Does anyone else think a Once On This Island film adaptation would be spectacular? Of course, if it was done right.



Halle Bailey as Ti Moune would be OUTSTANDING!

I think the only way to make it work would be to cut out a lot of the gods' stuff. The show would look great in realism/semi realism, but the gods sitting around and chatting I think would not translate well to the screen. But I could see a real lush set, a bunch of the music and accompaniment rather than a proper song (Think Spirit, which does that so well, or We Know The Way from Moana) and the gods as more forces of nature than people.

 

OR if you wanted to embrace the silly elements, an animated movie would also work really well I think. Especially more stylized animation.
