 9:00PM, but maybe that's because I live in British Columbia) and Anne was at 8:00PM. Also, I'm wondering if they realized that Anne did so well that they readjusted their schedule. It's a gem of a series.
(FYI - I'm not sure I can keep up the pace of the reviews; going to try, though.
And I'll try to post the CBC link when it comes up, it'll probably be on the website by tomorrow.UPDATE: As seen below in the comments, the link is now up on CBC HERE.)
Also, it looks like it's going to be a 3 hour encore next week, so probably episodes 1 and 2, follow…Read more >
Something nice about living in Canada - I watched the first episode of Anne (2017 TV series) last night on CBC. So here's a quick review!
(There are probably spoilers here, for everyone who wants to wait for it on Netflix. And my fellow Canadians who didn't watch it last night - it's available online on CBC HERE.)
Now, if I'm not mistaken, Anne is going to cover Anne's first year in school.
Here come the SPOILERS (I think)
Without going into too much detail, Your Will Shall Decide Your Destiny covers Anne's arrival at Green Gables (I find it hilarious that every adaptation I've seen so far finds it important that Anne talks about her wonky bag), the failed attempt to return her to orphanage, meeting Diana Barry, and the amethyst brooch incident. …Read more >
So, exciting news - I managed to watch L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables: The Good Stars yesterday!
Review below and be forewarned - there's spoilers (I don't know what counts for spoilers, so consider this my warning).
The Good Stars picks up after the events of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables (no exact timeframe). Anne is twelve-going-on-thirteen and settled in at Green Gables. Now that she has a form of stability in where she's living and a family in Marilla and Matthew, she's starting to experience growing up.
This takes the form of what Marilla will repeat throughout the film as "being sensible." Anne and her friends are still very much children - Anne complains about geometry being the worst, she's still impulsive, and she's g…

Friday was my lucky day. By accident I found the 2016 film online - brilliant quality and with Czech dubbing (Czech is one of the languages I understand and even speak) that was made for the Czech broadcast on HBO. Even though I wanted to order the DVD and watch the movie with the original sound, I couldn't resist and had to see it as soon as I could. I still want to order the DVD to hear the original voices, but the dubbing was (surprisingly) not that bad.
When it comes to the movie... almost everything I want to say, is already covered in Eikakou and Susannah's reviews and I feel pretty much the same about it. I particularly liked Botsford's Marilla - I'm not saying she was the perfect Marilla, but I liked the way she portrayed the charac…Read more >
Who was a fan of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables? Well, some good news - Corus Entertainment has announced the production of two more films, with Ella Ballentine, Sara Botsford, and Martin Sheen returning as Anne, Marilla, and Matthew respectively.
The two films are currently going to be Good Stars (to air next year) and Fire & Dew (expected to air in 2018). Both films are going to be based on the first book, with Good Stars following Anne from the age of 13 and how her relationships with Diana and Gilbert begin to shift, and Fire & Dew covering her time at Charlottetown studying to be a teacher.
Looks like we'll be seeing a lot of Anne in 2017!

You may know that I am the Ebenezer Scrooge kind of person - I think twice before buying things, especially when it comes to DVDs. But yet I decided to order Anne: Journey to Green Gables from the German Amazon. The price was really good, even though the shipping was almost more expensive than the DVD itself. My order arrived only yesterday, but I couldn't wait, I had to watch the film immediately. So... here are my thoughts.
- Technical stuff
It is a classic one-disc DVD, with only one language option (English) and apparently without subtitles - at least I couldn't find them anywhere. It is a Region 1 DVD, which means it should only work in the US or Canada (I live in Region 2), but I found out on the Internet that those DVDs can be played on y…Read more >
(Psst: This is kind of a LONG review! Maybe go get something to eat or drink while you read.)
Yesterday, I went to the cinema with my mum and sister and watched L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables, starring Ella Ballentine as Anne. Today, I'm sitting down with a mug of tea and attempting to write a coherent review of the movie. Here goes.
Fun fact: we wanted to go to an earlier (cheaper) session, but it was all booked out, so we had to go to the afternoon session instead. The cinema was nearly full, and consisted of a good range of ages (it was a public holiday), from older couples to parents with children and teenagers (mostly girls). The audience was very responsive and laughed at all the funny parts in the movie. It was lovely vibe, and …

Hello Anne fans!
It's probably too late, but for any Canadians out there, L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables re-aired on YTV today (May 29, 2016) as part of its Sunday movie lineup. It happens to be on as I'm writing this, but I won't be able to watch the whole thing again, too busy. =(
Better news for any American fans out there - Ella Ballentine has confirmed on her twitter feed that L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables will be airing in the United States; details still pending.

