Amazon Prime are adapting Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s beautifully wacky novel, ‘Good Omens’ with a lot of care.
Everything we’ve seen about Amazon’s ‘Good Omens’ adaptation so far has been pretty much perfect. From the casting of David Tennant and Michael Sheen as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale, respectively, to the overall aesthetic.
The impression is that a great deal of care is being taken to ensure that the genius of the source material is conveyed correctly.
The novel, first published in 1990, was a collaboration between the late, great Terry Pratchett and the equally great Neil Gaiman. ‘Good Omens’ is a genuinely funny tale that spans all of time with a perfect blend of dark undertones and moments of levity.
Central to the story are best friends, the angel, Aziraphale, and the demon, Crowley. The latter made famous for a certain significant moment in history involving the creation of mankind and an apple.
With the end of days in sight the pair must form an unusual alliance to save a world they’ve both become rather too fond of.
Our latest glimpse of the series is the opening title sequence in which Crowley and Aziraphale both star.
‘Good Omens’ is due to debut on Amazon Prime on May 31st this year.
