    Lol, first time I saw Oprah I laughed despite myself. And also what was with the song choice? They could have done a song about time... Or like Child in Time. I dunno.
    • Brandon Cole
      Definitely needed a different song.
    Disney is in BEAST MODE right now.
  • Mark Sheridan
    Looks like every other kids fantasy from the last 20 years. Oprah looks ridiculous. Looks awful.
  • Brandon Cole
  • Light is lighter than darkness. It should be faster.
    • Bo
      Say what?....I obviously missed something because your philosophical or quantum physics statement breezed thru the top of my hair Explanation please...and are you correct? It seems so, but hey, I'm no rocket scientist...
      • ;D I was just playing with words to make fun of this statement.
        • Bo
 it. I re-read the paragraph/statement of 'darkness vs. light...saw how your mind works picking out that and, of course, how love oh boy, humans sure have to continue to fool themselves with these silly notions with poor Oprah leading the charge. Of course it's all bs, but don't tell them'll scare the dickens out of later gator.
  • Michael Wolff
    Another ruined version of the novel.
    • How can you say this? Have you seen the film? You're making a harsh judgment based off of a teaser trailer? At least wait to see the movie before you say they ruined anything...
  • Mark
    Count me interested. I had no idea this was being made, and I loved the book when I was about 30 years younger.
  • backwardsprogress
    Alright... gotta read the book and figure out what the hell is going on again. I just remember something about a character named IT... and the basketball bouncing in unison scene.
  • Moe
    Doesn't look terrible. I wiuld like to see more of Kaling and Peña...
  • shiboleth
    Looks like a standard mess of film production these days ...
  • evilED
    They lost me at Oprah. Ugh.
  • David Diaz
    I remember enjoying this book as a kid but I don't remember it at all. My son is reading the third book in the series now so I'll have to show this to him and ask him what he thinks.

    Am I the first to notice Oprah looks like Goku of Dragon Ball Z fame?
