That’s actually a quote from the Edgar Rice Burrough’s John Carter of
Mars Barsoom stories. I won’t cite which one since I think it appears in all eleven novels, at least once.
It’s no secret that Pixar is making a live action film – just about everyone is talking about it these days. Casting began today (I know that casting agents are supposed to be able to find anything, but tusked, four-armed green giants are a little thin on the ground these days. ANYONE fitting that bill has a guaranteed job!)
I’m eagerly anticipating this film, although I am also dreading disappointment. This is, after all an adaptation, not a remake (no original to fall back on), so there is the possibility that it can achieve ‘as good as – but different’ status, even though I wasn’t as thrilled with Wall-E as everyone else seems to be.
I thought it might be a cool idea to take a look at the various incarnations of Barsoom over the years. So, without further ado –
Under the Moons of Mars (the original title for Princess) first appeared in All Story magazine in 1912.
