Jem and the Holograms (header)

UPDATE: We’ve updated with a higher-res version of the Jem and the Holograms first look, plus the first official synopsis. Check them out after the jump.

The Jem and the Holograms movie came together seemingly overnight last spring, but we haven’t heard much from the candy-colored rockers since then. And we still haven’t, but at least now we’re finally getting to see them.

The first image from Jem and the Holograms has just been revealed, featuring Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, and Hayley Kiyoko as Aja. So does it deliver all the “glamour and glitter, fashion and fame” that we’d expect from this gang? Find out for yourself after the jump.  Read More »

Legend of Zelda netflix

Netflix and Nintendo are at work potentially developing a TV series based on The Legend of Zelda. The news broke last week and got video game fans salivating. Sure there was a short lived Zelda TV show many years ago, but a Nintendo property hasn’t been adapted into a big budget, live-action…well…anything since the early Nineties. And The Legend of Zelda has long been at the top of fan’s wish lists for a new show of movie.

But what is the show going to be? All we know at the moment is Nintendo and Netflix want a family friendly show with the aesthetic of Game of Thrones. Okay, but how old will Link be? Zelda? Which will be the main character? Is Ganon the bad guy? What story will they use? At this point, without a script or showrunner, all options are likely on the table.

Since most of The Legend of Zelda games are about younger characters, that how we went with our casting wishlist. We tried to pick actors who, for the most part, aren’t super famous but are age appropriate. Actors both in the box and way outside it. The resulting list features lots of people who you may or may not have heard of, but you wouldn’t be surprised to hear were cast on a Netflix show. That’s not to say we didn’t stretch here or there.

So below, we’ve got our own Legend of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist for Link, Zelda, Ganon and then a writer/showrunner/director type. Check it out. Read More »
