Foundation- How to adapt a classic into a masterpiece

Foundation- How to adapt a classic into a masterpiece

Foundation by Isaac Asimov is a classic science fiction book about Psychohistory, a theoretical science that is able to build a predictive model for life in the galaxy which forecasts the fall and rise of empires and the threats that will threaten to send humanity back into a dark age where most knowledge and progress will be lost. The book is dense and philosophical and lacks the visual and character dynamics that are needed to make a movie or a television series.

So, Apple TV+ made it into a series for their streaming series staring Lou Llobell as Gaal Dornick, Jared Harris as Hari Seldon, Lee Pace as Brother Day, Leah Harvey as Salvor Hardin, Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk, and Cassian Bilton as Brother Dawn. How were they able to translate the book into a wonderful series. They understood the narrative and translated it into the new medium with eye-catching visuals and personalizing the stories to powerful character arcs.
