Red hair isn't race dependent. It's actually a mutation that happens independently in all groups. It's pretty rare in all groups though.

Yeah, that's my point. Give the character her red hair. Hell, dye the hair red like the did in Aquaman for Mera,

Mulan without the dragon seems dull.

Also rumored that there will be no songs, and it has one of the best with "Be a Man". Though they would probably ruin it if they did include it.

Mulan has had such a storied development, that I was shocked to see the trailer and that it was still coming out this year.

They had to re-confirm songs and Mushu last year.  But I think the status of songs is that they won't be sung by the cast, and Mushu may or may not be a dragon.

I'm already planning the MASS field trip with everyone near me that has kids to go to one of these theaters together at the same time to watch this movie.

I should have planned it 2 weeks ago though, and not roughly a little more than a week out from viewing day.

Possibly 27 people.....
10 Adults + 17+ children?

18 tickets bought. 16 claimed, so far.
potential 13 others (5 adults + 8 children) still undecided, but I didn't want to wait for them, as the seats I could book would likely be gone before they made up their mind.

and I'm offering to buy all the tickets (to be reimbursed) because I got my DMA account hooked up to Fandango, so I want those Disney points. LOL

PSA: Avatar Record really close to meeting it's Endgame



$7.2M world wide to go.
re-expansion has yet to hit several countries in the next few weeks, some even next month
and I can only guess Disney is still working on getting a brief re-release in China for that final eclipsing BO push.

edit: I didn't have Aladdin on my $B watch list..... however 2 people did.
Aladdin is so close to making that list.... does it have another $40M in the tank world wide!?



edit 2: I also didn't pick Far From Home to cross the $Billi mark, but looks like that's about to happen too.
Toy Story 4 is also very likely to crawl into that Billion$ box too

how does Lion King affect things next week? can LK become the fastest "animated" movie to cross the $B mark?

QUESTION!!!

Who here is so far right on all Billion $ movies?
I did not pick Captain Marvel, I did not pick Aladdin, and i did not pick Spider-man: Far From Home
There are only 2 people who believed in Aladdin, and even though it hasn't crossed that line yet..... it pretty much guaranteed at this point.

I didn't pick Aladdin, and I'm surprised it's doing so well! I should've figured since that kind of movie rarely gets a Hollywood backing.

Disney's Box Office $Billions Chart Update:



and we all know the 2 most recent (Aladdin and TS4) are very likely to cross that $1B mark
Spider-Man looks to get there too. That don't count for Disney, but it was made by Marvel, so it's the bonus marker.

Up Next:
Lion King - easy $Billion
Maleficent 2 - that's an easy 1/2 $B and likely to get close to 3/4 $B
Frozen 2 - another easy $B
Star Wars Ep9 - 1-1.5B

I think $4B in the next 4 movies is very doable.

I'm gonna have to watch that one later, but I'm not even sure what to say about this next one....

hopefully they fix the CG, but uncanny valley was the first phrase that came to mind on this one.

CATS
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtSd844cI7U

if the goal of the movie was to ummm... "sexualize"(?) or even humanize cat-people, like I assume was what was being attempted in the few gifs I've seen of the broadway play earlier today, then I think they really need to make some changes to the cg work, because the faces are a little off-putting, especially around the mouth area.



I can guess a very specific internet group of people that may like this, but I'm not sure how this appeals to most others.... unless they were huge fans of the broadway play.

I didn't see a release date though, so maybe they fix the visual issue they have with this....
or maybe it's just me not being interested in the slightest by this movie

watch it make a $Billion at the BO tho. LOL /s

All that CG just to make it look like people in catsuits.

Idiocracy. They could actually make them look like cats.

Captain, what is that?! LOL.

I really hope they keep any CGI down to the most absolute minimum. The biggest selling point of the original was having actual planes with a couple models. They even fired off a real missile. The cinematography and editing was impeccable, they recycled footage without you noticing. I don't want to watch videogame cutscenes.

CATS had a big problem.  If they went all practical then it could have just been the Broadway Show and it isn't truly special. 

They could have actually gone fully animated and use real cats, or animated like a traditional Disney movie, but with live action Disney that isn't popular anymore, and it kinda runs the idea that these cats represent people not real cats. 

I think it is too late to fix the CGI.  I think the people working on it are pretty proud of the work...it isn't bad animation or CGI, it is actually quite good, but the overall effect is just creepy.  So for whatever reason, that is way we are getting. 

I wonder if the animators just put more cat like features like cat noses on the faces if it would help.

I watched some segment a little while ago on how they were doing it, and it looked like it could turn out interesting. They built large sets and had tons of telemetry data. All to make it look like the stage play. I looked up the director and it's a competent director. Is this a producer issue?

It boggles me that you would spend 50 million dollars to make it look like this:
