My-picks/choices for a live-action Miraculous Ladybug [2019]

by dewandrop | created - 4 months ago | updated - 3 months ago | Public

I was hesitant to do this one because I was half expecting it to just be a teen-sitcom-cast reunion, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I’ve had to employ creative license here, with certain characters filling in for the roles of multiple characters that aren’t included, and new roles for existing characters. With a plethora of talented actors and actresses, it was difficult to choose, I’ve gone back and forth between some choices multiple times.

As for what type of live-action, initially I was thinking a single movie, but it might work better as an 8-to-10-episode Netflix series.

!! Spoiler Warning: Oh and 'spoiler warning' for those who haven't seen the show !!

Note: Thomas Astruc, the creator of 'Miraculous, Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir' made a live cast on his Twitter and I really like a lot of his picks also
