I actually just looked this up and found out some interesting things.
Young MacGuffin speaks in a North East Doric dialect which obviously is hard to understand. Originally he was going to just speak gibberish but his voice actor, Kevin McKidd, suggested he try a few lines in Doric and Pixar loved it and kept it. Found a couple translations too, but only one of them applies to this gif set and that’s the third one after Merida gave her speech about letting them choose who they marry:
“It’s just not fair making us fight for the hand of a girl who doesn’t want anything to do with it. You know?”
this just in: white actress offered the chance of a lifetime to whitewash a japanese character in live-action adaption of hit anime that will also be subsequently whitewashed for our tender american minds
How fucking hard is it to find a fucking Japanese actress? Are you fucking joking?
psst, movie ppl…. Rinko Kikuchi…
that is all.
YES PLEASE YES PLEASE YES PLEASE like why whitewash when we can have an amazing actress who is actually the race of the character play that character?
