    I'd panic at seeing the last of you-know-who, however; I fear that will be soon

    Nothing for sure, however.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    I mentioned this somewhere, but her appearance at a stage show is a good sign that she's still playing Stephanie. I mean, it would be incredibly easy to find somebody that could play Stephanie for an American stage show, considering all the attention that LazyTown gets over here, but the fact that they still went with Julianna indicates that they haven't given up on her as Stephanie.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    Even when she quits, the show will go on. Maggi's planning on quitting the live role in a couple years also, but there's always new actors, new mediums, new stories. Live shows are being performed all over the world, and most of them don't feature any of the TV show's cast. There's always animation also (and I hope it would look better than Once Upon A Time).

    Let's just all be thankful for the 52 episodes that were produced, and hope for a bright future.
    I seriously need a new sig. Will try Photoshop later.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    I haven't seen any indication that they are replacing Stephanie, so I'm not sure why everyone seems to think that they are. Season 2 is over, that probably just means a few months before some new episodes unless we hear differently.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    I've been thinking about it and as long as Julianna continues acting, I'll be happy. Theres only so much they can do with one idea and some lazytown episodes already seem to be showing a repetitive theme and im not just talking about bing bang.

    Worst case scenario, Julianna stops acting and marries will(cicley)

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    As far as I'm concerned, second season Stephanie is basically a different Stephanie anyway (c'mon, you guys know it's true for all intents and purposes, she looks and sounds and feels completely different).

    So a new Stephanie wouldn't break my heart, but honestly I don't know if this show has much left to say.

    The story formula is pretty rigid, and it's getting closer and closer to becoming boringly stale. If they're not going to radically change the show, I think now would be the perfect place to stop. And if they DO radically change it, it wouldn't really be the same show anymore.

    I'd like to see a proper finale, but I know that's too much to ask.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    We'll have to wait and see what happens. But to be honest, I'd rather see that show end on a high note than drag out into something awful (I'm thinking X-Files here). Most shows have a point where they should end, and there is nothing worse than a TV show that is stumbling along when it should have been ended, like a poor little bird with a broken wing

    What's the term they use - "jumping the shark", when a show goes downhill ?

    I don't think Magnus is ready to stop the Lazytown train just yet. But, if he did, he better make sure that they put together a kickass DVD box set of all the episodes !

    So are you saying that we should kill birds with broken wings so they don't have to suffer?

    Oh no, it's not meant to be an animal rights thread

    It was a metaphor only, to try and depict how pathetic a show is when it runs past it's 'use by' date.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    As soon as I read jumping the shark, I pictured an episode where Sportacus does just that. Kind of as a tongue-in-cheek reference to both Happy Days and the concept.

    That would be really funny, though comical references to shark jumping in serial fiction really should occur before there is any chance of metaphorical shark jumping. Whether we're close to metaphorical shark jumping depends on Magnus, really, if he can come up with fun ideas without anvilicious preaching on the merits/danger of [subject of the ep] too often.


    I don't think that Juli leaving would be a major disaster (it might lose LT some older fans, but actors have been replaced before and the series gone on, and I doubt the kids will really notice), but I do think that Julianna could continue playing the role. Now she's gone through most of puberty, rather like the 'uncanny valley' effect on characters that are close to human but not quite, she might actually regain some plausibility if she's playing a child character as an adult actor instead of as a child actor who grew.
    However, I think the real issue as far as continuing goes is: does Magnus think it's a good idea? The answer for the series is most likely "why would I stop now?", for Julianna, none of us know for sure, but I would say that if he had any control at all over the official Latibaer cartoon art or casting the plays (and I think it's ludicrous to say he wouldn't have), he has no objections to Solla having breasts looking like a woman.

    Re: The end of Lazytown, or current steph?

    Ewww, that makes it sound like puppets are some kind of freak disease, like you could 'catch' being a puppet.

    Having seen Dancing Dreams, I don't see any problems. Julianna is petite, and still looks the part. I wondered if the fact in that episode she spent time next to/dancing with Stefan instead of Magnus was a way of making her appear smaller...

    And let's face it, the Glanni Glaepur stage show Solla was all woman...

    Time to get a new (young) Stephanie into the show?

    Magnus can't be serious. I was reading on the offical LazyTown facebook page, that Julianna may continue to be Stephanie. I think she should left the show a long time ago. There are many cute girls that can be dressed up to be Stephanie.

    I don't even like todays Julianna, she looks just like any college girl. It was disappointing to see the LazyTown extras with the grown up Stephaine. I don't want to judge anyone - but like this they will be running a show with two adults, not the original show with a girl and a superhero.

    Make it clear:
    I want a small CUTE Stephanie back.

    Or what?

    Re: Time to get a new (young) Stephanie into the show?

    Hahaha I am about 100% sure that they haven't mentioned whether or not she will continue anywhere on Facebook.
    Here is my post as to why I think a new actor to play Stephanie needs to be hired ASAP. Hope you guise got your reading glasses on.

    Alright, so, JRM played a great Stephanie. There is no doubt about that. Her shoes will be hard to fill.....scratch that....let's not talk about shoes. Her talent will be hard to find again. But you are right, it is time for a new person. She pulled on an 8 year old well while she was 13. I do have to disagree with you that she should have left long ago. It was a stretch for her while she was 16, but it wasn't too bad. LazyTown Extra pushed it over the edge. However, because of the difference between traditional LazyTown and that, I was able to accept it. I only watched for the Stingy and Robbie parts anyway For the future, I think that it would be very wise to get a new girl. Children probably didn't notice that Stephanie wasn't 8 for awhile, and probably won't notice if there is a new girl (unless she is black or something lol) but they are perceptive enough to know that 8 year olds aren't over 5 feet tall with breasts. I mean, even after watching some Shelby Young or Linda Ásgeirsdóttir material for awhile I totally forget about JRM. I don't know about you guys, but JRM =/= Stephanie. Stephanie = Stephanie. She is only a character. Look how many James Bonds there have been!

    Not to mention that if they don't change, who knows how long it would delay any new production further! Long story short: New Stephanie Required. If they don't, the entire show will be ruined. The girls are an integral part of their boastful 50/50 girl to boy viewer ratio (duh). That ratio is very sensitive. If the girls have nobody to relate to, much of that part of their audience will vanish.

    At the end of the day, I cannot think of a single good arguement to keep JRM around.

    P.S. I will probably have something more to add at some point for this is a topic that I feel very strongly about
    Like Toy Soliders

    Re: Time to get a new (young) Stephanie into the show?

    I agree with you Stingy in a way. (and just to bring it to light/ not to say it isn't understood) I do think she should stay on, as a grown up. She seems to play the role of big sister to Trixy now with the little lessons they had in LT extra. In the vein of sesame street, even though the characters aged, they stayed on the show just the same. I think perhaps it's time for maybe a new young character to help keep the little ones into the show. Steph's liitle sister maybe, or perhaps a cousin? So I agree that JRM shouldn't play the peppy young Stephanie anymore, but rather stay on as another posative role model for future characters of the show. Heck she doesn't even have to be in every episode, but I would hate to see her vannish completely. It would be like Star wars with no Skywalkers.

    I disagree. JRM should leave the show, but could be used to teach the new Stephanie to do the moves (best practice). A nice slim 11 year old girl with brown eyes would be fine. Nobody grew up in LazyTown.
