on the one hand i’d love for there to be a mortal engines movie but on the other hand i can see so many ways that they could fuck it up
if they did the entire series
poc characters being white or being played by white people
hot hester who’s ~not like other girls~
i can definitely see them whitewashing oenone. maybe anna as well if they’re like “she’s half white let’s just cast a white person”
and anchorage would probably be a lot less inuit than it was in the books
Example being The Hunger Games (as much as I hate to admit it…)
Also, something tells me some of the awesome death scenes (that dude falling from Airhaven, Grike spiking the pirates and almost killing Hester, Sweney getting flattened by the giant beer barrel) would totally just get the “off screen” treatment.
Which would totally suck because half th ereason Mortal Engines is awesome is that deaths happen, they happen often, and the book doesn’t make you feel better about it.
Just “oh, yeah, they’re dead-oh look even MORE people are dead.”
How we love it so
i’d say we have no chance of getting the typewriter killing, as much as i want it to happen
