I have been so busy in the last week, but there was no way I was not going to write a post about the latest news on one of my favorite franchises at this point. So they announced a Yuri on Ice!!! movie? I first read the news when a friend and fellow fan of the series shared the news on Facebook. Needless to say once again I had to tame the inner fujoshi late at night so that I was not a squealing mess while family slept.
Now that I have had time to think about it I found myself wondering what kind of story would be good for the movie, as they have not said anything about a potential plot. This got me thinking as a fan of the series what kind of story would I like to see and the more I thought about I kept coming to the same story idea and this is just a thought. What if the movie focused more on Victor? As in what if the movie was a prequel to the series and showed us Victor’s early career in figure skating?
When you really think about it, how much do we really know about the man that is Victor Nikiforov? He is still at this point a mystery to fans. We know nothing about his past outside of the fact he was a skating prodigy that loves to surprise the audience. When you think about it we seem to know more about the past of many of the side characters in the series than we do about Victor and that is almost kind of weird don’t you think? What we as the viewer know about Victor is what Yuri knows about him and that seems to be it.
What kind of family did he come from?
What was his childhood like?
What brought him into the world of skating?
Am I the only one wondering this?
Whatever avenue the movies plot explores I know one thing, the fans will not be disappointed so see more of our favorite figure skating boys, what are your thoughts on the movies announcement and do you have any theories about what the plot might be?
