"Oh, Lumpy's great, he's like Chewbacca, if he wanted to eat your bone marrow."

I just saw it on Youtube and was about to post about it when I saw your post.

Interesting thing, I never got to watch this Christmas Special, for some reason no one ever aired it here.

I vaguely remember being excited for the Christmas Special when it came out, I would have been 8 years old. Even as an 8 year old I recognized the recycled special effects (chiefly the Star Destroyers) but everyone our age was gaga over Star Wars so we probably ate it up. All the weirdness that is so obvious now probably sailed right over my head at the time, but of course, you'd also have to compare the special to TV in general at the time, which was slower paced and aimed at wide demographics since there were only 3 main US networks at the time, not counting PBS.

The Pitch meeting videos still manage to stay fresh (unlike Cinemasins which seems to be really reaching for material these days). I've subscribed to Ryan George's own channel and find it consistently amusing as well.

It's amazing how young Harrison Ford still looks. And willing to chug along in this mess for a few minutes, too!

Maybe the Christmas Special was what soured him so much that he wanted (Han Solo) to die if he was going to be in the next film... ;)

You should probably wait to watch this until seeing the movie, duh.

Spoilers for a musical that has been around for decades now I think...

A movie that translates the musical almost directly to the screen, so...  ::)

I don't know anyone that has actually seen the musical. I would have thought the whole reason they are making a film based on the musical is to reach those that go to movies, but not the theatre. I mean, Cats isn't exactly Romeo and Juliet, where even if you've never seen the play performed, you know more or less what it's about. Actually, it would be indescribably sad if Cats ever did achieve the same status as Shakespeare....

Why does it sound like the most random plot a movie ever had?



And also, is it me or does it look like RDJ's career, post MCU, is pretty much done?

Man, as someone who remembers actually liking the Doolittle stories when I was a kid, I have to wonder why the screenwriter didn't just adapt one of those stories and maybe add some dead wife pathos if he wanted to?

I have to wonder though how pudgy-british RDJ looks in this film, since that was part of Doolittle's visual charm in the illustrations and text. There's even an incongruous moment in (I think it's) the final book, where he has teamed up with two friends, an African and a Red Indian warrior, to protect a South American area from invasion and together the three hold the line in a narrow space with an epic beatdown of the evil invaders -- which is meant to be humorous and whimsical because Dr. Doolittle looks like a kinder and softer version of C. S. Lewis (for example)!

Bagpipe Colon blockage on dragons is a good reason to avoid any movie.
