Taika Waititi seems like a douchebag, but I really enjoyed Our Flag Means Death. Maybe this will also be good!

Oh no the cast isn’t all white males!

Let the woke accusations begin!!! 🤡🤡🤡

My sentiment exactly, r1. I'll miss Rhys Darby, though.

Gilliam actually bitched about the dwarves getting replaced with regular actors.

[quote]In an interview for the website The Playlist from June 2023, Terry Giliam criticized the show for its "shortage of dwarves" whereas he took pride that on Time Bandits (1981), short actors who usually were hidden inside costumes or relegated to small parts "were out and they were now action heroes." Gilliam claims that he's "very disconnected" from the production after he lost control of the film's rights when the production company Handmade Films was sold to other companies.

He was cancelled in 2021 when he said he identified as a BLT – black lesbian in transition. So he's very much like one of our anti-woke trolls here on DL, endlessly bitching about inclusion.

R4, I think that's the term for a group of dwarves. A shortage.

It looks like a show for children, though.

Our Flag Means Death also kinda looked like a kiddie show from the trailer, maybe the same will be the case here.

I'm just excited to see some historical places. Babylon at 1:23 in particular looks pretty neat.

I've liked everything Clement has been involved with.

I'll watch the original movie, thanks. Lisa Kudrow? Bleh.

R2 the tard woke emoji troll.

R2 is correct.

Defacto at r 12, what are you going to do, sue me for definition of character?

Perhaps you don’t remember the total fucking freakout when Star Wars gamergate douches found out that a stormtrooper would be black? That a heroic star would be female? It’s the same exhausting litany every time. MONGO WANT ONLY WHITE MALES IN MOVIE.

I'm sorry but that's pretty funny.

Lisa Kudrow is doing Valerie Cherish in Time Bandits.
