I continue to hold out hope that the big reveal ends up being the goat from Muppet Treasure Isalnd, making a long-overdue Ke Huy Quan-style comback.

It’s weird that they’re not saying. A lot of people know who it is and it’s very good casting that nobody would ever think of, but I don’t understand why it’s so hush-hush.

Well who is it then ? Are they relatively famous?

He’s very well known, yes. But it’s “a secret” for some reason.

My dream is that it's Joel Grey doing a voice-over to a CGI or practical puppet Dillamond.

I don’t really even care who voices him, I just really want the Animals to look like animals and not the Island of Dr Moreau rejects we get on stage.

Is there a reason why you can't just say who the actor is on an anonymous internet message board?

Candidly it always seems like a situation where someone wants to seem in the know while also not committing to a name that could prove them wrong when it finally is announced. In other words –having your cake and eating it, too.

One of the biggest flaws of the Broadway production is that they don't cast a real talking goat. I mean, what gives? They have the budget.

Haha

I don’t mind the choice onstage, but I remember some people suggest replicating that similar human/animal hybrid design for the film, which would be a major flaw.

If the brief shot of the lion in the teaser is any indication, Dillamond will be a literal goat instead of a humanoid goat

Don’t really understandthe concept behindthe Fiyero photo, but loving most of what I am seeing here!

Agree! does anyone understand the concept of Fiyero’s? Why is there sand, and what do the mountains in the back mean?

I’d assume the mountains are the Kells, the name given in the novel to the mountain range in the Vinkus/Winkie Country where Kiamo Ko is located.

Whoever it is, and i genuinely don't know who,  he's definitely not the person who filmed the part of Dr Dillamond. The reason you haven't seen him yet, is because they're still doing the visual effects for the character, which was a mix of costume/motion capture. They can't complete all that until they have the guys voice over completed.

The same character actor is also playing Chistery.

How do you know he's not a humanoid lion from the front? lol All of the characters/costumes in that shot are just slightly different from the 1939 version that everyone knows. You recognise them, but they're not the same. Basically they were not paying for licence to be able to copy the costumes. From the back, Bert Lahr's costume was the most realistic, even using real lion hair in it. To make it different for the film, they couldn't go backwards, as it were, and make it look like a costume, the internet would be in uproar, so they made it look more realistic, as that's what it's meant to be. Although they did licence one part of a costume... ;)

By humanoid, I meant standing on two legs, human proportions, etc. As you said, it’s not the look of a human in a costume, it is a realistic-looking (presumably CGI) lion. So the assumption is that, if they’re consistent with the animals, Dillamond would be the same.

You wont see much of the Lion, at least not close up. Dorothy and co. are in the film as much as they are in the stage show,

He’s voicing the character so he’s not physically playing him in the film.

So…it’s Dinklage as Dillamond. Whatever point you think you made, I hope it gives you the serotonin you desired.
