    New version of "NIMH" in the works

    New film version of 'Rats of NIMH' in works (Reuters) - Yahoo! Movies

    Not sure how I feel about this. I loved the Don Bluth version. I have it on VHS, but I really need to get it on DVD, but the one available now has sucky extras. Maybe they'll come out with a nice 30th anniversary version in 2012. LOL!

    You should at least rent the current DVD if you love the movie so much as the audio commentary and featurette are very interesting. However, a better DVD would of course be more awesome.

    The new version might be good.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    One of my favorite books as a child. Would love to see another version of this.

    Re: New version of "NIMH" in the works

    While I loved the book and really loved the Don Bluth movie, I really don't have high hopes for this...mainly due to 1. The live action/ CGI characters have never really worked at all and 2. I'm just getting really tired of Hollywood resorting to classic movies or series to try and make a buck.

    I'm not crazy, now if you will excuse me I have tea time with the ghosts at Haunted Mansion.

    Re: New version of "NIMH" in the works

    it sounds like it may be good, but i am tired of all the remakes. why cant people just enjoy the past and make their kids familiar with the old versions. the "real" versions. and why cant anybody come up with something new?

    LOVED the original. Like Aimster, been waiting for a decent DVD version. I'm always skeptical of things like this though.

    The voice cast in the original was great too. Derek Jacobi as Nicodemous, Dom DeLuise as Jeremy the crow.... I can't remember who voiced Mrs Brisby but I remember reading it was her last performance. The guy who voiced The Great Owl was really good and here's a kicker... Shannen Doherty voiced the sister mouse, Theresa.
