Great. I don't think there should be a live-action movie in the first place, white actors or not. But now that there is one, I don't see the point in trying to force them to cast Asians in ethnically ambiguous roles, for the very fact that the Asian actors would be cast for their Asianness rather than necessarily any acting ability (which is not to say the actors they have cast are any good either, lol jesse mccartney, but rather that casting Asian actors would only perpetuate the orientalist fantasy already at play). Both sides are problematic, and I really wish they hadn't chosen to make the movie live-action.
