I´m also already excited... I´m a little sad though, the movie even comes out rather late in the US. I´m going there on vacation this summer so I thought that maybe I´d be lucky and could already see it there... But no chance..
You are so right. I mean that´s the problem if a book is turned into a film, isn´t it? They leave out so much and the people who have read the book are almost every time disappointed, although the first movie wasn´t as bad as I would have thought.. Let´s hope the best that it will be awesome :) I´m already sick of waiting for it, I mean, hello, end of the year? That is still so much tiiime :(
