([[DevelopmentHell There still haven't been any big-screen films yet]], just [[MadeForTVMovie TV movies]].)

* The UrExample comes from Tellarium Games in [[TheEighties the early 1980s]]. They adapted several books into games with varying degrees of success from InNameOnly (''Swiss Family Robinson'') to canonical sequels to the author's original work. The most famous of these was their {{Canon}} sequel to the ''GreenSkyTrilogy'', which got the greenlight from Zilpha Keatley Snyder provided they use the game to [[AuthorsSavingThrow reverse a decision she regretted making in the final book]]. She actually drew the map of the tree city Orbora for the game, and her music-professor husband Larry wrote the music.
