Miley Cyrus does not a Fairy Wings make




Sometimes, I have to voice my opinion. It just can’t be helped.

I just read this phenomenal book a couple of weeks ago, called Wings, by Aprilynne Pike about a 15 year old girl who is actually a fairy. This is a very simple premise, but yet a very powerful story, because the author put her spin on the tale of fairy and I loved it!

And then this morning I heard the most horrendous news possible! Apparently Disney has decided to snatch up the rights to this soon to be a 4 book series with intention of casting Miley Cyrus as the main character. Are you for real Disney???!!

That book moved me, and this is maybe why I am taking it personal, but Miley Cyrus is no fairy like creature. Sorry, but the girl in the book in the book is a blonde, ethereal, and looks fairy-like. And let’s be honest, just because Miley is Disney’s golden ticket, does not mean she is even remotely perfect for the part. Nothing against the young star, but really?

Now as far as looking at a possible candidate, I can see Dakota Fanning. She has the blonde hair, the delicate features and the most important part, she looks like a 15 year old, whereas Miley looks like she is in her 20’s. I’d even prefer an unknown actress who has the look. Granted Miley can dye her hair, but she still does not have the “look”.

Seriously Disney, please don’t kill the franchise without looking at other options when it comes to casting. Seriously!

Ok that is my rant for the day!

Did you post a review of the book? What's the plot behind it?

Miley didn't look like 15 years old to me.

No I haven't done a review of this book, but I will. It is awesome and I am just really hoping the people making the film actually read the book and realize that she is just completely wrong in looks and voice lol.
