Revnak:

I don't really see how it would be that important that she be in her early teens. I suppose the puberty metaphor is lost, but late teens is still a major transition point in life that the story can be about and it works better if the movie is going to mostly be made for nostalgic adults rather than actual teens.

Edit: note, I still consider her being in Highschool to be pretty non-negotiable.

I'd say it's precisely because it's made for nostalgic adults that it's important to keep it close to the thing they're being nostalgic about.

Dunno. I never got into Sailor Moon (or the other shows) growing up so I don't really have that strong feelings about the idea. I think it would be nice to see a more female oriented animation adaptation, but the recent news about the upcoming Jem movie were kinda disappointing and I can kinda see Sailor Moon going the same way. "They are a group of girls auditioning for American Idol! Send us your audition tapes on youtube!"...

Maybe it's a pregnancy thing? Her features seem softer post having kids.

gmaverick019:
OT: I'm surprised she actually knows what gundam wing and sailor moon even is, she didn't quite seem the type to know what those are, but hey, cool.

I watched some of her interviews a while ago and she seemed to grow up reading comic books (she mentioned X-men and Gen 13). I can kinda see a kid digging comic books also liking anime.

I honestly wouldn't go see it in theater, but if enough people wanted it I don't see why not.

Don't we have some members on this forum with sailor moon characters as their avatar?...I swore I've seen a couple around.

They were both on Toonami in the late nineties and early oughts. Toonami was huge back then, at least where I was. It was big enough to eventually get 2 spinoffs anyway, so I wouldn't be surprised if she watched them on that. Everyone I knew ran home to watch Toonami, switched over to Kids!WB to watch Pokemon, then switched back to Toonami.

oh I whole heartily agree toonami was huge, that was my shit growing up. However, any girl who was overly feminine and could NOT care less about cartoons or any of those slightly geekier things did not watch toonami and actively called it stupid in my area, so it was mostly my close group of friends that I'd splurge over it about, where we'd sprint the 2 miles home from school to make sure we didn't miss the 8th episode of them powering up the spirit bomb in DBZ lol

Keep this woman away from the things I like. She can't act for [Insert Expletive Here].

I've only seen her in transformers and that one horrible jennifer movie or whatever (I've basically purged it from my mind) so only had exposure from that. Fair correlation, didn't realize she was a comic book fan. I think she is a bit old to be portraying a 14 year old but I think she could fit another character or if they changed the ages I suppose.

Fine, I'll say it. A lot of those nostalgic adults are nostalgic about the boners they got. Making her a senior is a better choice, and considering that major Hollywood pictures almost never get made about girls of that age anyway, it just isn't happening. Will it hurt the message? Maybe. Will it make it so that we have no movies for 14 year-old girls? No, it just means we won't have any movies about teenage girls, and no coming of age movies directed towards girls (which is probably the most significant loss). It can still hit all the points that the original did, and it can do that without having to address the obviously uncomfortable issue of a bunch of 20 and 30 year old guys really feeling nostalgic for a show about 14 year-olds in short skirts.

If this wasn't going to partly be made for the male audience, then yeah, I'd find the idea of having them be 14 to be fine, but it will be made with that male audience in mind, because let's face it, Hollywood lives off of the nostalgia of 20 and 30 year-old dudes.

It would be nice if Hollywood did make some movies about that highly significant transition point in a girl's life, but it just isn't going to be Sailor Moon.

What the article doesn't mention is in that live action remake she wants to do the voice of the CGI Luna.

Seriously how could you make Sailor Moon into a live action that would be marketable without completely changing into something its not? How are they gonna make a show that is very much a shonen-lite romance anime into a for the masses gritty action vehicle without losing everything that makes it SM? If its made i imagine it it lookin kinda like Suckerpunch sorry to say and i was a fan even after that little girl showed up grrr.

I'm amazed she even knows what these things are. She always struck me as an air head stuck up anti-nerd. Bet her acting is just as terrible now as it was years ago in the tf movies.

I can't think of anyone in particular who should play the sailor scouts but I think the movie would be better off as a more innocent kids film staring teen actors and not the inevitable grimdark bs hollywood would want to turn it in to.

It needs to maintain the light hearted goofy tone of the original show to really work. We need a new wave of harry-potter ish kids to star in movies like this, the sort that can actually act and not look weirdly too old to be portraying the characters they're portraying.

Kind of the problem with the concept of a lot of live action anime, you can't really do many of them with adult actors as the leads.

Yeah that's why I can't rewatch it now. It makes me feel like a dirty old man.


It just feels creepy to watch a show about a bunch of high school girls running around in short skirts. Even if as an 11 year old I liked it largely for the soap opera plot. And I sometimes wish I could revisit that aspect of it and get all nostalgia-y. At least I can still rewatch Outlaw Star and reminisce about my years as an insufferable weeaboo.

PS- You can't really remove the uniforms from the premise, that's where the "Sailor" in "Sailor Moon" comes from, the Japanese school girl uniform that looks like a Sailor's dress uniform.

(I'm pretty sure Gundam aren't made for the live action screen due to how much they have to cramp in the war politics into mere hours film length!!

Have you seen the last couple of Gundam series? They're pretty much glorified toy-ads now.

OT: Please keep Megan and Hollywood away from the rest of my childhood, it's taken a severe beating already (especially the day I learned of the existence of 'Rule#34') so please don't kill it completely(!).

If the version of Sailor Moon English speaking fans are familiar with is as different from the original as I've been told, is there really an argument to be made for purity?

I used to watch it everyday despite the fact it was terrible (I guess for me it was sort of car-crash TV) and the most confusing part, I found, was the Americanisation. I remember watching the first episode trying to determine whether it was a heavily adapted animé or an American cartoon doing its damnedest to imitate animé.

Also, are there really enough fans for Hollywood to be concerned with offending when they didn't care about Transformers' or DBZ's rabid following?

Gundam Build fighter is still a god damn better series than G-Savior though. (Somehow nobody remember this shitty live action Gundam Movie). Gundam Age was already failure from the time it was planned. GBF was self-aware about what it actaully is, and doesn't become a pretentious show.

Ot:
Just NO.

Ratty:
Well, there's the issue of white washing to worry about.

I'm sorry, I'm still kind of struggling with this: How do you whitewash a tall blue-eyed blonde?

But also the school system depicted in Sailor Moon is extremely Japanese. From the school uniforms (which turn into the school uniform costumes) to worrying about extremely crucial exams. It's so Japanese I'm not sure an Americanized version would even be recognizable as an adaptation.

That's a decent point, but... I don't know, uniforms in schools as a general thing aren't that alien to us. Perhaps it would have to be changed to some degree, but the school aspect never really mattered that much in the show- the main crux of it was just being a teenager. Wanting to be a pop star one day, worrying about weight the next, friends and dates and stuff like that. I don't think taking it away from The East does a whole lot to the concept.

Megan Fox or not I just dont want to see another one of my beloved childhood shows. Yes I liked Sailor Moon but could you picture sailor moon or gundum in the hands of hollywood. thats all I've got to say I couldn't care less about Megan Fox or not but they already screwed up TMNT.

I wasn't defending G-Savior but pointing out that war politics have no part in Gundam anymore.

Maybe I didn't give the latest series enough of a chance but after Gundam Age I had very little patience left for what I saw as a severe downward spiral from entertaining Scifi Animé to 25 minute advert for model kits.

That's a whole other can of worms. Yes Japan does seem to like "exotic" western looks, but does that mean that anime characters who look white to westerners are intended to actually be white? Obviously that's a thorny issue, here's at least one interesting take on it that I've seen. http://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2010/08/30/guest-post-why-do-the-japanese-draw-themselves-as-white/ don't forget girls hair color in the show runs the gamut from green to blue.

I'm far from an authority on school uniforms, but as I mentioned in another post the "Sailor" part of Sailor Moon comes from the Japanese schoolgirl uniform. Which transforms into the hero costume and looks like a Sailor's dress uniform. I don't know if any American schools use such a uniform, but it's certainly less associated with them (or even less "iconic") than it is with Japanese schools. And in any case if it was a girl Megan Fox's age they would be out of such schools anyway. So either they'd wear the uniforms for no reason and look silly, or the name "Sailor Moon" would make no sense.

There is a series of videos for men.......that they enjoy themselves to a specific beat (tis like guitar hero...but with a different name then guitar)...and funnily enough I just watched one yesterday that was sailor moon based lol.

I never thought of sailor moon in a sexualized manner before. But yeah, Megan Fox playing one of the roles should do it.

I think Amanda Seinfield should play Sailor moon though. I don't really know the characters names from that show, but I'm pretty sure the main character was blond (Guess Megan could wear a wig though).

Seriously though, how are they gonna handle the costume changes with live action?

My problem is, good actress or not, Fox is too old for the role. I'm not sure how many non-fans remember/realize this, but they're supposed to be middle-school students. (Usagi is 14 when the series starts.) That's something PGSM (the Japanese live action show) got right: the actresses were generally the proper age. I suppose she could play one of the villains, but I doubt that's what she was talking about.

...however, there is one exception that could potentially help Fox's career and prove to the world she can act (if she really can): Sailor Pluto.

Queen Michael:

They also made it in French, Swedish, Italian, and lots of other languages. It still took place in Tokyo, as far as I know.

They kind of went back and forth on it in America.

In the original Dic dub, they tried to make it take place in America: changing the text to hide Japanese characters and/or paint in English letters, swap car/bus scenes so the driver is on the other side, the character's even had English names (last names, too; Ami Mizuno was changed to Amy Anderson... seriously, those along with all the plot and character changes, the original "dub" is pretty much a completely different show). They didn't throw up their hands and just keep it in Japan until Cloverway did their absolute disaster of a dub of the third season a few years later (one episode takes place on the Tokyo Tower).

I don't actually know much about the worldwide dubs.

Zachary Amaranth:

Hey, Sailor Moon has plenty of guy fans. I'm one of them. And furthermore...

I'm not one of those. I actually cared about the story and characters, seeing bits of myself in all of them.

... That is... well, that's interesting. I guess. But here's the problem: This premise- "your eyes deceive you, we see what we want"- defeats the entire idea of whitewashing.

If somebody's features absolutely don't matter in the depiction of a character, how can there ever be a problem with the race of the person playing them?

I don't know which Scout I could see her as. She doesn't scream "Sailor (insert name here)" for me. Still, if this was done properly, it could be interesting. I guess if push came to shove she could be Venus. She was always the prettiest of the group in terms of in-universe lore. Or maybe Rei, fiery spirit and whatnot. She can't be Moon because she's not perky enough. She can't be Jupiter because she's not tough/big enough, and she doesn't have the cute, smart thing going for her for Mercury. Maybe she could be Neptune, older and more mature.

You keep up with Gundam Unicorn at all?

Also, in all honesty Gundam has always been a glorified 25 minute advert for models/toys, some series are just less obvious than others.

The Swedish dub kept pretty much everything as in the original, except for these details:

1. Usagi's first name was changed to Annie. But Chibi-Usa was still named Chibi-Usa, so her insisting that "My name's really Annie!" didn't make sense since in the original, "Chibi-Usa" was a nickname for "Usagi." [1]

2. Zoisite was dubbed by a woman, almost certainly to remove the homoerotic vibes. (If they'd done that today there would have been an outrage.)

3. Queen Beryl was called Queen Morga, for some reason.

[1] (Funny thing is, my mom didn't name my little sister Usagi like I'd asked her to, but she did like the idea of naming her Annie, so my sister Annie's got the same name as Sailor Moon.)

Because it still should take place in Japan. And sure, you could simply write her as an immigrant, but then it'd change how people in-universe see and treat her a whole lot.

Haven't had a chance to use this in a while:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n5E7feJHw0&list=LLbzf-1GGu5v-5Kjs1-J3Z7g&index=38

Megan Fox's acting abilities aside with the way Hollywood treats source material what we'd get is something catered to people who don't even know the source material and just want empty female characters (Covergirl in G.I. Joe 1 and Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe 2), destruction (Superman causing massive amounts of collateral damage), crude jokes (Decimator's balls), and pretty much everything else added in to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Don't own the clip btw just love laughing with it.

I wouldn't hold my breath for a Sailor Moon movie. First, I was never a Sailor Moon fan. Second, it just doesn't seem to translate well into a movie. Sailor Moon was a very serialized and formulaic show.

Queen Michael:
I'd say no thank you. We don't need more whitewashed Americanized Japanese stuff. The Ring, The Grudge, and so on... Let Asian movies be Asian.

To be fair, Gundam has always been very multicultural. Gundam Wing's pilots are Japanese, American, Arab, Chinese, and European or Russian, no one seems to know what Trowa is. Now, you could argue about the tone, but there's a lot more to say about what makes a good adaption or not. I'd actually be more worried about other aspects (The Gundam pilots are effectively terrorists) and making the fights look good since the battles tended to have many machines getting trashed by the Gundams.

Honestly, I wouldn't expect the adaption to be good. There's too much for them to screw up. Only good adaption I have seen of an anime so far is the Rorouni Kenshin movie.

Mr. Q:
Short answer: No!

Long answer: Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

A lot of us are still hurting from the last time Hollywood failed to do an anime/manga adaptation properly. We called it Dragonball: Evolution. The last thing I wanna see is another property brutalized like that, especially if Megan "I've got the acting range of a 2x4 with a pair of silicon implants nailed to it" Fox is attached to it.

At least Dragon Ball Evolution gave us the Honest Trailer.

One day, I wanna watch the Riff Track for that movie.

Isn't Sailor Moon, by its nature, already Americanised?

Since it's a Japanese manga and a Japanese anime about Japanese people, I'd have to say no to that.

I may be misremembering the show? But I thought the cast it self was represented as a little broader than Japanese? Or even Asian? I mean the main title character is a Blue Eyed Blonde? And was the other blonde the daughter of an Ambassador (for some reason I want to say an American Diplomat, but that may have just been a localized translation?)

