Leaving Netflix September 2017

While finding out what’s new to Netflix streaming each month is always exciting, those titles will be available for a while. There’s no rush to watch them immediately. You can chill whenever you choose.

On the other end is the far less exciting list of what’s leaving Netflix soon. A list that adds a ticking clock to a bunch of titles you may have been planning on watching. Below you’ll find the Leaving Netflix list for December 2017, so you can binge anything you’ve been meaning to watch before it disappears.

Pixar Coco

Coco
Director: Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina
Screenwriter: Adrian Molina, Matthew Aldrich
Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Alanna Ubach, Jaime Camil, Sofía Espinosa, Edward James Olmos
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 109
Release Date: November 22, 2017

From the moment the music starts, Pixar is telling its audiences that they are in for something new, something inspiring, and culturally beautiful. That doesn’t even really begin to describe what a wonderful film Coco is, but by the time the end credits are finished, it will be hard not to notice how many tears have already been shed. Pixar’s latest animated film is a profoundly beautiful celebration of culture, family, and music, which is very important at a time when politics have painted the subjects as criminals. Here we see characters of Mexican heritage, and even though the film is animated and the setting is fictional, everything about it feels entirely human. Check out the full review of Coco here below.

John Lasseter

The wave of sexual assault allegations continues to flow in, and people who were once highly respected by their peers are turning out to be creeps and perpetrators. Among those people are Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, and Louis C.K., all of whom have lost a great deal in the weeks since they’ve been outed.

Now, John Lasseter, the CCO of Pixar and head of Disney Animation Studios, is stepping away from his responsibilities and going on a six-month leave of absence in order to address some of the serious “missteps” he has taken throughout his career. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vulptex

Those cute and cuddly porgs may be the thing that everyone is excited about, but they aren’t the only creatures we will be seeing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There are also those mysterious crystal foxes, which have gone virtually unnamed since we first saw them in the second trailer.

But in EW’s week-long coverage of the highly anticipated Star Wars film, we are learning more about these foxes. They actually serve a purpose other than to look cool or hope that they are real and can be domesticated. Check out what their name is and how they will be the light to guide our heroes below.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: Admiral Holdo Creates Friction Within The Resistance

Star Wars: The Last Jedi header

Earlier this week, we got to see a handful of new photos for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we learned quite a few things about it. Among those things is that there will be some infighting within the Resistance. The events of The Force Awakens have left the faction broken and scattered across the cosmos, and it will be up to General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) to put the pieces back together.

However, those same images are teasing the idea that Leia could pass down her power of leadership to Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the Resistance’s ace pilot, and it appears that he and Holdo have very different ways of bringing an end to the war between themselves and the First Order. Find out more about Holdo’s role in the film in the full story below.

As the seasons start getting closer and the prospect of gift giving starts to clear off the cobwebs and come front and center to everyone’s consciousness yet again, there’s always the enigma of what to get, and more importantly, will the recipient be satisfied?

So that being said, and what remains our annual wont, here’s our picks for some great music recently released and upcoming. And as always, this one goes to eleven.

Dungeons & Dragons Xanathar's Guide To Everything book banner

Dungeons & Dragons: Xanathar’s Guide To Everything
Hardcover
D&D Accessory
Wizards of the Coast
Release Date: November 21, 2017

Creating magic as they always do, the creative team at Wizards of the Coast has deemed the world worthy of a new guide book. Xanathar’s Guide To Everything is an essential addition to the world’s greatest roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons! And better yet, at least for me, these great folks sent me not just an advance copy but they, in fact, sent me two! One of each cover. But enough of my shameless bragging, let me tell you about this newest release!

This tome is comprised of almost 200 pages of lore, ranging from arcane spells and items to specialization and options within character classes. This is in addition to the additional material presented for Dungeon Masters. In fact, the supplemental book is broken into three primary parts with two additional appendices. So much is packed within these pages that I will probably not even begin to do it justice. Nevertheless, I will do my best.

The Art Of Harry Potter hardcover book cover

The Art of Harry Potter
Hardcover
By Marc Sumerak
Publisher: Harper Design | HarperCollins
Release date: November 21, 2017

Some might call it coincidental. I call it cosmic. Not only do I have the opportunity of writing a review on The Art of Harry Potter by Marc Sumerak today, but I may or may not – by happenstance – be currently cozying up in my comfy chair by the fireplace wearing a Harry Potter-themed tee shirt. It’s getting *quite* magical over here, and I invite you to join me.

The Art of Harry Potter features original art from the Harry Potter films and it is magnificent. Its massive dimensions (10.1” width x 13.1” height x 1.7″ depth) are only outmatched by its heft, which I consider a positive. It evokes the feeling of having access to a large, valuable volume…perhaps something found in the restricted section of the Hogwarts library?
