I can't remember if there's a thread somewhere on this already, but if so, it's sunk to the back pages. Anyway, this looks to be a great movie. The effects are being done by Weta (Now the ILM of fantasy). I also purchased the video game today (EXTREMELY well polished for a movie game), and judging from the stuff shown in the clips, it stays pretty close to the book, which is one of my favorites of all time. I really hope this movie's BIG so they'll make all seven. Oh, and the first person to "point out" that this is the "second" book in the series, ask yourself, "Is 'A New Hope' the fourth movie in the Star Wars series?"
