We are all super excited to see "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials," and it seems author James Dashner is just as excited to have fans witness the adaptation of his second novel in the Maze Runner series on the big screen, starrin Dylan O'Brien!
In an exclusive interview with J-14 James Dashner said one thing he's the most excited to have fans of the series see if the make up of the world itself.
"Wes Ball and his filmmaking team have done a spectacular job of bringing to life the full desolation and spectacular sights of the ruined world that makes up the Scorch," said Dashner. "The movie is just a visual feast, so many cool things to look at and observe. It’ll be a great backdrop for what I hope is an enjoyable story."
Dashner went on to add that while there are some differences from the novel to the big screen, he's hopeful fans will enjoy the action-packed adaptation.
"There are many little differences, and a few big differences," said Dashner. "And then each difference has ripple effects, so that often the two things seem even more separate. But I support them all and feel good about everything. The characters are there, the world is there, the spirit and tone are there, the majority of favorite scenes are there. I’m not sure we could’ve possibly asked for more. Fans can be very particular, however, which is great. It means they love what I created. But I just hope they’ll have an open mind and enjoy the films as if they’re experiencing the story again for the very first time, something we rarely get to do."
