I’m sitting here wondering.... we all resoundingly are looking for off-season Grinch action. That is settled. Clearly.

But what we’ve been overlooking, is there a summer holiday that Grinch is looking to ruin? Is it literally just a vaca where he gets into something else, or is he looking to rob whoville of their 4th of July celebration or Bastille day or something

I'm not really sure what holidays Whoville has other than Christmas. Whoville is located on a Snowflake an/or a dandelion puff but I am not sure what country those items are located in. Somewhere that has elephants and snow. Elephants typically don't live in cold climates but are allowed to play in the snow at zoos, thought this is the cause of some controversy.(1)

I guess if they have Christmas, they're Christian... but I don't think they're Catholic. The Who's secular treatment of the holiday season screams non practicing Protestant to me. But it doesn't matter because there aren't any big summer Christian religious holidays and I WILL NOT settle for a Springtime movie where the Grinch steals Easter. I would settle for a fall Grinch, even though we technically already got that from "It's Grinch Night" aka "Halloween is Grinch Night".

Perhaps the tables could be turned and we find out the Grinch wants to observe the Pagan Summer Solstice by collecting herbs and greeting the sunrise(2) and the Whos steal his holiday from him by attempting to commercialize it. The Grinch is appalled by their saccharine Summer Solstice cards that cost $4 at the CVS. Cindy Lou, the perpetual voice of reason, would then have to shame the Whos as she always does with her wisdom that is well beyond her young years.

Or the Grinch could just have a vacation because he deserves it. Picture this: the Grinch steals a spa day. He could sneakily peel the cucumber slices off of the eyes of another guest to the spa and lay them over his own eyes. The script writes itself.

I do think Grinch would hate fireworks though, so 4th of July is a solid concept.

The Grinch ruining 4th of July would be a controversial choice in this political climate unfortunately. I could see it being a cernovich or posobiec target. A fire the Grinch sort of thing.

Love the reverse whoville steals his holiday, the spa day, and a (less lewd maybe) version of the Pride ideas.

on the contrary I think it would be a big hit across the board. because ultimately the grinch would come to love the 4th of July.

But why would the Whos be celebrating July 4th? Did Whoville coincidentally achieve independence from the imperial influence of the cloud or dandelion head they were once a colony of on that date?

It wouldn’t be called 4th of July. I was just thinking maybe whoville Independence Day happened to fall in a summer date. And was celebrated with gatherings and fireworks like most others

the grinch ruins the 4th of july, has an epiphany where he comes to love it, then learns more about it, and ruins it again because the grinch may be a lot of things but is certainly not imperialist swine.

What if the Grinch is queer but doesn't enjoy the loud atmosphere of pride events. He steals all supplies for the Whoville Pride parade so that he'll feel comfortable attending, but then he sees that the local LGBTQ community is still partying without their boomboxes and foam machines and rainbow branded swag from local businesses trying to capitalize through performative allyship, so he gives everything back and learns the true meaning of Pride.

On the 4th of Whuly idea: I wonder who the Who's won their Independence from? Is there a tiny England somewhere that was colonizing all the snowflakes and dandelion puffs? Were there Whos already living on the Snowflake when the British Whos arrived? Was the Grinch one of these native Whos? If so he has every right to steal their holiday.

BREAKING NEWS: We have a (partial) cast!

So, assuming the little girl that looks like Cindy Lou is voicing Cindy Lou, I think Rashida is probably Cindy Lou's infamous single mom. Kenan Thompson = Santa Claus?

At any rate, I think we can count on Pharrell singing 'You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch'

Oh what folly! Baseless conjecture! In my haste to relay this news, I spoke without doing proper research and provided you fine people with false information. I have made a mockery of this thread and all things Grinchy with my erroneous, offhanded predictions. If you'll forgive me, I will do my best to provide only honest information and no more fake-news (fake-whos?)

I no longer believe we "can count on" Pharrell doing a version of the 'You're a mean one, (the titular) Mr Grinch' song because it appears Tyler the Creator has already done an interpretation of the song as can be heard in this, the third trailer:



Got some new footage in here. Grinch uses close up slight of hand magic, a skill I don't think he possesses in the previous films. 'Mold Spice' deodorant instead of 'Old Spice', that's funny right? I'm not happy about how much spaghetti the Grinch eats because spaghetti is my least favorite food. Also, not sure I like this new reindeer sidekick, but it seems like he's not in the whole film because it's Max who pulls the sleigh and not the deer, who seems like the more logical choice for that task- poss character death?

I just watched Hotel Transylvania 3.

It was kind of hard to recall all the characters’ arcs from the first two but I got by just knowing that Dracula is a protective father/widow whose life is his business and his daughter. Perhaps to an uncomfortable and lonely degree!

Let’s just leave it at this movie really delivers on the SUMMER IMAGERY. It’s brand is more cruise ship and intrigue than it is beachside cocktails, however it’s just wonderful to see all these monstrous creatures and creepy crawlies on the open water. Many cruise ship related gags await you. And please allow me to say that in 2018 it was very cool to see a Gangnam Style montage complete with Dracula doing that signature dance we all know and love on the ship.

If there’s a takeaway, I guess it would be that it pays off to take some evergreen characters and refresh them with new environments, challenges, and seasons.

Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot... but the Grinch, who lived in Los Angeles, did not.
