My Visit to the Ender’s Game Movie Set

Did you know they eat alligator in Louisiana? 

My visit to the Ender’s Game movie set on Tuesday May 22 was a mind-blowing all-day experience. It was great meeting everyone on set and from the press- especially Kelly from Ender News, Crystal from EnderWiggin.Net, Erin from Ender’s Game Fansite, and Katie from J14 Magazine. I love you girls. A special shout out to the people on set who said that they read our articles everyday, hi and thank you!

I still can’t believe I was encouraged to see, touch and ask everything and anything. If I didn’t have my press badge I’d think it was a crazy dream. The missed work, delayed flights, sore feet, and jet lag was worth it. Sincerely, thank you everyone who made this set visit possible (especially Ryan)!

I have roughly 5 hours of audio and 50 pages of handwritten notes that need to be converted into something readable. When I finish and I’m allowed to tell my readers wonderful things I promise you guys the longest post ever. Until then I agree with Kelly; I already spent time in their time-out-room and I don’t want to go back (haha).

I will say this: In my personal opinion, nothing I learned from my visit to the Ender’s Game set is going to ruin this movie. Quit worrying about Gavin Hood (you guys should be cheering the fact that we have such an amazing director), or who was cast to play certain roles, or if this is going to be an accurate portrayal of the book. The Ender’s Game movie is going to be successful in the hearts of fans, and timeless.

My Visit to the Ender’s Game Movie Set — 5 Comments

  1. Loved talking to you guys!! Gotta figure out a way to have a viewing together!! Or at least text while we watch it.. Lol!! Glad you made it home safely. Thanks for all you guys do-as you can see it means the world to everyone on the set. -A

  2. From a fan that first read the
    book in ’84; yes it’s a timeless and epic read which is all the more reason why
    it should be as accurate of a portrayal as possible. The reason why you
    received so many questions about whether or not it’ll finally be filmed this
    time is because of many many reasons, mostly revolving around the technology and
    graphical capacity of the age (as I’m very sure your aware).

    Critical aspects of the movie can
    not be overlooked such, especially the age of the characters. In the end your
    right for the most part and we should be elated that the movie has finally come to fruitarian
    but please don’t delude yourself and others in thinking fans will accept the release
    with open hands if more than just a few “details” are overlooked.

    With that, I’m very much looking
    forward to finally seeing toons of children “flying”, the awkward hallways of Command School and the simulator
    in action!!
