George Takei explains Hollywood’s latest racebending of the Japanese cult classic Akira. As you may have known Warner Bros., who brought the rights to Akira wanted, white actors to portray the characters. Fans responded, and the company retreated, only to come back and resume their objective with some ‘changes’ to fit their version. Takei asks this important question, “”Why spend so much money on buying the rights of the film if they are just going to change everything?”

What are your thoughts on yet another Holly-white venture? Then again, what can be said about this? I mean look at Dragonball Evolution and The Last Airbender. See my point?
