Looks like every other kids fantasy from the last 20 years. Oprah looks ridiculous. Looks awful.

Light is lighter than darkness. It should be faster.

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...

Count me interested. I had no idea this was being made, and I loved the book when I was about 30 years younger.

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.

They lost me at Oprah. Ugh.

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?
