Awhile back, it was brought to my attention that a Candy Land movie is being made. Now, I was already aware of the Battleship movie currently in the works (which I am not at all happy about), but this was still pretty shocking news for me. I mean, what could possibly be done to make Candy Land into a movie? It’s a board game. About candy. Enough said. Still, after giving the idea some time to sink in, I calmed down. After all, I thought, it’ll just be a harmless little movie aimed at small children. Sure, it’ll probably suck, but who cares? It’s not like they expect us to take it seriously or anything, right?
A few days ago, EW released a statement from Candy Land screenwriters Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger which read:
“We envision it as Lord of the Rings, but set in a world of candy.”
Lord of the Rings. With candy. Damn these people. Damn them all to hell.
Anyway, I couldn’t really visualize what Lord of the Rings in a world of candy would look like, so I decided use my incredible Photoshop skills to create some pictures to help me out. The results are not at all encouraging.
