While at Comic-Con for a presentation in Hall H, co-stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld and Harrison Ford spoke to the press about their epic adventure film Ender’s Game. Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, the story is set in the near future, after a hostile alien race have attacked Earth and only the best young minds are recruited to lead their fellow soldiers into a battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.
During the interview, they talked about how cool it is to play characters from such a popular book, how they went about bringing their characters to life, the kinds of conversations they hope audiences will have after seeing the film, and their favorite trait for their character. Ford also talked about the differences between his character, Colonel Graff, and Han Solo, as well as his thoughts on author Orson Scott Card’s anti-gay comments. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
