The problem with this is that they're gonna be making this film to suit people who were ages 4-8 when the programme first launched. And that lot have all grown up now, so they're gonna want to make it half-way realistic to please a young-adult audience. That's where their helicopter idea comes from I'd say, rather than maybe a CD walkman... Or an MP3 player, - what'd be wrong with that?... Oh yeah; I-Pod would likely sue them.
Dream big and bold and daring.
