As I said when I saw this over at Macht's place, even if they can't pull it off, it's still cool that they've tried.
Flatland: The Movie, starring Martin Sheen and Kristen Bell (whom you've seen as Veronica Mars)
The movie is based on Edwin Abbott's classic novel Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, which is perhaps the world's only novel that manages successfully to blend geometry, social satire, and advocacy of reason-guided open-mindedness into a genuinely interesting story. If you've never read it, you should. Apparently the animated movie will only be thirty minutes long, but will be part of an educational DVD package; the idea is that it could be used by teachers.
It's a great idea, so watch out for it and in the meantime pass the word. If you have difficulty with the graphics-heavy website, above, you can still see the trailer via YouTube. I do want to insist on the point about getting the word out. We bloggers should send a clear message to producers and others that there is general interest in educational projects of this type. View the trailer, link to the website, ask others to do the same.
