I agree live action was a bad idea. That said, I have two reasons for protesting.

One, as long as they're keeping the names and the rest of the universe pseudo-Asian, I don't want them yellowfacing white actors to match. That sets a very bad precedent for future Hollywood adaptations of Asian media. There are a lot of anime adaptations in the pipeline right now that this could effect.

Two, Asian actors have a tough enough time as it is in Hollywood, and we see very little representation in fantasy films and childrens' films. Even though the characters aren't ideal, a lead role is a lead role and that's somebody's paycheck and screentime and possible opportunity for a career in the business going with it. I think that's worth fighting for.

Very much enjoying this conversations. Thanks.
