1. "RE: lin-manuel doing music" In response to Reply # 0
they need to chill on hiring LMM on doing music... or at least space him out for several years at a time.
his music obviously has a certain sound to it that is way too familiar and though he is crazy talented at his sound and his lane...his music bag aint diverse enough to come up with a wider array of sounds and melodies and what not
don't get me wrong, he's good but his stuff is too damn familiar and takes away from the originality of different movies.
i keep hearing hamilton shit when i watch the movies he does music in.

i feel like he actually tried his best to sound different and he did ok for a good chunk of the movie but then in the third act he had to bring in his damn rappity rap shit and that annoyed tf out of me. i don't want to actively think of lin manuel when i watch a damn disney movie.

I'm sure they changed more than enough to make this an original work, but my guess is the development of this has a directink back to their option for Spell.
Xanth has a lot of weird shit, as do most Piers Anthony books. But he's got some core ideas that would absolutely kill on a quality tv show. Still waiting on HBO, Starz, or Showtime to create a series out of his Incarnations Of Immortality series.
Far as Encanto, I'll catch that this weekend most likely. My wife and daughter loved it, and i'm sure I'll enjoy it too.
