Added DiffLines:

* Film/Matilda: Scores about a 3.5. Changing the setting to America leaves an impact on the film, but it's one of the more faithful adaptations of Dahl's works.

* The older and more established the original work is, and the more existing film adaptations that have been done with it, the less "need" new adaptations will feel to stick closely to the original, and the more likely chance that they will take their own approaches. This is especially true if the work is in the PublicDomain, and that's why works by people like WilliamShakespeare, JaneAusten and CharlesDickens get so many [[SettingUpdate Setting Updates]] and reinterpretations.

%% NOTE: Please sort new examples alphabetically



* ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix:'' The film adaptation is nearly identical except for Richard Henry Lee mounting a horse during his song and the removal of "Cool, Considerate Men" due to literal [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon Presidential]] levels of ExecutiveMeddling. Rises to Type 5 on the DVD release, which restores the cut number.

When creating a movie from a story already well-known in another medium, those making it are often faced with a crippling dilemma. How true can we stay to the source material without risking a failure at the box office? It can be a very hard call for a director. On the one hand, FanDumb will cry "DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER" should he change one iota of the source material, and he may find himself a victim of [[NeverLiveItDown the fandom's ire from then on]]. On the other hand, ''not'' changing a thing can result in either a very poorly-made movie or one that relies so heavily on the source material that people unfamiliar with the work will be completely lost.
