Get ready to squeal with delight, fanboys and fangirls! I’ve got movie, book, and fandom news GALORE! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

I belong to many fandoms. But the two that take up the most space in my heart are lightning bolt-shaped and Tardis-shaped. So when I read this article, my little HPWhovian soul could barely take it!

The spin-off to the beloved HP series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them may have finally found their leading man in none other than the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith!

"Do I hear a Crumpled Horn Snorkack?!"

“Do I hear a Crumpled Horn Snorkack?!”

Yep, we could see the fezzed timelord as wizard naturalist Newt Scamander! Fingers crossed!

 

And speaking of the wizarding world, check out what a bunch of BYU students did over there spring break!

“Fill my goblet, put some fire in it!”

 

When I was growing up, Nickelodeon had some AWESOME shows: Rocko’s Modern Life, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and of course, Clarissa Explains it All. I miss those shows. The line-up on Nickelodeon these days is–how do I saw this diplomatically?–crap. I feel so sad that I don’t know what happened to my favorite characters as they grew up because iCarly took their place.

But, thanks to Clarissa creator, Mitchell Kriegman, I can dry my eyes. A new book chronicling the life of Clarissa Darling as she becomes a young adult is about to hit the shelves! The novel, titled Things I Can’t Explain, starts around Clarissa’s 20th birthday and, according to Kriegman, will have our heroine dealing with “new issues that are pretty unexplainable.” The book hits stores this November! EEEEEEEE!!!

 

The Walking Dead season finale is this Sunday! And, from the sound of it, I think we need to keep the hankies handy. The producers of the show have been hinting at “big losses” to the main cast for quite some time now. (*Spoiler Alert*!) Fans of the graphic novel know that our sweet Glenn met his demise not too long ago, and I’m afraid that we will be saying goodbye to Stephen Yeun this weekend.

On the bright side, the spin-off series to TWD finally has a title: Fear The Walking Dead. Not too original, but at least fans will know what to look for in the TV Guide!

 

Excited about any of the movie/TV news? Know any? Tell me in the comments below!

 

Welcome to the 75th Hunger Games!

Its the day we’ve waited for since this time last year, Tributes! Oh yes, its opening day for Catching Fire! *NERD SQUEEEE*!!!

If you haven’t seen the trailer for this, you’ve obviously been living under a rock. It looks AMAZING. I know when beloved books are made into a movie, they sometimes leave out important or fan-loved elements (don’t even get me started on the lack of S.P.E.W. in Harry Potter or the fact that they left out Madge Undersee in the first Hunger Games movie) so I’ve prepared myself for that. However, there are still so many scenes I cannot wait for (and hope they do right).

 

The Arena

When the arena was described in the book, I had a specific idea of what I thought it should look like. And, from what I could see from the trailer, it looks like what I envisioned:

Tick tock.

Tick tock.

 

Finnick

Does this one really need an explanation?

"Sugar cube?"

“Sugar cube?”

 

The Jabberjay Scene

When I read this part in the movie, I seriously got choked up and almost boo-hooed. You know the scene: Katniss is in the arena and thinks she hears her sister, Prim. When she gets to where she believes Prim’s voice is coming from, she only sees Jabberjays. And then craziness ensues.

I think Katniss could use a Xanax.

Finnick carrying Mags

I loved Finnick and Mags’ relationship in the book. Because they were from the same District (and Mag’s sacrifice–spoiler! You find out in Book 3) they have a close bond. I’m looking forward to seeing that on the big screen.

Run, Finnick, run!

Run, Finnick, run!

 

Katniss and Peeta’s Relationship

Katniss kind of makes me mad in the second book. Mostly because she starts to remind me of Bella. BUT, I do like how Peeta and Katniss’s relationship really blossoms and turns into (what the audience knows) is true love (even though Katniss is too stubborn to see it). I just hope that the filmmakers (and actors) get it right!

Representin' District 12.

Representin’ District 12.

 

I’m sure that I’ll love the movie. I will admit, the first time I saw Hunger Games I wasn’t sure how I felt, but the more I watched it, the more I liked it. And…I’m also sure that there will be elements that were in the book left out of the movie. Which, will probably cause a big bout of nerd rage.

Preach.

Preach.

 

But, I guess that’s what we fangirls and boys know we’re getting into when our beloved books, comic books, or graphic novels hit Hollywood. What scenes are you most looking forward to?
