Cool! My wife was wondering about that.

Isn't it based off of a book or a previous show or movie?

Yes, there is a book both movies were based on. The new one is said to follow the book more closely. The first movie had John Wayne as the starring role. It was done in the early 70s and is also a great movie!

Me too.
When I was a kid I watched the Searchers and did not like it but now I do like it.
Still hate to watch any of his movies that he dies in.

No not yet, Disney is the only ones that bring out movies on DVD - Blu-ray a week after they are shown on the big screen.

Now if your asking about John Wayne then they have a few
