Harriet the Blogger

Harriet will be updated in many ways for today’s youth, particularly portraying her character as “blogger” and establishing a high school age setting rather than the 11-year old in Fitzhugh’s book.

That’s from this article about a new Harriet the Spy movie in the works.  Now I have to say I wasn’t wild about the last film version, well-intentioned though it was.  And I sort of like the idea of a blogging Harriet, but setting it in a high school has me fearing a Disneyized-Gossip Girl wannabee.  Hope I’m wrong.

(Thanks to Kidsmomo for the heads-up. )

    I. Don’t. Think. So.

    Is Disney also doing the new Beezus and Ramona movie? That would explain why Selena Gomez was cast as Beezus. (She seems too old for the part.)

  2. I read this and was sad. Maybe I am too nostalgic, but Harriet is sure to be all glammed up. sigh.
