Does anyone know if there are actually going to be sequels, or a movie? This could be added to the bottom of the page. Thank you for your contributions.--Geracudd 21:47, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

possible merge[edit]

An article Larklight trilogy has been started, with sections for each of the books. What are the intentions, to merge? That might not be a bad idea DGG (talk) 22:27, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Actually I don't think the intentions are to merge. Instead they probably just want to have a page on the trilogy in general. I think that merging the pages would be a bad idea. Just keep them as they are as their are a lot of writing on each of them. It's best not to merge. 119.12.76.150 (talk) 09:21, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Movie addaption[edit]

Is there any more infomation on the Larklight movie? When I searched the web all I could find was stuff like "There will be a Larklight movie to be realeased in 2010 with a budget of $200 million. Has it begun production yet?

(edit) IMDB says it's due to be released in 2013 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Perudafourie (talkcontribs) 11:58, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Improving this article[edit]

I have started to improve this article. I think the infobox and header are OK now. I've tried to make the 3 books consistent. Note that there is also the Larklight trilogy]article to consider later. It may be possible to merge the 3 book articles into that one, but I'm not sure at this point. If we can try to improve each book article, we could consider that at the end. I would suggest that the trilogy could contain a bit more generic info about the whole series, along with a summary of each book and a 'See main article' for each of the 3. But the main problem is the huge bulk of text in 'plot summary'. I suggest this is split up as per WP:BOOK guidelines, as per the following template section. Any work towards this goal would be great. I'm going to paste the relevant part of the template below - we need to fill in the gaps.

Also, does this series not count as steampunk? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Perudafourie (talkcontribs) 12:01, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Plot Summary Too Long[edit]

The Plot Summary is way too long. Someone might want to read this and give it a rewrite. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_write_a_plot_summary Tlqk56 (talk) 02:21, 19 April 2012 (UTC)
