Fans have been worried about whether or not The Giver would stay faithful to the book and include black and white footage, but that is no longer a question.
When the The Giver trailer was released, fans were very upset that it was completely in color.
“Can someone explain to me why this isn’t in black and white?” one of our commenters (Ms_Woozah) asked. “I honestly don’t get it.”
As fans of Lois Lowry’s classic novel The Giver know, if the film adaptation were to be solely in color, that wouldn’t make a lot of sense. In the novel, people in the future cannot see color along with feeling almost any kind of emotion.
Luckily, we now know that the film will not follow the trailer in being completely in color. Yahoo now has confirmation through a featurette that The Giver will be partially in black and white, partially in color.
