It seems to me that Moana brought in two very different audiences this holiday weekend. For some, Moana was the newest entry in a long line of Disney princess movies and a step in the right direction for the studio in terms of inclusiveness and empowering young women. For others, it was a chance to cure their Lin-Manuel Miranda withdrawals after the turnover of the Hamilton cast and the end of the regular Ham4Ham sidewalk performances. That probably explains the odd mix of millennials and children at the recent matinee you attended.

Now that we know Cartoon Network’s zany Justice League Action is bound for a December premiere, new trailers are suiting up all over the place. Case in point, a new international trailer introduces a few heroes we haven’t heard from yet, as Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman take on some of the DC universe’s biggest villains.
We’ve had plenty of time to process the demise and unfinished material of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, particularly as Star Wars Rebels filled the gap under the new Disney umbrella. That said, at least some of the late Clone Wars material was eyed for a spinoff George Lucas declined, according to Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 has unfurled with a vastly different structure than its first season, with enough new characters that you’d forgive the absence of Arthur Darvill’s Rip Hunter. The Legends will have next week’s crossover to keep occupied, but new details shed light on when, and how Hunter will re-enter the picture.
Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series made clear at the moment of its announcement that the new IMAX-shot story wouldn’t use Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a basis for spinoff, though it remains an open question if the two series might share any mythology in common. At the very least, we know the new Marvel series won’t utilize the same VFX as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., perhaps creating a different look.
It’s no secret that Seasons 6 and 7 of The Walking Dead have proven more divisive than usual, between the buildup to Negan’s arrival, the months-long wait to identify his victim(s), and subsequent brutality. Season 7 hasn’t felt the same since, and according to ratings data, enough viewers have subsequently tuned out to reach a multi-season low.
Now that all the extended trailers and sneak peeks are out in the open, we still need Supergirl to kick off the big “Invasion!” crossover this coming Monday. So it is with our first “Medusa” clip, that Thanksgiving dinner gets a very Flash-y entrance at an unexpected moment.
Sherlock will be back in time for Season 4 to soothe your New Years’ hangover, but just in case of a Thanksgiving hangover, we’ve got new Season 4 photos to tide you over. Meet the littlest Watson (of whom Sherlock is clearly suspicious), as well as Toby Jones’ dastardly dapper foe in the latest look!
If you thought Supergirl palling around with the Legends of Tomorrow was the last crossover tease you’d get before next week’s “Invasion!”, you’re in for a treat. Watch the epic extended trailer for the four night event, complete with Flash, Arrow, aliens, and all manner of inexplicable crap!
Star Trek: Discovery producer and franchise heavy Nicholas Meyer unexpectedly let slip that Michelle Yeoh might be boarding the title ship, but trades are finally confirming. Yeoh won’t lead Star Trek: Discovery itself, but nonetheless play a major role with a separate vessel.
