It’s been nearly nine years since the release of Eragon on the big screen, leaving fans less than satisfied. Fox has been radio silent on the future of the franchise since.
Last Thursday, we released an article exploring when we will possibly see the Inheritance Cycle rebooted. We also released a petition imploring Fox, the film rights holder, to reboot the franchise.
The response was overwhelming – well beyond anything we expected. Over 4,000 fans signed the petition in its first day, with the count now totaling over 20,000. In under 24 hours, we saw:
- 720,000 fans reached reached on social media
- 17,100+ likes on Facebook
- 2,400+ comments on Facebook
- 2,200+ shares on Facebook
- 93 retweets on Twitter
- 86 favorites on Twitter
Since then, those numbers have increased even further and our campaign is only just getting started.
- We hit 5,500 signatures on Friday
- We hit 19,000 signatures on Saturday
- We hit 20,000 signatures on Sunday
- 1,139,000 fans reached on social media since Thursday
- 32,077 status “likes” on Facebook since Thursday
- 3,964 status comments on Facebook since Thursday
- 5,518 status shares on Facebook since Thursday
- 143 retweets and 209 favorites on Twitter since Thursday
- 403 notes on Tumblr since Thursday
- 682,000 visits to Shur’tugal since Thursday
Later this week, we’ll be exploring how Fox should go about making a reboot in a new article. We also have several additional articles planned, including:
- At what point did the film begin to lose its heart, and how could it have recovered?
- Which movies followed in Eragon’s footsteps, and were their mistakes similar to those of the Eragon movie?
- What elements in movies such as Hunger Games, Twilight, Fault in Our Stars, and Maze Runner appeal to their audiences?
- Is there a place in Hollywood for an Inheritance Cycle movie reboot?
- What other mediums could the Inheritance Cycle work well in?
Most importantly, we need as many fans as possible to show their support for a full reboot of the franchise by signing our petition. If you haven’t already, please consider adding your signature. If you have friends who are fellow readers, ask them to join in too!
Let’s show Fox that we are passionate about the series and fully stand behind a proper reboot!
