An assistant to one of the produces (twitter handle @ManSafGo) tweeted two hours ago:

"Fighting boys!!! #EndersGaming"

Before that:

"Morning lecture with NASA astronaut #awesome #EndersGaming"


Let your thoughts run wild. :D

Well, I can't think that they're shooting the Battle Room sequences outdoors....no matter what the whether is. Or whether it is or isn't.

Check out tweets from Jane Wishashan ( @jwishashan ). Looks to have been an extra or something? Lots of tweets with the EG cast, plus:

Asa Butterfield : @jwishashan Nice to see you again (3rd time ;)) Are you going to be in anymore of the production? You might enjoy flying around in zero G ;)
Jane Wishashan: @asabfb Ahaha you remembered! And fingers crossed that I get to go back soon. Zero gravity sounds like a lot of fun. ;p

Isn't it weird that Ender, who's supposed to be really small, is the tallest of the three? Oh well, things like these are going to inevitably change when they're adapted to the screen. At least Bean is the smallest of the bunch!

I guess that means Peter's role will be pretty small in the movie :?

They decided a long time ago to remove the whole Locke-Demosthenes storyline. All that's left are the scenes at the beginning of the novel.

And I suppose Viola Davis being in this scene is just Graff coming WITH Anderson to bring Ender to Battle School, not Graff alone.

They have to have added some component of it back in if they're going to do the sequels, or explain the Locke Proposal...

If they're following the comics (which I remember hearing they wanted to or were), the end of the movie could just be Ender with Valentine or his jeesh being happy about the end of the war. The real turmoil back on Earth may not be entirely explained. The last chapter is hard to do, but most likely they'll leave out the League War element.

I noticed they included the LOcke stuff in the summary. I wonder if they got their info from the book or the Director/producer

I think they're using the book as a reference for their character profiles. That's why the Locke stuff is in there.

I saw it too and laughed.

I follow a number of fandoms and EW always gets exclusives. I forecast an EG exclusive with EW in roughly 10 months.

hmmm, if Aramis wasn't mentioned I would think launch to battle school // launchy stuff when they first get there.

[Begin speculation] Maybe they're having Bean as a member of Ender's launch group? [Rampant speculation over]

I believe that is actually what they're doing. Could be wrong, but I've read it somewhere that I trusted.
