I’m not going to lie even at 28 I still enjoy a good young adult novel series now and then. I even enjoy it when my favorite such books are turned into movies and let’s face it this is a formula that works because it targets growing movie fans looking for something to relate to. However, believe it or not these franchises fail more than they offer good returns. For every “Harry Potter” franchise there is an “Eragon”. For every “Maze Runner” there is a “Golden Compass”. Whether it’s due to an overuse of creative license or just simply poor filmmaking many young adult franchises fall long before they have the chance to reach their conclusion. With a new hopeful franchise launching this weekend in “The Darkest Minds” I decided to put together my own version of an overdone list many others before me have covered and explore those young adult franchises that tried and failed. These are my picks for the Top 10 Failed Film Franchises Based on YA Novels.
