ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
if you had your first kiss at 13 that’s cool
if you’ve never kissed anyone and you’re 21 that’s cool too
don’t judge your life and your experiences based on the experiences of others because at the end of the day there are kids on broadway whose lives make yours look like shit no matter when you nerds get your first kiss
You know what’s great? Musicals. You know what’s better? Fucked up musicals.
probably one of the best no’s in the history of musicals

These orchestrations though.
why isn’t there a club that just plays showtunes?
can you imagine if they had one but it was on shuffle of every cast recording and everyone was getting krunk dancing to “my strongest suit” or like any upbeat song and then “a little fall of rain” comes on and we all just fall down and cry with a partner

Prepare to have your mind blown, if you didn’t already know this. The first 8 notes of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” are what make up the main motif in Wicked.
This makes me want to get a twitter again…
