Re: Halle Bailey lands the lead role in live adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
Or you know, maybe create an original movie with an African American Princess and leave the existing, well-established and well-loved characters alone. Moana was a step in the right direction. Wrinkle in Time was trash. Coco was amazing. You get the picture. It's just gonna be ghostbusters all over again. "You're racist if you say anything negative about it" crap. Had enough of that bullshit over the last 3 years.
This is where I go SJW stuff gone wrong. Miles Morales in Spider-man was done just right but that is the exception to the norm and it worked well because it was a passing of the torch movie, not pretending that Peter Parker never existed at all.
(PS. I also refuse to watch hollywood versions of Pakistani characters and actors so this isn't just about race. It's about how hollywood shows race and usually they get it wrong when they race-swap existing white characters).
