    Now, would movie tie-ins be like the author based it on the movie or the first draft when the script was first made before many rewrites came into play? I am just wondering if that's the case. While a book made by a fame author that has their work made into a movie would be more like adaptation, correct? I am just curious to know the difference between these two...just wondering.
