Wings (movie)

So I finished Wings (Pike) last night. And I was thinking about the upcoming movie that will star Miley Cyrus as Laurel, the girl who suddenly sprouts a flower about of her back and learns she is a fairy. I won't go into how inaccurate the title Wings is for that book now, but, sufficient to say, it is.
Anyway, I like Miley Cyrus and I think she is very pretty, but she is so not right for Laurel.  Laurel is suppose to be slight and ethereal looking, and Miley is not any of those things.  That's the thing about Disney girls, they are always very pretty but in a relateable way.  They have to be so the tween girls will love them and assume they are approachable and just like them.  But Laurel isn't pretty in that way.  She is fashion model pretty.  So I was thinking Taylor Momsen for Laurel, but she is too edgy.  And then last night before I went to sleep I thought that Taylor Swift would be perfect.  She is so beautiful that she has always kind of freak me out.  She just looks Laurel.  I know my opinion doesn't mean much and that Miley is confirmed for the movie.  But I doubt I'll go see the movie.  I mean, I doubt I would have gone anyway given my opinion that the book is eh so no real loss there.
So what do you think?

  1. Is that Taylor with Miley? I don't know who Taylor Swift is, so I'm just guessing. If so, that certainly does look a lot more like Laurel.

  2. Yes, Miley on the right, Taylor on the left

  3. She certainly looks anorexic enough to be Laurel. Not that I think it's a particularly great thing for someone that thin to play a character young girls will look up to...
