Which King's Quest game...

From now on the Weekly Polls will be written by Tina Olah from KQIX's 2D Art department.  8)

Which KQ game would you most like to see as a movie, and which actors/actresses would you cast for it? :)

Tough question, really . . .
I think it's fair to say KQVI has the most movie-friendly plot/development, but that might also make it kind of boring as a film.  Most interesting would be the original, in some ways, because you really can't start anywhere else, but it would take a lot of work to make that into a film.

It would be really interesting to see III or IV fleshed out for film, though . . .

I mean that KQVI would be boring as a film not because it is boring (it's my favorite) but because it's almost a film now, and wouldn't be that different.

I went w/ KQ IV b/c I'm biased  ::)  but in good spirit, here's a sliver of who I would cast...

Evan Rachel Wood as Rosella

Sigourney Weaver as Lolotte
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000244/

Robbie Coltrane as "the Ogre"

I'll say KQVII because I'm biased too. KQVI was my first thought, but it reminds me too much of Aladdin. Though I guess it would be an interesting spin, I'd rather go with KQVII. I HAVE to get Rosella in it more than just a cameo appearence. :) This poll is odd because when I was little and played the games I really thought of them as movies. You just had to do stuff to make the "movie" progress.

I agree wholeheartedly, Rosella--they are movies (at least the later ones are).  I distinctly remember Robin Williams referring to them as "interactive movies" on some video way back when.

And VI does have similarities with Aladdin, I admit, (man, I loved that movie as a kid too), but I think it's got a lot more too it than that too  . . .

Found myself laughing though when you thought VI was more of a Disney movie than VII, though (but in a different way, I suppose!).

Y'know, in this age of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, you gotta admit that fleshed out, King's Quest III has the perfect framework for a film . . .

I picked 4, with 7 as the sequel. :P I want a girl hero!  ;D Sissy Alexander. Pah.

But I think all of them have great potential. ;)

And what's this all of a sudden having a NORMAL, ON-TOPIC poll?!?!  :o

Elaeron, I like your comments, you have good points. ;) KQ3 is a bit cliched in the orphan-finding-out-he's-comthing-more and then going on a quest angle (I ran out of my daily allowance of hyphens :P), but it's awfully popular at the moment...

While I'd say KQ6 was the best game in the series, plot-wise it wouldn't make a very exciting movie.

KQ5's my choice, and based on all the artwork I've seen from KQIX, I'd cast Harrison Ford as Graham. ;P

(Hmmm, and maybe David Hyde Pierce as Cedric! :P)

King's Quest V, it has the most diversity and the story-line would make it the easiest and best to film.
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

If I had to see one of the KQ game plots in a movie, I want the one most fitting for an action flick. None fits better than MoE. Action action action!

Also, which game would I prefer to be ruined by the theater? None fits better than MoE.  :P

You all make very good points.  I think that V would be a much better movie than VI. But really, you cannot have a IV or V without III, and I guess you cannot really have VI without V.

We need all the post-II ones! (Excepting MoE...)
