I think it's best to make it an animated movie for kids. It would be much more appealing to the target audience.

I think animations are great for kids. I noticed that it captures their interest rather quick.

I think that if trying to attract children then animation should be used. As an adult I would appreciate an animation as well.

Animation certainly sounds like a good idea. As a movie, I don't really see how they can bring out the good parts.

I would choose a movie simply because I'm not fond of CGI animation these days. If they did it in the old hand-drawn style then maybe animation would be good. They'd also have to have some musical numbers because I think everyone likes those.

It just depends on how they did it I suppose. If the script is a good adaptation, then that is the most important thing. A lot of movies put way too much filler just so they can insert more bloated, nonsensical action sequences. I prefer more heart and emotion to carry the story, but too often it's become secondary in modern children's movies.

I think animation is a much better option, considering the particular age group that the book is catering to.

I will almost always prefer animation over live-action.

For me, it prefer movie than animation because in the movie, the characters are true people unlike in the animation that the characters are just a fiction. I don't want that the children will believe in a fiction.
