Summit Entertainment has released the official synopsis for Ender’s Game. As a fair warning to people who have not read the book, this synopsis contains book SPOILERS.

In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Note that I say book spoilers. With Summit pulling Mazer Rackham’s presence as Ender’s teacher this early on, it sounds like the movie will possibly be eliminating the long timeline put forth in the books to condense the story down.

What do you all think? Will Mazer’s relativistic space travel be cut and the story’s timeline be altered for the film?

    There is a ‘young’ Mazer in the credits. It looks like relativity is in the movie.

  2. It sounds like they’re not making any plans of delivering the twist surprise that Mazer Rackham is still alive. which is said, cause if they pulled it off it would blow the minds of those who haven’t read the book. 🙂
    But I can see it still having some “Shock-ness” to it if they cut out that he was sent on a ship at light speed to stay young. As long as they build up the hype and legend for him in the begening it should still deliver either way.
