something i think about a Lot is how i want more fantasy that’s just. fun. that’s lighthearted and exciting and atmospheric and above all filled with joy. like ghibli movies, like stardust (my Personal Headcanon version of stardust that marries the best parts of the book with the movie), like parts of avatar the last airbender
where good wins over evil not through terrible sacrifice and tremendous battles and hardship, but through kindness and gentleness and good-ness. or where there is no “evil” and the journey is about discovering and uncovering and exploring yourself, becoming the best you you can be under the circumstances you are given
where it isn’t the Entire World at stake, where every adventure isn’t full of mortal peril and enemies around the corner, where the world feels like it’s beckoning you
come on! the road is waiting for you! see what’s out there! go, go see!
I know everyone is excited for Book of the Atlantic next year and trust me, I am too. But do you know what I’m really excited for?
THE DUB OF BOOK OF THE ATLANTIC
I MEAN THINK ABOUT IT, FUNIMATION GOT THE ORIGINAL DUB CREW ALL BACK TOGETHER FOR BOOK OF CIRCUS AND BOOK OF MURDER, WHY NOT BOOK OF THE ATLANTIC? I MEAN, JUST. IMAGINE. BRINA BALENCIA AND J. MICHAEL TATUM DOING PANIC VOICE FOR HALF THE MOVIE. CHERAMI LEIGH DELIVERING LIZZY’S BADASS SPEECH. JOHN SWAESEY FINDING A SERIOUS VOICE FOR UNDERTAKER. DANIEL FREDRICK AND JOEL MCDONALD JUST SCREAMING THEIR HEADS OFF DURING THE BIG FIGHT. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
sometimes I just miss the Hobbit? Like waiting for a new movie every year and then the extended editions. Being excited about the trailers, speed giffing, watching promo’s, going to premieres. We don’t get that anymore. The last thing we will get is HobbitCon and I’m both excited and sad because it’ll be the last one.
I REALLY wish this fandom would get a GRIP and realize how fucking important Nolan is. The fact that people are GOING TO SET and THEY HAVE TO STOP PRODUCTION for this. Is not something you brag about or be excited about. THIS IS A NOLAN MOVIE YOU DONT MAKE THEM STOP PRODUCTION FOR YOU. Harry is lucky to have this opportunity. Not the other way around. You need to stop treating this project like it’s the Harry Styles show because it’s so far from that.
Seriously though, fantastic beasts would have been a perfect opportunity to have a poc as one of the main leads and it would have not only been /sadly/ groundbreaking when it comes to whitewashed hollywood but also just really fuckin cool because they could have imbedded so many cultures together by having people from all different types of backgrounds join together to discover numerous exotic species and learn the many wonders of magic
the fact that this opportunity was shot is actually extremely disappointing and the fact that jk rowling is so on board with an all white cast is even more disappointing
