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.
