Comic-Con 2008: “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time”

Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner spoke to Con-goers today in San Diego about the movie based on the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time game.  Here are the highlights courtesy

  • Mechner told CS that at a time he was mulling over an animated feature film of the property, but when Disney/Bruckheimer expressed interest in a big budget summer film, the offer was “too hard to resist”.
  • Mechner, who wrote the screenplay and is an executive producer for the film said that character development was a key for the movie: “You want to be taken on an emotional journey,” he said. “You want to care about the characters.”
  • He said it wasn’t practical for the film for the Prince to remain nameless.  His name, Dastan, was chosen because it is the Persian word for ‘trickster’.
  • The script is based soley on the Sands of Time game.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits theaters on June 19, 2009.
