If the movie was horrible I'd cry :( .....no just kidding. I would be pretty upset about it because they would just ruin the books. And that just cannot happen. that would be disaterous. :shock:

Yep, that's one thing that is certain. Sadly. They really are going to combine the first 2 books. Wonder how they're going to pull that off...

Very badly (Unless they make the movie go for 5hrs). They're making a whole new ending for the movie, as opposed to the books too. Does that mean Cudgeon will be alive? Ylarhl! (Ku'Aeran swear-word)

But, on the other hand, if Butler doesn't die in the third book/second movie, I'm quite happy. :D

I think Butler will die in the movie from TEC. That's a big part in the book, they can't just leave that out. Or does any of you have a different opinion about that?

TEC would have been fine without it, but

a) Artemis and Holly would not be as close as they are,
b) The plot would have been nowhere near as good,
and c) the book would be around seventy pages shorter.

Ok, so what would happen if Butler didn't die in TEC?

1) Artemis wouldn't have had to seek contact with the fairies.
2 ) The C-Cube probably wouldn't have been stolen.
3) The mind-wipe wouldn't have happened.
4) We wouldn't have heard anything about Juliet anymore.
5) We would've never had a human villain.

Well, point 4 and 5 probably aren't as good, but points 1, 2 and 3 are major things in the book, so it has to happen.

I can't say I wouldn't be surprised.
Movies always ruin the books. It has been proven time and again...
Harry Potter...
Stephen King books...
Dean Koontz books...
The Jackal (though I've never read the book, I know it's different from the movie)
Spider-Man...
You know what will be worse? If they try and make some game!

It's in Development Hell, which basically means: We're not really interested in this yet, we'll get back to you after we've done Harry Potter and Twilight. *kicks us out of office*
About that whole thing about Butler dying or not dying in the TEC's movie form, WHY CAN'T THEY JUST STICK TO THY BLOODY PLOT, LIKE EOIN WROTE IT?????????!!?!?
That is one reason, if I were to be a writer, I would want to direct and/or script my book myself.

I guess it's just one of those things in life....

What if it tanks? I certainly wouldn't be surprised. Angry, yes. Surprised? No, not at all...
I hope they do it okay enough where they don't screw up a chance for Future sequels though...

It can go 2 ways. They screwed up Eragon, and some of Harry Potter, but they made a pretty good movie from Twilight. So, we'll just have to wait and see.
