Rebecca Sugar on gender & sexual diversity in “Steven Universe”

On April 3, 2016, Rebecca Sugar held a panel during the MoCCa Arts Festival in Manhattan, NY for a lucky group of 85 fans.

In part four of eight videos, Rebecca discusses gender diversity in “Steven Universe” and why it is important for young kids to understand why it is okay to feel the way they do.

“If you wait to tell kids, to tell queer youth that it matters how they feel or that they are even a person, then it is going to be too late. You have to let it be what it gets to be for everyone… You are told that you should dream about love, this fulfilling love that you are going to have… like the Prince and Snow White are not someones parents. They are something you want to be and are dreaming of a future where you will find happiness Why shouldn’t everyone have that? It’s really absurd to think that everyone shouldn’t get to have that.”

Sugar also whipped out the ukulele to play a song for us related to her thoughts on this topic, “So this is love” from Cinderella. And the fans go crazy!

New WWE animated movie on the way – Scooby Doo and the Curse of the Speed Demon

Yoinks! WWE Studios and Warner Bros. have just announced a sequel to the amazing Scooby Doo and the Wrestlemania Mystery movie (seriously, you need to see it), and this one looks more insane than the last.

12936588_1165282633491336_8989190896078543157_n

WWE Studios tweeted this image along with the following text: “Get ready…Scooby-Doo! and WWE: Curse of the Speed Demon is coming this Summer to Blu-ray, DVD and DHD!”

Not much else is known about this movie yet, but it would appear that the Undertaker will have a big role in this one, along with Triple H and what looks like Paige next to him.

What excites me the most about this is the Wacky Racers elements. In this picture, we see at least four different race cars, and I am sure each of those is driven by a different pro wrestler. It appears the car on the left might say “Brie”, because we can see what looks like the last three letters of that name there so Brie Bella will be racing. The bull car might be Los Matadores, and the black car next to the Mystery Machine is anyone’s guess.

I legit can not wait for this movie, and if you are a fan of WWE, Scooby Doo, and animated nonsense, this will be the cartoon for you.

First image of Netflix’s “Voltron” revealed

Awhile back, we learned that Netflix had plans to reboot the “Voltron” animated series as “Voltron: Legendary Defender.” Today, we have our first full-color look at what the new giant mecha will look like, and I am impressed!

635943442454875619-VLT-FIRSTLOOK-2-

USA Today got the big scoop on the show and provided us with this info:

Legendary Defender centers on five Earth teenagers — Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Shiro — who are thrown into the middle of an intergalactic battle and become the last line of defense for Arus and other planets against an evil alien force led by King Zarkon.

Whereas most of the original characters were nondescript space explorers, the main players in the new series will have backstories, and “ a real purpose for being on this mission and getting involved with Voltron in the first place,” says Dos Santos.

As for the tone of the show, the creative team describes it as covering a “wide age group by giving Voltron an epic Game of Thrones feel with some humor, and upping the danger level.” Lauren Montgomery added, “Not everything is solved by Voltron alone. Sometimes they need to beat something just as the lions. Sometimes they just do it as themselves fighting as men.”

Produced by DreamWorks Animation, The first 13 22-minute episodes will hit Netflix later this year, but lucky fans at WonderCon in California will get the first look at the footage later today.

“Ghostbusters” animated movie on the way, now has director attached

the_real_ghostbusters_still

Heads up, Ghostheads! A new animated movie is coming your way and we have the details.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Animation has plans for a new “Ghostbusters” cartoon, which lucky fans were told about during the debut screening of the new Ghostbusters reboot trailer in Los Angeles.

Fletcher Moules will be directing the film, who you may have seen from his “Clash of Clans” commercial spots on television, while Ivan Reitman will act as producer. Not much else is known about the project, such as whether this film will feature the original busters or the new all-female cast or if this will be 3-D CGI or hand-drawn 2-D animation, but all that matters is the franchise will continue to grow and expand. It seems that Sony is going all in with this movie and has huge plans to expand it into a full-fledged epic, creating a new universe around it (the Ghost Corps) which makes hardcore GB fans like me more excited than ever.

No date is known for the film yet, but since it was just announced recently, do not expect to see much about it until next year at the earliest.