Is it just me or does that interview about animated shows with her seem 1000x more interesting than any performance she has ever given in a movie? Does she only know how to play a moron on screen?

Nah, all of them were Japanese. It's just that Japanese people see almost all cartoon characters as Japanese, just like white people see everybody as white.

Marge Simpson is a great example of this. She's got an afro, like black people, and her skin is yellow, but we still see her as white. That's kind of how Japanese people look at Sailor Moon.

Well ,The Japanese already thought about it. (Don't forget they already have a live action serial TV for Sailor Moon)
Go to 2.07 for the live action transformations

I'm just impressed that she actually knows about these shows. It's good to have another famous nerd figure out there.

CriticKitten:
She can't act for beans. She was bad in Transformers, she's gonna be bad in TMNT, and she's been bad in a bunch of other films. All she can do is flash skin and hope that none of the guys notice that fact.

To be fair, her role in Transformers was a terrible one anyway, which she said herself and which caused that big controversy. She was just saying aloud what we all think - that Michael Bay is a terrible director, and her character was nothing more than a sex doll for the camera to pour over. There's only so much you can do to make yourself look like a decent actor with that to work with.

And as a result she keeps getting type-casted.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

I'm not even on the Megan Fox hatetrain, but I object simply on the level of Americanizing my first experience with Anime, and yes, I'm aware that the original DiC dub was a load of crap, don't care. After the last attempt with Dragonball Evolution and that Avatar thing, I think we've proven this sort of thing is a bad idea.

DO NOT WANT.

How so? Are you referring to a joke they had in one episode or something? Or do you mean how the characters can be easily identified as belonging to the dominant group in a country with a dub?

If it's the latter then I'd say that's something that has probably helped the Simpsons become such an international phenomenon. Just like supposedly "looking white" has helped anime gain traction in the west. People like stories about people who look like them. Still, most characters in anime are actually Japanese, as reflected by events in their stories, just as the Simpsons are actually from the USA, as reflected by events in plots for various episodes.

No ma'am. I say to thee on this matter, no. Sailor Moon works well as a monster-of-the-week/slice-of-life show, it's really not set up well for movies. Yes, I know about the movies they DID make, but those were one-off adventures that could just as easily, with some tweaking, be three- or four-part episodes. Further, even if by some act of divine intervention you were given a role in the movie, you definitely wouldn't be given the lead and would be lucky to receive a role as one of the villain's subordinates.

Further, speaking for my own opinion, you aren't all that good of an actress. Pretty, sure, but a talented actress you are not. Further, you have a penchant for picking terrible movies and ridiculous roles in them. I'm aware I shouldn't be talking unless I could do better, but to put it colloquially, "I call 'em as I see 'em."

They made a version where they changed her race? Where and when?

Ratty:

It was dubbed into English after originally being in Japanese.

And Americanised, but that was kind of the point. The problem appears to be that I tried to wrap such a statement in jocularity.

I somehow doubt Fox is talking about doing a version faithful to the Japanese version.

Then again, she's more a geek than people give her credit for, so maybe?

Riverwolf:
My problem is, good actress or not, Fox is too old for the role.

Bah! Back in my day we had thirty year olds playing teenagers all the time! TV was full of balding teen boys and perimenopausal teen women! What's good enough for me is good enough for you! *shakes cane*

I'm not sure how many non-fans remember/realize this, but they're supposed to be middle-school students. (Usagi is 14 when the series starts.)

Weren't they all, and didn't they downplay that?

I thought all or most of them were supposed to be 14 at the beginning and it always made that one line in "One Week" super creepy.

You know the one....

Hey, Sailor Moon has plenty of guy fans. I'm one of them. And furthermore...[/quote]

And there are plenty of Transformers fans who are girls. So?

Revnak:

I'm not one of those. I actually cared about the story and characters, seeing bits of myself in all of them.

It seemed too absurd for me to care about.

Then again, I was too busy balking at people claiming it was a girl power show. Buffy and Sailor Moon, lowering the bar for Girl Power in the 90s by a large margin.

And just as a pre-emptice to anyone reading this, I really don't care if it was totes diff in the original version or the manga. I'm aware things change when they're imported. I grew up on Voltron, Tranzor Z (Mazinger Z) and early Robotech programming in the 80s, and oh hell, even my avatar got an implied sex change in the English dub of TB2. I just don't care because it's not really related to the version we had, the one we were talking about.

...Please dont be Sailor Jupiter

Though it would make sense if they cant get the license to do SailorMoon [which will be up to Takeuchi Naoko ultimately], that instead do some other take on the Magic Girl genre and maybe make it work with 5 super human heroines fighting extra dimensional enemies on earth.
