The Color of Magic

Show Summary

The Colour of Magic is a two-part comedic fantasy made-for-TV film directed by Vadim Jean based on Terry Pratchett's two Discworld novels, The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic, that centers on expelled wizard Rincewind (David Jason), who despite knowing one of the eight most powerful spells in the powerful spell book, Octavo, in Discworld, can't learn basic magic. Apparently, all the other spells are too afraid to stay in his mind. Since he's lost all hopes at learning anything else, Rincewind takes on a job as a local guide to Discworld's first ever tourist, Twoflower (Sean Astin), who just so happens to be an insurance salesman. As the two seemingly move from one near-death disaster after another, barely surviving because the spell stops him from actually dying, the power-mad wizard Ymper Trymon (Tim Curry) has been murdering all of the Unseen University's staff in a bid to control all the spells in Octavo. Unfortunately for him, all of the spells have to be said aloud and Octavo, one of the only ones in the know on one of the spells, is annoyingly jaunting about with Twoflower in tow. The real question is: what happens once the spells are said aloud? Is it doom and destruction for Discworld?moreless
