    Famous names - or newbies in all MOTU roles?

    I'll vote with the middle ground like Peter Jackson did with LOTR - mildly famous actors you may have heard of but who were more cast for their ability to essay the roles than for who they were. Any thoughts?
    "This is a rather shameless promotion"

    "Worked on me!"

    "Me too!"

    Famous names would give the movie clout, but virtual unknowns would give the movie its own distinct feel.

    I agree 100%.

    While the movie will have a better chance at success with famous names in the roles, it will probably also be that much farther from the MOTU we all know & love. Anytime big names get involved in things, there are tons of rewrites, demands, and "brilliant ideas" that are made to the movie at the behest of the studio(they like to get their hands dirty when big names are involved), agents/managers(they want what's "best" for their talent), or the actors themselves(can anyone say huge ego?).

    I think you've gotta go with a little of both.

    Maybe something like Donner's Superman did?

    Having known actors in supporting roles, but somewhat unknown people for couple main characters.

    Or maybe 'just' an unknown as the star. That will give He-Man his 'own' face, whereas more known actors in roles like Man-At-Arms, Teela and Skeletor will give the movie an appeal to the masses.

    What I was thinking. I think they will get an already established personality for Skeletor, at least, and possibly even the Sorceress.

    So, no Courtney Cox?
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Basically in my opinion if the big name attach into the project, they will go on their ways without looking or even looking a little glimpse of the original materials. Even in small name too I don't want any Uwe Boll type of director try to slaughter the whole franchise. Movie is one big machine of promotion to promote the whole franchise as newer fans and old one merge and having fun together.
