Okay but even then, those are movies. Cloverfield is a movie, and there are sequels.

Fantastic Beasts is a spin off from the Harry Potter movies, which are adaptions of the Harry Potter book franchise.

The game and tv show exist in two different mediums.

The EU of Star Wars, is an adaption of the films to a book.

My point is that Arcane is an original story. It’s not an adaptation because it’s not based on an existing story.

It takes place in an existing world but that’s just the setting. The story is what matters.

And thanks for bringing up the Star Wars EU. That’s a perfect example of what I’m talking about.They ARE NOT an adaptation of Star Wars. They are stories that take place in the Star Wars universe.

What is an adaptation of Star Wars? The novelization of the movie Star Wars.

Rings of Power isn’t an adaptation of The Lord of the Rings. That would be the movie trilogy The Lord of the Rings.

Okay I think I’m starting to see what you’re talking about, but in my mind I would still say it’s an adaption of league on the whole. Thanks for the discussion!
