revoutionary girl utena

The “LEGO (X)” games are the most prominent use of pantomime in popular culture since movies got sound

It helps for pantomime and puppetry to use stories and idioms people know already, or at least some well of meaning lying outside the performance itself

Jolly Ship the Whiz-Bang had music and plus even if the plots were novel pirates are a familiar idiom

Or you can take the alienation effect and just run with it

Oh man LEGO Utena would be AMAZING
