Inspired a few [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie adaptations]], most notably one starring Creator/ShirleyTemple in 1939 (titled ''The Little Princess'') and one directed by Creator/AlfonsoCuaron in 1995. The latter cast Creator/LieselMatthews in the role. It has also had many stage adaptations as well as various television shows, including a critically acclaimed ''Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater'' ''Anime/PrincessSarah'' anime series in TheEighties and the more recent (and ''far'' more loosely-based) anime ''Anime/StrainStrategicArmoredInfantry'', which adds {{fanservice}} and [[LikeThatShowButWithMecha mecha]] along with giving the heroine an alternative [[ShellShockedVeteran reaction to trauma]]. [[RecycledInSpace In SPACE]]. See also the 2009 Japanese live-action drama ''Series/ShokojoSeira'', which move the action to Japan and age-up the characters. There's even a ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' adaptation (2012's ''The Penniless Princess''), and indie developer Creator/HanakoGames had released ALittleLilyPrincess, a Visual Novel adaptation in May 2016.
