Did you know that some of our most known productions originated from books? In today's post

Uni-versal Extras are back with another film-filled blog post! Today we’re focusing on some of our favourite book to film adaptations. 

Over the years, the film and TV industry has been able to bring some of the world’s best loved books to life which, in turn, has helped to capture an entirely new audience. 

In our time, we’ve been lucky enough to see a fair few stories make the leap from page to screen, so we thought we’d take a look back at some of our most loved book to film adaptations that we’ve been honoured to work on! Without further adieu…
