I was just thinking the other day and I realized one of the reasons I know New Adult spec fics could be successful is because New Adult spec films are. But Traci, you may say, there is no New Adult film genre. Well, technically you are right, but many fantasy and sci-fi movies follow the basic principle of New Adult: someone going off into the world alone for the first time and discovering themselves. So, I'm going to give a list of my top five favorite New Adult films.
What is Star Wars but a story about a boy leaving home for the first time to find himself and learn about his past?
This is a pretty new movie, but already in one of my top movies. A young woman finds out she is the reincarnation of a space princess and finds love.
The Princess and the Frog
Tiana was already working hard in life, but turning into a frog gave her the freedom to learn more about herself and reaffirm what she wants out of life. Getting a cute prince as a husband was just the cherry on top.
Lord of the Rings
Frodo leaves home (see that reoccurring theme?) and bands with his friends, new and old, on an adventure and a learning more about himself.
Every superhero movie
I swear every superhero movie is about somebody discovering something about themselves and working hard to reconcile their new knowledge with what they knew before. Every new adult goes through this process, so basically new adults are all superheros!
