Mistborn Dream Movie Cast

Similar to my Wheel of Time Dream Movie Cast, my brother and I decided to do a Mistborn one. This is a combination of both of our efforts. If you need a refresher on what Mistborn is, (or haven’t yet read them) this is the “Mood Trailer” put together by Brandon Sanderson’s team in an attempt to pitch the movie to studios:

* The Terris people are Asian. Throughout the Mistborn series, they are referred to as having a polite/respectful disposition. They are thin-framed and, for the most part, a serious and quiet people. While this can be interpreted to mean many cultures, Sanderson makes it clear in The Alloy of Law (Chapter 9):

  • [Marasi] smiled. “I like the lacy dresses and smelling like flowers. I like living in the city, where I can demand modern conveniences. Do you realize I can send for Terris food at any hour of the night, and have it delivered?”
  • “Incredible.” It actually was. [Wax] hadn’t realized that was possible.

Elendel is obviously the Mistborn version of New York, which makes the reference to “Terris food” be Chinese food. (The only other cultural food that could fit in a sentence like that is “Italian food” and I’m Italian. Believe me, we are far from quiet or unassuming or delicate.) Therefore, that makes the Terris people Asian.