It's been a few months since it aired on YTV, but I'm wondering if anyone has seen L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables and would like to discuss it? I did see it and wanted to share some thoughts (and I'll hope you'll forgive me if my memory is off - this was way back in February). Please be warned - there's probably spoilers (I don't know what counts for spoilers, so consider this my warning).
While I'm going to admit I was probably (at least subconsciously) comparing it to the 1985 miniseries, I was watching the movie to see it on its own merits and how it would compare to the events in the book. I'm also going to say that I haven't read Before Green Gables, but I didn't feel like there were many parts in the film that needed the audie…

Ok, I have recieved TBAQ and have read up to the end of the fourth short story so far. I love Anne's poems—and I have read "a bit" ahead—"The Aftermath" and following dialogue by Jem and Anne. It's way thicker than I excpected—nearly one-and-a-half inches long (3 and a half centimeters)!! (Now I want the Rilla of Ingleside edited by Benjamin Lefebvre.)
The first "entry" in the book is Walter's "Piper" then the longest story, "Some Fools and a Saint." It's rather freaky. Along the way, there are several "Evening Vignettes" discussing Anne's old poems. The climax for me came when, at the end of the fourth story "The Twins Pretend," Anne and Gilbert eavesdrop on a conversation between two reunited lovers and then think, respectively,
"Isn't that …Read more >

As the title says, YAY!!! I went down to Maryland last weekend to NorthBay Adventure Camp and it was awesome! But that is not the point... the point is that I went down with money and my mom told me if I could save enough for The Blythes Are Quoted, I could have it!!! And I did it!!!
Also, I was just waching short clips from the Continuing Story of Anne of Green Gables, and I am not impressed. Why did Kevin Sullivan all of a sudden decide to bring WWI into ANNE OF GREEN GABLES??? The movie is NOT true to the book like the others--WWI was in Rilla of Ingleside, nearly 20 years later! The others were much better!
(PS please forgive me. I LOVE exclamation marks!)Read more >
Hello world! My name is Christine--CHRISTINE--and my age is above ten and under twenty. You can call me Christie or Chrissy. My favorite book is LMM's Rilla of Ingleside. I've read

And, of course, I'm determined to read The Blythes are Quoted, Anne of Windy Poplars, and the Pat and Jane tales.
My next favorite authors are CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Louisa May Alcott, Lucy Fitch Perkins............Read more >
Well, we finally have a new year! I wish you all only the best and may all your dreams come true! Many people make new year's resolutions on this day and I realised that today is a wonderful opportunity to write down my plans for this year.
- I intend to watch and add the remaining 24 episodes of Kon'nichiwa Anne: Before Green Gables (most likely after the finale of Green Gables Fables).
- Watch Episodes 3-6 of Anne of Avonlea.
- Find the remaining cast lists of Anne of Green Gables – The Musical and Anne & Gilbert.
- Update the book appearances.
- Finish my research on the Australian radio dramas (didn't have time for that in 2015).
- Add many new pages.
It's always better to plan less things, I guess. You never know what may show up. I really hope I'll manage …Read more >
All right, who knows what's going on at this wiki right now? *raises hand, looks around anxiously* In case you somehow didn't get the memo once you arrived, we're currently ten days into our month-long 100 Years of Anne of the Island project! As it is Day #10, I've taken the liberty of bringing you ten interesting facts about Anne of the Island that you may or may not know (depending on how well you've perused this wiki).
(Disclaimer: These facts aren't mindblowing or shocking, and some are nearly common knowledge, but I still feel confident in putting 'interesting' in the title. This is an Anne website, after all.)
#1: It is L. M. Montgomery's seventh book.
Preceded by Anne of Green Gables (1908), Anne of Avonlea (1909), Kilmeny of the Orchard (1910), …Read more >
Anne of the Island is the third book in the Anne of Green Gables series, first published in July 1915. It covers four years of Anne's life -- the four years she spends studying at Redmond College, in fact -- and it celebrates its centenary in July! How awesome is that?
So, to celebrate, we at the wiki have decided to hold a celebration, called 100 Years of Anne of the Island. Here's the deal: You edit any article relating to Anne of the Island during the month of July (denoted by this template at the top), and you can earn a fun set of badges and make your way up the user leaderboard! It's going to be lots of fun, but we need your help to make this work.

