There are a lot of people who’ve read the young adult sci-fi novel Ender’s Game that are naturally pumped up for the upcoming movie. Then there are those who happen to be fans of the book and are going to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Those fans are in luck since they’ll be spoiled not only by the cool panel in Hall H but the intriguing fan experience that’ll be happening inside the convention center walls.
What’s absolutely amazing about the Hall H panel for Ender’s Game isn’t the fact that they’ll be showing off new clips, but just the people that will be coming in to talk about the picture. Scheduled to appear is director Gavin Hood, producer Roberto Orci and cast Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford. That’s right, Harrison Ford will be showing up to Comic-Con. Let the flurry of Star Wars: Episode VII questions begin for the veteran actor. Personally I hope that they prohibit fans from asking any questions about the upcoming Star Wars movie, since it could possibly eat up all the Q&A time the audience of Hall H can have with the cast and crew of Ender’s Game. If the Star Wars fans want to be nice, they should limit how many questions they have about the upcoming movie and put some thought into them.
Now onto the fan experience portion of Comic-Con that people will be able to experience for themselves. Here’s some information on what fans will be able to see below:
Exclusive Fan Experience – Attendees will be able to visit an elaborate, specially constructed ENDER’S GAME exhibit outside of the Hilton Gaslamp, featuring 8 unique rooms representing the most iconic environments of Ender’s world, complete with original film props and set pieces used in the movie. Throughout the experience, attendees will be able to see exclusive film footage on LED screens, interact with new digital content, integrate photos of themselves into the highly anticipated Battle Room, and register to win a home make over.
Now those of you who are interested can also get your hands on some fast passes if you check out the Summit Entertainment booth. You know the one. It’s normally located near the SyFy and BBC America booth. This appears to be a far suitable YA novel turned movie to bring to the convention center, well that is compared to Twilight.
Are you excited to see the Ender’s Game movie?
