Do you think unicorns will be made in 3D? ¬_¬; I hope not, considering they did a very good job in Legend. I think they can tame horses to play for this movie as well (Mario Lurachi > all). XD

it says in the development site :

Quote: The unicorn will be a trained horse

(in fact 6-8 identical horses) altered by CGI extensions, make-up and occasionally full CGI replacement.

Thank you for posting this! I didn't know they were making a live action, I can hardly wait - Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in a film of one of my favorite books, doesn't get much better than that. n___n

I heard that the the original cast from the original movie is gonna play some characters.It's just too bad that the voice actress of the Unicorn/Amalthea isn't playing her part because she's too old.And the answer to you question about it being anime or not.It is anime you can tell by the eyes and the details of the animation only you need to look close to the details to see.
I can't wait till the live action is made but I bet they would have to use a white horse for the unicorn which would be close but the hooves and tail as well as the body wouldn't be the same. but oh well we can't have everything lol.and some of the effects would have to be altered I wonder how they're gonna do that...hmm..I can't wait to see how they make it.

True, the main character certainly displays the anime style,
yet still in my head i don't consider it anime. :)

For the live action, I hope they keep some of the songs and I think casting Lee as
King Haggard was a great choice.