As you might have noticed, I created pages for several Anne of Green Gables radio dramas a few days ago. I found them only by accident - I was looking for info about Phyllis Shumway and I managed to find the BBC TV/Radio archive with all the adaptations they've made. I decided to continue with this project and add the other radio dramas based on AoGG.
I knew that Toby Tarnow, who played Anne in the 1956 film, had portrayed Anne in a radio drama on CBC Radio. That's all I knew. And that's all Google knew. I figured out that the adaptation must have been made after 1950 (when apparently Toby started her career) and before March 1956 (when the film was broadcast). I tried everything I could and somehow I found this article from Ottaw…Read more >

For those who do not know (seriously, where have you been?), Green Gables Fables is a YouTube web series based on Anne of Green Gables and starring Mandy Harmon as Anne. Now, since it was only the second web series I'd ever watched (the first was Job Hunters), and adaptations of Anne tend to vary wildly in terms of quality, originality and appeal, I wasn't sure what to make of it at first. Interestingly, its three creators – Alicia Whitson, head writer; Marie Trotter, producer and transmedia boss; and Mandy Harmon, director and actress – are three young women who have never met in person.
I started watching Green Gables Fables when there were only ten episodes posted, thanks to LilyLacreag, but I didn't think they were anything spectacular, though I…

I was doing a web search for information on the 1956 and 1958 productions and noticed that Don Harron, the director passed away on Jan 17th 2015.

So... I finished watching Akage no An yesterday and my work is almost done. After two months of watching, writing down the notes, uploading info and editing, it's finally the time to sum up and sort out my thoughts.
Akage no An is without any doubts a perfect adaptation of Anne of Green Gables. It covers EVERY single moment mentioned in the book - the only thing that wasn't included is Anne's walk through the Haunted Forest. I totally fell in love with that story once again.
The series has enchanting music and flawless drawings. When I started to watch it, I was a little bit afraid as I usually watch films and TV series in my language or in English. But after several episodes I got used to Japanese language and even learnt s…Read more >
So, I've recently discovered the Myers-Briggs personality test. I was a bit sceptical at first (can we really fit people into only sixteen different types?). However, it is pretty interesting. (You can read about it and take the test here, if you've never heard about it. I'm an INTP, by the way.)
I saw that some people on the internet had already categorised characters from things like Harry Potter and Death Note, so I thought I'd try a hand at it myself, only with characters from the Anne of Green Gables books. Here's what I ended up with:
- ISTJ – The Examiner (Marilla Cuthbert)
- ISFJ – The Defender (Stella Maynard)
- INFJ – The Counsellor (Jane Andrews)
- INTJ – The Strategist (Katherine Brooke, Nan Blythe)

We always knew Nan and Di, Anne and Gilbert's twin daughters, are different. But how different? And in which ways are they still similar? In this article, I take a closer look at the Ingleside twins, the third named set of twins (and the first ones of the same gender) to be introduced in the Anne of Green Gables series. Nan is often described as being like her mother, while Di is her father's favourite. But is this true of the way they are characterised?
Each twin has several stories in Anne of Ingleside devoted to her. Nan's (Chapters 25-26, Chapters 30-31 and Chapters 35-36) are tales of making bargains with God, being fooled into thinking she was swapped at birth and her fairytale idea of the GLOOMY HOUSE. Di's (Chapters 28-29 and Chapters …Read more >
I met Anne via Anne of Green Gables. That was around 5 years ago. Then she had become a good friend of mine with series of Anne. Now she is like my best friend !
I could improve the ability of imagination due to Anne. I have produced my own film with whole story and it is always show in my mind. I have a wonderful image in my mind about Avonlea. Eventhough still I'm not a teen anymore, still I like to read Anne at least once a month even I'm busy alot with my Job. That is how I attached with her.
I have a big dream to visit Avonlea to make feel Anne to bottom of my heart. I'm counting fingers for that and do my best to fulfill that dream.

