The Last Unicorn Live-Action Remake Ideas
So in 2015, the rights to TLU will be back with Beagle where they belong and plans for a live-action remake MIGHT be back on the table. Maybe. Hopefully.
In the meantime, hey, here are some ideas I came up with, with the help of njgeekgirl.
Amalthea- There are a lot of actresses that would work well for this role. I’m tossing around Evanna Lynch, Emilia Clarke…they seem like young choices, but I feel it’s most important that the actress feel like an old soul and have a wisdom to her approach, which I think they both would. But I’m not 100% sold on anyone yet.
Schmendrick- MATT SMITH (it’d be perfect)
Molly Grue- HELENA BONHAM CARTER (similarly perfect)
Lir- For some reason, Liam Hemsworth keeps cropping up in my mind.
Haggard- Christopher Lee, obviously.
And we’re thinking Mumford and Sons or The Civil Wars could do an awesome cover of America’s original theme song. Certainly both groups should be on the soundtrack.
That’s all I have right now. Your opinion may vary, that’s cool. Feel free to share your ideas. Maybe someone with decision-making power will see the conversation and get inspired.
Probably not, but you never know.

I can’t be the only one who’d love to see this on a t-shirt too, right?
Someone get this at a tattoo and prove how Lion King hardcore you are.

If that date is true…
…I know what I’m doing on my birthday.
Your character: I really feel like snuggles and fluff tonight. Can I?
You: Yeah about that. I’m gonna throw you in a tiny prison on the top of a mountain and it’s gonna be frigidly cold and I’m gonna break all your limbs while the other half of your OTP hears you crying and can do nothing about that. How about that fluff instead?
I have just decided that I am gonna eat a lot of macaroni and cheese for my goddamn birthday because there is a macaroni and cheese hotdog with truffle oil at Hollywood Studios and goddamn if I am not hungry now.

I can’t even handle how amazing these are.

Ain’t going so well.
I'm sorry, Geeky. But I'll tag it from now on.
it’s more of a joking OH MY GOD NOT AGAIN with let it go, it is not even anyone’s fault. XD
i don’t even care if anyone tags it. XDDDD too many assholes in this place.
It’s not like with my adoption shit where I nearly pass out from the stress. This is more like hearing something on the radio and you yell because it’s in your head. XXDDD

When you finally have money before vacation and: “Okay what else do I need? Okay nothing? Nothing? I spend on bills and vacation time?”
"Okay nothing? :( Nothing? Nothing? Guys I seriously cannot haul that much back from Disney World."
Am like…incredibly close to treating myself to a Vera Bradley bag when I go down to WDW but I may just promise myself to be good.
But I might not, of course.
You know what makes me the saddest about Lilo and Stitch?
When she gets kicked out of the dance class, she’s the only person we know for sure is native Hawaiian in her age bracket in the class.
There’s Myrtle, who is white, Elena who is white (f she’s the blonde one), Theresa who’s background is unclear, and Yuki who is implied, based on the name and the large Japanese population in Hawaii, to be Japanese.
She is taking a dance class of a dance traditional to her people.
And she is kicked out primarily because a white girl, Myrtle, is bullying her.
How fucking sad is that?
This always got me about the movie. I always
IN THE FACE AND EXISTENCE
Also, the hula dancing runs in the family, as we find out in the sequel that her mother was a dance champion. It’s clear in this scene that the deaths of her mother and father are still fresh in her mind and I think the dancing reminds her of her mother and happier times. Maybe they practiced together frequently? Idk, it’s just the vibe I get. That Lilo is there to do her mother proud, rather than to make friends and socialize like the others there.
Hi, putting my two cents here…… I just… girls who take hula, especially in a hālau like this, where they compete/perform, DO NOT GO TO JUST SOCIALIZE. Do you know how fucking hard everyone works in hula? You think people are there to fuck around? No. Granted, these girls, a lot of the girls in this hālau are very young - but girls start early. I knew girls who started dancing when they were like 3 or when they could walk. The amount of regiment you go through is amazing. Some hālaus, from what I understand, warm up for 1 hour+ and then dance for hours after that. The amount of dedication these girls, every single one, puts in their dancing is amazing.
They essentially work on a handful of numbers, if that, for quite some time. Perfecting in timing and tempo with not only the music but also the other dancers. As well as learning the Hawai’ian language, and the songs so they can call out verses. All of which are SO important. If you want to watch how on point these dancers are, I recommend you look up the Merrie Monarch Festival - the hula competitions that happens every year. The level of perfection every hālau reaches for is that.
Seeing how all of the dancers are all timed perfectly, even in their chanting, I’m guessing that this is a rather good hālau and the students are extremely disciplined. And they competed in Merrie Monarch as we can see here:
Though the one thing that’s incorrect, is the fact that I believe you have to be 13 years old to compete in Merrie Monarch. But I digress.
Now, I don’t know about other people and their experience in a hālau, but… from what I understand, a respectable hālau doesn’t allow their students to go there just to socialize and muck around.
I wasn’t as lucky as my sister to be part of a phenomenal hālau when I was younger. The hālau my sister and I frequented while I lived in Hawai’i was very lax. But I dreamed - I wanted so bad to compete - to be part of a proper hālau. I had moved away to college when my sister began going to the hālau that I’ve dreamt of for so long. She had to quit because she couldn’t keep up - it was too hard for her. People literally were not there to muck around. Granted, some people can’t keep up - like my sister, but it still doesn’t mean that these girls aren’t disciplined.
^ This commentary should be more reblogged than anything else.
People don’t understand how difficult this is.

Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?
Preorder Lammily, a fashion doll with average human proportions.
I want one!
Average is beautiful, yeah, but it failed to answer my questions.
This doll is beautiful for collectors, but what’s it bringing for playtime?
How easy is Lammily to dress and undress? Sure she’s giving us that fit and healthy lifestyle look with accessories, but what’s going to make a child want to pick up Lammily over another doll?
Barbie, Everafter High, Monster High, Bratz, etc… all bring something to the table. Barbie can do anything she wants to simply because she can. High dolls all have unique stories and outrageous wardrobes. Bratz were a different kind of fashion doll that spawned even bigger toys.
What’s Lammily got that everyone else doesn’t have?
Even Disney Princess dolls have something unique that another doll won’t. Even if it’s singing with a quick change ballgown, or a mermaid series with pretty change colors…
It’s not about teaching little girls that “average is beautiful”. It never was. It’s about making imaginations work in overdrive and playing pretend. What will Lammily do to help in that process? What will Lammily do for our little thinkers to help them?
The much now-hated Barbie can be an astronaut, a veterinarian, a pediatrician, a teacher, has a basketball set, and even has a family set. Barbie can be a business woman and still has accessories to make her as girly or as not girly as you want.
Her proportions are not for beauty, but because she’s easier to dress when she has exaggerated features. The only thing I ever found a pain on Barbie to dress was those molded fingers. I’ve broken and bent many.
I’m not seeing any reason to support Lammily. She’ll be a lovely jewel for doll collectors, don’t get me wrong, but as a toy for children? I see absolutely no reason to purchase her when there are dolls that have wonderful stories that are career motivators, are about being true to one’s self, and are about finding your own sense of fashion.
I find that much more important than about the vanities of body, be it average, skinny, or overweight.
That’s my two cents. Still, I do love dolls and this is very relevant to many friends of mine.
