What if A Series of Unfortunate Events
was animated? How would you want it,stop-motion,hand-drawn,CGI,Motion-Capture,rotoscoping,or some mixture of any of them?
And who would the voices be?
And would it cover three books (Meaning at least four would need to be made) or 1 (Meaning 13 would be made) or perhaps merge books at first until about the plot of 10 comes up?
And who would do the music?
Personally I'd want it hand-drawn with Violets inventions rotoscoped and background characters at the hotel done in a way like Ralph Bakshi
did the orcs.
The voices could be
as Count Olaf
as Fernald the Hook-Handed guy
Dan Castellaneta as the Bald Man
Natalie Portman as Violet
Scott Meville as Klaus
Zach Tyler Eisen as Quigley Quagmire
Nancy Cartwright as Sunny Baudelaire,Kevin
Meryl Streep as Aunt Joesphine [again]
Harry Shearer as Uncle Monty and Mr. Remora
Frank Welker and Dee Bradley Baker as the animal voices [Baker as the Incredibly Deadly Viper though]
as Vice Principal Nero,Sir
Tara Strong as Justice Strauss,Kit Snicket
Tom Kenny as Duncan Quagmire,and Captain Widdershins
Anne Hathaway as Isadora Quagmire
Jessie Flower as Colette and Carmelita Spats
Hank Azaria as Mr. Poe and Bruce
as Fiona Widdershins and Ms. Bass
Helena Bonham Carter as Esme Squalor
Tom Hanks as Jerome Squalor,Charles,and Hector
Martin Freeman as Jacques Snicket
Ian Mc Kellan
(or Jude Law again) as Lemony Snicket
Don't know about the rest though but I'd like Danny Elfman to score the thing.
And I'd want the first 3 books covers in 1,4-6 in 2,7-9 in three and the rest as individuals maybe a Part I and II for The End. Hopefully it will work out to seven movies just for the irony.
What are your thoughts?
