It would be great if they brought back that guy who played him in the Broadway show.

I wouldn't say that Asher Angel is random. He is on Disney's Andi Mack and was in Shazam with Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi).


He looks like he's fourteen, it's just weird, especially since Disney insisted with the other princes /princesses to be a bit older than they were in the original films. He looks more like a possible Taran than an Eric.

As you pointed out, they seem to be really pandering for the tween Disney Channel audience here based on Asher Angel and Harry Styles as the main actors they are considering for Eric. At least if this film had been made 15 years ago, Lindsay Lohan would have had the talent and looks to carry out the role unlike these two less than inspired choices.

Would love Tituss Burgess back as Sebastian!

Loved Asher Angel in Shazam! but I think he's a bit too young for Eric.

Speaking of Tituss Burgess, he should be giving a performance on The View this Friday. (If you can suffer fast forwarding through John McCain's Daughter in order to see him. :wink: )

A young Emma Stone would have been a really good Ariel.

Current Emma Stone would still be perfect: great energetic actress, fantastic singer, looks good with red hair, big expressive eyes, etc.

I doubt Emma Stone could fully pull off the naiveté of Ariel, personally. I like the idea of her as the cynical Megara better. Cruella is going to be so weird.

If this film had come out in the early 2010s, I could see Emma Stone playing a teenager like she did in Easy A and The Amazing Spider-Man. Even so, she doesn't look that much older so I don't think it would be completely unbelievable for her to play the role especially since she was nearly in Little Women this year as well before she backed out and was replaced with Emma Watson.

Oh, hm, ok. I didn't know Little Women was about teenagers. I still think Emma Stone looks too old to be Ariel now, but maybe not.

Yes, the sisters in Little Women are all teens or younger. I agree that Emma Stone doesn't resemble a teenager anymore but half of the TV shows about high school today feature actors and actresses in their late 20s who don't even resemble teens but they still get the roles. Since Emma Stone has portrayed so many teenage characters in this past decade alone, I'd be more accepting of her as Ariel. Especially since Emma Watson didn't really resemble a teenager to me in BATB and she's only one year younger than Emma Stone and I'd much rather have Emma Stone over Emma Watson lol.

And at least she doesn't look as old and haggard as Lindsay Lohan who's barely older than her but looks in her 40s. It still makes me laugh that she kept demanding Rob Marshall for the part.

Oh, wow, I didn't know Lindsay Lohan did that!!! That's freaking hilarious!

I thought they were going with a Belle in her 20's in the movie. I mean in Cinderella I thought Ella was supposed to be a little older than 18 and so Belle was a little older than 19.

I always get a hoot from anything Lindsay Lohan does anymore. rotfl

I didn't bother reading the section for the live-action BATB in the updated Making of book so it's possible they did age her up. I can see Emma Watson making that change and it would make the spinster comment that Gaston makes even more effective.

You're more familiar with the background and making of the live-action Cinderella so do you happen to know what her age was in that film? She's 18 in the animated film so I always assumed she would be the same age especially since Lily James can pass off as that age.

I suppose Lily James could pass for 18. The Making Of book is somewhere in my house that I do not know, so I can't get it now to check, but I know it brought up the fact that they needed to make Ella and Kit ages that were not too old to experience first love. I forget if it said they were in their 20's or not. I thought it was just saying they had to pick actors who looked early 20's? I don't remember exactly.

Quote:
Every writing session feels like a master class, Miranda told Billboard at WarnerMedia’s Television Critics Association party Wednesday night (July 24), where he was promoting his new HBO miniseries, His Dark Materials. In fact, he and Menken were Skyping right before the party. Miranda was positively giddy about writing with Menken, though expressed his concern that no one could match the genius of Menken’s former writing partner, lyricist Howard Ashman, who died in 1991. “I will definitely fall short because no one can write like that,” Miranda said modestly, before reciting the lyric “What’s a fire and why does it — what’s the word? — burn?” from Little Mermaid’s “Part of Your World,” and praising Menken for his brilliant simplicity.

That's all right if the book is not on you. Likely they don't mention exact ages anyway. Going by your statement, probably they were in their late teens or early 20's then.
