🏳️⚧️🏳️🌈 Just imagine if all the Roald Dahl book and film series has lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex characters and families.
What's on your mind?
Hello! im glam, a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEE dahl fan! ive read all the books!! :D
Anyways, this is probs my new favorite wiki
(Be aware, the following information is from Wikipedia so take it with a pinch of salt).
According to what I've read, the original ending of the 1990 adaptation of "The Witches" actually was based on the book ending; 'Luke' staying a mouse and he and his Grandmother getting ready to go and hunt down the rest of the witches with Luke been content at his shortened lifespan because he didn't want to be with anyone else. This ending was also apparently filmed and finished as it's said that Roald Dahl did see it and the scene moved him to tears.
However, test audiences weren't happy and so the ending was changed to a happier one where one witch becomes good and changes Luke back into a human - much to Dahl's anger when he saw it.
Question is, if this is indeed true, do you think this scene still exists?
If so (and much like how the 1986 version of Little Shop of Horrors later included its original ending in place of the happy ending), do you think there should be a future DVD/Blu-Ray release with the original ending intact?
Here's the bit where I read about the original ending: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Witches_(1990_film)#Production
A video by HeadphonesUK - an Autistic YouTuber from Brighton as, with the recent release of a new adaptation of The Witches, he's decided to do a full movie retrospective of all the films adapted from Roald Dahl's children's stories.
If you're interested, HeadphonesUK also has done two other Roald Dahl related videos in the past; the first been his "Top 10 Roald Dahl Books" and the second been an "Old vs. New" of the Cosgrove Hall and Steven Spielberg adaptations of "The BFG".
Be sure to check those out on his channel if you're interested.
And now, onto his retrospective:

Has everybody got dreams in your lifetime? I think I can tell you mine. I was dwelling in Willy Wonka's newest factory where it was producing great stuff with strange machines. I also remember that Violet Beauregarde in this dream wasn't the only blueberry girl. From the visual name detector, I saw two more blueberry girls whose names I didn't remember about to collide. And in the impact, they bursted into blueberry juice and Violet came with an idea to make blueberry lemonade. She was with both her parents as part of the crowd in the court and the judge explained that the blueberry lemonade was a really good idea. Of course, I've been thinking that same factory was making other kinds of blueberry treats.
