Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kasey Giard
The journey to take the popular young adult novel The Mortal Instruments to the big screen must, of course, begin with the author who penned the story. Cassandra Clare loved fantasy from childhood and chose New York as the setting of her story after having recently moved there. As director and producers came on board to make the movie, they were swept away by the brilliant story world and intensely varied characters created in the series. Bringing the characters to life can be challenging for a story already known and beloved by many, but filmmakers believe they have really nailed this one with the casting choices of The Mortal Instruments. But the developers did not stop there. Another challenge would be creating the props for the movie, everything from believable weapons and cards to the Mortal Cup. Though the story is set in New York, much of the filming takes place in Toronto, Canada. For this fantasy work, costumes include detailed tattoos as well as vampire teeth and claw-like fingernails. In the filming of the movie, director Harald Zwart felt it was important not to let the special effects overshadow the characters and emotions of the story. As series fans have watched the movie come together, they have reacted with a lot of eagerness and enthusiasm, which the author considers a true blessing. This movie companion is a great resource for fans of Cassandra Clare's popular series. Fans will find its pages loaded with color photographs of cast and crew members as well as sets and snapshots of each phase the making of the movie. Reviewer: Kasey Giard
