10 Things I’m Excited For

There’s always SO MUCH right around the corner and it’s hard to keep track of all the things I’m anticipating. For once I thought I’d collect a few of them in one post and share them with all of you.

#1 Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Wedding

I was a big, big fan of Suits for a while and Meghan’s role was one of my all time favorites in all of television. I’ve drifted away from the show the last few seasons but I’m glad for her. Also, like many Americans, I’m interested in everything that goes on with the Royal Family, even though I live all the way across the pond.

#2 Avengers: Infinity War

You’ve probably seen the trailer by now. I mean, it’s the number one trailer in the world. My first reaction was just absolute awe and even though I was excited before I’m beyond excited now. I don’t even know what to expect and I don’t want to try and predict anything because I just want to experience this momentous event.

#3 Disney’s live action Mulan

I’m so happy with this casting! Liu Yifei sounds like she’s perfect for the role. From what I’ve been reading she’s more than adept at martial arts… so I’m hoping she performs her own stunts. It’s so badass when actors can perform their own stunts.

#4 Kill the Farm Boy

Reasons to be excited for this: 1) the (phenomenal) authors, 2) the comparisons to Discworld and Princess Bride, 3) the genre of comedy-fantasy, 4) the pun on the cover, 5) the cover (and the title), 6) the description as a whole. Please go preorder and support if it sounds good to you as well.

#5 Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Besides watching the original show when I was younger and reading a bit of her comics around the same age, I’m a big fan of witches and witch-related TV shows and movies. Especially the dark ones (except when they’re too dark… a bit of a paradox, eh?). This sounds right up my alley and since I already subscribe to Netflix it’s a match made in heaven.

#6 Teen Titans live action TV Show

The first picture is officially in! And… I somehow completely forgot this was actually happening until now. Brenton Thwaites looks great as Robin (and I’m pleased they went with Robin instead of Nightwing) and I can’t wait to see the rest of the cast. As far as I know this will be airing on DC’s own version of a streaming platform and I’m going to guess that’s going to cost money, so that’s something to consider, but until then I’ll just sit in my excited chair and wait (im)patiently.

#7 Fantastic Beasts & The Crimes of Grindelwald

EEK! Newt my favorite favorite Hufflepuff to ever grace the silver screen! You look great darling keep it up! Okay, honesty hour, I hate Johnny Depp and I hate that he’s in these movies and I hate that I’m going to drop money on a ticket and part of that will go to him, or at the very least it won’t hurt him. So far I’ve managed to stay away from every movie he’s been in recently but I think this may be a deal breaker as I’m far too invested in the Wizarding World. When it gets closer I’ll be scouting for a good charity to donate to and I’ll keep you updated.

#8  Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie

Never in my life would I have thought this would be a thing but I need it now. I love Star Trek. I love Tarantino’s films. I can’t imagine what this one might look like but I’m sure I’ll love it and I think it’s about time we had a big budget R-rated Star Trek film.

#9 Mary and the Witch’s Flower

This is the first film from Studio Ponoc (which I believe is a part of, or related to the glorious Studio Ghibli) and I didn’t realize it was actually a thing until yesterday. It looks as beautiful as all Ghibli films do and while I doubt I’ll manage to catch it in a theatre I look forward to watching it as soon as I can.

#10 A Wrinkle In Time

There are a million reasons to be excited for this movie and these photos are not the least of them. Look at these badass women! Look at them! This movie promises it will deliver a lot and while I put a bunch of trust in Ava Duvernay and Disney I am a tad worried it won’t be as good as I’m dreaming. But the release gets closer with each day and I am eagerly anticipating everything.
