"BILLY ELLIOT" - should they redo the ending with a now-older JAMIE BELL?
 
For those who know the movie (and for those who don't - spoilers AHOY!) we see many years evolve from the time Billy Elliot (Jamie Bell) left home to attend the Academy, then we see him like 8 years later or something, and they have a new actor portraying Billy Elliot.

Now that eight years have really gone by, should that ending be reshot with the REAL Billy Elliot, and throw away the old footage?

I don't think the older Jamie Bell strikes me as a ballerina. They still need the other actor.

No. Really enjoy this movie and it's good the way it is.

Why?

Aside from the time spent on the father/brother getting seated for the performance there was only what, one minute of screen time dedicated to the adult Billy Elliot? And it's a poignant finale at that.

Very good film by the way.

Yes, in fact, I think he should be replaced by a holographic Hayden Christensen

For that matter, they should get back the father/brother (and Michael) and reshoot their scenes, too. :)

Not one frame, no.

Sounds like something Lucas would do.
NO.
