The Lunar Chronicles Fan Cast (Partial)

The Lunar Chronicles are a scif-fi, fantasy book series written by Marisa Meyer. Meyer has announced that she has signed a deal with a company to make the Lunar Chronicles into a movie, but the studio is currently unknown. YA movie adaptations have been on the decline recently. Hits like The Hunger Games and Twilight made loads of money, but it is unlikely that there will be any new big teen movie fanchises after YA book adaptations like Mortal Engines, and The Darkest Minds flopped. It is still unlikely that the Lunar Chronicles will ever make it to the big screen, and even than not end in total disaster. Here is my dreamcast, it is intentionally totally unreasonable and never going to happen. I personally don’t really care about who plays who in a movie so long as there is no white-washing and all the actors do a good job. Here is totally fantastical cast.

I did not get around to casting everyone! These are the actors and actresses who I have picked out. I hope you enjoy it!


Chloe Bennet

She is a half-Chines half-caucasian woman, just like, Cinder who is known for playing Skye on Agents of SHIELD. Bennet would be great for Cinder because she matches her so well in physque and is a great choice for a minor star to play Cinder.

Honorable Mentions: Shay Mitchell, Seychelle Gabriel,

Prince/Emperor Kai (kaito)Edit

Henry Goulding

He recently stared in 2018’s hit Rom-com Crazy Rich Asains. I think he is a good choice for the dashing Prince Kai, agree?

Honorable Mentions: I am sure there are many but I was having trouble with Kai!

Queen LevanaEdit

Angelina Jolie

This megastar I’m sure could pull off playing Levana flawlessly. She’s been in many films but is currnetly staring in the upcoming films: The One and Only Ivan, Eternals, and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

Honorable Mentions: Cate Blanchett, Charlize Theron, Emilia Clarke, Scarlett Johansson,


Zenedaya Coleman

This new star could be a great Iko. She recently was in the Greatest Showman and the roll of M.J-Spider man's girlfriend- in Spider-Man: Far, From Home.

Honorable Mentions: China AnneMcClaine, Zoe Saldana,


Karen Gillan

First, note that I did not pick Gillan because of her hair (I’m pretty sure she had to shave it anyway to play Nebula in The Infinity Saga.) Gillan is a great actress who can be anything from sadistic and spunky in her preformances. She’d be great for Scarlet’s no-nonsense personalitty.

Honorable Mentions: Holland Roden,


Elle Fanning

Fanning seems like an obivous choice for the upbeat, sweet-faced Cress. Fanning is known for her role as Princess Aurora in Maleficent/Maleficent Mistress of evil live action.

Honorable Mentions: AnnaSophia Robb, Dove Cameron,


Amandla Stenburg

Stenburg is looks so much like Winter I imagine Winter as her. Stenburg is starring the the upcoming film The Hate U Give. Good luck to her!

Honorable Mentions: Zendaya, Yara Shadihidi, Kylie Bunbury,


Aaron Taylor-Johnson

I was having trouble finding somebody to place Jacin. I thought that Taylor- Johnson might work, he played Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultorn.

Honorable Mentions: Cillian Murphy,



Michelle Yeoh

This well-respected star has made a comeback in recent years. She was in Crazy Rich Asians and is now on Star Trek: Discovery. Yeoh is best known for playing a Bond girl and her part in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Honorable Mentions: Lucy Liu, Ming-Na Wen,

Solstice HayleEdit

Priyanka Chopra

This Bollywood actress seems like the perfect fit to play Solstice Hayle if the franchise ever made it into prequels.

Honorable Mentions: Mindy Kaling,

Sybil MiraEdit

Rachel Weisz

She is so gorgeous. I pictured Rachel as sybil from the start.

Honorable Mentions: Emily Blunt, Vanessa Kirby,
