There is no telling whether this film will ever get re-released into theaters or even onto DVD. And I know this is just a question of wishful thinking, let alone if it should even be touched. Because I know how many true Disney enthusiasts love the film and would not want to see it replaced or remade.
But if it were to, just as a hypothetical question at the least, to be close to the original and as culturally friendly as possible, what would you like to see done? I haven't put too much thought into it, but it was just a wonder. One thought that came to mind was for a person to play Uncle Remus. I thought of James Pickens, Jr, known for his role as Chief Webber on Grey's Anatomy. Either him or maybe Chi McBride.
Any other thoughts or ideas, or just wishful thinking?
