Alice-Miranda Television Movie is in production!

I know – I’ve been talking about this for AGES – ever since Alice-Miranda was first optioned by SLR Productions, 4 years ago. Then in 2016 they announced the project was in development (but that still doesn’t mean it will get made because you need the GREEN LIGHT.) Well, I am thrilled that we have the GREEN LIGHT and the official word is below the picture. I am so excited that Alice-Miranda and on her friends will be coming to a television screen near you. It’s not a series – but rather a movie and it will be animated – so a cartoon. I like that as it means we can use the images of Alice-Miranda and her friends that have become so much a part of who she is. I don’t have any more details at this stage but I will post things as news becomes available. In the meantime, just know that IT’S HAPPENING and I’m more than a little bit excited!!

SLR Productions is delighted to announce the production of an 80-minute animated drama comedy telemovie, Alice-Miranda Shines Bright with partners, Screen Australia, Nine Network and ZDF Enterprises.

The animated telemovie, targeted to the six to nine year old audience, will premiere locally on the Nine Network and will be distributed internationally by ZDF Enterprises.

SLR Productions has adapted Alice-Miranda from the award-winning series of books by bestselling Australian author Jacqueline Harvey, published by Penguin Random House Australia.

The 17 part book series (and counting) has been an extraordinary success with sales exceeding 850,000 copies in Australia and 1 million in key international territories such as UK, North America, Germany, Brazil, Hungary, Turkey and Indonesia.

Alice-Miranda Shines Bright is a story that contains a world of adventures including a treasure trove of mysteries to be solved; a series of impossible tests to be passed; secret midnight feasts to be had; pony rides through mysterious woodlands; a school play to open and, to top it off, a great big double wedding to pull off!

The telemovie begins when Alice-Miranda who is about to become the youngest girl to ever attend the Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy, a place where she will encounter not only friendship and fun, but also high drama, mystery and intrigue.  There’s teachers and students in urgent need of help; a girl determined to be Alice-Miranda and her friends’ arch enemy; Fayle School for Boys under threat; a frightening principal who hasn’t been seen for ten years and not to mention a scary witch in the woods.

Alice-Miranda is an extraordinary young girl determined to never give up, even when she’s faced with challenges that seem impossible to overcome, her bravery, kindness and positive nature sees her triumph against all odds.

“I am thrilled to bring this perpetually positive and beloved young heroine Alice-Miranda to the screen with esteemed partners, Screen Australia, Nine Network and ZDF Enterprises. It’s an honour to work with Jacqueline Harvey the author of this incredible publishing property and to know that Alice-Miranda’s loyal and dedicated audiences will soon be sharing in her awesome adventures on screen,” said SLR Productions’ CEO and Executive Producer, Suzanne Ryan.

“SLR Productions all-female creative team including CEO and Executive Producer Suzanne Ryan, Script Editor Melanie Alexander and Director Jo Boag have crafted a smart and inquisitive protagonist in Alice-Miranda that young girls can look up to,” said Sally Caplan, Head of Content at Screen Australia. “Based off the success of the bestselling books, we’re excited to see this Emmy Award winning team bring this fantastical and inclusive story to screen as an animated adaptation.”

“Alice-Miranda is a great role model for our audience and we are delighted to be working on this exceptional project with the team at SLR Productions. We know that Alice-Miranda has a great following with young readers and Jacqueline Harvey is one of Australia’s top female children’s authors.  We believe all the right ingredients are in place for this dynamic, quality Australian children’s drama to be a huge success on Nine,” said Nine Network Co-Head of Drama, Jo Rooney.

“We are thrilled to be working with our long-time partner, Suzanne Ryan and her team at SLR Productions on this animated adaptation of the Alice-Miranda book series by Jacqueline Harvey.  The books are loved by millions of young girls all over the world and we are sure they will enjoy the telemovie, Alice-Miranda Shines Bright just as much,” said Arne Lohmann, VP ZDFE.junior at ZDF Enterprises.

Alice-Miranda Shines Bright is a SLR production for Network Nine. Principal production funding from Screen Australia in association with Network Nine.

        I think it helps Mandy. You would need to be signed to a talent agency I think.

          Yes, I’m busy still writing my books – so there will definitely be more to come!

Hi Ms Harvey.

