You know, I always see Brisby and Justin, but I never see Isabella and Justin.
Why was she left out of the movie? I guess since she played such a minor role, the movie makers didn't think it was worth drawing another character and paying for another voice actor, since she didn't do anything for the plot.
But if so, why did the author even write her into the story in the first place? Ms. Brisby met her before she went to see Nicodemus. The conversation was short and didn't add much to the story.
Isabella did give a brief history. She talked about how they came from NIMH and never wanted to go back. And it showed how the younger rats were growing and studying and spending their time when not working.
Did you think her childhood crush was cute? Is she too young for Justin? Now a rat's life span is different from a humans, they become adults much faster, so a year for a rat wouldn't be as much for a human. But with the injections slowing the aging process, it would take much longer for her to grow up.
Isabella was second generation, right?
Were the rats intelligence and lifespan passed to their offspring? Would Johnathan's children live only half as long or be half as smart, because they had one normal parent?
