    MOTUC and this movie

    I hope they don't use any of the MOTUC elements that I find distasteful. I couldn't watch a movie that has a Hordak named Hector and a Skeletor that was a product of Keldor/Demo-Man

    Thank you for reading.
    If Jack Bauer was on Lost, everything would have been solved in 24 hours!

    If Jack Bauer was on Heroes, he wouldn't need to save the cheerleader to save the world.

    Movie will borrow from a lot of the canons out there, I think.
    Hopefully they use nothing from the file cards. I really dislike an alarmingly large number of those "real" names.
    And when Mattel makes toys for this thing, hopefully they won't be like the crap 3.75" scale ones put out for The Dark Knight Rises.

    EDIT: ahh, you can tell I'm mostly a GI Joe guy using a term like "file cards." I meant the MOTUC bios on the back of the packaging

    I concur.

    Most of the bios from MOTUC are terrible. I think a lot of the canon they have formulated over the past ten years is pretty bad......but thats just me.

    I guess it will depend on Mattels input on the film

    I can just see acid in the face Skeletor singing Andrew Loyd Webber.

    Yeah, I'm not fond of the cardbacks for the most part either. The real names by and large are awful and the story relies far too much on time-travel and other sticky weirdness. If it came across my desk at work it would be covered in metaphorical red ink and sent back for rewrite. I mostly ignore the profile cards unless it's the rare occasion where something fun pops up. I really hope they don't make it into the movie story and are just being used to secure and hold name copyrights for unproduced characters, places and such. For Example: IMO Evelyn Powers would have been fine as a name for astronaut Lyn, but as she was not a fellow astronaut with Marlena outside the series pitch and the inaccurate bible (that still calls Orko "Gorpo")-- it never should have been seen again unless they made astronaut Lyn.

    I know it takes time.

    I spent alot of time thinking through this stuff before I ever put a pen to paper for Masters.

    (anyone that tries to bash out a script in 2 weeks is going to get it wrong)

    I hope they go in a totally original direction with a few nods to the various cannons. I haven't read anything I would like to see as a Masters movie that hasn't been made yet...and I don't want to see a live action Filmation or MYP episode either......I want something new and preferably good popcorn fodder. Not looking for an Acadamy Award worthy picture honestly......just something fun, entertaining, and action packed. Turn my brain off and enjoy the ride kinda thing. The bios for me aren't cannon...they're just decoration and a jumpstart to the imagination. I ignore a lot of what they say honestly.

    I can't imagine they would use much from the MOTUC bios. The characters are going to need to be simple and not have huge backstories and convoluted origins. I just hope they are smart enough not to isolate the female audience if this movie gets made. I think a lot of studios totally forget that females make or break most movies now.

    The real question is will they make a Heroic Dancing Figure (Step-Up) and a Heroic Singing Figure (Bee-Ber) to coincide with all the cool singing and dance sequences planned for the new MOTU movie.
