Trivia

In 2010, it was announced that Walt Disney Pictures retained the film rights to readapt the novel, following the television film version aired in 2003. Following the success of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (2010), Disney announced hiring Jeff Stockwell to write the screenplay for Cary Granat and his new Bedrock Studios. Cary Granat had previously worked with Disney on The Chronicles of Narnia movies and Bridge to Terabithia (2007). The project's budget was thirty-five million dollars, which the company compares to District 9 (2009) and Bridge to Terabithia (2007), both of which had less than thirty million dollars. For reasons unknown, the project was put in development Hell. It wouldn't be until four years later, on August 5, 2014, that Disney announced that Jennifer Lee would be the screenwriter for the film, who had a new take on the book and would not be working from Stockwell's draft.

Boring, too slow
15 March 2018 | by docjac-85676See all my reviews

I was excited to watch this movie. High expectations based on all the marketing given to it. It ended up being extremely boring, too slow. No action or great parts at all. The story starts and develops so slow and with nothing exciting to tell. There were moments (if not the entire movie) in which all the magic could be seen as fake and special effect only. The acting for the main character is bad. Very bad. I could tell it was too acted. Really, sad too see such a beautiful story brought too life to become so boring and say nothing at the end of it all.