That’s great. Congratulations! 🙂

I am yet to read Kensy and Max 2 but it looks very enticing.

Also do you know when AM 18 comes out next year?

October 12, 2018 at 10:35 am

Chloe

 

OMG I’M SO EXCITED!!! Is there any chance that I could audition for a part??? I am a HUGE fan. Also I want to tell you about this teacher I have who is EXACTLY like Mr Lipp, his clothes are always extremely colourful and unfortunately for him his name is harry so it got nicknamed ‘Harry high pants’ and he always wears suspenders;)
Plz let me know if I can audition

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Chloe,

    I think the auditions are going to happen via a talent agency so you would already need to be signed as an actress or voice artist. I will make some more enquiries with the production company.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    November 18, 2018 at 2:59 pm

      when and where will the auditions be held, is there only one talent agency your using and how old do you have to be to audition for any of the roles.

        Hi Alice,

        I’m afraid that I have no idea and no control over the audition process. That’s up to the production company. I will try to find out a bit more.

        Best wishes,
        Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline,

Wow what an amazing achievement and opportunity for the Alice-Miranda franchise and community! I’m extremely proud that this series has reached a wide enough audience to have the chance to have a whole animated movie currently in production! I know that I’ll definitely be counting down the days till it finally airs on TV. I also especially enjoy the character sheet attached in this post, and although i’ve tried my hardest to identify all the characters, some I still remain unsure of. Are you able to let me and others known who all the depicted characters are above?

Thank you for creating such an inspiration series,
Emma

Nicole DM-C

 

Audition? If I can I will. Probably for Millie and Sloane since I think I know the lines already and love to read their parts aloud when I read the books.
This is so exciting! I have been waiting for ages for this. Finally we will get to see how our favourite characters look like as for a long time the only photos we got of them were the ones at the chapter beginnings, covers and that photo their pictures you shared in a previous post.
Sorry if I’m babbling… I’m just really excited!!!

I have a lot of questions!
ThankYou!

      I can’t believe that Alice-Miranda will be on television and if it is which Chanel will it be on or will it be on YouTube?

        Jacqueline Harvey

         

        Hi Gurmehar,

        I am so excited about that too but there might be some even more exciting news soon – can’t tell yet but watch this space – and make sure that you’re signed up to the newsletter so you find out all the news first!

This is wonderful News Indeed,I’m excited for this 80 Min TV Movie,although it’s a shame it won’t be a 26 episode tv series which I was hoping for this to be a full fledged Tv Series,but hey who knows,maybe if this Pilot TV movie does well,maybe it’ll eventually have a full tv series in the future,because these Books deserve more Animated Adaptions to be aired on american Television and around the world ^^

October 18, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi James, I’m hopeful that there will be more too. You never know. I think the cost of television production is just so high we were lucky to get this over the line. I hope everyone loves the tele movie and there is more too. Thanks for your kind words.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

I’m gonna guess it won’t be able to be shown in Australia☹️

October 18, 2018 at 7:41 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Kat,

    The movie is definitely being shown in Australia as it’s being made here and will first go to air on Channel 9.

    Hope you’ll enjoy watching it when it comes out.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Also how do aussies audition? Just curious

October 18, 2018 at 7:42 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    I think you need to be with a talent agency in order to be able to audition. I’m finding out some more about it at the moment.

    November 18, 2018 at 3:17 pm

Nicole DM-C

 

Now that I’m calm(took me 4 days)…
You must be so happy that the Alice-Miranda is finally coming to the tv. And if all these big, I think companies, like the federal goverment, channel nine and screen Australia, then this movie will be a really big deal! Which is great news!

And speaking of Alice-Miranda, when is the next book coming out? I just read that Kensy and Max 3 is going to come out and Clementine Rose as well. But I’m going to be patient because you are obviously working really hard and I have plenty more books to read and review.

Good Luck with whatever you have planned,
Nicole DM-C

Dear Mrs Harvey,

The Alice-Miranda telemovie sounds awesome! I can’t wait to watch it. Also, when will you announce the next AM book title? I’m itching to know what it’s about and I’m sure it’s great. Happy writing,

Kind Regards, Hannah C

    Hi Hannah,

    I’m not sure as I’m still thinking about the story. I’m working on Kensy and Max at the moment and we only just decided the title for that one yesterday!

