Official Manga Graphix Press ReleaseEdit
/24-7PressRelease.com/ - March 1, 2005 - After over 6 months of rumor and speculation Manga Graphix officially announces that pre-production of Witch Girls Tales has begun. Witch Girls Tales, based on the award winning comic book popular among "tween" and teenage girls in over a dozen countries will be produced in Texas. The casting process is still ongoing, with several big name stars showing interest in the production.
Witch Girls made its appearance in 2003 as a comic book by independent publisher Manga Graphix. Since the first issue of the comic, the Witch Girls fan base has grown, with sales almost doubling every issue. Based on an unpublished novel of the same name the Witch Girls comic tells the story of two teenage cousins, Janette and Annabelle, who are gifted with magic, like a small percentage of the girls in their world. A witty, dark comedy, Witch Girls is compared to the stories of Roald Dahl, Edward Gory and Charles Addams by Emmy award winning writer and producer Paul Dini in his introduction of the first issue.
Many websites and organizations aimed at young women have praised Witch Girls for promoting "individuality, and self-confidence" among young women. The Friends of Lulu Society, dedicated to increase female readership of comics, voted Witch Girls to its recommended reader list.
The screenplay for Witch Girls was written by noted African American comic book writer and game designer Malcolm Harris. Mr. Harris started his career as the writer of the comic book Justice Watch and entered the gaming world with the table top role-playing game "Nemesis: a Perfect World". Along with Mr. Harris, writer Emily Foster and composer Allen Burrnett add their skills to the production.
Mr. Harris says "This production is going to take a lot of work but I think we are up to the task of bringing these beloved characters to life." When asked what actors he sees portraying the characters Mr. Harris added "I just want actors who can devote themselves to the project. But if any big name actors are interested out there please contact us (laughter)."
The pre-production field crew, led by Jorge Aguero, has not only started to scout locations in the beautiful state of Texas but have also laid the groundwork for summer filming.
