Iâ€™d be up to watching it again. I havenâ€™t watched it for a while now, but thatâ€™s because Iâ€™ve been busy with school and work etc. Only reason I was able to watch LoK was because I specifically carved out time for it hehe. Will post my thoughts when I re-watch the movie!
@donnagardner That is a legitimate question about accepting very strong female roles.
If The Legend of Korra were to become a live action film, I would hope they wouldn’t down play Korra’s role. It may have more to do with which studio is behind the movie, but in my mind, it wouldn’t make much sense for Korra to be downplayed (especially with the popularity of the series). What I mean is, it would be pretty hypocritical of Hollywood to do that when there have been strong female leads in movies before such as: Milla Jovovich in the Resident Evil series, Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider series, Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, Kate Beckinsale in Underworld series, Demi Moore in G I Jane, Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby………These are just a few examples that popped into my head and anyone is free to dispute them. Plus, I really don’t get out much to the movies so I don’t really have much to put
But despite how logical or illogical my reasoning above may be, I know it gets a lot more complicated with Hollywood, especially once it goes into “how can we present a strong female lead and still have a large audience to view the film. Hmm, maybe we should put the actress in this type of clothing to alter her appearance. Or maybe…” This could also apply to some of the examples I listed too, now that I think about it Honestly if that were the case, I’d rather see Korra’s role be downplayed in some way instead of changing Korra’s physical presentation to make it more acceptable or whatever.
I dunno, those were just some of my thoughts. Perhaps Iâ€™m thinking too simplistically or optimistically with the mentioning of strong female leads. Obviously I don’t work in Hollywood or have any ties to it. I do not claim to completely understand the way the business works, nor do I intend to come across as stereotypical or anything. I’d still watch The Legend of Korra if it became live action, though it would be sad/ a bit disappointing to see Korra’s role be downplayed if Hollywood decided to do that. But who knows whatâ€™ll happen!
