‘Save Anne with an E’ fan film: Why the fandom keeps fighting, pt. 1
The fans of Anne with an E who are fighting for the show’s renewal are nothing if not passionate. We asked fans to share their love for the show so that we could create a fandom film to share far and wide. The results have been amazing.
Fans are surely begging for more Anne content, and gosh, y’all came out in force.
But wait, there’s more!
Anne with an E fans have shown up in a big way. In fact, fans have been so ready to share their love for Anne Shirley and the community of Prince Edward Island that this is just the first of our fan films! Film Daily wants to make sure every message of love for the show is heard, so we will release a new fan film every week until we run out of submissions.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves

And if you don’t know about Anne yet, here’s a quick beginners guide
We aren’t alone in our devastation at the end of Anne with an E. The series, inspired by the classic novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, brings a modern depth to the character of Anne, played brilliantly by Amybeth McNulty.
The story explores with aplomb some of the realities of Anne’s background as a 13-year-old who has endured an abusive childhood in orphanages and the homes of strangers. While the original novel glosses over some of the darker events of Anne’s past, they’re seamlessly incorporated into her character in Anne with an E.
Quite simply: if you haven’t watched Anne with an E yet, start now! Make sure you watch pt. 2 here.
