Did it Live Up to the Hype? #AllThatisBack – Season Premiere of All That

At 8:29 I turned off Disney Junior, and I told my 4 year old to prepare to watch something REALLY GOOD (I was hoping). I was not about to miss the season premiere of All That.

Jharrel Jerome’s Performance in ‘When They See Us’ is Heartbreakingly Amazing

I’m not gonna lie it took me a couple days to get through Ava Duvernay’s Netflix miniseries “When They See Us”. I was a baby when the case of the Central Park Five rose to popularity.

7 Moments From The Lion King I Can’t Wait to See in Live Action

In only 50 days, Jon Favreau’s live action take on The Lion King premieres in theaters worldwide. Aside from a few trailers, we haven’t gotten much of a sneak peek at the movie until today. Disney finally released The Lion King’s official character posters with just a little under 2 months to go. I have so many emotions about seeing this movie in live action. If I know anything from when I saw Aladdin last week, I know that live action remakes are not EXACTLY the same as the original. However, I felt like this was the perfect time for me to share my top moments from The Lion King that I can’t wait to see in live action.
