« on: November 14, 2017, 01:05:58 AM »
wow okay so while watching some poppin bootlegs of musicals on the internet i thought wOW how lit would a watership down musical be??? like singing through the el-ahrairah stories and like,,, cute little songs by the efrafan does about their soul-crushing sadness. i want bigwig to have a duet with hazel or something that just seems like such a sweet little moment and imagine the possibilities of keehar with a sweet comedy song


i mean i understand its already been adapted into a play but it doesnt have a huge emphasis on the music to my knowledge

A really lovely idea, I'd definitely go to theatre for it. I'd also love to hear music songs especially, so many ideas, that could be realized in such a scenario.

The only musical-like I've ever seen was kind of a school adaption if I understood this right: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2M6XgLdAnOo Pretty funny and cool made, tho with influences of Les Miserables, one of my favorite musicals at all. :)

In 2004 a WD fan started writing a script for musical.  It was never finished...
(you will have to expand the four messages if you want to see it)

The video you linked is really interesting though Leo :D

##Anyway, I think a WD musical would be a great idea.  Florapaw makes some interesting song ideas, this has so much potential...I really want this to happen :D :D :D
