    ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)

    I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.

    I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!

    this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.

    I CAN’T WAIT

    So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway.  Ask box is open, slam away.

    When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people.  By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.

    Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it.  A BLACK orphan?!  Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.

    Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
