I had heard of the book, but didn’t realize Disney was making it into a movie! I guess I know what movie we’ll be seeing in March!

I cannot wait to see this. I might be more excited for it than my kids! I loved this book when I was a girl, and I love the way they’ve translated it to the big screen (so far, anyway).
I do recognize this name from a book! I never read it, but now that I read the synopsis – I want to read it, and see this movie. I love this genre too. The cast of the movie is so talented!

I hadn’t heard of this movie or the tv movie adaptation, and I’m not familiar with the book. It’s got some big names in the cast.
I just showed my girls the trailer, we are all super excited for this one, a great family movie we can all see together.