    I’ll post about it when I’ve got more details myself :).

Hey Jacqueline Harvey!
That is Awesome that Alice-Miranda is getting a tv show! I can’t wait! I have read the series twice, I own them all, and I have most of them signed by yourself!
I was wondering when the winners for the Just Kidding writing comp this year were going to be announced? The website said the 26th October, but it has not shown up yet. Are they going to put it up on the website at all, or will we have to wait a little longer?
Thanks
Tes

October 28, 2018 at 7:07 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Tesla,

    I thought they would be up by now too. I’ve given everything to the magazine that they need so perhaps they’re waiting on something from another author? I imagine it will be really soon. There were over 1000 entries and they were awesome. So hard to choose a winner.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    PS Thank you for loving my books x

Wow!
Well done Jacqueline.
When is this being cast?

    I’m not sure Kaitlyn – I think it will be done via an agency.

    November 3, 2018 at 8:59 am

    Hi Kaitlyn,

    I’m not sure who the casting agent is or when the casting will begin, but I will share that information as soon as I find out.

How do you audition? I would love to audition for Millie or Alice-Miranda! Plus, I love acting and reading out the voices of the Alice Miranda books anyway! Where do you audition at?

November 1, 2018 at 6:57 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Shari,

    I’m not sure how that process works. I think perhaps the producer will go via a couple of talent agencies so you would need to be signed up to a speaking agent. But I will investigate further.

    Thanks – it’s very exciting!

Super Cool News! I just finished reading Kensy and Max Breaking News a few minutes ago. It had me on the edge of my seat for the entire read. I’m sure I will get to read Disappearing Act next week. This book was simply amazing and I cannot wait for Undercover.
I wish you best of luck with the new books and the TV series.

Thank you, Nicole

hi ms harvey,
i know this is a bit late but oh well!
This movie sounds amazing!!!!!! I cant wait to see it next year. I hope that there is some romance between Lucas and Jacinta because i just love them!!! When will the new book for AM be out? i am guessing some time in may or so next year. I hope it will be all about AM’s Norwegian twin, Britt. she was such a great character and Norway is my favorite country ever! I have already said this in a previous post, but i think it would be great if AM went to Norway and visited Oslo, The Lofoten Islands and other places like Tromso. She could even see the Northern lights! Norway is really one of the beauties of the world, isn’t it? The book could be called AM goes North, or something like that. Anyway you probably have already decided on the plot by now, and i’m sure it will be great whether it’s in Norway or not!
Sorry this was so long, i tend to ramble a bit!
Good luck with the movie
Sincerely, Madeleine

PS. Please include Lucinta romance!!!

Hi Jacqueline,
Guess what?? I am writing a book!!! I am aiming to have about 200-300 pages. How long are your chapters usually????
Also what is everything about AM having a Norwegian twin? I didn’t even know she had one!!!!!

    Hi I’m writing a story as well but… I’m stuck at what to write the next chapter about!

    Also I’m a big fan of you Ms Harvey. I’ve read all the Alice-Miranda books all the Clementine Rose And the Kensy and Max series

    November 15, 2018 at 5:58 pm

      Jacqueline Harvey

       

      Thanks Ruby – sometimes I find reading my story out loud and talking about it with someone can really help.

      Best wishes,
      Jacqueline

      November 18, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Ashlyn,

    Chapter lengths vary a lot depending on what’s happening. Usually anywhere between 6 and 9 pages I think in a Kensy and Max or Alice-Miranda book but sometimes they might only be a page or two if the action is fast and furious. Alice-Miranda’s Norweigan twin is a girl she met in Alice-Miranda in Scotland called Britt Fox – they’re not really twins but have lots of similarities and get on very well.

    Best wishes with your exams too.

    Will it have something to do with Neville as she is growing up???
    And when will the next Kensy and Max book be coming out? Will it have a link to Alice-Miranda in some way???

Did you draw all the drawings in Clementine Rose, Alice-Miranda and Kensy and Max??? Whoa, you are SUCH a good drawer. You’ll have to teach ME how to draw like you! I can’t wait for the Alice-Miranda!!!

Thanx, Tiffany xxx

Hi Jacquline,
I love the Alice Miranda series. Looking forward to the series already. Also can you come to Tasmania? There are so many girls in Hobart who would love to see you. And Tassie’s got some fantastic views.

