ZAPHOD TO HAVE TWO PERMANENT HEADS AFTER ALL!
It´s official: The movie makers have decided to give Zaphod Beeblebrox a permanent second head – the artificial head from the BBC series! This was confirmed last night by Robbie Stamp, executive producer and long-time friend of Douglas Adams, during the Q&A at Popcorn Taxi in Sydney, Australia. “After getting so much negative feedback from old fans we have seen reason”, he explained this unexpected move. “Apparently people like things to stay the way they once were, so we digitally added Mark Wing-Davies´ false head to Sam Rockwell´s shoulder. It wasn´t hard to do and the effect is as good as in the TV series. That should please even die-hard fans!”
ROBBIE STAMP TO MAKE A CAMEO AS WOWBAGGER
This exciting bit of news was revealed last night during Robbie Stamp´s presentation and Q&A at Popcorn Taxi in Sydney, Australia. The executive producer and long-time friend of Douglas Adams revealed that he´d make a short appearance as Wowbagger, an alien with the task to insult the whole population of the galaxy, one by one and in alphabetical order. “Wowbagger has a short scene during the destruction of the earth scene where he´ll appear to insult a Disney executive.”, Robbie Stamp explained. This sequence was apparently added recently after Disney insisted on keeping the rights to a “Hitchhiker´s” ride in Disney World, Orlando, Florida.
