DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – “John Carter” stars Taylor Kitsch from “Friday Night Lights” as a Civil War Captain who is mysteriously transported to Mars during its own civil war.  It is based on the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, who also wrote the “Tarzan” series.

Pre-production on “John Carter” started back in 1931, when they discussed turning it into an animated feature.  Had that happened, it would have beaten Disney’s “Snow White and“ the Seven Dwarfs” as the world’s first animated feature film. Instead, it wasn’t released until this year!
