    I also remember The Return Of The Sam-e-add as a children’s bbc tv series about 10 years ago. I think Anna Massey was in it, and one of the actresses who later went on to play a foster mum in Byker Grove. Does anyone else remember this? Answers on a postcard please, etc!!!!

    Judging by the trailer, and the plot summaries, it doesn’t seem much like the book at all.

    Freddie Highmore is lame as usual in this film.

    This is the 3rd version of 5 children and It to be made. There have also been 3 versions of the Phoenix and the Carpet. But no-one has ever done the 3rd (and best) book of the trilogy the Story of the Amulet. I think with today’s special effects it could be made into a great film.

    Did this seem to anyone else to be just a complete ripoff of the whole narnia thing. the children go to this new house where the owner is kinda a prick. find another dimention, and in the end find out that the guy was nice anyways.

    i know that must sound stupid

    coming from a movie about sandfairies

    but…

    they wouldn’t let the mom go to "look after the wounded" as robert says

    because of the lamb, cuz hes so young

    so ya, that part was unrealistic, and i think they shoulda stuck with the book

    cuz the ‘rents were with them in the book

    and the speical effects sucked ass, altho what can u expect from a bunch of brits anyway

    Apart from some pretty amusing dialogue from Kenneth Branagh and Eddie Izzard, this film sucked the big one!

    Sorry boss, but there’s only two men I trust. One of them’s me, the other’s not you!

    Would anyone know where I could buy the song that playes over the end credits in this film ? It is by Sean Lennon and is called Robert’s Theme. Maybe it was just written for this film though.

    Any help really would be appreciated,

    Thanks .

    Or do Kenneth Branagh and Eddie Izzard sound exactly alike?

    If you can’t remember it, it didn’t happen!

    Did we ever find out what these children’s last name was? Doesn’t Cyril say something to the Sand Fairy like, "We’re the Butterworths"? Does anyone remember?

    At the end there is this really awesome song and I don’t know the name. There’s no soundtrack and I can’t seem to find it elsewhere. Does anyone know what the song is?

    alright … time for some reality … jonathan bailey (cyril) is a hottie. end of story. haha but seriously he is and nobody else has seemed to notice this simple (yet obvious) fact! im talkin no fan sites, no web pages, not even a simple blog! i guess we’re being spoiled by the ability to contact our favorite people just by typing their name into google, but i like being spoiled in that sense! imagine, being able to contact someone who is not only extremely good looking, but also is an amazing actor! hah! very unrealistic at the moment, but it’s worth a try, isn’t it? i guess what it all comes down to, is that we, as a society, are spoiled rotten, so for one to be considered high maintenance in a society such as ours is preposterous. now i know i seem like im jumping from subject to subject at the drop of a dime, but, if you think about it, it all makes sense! maybe i’m crazy, surely we have all felt a little bit at some point in our lives, but more and more im finding myself wanting the unattainable. and, frankly, it’s rude of my to want to barge into this guy’s private life just because i saw one of his movies! alright, so now that i have solved the problem of the day i’m content to go eat ice cream or something else delicious and watch more movies …

    love always and forever,

    Could someone tell me how this movie ends? I saw up to the part where they wish for their dad, then Robert comes out and he fades away.

    I had the misfortune of seeing the trailer today when I went to see "Finding Neverland" (saw loads of Freddie Highmore, LOL!) but it wasn’t appealing at all. I’m a huge fan of the books and I also quite enjoyed the TV series, but this looked quite disappointing, I was hoping for a faithful adaptation. It might be an enjoyable film and fun, but nothing like the books and probably not very good. What was with the whole mysterious castle part? (If the children had been staying in a mysterious place, they wouldn’t really need magic to liven up their holiday.) And the Psammead looked like a turtle and not very good, the whole part with that freakish boy (cousin) looked terrible…argh. I won’t be going to see it, although I might watch it on DVD.

    I’m just sat staring out of the window of my place of work, watching the filming. The whole town has been taken back decades & its very surreal to walk through it in between takes! I’ve just seen Kenneth Brannagh, who is actually taller than I thought.

    Good way to get out of work too, as the windows of the first 2 floors are boarded up for filming, the entire office is crammed up to the top floor to watch!

    I’m not normally a religious man, but if you’re up there, save me Superman!

    Didn’t enjoy this I found it very boring compared to the BBC TV Series, specially The Return of the Psammead.

    I remember rushing home from school in time to watch the 25 minute episode on a thursday when I was around 11 in 1993!!! God seems like a lifetime ago!

    Has anyone seen this show.

    I saw it one christmas time and i thought it was way better than Five Children and it,

    The Psammead is also in it, Wouldn’t it be good if they could bring that out as a second film.

    Oh God I remember that terrible BBC TV series…oh God it was depressing. So dull you cried when you watched it. Compared to the magical ‘Narnia’ adaptations, it was a wash-out. Please tell me the book is better than that frightful TV show..

    Is this going to be exclusively released in the UK or will it make it to the US? Anyone?