P.S I’ve read all the Alice Miranda, Kensy and Max, And Clementine Rose books.

P.P.S will you do enrolments for 2019?

November 21, 2018 at 5:39 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Evelyn,

    I am hoping to come to Hobart again in the new year. I am so pleased that you’re enjoying all my books. I won’t be doing enrolments for 2019 at this stage as there are lots of other exciting things happening.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Dear Mrs Harvey,
How are you?
I just finished reading Alice-Miranda in Hollywood and love it! It was my friend who introduced me to Alice- Miranda. Thanks Eliza! I have a question about the series. How many Alice-Miranda books are you planning to write?
Kind regards, Freya

November 25, 2018 at 12:52 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Freya,

    I’m so pleased that you enjoyed AM in Hollywood. I am planning to write 20 Alice-Miranda books at this stage!

Dear Mrs Harvey,
I simply love to act and am also a big fan of Alice-Miranda. Do you think anyone can audition for the Alice-Miranda television show?
Many thanks, Freya

November 25, 2018 at 1:00 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Freya,

    I think the auditions were all conducted via talent agencies and they were for voice actors. It’s great that you love acting and perhaps you might get an agent at some stage.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline,
I’m looking forward to seeing you in Hobart. Also how many Alice Miranda books do you plan on making. When will the Alice Miranda 2018 diary be released? I’m planning on buying it for my sister at Xmas.

November 26, 2018 at 4:51 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Evelyn,

    I will be coming to Tasmania early next year – not sure of the dates but I can’t wait as I love it there. Unfortunately, there is no Alice-Miranda Diary for next year as my publishers decided to take a break from the diary a little while ago. There is a lovely journal that is still available. Hope you find something lovely for your sister.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Just wondering will Caprice be in the movie
Please reply

November 30, 2018 at 6:52 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    No Caprice isn’t in the movie as the script is based on Book 1 and Book 3 and Caprice hasn’t yet arrived at school. Alethea is there being horrible!

    Best wishes,

Dear Jaqueline

Do you know when the movie comes out?because I can’t wait!When I read the first Alice-Miranda book I LOVED IT almost immediatly.Your latest book (Kensy and Max:disappearing act)Was AWESOME!

From Anna

December 4, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Thanks Anna. The movie will be aired sometime later this year – possibly around October I think. Thanks for your kind words about Kensy and Max – I can’t wait for Kensy and Max: Undercover to be released in March. It’s loads of fun and I think even more exciting than the first two!

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Dear jaqueline

Just so you know you are my FAV author ever!I’ve read all of your books(execpt for a couple of clemantine rose books)and always wished there was some sort of TV thing and POOFit happened!(okay maybe that’s not the word for it)

Dear jaqueline

When will the next Alice-Miranda book come out?And do you know any other details?I am DYING for more,though I understand it takes a bit of a long time to write a book And I don’t mind if you don’t know the details. Oh do you know any details about Kensy and Max undercover? It’s fine if you don’t know anything about it as well.
From Anna

December 4, 2018 at 5:44 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Anna,

    K&M Undercover is loads of fun – super exciting right from the start and set in London and Sydney. The next Alice-Miranda will be out in June (as long as I get it finished in the next little while!). It’s set back at school and in the village (I thought she needed to be at school for a while) and there is lots of action and excitement.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline!

I have read all your books and am sooo excited for the movie to come out! I was just wondering if the 18th book is coming out? If so, can you give us any clues??! My favourite book so far is Alice-Miranda in China but they are all awesome!

December 5, 2018 at 5:02 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    I am busy writing AM 18 at the moment. There is lots of drama and excitement happening from the start and then some strange happenings. I can’t tell you everything because I still don’t know myself!

