Welcome back to the YA Movie News roundup, where the most exciting movie news isn't young adult, but YA nerds and Star Wars nerds often overlap in delightful ways, so here's your place to gush over that INCREDIBLE trailer.
Let's watch it for the five dozenth time!
Over at BAD, I posted all two hundred of the best screengrabs from the trailer.
Also at BAD, Devin reported from Star Wars Celebration that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy decried the franchise's lack of female representation and promised that's changing.
Furthermore at BAD, Full House is being revived on Netflix as Fuller House. Nostalgia party!
Additionally at BAD, today's Tomorrowland trailer has finally, FINALLY got my attention. Because robots.
Finally at BAD, Sid wrote some wonderful, in-depth analysis of Pretty Little Liars.
Director Joe Wright stated: “As you might expect, the fantastical story of Peter Pan involves very complex effects and I did not want to compromise on quality in finishing the film. This allows me and my team the time to complete the movie and tell the story the way it should be told.”
The book ... centers on the survivors of a deadly plague called the blood fever. Many of the teens that survive have been physically transformed and discover that they've acquired special powers. This secret group of gifted teens is called the Young Elites, and their lives are threatened by a group called the Inquisition Axis, which is seeking to destroy them.
Lu's book focuses a young woman, Adelina Amouteru, who, post-plague, has silver hair and only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. When a secret society that strives to protect the Young Elite finds Adelina, it discovers she has powers like they’ve never seen before.
All this John Green/Maggie Stiefvater car stuff eludes me because I drive a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid, but here you go. The Pig's on auction, and also this:
@mstiefvater Okay we are going to race. Maureen is going to emcee. Just need to pick a place and time. I'm completely serious.— John Green (@johngreen) April 16, 2015
Dom Sherwood has been cast as Jace on Shadowhunters.
In case you missed it last week, I posted an interview with iZombie, Veronica Mars and Party Down creator Rob Thomas.
And finally, we're all gutted to lose Jonathan Crombie, our forever Gilbert Blythe. Posh wrote a beautiful tribute saying farewell.
