Welcome to the Discworld


Welcome to the Discworld

"Welcome to the Discworld" is a short (8-minute) animated television adaptation of a fragment of the "Reaper Man" novel by Terry Pratchett, produced by Cosgrove Hall in 1996. It was the first film adaptation of a "Discworld" novel and was followed by the TV series "Soul Music" and "Wyrd Sisters". The rest of "Reaper Man" was not filmed.

The film featured Christopher Lee as the voice of Death, as did the following animated TV series and the 2008 "Terry Pratchett's The Colour of Magic" live-action TV miniseries.
