Geekerella: A Fangirl Fairy Tale
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By Ashley Poston
Publisher: Quirk Books
Release date: April 4, 2017

There’s been plenty of takes over the years on the Cinderella fairy tale of an orphaned girl who is made to be the house servant to her cruel stepmother and mean stepsisters who’s life takes a miraculous turn after a trip to the ball. But Geekerella is the first time Cinderella’s story centers on science fiction fandom and a cosplay ball.

In Geekerella: A Fangirl Fairy Tale, the debut novel by Ashley Poston, teenager Danielle “Elle” Wittimer is obsessed with Starfield, the classic science fiction television series she grew up watching with her dad. Ever since her father passed away when she was 8, she’s been relegated to a tiny room, excluded from all activities and family fun, and made to do all the housework for her stepfamily — her socialite stepmother Catherine and obnoxious twin stepsisters Chloe and Calliope, all of whom disregard and disrespect her.

Cinderella vs Belle: Princess Rap Battle (Sarah Michelle Gellar & Whitney Avalon)

Whitney Avalon – actress, comedienne, rapper…that’s right, I said rapper, has come out with yet another awesome Princess Rap Battle, the video series she started in September. In her fourth effort, she pits Cinderella against Belle, aptly so, since a new adaptation of Cinderella just hit the big screens, and a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and Dan Stevens is in the making. What makes this rap battle so much more viral and awesome than the others (which are great, too), is that the cult princess herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, raps as Cinderella.

Watch Gellar’s Princess rap battle and the other three from the video series here below.

Disney's Cinderella live-action film 2015 Lily James

Cinderella
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgard, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi and Helena Bonham Carter
Walt Disney Pictures
Release date: March 13, 2015

What I, a grown man, think of Disney’s new live-action Cinderella film is really irrelevant. So let’s go straight to the target audience: Charlotte, my 4-year-old daughter. “Char, what did you think of Cinderella?” “Cinderella had a pink dress, then she had a blue dress, and then gets married and has a white dress.”

Suffice it to say, the target crowd will lap up this latest retelling of the classic story, made timeless in 1950.

Richard Madden and Jimmy Kimmel

Richard Madden (Robb Stark, Game of Thrones) visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his new movie, Disney’s live-action Cinderella, set to hit theaters March 13, 2015.

Watch the “painfully” funny video below.

They discussed the pros and cons of being Prince Charming. On the one hand, he’s freakin’ Prince Charming, and his niece can watch the film (why not Game of Thrones?). On the other hand, if “snot comes out of your nose – oh nice one Prince Charming!” from women in your life.

“I’m waiting for the headline, NOT SO PRINCE CHARMING,” says Madden.

Cinderella live action movie Cinderella (Lily James) at Ball

Disney Studios is gearing up for its first official outing of what will no doubt be a big 2015 for them studio its live action adaptation of Cinderella coming March 13, 2015. In this third trailer for the upcoming film, released today at the stroke of midnight, we get a little more of the story beyond the well-known animated Disney film and more of the wicked Cate Blanchett. The film hopes to expand into the motivations of the Prince’s father and perhaps some behind-the-scenes ill-willed teamwork with Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters.

Check out the new trailer here below.

Walt Disney Records has only scratched the surface in delivering crowd-pleasing soundtracks. Sure, Frozen may be at the top of the Billboard charts with its earth-shattering sales – and deservedly so, might I add – but Disney is drawing from its vault to produce more must-buy music.

The announcement of the Walt Disney Records Legacy Collection promises the releases of at least one dozen new albums based on Disney films or parks celebrating anniversaries in 2014 and 2015. The start of this special set of music will not only contain songs and scores from previous releases, but also previously unreleased demos. Bonus material: score! Complemented by animator Lorelay Bove‘s original artwork to match the respective pieces’ themes, these albums will undoubtedly offer a treasure trove of musical goodness for those who enjoy Disney soundtracks.
