I think the new movie based on Old Path White Clouds
will be considerably different than these animated versions. TNH avoided most of the references to the magical and miraculous and focused on the greatness of the Buddha's philosophy and teachings.
Of course, most of us here who are pretty versed in the Suttas and historical India so I'm sure we will still find plenty of 'mistakes' and other inaccuracies with the new movie, when it comes out.
If memory serves the maker was going to do a film version a while ago but it was very contraversial due to the planed layout or storyline it was going to have. but I think TNH does focus more on the philosophy & teachings than the godlyness (flobw) which can be found in certain Mahayana schools, although certainly it will be of a more Mahayana feel than Theravadan.
I have seen the cartoon, it was on youtube a while ago btw

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.John Stuart Mill
