k on (movie)

I’m watching La La Land and it’s ok but it could be a lot better!

  • Ryan Gosling didn’t seem suited to the musical aspects of the role, maybe cast a different hearthrob with more experience in the genre, like Zac Efron
  • Emma Stone similarly didn’t seem to thrive with the singing and dancing, so maybe cast someone again with experience and heck why not someone with proven chemistry with zac efron.. maybe vanessa hudgens
  • Maybe if the male love interest was into something a little more relatable than Jazz? Like maybe basketball? 
  • Female character seemed a little flat, maybe if she was also incredibly gifted with math and science? 
  • Setting of LA wasn’t particularly relatable, maybe if it was set somewhere universal? Like High School? 
  • Just watch High School Musical

Okay but why have a Han Solo movie when we could have a Cassian Andor movie?

Han is a great character, but Han Solo is a complete jackass when we first meet him. He’s rougishly handsome, yes, but an entire movie about that will probably get old (especially when Harrison Ford isn’t Han) and full of cliches. Cassian lost his parents, and was a layered character without Luke Skywalker’s help with a backstory almost everyone is curious about.

What if the hypothetical Cassian movie showed him having a motherly bond with someone in the Rebellion, instead of a fatherly one? Maybe there was some woman (preferably of color!) who wanted to help 6-year-old Cassian? What if it showed him slowly becoming more and more hardened, showed every battle he fought in, every time K-2 had to pick him from the ruins of a fight?

Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk are completely ready to be in another Star Wars movie, and Alan especially has been insistent on a Cassian (and K-2) backstory. The two loved working together as man and droid. Let’s give the audience something they want, and have actors excited to do the job that are fit to do it.

Just an idea.
