    I read your entry in Black Sci-Fi’s website about Black Super heroes and had to ask your opinion on the recasting of Raising Dion. It seems like I’m bringing the Elephant in the room but it boggles my mind that the original and what’s on Netflix is obviously way different. Then, there was no explanation as to why. I’m talking beyond the shade of the actors.

    • Hi, thanks for your comment and I hope that you enjoyed the piece. Casting choices are way above my pay grade (at least with regards to this project). I do believe I read that the original was filmed multiple years ago (2015), so the original actors (especially the young boy) are older and maybe not as suited to the roles at this point. Now as to the choices for the new cast, I definitely believe that there is space for the conversations that are happening around the choices that were made and I believe in representing the full spectrum of black beauty on screen. I think that thoughtful critique can only help our future productions get better and better.

        Awesome viewpoint and I agree. Didn’t know it was tapped that far back too. I took a look for myself and Dion gave me mini heart attacks lol. Can’t wait to see what they do with the project because so far, I’m hooked.

What do you think?
