As reported earlier, Emma Watson was featured in Wonderland Magazine, as well as a guest editor. She interviewed J.K. Rowling and was interviewed herself. According to the New York Post, Ms. Watson told Wonderland Magazine of her involvement in the production of a new book-to-screen franchise: The Queen of the Tearling, part one of a trilogy by Erika Johansen. Emma Watson is the first actress considered for the role of the protagonist, as well as producing it along side David Heyman. Watson told Wonderland:

“I had kind of said I would never do a franchise again, so I was desperate to hate it’ Watson said in an interview with Wonderland magazine this month. “Unfortunately, I didn’t sleep for about a week because I couldn’t put the bloody thing down. It would be fair to say I became obsessed with the role and the book. Now I am executive-producing it.”
