    I'm not so sure. This was my fave book as a kid and I fear the movie will ruin my memories of it. Perhaps I'll just not watch it. But it does look very well made.

    I am really looking forward to seeing this. I think it will be just as fun for adults as it would for kids.

    Spike Jonze is directing this... and he has done a couple of really good movies like Being John Malkovich and Adaptation.

    Then this might make you happy:

    The Henson Company and Jim's son decided to take his notes on a sequel and go along with it. Brian Henson is also making a new Fraggle Rock movie :)

    They are still in preproduction, but it would be nice to see both movies.

    omg i loved that book wen i was little, and i cant wait to see the movie. I saw an interview with the director and the author, and the author said that he was rlly glad that the director kept the "heart" of the book alive, and added on to it.
