30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
The world of Ender’s Game is massive, so in theory it made sense to try to turn it into a successful film franchise. It also came out in 2013, at the height of the YA boom, when stories about teenagers saving the world were at their most popular. This one also came loaded with adult stars that should have theoretically made it an enormous hit. Instead, the film was swallowed up by other blockbusters surrounding it.
The world of Ender’s Game is fascinating and complex. In fact, it may be so complex that it would work better as a TV series than it did as a movie.
