If at first you don't succeed, I guess.

Better be better then the movie(s).

Not that that is a high bar to meet.

I wonder if they'll start with 12-year olds as in the books, or age them up a bit.

/12-year olds, dude

RR was supposedly not happy with the films, and he's heavily involved with this series. My husband loves the books (hey, if he likes them, that's cool), so I might resub to D+ for this.

So will this version have anything to do with the books?

Here's hoping they treat it better than they treated Artemis Fowl.

My daughter (15) is very excited about this.  She's been following news on it for a while.  Sounds like the plan is indeed to start with them at 12 - as character age is one of the things the author disliked about the movies (or The Abominations, as my daughter refers to them).

Abominations indeed, the "kids" were in their twenties. It was ridiculous.
