May Dashner Chat Recap

James Dashner just finished his monthly Twitter Q & A session. Just in case you weren’t watching it go down tweet by tweet, here are some of the highlights.

On the movie front…

Wes Ball consulted with me much more than I could’ve ever dreamed on the script. I fully, 100% endorse it. And him. #dashnerchat

I agree that our cast for TMR is perfection. I’ve never ever seen a fandom so happy with the casting decisions. As am I. #dashnerchat

I can confirm that the movie does indeed have Glader slang. Not too much or it would get overbearing. But just enough. #dashnerchat

I don’t know when the first trailer is coming. But I think there might be something cool in time for Comic Con. #dashnerchat

And about the Maze Runner books themselves…

Once and for all, so let it be written, so let it be done: Minho is pronounced MIN-Hoe. #dashnerchat

Totally useless trivia: Frypan’s real name is Siggie. Although that’s not his real name, it’s his real nickname. #dashnerchat

The final big topic discussed was James’s upcoming book The Eye of Minds…

The inspiration for EYE OF MINDS is also the best way to describe it: THE MATRIX meets INCEPTION. #dashnerchat

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. People will like EYE OF MINDS more than MAZE RUNNER. #dashnerchat

Michael, the protag of EYE OF MINDS, is very different from Thomas. More laid back, more reckless. Kinda like Minho. #dashnerchat
