Actually the racist mentality lies within the concept that only Japanese actors can play roles in live-action adaptations of anime.
This you are offering is the actual concept that is all about race (therefore racist), not Hollywood taking freedom to cast leads no matter what their ethnicity is. They care less about race than you do. For this thread not to get political, this is will be my last comment on the subject.

If there is a Sailor Moon live action film I think it would be based off both the manga, but with well the first English dub names. Plus what about Jennifer Morrison being the director of the film. While Ghost in the Shell flop like everyone said, but if it uses the style of 2017 Power Rangers like if Queen Beryl was a rogue Sailor Guardian that killed her former allies, but was sealed away by Queen Serenity the first Sailor Moon hoping that the descendants of the first Sailor Guardians (Serena, Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina) could stop Beryl if she were to return.

Then it could be titled Sailor Rangers. :lol:

And yet most leads tend to be white?
I think that's a point that can be ignored, since its so prominent. Its stupid to claim reverse racism when asian american/asian actors are being looked over due to not being "international" enough -that's one of the reasons that white washing happens. I may sound blunt but while there are more factors than just race its stupid to flip the racism argument on somebody while ignoring the main issue.

It would still be title Sailor Moon. What do you think if Jennifer Morrison who is well known for her portrayal as Emma Swan direct & produce the live action Sailor Moon?

I really can't see it happening. I don't think SM is main stream enough. If it was I'm pretty sure it would be garbage anyways

And thank god, Ghost in the Shell flopped. ScarJo was a horrible choice.

Is that because of her or in spite of her? :P


I really doubt she was the reason for its flop.
The general american public doesn't identify with asian characters, that's why series and movies with black or latino leads are so much more common than series and movies with asian leads.
If they had cast a Japanese actress instead of Scarlett, the movie's appeal would have been even smaller.

The film really didn't flop it got 169 million dollars vs 110 million dollar budget. Power Rangers got 140 million vs 100 million dollar budget. Most criticism I saw was the plot of the movie.

I'm not familiar w/ her, hence no comment. :)

I love Jennifer, but I don't know how it would turn out. (Maybe if she got the backing from OUAT but a better CGI budget. Lord knows I looooove OUAT but it has several issues.) Why is she being named as a possible producer anyway...?

Well she produce 18 episodes of Glee, and directed 2 films. So she could easily be both director & producer of a live action Sailor Moon film even if Lionsgate & Walt Disney Studios produce the film. Plus what do you think of Bryce Dallas Howard portray Beryl as a corrupted rogue Sailor Guardian?

Both films technically did flop, since neither has made back their marketing budget, and neither made up their basic production budget domestically. Ghost in the Shell tanked domestically, but did okay overseas. Power Rangers did okay here, but tanked overseas.

As for Amy since she is known to have blue hair I think she would have blonde hair with blue highlights.

Well, these days many girls love to dye their hair in blue, so even blue hair could work in a live-action. lol

True thought this would make sense if Amy had blonde hair with blue highlights.
