An upcoming Netflix series based on books and video games set in a fictional world inspired by European fantasy and folklore. Becuase the world the series takes place is fictional, the race of the characters should not matter when it comes to casting actors to play their roles. Therefore, for the sake of diversity, it should be acceptable for a character or group of characters who have been canonically described as caucasian to have their race changed when considering actors to play said roles.
Avatar - The Last Airbender:
An upcoming Netflix series based on an animated show set in a fictional world inspired by various Asian cultures. Despite the world the show takes place being entirely fictional, the race of the actors playing the roles of the characters must and should reflect the original portrayals as seen in the show. Therefore, for the sake of staying true to the original material, only actors of Asian, Middle Eastern, South American and Native Inuit ethnicities should be considered to play the roles of these characters. In addition, the inclusion of caucasian actors for any role will not only be considered objectionable, it will also be openly protested.
Well, do I have this correct, or am I misreading something?
>>172808 Read some article with an interview with one of the live-action team numbnuts talking about how the Avatar was 'whitewashed,' it's just one of THOSE; "wah war weese wappowanweesee waopple wawhyte." It's like actual retards directing tv shows now.
>>172814 >It's like actual retards directing tv shows now. This. I have so little hope for anything new coming out of Hollywood I don't even bother to get excited about things anymore. I'm just going to hole up in my bunker, watch old shows and anime, and wait for these idiots to either go bankrupt or start producing quality entertainment again.
>>172816 This is exactly what you should do though. The only reason these movies get such high praise now is because we don't get anything better and what we do get is 'flawless' entertainment because it never fails in a way that matters because it's always so mediocre, people don't care about that which isn't immediately egregious.
How could any director looking for a positive-sum fail at making a return if mediocrity is the challenge and perfecting the achievement of mediocrity is the goal?
>>172808 THEY ARE NOT MAKING ANOTHER FUCKING BUTCHERING OF THE LAST AIRBENDER AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
