There sure are a LOT of Heidi movies.

Yeah but which ones fits the feel of Heidi I guess?

grow up with Shirley Temple's version as a kid, but I know that one is no were NEAR close to the novel.

Jennifer Edwards version? made for tv?

The 1968 version in America is know for ruining a football game, but I heard its faithful? (Way before my time)

They had a more "Updated" one in the 70's with Heidi living in modern times, but I am not going for that.


Disney did have there own version in the 90's.

I have the 2005 and 2015/17? versions on dvd, and found them both pretty good. But I favor the 2005 version over the 2017.

Just wondering with all these Heidi movies, which one would you think is more true to the novel?

Thumbs up

I was always a fan of Heidi vs. Anne of Green Gables. I was kind of shocked that Anne of Green Gables was powered by lightning while Heidi was afraid of it. That was never present in any other incarnation of Heidi. The ambiguity of the ending was pretty lame, too. The fact that they both fall off a cliff into the sea and Anne just wanders off while Heidi is nowhere to be seen. Felt kind of anti-climatic.

Otherwise, fun movie.

That version made quite a few changes to the source material. They made Fr?ulein Rottenmeier a kind and sympathetic character and a surrogate mother to Heidi. Every other version like the book depicts as a villain who is extremely cruel to Heidi. That version also has Clara start off as a spoiled and hateful girl. She also Heidi's cousin instead of a companion. The scene where Clara learns how to walk is also somewhat done differently.

There was a version on BBC in the 1970s that is extremely faithful to the book. A Japanese anime also stayed true to the source material and it was later dubbed into a movie titled The Story of Heidi. The 1993 Disney mini-series also didn't stray too far away from the book except for a few things.

Yes I was going to mention the BBC series as being very faithful iirc to the original book.
