John Carter of Mars film 'will satisfy everyone'

12th July 2011

The film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom novels featuring John Carter of Mars will satisfy fans of the novels and newcomers alike, director Andrew Stanton has revealed.

Burroughs's novels are held in high regard by his fans, with many proposed film adaptations quashed over the years due to dissatisfaction with the screenplay, but Stanton claims the film will be well received by audiences when it is released in March next year.

Beginning with the 1917 novel A Princess of Mars - a compilation of weekly serials published in 1912 - the series follows the exploits of John Carter and Martian princess Dejah Thoris on the red planet and later spawned many spin-off novels starring their descendants.

The film adaptation is based on the first book in the series and will hopefully be followed by sequels if it proves to be a success, Stanton claimed.

'We've been working a long time and Disney has done an amazing job. We kept holding on until we had a trailer that represented what it felt like we wanted,' he told Collider.

The trailer, showing the first proper glimpse of John Carter of Mars, will be shown before every cinema screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, which is released worldwide on Friday (July 15th).
