We are so touched by the love that Anne with an E fans have for their show, we can’t help but get all tingly as we pour through the passionate responses fans have had to our call out for the Save Anne with an E short film.
As we mentioned in part one of the fan films, the response has been overwhelming. Not only did the Anne with an E fandom come out in droves, but they came out ready to shout their love from the rooftops.
Check out our newest outpouring of love for Anne with an E. No one here is done demanding more seasons of our favorite redhead.
The Anne with an E fandom makes us emotional
Your devotion to Anne with an E gives all of us at Film Daily major feels. Moira Walley-Beckett’s updated version of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables has created an impactful update of the beloved story of Anne Shirley. Providing new insight to Anne’s past and tackling timeless issues in a modern way, Anne with an E has resonated with its YA audience.
Fans of the show can’t help but fight for its continuation. Anne with an E’s cancellation was most likely a result of the termination of the agreement between Netflix and Canada’s CBC. In response, fans are lobbying for any platform to pick up the show, appealing to Disney+, Amazon Prime, and Hulu as well as Netflix and CBC.
More than a period drama
Anne with an E is a coming-of-age story that takes place in the late 19th century and follows the life of teenager Anne Shirley (beautifully portrayed by Amybeth McNulty). When aging siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert (R.H. Thompson and Geraldine James), decide to take on an orphan boy to help out around their ancestral farm of Green Gables, they are mistakenly sent Anne.
The teenager manages to charm the siblings into giving her a try, much as she’s charmed the audience in fighting for her story. As Anne forms a new life in Prince Edward Island, everyone who is lucky enough to cross her path leaves their meeting better than they were before.
