Before I get to the topic at hand, I want to talk a little about this project. Even though I've talked about the dinosaur story much more often, this project is my magnum opus, the one I've been developing for years. I've only mentioned it once here, on the "environmental messages" thread I made when I was new to this site. It's very deep, complex, and character driven, and takes influence from films such as The Secret of NIMH, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Prince of Egypt. It deals with heavy themes from interracial adoption to animal abuse in circuses. Everyone I've showed it to, family members and non-family members, real-world friends and deviantART friends, agreed that the idea was very good. I'm not gonna reveal too much about it (if you want to know more, you can message me), but I got the idea because I'm fascinated with Southeast Asian culture, and I thought a Disney or Don Bluth-style film set in Indonesia and Malaysia would be very interesting. Now, onto what concerns me the most about this concept. Okay, so all four of my main characters are animals. They consist of a Komodo dragon, a gibbon, a Malayan tapir, and a tiger. While many people know what the other three are, I'm not sure if a lot of people know what a tapir is. Do you think it's a big cause for concern to have an animal as obscure as a tapir as one of the main characters? I really hope I don't have to change the character's species. Yeah, this issue doesn't sound like a big deal on paper, but I just want to check.
