WHY’D THEY CHANGE THE HIBBBABOBUBIAT TITLE

THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES IS NOT EVEN A GOOD TITLE CHANGE IT BACK WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

wtf kinda person is tharkay anyway

dude speaks english, chinese, whatever variation of nepalese his mom spoke, probably turkish and worst of all durzagh

can you imagine how he learned durzagh. it’s supposed to be real hard 2 learn.

he probably went and sat in a cave with a bunch of feral dragons for months.

just because he was like “hey wouldn’t it be c00l if i could speak durzagh”

ehhh thats going to be problematic. im all for race representation and stuff but you know when you’re casting a movie with budget constraints and deadlines u gotta be practical. some of the werewolves weren’t native american. Seth is asian

well that kind of attitude is what got us into this inaccurate casting mess in the first place thas no excuse imo

since the population of nepal seems to be sort of a mixture of indian and chinese/etc (mind you my entire knowledge about nepalese people comes from googling “nepalese people”, i am open to being corrected) and since i imagine tharkay as being indeed more chinese-lookin than anything else-lookin (since apparently to the untrained eye he does look chinese since every1 calls him a chinaman (though those ppl probs assume any vaguely asian-looking person is chinese so idk)), casting chinese instead of nepalese specifically would be acceptable, but i wouldn’t settle for anything less/different from that

How do u imagine Temeraire sounding?? Like high/low voice or what??

o man that’s a hard question to answer

like i can imagine it in my head pretty well, but it’s hard to describe.

like i imagine it to be pretty low (when he’s fully grown), but at the same time kind of…. sing-song??? flowy??? musical??? it would fluctuate with his emotions a lot, so he could also sometimes pull a high note haha. i think novik describes his voice as ‘sonorous’, so that also. deep but also soft and smooth.

what a load of bullshit but idk

look at some of the actors cast as the werewolves in twilight. they have that smooth brown nepalese look

don’t want just the nepalese look tho, want an actual nepalese

tharkay is the hardest role to cast

like how do u even find a half-caucasian half-nepalese actor i have no idea

WHAT ABOUT VOICE ACTORS?

THAT IS SUCH A DIFFICULT QUESTION I HAVE NO IDEA

like temeraire’s voice actor would be tHE most important thing

and i have no idea

Rankin is blonde though, i don’t know how good Tom looks as a blonde

he a natural blonde tho….

bendytoots cumberdingle as laurence

OF COURSE how could i have forgotten him

perfect match tbh

and only ABSOLUTELY PERFECT fits (imo of course. i’m very particular about these things) are gonna make it onto my dream cast list which is why it’s so small rn

i have a whole bunch of other ideas but those two are the only ones i’m 100% sure about so far
