We've seen where Ender sits, we've seen where Ender goes to school (kind of), now we get to see where Ender sleeps. The producers of the big-screen Ender's Game adaptation have just posted a sneak peek at Ender's bedroom, and we're happy to report that Ender's a geek.
The new image was posted to the film's official production blog earlier this week, and it features a full view of Ender's work desk, complete with computer, planet stickers, rockets and all manner of fun geeky junk lying around. The image came complete with this caption, which provides a bit of explanation about the design and some of Ender's backstory.
"The more futuristic the world, the more invisible its technology. So why shouldn't Ender's room look just like any normal kid's room? And not every future is a dark dystopia. The world that Ender lives in is a world worth saving. That's why he is willing to leave his family to go into an orbiting Battle School and risk not seeing his sister, Valentine, again until they are both adults. That doesn't mean this world doesn't have rules. Ender's parents had to get permission from the state to have a third child, and if Ender ever had any doubt if he was unwanted, his mother and father's shock at having their son recruited to be a future leader and transferred to space makes it clear to him that they've always loved him. They know that when Ender leaves the safety of his home, they will not be able to protect him any longer. We will keep your room for you just as you left it, Ender..."
No costumes or characters yet, but this photo is the broadest look we've had into the Ender's Game world so far, and it's looking good. Maybe someday soon we'll see Ender himself (Asa Butterfield) sitting at that desk, preparing for his journey to Battle School.