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    January 27, 2019 at 3:30 pm

Granola

 

Hi Jaqueline,
Wow! I’m so excited for this! I’m sure it’ll be really good! Also, when is Alice-Miranda 18 coming out? Me and my best friend Miso are HUGE fans of your work, so we can’t wait! I also enjoy writing, so do you have any tips for budding authors? Apart from Harry Potter (obviously), Alice-Miranda is my absolute favorite book series. My favorite character is Birdy, he’s so funny! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!
From Granola 🙂

December 5, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Granola,

    AM 18 will be out in June (as long as I finish it!). There are writing tips on my website under the Teachers section. I think being observant is super important and writing about something that you love – and creating characters you love.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    January 27, 2019 at 3:13 pm

Rosie

 

Dear Jacqueline,
I was just wondering why there is such an age difference between Alice-Miranda and her friends? For instance, Jacinta is about 13, and Alice-Miranda is only 9? I get that she is VERY advanced for her age, but is it normal for her to be friends with such significantly older kids? No hate, just asking.
Love, Rosie

December 5, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Rosie,

    Alice-Miranda started at the boarding school when she was only seven and a quarter and Millie was already 10. The older girls all accepted her pretty quickly and now I think they couldn’t imagine AM not being around. She’s very mature for her age but you’re right that it’s not entirely normal for younger children to be friends with kids who are that much older.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    December 10, 2018 at 11:41 am

dear jacqueline
i am sooooo excited about the telemovie as i have been reading alice miranda since it came out (and LOVE it) and have always wanted to see what the characters will look like in. i really want to audition but i don’t know how/when/where but if i do end up auditioning i would probably audition for Jacinta (because i love dance/gymnastics and i’m about her age) , caprice or Alice-Miranda (because my name is Alice and i am young for my year at school and she is one of my favourite characters)
i would really love to know how to try out
from Alice
p.s please reply to this and also my sister also loves your books

December 9, 2018 at 2:24 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Alice,

    The movie is an animation (so a cartoon). I am not sure how they are casting the voice actors but I think it’s going to be through an agency. I am very thrilled about it all. Thanks for your lovely words about the stories. How wonderful that you’re a lot like Jacinta :).

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

No Caprice isn’t in the movie as it’s based on the first and third book but Alethea is there in all her evil glory!

Best wishes,

December 10, 2018 at 11:44 am

Holly

 

Hi Jacqueline Harvey,
Will there be a movie in DVD or an airing on NZ channels so Kiwis could watch it (and international kids as well)?

December 11, 2018 at 2:29 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Holly,

    I’m sure there will be various formats for the telemovie so that it will air internationally. I will find out more as the process continues.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    December 31, 2018 at 1:33 pm

Leah

 

Hi Jacqueline Harvey,

I have been reading your books since year 5 in 2015 and have fell in love with them. I always went on your website to see what was happening. To then find I think last year or something that you were going to do a film of Alice-Miranda. I was always questioning on writing to you but was to scared so here it is now. I really want to audition for a part I have an agent and have been doing acting for 4 years at VYT. I recently did a short film and finished filming just yesterday actually. Even though I am 13 now when I was 11 I felt as if I was Alice Miranda. Your books are extrodainary and captivating too. I have to read the whole series again aswell. So if you need an actress let me know when the auditions will be or if they have already been done. I do have curly brown hair and big saucepan eyes like Alice so I feel as if I am her in some weird way. Talk soon.

Kind Regards,

Leah.

December 12, 2018 at 3:42 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Leah,

    Thanks for your message. That’s great you do lots of acting. The telemovie is going to be animated so they are looking for voice actors. I think the best thing would be to get your agent to get in touch with the production company, SLR Productions (in Sydney) and find out what the process is.

    Good luck!

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    December 31, 2018 at 1:33 pm

Q

 

I am so excited for the telemovie! My favourite character is definitely Jacinta. What is the new AM book going to be about?

December 14, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    I can’t wait for the movie either – it’s going to be loads of fun. The next AM book is set at school and there is something very dramatic that happens in the village and of course lots of mysteries too. I’m still working on it!

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    January 27, 2019 at 3:12 pm

Hi Jacqueline,
Just wondering what Alice-Miranda’s grandfather is called as he is never mentioned. Also what is your favourite Alice-Miranda book.

December 29, 2018 at 1:30 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Olivia,

    You’re right that Alice-Miranda’s mother’s father doesn’t get mentioned but I think I have perhaps once and I will have to go back through things and look up his name! Her father’s father is discussed in Alice-Miranda at Camp. He wasn’t the happiest of characters. I will look into things 🙂

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    January 27, 2019 at 3:11 pm

Olivia

 

Hi Jacqueline just wondering what your favourite Alice Miranda book is and is that the one that you chose to put on the tv. I am so excited.

