I have high hopes for the movie. First of all, because this is something Orson Scott Card has been working on for literally decades – since the creation of Ender and his world back in 1977 as a short story. Card has turned down many, many offers for making the book into a movie – to maintain the feel of the story – and I have faith that he found the right telling for it.
Secondly – Harrison Ford. That is all I should have to say there. He basically sums up my interest in older men, period. <3
According to this, Ford is set to play Graff. <squee> The Ender’s Game picture confuses me, though, as I cannot recall Graff ever being in one of the student bunk rooms.
I agree the kids above look a little older than I would take for 8 years old… :/ That is my only reservation. But then, I look at some of the rest of the cast: Asa Butterfield (Ender), Abigail Breslin (Valentine), Jimmy “Jax” Pinchak (Peter), Hailee Steinfield (Petra), Aramis Knight (Bean) and I am set more at ease. So who the heck are the other kids in the pic? lol
I have faith in the author I have given so much of my personal reading time to over the past fifteen or so years.
March 15th cannot come quickly enough! :D
