Okay while yes this is a movie you can watch with your kids, it’s not nearly as good as the book series. First of all as a person who read the series back when it first came out, I was dying to see how the movie would turn out. The movie came out this year and I’m now 18, so you already see the problem here. But that doesn’t matter I watched it because I had such good memories of the series and thought I’d check it out. I have never been so disappointed in my life. They barely kept anything the same, casting was awful, even basic descriptions of the characters didn’t match and overall it just completely ignored important details. a complete waste of money and I’m praying they won’t make a second one because i’m sure it was a huge failure for them too. How about let your kids read for a change.
