Annie, the comic book character comes alive again in a new remake this Christmas. Little Orphan Annie started out on the pages of the Daily News on August 5, 1924. Now after ninety years, her story is being retold for a new generation on the big screen starring Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie, Jamie Fox as Benjamin Stacks, a billionaire want to be mayor (the new generation Daddy Warbucks) and Cameron Diaz as Miss Hanigan. Annie appeared just before the depression, a bleak time in American history and captivated the heart of millions with her cheerful optimism. From the trailer this version produced by Jay Z and Will Smith looks like a fun ride. You just know everything is going to work out fine when Annie hits the lights. Right about now I could use an upbeat story and some fantastic music. But alas, we will have to wait for Christmas Day to get more than a peek.
