My opinion is the mini series by The BBC because I feel like it would more likely follow the plotline of the book , the Time period that its based off of, it would  probably have better acting & a mini series would probably suit levithathain better then a movie because the book series takes place over the course three months. (Correct me if i'm wrong on that one.)
I feel like a Hollywood movie what would get it all wrong & the would acting be bad especially for alec & deryn because they'd  likely be played two Teenaged\ early twenty- something actors who can't do good Scottish & Austrian accents,  much less have good acting.

On the other hand, they could split it up into three movies.

That's a good idea.

But never a TV movie! Those things usually have bad actors.

I'm seeing that ABC run of Dinotopia for some reason...anyone remember that? And the short-lived TV show that came from it.

I remember that from when I was little, can't remember if it was any good or not though  :-\

Anyway, I vote for miniseries, but it doesn't have to be BBC, I remember fondly all of ABC's 3-4 week movie events that used to be awesome, like The 10th Kingdom, Arabian Nights, Jack and the Beanstalk and even a few Cinderella and Snow White's.
