It's sort of a cross between a children's sci-fi/fantasy, religious allegory, and class lecture in theoretical physics

Oh boy, I bet the kids love it. 

The book's language has a certain romance/whimsy to it that makes it palatable. Even when it does get didactic it does it in a charming way

Believe it or not, just a couple days ago I was actually wondering if anybody was trying to make a theatrical film out of this book.I like the idea of animation people being brought over to WRITE - if you're not directing, there's less pressure on you if you fail a la Stanton. (I know Dean DeBlois sold a few live-action scripts between Lilo and Stitch and HTTYD, though in those cases, he was to direct/produce as well - and none of them made it to production.)

Jennifer Lee isn't exactly an animation person. She only has education in writing.

Yeah, you don't necessarily have to be able to animate in order to direct an animated film. Hence why I think people make too big a deal out of the difficulties of animation directors going to live action and vice versa. Stanton failed because he got too big an ego and grossly overestimated the appeal the material he was adapting from still had, both of which can just as easily happen to a live action filmmaker with a blank check

Doesn't it involve tesseract, the same physics tool that a certain cinematic universe like to use :) ?


Neither Marvel nor L'Engle use the actual mathematical concept. They just use it as a cool word (L'Engle's is basically a version of a wormhole and Marvel's is basically a shiny glowing box.) :P
