OH MY GOD A LITTLE PRINCESS IS ON NETFLIX
HNNNNNNG TIME FOR A NOSTALGIA WATCH
I wanted to like “Princess Sara”, but it’s so mean and spiteful!
Like, I get the original book involves child servants, but good God! I wanted to freaking stab anyone who hurt Sara. And she’s just so passive! Like the director even said she’s too passive and considers Miss Minchin the heroine. Did he even read the book?!
I love Peter, the music, and even Sara (as passive as she is, she still doesn’t deserve any of this garbage)!
I dunno why, I just felt like ranting about that.
Sara Crewe (Anime) to Lavinia: Lavinia, I always wanted to be friends with you
Sara Crewe (Movie) to Lavinia: (Mackenzie Zales voice) Who the fuck are you?
Sara Crewe (Book) to Lavinia: I would like to slap you
“and i’m so sick of it!”
Sarah Crewe: all women are queens!
Miss. Minchin: if she breathes, she’s a

I started reading A Little Princess this week during lunch and MY PALS I love the Alfonso Cuarón movie (1995) but this book is SO good!!! My poor little Sara always making me cry, I wish I could get the rest of the day off to read the rest :C But it’s ok, I’ll keep on reading during lunch breaks.

Hi, Secret Garden anon!
I’m going to do a post about that very thing in the near future; it’s just going to take a while to put together because DETAILS!
The earliest version of the story was a short story called Sara Crewe, Or, What Happened at Miss Minchin’s (serialized 1887, published 1888). Then Burnett expanded it into a play called A Little Un-fairy Princess (later The Little Princess) in 1902, which was further expanded into the novel A Little Princess.
Stay tuned, and I will get back to you on this!
EDIT: There are also some minor textual variants in the serialized version of The Secret Garden (most notably Mary’s continuing to wear black after coming to Misselthwaite) that I’d like to talk about at some point.
Wow. I’m re-watching “A Little Princess” after so many years on Netflix right now. It’s giving me some serious young Courtney vibes!
