Shadow & Bone Netflix Highlights During Leigh Bardugo And Erin Morgenstern’s SDCC 2019 Panel

During the first day of San Diego Comic Con 2019 on Thursday, fantasy authors Leigh Bardugo and Erin Morgenstern took part in a “Spotlight” panel from noon to 1 pm!

Based on Tor’s write-up of the panel, it was revealed that Bardugo shared some info about the upcoming Netflix adaptation of her Grishaverse, Shadow And Bone!

Moderated by NPR’s Petra Mayer, they discussed ” world-building, writing tips, and the inspiration for their latest works…”

With many readers worried whether Shadow And Bone and Six Of Crows won’t get equal screen time, according to the write-up the show will be “a 50/50 split” stated by Bardugo.

It was also revealed that language director, David Peterson, who’s also worked on the languages for Game Of Thrones, will be working on the languages for Shadow And Bone.

The adaptation of Shadow And Bone is set to start filming in Budapest in “less than two months…” according to Bardugo (added July 19 via the SDCC panel now available on YouTube).

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold–a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.

Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite–and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.

As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation. 

Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.
