Recently I was thinking about the film and I thought, why this movie didn't gross that much money. I think its because many fans of the book series didn't get what they expected: A movie that is actually following the story in the books. But the thing is, that the producers and directors had to cut things out, chamging few things, etc. because of the 90-min-rule for animation films. Seriously, I never saw an animation film that is longer than 90 min(without credits). If you know one, post it. So they had to put the content of three books in just 90 min and you know what happend.
Well I think, if they would do a remake of the movie, they should make at first 3 parts. Each part would be just 60 min long and follow only one book. Thats how they would get more content in, this would result in a better rating, what will lead to a higher interest for not-fans. Another good point is, that all the books have cliffhangers, so if the first part was successful, the others will be too. But, lets assume that the first part wouldn't gross enough intrest to be worth continued. Than they could stop the production and wouldn't done that much work, as a 90 min film would need(33% less work). Finally, they wouldn't have to design the caracters again (except Otulissa and Strix Struma) so this is something they don't have to do ether.
Should the first three parts be successful, they could make up to 6 parts. 6 are enough, because pretty brutal scenes are coming after them (e.g. Phillip).
So what do you think about my idea?
