Are you ready for more
Ready or not, here it comes.... a Pippi re-do. I wouldn’t call this one a “remake.” For it’s not like it hasn’t had a few go’s at it before. Sure, it’s being “remade” but it’s more of a new adaptation. It seems to me that if a story has had more than one incarnation on screen it no longer qualifies as a flat-out "remake." Assuming we may split (red) hairs.
I know Pippi had been one of Bart and his sister Lage's favorites as kid. It's a little outlandish or ridiculous at times for me (as if flying boys and a magical island were not!) but I can and do appreciate Ms. Lindgren's creation. It will be interesting to see if it makes as much a stir as much as the character's hair.
