Week in Geek #25: The Lion King Trailer, Birds of Prey Title and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, November 24, 2018
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Boba Fett = Luke's Mom?

Apparently, Mark Hamill once pitched the idea that Boba Fett should be Luke's mom and a double agent working for the rebels. You know, it sounds crazy, but it wouldn't have been the absolute worst idea, like what some of the things have happened in The Last Jedi. I prefer clone Stormtrooper guy and Padme being who they are, but hey, Hamill's at least brainstorming, right?

Deadpool 2 = Best Picture?

So 21st Century Fox is pushing Deadpool 2 in a For Your Consideration campaign for a bunch of Oscars, including Best Picture. Really? C'mon guys. Don't waste your money on that. You know that's impossible. Go for the technical things, sure, but you're not getting nominated for Original Screenplay and such.

Groot and Rocket Raccoon Series to Disney Play?

Gimme. I thought they would ruin the MCU and then I saw GOTG and of course, changed my mind. I'm pretty much up for any spinoff series they want to show at this point. Hell, I'd watch a show about the sandwich shop owner from Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

That's the title? This movie is sounding worse and worse every day. It's not cute or quirky. It's just dumb.

The Lion King Trailer

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. The Lion King is one of my three favorite Disney films (the other two being Aladdin and Toy Story) and this looks amazing. The visual effects are astounding. I still wish Jeremy Irons were Scar, but we'll see how things turn out. At least they have Mufasa down. Now give me the Hans Zimmer score on top of it (particularly This Land) and I'm going to be so sold on this being my favorite movie of that year.
