Fear is faith in failure
I think people need to be slightly more realistic - we're not going to get an A-List big name director.
I'm fine with this choice - everyone deserves a chance - maybe MOTU will be his "big movie"
A bit of deja vu though reading all these reports on the net - I'm sure they all did a cut and paste job with all the other news reports about the MOTUC movie going back to 2005, John Woo, 2007-2008 Joel Silver/Jusin Marks, 2009-2010 John Stevenson )
MOTUC WISHLIST - Karg | Lady Slther | Kothos | Staghorn | Sorceress of Serpos Teela | Hunga the Harpy | Kittrina | Dylamug | Hawke | Angast | Zilora | Artilla | Quakke | Robo-Woman | Great Black Wizard | Enchantress | Red Beast | Delora | DC He-Man | DC Skeletor | Lodar | Fang-Or | Mini Comics Tri-Klops | Filmation Jitsu, Frosta & Kobra Khan | Hans Hammer Holder | Granita |
I'm actually okay with this. Peter Jackson made Dead Alive which was horrible in my opinion. Sam Raimi made Evil Dead which while entertaining on a cult following level it's still a poorly made series. My point is that all great directors started off with a steaming pile under his foot. Chu is a huge fan of 80's cartoons and from what I have seen of GIJoe 2 it looks very promising. From what all I have read GIJoe 2 was pushed back due to the utter failure of Battleship. Paramount's decision to convert it to 3D along with wanting more Tatum Channing is what caused the delay. It doesn't have anything to do with Chu's directing from what I have read. I have high hopes he will do a good job with MotU.

If John Chu directs MOTUC,instead of getting pulled back for a year to post convert to 3d, the excuse will be that it is stuck in Sparks, NV!

My Feedback thread!!
Chances are more than half of the posters on that site have zero knowledge of MOTUC as the new He-Man toyline that's been going strong online since 2008. The person who wrote the article however, seems to know his stuff!
If anyone has a Queen Marlena cardback for sale, please let me know. Thanks!!!!

I don't agree with most of the hist cast wish list, but Guy Pierce is usually a safe bet in any role!
I won't get overly excited until something official has been announced. As someone already mentioned, this is deja vu. We've heard this before.
If we do get a movie, though, I think it would be great for the property. All I ask is that the director is respectful to the brand: find good writers, don't make a joke out of the property, hire actors that can act and represent the characters reasonably well (i.e. don't do something stupid like cast Tom Cruise as Man-At-Arms or Nicolas Cage as Skeletor), tell a compelling tale that is honest to the brand does not bite off more than it should (we don't need Skeletor, King Hiss, AND Hordak in the movie, there can be sequels), and for the love of God -- PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE -- do not cast skinny guys in roles meant for muscular men and cover it up with tights. Man-At-Arms is not a 130 pound weakling. Not that there is anything wrong with 130 pound weaklings, mind you.
We could use this as an opportunity to put it out there about MotUClassics. We could go to the talkback sections of the above articles on this movie news to bring up the Classics line.
"Everything comes to he who waits."
Here's my fantasy cast:
He-man/Prince Adam: Unknown.
Man-At-Arms: Jeff Bridges
Teela: Also an unknown (can't think of anyone)
Voice of Orko: Seth Green (since he does him on Robot Chicken)
The Sorceress: Kate Blanchett
Evil-lyn: Lana Parilla (the evil queen/Regina Mills in Once Upon a Time)
Hordak would have a cameo at the end. He would speak and then aim his gun arm at the screen and shoot it to show the credits, like in the opening of She-ra.
On the bright side, this guys choreography must be excellent to do those dance movies and GI Joe. The fight scenes in MOTU should come out looking epic. But the rest of the movie may suffer. Only time will tell. What's important is getting a movie right? I mean Green Lantern flopped, but they got a ton of merchandising and new toys and updates to old ones. If Scott's still in charge of MOTUC at the time, he will do wonders with the added budget he will be getting.
Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.
Evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
I do not see what's a big fuss about the director choice... It's hardly that the director himself will make or brake the movie... Studio input, Mattel, script, producers, budget, EFX company, overall excitement for the project, etc. So many things that might go either splendidly right or terribly wrong... And we never saw how John would do big action movie, but judging by G.I. Joe 2, guy can do action!
Think of it this way: "Prometheus" looked like it would be THE MOVIE to end all SF movies, and ended up as a very disappointing and uninspired movie, despite the fact Ridley Scot directed it or they had the budget or the connection to Alien universe and what not... On the other hand District 9 was praised as one of the best SF movies and was a surprise hit... Go figure... Basically, there are no rules in that business...
I just hope that they'll finally move forward with live action MOTU... Come on, people, do it already!!!
