What Space Camp forum would be complete without a place to talk about one of the best/worst movies of all time, SpaceCamp, as well as all Space Camp references in pop culture.

The original movie led you to think they were all going to the Space Camp at Kennedy (otherwise that was a long commute from Huntsville on two occasions in the film).
I can't help but wonder if this new film will have a similar concept and if so, if it'll take part back in the 80s or today. As nobody's flown from Kennedy in almost a decade, I wonder if they'd show the campers strapping into a SLS and suddenly going for a ride?
Without the (admittedly ridiculous) premise of the kids being launched into space, the movie wouldn't hold the same ideas as the original.
I just have three hopes for this:
1. It's entertaining
2. It's filmed at Huntsville
3. It's not written or acted like "Space Warriors"...
