Perrin Aybara was stocky, strong, with thick, curly brown hair, and his eyes were a deep, dark brown. Perrin had wide shoulders and strong arms gained from his hours working as a blacksmith's apprentice.

>>119534316
No. I don’t care though because Egwene is hot. I hate Nynaeve so don’t really care about her casting. Mat is perfect and Rand is Chad. Perrin is the worst but as long as the guy packs on some solid muscle I’ll be fine with it. Who should they cast for Graendal, Aviendha, Min, Lanfear, Aran’gar and Berelain?
>>
>>119534425
As a fan of the books and someone who followed GoT from the start of production/casting, you're being completely disingenuous.

Cersei, Catelyn, Renly, and others didn't fit the look quite as their book counterparts were described but they didn't change their race outright because of social/political climate, inclusion-rider contracts from producers and bigger stars, and "progressive" studios.

But then you know this, and you're just being a leftist faggot.

there are no black people in 99% of Eurocentric fantasy or our actual history. It’s actually racist to keep doing this shit.

I knew they were going to fuck this up. I was expecting Perrin to be blacked at the minimum, (SJWs seem to think that being described with curly hair is dogwhistling for african) but not Egwene AND Nyaneve. Good to see that the "blood of Manetheren" runs strong still, guess they'll just cut that part out entirely. Any faggot who claims this is what they look like in the books needs to get to dilating ASAP

Wheel of Time was unironically one of the least-pozzed works of modern fantasy. Mike Enoch from TRS was a fan of it.

Why do they keep black washing characters and then saying "it doesn't matter, it's only Fantasy."? Obviously it matters to them, since they only want to make characters either Middle-Easter or Black and completely ignore European roots.

Enjoy never heading about the Eye again, or ever finding out what the fuck the Greenman was.

IMO series doesn't really get good until the Asha'man come into it and they go into more detail about channelling. By about book five Rand has turned from a whiny farm boy to a legit anime protagonist, and then by the end of the series he's basically blown OP magical Hitler.

She was much too old, her eyes were the wrong color and her eyebrows were not colored to match her hair. They just got super lazy with everything from the casting to the makeup and costuming for the series and hid it all behind tits and dragons.

well, if they keep their own deepest lore consistent, with Manetheren and their descendants in Two Rivers region being properly isolated from the rest of the continent (which is an actual plot device in the books due to how genetics work for inheriting magic traits), it would mean the rest of the continent should not look like amerimutts.

One of the main strengths of the series is that all the different countries have a really strong ethnic/cultural identity, and the Two Rivers are pretty obviously Basque.

It would make sense to have a black dude play a Murandian or a Ghealdanin, but not someone from the Two Rivers or Andor.

except that the entire town has been essentially segregated from the rest of the continent for thousands of years and the main character a pale redhead has to be able to blend in with the rest of the village. this is a major plot point brought up several times throughout the series. the character doesn't exist in a vacuum.

No, the village they're all from has been largely isolated from the rest of the world for 100 years. Whatever race they are, they should all be the same except for Rand.

the books decribes them as tanned with brown hair. It specifically describes other races as black so they're not black.

They all should have the same ethnicity since Two Rivers(their city) was isolated for more than 1000 years.
There is a part in the book, that the main character is surprised when find out that Two Rivers was part of a nation and even had a Queen.

during Age of Legends they had giant most likely manmade constructs to take care of plants and agriculture for super optimized and flawless crop production, with "Nym" helping with "singing" to plants that somehow was magic/singing/Greenman combo to grow faster plants.
the last surviving of those contructs which may be just be biomechanically/ter'angreal enhanced tractors with their own souls, was guardian to some ancient loot the heroes find by end of book 1

The funniest thing is that if they had just made everyone but rand black, it would have at least made some sense. It'd be retarded, but it'd more or less work out

Stuff like this is a fucking cultural genocide. It's fucking mind boggling that nothing that white people produce from the 20th century will be allowed to remain faithful to the intent of the culture that made it.

Everything will be diluted and robbed of all its soul because of fleeting contemporary pandering.

a true 'human' is a person capable of identifying a course of action that benefits other humans, even at the cost of their own happiness. By comparison, 'animals' (a category in which they include other less evolved humans) will act to support their own personal survival even if the long-term consequences are undesirable

Yeah, I mean, we all knew they would do it.

desu I'm tired of everything fantasy or sci-fi having to be totally multicultural everywhere. I wouldn't care if the cast was all white, or all black, or all asian, but the fact that everything has to be multicultural paradise no matter what is getting tiring.

I appreciate that Game of Thrones was mostly very consistent with castings, since the bl*cks came from a specific island, the brown arab kinda people were from the south, etc. Too bad the prequel seems to be abandoning this

Good. You had how many Seasons I’d GoT with like two black main characters only.

This is the furthest thing from what they should be. There’s no need to diversify the cast between characters like Julien and the wind finders. There’s already more than enough diversity. Not to mention one of the biggest plot points of the series is how isolated Emmonds field is. Rand stand out by having red hair and light eyes. Not everything has to be a melting pot of colors in every little village. Next thing you know, the Aiel will be some kind of fucked up aboriginal, never mind the red hair.

What do you expect from a wet behind the ears director who’s only known for being a contestant on Survivor?

Why didn't they just cast the Sea Folk as blacks Tear as "Latino", and Illian people as Arabs or some other group? Sean hannity could be multi racial as they are depicted in the books. There are several dark skinned characters in the story, many with larger parts. Will Tuon still be black with white slaves? Several Forsaken were dark skinned as well. There really was no need for race swapping other than pandering.

There's one aielwoman with black hair and it was so rare that it's specifically mentioned as something she's proud of because that makes her a unique snowflake among the light haired others.
