Yes. Eragon is the first of a four-novel series written by Christopher Paolini. The other novels in the series are Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance.
In a land ruled by an evil tyrant, Galbatorix (John Malkovich), a young farm boy named Eragon (Ed Speleers) goes hunting in a dark forest and finds an egg that hatches a dragon, who tells Eragon that he is the key to Galbatorix's downfall.
Most likely not. Fans of the novel series were very displeased at how the movie removed certain characters and plot lines which were considered key to the novels' success.
