Speedy Gonzalez Live Action CG Feature Film is Moving Fast

You know there is going to be a slew of puns based on the recent news that Warner Brothers is going to fast track the Speedy Gonzalez Live action/CG feature film.

I mean, he is The Fastest Mouse in all of Mexico, so is there any other way to make this movie?

Cinematical says:

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Brothers is making a live-action/CGI family comedy based around the classic Looney Tunes character Speedy Gonzales, with George Lopez providing the voice of the super-sonic Mexi-mouse.

While I am groovy with the idea of Lopez providing the iconic “¡Ándale! ¡Ándale! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba!”. There is already a fair amount of political correctness that frowns upon characters like Speedy for the Mexican depiction. While Speedy is a rapidly moving energetic mouse, all the other mice were often depicted as slow and lazy, many even drunk. Speedy often spent his days saving these slow mice from trouble.

But Speedy is a good role model, and if anyone can toe that line of racial policitcal correctedness, its going to be Lopez, who has made a career riding those stereotypes with comic results.

I grew up with the Looney Toons character, and while I don’t see him (or his amigos) as stereotype racisim, being French I was never offended by Pepe LePew either.

That guy was a hopeless romantic, and just never got a break. I felt his pain.
