    The movie by itself is really great, I loved the Toto scene and Elinor is just weird, but compared to the book, the movie is just like the Eragon movie. They changed and cut out some of the best scenes, in my opinion, if people loved the book, directors. producers and stuff should stick to the book, like the Harry Potter movies, the cast actually said lines right out of the book and people didn't care, they just wanted to see the book living and breathing.

    This was a very good family movie. My 13, 11, 7 and 4 year old all watched it and didn't even wiggle. My husband and I also enjoyed it. Very beautifully set and a fun story.
