Is it in 3D?. I always believed period piece movies should be in 3D.
Also, where's The Flash promised 3D screenings.
Why does every single movie from the early 90s to mid 2000s need a remake.
I'm conflicted. Film looks REALLY well made. But history has shown original film to be yet another hit piece on black men. Didn't notice as a child, but as I got older my eyes have been opened. Love the cast tho
How tf will this movie ever work in such an entitled and sensitive generation
All I know is that Mr better still go fed in this movie. Don't water him down.
Here for the casting and picture. Just don’t know if this was needed.
Some things are better left untouched.
The fact some people thought this was the little mermaid..
Another one ! Jesus they love beating a dead horse. My only question is if africa is so great then why dont they go there move there go back there ??????? Anything….. Jesus enough already nobody cares anymore.we all have problems…. Got people on here already a runnin there mouths oh before you start this aint same movie,,, nobody cares america has its on problems were not concerned about africa. Trust me
I can't wait to see this I love me some Fantasia❤❤
black people making films with black people for the black people.
Looks terrible. I'll stick with the original.
Im not feeling it, i want movies of us in space fighting H.P lovecraft aliens or a mythological movie base on africa lore/history. Not a remake or Broadway of a 80s movie. Tired of seeing us as slaves or stereotypes.
Liberal blacks, love making these slave movies about Black people being treated like second-class citizens. Disgusting.
The way my heart jumped when I seen fantasia . Man I love her so much
I still remember Fantasia singing I’m Here at the Tonys back in the early 2000s. She was incredible then…it’s gonna be next level now.
kevin samuel turning in his grave
Why didn’t they just name it something else
Please please for the love of God no!!! The movie already exists you money hungry bastards!!!!
