More News Involving ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Arrived!

Yesterday it was reported that Narcos actor Pedro Pascal was potentially joining The Mandalorian for the lead role which was undoubtedly an exciting prospect but now more casting news has arrived.

It seems that Deadpool actress, Gina Carano, is set to join Pedro Pascal in a lead role in the upcoming live-action series. Of course, this hasn’t been officially announced by Star Wars yet but with The Hollywood Reporter breaking the news it definitely seems legitimate.

Oh, I’m getting more excited for this show by the second. What do you think of this news? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.

What Could’ve Been: Harry Potter and Hermione Granger

I’ve loved the Harry Potter movies since I was four-years-old. As a child, I would watch Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secrets almost every day and my parents took me to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when I was five (which was a bit traumatic considering how scary the movie is but that’s another story.) You could say, I grew up with Harry Potter. But then as elements of the films got older and I was still rather young there was a sizable section of my life where I had stopped watching Harry Potter movies.

But now as an adult, I have watched every Harry Potter film and I’m glad to announce that I finally fully understand what’s going on with the story. But while most decisions J.K Rowling made for this incredibly magical series are 100% brilliant there are some choices she made (particularly one) that I just can’t get my head around.

‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Is More Than a Beautiful Movie

A Wrinkle In Time was one of the most anticipated films early in the year but when the film received terrible reviews it quickly became something I didn’t care to see. But, thanks to Netflix, I decided to watch it yesterday and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.

One thing I knew going into this film was that it is undeniably gorgeous and this was elaborated many times in the course of the movie. But the beauty of the film, surprisingly, wasn’t the main aspect of the film that pulled me in. It was, in fact, the story.

A Wrinkle in Time is a film, at its root, that is about accepting one’s faults and letting those imperfections shine in the most beautiful ways. That concept leads to the movie’s lead character, Storm Reid’s Meg.

Meg is your typical insecure tween girl. She gets bullied at school which makes her feel hateful toward her image in the world. She doesn’t want to give in to the sadness that lives within her because of her father’s disappearance so she shuts everyone else out and treats everyone in a cold manner. She doesn’t allow herself to be the powerful warrior that she can be because she believes she’s not good enough. But during the course of her wild adventure with her adopted younger brother Charles Wallace and her newfound friend Calvin, she learns to love herself and feel confident in the incredible person that she is.
