Fan Girl Friday

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttttttttttssssssssssss Friday!

 

Time to kick back; drink a cold glass of Diet A&W® and binge-watch Sherlock on Netflix.

 

But, before the chillaxing begins, take a gander at these delightfully dorky treasures I’ve track down from the web!

 

San Diego Comic Con was almost a month ago, but I’m still finding out some awesome things that happened at the convention! Like this!

Lee Pace

Lee Pace totally photobombed sleeping fans that were camped out outside of Hall H! Click the link for more amazing things you may have missed from this year’s SDCC!

 

JJ Abrams is pretty much my favorite director. Not just because of his ability to breathe new life into old franchises, but also because he keeps tweeting/leaking photos from the new Star Wars flick! Check out Han Solo’s new costume!

Harrison Ford

What do you think? It really reminds me of a certain space cowboy

 

And speaking of space, look at this AMAZING space-themed room a dad made for his son! Complete with rocket!

 

This week, the world lost one of the greatest comedians in the history of comedy, Robin Williams. The tributes have been pouring in. They’re all very touching, however I think this one is the best. The cast of Broadyway’s Aladdin paid a musical tribute to him onstage after one of their shows. Take a look:

 

 

In a Movie Theater Far, Far Away…

*Cue the fangirl/fanboy squeals*

The cast has FINALLY been announced for J.J. Abram’s newest installment of the Star Wars saga!

And here they are:

1398790698000-star-wars-episode-7-cast-announce

Look! Even R2D2 is there!

Can’t tell who everyone is? No problem; I’m here to help!

The the original cast members (or as I like to call them: The Jedi Trinity) are BACK! That’s right, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher have all signed on to reprise their roles from the original (and, in this blogger’s opinion, the BEST) 1970’s films! But who are the rest of these young whippersnappers? Glad you asked!

 

Domhnall Gleeson

Neither Dementor nor Storm Trooper scare me.

Neither Dementor nor Storm Trooper scare me.

Dom, AKA Bill Weasley, will be turning in his wand for a lightsaber come December 2015! IMDB doesn’t list his character’s name, but my guess is he is either the spawn of Han and Leia or one of Luke’s littles.

 

Adam Driver

Look out Girls!

Look out Girls!

Best known for his role on HBO’s Girls and Inside Llewyn Davis, its unclear who Driver will be playing as well. Although, he really reminds me of a younger, less crazy-eyed Peter Mayhew. Maybe he’s one of Chewbacca’s pups…?

 

Oscar Isaac

Another Llewyn Davis alum, Isaac hasn’t been in too many projects. I’m hoping this is a good thing. Although Hayden Christensen was a relative unknown when he was in Star Wars and we all know how THAT turned out…

 

Daisy Ridley

MV5BNTI0NTA4Njg1Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTA5Mzc2MTE@__V1_SY317_CR69,0,214,317_AL_

This cute-as-a-button brunette is just about as adorable as her name. But, I feel as though there’s some fierceness behind those baby brown’s. Maybe she’s a little Leia…? Ridley has only has about 6 or 7 acting projects under her belt, but something tells me that Star Wars is going to catapult her to stardom.

 

What do you think about the casting choices? Like them? Don’t like them? Have any guesses as to who they might be playing? Honestly, I think the actors could stink and this movie would still be awesome. Mostly because J.J. Abram’s is driving this Falcon and that guy knows his way around a galaxy! No disrespect to George Lucas, but I’m still a little bitter about the whole “remastering” thing…and I don’t think I’m alone in this:

Fan Girl Friday

Man. Its been a week.

After what happened Monday in Boston, the massive manhunt going on today, the explosion in Texas, and what we Okies are remembering today…It can make you feel really down. I think we could all use some geek-tastic giggles to get us through to the weekend.

First up, is a delicious find from The Little Pink Blog! Its a Harry Potter-inspired cocktail! This blog has many Potter potions that will help you ring in the weekend!

Its happy hour at Hogwarts!

Its happy hour at Hogwarts!

 

Alright, Fan Girls, hold on to your fezzes! Look at one of the press photos just released from the set of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special!

Cannot. Stop. Smiling.

Cannot. Stop. Smiling.

I see many giggles and squeals in my future.

 

I can think of one person that will not likely be smiling…my favorite finicky feline. Check out the latest shirt from my peeps over at Think Geek!

"I hate this shirt."

“I hate this shirt.”

 

Guys. Get ready to have your mind blown.

You know Carson from Downton Abbey? Who am I kidding, of course you do! Well, did you know our favorite butler is married to Professor Umbridge?! Let’s hope she’s nicer to Carson than she was to her students.

"Repeat after me, Countess: 'I must not tell lies'."

“Repeat after me, Countess: ‘I must not tell lies’.”

 

And lastly, did anyone else see Harrison Ford on Jimmy Kimmel? If you didn’t, I have two words for you: You’re welcome.
