YA Onscreen Things

This week in YA Onscreen: Black Panther and comic book movies galore, Nancy Drew (ish) and Little Women TV adaptations, and more.

Trailer for The Tribes of Palos Verdes (December 1st), featuring apparent new YA movie powerhouse, Jennifer Garner. (She'll also be in the Simon vs. Homo Sapiens Agenda adaptation.)

An oral history of The Craft, which also happens to be this week's Stream It pick. (Synergy!)

The top 20 'binge-raced' shows on Netflix, i.e., the fastest binge-watched shows. The only ones I've finished or am caught up with are 1 and 17-20. (Stop trying to make 'binge-racing' happen, Netflix. IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.)

Gina Rodriguez and America Ferrera organized a brunch with a bunch of fellow Latinas in Hollywood, and OF COURSE IT LOOKS AMAZING.

Wait, did y'all know there's going to be a live-action Teen Titans show?! Because I only learned about it when Ryan Potter (aka Hiro in Big Hero Six) was cast as Beast Boy. (More casting info at the link, incl. Lyla Garrity in some capacity!?)

Development has halted on the adaptation of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, with producer and co-director Channing Tatum cutting ties with The Weinstein Company and all its properties.

More and more heartbreaking stories of sexual assault in (and out) of Hollywood are emerging every day. Molly Ringwald writes about her experience, and The Daily Beast examines the other Hollywood 'open secret' of preying on young boys.

Social Media Things

Miscellaneous Things

A family stranded in the Scottish Highlands gets picked up by the Hogwarts Express. (Clearly, they didn't drive out there in a flying Ford Anglia.)

LEGO's Women of NASA set will be available on November 1st. (Which unfortunately doesn't include Katherine Johnson, due to approval rights.)

Round 2 of voting for Smallville Funko Pops has commenced. Somebody saaaaave meeeee... from making a decision, because I really can't choose.


That's it for this week. Feel free to share your thoughts on these or any links we may have missed in the comments below!
