I mean, I'll keep an open mind, but the way Konietzko and DiMartino throw animation under the bus in that quote and continue this cockamamie idea that your stories don't count until they're filmed with real actors is just really disappointing.

 

I really hope they only said that because Netflix gave them a show, because Avatar has fantastic animation and it really seems from that quote that they only went with it because it was there only option at the time.

 

The only thing this show has going for it for me at the moment is that the original creators are helming this (so the adaption shouldn't be that bad, hopefully), and that the diverse cast of the original show won't be replaced with a bunch of famous white actors (which is another problem that anime adaptions suffer from because Hollywood only cares about diversity when it wants to).

 

I am interested in seeing if they will be bringing in some familiar faces that would be 'culture appropriate' for the show, like Donny Yen or Chow yun Fat.

Sad I missed out of Frederick, but hopefully he'll be coming to the shop soon!

Decided to post in this finally lol

As always, great minifigs and good bits of lore too. I love the inclusion of superhero type characters and the idea that Sareshi intentionality dress that way in order to attract and capture men. Valanar also reminds me of the Nameless One from my Age of Darkness thing I keep talking about.

If youre looking for more representation for minorities in fantasy, you might be interested in two practically overlooked book series known as Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia.

You could say that these depictions of them are outdated or racist, but I prefer to think of it being historically accurate to how these minorities acted and/or were perceived as in real life in this time period (i.e. everyone stayed in their land unless they were trading or killing each other).

Please dont perceive this as an attack on your fantasy universe: Im just complaining about something that bothers me about most modern fantasy/storytelling.

For anyone who's actually interested, EA has an article about the stuff they'll be adding to Battlefront 2 for the rest of the year. So here's the rundown for anyone who's interested:

 

September:

Apparently, you'll be able to spawn on other team members and other stuff in the improved squad system.

91st Recon Corps and 104th Wolfpack Battalion Skins

 

October:

General Grevious 

 

November:

Obiwan

Genosis

Three new vehicles: the STAP, BARC speeder, and the AT-TE

212 Attack Battalion Skins

 

Winter:

Count Dooku

The Coruscant Guard Skins

A non-linear sandbox gamemode where apparently you capture control points so you can bring down capital ships (not gonna lie, that sounds awesome)

Anakin Skywalker

501st LEGION SKINS BABY

Additional skins for Grevious, Obi-wan, Dooku, and Skywalker

 

I don't understand why these weren't features from launch, but I'm glad that at least they'll be adding them now.
