A Forbidden trilogy?

FORBIDDEN PLANET Last week, we told you about James Cameron possibly looking to make the upcoming J. Michael Straczynski scripted FORBIDDEN PLANET remake one of his upcoming flicks. Well, it seems that the updated story of a mission to investigate the disappearance of genius scientists from a distant planet is more ambitious that we might have thought. According to "Latino Review", if all goes well box-office wise, we might just be getting a FORBIDDEN PLANET trilogy. A footnote in the script goes as follows: (Warning! Possible SPOILERS! Read at your own risk!)

Movie One tells the story of the original ship that came to Altair 4.

Movie Two tells the story of the search for the Krell by the captain of the Bellerophon and his crew...as Diana continues to grow into something profoundly other-wordly. The search takes them beyond the limits of known space into other dimensions, passing from what's known into what's not.

Movie Three tells the story of the second ship to arrive at Altair 4 to investigate what happened to the Bellerophon. They discover Morbius and his "daughter," who is desperate to get off the planet and out into the rest of the universe, where her power would nearly be god-like...a fate we are spared when Morbius sacrifices his life to keep her there and eliminate the Krell homeworld once and for all.

Strike back any and all thoughts below.

I always wondered if the there was something odd about the girl in the original, it seems as I'm not the only person who thought more about it.

Nothing Wrong With Trilogies

A story has to have a begining, middle and an end. If the story demands that much detail then fine. But if you have a story like say, the matrix that could of been told in two movies then yeah it kind of sucks.

Shakespeare

The original story of Forbidden Planet is based of Shakespeare's play the Tempest. Morbius's daughter Diana was supposed to represent innocence, that is why all the animals trust her. Only when she loses her "innocence" by being around the male crew of the ship sent to investigate does she get attacked by a tiger.

This "other worldly power" that is being suggested is idiotic. The whole story line behind the Krell was that no matter how intelligent or good hearted you are, there are

This "other worldly power" that is being suggested is idiotic. The whole story line behind the Krell was that no matter how intelligent or good hearted you are, there are always monsters that luck inside. The monsters being things like envy, greed, and hate. That is what destroyed the advanced Krell. Morbius's own monsters from the Id is what kills him. Giving Diana "other worldly powers" would ruin the heart of the original movie.

I vote "Nah" for the Diana plot line. I'm all for jazzing up a fantastic movie, but let's not ruin it.
