      Dakota looks NOTHING like Ana. Ana is this young, inexperienced, petite young lady with big eyes and is pretty, but Dakota looks the complete opposite! How could they have picked her? I don’t understand. Putting favorites or ideal actors aside, she still doesn’t fit the part. I at least wanted the actors to have the physical characteristics if my favs didn’t happen to be chosen and I think most everyone else had the same thought. A lot of people are upset over this, and I imagine it would be best for them to just pull the plug on the film.
