Labyrinth - Lie to me by secondlina Labyrinth - Lie to me by secondlina
Lie to me, make me feel real

Lie to me, make me feel love

So, this may seem like blasphemy to some fans of the original, but id love to see a remake of the Labyrinth one day. You know, as a high-fantasy musical. A real musical, where everyone sings. And Sarah is twice as badass. And the costumes and puppets are even crazier then before. And the Goblin King is played by an awesome actor closer to Sarahs age group. But Bowie still gets a role somewhere, as a teller of stories-badass-grampa.

Im just saying, the original was cool, and we can make it even cooler.

(Plus, Sarah could be dressed basically the same way and STILL be in fashion)

I really like your art style with this story. They go so well together. Wouldn't it be cool if this world showed up in Namesake?

Unfortunately, copyright laws kinda prevent me from doing that.

Really? I thought maybe you could get away with it as "fair use" or something... but now that I say that I really don't see how. For some reason I thought Labyrinth was based on a book but Wikipedia proved me wrong. Nevermind, then! :)

It is based on a children's book which is also still copyrighted and a very different story. Only the basic plot is the same. I HIGHLY recommend that book as a read though, because it's by Maurice Sendak, who is a god among storytellers. It's called "Outside over there". See link : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outside_…

Actual novelization of the Labyrinth's story are post-movie.

In general, Sendak's book and Labyrinth are heavily inspired by changeling stories and lore (very interesting fairy tales, I recommend you do a google search and enjoy your finds!) which is something I adore. I will most likely use changeling lore in namesake... or in other stories.

Fairy tale encyclopedia out. *laughs*

On the artwork: Awesome.

On the remake idea: Could be awesome if done right. There are so many things that could go wrong, but on the other hand, there are so many things that could go RIGHT. As a musical? Meh. The IDEA sounds strange, but then again, they have Sailor Moon and Black Butler musicals in Japan, and those came out awesome, so it could certainly work. Awesome costuming and puppets-Yes. Don't forget the awesome scenery, though, that'll have to be there, stage or actual film, or what. Bowie guest-starring would be cool, but let's not forget that the actress who played Sarah should get to guest-star too because why not. And they COULD get a guy closer to Sarah's age group to play Jareth, but then if they can't get anyone they may have to bump her age up a bit storywise.

Of course, fans might not like it. Oh no, they will certainly complain until they actually see for themselves what it's like. But of course, you never know. You never know..

Or they could just do an adaption of Return to Labyrinth because why not.
