JK Rowling’s children’s book THE CHRISTMAS PIG is getting a film adaptation

JK Rowling’s best-selling children’s book The Christmas Pig is getting a film adaptation. The project is in early development at Rowling’s production company, Bronteand.

The Christmas Pig was first published in 2021 with illustrations by Jim Field. The book tells the story of a boy named Jack, who loses his childhood toy Dur Pig – nicknamed DP – on Christmas Eve after his stepsister throws him out of the family car.

“Although Jack is offered a substitute called Christmas Pig as consolation, he misses his faithful old friend and puts Christmas Pig (abbreviated to CP) aside.

“To cheer Jack up, CP comes up with a plan to save his best toy. The two are shrunk and sent to the Land of the Lost where they embark on a perilous journey to reconnect with DP.

“Along the way they meet a cast of extraordinary characters, including Santa Claus. Jack eventually comes to terms with losing him and returns home to his bed with Christmas Pig.

Rowling was inspired to write the book by her son’s twin pigs. When the book was initially published, Swift Films made a series of promotional videos for the project.

The author is best known for writing the Harry Potter novels, and last year it was announced that Warner Bros. was developing a new adaptation of the series based on the original books.
