It's been in production since the Elan era.

The book was chopped up, originally, the ending did not lead into Speaker for the Dead. I strongly suspect that the Xenocide ended up with Demosthenes... but it can never be proven because greed is good.
gg

In movie form? hell yeah I want to see some of those formations and combat strategies in motion.
But I doubt that the strong emotionally sexual connection between the Xenocide and Demosthenes will be present.

I am trying to be cautiously optimistic. REALLY hope it doesn't suck.

Will definitely see it, enjoyed the book.

But the movie has an uphill battle. It has to pull off all those Battle Room scenes perfectly to appease fans.

And, actually watching it happen is going to be weird, because in the book, you sometimes become detached from the characters and forget they are only 8-12 years old. The movie will make that very obvious the entire time.

Orson Scott Card's original ending for Enders Game was not what we read.
It was changed to lead into Speaker for the Dead.

I am not certain what the true ending entailed, but I strongly believe it ended with the Xenocide and Demosthenes together. Several parts of Ender's Game STRONGLY hint towards this. One of the military characters(Been awhile...) heavily hints towards this when discussing Demosthenes with Ender, and Ender himself constantly alludes to it.

This is one of the reasons I despised Xenocide(Third Book) because at the beginning of the book, Valentine was headed towards Lucitania where Ender is.
And Ender talks about how he misses his sister and always cared for her in a very deep way... then in no uncertain terms, he says;
BUT DESPITE EVERYTHING I'VE EVER SAID AND DONE THAT IMPLIED OTHERWISE, IT WAS NEVER IN A SEXUAL WAY.

FUCK YOU ORSON SCOTT CARD.
