Anne (2017 CBC) starring Amybeth McNulty

I really enjoy the new Anne (2017 CBC) (Facebook) (based on the 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery) starring Amybeth McNulty (Twitter) in the role of Anne. You can watch the full episodes online at CBC.

I really like this official Facebook page video “Meet the cast and crew who have brought this new take on a beloved classic to life.” where the show creators talk about from episode 2 onward there are more creative story telling with sprinkles of the classic moments added to the inspired story.

Bonus: Quoting John Doyle G&M, “And it is somewhat startling to find the Tragically Hip’s Ahead by a Century used over the opening credits. It’s a song with profound resonance for so many Canadians. And the line “Illusions of some day casting a golden light” amply works its magical power here.

I was told a Japanese animated Anne series was made and I found most of its 50 episodes (with English subtitles) on YouTube where you can watch via this YouTube Playlist. Here is episode #1.