One of the many ways you can help out on this wiki is to add more information about editions of books about and related to Anne. This includes uploading book covers (make sure to get the best quality possible and that we don't have it already), info about the various editions – this includes date, country and language of publication, publisher, ISBN, etc. The pages this sort of information is documented on are (but not limited to):

- Gallery:Anne of the Island
- Gallery:Anne of Windy Poplars

Just to let you know I've started a wiki about the Emily trilogy (Emily of New Moon, Emily Climbs and Emily's Quest) by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It's over at Emily of New Moon Wiki if you want to check it out. A notice though: it is VERY new and currently has barely any content. I have started basing it around this wiki (e.g. the way the main page looks), but of course we can change that if it doesn't suit it. I thought if anybody here has read and/or liked the Emily books in addition to the Anne of Green Gables series, they might like to help out on the wiki. You don't have to if you don't want to, of course, but in case anybody does, the link's up there as well as in the 'Affiliates' section on the main page of this wiki (under 'Links').

Since a couple of people are posting their stories of how Anne has inpacted their lives, I thought I'd do the same ...
I first read Anne of Green Gables (the original edition) when I was around eight or nine or so. I was always a bookworm, but I was at a bit of a loss at what to read at that point. We were at the local library and my mum found two books for me to read: Anne of Green Gables and What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge (that one's still one of my favourites). Since I live in Australia, the edition I borrowed from the library was this one (see picture):
I didn't just read Anne of Green Gables: I devoured it. And when I was ten I was so infatuated with the series that I bought the first seven books for my birthday (unfortunately the shop did…

So, as some of you might know, my username is *Ginny*, and I am the less active (heh) of the two admins on this wiki (the other is LilyLacreag). I generally work on areas such as categories, templates, the online books and images.
Images are a very important part of this wiki, and in order to access them properly it would help if categories were added to them. Such as:
For an image of a book cover:
- Example: Category:Images of Anne of Green Gables
For an image of a film poster/DVD cover, etc.:

For an image of a person/people:
- Example: Category:Images of Anne Shirley
Add more categories for multiple people, as many as necessary:

I've known Anne over 15 years now. I started reading these books at my teens. Books were my mothers old, there is my mother marks and writings in everywhere ("I love Christer!!! 1.9.1967"). I remember how I felt reading Anne of Green Gables first time. It was Christmas and I sat alone at my room listening NKOTB or something as bad.... I fell in love at first sight.
Now I've read these books about 20-30 times, in finnish and english, I've listened them and I have different editions, old and new. My biggest treasures are first finnish editions from 1920's.
In this blog I'm going to tell about finnish translations (why it's Anna, not Anne!) and my own thoughts of these wonderful books. I'm also interested nature and culture, there's so much sim…Read more >
So as promised in my previous post, I am starting a five-part series on the main characters living in Avonlea (in my opinion) – Anne Shirley, Marilla Cuthbert, Matthew Cuthbert, Diana Barry, and Gilbert Blythe.
I find it only appropriate to start this series off with the most obvious lead character, Anne Shirley. The novel is named “Anne of Green Gables”, after all!
So,Anne Shirley, who is she you might ask?That question isn’t asked very often where I live - in Canada. She’s practically the mascot of Prince Edward Island, if not the country. She’s the stereotypical, red-haired (with a temper to match) and freckled little girl, who wasn’t the boy Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert sent for. But there really is much, MUCH more to her than that!
Let’s…Read more >
It seems as if almost all of my life, I have had a passion for one particular series: Anne of Green Gables. It's funny, because it's not the type of thing a 17 year old girl would typically be interested in, in this day and age. My grandmother got me interested when I was young, and ever since I have been captivated by it. I started out watching the movies at her house from as early as I can remember. Every time I went to visit her, that was what we would watch!
Just recently though, I grew an even bigger interest in this delightful series. Just over a year ago, I found a very old copy of the novel, "Anne of Green Gables" in my basement. It was during the summer time, and I had nothing better to do. I had never actually read the novels, so …Read more >
This is a rough guide to how character articles should be named, if more than one option is possible.
- The name of the article should be the name the character is
best known by. This means you can use nicknames, as long as they
are more well known than the original names.
- Examples: Use Carl Meredith instead of Thomas Carlyle Meredith and Rilla Blythe instead of Bertha Marilla Blythe. Also use Nan Blythe instead of Anne Blythe, as Nan is hardly ever referred to as Anne.
- Exceptions: Do not use the name the character is best
known by if that name includes a title (such as Miss, Mr, Dr, Mrs,
- Example: Use Muriel Stacy instead of Miss Stacy and Teddy Phillips instead of Mr. Phillips.
- Avoid using titles in article names, unless there is no other
- Example: The…
- The name of the article should be the name the character is best known by. This means you can use nicknames, as long as they are more well known than the original names.
