We already know that Taylor Swift shook the world when she released her latest album ‘Folkore’. The beautiful stories in each song make you weep tears of joy and bliss. What makes the songs even interesting is that some of them are connected and paint a very particular picture. Well, one fan was so inspired that he came up with a whole movie vision on the song ‘The Last Great American Dynasty’. And it stars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, and Blake Lively!
The story of ‘The Last Great American Dynasty’h
We all know that ‘The Last Great American Dynasty’ was written with a point of view from Rebekah. Rebekah is a real person who was once the house owner of the current home Taylor Swift lives in now. She was also an extraordinary woman who was a music artist as well.
Rebekah was a divorcée who ended up marrying William ‘Bill’ Hale Harkness. Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil Forture, meaning they were very wealthy.
Rebekah rode up on the afternoon train, it was sunny
Her saltbox house on the coast took her mind off St. Louis
Bill was the heir to the Standard Oil name, and money
And the town said “How did a middle class divorcée do it?”
Bill and Rebekah have a grand time together, throwing lavish parties ‘Great Gatsby’ style. However, something else happens:
Their parties were tasteful, if a little loud
The doctor had told him to settle down
It must have been her fault his heart gave outAnd they said “There goes the last great American dynasty”
But Rebekah’s life does not end there for she still has a lot of things to do with her life:
Who knows, if she never showed up what could’ve been
There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
She had a marvelous time ruining everything
In real life, Rebekah ‘ruined everything’ by doing different renovations in their Rhode Island house. The renovations are a bit crazy because she ends up having 21 bathrooms in the house!
While Taylor Swift sings that she ‘filled the pool with champagne’ and ‘dyed the neighbor’s dog key lime green’, the reality is also similar. Rebekah did end up cleaning her entire pool with Dom Perignon wine. She also dyed an animal green. But it was a cat!
So, what is the fan-inspired movie going to be about?
The fan of Taylor Swift and clearly the song has an interesting idea. If ‘The Last Great American Dynasty’ was to be a movie, then Blake Lively would play Rebekah Harness while Ryan Reynolds would play her husband Bill Harkness. Meanwhile, Jesse Tyler Ferguson would be the neighbor!
And look! The neighbor already has a dog that would just look adorable with key lime green dye.
Fortunately, the fast powers of social media brought this fan-made idea to Jesse Tyler Ferguson who shared:
Even Taylor Swift, the queen herself, shared that she absolutely loved the idea:
Taylor Swift used her own lyrics to explain how much she loved the idea!
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds also responded to the vision:
Ryan Reynolds is concerned for Bill’s heart because well, Bill dies from a heart attack. But hey, he doesn’t seem against the idea.
It wasn’t too long before Blake Lively also added her two cents on the idea:
It seems like Blake Lively just needed an excuse to do something crazy with Ryan Reynolds. That is exactly why they are an iconic couple who would be absolutely perfect for the movie ‘The Last Great American Dynasty’.
All three of the actors would probably love to collaborate with Taylor Swift as they all are close friends with her. Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ryan Reynolds even appeared in her music video ‘You Need to Calm Down’.
Plus, an interesting fact about Ryan and Blake is their third child’s name was revealed in Taylor Swift’s song ‘Betty’. Their other children James and Inez were already mentioned in the song so fans speculated that Betty would be the name of their third child. And they were right!
Let’s see if this movie ends up happening. Because let’s face it, every Taylor Swift fan in existence would watch it as soon as it hits!
As we wait, we can listen to this masterpiece again:
