By now, nine years into our relationship (for some of you), many of you have figured out that we love Annie. When I was a kid, I had an Annie wig, and I played Annie all the time with my friends — always making myself Annie and them every other role, at which point I proceeded to cut any musical number that didn’t involve Annie. I was a dictator-director. (But a benevolent one — occasionally I would let one of them do “Maybe” under the auspices of being my understudy in need of rehearsal time.)(Yeah, I was probably a jerk.)

So, here are some shots of the latest remake, starring Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx and Rose Byrne. It’s just bits and pieces so far, but let’s see how it looks.
