Netflix are the ones who've taken on the challenge of turning Lemony Snicket's thirteen books into a TV adaptation, after a err… slightly less-than-successful movie version, which fans have never quite forgiven Hollywood for.

But this time the official casting (after the unofficial trailer) looks pretty spot on, with this cutie called Malina Weissman taking on the role of Violet Baudelaire, the eldest of the three siblings.

Klaus, the Baudelaire brother, will be played by Louis Hynes, who basically looks EXACTLY how we imagined him when reading the books.

Neil Patrick Harris will be taking on the formidable role of Count Olaf, and while it might seem like another comedy choice after Jim Carrey in the film, he was actually pretty terrifying and creepy in Gone Girl.

And Lemony Snicket himself is to be played by Patrick Warburton, although we're guessing you won't actually see too much of his face, and there'll probably just be a lot of mysterious shadows instead.

Oh PLEASE let this be good and not just another series of unfortunate adaptations.

Excited to see what Netflix come up with for the new A Series of Unfortunate Events adaptation? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
