Neil Gaiman publicly states his approval with every aspect of the movie, and stresses how true it is to the book, how thoroughly it does it justice.
So does Terry Pratchett.
It has an absolutely perfect cast.
The director is an even better choice.

A release date is set.
The trailer is incredible.

They file into their seats.
They wait through the previews.
"Now: Our Feature Presentation" scrolls across the screen.
The screen goes black.
The Best of Queen begins to play.
In its entirety.
In glorious surround sound.