December 30, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Olivia,

    I don’t have a favourite book in the series. There’s things I love about all of them. The television production company have written the script and I’ve consulted on the project. Basically they’ve used book 1 and book 3 and made the story come together. I think it’s really fun and they’ve done a great job. I hope readers will enjoy it too.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    December 31, 2018 at 1:26 pm

Eleanor

 

Hi Jacqueline Harvey,
I love love love your books and I’m so excited about the telemovie and I would like to know how to try out fora part I think I am most like Jacinta ( I do dance/ gymnastics) Millie and Alice-Miranda because I know a lot for my year level and I always try and find the good in people.
From Eleanor
P.S. when will your next book come out and please reply

December 31, 2018 at 7:15 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Eleanor,

    Alice-Miranda’s 18th adventure will be out in June – providing I get the draft completed by the end of January.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

    PS Kensy and Max: Undercover will be out 1 March.

    December 31, 2018 at 1:24 pm

Eleanor

 

Hi Jacqueline
Congrats on the telemovie progress I love your am books the are the best but what country does she live in and could you write a book about her in Australia because that would be awesome. Also when and where are auditions.

December 31, 2018 at 7:30 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Eleanor,

    I’ve never really said which country AM lives in as I wanted readers to make up their own minds. It could be the UK or somewhere like it. I also have quite a few readers thinking it could be Australia too. I worked in the Southern Highlands of NSW for a long time and it’s a lot like England. The telemovie is going to be animated so they are only using voice actors and I am unsure of the process for the auditions. I think you would need to have a speaking agent to be able to take part. I will do some more investigating.

    Thank you for your kind words about the books – I love writing them and have started AM 18.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Needmorelucinta

 

Hi ms Harvey
I’m a big fan of your books, even if I’m a bit to old for them. I can’t help it, they’re so entertaining. please more Lucinta moments as it seems like there is less and less in each book. And also it would be really cool if Alice Miranda went to New Zealand. Or Hawaii ( for a vacation?) . Or Israel! They are interesting ideas and I think they’d be really cool for a book.
Also when is the next Alice Miranda book coming out? And what is the Kensy and max series about.
P.s. It would be really really cool if you replied!

January 10, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    There is more Lucinta in the next book and Kensy and Max is a spy series – it’s lots of fun. They are twins and find out that their family is really not what it seems!

    January 27, 2019 at 3:05 pm

Brittfoxalltheway

 

hi!!
I’m like your BIGGEST fan. I have read all your am books. They’re so good! I can read 2 in a day. Pleeease make Alice Miranda go to New Zealand Cause I live there. And someone else wrote Israel and I went once for vacation and it was soo cool. They have amazing food! So it would be so cool if she could go there too!
Pleeeease reply. I would seriously mean soo much to me!!
P.s when is new am book coming out??

January 10, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Alice-Miranda’s 18th book will be out in June this year (as long as I finish writing it very soon!).

    Thanks for your kind words. I love New Zealand too and while I live full time in Australia, I am fortunate to spend quite a bit of time in NZ too.

Hi Jacqueline,

I absolutely love your Alice-Miranda books and have read them all at least twice. Thank you so much for writing them. I can’t wait for the next books to come out. My favourite character is Jacinta.

Hi Jacqueline

I absolutely love your Alice Miranda books so much I cannot stop reading them. I can’t wait for the next ones to come out but I’m dreading the day I finish reading the last book you write. Alice Miranda is my role model and Jacinta is my favourite character (and Lucus).thankyou so much for writing them and congrats on your telemovie. Sorry for droning on a bit I’m just really excited.

January 19, 2019 at 1:50 pm

Hi Jacqueline,
Do you know what company you need to be a part of if you want to try out for the telemovie.

P.S. how many other Alice-Miranda books do you think you’ll make

January 29, 2019 at 7:13 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Eleanor,

    I’m not sure what’s happening with the auditions but I suspect they may be in the process of casting it now – they were doing it through a number of different talent agencies across Australia.

    Best wishes,

Hi Jacqueline
I was wondering when is Alice Miranda’s birthday? I am obsessed with Alice Miranda I have all the books except one and I’m reading Alice Miranda in Japan.

