Dejah Thoris Index
The John Carter of
Mars movie will not
be released until March 2012, so obviously we have not yet seen the
movie, but the trailer HAS been released, and includes several images
of Dejah Thoris, so we've got SOMETHING to go on.
that something indicates that this will be a Disney movie indeed, as
far as Dejah Thoris costumery is concerned. Which is to say, no
nudity, or anything that looks like or suggests nudity.
stills indicate that Dejah will be the kickass fighting princess of
the books, but that she's gonna wear plenty of clothes while she goes
at it. Once scene even has her in a full lengthy neck to shoulder
white Disney Princess gown, a discouraging sight indeed.
another scene she wears a fighting outfit, but it's hardly the stuff
of chicks-in-chainmail-bikinis fanboy dreams. More like big shoulder
pads, big metal bra, heavy metal diapers and so forth.
may be more revealing costumes in other scenes, but I for one will
not be holding my breath expecting it.
Despite the predictably
Disney-esque approach to Dejah Thoris' garb, I hope the Disney film
is a huge success, if only because it would then likely inspire
knockoffs aplenty (especially since the source material is out of
copyright). And some of those knockoffs will surely have a more
by-the-book as it were, inspiration for Dejah Thoris costumery.
