sailboarding

anonymous asked:

I remember a few months ago that some cels from the Saban Moon animation showed up on ebay or something and they were exactly as terrible and glorious as you might think. I'm glad it never came to be, but I will say that I'm weirdly fond of the flying laser wheelchair--I just think it'd be a kind of kickass idea in any other story.

Oh, you mean this?

Wasn’t Sailor Mercury already the most useless sailor scout in terms of firepower, they gotta make her disabled, too?

‘Cuz, you know…being in a wheelchair and all, she can’t ride on those sweet sailboards that you can use in space without needing to breathe.

They gotta do all the space battlez out in the space.

Gotta battle the space shipz.

With the bad space guys on ‘em.

LOOK AT THIS BITCH, IT’S LIKE SHE ESCAPED FROM DISNEY’S GARGOYLES, JESUS CHRIST.

And, of course, we have our multi-ethnic Space Planeteer Jewel Riders.

I GUESS MAYBE SAILOR USELESS FEET MUST BE FROM IRELAND, OR SOMETHING.

IRISH ETHNICITY.

OR MAYBE THE WHEELCHAIR IS AN EXCUSE FOR SO MANY WHITE CHICKS, BECAUSE TOKEN DISABLED PERSON.

Looks like someone’s had plastic surgery, AMIRITE?

IT’S LIKE ESCAPE FROM L.A. BRUCE CAMPBELL VS MANIAC COP BRUCE CAMPBELL

No, but seriously.

Let us all be glad that this concept never made it past a 17 minute concept reel, a music video, and the pilot that the world really never needs to see.

Disclaimer:  I’d just like to note that I have nothing against those with disabilities, especially considering I take care of two on a daily basis.  While I can appreciate the thought behind adding diversity in a series, it just isn’t appropriate when it veers so drastically away from the source material as to make a mockery of its own characters.
