The movie industry has long had a history of cultural appropriation and has a longstanding tradition of making movies based on popular culture.
But in 2017, the cultural appropriation of a popular movie and the media attention that came with it began to come under scrutiny.
The story of How to Train Your Dragon 2 was a case in point.
The film’s original distributor, Disney, was criticized for its role in the movie’s production and its portrayal of the fictional dragon.
Disney was forced to apologize for the movie after a backlash from fans and critics.
Disney and Paramount Pictures have since apologized to fans who felt misled by the movie.
How to Training Your Dragon is now the highest-grossing movie of all time, making more than $1 billion.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke with filmmaker Chris McKay about the movie, which has received a great deal of attention.
What is your favorite scene in the film?
One of the great things about How to Trade Your Soul is the way that it captures the story of the world we live in.
It’s a very human story.
The first thing that you learn is that we’re all different.
I think the thing that sets this movie apart from so many other movies is how real this world is.
You start to realize that even if you’re from one of these islands, even if there’s a dragon and you’re a warrior, even though you’ve been taught that you’re destined to die at the hands of that dragon, you have a lot of things to learn.
There’s a lot to learn and learn from these people.
How did you come to work on the movie?
I got a call one day from my agent.
He said, “Hey, I’ve got a script for How to Steal a Million Dollars.”
He said it was based on the book of the same name by James Patterson, and it was going to be a $100 million movie.
And I was like, “That’s crazy!”
I had never heard of the book.
I didn’t know anything about it.
So I got on the phone with the director, who told me, “Well, I’m gonna put you in charge of the script.”
So I said, I’ll read it, and I read it and I was blown away by the way it was written.
And it just struck me that he had this amazing insight into the lives of the characters that he was developing.
He just wanted to put me in charge.
What did you think about the reaction?
I was really taken by it.
I was just blown away.
And that was the first time that I was aware of people saying, “No, that’s not what this is about.”
I’m not sure why people would think that, but I think people were just really blown away at the idea of having an African-American lead.
But that’s exactly what happened.
That’s what they were hoping for.
I had no idea about it, but my agent said, “[The movie is] really going to become a cultural icon in this country, because it’s such a beautiful story and it captures a very real human experience.”
What were the biggest challenges in creating this movie?
The biggest challenge was that the movie has such a wide reach.
It has been shown in over 40 countries.
The movie’s not just an African American movie, but a movie about an African man.
So it has to be made by African-Americans and it has got to be about the issues of race.
I remember at a certain point, I was watching a documentary on Oprah Winfrey, and she was talking about how Oprah was so proud of her success because she had African-sounding names.
And she said, So when we were writing the movie about the dragon, she said the first thing she did was read through the script and said, Oh, you know, we’ve got this whole scene that’s African-centric, and we’re going to make that a very specific story.
That was very much my intention.
The other thing was, I had so much fun writing this movie.
I just love working on it.
How were you surprised that people started to care?
I think it’s the fact that people care.
I don’t think I had any idea that people would start to care.
And then when it became a big deal, I just had a huge, huge reaction to it.
What was your favorite part of the film to work with?
The best part of it was the fact we shot it in two days.
We had two weeks to shoot the whole thing.
And the actors just went nuts.
They just loved it.
It was like a film that we had to make.
I mean, I don of course had to get everything done in two weeks.
I would’ve been like, You know, I can’t go out there and do all the makeup.
I can do makeup and I can get into the costume, but you know what, it’s not like
