Re: B5 Feature Film to be scriptedTRUE! There will be a feature film going into produ

Have you seen the movie Guardians of the Galaxy?
Was it the human character's or the green alien female, the talking raccon and the plantman that made this a hit?
Avatar likewise. Would that movie have been better by removing the blue aliens and replacing them with human characters.
So, yes, a movie with Minbari, who is not that different from the Trek, "any human with wrinkles on their nose or forehead is an alien" variant that the public is already familiar with, and lots of cool spaceships would do very well as a movie.

Thank you, Jan. You put that so much better than I was about to put it.

Re: B5 Feature Film to be scriptedTRUE! There will be a feature film going into produ

I haven't been around for a while, but I'm glad I checked in this evening. A new B5 film is great news, especially with the level of film making technology available today.

I'd be perfectly OK with new characters and a re-imagined story, but while sitting in that darkened theater I'd be remembering all those amazing people who are no longer with us. Elated and sad at the same time.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Has it really been 20 years?

I just want some cracking good writing. Give me that and I'll excuse most anything else.

We have the #Freebabylon5 movement chugging along nicely - raising the profile of the show (which is great), we have some bright spark releasing the 'Into the Fire' game demo for download (again possibly raising the profile of the show), and we have JMS stating openly he's going to write a movie - a reboot of the series.......

How brilliant is that?

Re: B5 Feature Film to be scriptedTRUE! There will be a feature film going into produ

I'd love to see a new B5 movie but I'm not sure if i'd like to see a reboot. Of course i understand the reasons for it: Some of the main cast died and the rest is older now. But that's the fate of time. I'd really love to see the original cast involved (especially Bruce Boxleitner, Mira Furlan and the actor who played Londo) but not in other roles. I can't imagine an other actor to play Delenn for example. Mira Furlan is Delenn. The characters of the series are attached to the faces we already know, so a change is something i really wouldn't like to see and i hope that they'll solve the problem in a good way for us all. The best would be imo to let the original cast play the roles they had in the series and group new characters around them.

Didn't JMS consider making Delenn a male who turned female after the transition involving the big caterpillar-like pod?

It would be interesting to see who was cast to play that part, if he stuck with that idea.

The idea was for the character of Delenn to be male but played by a female, Mira Furlan. The theory was that females move differently from males which would cause a dissonance with the viewer. Between the electronic correction to the voice not working well and Mira being more than a little unhappy about finding out her character was supposed to be male, that part was dropped.

i'm glad they dropped it. It would have been crazy in a way. I've nothing against experiments but when you see her later changed in this love theme you would always think: "she's male, she's male." So i prefer her being female right from the beginning.

are there already any movie news?

Nothing other than we already know: JMS plans to write it in 2015 and produce it in 2016. He'll invite WB to participate but plans to make it with or without them.
