The highly anticipated film adaptation of Ender’s Game may have been pushed to November 2013, but that doesn’t mean that the official Ender’s Game production Tumblr, set up last month, is going to stop giving fans a weekly tease to get them all excited for the film.
So far, eager readers have seen glimpses of the cast at space camp, a picture of a sign at the Battle School, and a first look at Ender’s home bedroom, but this week, the blog has gifted us with the most revealing image yet — and we still don’t get to see a face! Instead, we’re looking at a small chip impacted on the neck of young Ender (Asa Butterfield), which the government inserts for observation purposes in the scary future presented in the novel. As readers of Ender’s Game know, this chip is used by Colonel Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) to monitor Ender’s actions and emotions on Earth — it’s what lets the Battle School know that Ender is the chosen child. Check out the full image below:
Gosh, who knew the back of a neck could be so exciting! Maybe the Girl with the Pearl Earring? How does this pic make you feel? Have you been checking out the Ender’s Game blog? And are you excited to see what other images might come out over the next year?
