I know its been almost a year since Smallfoot came out in theaters. Ive been semi obsessed with it for the last six months and seen the movie four times. The story, messages and music by the Kirkpatrick brothers would be amazing to see on Broadway. Smallfoot is heartwarming, genial, hilarious, vibrantly animated and surprisingly complex. Anyone into animation like me should see what a gem it is.

This could work, as long as you dropped the James Corden rap to ‘Under Pressure’. I can tolerate Corden in small doses, but the Broadway format allows Craig
to communicate his plight in song without slaughtering one of the greatest tunes ever recorded...

I love James Corden and I especially love when he sings but I agree that was not good, but it also wasn't a parody of the song so much as a poorly written rap sung-spoken to the music.

I found myself loving the movie even though at first I thought it would be a silly kids movie. I kept thinking to myself this music IS SO CATCHY, who wrote it? (Also surprised it was a musical movie.) Of course, it was the Kirkpatricks. It could work but I don't think there's enough content to make it a full stage musical, the padding would kill it. Also when kid's movies are made into kid's musicals, it kills all the joy and awe out of it. It does bring up interesting logistical challenges about how they would stage so many bigfoots vs. smallfoots on stage (stilts??).

P.S. Channing Tatum's voice REALLY surprised me. As a non-Tatum fan, I think I love it and I want more lol.

^ True the Kirkpatrick brothers can write new songs. I’m also thinking of a scene where Migo looks back on his childhood particularly falling for MeeChee.

^^ If you were referring to Wonderful Life, I was picturing more of the reprise Wonderful Questions being the Act One Ending
