Woah.... this are they actually going to talk about someone with a disability as being the main character and not a side character with little to no story? Holy cow. They really put a lot of thought into this. I hope it goes well.
Considering people with disabilites are treated as the big elephant in the room; spoken about but never helped, this is an amazing step forward. This movie is going to be very touching.
