I don't know if I'd be excited about a Rhiannon movie, series, play or anything. The song was even not inspired on the actual welsh legend. She just found the name, beautiful, after reading a novel, not the legend (though the characters are the same, or so I read), and she wrote the song.

Anyway, what story would be that in the movie or series?? I guess it would be another try like taking to Broadway Queen's or Rod Stewart's songs. Though I admit I've not seen those, I believe the only truly success of that idea was Mamma Mia, and shouldn't have been copied.

I'll be really surprised if this amounts to anything more than a single song for a soundtrack or something, or one new track to add to yet another compilation/retrospective. I think if she were working on an album or a film or something we would have more news than this.

Dave Stewart was all about sharing updates from 24 Karat recording but Kurstin may be a top secret guy.
I still think album. The handful of shows she's doing this year fits very well with the happenings of 2010... she did like 8 shows while recording IYD.

And I doubt soundtrack. She hates giving songs to movies

but this wouldn't be just any movie, it would be her movie... well, likely they'd built it out of Evangeline Walton's story which Stevie bought the rights to.

in may 2020 she was saying:

Stevie Nicks is hard at work amid the current coronavirus pandemic, working on both a book and a movie inspired by Fleetwood Mac's 1975 hit, "Rhiannon."

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Nicks, 71, revealed that working on the book and movie had already been her priority after Fleetwood Mac finished touring as part of their An Evening with Fleetwood Mac trek in late 2019.

"Last year, I made a pitch to everybody that when this Fleetwood Mac tour is over, Iím taking next year off because I want to work on my Rhiannon book/movie," she shared.

"And I want to maybe work with some different producers Ö I donít know what I want to do! I just know that I donít want a tour," she added.

Inspired by the book Triad by Mary Bartlet Leader about a woman named Branwen who is possessed by another woman named Rhiannon, the song was written by Nicks and originally recorded by Fleetwood Mac on their eponymous album in 1975.

While speaking with the publication, Nicks also noted that she has "Rhiannon"-related poetry that she has been working on for decades that she hopes to record while in lockdown.


"I have some Rhiannon poetry that I have written over the last 30 years that Iíve kept very quiet," she shared.

"Iím thinking, 'Well here I have all this time and I have a recording setup.í And Iím thinking Iím going to start doing some recording. Iím going to start putting some of these really beautiful poems to music, and I have the ability to record them. So thatís on my to-do list."

She added, "What all we have right now, if youíre home in quarantine, is time, unless youíre taking care of kids. So, really, you could do anything you wanted that youíve been wanting to do your whole life. So thatís how Iím trying to look at it." (https://people.com/music/stevie-nick...d-coronavirus/ )

And just 8 months ago she was talking about making it a tv series instead and picking who'd she want to cast:
LA TIMES Oct 1, 2020 "The moonlight confessions of Stevie Nicks"

When she wrote the song "Rhiannon" in 1973, she had little knowledge of the folklore behind the name. But five years later, a fan sent her four paperback novels in a Manila envelope ó author Evangeline Walton's adaptation of the ancient British Mabinogion. Nicks was so transfixed by the literature that she eventually bought the rights to Walton's work in the hopes of bringing the epic to the big screen.

Because of the scope of the story, it was later decided that the movie should be a television miniseries, and earlier this year Nicks says she finally signed a deal with a studio to make it. She has 10 songs that she's never released, still on cassette tapes in a suitcase, set aside specifically for the project.

Despite her 2014 turn on "American Horror Story," Nicks has no plans to play a major role in the miniseries, though she's not opposed to the idea of "riding by on a white horse or something." She won't dish on her dream cast but says that Harry Styles "is definitely in the running."

Who's holding their breath?

And for 45 years I've said there's never going to be a Rhiannon movie. And for all this talk about Stevie working on a new project with a new producer, none of it means anything to me so far. She has worked with other producers and ended up disliking their outcomes. So whatever this is, I'll believe it when I see it and hope to God I'll enjoy what I'm hearing. I'd still love to hear all the songs she recorded with Dallas Austin all those years ago.

Well, $he's full of sh*t, and full of herself.

$he should be embarrassed, but $he even lacks the capacity for that, these days.

I agree with VivFox- release the Dallas Austin Tapes! As with most of the music Stevie has scrapped over the years, it's probably really good!

You're right. Think of "Call on me for Magic." That song is a masterpiece we never would have known about had not one of our Ledgies been checking out that producers web page. And while we're on the subject of producers, Stevie once hired Glyn Johns to produce Street Angel for her. She ended up disliking everything he produced for her and I gotta tell you, I have heard those tracks and they are all fantastic. She trashed all of them and redid the record and was never satisfied with its outcome. You know how you guys love to repeat Stevie's, "Well you wouldn't say that to Bob Dylan" line? Well Ann Wilson has the same story to tell about Glyn Johns as well. She says, " he called Nancy a 'Hippie'." Some people can be overly sensitive.

Well spank my ass and call me Rhonda....I never knew there was an Andy Johns. I knew there was a Glyn Johns, who worked with Led Zeppelin(and the Eagles first two albums).

Turns out they're brothers!

Wikipedia claims:

Modern Records also released a special long-form interview video on the making-of the album entitled, "Reflections from the Other Side of the Mirror", which contained newly filmed material shot by Herbert Worthington III.[2] However, it was limited to a worldwide release of 10,000 albums and only 500 VHS releases.


I can't recall ever having seen this video.... did anybody else see it??

She try to scrap the Glyn Johns sessions too and she said in an interview that he was rude to her during production and used very coarse language toward her. I'd love to know exactly what he said .
