Frozen 2 Trailer Release.

The Frozen fever continues to rise with the all-new Frozen 2 trailer release. The trailer is very vague as to what the sequel will be about, as is the plot summary. All that’s known about the sequel so far is that Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf will be traveling deep into the forest to discover an ancient mystery of their kingdom. In the trailer itself, Elsa appears to be training and expanding her magic abilities while both Anna and Kristoff seem on edge to fight someone or something. There’s one part in the trailer that looks Elsa may or may not be surrounded by fire.
Could there be another person out there that has elemental powers like Elsa, but they can control fire? Who knows, people will just have to wait for more trailers to come out. I’m not entirely positive about this but, I’m guessing they’ll be adding more Scandinavian folklore and Germanic mythology into the story. In the first film, they include the mythical rock troll creatures, however, unlike in the film, these creatures in mythology aren’t as friendly. In fact, they tend to kidnap children and keep them hostage so, no they don’t adopt “orphan” kids.
Also, as far as the elemental powers, Frozen is based off an old fairy tale that is known as the Snow Queen and the whole elemental thing can be found in different mythologies around the world. But considering that the world of Frozen is technically taking place in Norway it’s safe to assume that the driving mythology here is Germanic or Norse myth. And in Norse myth, there is a race or group of people that have elemental powers that are known as the Ettins (depending on the source) and for some unknown reason, these are seen as dangerous to the gods. One of the more well-known Ettins is the god Loki; he’s the god of tricks, magic, and fire. So, perhaps in this new film, they’ll have more mythology within the story to explain more about Elsa’s gifts.

Chris Pine has a new TV mini-series coming to TNT called I Am the Night. This show was inspired by true events surrounding the infamous case of the Black Dahlia murder. Pine’s character is a reporter, Jay Singletary, who looked into the mysterious murder and it ended up ruining his career, however, Pine’s character is only a subplot in this series. The main character is a girl named Fauna Hodel who grew up outside Reno, Nevada. Reno always wondered about her family and where she came from until one day she found an adoption paper proving her suspicions to be true.
This proof only causes Reno to become more curious as to who her original family is as she runs away to solve her own mysterious origins. Reno runs into reporter Jay who was tipped off about the girl and her possible relations to the Black Dahlia case. When both of them keep looking for answers they soon discover that Hollywood has some dark secrets being held by gynecologist Dr. George Hodel who shares Reno’s last name. One of the dark secrets surrounds the cold case of the Black Dahlia and possibly why Reno was given up at birth. This series comes out sometime this January and will have eight episodes in total.

Dog Gone Cute. Tom Holland.

Tom Holland who plays Spider-Man in the MCU is known for his sweet and kind heart and his love for dogs. In fact, his Pitbull Tessa has been seen with him at press interviews, red carpet events, and pictures all over his social media accounts. Just recently Holland posted a picture of himself and a stray he found on the set of his latest film, The Devil All The Time, on his Instagram asking the owners to contact him to get their dog back. He also notes that if no owners show up that he’ll gladly adopt the cute pup. The dog is a beagle mix and Holland has pictures of himself sitting with the dog and giving the dog some cuddles.
Hopefully, the dog’s family is found but if not the dog will be in great hands. Despite being busy with promoting End Game that comes out next month, he’s also working on this new film, and then will have to promote Spider-Man Far From Home as well. But Holland does a great job taking care of Tessa that I’m sure he’ll do great with this one. I also believe that Tessa would love to have a new dog friend to keep her company when her master Holland does have to spend time away from her. Two dogs are more fun to have and can really enjoy each other if their owner has a crazy work schedule.

The palace of Versailles is hosting a rave party for the first ever this summer of 2019. The party will take place in the Hall of Mirrors and will feature popular DJs in France. The palace of Versailles teamed up with Ed Banger records to host this event for June 8th. There are three different ticket packages, the cheapest being $25. But of course if one is traveling across the pond or from another country within Europe one is going to have to pay for plane tickets, other transport, hotel/hostel/Airbnb rooms, and other expenditures such as food.
The Versailles has always been a popular place for parties ever since the reign of Louis XIV. The palace has been hosting parties ever since and one of the more popular ones is their masquerade ball, however, this is the first time the palace has hosted a rave with electro dance music. Some of the French DJs attending include Breakbot x Irfane, Myd, and So Me. The main dance will be held in the Hall of Mirrors but the terraces over the gardens will also become dance floors for people to dance to during the night. This festival marks the traditional celebration of the Sun King.

The entry ticket costs between €22 to €30 (about $25 to $34 USD) for general admission and the VIP ticket cost around €60 (about $68), which includes access to the VIP area and bar, seating, a glass of champagne, and a reserved parking space. The Gold ticket costs around €160 (about $180), which includes access to the Gold lounge and bar, seating, two glasses of champagne, buffet, and a reserved parking space within the park of Versailles.

A Never Ending Story Remake.

10-fun-facts-about-the-neverending-story

Who here remembers the Never-Ending Story trilogy? For most of us, this film was a part of our childhood. The magic of a kid escaping his world and into a book’s world while befriending a dragon that helped him on an adventure for an empress was such a classic. Well, I’m here to tell you that there’s a remake of the film in development right now. I know some are you are probably upset that they’re redoing a classic childhood movie but at least wait to see the trailer first before not giving it a chance. You know, don’t knock it ‘til you try it.
For those of you who don’t remember the plot or haven’t seen the movie trilogy yet here’s a plot summary for you. The plot follows the life of a boy named Bastian Balthazar Bux who often faces bullies every day at school. One day he discovers a book that contains a parallel universe. The more he immerses himself in the story the more his life becomes intertwined with the plot of the book. The plot tells the story of a hero who is supposed to save the realm of Fantasia on behalf of an empress. After I saw the A Wrinkle in Time remake, along with the other remakes such as CinderellaBeauty and the Beast, and the Jungle Book I can say that the remake will bring better graphics to the story. Not to worry though, they probably won’t change the plot too much.

I mainly want to see what Falkor will look like since he was a puppet in the original. I also think this story should be told to a generation that might not know about it yet since it still covers important topics and situations kids face today. Situations like how to deal with bullies and discovering yourself. It also teaches kids that books are a great escape from reality but also great teachers that can help you understand the world around you. Especially if the book character relates to you in some way or you look up to the protagonists in the book. This film is still in development so there won’t be a release date or trailer out anytime soon. That’s all for this blog post ‘til next time Femm readers.
