edit:after reading the "American Death Note Movie Confirmed" I decided to make this thread. I find that hollywood are remaking a lot of asian movies,anime and stealing roles that are supposely "asians".

Let me hear your opinions

My personal opinions

of course hollywood is racist.
how many asian actors and actresses make it big in the US?
hardly any.
And if they do make it big, what roles do they play?
The smart person or some martial arts role.

Yeah, and this making goku white, thats annoying. if the character is asain, get an asian actor to play them.
but yeah, what can you expect?

i so agree if its asian get american ones because well the characters are designed
with their features so going otherwise is rediculous its like getting a white girl to play frida kaloh

This happens a lot white people playing originally black characters and so on, i don't think it's racist, I don't believe they have a strong prejudice or hatred towards Asians or whomever, I think that's the wrong term, it;s annoying but not racist. It could be there are not enough good actors of that race to choose from

yeah, and stephen chow is the main producer of it, the guy in shaolin soccer and kung fu hustle. bet asian will discriminate fellow asian? nah, i don't think so. and there are still a lot of asians there, i guessed yamcha wil be portrayed by a japanese star.

anyway, have you watched its full trailer? do you think its gonna be a hit? i mean... there's a lot of difference from the original anime...like piccolo is white instead of green..

Goku is an alien but that doesn't take away fact that he was brought up by asian culture.The clothes,symbols,food and style are all asian.Why the hell is he even going to an american school?
