Netflix has chosen a title for the Anne of Green Gables adaptation, coming to the streaming giant on May 12, and it’s not just Anne, it’s Anne With An ‘E,’ which, we’ll admit, just puts a smile on our faces. It’s, after all, exactly what Anne would want.
The revelation comes with the official release of the Main Title, which you can see below:
The show is based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved book series, originally published in 1908, which has been an inspiration for countless of young men and women around the world.
Montgomery wrote not one, but eight books featuring her famous heroine, and if the show is as successful as we all hope it is, maybe we can get to see her grow up and live.

Anne With An ‘E’ will be available to stream on Netflix on May 12th, 2017.
