Okay, this weekend didn’t go as planned. For personal reasons, accompanied by a stubborn headache. Which sucks because I’ve gotten a lot of amazing prompts I’m disinclined to waste–so I won’t. I’m extending the theme of this weekend for the next one. Because I can and because I think we all deserve some more Tony Stark & Villains content in our lives.
to this day, i still wonder how exactly the production for the 2012 lorax really went down. there’s not much record about it, at least that i could find, but honestly, looking at the earlier concepts, you can see that it was originally intended to be pretty different than what ended up on screen.
which by itself it’s pretty normal, of course. movies often change greatly from their original concept during production, sometimes retaining only the most basic set-up of what once was, but what i truly mean is that we know for sure that the lorax was, at one point, a movie that seriously considered including a rock opera villain ballad such as this
yet somehow the song intended for this exact same sequence ended up being. well. this
and i just want to know what was lost in the transition there because in my opinion, there is no way that the cutesy and sickeningly cheery lorax that we know could have even intended to include a song like the first one in it. this belongs to a very different movie.
honestly tho anyone who says “well this character isn’t explicitly trans!!1!!” as a response to a trans headcanon can suck my packer.
if a cis person can say that a character likes eating ravioli at 3am w absolutely 0 evidence from the source material, then u bet ur binder imma talk about my Trans Interpretation™ of a popular character. im not sayin’ u gotta have the same headcanon as me, but for The Love Of God jsut don;t try to derail mine.
