→ Possible Wreck-It Ralph Sequel in the Works

Makes sense to me. The first Wreck-It Ralph was a major success.

→ The Top 5 Mistakes that Walt Disney World Guests Make

This list is spot on. As Dutch Lomborowski of Mighty Men of Mouse once said, “rope drop matters people!”

→ Asking About Stephanie Brown At A DC Panel Doesn’t Get You An Answer But It Does Get You A Kindle

I am not sure what is worse: what DC did to Harley Quinn in the New 52 OR how DC completely refuses to bring back Stephanie Brown. Both are terrible, but at least there is a chance Stephanie Brown will come back and be the same character.

→ New Star Wars Rebels Series to Debut on Disney XD

Scheduled to premiere in fall 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

The action-filled series is set between the events of Episode III and IV – an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. Star Wars Rebels takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Details about the show are a closely guarded secret at this point.

I was slow to the Clone Wars bandwagon, but I will not be making that mistake with this new show.

→ NBC Passes on The Sixth Gun

Major bummer. I was loved the casting for this show. Apparently, Oni Press still thinks there is an outside chance we’ll see the show somewhere. I am not holding my breath.

→ Standalone HBO Go Not Coming Any Time Soon, Says Time-Warner CEO

People need to realize that the economics of offering HBO without cable just does not make sense currently. The benefit HBO gets from cable companies paying for nearly all of their advertising is much more than they could currently hope to recoup from offering the service stand alone.

→ ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Opening Moves Up a Day

I might have to order some tickets for the new opening night.

→ The Beat Covers NC Comicon

I know I’ve said this many times here before, but I think I will give this observation a name. We’ll call it the Comicon as Festival Phenomenon: when regular folks hear the word “comicon” they think of something like the circus or a carnival or a fair. It’s an event to plan for, a place to be entertained, a spectacle of approachable celebrities, and, as befits our socially engaged generation, a place to participate. NC Comicon demonstrated Comicon as Festival in no uncertain terms. The audience was informed and came expecting certain things…and they didn’t go away disappointed.

It is good to see a local show get such positive press. It can only mean good things for the future of the convention.

→ Neil Gaiman to write a S7 Episode of Doctor Who

His episode last season was great. I have high hopes that this one will be too.
