This is not your mother's Ramona. Watching the trailer for Elizabeth Allen's upcoming Ramona and Beezus made me feel tingly all over. Not in a good way. check out the trailer, below. There’s something hyper-sexualized about Beezus (Disney darling Selena Gomez) that is nothing like what I remember from Beverly Cleary’s books. This leaves a lot of work for Joey King as Ramona. But maybe it's just this clip. They sure have ample time to tweak it--this film isn’t due out till July. Must Disney turn every story into a run-up for heterosexual marriage? Oh wait, of course they must. What was Jane Campion doing?
