Just last week, we brought you the first few images from the production of director Gavin Hood‘s forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s Hugo and Nebula Award-winning sci-fi novel Ender’s Game, which is set to hit theaters next fall.
Now, thanks again to the official production blog we bring you the first look at the bedroom of the titular character, portrayed by Asa Butterfield. Check it out below, along with the attached production notes!
The more futuristic the world, the more invisible its technology. So why shouldn’t Ender’s room look just like any normal kid’s room? And not every future is a dark dystopia. The world that Ender lives in is a world worth saving. That’s why he is willing to leave his family to go into an orbiting Battle School and risk not seeing his sister, Valentine, again until they are both adults. That doesn’t mean this world doesn’t have rules. Ender’s parents had to get permission from the state to have a third child, and if Ender ever had any doubt if he was unwanted, his mother and father’s shock at having their son recruited to be a future leader and transferred to space makes it clear to him that they’ve always loved him. They know that when Ender leaves the safety of his home, they will not be able to protect him any longer. We will keep your room for you just as you left it, Ender…
About Ender’s Game:
Set in Earth’s future, the novel presents an imperiled humankind who have barely survived two conflicts with the Formics (an insectoid alien race also known as the “Buggers”). In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. The world’s most talented children, including the novel’s protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room where Ender’s tactical genius is revealed.
Ender’s Game starring Asa Butterfield, Abigail Breslin, Brendan Meyer, Harrison Ford, Viola Davis and Hailee Steinfeld is slated to hit theaters on November 1st, 2013.
