    Na, they’ll just dubb it and everything will look Thai. They’re smart enough to flood the internet with their dubbed versions and english subtitles. Everybody else won’t care. It’ll be called “The Great Thai Empire”. Then we’ll spend thousands of years debating that it’s Khmer and not Thai…just as we do with Muay Thai. We’ll probably be unsuccessful, as we are unsuccessful in convincing everybody else to properly pronounce KhMAI.

    I think this can be prevented if they keep “The Great Khmer Empire” title. However, I believe they will change it to make it more simple for Americans…and rename it to “Great Empire” or simply “Empire”. Americans will be confused with “Khmer” and “Cambodia”….and may confuse it with Thai. Thai is a more simple and familiar word.

    like i said, it depends on what we cling to as a source. one source says this name and another another name, but certain things/events appear to coincide with each other. anyway, i have no source to back what i’m saying. i’m just saying. i would agree with you that Princess Soma was the Naga Princess. here, i’m just stressing that one should keep an open mind to things and not really cling to things much.

    i will reserve further judgment upon my own exposure to the links you or others posted, but based on your questions below of Princess Soma, i don’t know. i assume Jolie will play JayaVaraman’s wife. but, if she is his wife and her name is Princess Soma, then it appears there is a discrepancy in the script, wouldn’t it? as for her Princess Soma’s sister, i have no idea. i assume, they are exercising their poetic license of sort with filming. if this movie is to have credit, then it is vital for a historian on the subject to have a say in the production, wouldn’t you think?

    Here i found this link it expalin it much better

    So A. Jolie will be playing princess soma the first Khmer queen
    and John Cena will be playing King Jayavarmen. So i guess the movies will be in 2 different time period.

    “The story will feature about Great Khmer Empire, with expecting that John Sina will do as great Khmer King, Javavarman VII who built Angkor temple in Angkor period. Hollywood Jolie will do as Soma; first Khmer queen ruled the country.”

    ^Indradevi was Princess Soma’s sister.
    Jayavaraman married Indradevi after his wife passed away.

    If Angelina plays Princess Soma, most likely the story takes place anytime up to her death.
    or maybe it will end before she died.

    .

    But i highly doubt this movie is going to continue to Princess Indradevi’s time after Princess’ Soma’s death (no more Agelina?). It’d be too long.

    .
    Unless however, it’s a very long movie and there’s another big actress playing Indradevi.
    or there’s a part 2.

    .

    anyway, just a thought :D

    i’m not sure about Princeess Soma as Naga Princess, though another version has a Naga Princess as the Original Queen of Cambodia. Our Khmer legend has it where our race is pretty mixed—Indian and Chinese (Preah Neang Liu Yi, an example, where She was Queen of Khmer). i bet they’re the same person, just that depending on where we come from, we call them by different names. btw, was IndraDevi wife of JayaVaraman VII? so, why was Princess Soma mentioned? i think they were from different era.

    Yes IndraDevi is Jayavaramen wife, So who is Princess Soma? that’s the role Angelina Jolie is playing. From my knowledege I thought Princes soma was the Naga princess. Korean actress Song Hye Kyo is playing as Princess Soma sister.[/quote]

    that’s great. i’m very intrigued of the script. this requires much imagination and not to mention one’s immersion into the history and culture of the country and people. it’ll be a magnificent undertaking. i’m so thrill that someone is deciding to do a project on the khmer empire. though i wonder if they take into consideration the magic that is steep within the culture of the country…like the people’s belief in Hinduism and its influence on the people then…very intriguing.

    great info, Kadin!

    once again, it’d be interesting to view the script, to see how they’re shaping the film. but, as a movie buff, if i go into the movie, i’d go for Jolie all the way..i would rather see Jolie as IndraDevi who was very intelligent and Jayavaraman VII’s confidante in matters of states among other things…i can only imagine Princess Soma as the founder of the nation and IndraDevi the one who help expand and shape it.

    I actually agree with you because of his look and persona, but standing at 6 something and weighing 2 something might be too far fetch as a Khmer. Then again I’m both of the above and he would be playing the role of a god king so might work.
