Please Make The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair a Soft, But Not Complete Reboot

As Narnia fans, we are concerned that the upcoming adaptation of The Silver Chair, because it is a reboot midway through the franchise, may disappoint fans and make the film harder to market. We respectfully request the film not be a complete do-over, but rather a soft reboot. We believe that it’s possible keep a sense of continuity while also allowing the filmmakers to add to the already existing cinematic vision of Narnia. We ask that the logo remain the same, which will help with marketing, and hope that musical themes from the first three movies will be employed in the film, similar to the way some musical continuity was kept in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. While Will Poulter may not be able to return, Ben Barnes, Peter Dinklage, Gary Sweet, and Liam Neeson should be able to reprise their roles as Caspian, Trumpkin, Drinian, and Aslan, respectively, the first three of which are very small roles in the book. Since most of The Silver Chair takes place North of Narnia and years after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, this should allow for plenty of freedom to add a creative spin to the already existing vibrant cinematic world of Narnia. Efforts to preserve continuity will also be rewarded when adaptations of the other books are made, especially The Magician’s Nephew and The Horse and His Boy, which are closely tied to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. This may seem like fan service or nostalgia (it has been over 12 years since the first film was released), but it will nevertheless help with marketing and box office. Adding these proven, requested elements will satisfy the already existing loyal fan base while attracting a new audience that will be drawn to the future releases of Narnia material. Thank you for your attention and consideration.

Marvel Studios, Give the Latino community a live action superhero movie too!

 While I’m completely elated for the black community on having this defining milestone with the revolutionary movie Black Panther, it also completely saddens me because it forces you to open your eyes on the other minorities being left behind and completely overlooked. Specifically for me, the Latino community. It saddens me that my kids and all the other kids in the Latino community do not have a superhero they can identify with in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We have only been constantly represented as dirty,lazy, gang-bangers/criminals, cleaners, and landscapers by Hollywood for lack of roles. That’s just not all of the Latino community. Unfortunately the heroes that are hispanic have always been white washed and/or casted by white actors or always just sidekicks to the sidekicks in Hollywood movies. I don’t want to take any of the positivity that Black Panther is creating because it truly is pathing the way for other minority communities to be heard. Our kids deserve to believe they can save the world, go on exciting adventures or accomplish the impossible too. We need a new live action superhero movie that illustrates a latino person that’s out there doing something positively amazing, something that they can look up to regardless of what society has prematurely branded them. We need something to give our kids something to look up to and say “hey maybe we can do something more than what we see around us.” Give the Latino community a live action Latino Superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, not just another supporting role!   Aunque estoy completamente eufórico por la comunidad negra por tener este hito decisivo con la revolucionaria película Black Panther, también me entristece por completo porque te obliga a abrir los ojos a las otras minorías que quedan atrás y que pasan por alto por completo. Específicamente para mí, la comunidad latina. Me entristece que mis hijos y todos los demás niños de la comunidad latina no tengan un superhéroe con el que puedan identificarse en el universo cinematográfico de Marvel. Solo nos han representado constantemente como holgazanes, holgazanes, delincuentes, limpiadores y jardineros pandilleros por Hollywood por falta de roles. Eso no es solo toda la comunidad latina. Desafortunadamente, los héroes que son hispanos siempre han sido blanqueados y / o lanzados por actores blancos o siempre solo como compinches con los compinches de las películas de Hollywood. No quiero tomar ninguna de las cosas positivas que Black Panther está creando porque realmente está allanando el camino para que se escuche a otras comunidades minoritarias. Nuestros niños merecen creer que pueden salvar el mundo, seguir emocionantes aventuras o lograr lo imposible también. Necesitamos una nueva película de superhéroes de acción en vivo que ilustre a una persona latina que está haciendo algo increíblemente positivo, algo que puedan admirar independientemente de lo que la sociedad les haya calificado prematuramente. Necesitamos algo para darles a nuestros hijos algo que admirar y decir "ojalá podamos hacer algo más de lo que vemos a nuestro alrededor". Dele a la comunidad latina una película de Superhéroes latinos en acción en el Universo cinematográfico Marvel, no solo otro apoyo ¡papel!
