Happy Friday, all!

I’ve found some squee-worthy finds this week, so let’s jump right in!

A certain movie came out last weekend about a shoe-losin’ Disney princess. We all know she lived happily ever after, but did you know she has mad rap skillz, yo? Check out Sara Michelle Gellar as Cinderella in this epic princess rap battle!

 

Ever since Mockingjay: Part One was released on DVD, I have been ITCHING for trailers/info/pictures for MJP2. And even though this teaser gives NOTHING away, it still gave me chills! I dare you to not get goosebumps!

 

You guys. Remember how movies were made about things from our childhood and most of them were total crap? Well fear no more, children of the 80’s! Someone’s got our back for a MAJOR project about to hit the Henson Company!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to star in and produce a live-action Fraggle Rock movie! Cue the Kermit arm flails! According to Variety, the reason JGL wants to make this movie (which has been in the works for nearly a decade) is because he’s a HUGE Henson fan! Fraggle Rock: “The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock,’” Gordon-Levitt said. “Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood…I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”

 

Today is the first day of spring, and you know what that means: your Facebook newsfeed is about to be blowing up with people doing marathons, 5K’s, and crazy zombie runs! And I’ll be one of them! I just signed up for my first color run and I am so excited! Maybe I need to get me one of these fandom workout shirts to train in…?

NYC Fashion Week is happening and what better way to get in on the fun than by checking out come geek couture! PopSugar has found the best–and geekiest—looks strutting down the runway!

I personally LURVE the “Mystic” gown and the “Regina” from Once Upon a Time!

 

Big news, Whovians! The moment we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! Well, sort of. The PopVinyl figurines of our favorite Doctor(s), companions, and villains is about to hit the shelves!

You can pre-order yours now in the US or UK! I. CANNOT. WAIT.

 

Another sweet treat for those that travel in the Whoverse, An a-dork-able Etsy shop is selling Doctor Who cookie cutters! Look at all of the cute shapes!

There’s even a “Doctor Whooves” from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!

 

Looking for a great gift for the person who has everything? Then look no further than the Sharper Image! Send in a photo of your loved one and they’ll create a look-alike bobble head!

I’m seriously considering doing this for my brother-in-law (even though his birthday was yesterday!)

 

Who else is looking forward to Disney’s live action Cinderella, set to hit the big screen March 13th? Well, get ready to have the biggest of nerd squeals, people, because there is one more reason to freak out. Disney confirmed that there will be a—wait for—Frozen animated short before the film!

frozen fever

Its titled Frozen Fever and from the looks of the pictures, I’m assuming the story is about Anna’s birthday (given the big ‘Happy Birthday’ banner and all!) and the hilarity that ensues as the gang gets the celebration going!

 

 

Did you come across any fandom finds this week? Movie news? Dish in the comments below!

 

 

 

Happy fangirling!

It’s Friday, people! By this time next week we’ll all be waking up from our turkey comas and trying to scrape together bail money for that one aunt who punched a man for the last $1.99 DVD at the Black Friday sale. Ah, family.

 

But before you get frantic over family and food, take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy all the geeky goodness I have to share!

 

You guys. Are you sitting down? If not, do it now. Are you sitting? Good. Lego recently announced six new sets coming to stores next year and three of them are from two of our favorite fandoms!

Oh yes, you heard that right! The Big Bang Theory AND Doctor Who will be getting their own Lego sets! I am seriously geeking out over here! I have already posted these bad boys on my Christmas 2015 list on Amazon!

 

Speaking of toys, you know I have a deep love for the girls’ line called GoldieBlox. They encourage young girls to get excited about engineering, physics, and other areas of science. While I sometimes think that their marketing may ruffle a few feathers (shamimg girls for liking princesses is sort of like shaming girls for not liking them, amiright?) I do think that their heart is in the right place by wanting to help the fields of math and science be more than a boys club. Here is their new ad:

What do you think? And if it looks familiar, here’s why.

 

This has been a great week for movie trailers! Especially from Disney! Check out two, all-new trailers from the House of Mouse:

 

 

 

 

And speaking of movies, I saw The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 last night and It. Was. AH-MAY-ZING! Seriously. I think this is the BEST one so far! The acting was great, the effects were so superb I fought back tears multiple times, and the sets totally blew what I had pictured out of the water! Even though I’ve read the book three times, my heart pounded, I covered my eyes, and hoped upon hope that things would work out (even though I knew the ending). Plus, J.Law’s rendition of The Hanging Tree was ON. POINT.

Happy Friday!

I know I can’t be the only one who is super excited about seeing our favorite Frozen characters on Once Upon A Time this fall. Am I right? The show leaked a photo of the snowy sisters on their Facebook page this week! We’ve seen Elsa but now we get to see little sis Anna as well:

 

Think she's looking at Kristoff?

Ah, Friday, you sexy SOB. I’m so glad you’re here again. And I’m even more glad that you’ve brought some squeal-worthy fandom news and goodies to make us all pee our pants with excitement!

Guys, I’ve got movie and television news coming out the wazoo!

The highly-anticipated second-to-last film in The HUnger Games trilogy opens later this year! And we FINALLY have a first look at the film (other than the teaser at the end of Catching Fire). Check out Julianne Moore as President Coin:

Of all the casting decisions for THG, I am MOST happy with this choice. When I read about President Coin, the person I envisioned was very, very similar to Moore’s representation. Why do you think? Like it? Hate it? Wish someone else was cast? You can get more Mockingjay news here!

 

Fairy tales are getting a lot more screen time here lately: ABC’s Once Upon a Time, NBC’s Grimm, and the feature film about Princess Aurora’s nemesis–Malificent–will be hitting the big screen May 30thNow we can add another film to the list–Cinderella. Kenneth Branagh (AKA, Professor Lockhart), director of Thor and Iron Man 2, is doing a live-action retelling of Cinderella! And the teaser trailer hit the web this week, making us Disney-Princess-lovin’-chicks squeal with delight! Check it out!

 

The CW is really trying hard to cash in on the super hero phenomenon. They’ve already got Arrow, they used to have Smallville, and coming this fall: The Flash. Take a look at the trailer for the show!

 

Star Wars Day was a few weeks ago, but its never too late to share some Jedi-inspired duds! Check out this awesome Star Wars themed wedding! Complete with light saber grooms cake! Click the link for more!
