Emma – Cozy Classics vs. TV & Film

With the upcoming release of Cozy Classics: Emma in a few weeks, we thought we’d contrast and compare the characters in our version with three beloved TV and film versions of Emma (clockwise from our version): the 1996 big-screen movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow, the 1996 TV movie starring Kate Beckinsale, and the 2009 TV mini-series starring Romola Garai.

So which version of each character is your favourite? See any sources of inspiration for our versions?

01 - Cozy Classics - Emma

Clockwise from our version of Emma Woodhouse: Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Romola Garai.

02 - Cozy Classics - Mr. Knightley (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Mr. Knightley: Jeremy Northam, Mark Strong, and Jonny Lee Miller.

03 - Cozy Classics - Harriet Smith (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Harriet Smith: Toni Collette, Samantha Morton, and Louise Dylan.

We know Harriet is described as blonde in Austen’s novel, but we thought making our version brunette would help children distinguish Emma and Harriet!

04 - Cozy Classics - Frank Churchill (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Frank Churchill: Ewan McGregor, Raymond Coulthard, and Rupert Evans.

05 - Cozy Classics - Mr. Elton (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Mr. Elton: Alan Cumming, Dominic Rowan, and Blake Ritson.

06 - Cozy Classics - Robert Martin (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Robert Martin: Edward Woodall, Alistair Petrie, and Jefferson Hall.

07 - Cozy Classics - Miss Bates (Emma)

Clockwise from our version of Miss Bates: Sophie Thompson, Prunella Scales, and Tamsin Greig.
