Remember when there were reports that Disney had scrapped Fox’s planned adaptation of Mouse Guard, but there was still hope it could find a home somewhere else? Those hopes are now gone. But with the project’s death, we also have a chance to see what could’ve been.
Mouse Guard, written and illustrated by David Petersen, is the story of an order of mice sworn to protect a medieval realm from all enemies and threats. It’s wonderful, has won two Eisner Awards, and courtesy of Fox is getting a long-overdue film adaptation.
