  • Sin tanan
    Sin tanan 7 months ago M&Ms Movie idea: Minis are released and swarm over everything, turning stuff to chocolate. The M&Ms are the only thing that can stop them as they are already chocolate. Act 1 sets up the disaster and let's the characters play off each other. Act 2 has the characters fail, or the swarm of Minis is too much. Act 3 has the characters redeem themselves and the Minis are caged and everything is saved. M&Ms gets a movie. Minis are brought back to market. Lots of celebrities get to offer cameos. Lets workshop it.
