WHHAAATTT I thought that too! Especially the beauty and the beast thing, but I would of never thought about Scarlet and Ran! ( I thought the whole "Scarlet and wolf story was the beauty and the beast" thing was just me)
When they described Iko's new body I immediately thought of China Anne McClain. She would be the perfect escort droid. China has the same hyper, girly attitude that Iko has. Even before Iko gets the escort-droid body, Iko could still be the voice of her.
