Last year Summit invited press to the set of Ender’s Game in Atlanta. Many were among the crowd, including some of the Ender’s Game fansites. They got the chance to meet and interview the cast of the movie, including Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld and Ender himself, Asa Butterfield. They witnessed the sets (including the launchy barracks), touched the furniture and props that the actors were using in the film before they were displayed at San Diego’s Comic-Con 2013 at the Ender’s Game Fan Experience.
Along, with articles of the set visits many sites revealed new images of the Ender’s Game film. The first includes an aerial image of ground school, a military school on earth. The second, you will notice is a sort of boat house were Ender and Valentine have their conversation on the raft. I’ve heard it is a sort of retirement home for retired commanders and/or soldiers. Also, some commonly used images were the Formic planet, and the battle school classroom.
With so much to read I have put together a list of the set reports that have been popping up so you can check them out your selves. The first list are the fansite’s set reports given to you in multiple parts (the count depending on how the fansite decided to write it up).
If that’s not enough to read about the Ender’s Game set visits, check out these movie and entertainment websites that also took part in visiting the set.

Had enough of reading material? When it comes to Ender’s Game I’d love to know anything I can about the movie.
These articles have given us insight of how the Ender’s Game film was produced from the bottom to the top. Director and actors alike are passionate fans, as we are, and are excited to have had worked on the film. I believe that not every piece of work will satisfy a fan. We just have to keep an open mind and take the words of the ones behind the production for now until the movie premieres. Then we can judge for ourselves if the movie met our expectations or not. 55 more days until liftoff launchies.
Ender’s Game premieres November 1st.