January 31, 2019 at 7:59 am

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    I’ve never really said when her birthday is – just like I’ve never actually said where she lives (in terms of a country). I would be very happy if you shared your birthday with Alice-Miranda 🙂

    February 11, 2019 at 1:27 pm

When is Alice Miranda’s birthday

February 1, 2019 at 10:49 am

    Hi Eve,

    I’ve never actually given a birth date for Alice-Miranda. I’m happy for readers to decide that for themselves.

Jacqueline.
I started reading your books in 2016 when I was 9 and you visited my school.
I’m twelve now and I stopped reading soon after the Alice-Miranda finds the key. You are visiting my school in 7 or 14 days I think and I’m so excited that it is being made into a telamovie.
Lilly

February 14, 2019 at 4:40 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Hi Lilly,

    Which school do you go to? I am about to start touring but I don’t have my list of schools yet so I’m intrigued! I’m sorry that you’ve stopped reading Alice-Miranda but perhaps you might like Kensy and Max – who are a bit older and have all sorts of amazing spy adventures. I’m very excited about the telemovie too.

    See you soon,
    Jacqueline

Hi Mrs Harvey,
Congratulations, it must feel like your own daughter and some of her friends/ school mates going on TV. I am so excited. I started reading the Alice-Miranda series because I accidently put the boxed 1-6 books in my cart at Costco. And one of my friends gave me the boxed Clementine Rose books for my 8th birth-day. I never ever seem to grow out of your books

Thanks,
Clair 🙂

May 25, 2019 at 8:38 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey

     

    Thanks Clair – and yes you’re right – it does feel like my children coming to life! I love that you accidentally became a reader of the AM series – that’s fantastic. You are never too old for the stories you love 🙂

    June 14, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Hi Eleanor,

Hi Jacqueline,

Will the Alice-Miranda movie come out in 2019, October-September???
I just wanted to know because I was reading some things and I think I went over a movie. Will it also be about the first book or another one?

Thanks, Mia x

    Hi Isabelle,

    If you mean the movie then yes, Alice-Miranda Friends Forever is currently on at the movies but just for a few more days. I am going to be at the Pyjama Party at the Blacktown Drive in this Saturday night!

    Best wishes,

Hi Jacqueline!
I really hope to meet you at the movie! Anyways, in the comments, I saw a lot about Alice-Miranda having a ‘twin’. Does she actually have one, or is it just their personality is very similar?
Hope to see your reply soon!

    Hi Annabeth,

    I am doing my last movie event this Saturday night at the Blacktown Drive In.

    The references to Alice-Miranda’s twin are about a girl call Britt who is a lot like her but not actually her twin.

    Best wishes,

Hi, I was just wondering, for your next book in the Alice Miranda series, Alice Miranda in the outback, is there going to be more romance between Lucas and Jacinta?

Also, Why did the production company choose to skip the second book in the telemovie that got released, Alice Miranda: friends forever? the second book introduced Lucas, and is a major character, through the whole series, when I watched the film I was so confused because they skipped Alice Miranda on holiday.

Also, when is the next telemovie coming out, because I did research and it said that they were doing another telemovie soon.

Anyway, I am a very big fan of Alice-Miranda I have never seemed to grow out of them! Thank you for creating such a great book series.

Thanks, Anastasia

    Hi Anastasia,

    Hope you get to read AM in the Outback soon. Lucas and Jacinta are both in the book but I’m not going to give too much away.

    When you have your books turned into a movie the production company doesn’t necessarily stick to the way I would do things. It’s up to them to decide what to include and while it was disappointing that Book 2 wasn’t really addressed I think they did a good job of condensing the storylines. They are currently making another movie but the release has been delayed due to Covid. I have seen the first animatic (black and white section) and it’s super cute.

    I’m so pleased that you are enjoying the books.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Ms Harvey

I really enjoyed the movie.
It was so funny, but I can’t believe Alethea is so horrid.
I’d love to see what she gets up to next!

Sincerely,
Saanvi

    Thanks Saanvi. I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the movie. The second one is currently in production but the release is going to be delayed due to Covid 19. I think that’s pushed a lot of projects back.

    Alethea is ghastly in the first movie but she does improve and there are interesting times ahead for her in number 2.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline

Hi Jacqueline

I ❤️ the movie. Alice Miranda is such a bright little character. The play they put on was hilarious!
Also Miss Grimm is like one of those hot-cold teachers.

Sincerely,

Carmen
