''Jane Eyre'' has ''numerous'' [[Film/JaneEyre film and TV adaptations]]. There was also a critically acclaimed musical adaptation in 2000 with songs by Paul Gordon. It even was the inspiration behind Daphne du Maurier's ''{{Rebecca}}'' and an [[ExternalRetcon external prequel]], ''Wide Sargasso Sea'', was written by Jean Rhys that focused on the [[StartOfDarkness primary "antagonist's" descent into madness]]. There is also an [[ExternalRetcon external sequel]], ''Jane Rochester'', by Kimberly A. Bennett. ''Rochester'', by J. L. Niemann, is erotica from Mr. Rochester's POV. ''Jane'', by April Lindner, sets the story in the modern day and asks: "What if Jane Eyre fell in love with a rock star?" ''Jenna Starborn'', by Sharon Shinn, is a science fiction retelling of the story which features "Jenna" (Jane) as a clone commissioned and then abandoned by Mrs. Reed. ''WebVideo/TheAutobiographyOfJaneEyre'' is a webseries [[SettingUpdate set in the modern day Canada]], inspired by ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries''. The classic 1943 horror film ''I Walked with a Zombie'' [[RecycledInSpace is a retelling of Jane Eyre set in the Caribbean and with zombies,]] almost 70 years before ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies'' debuted.

* Expy: The awful Mr. Brocklehurst was based on William Carus Wilson, a dour Calvinist-leaning clergyman whose Clergy Daughters' School Bronte attended in 1824/1825.[[note]] Bronte implies this quite clearly in a letter to her publisher.[[/note]]
