Lindelof and Kennedy and Spencer, Oh My!
The biggest news of the week was the Writer’s Strike, which despite our goal for this post series, isn’t exactly old news. In fact, it’s still ongoing and there are a lot of complicated pieces. Aside from that, we have a story from Damon Lindelof about getting dropped from his Star Wars project, Phil Spencer reflecting on his console’s place in the market, and Kathleen Kennedy admitting what everyone has known for awhile: Star Wars needs to be spread out more.
All that and more is Old News Now!Continue reading Lindelof and Kennedy and Spencer, Oh My!

More Moana, Street Fighter, and Game of Thrones?
Been a bit of a slow few days, but here’s some news that I would classify under the category of “Again?” Moana is back, but this time it’s live action and The Rock will star as every character. The Street Fighter rights go to Legendary so we’ll get another movie whether we are interested or not. And finally, a new possible Game of Thrones prequel thing to release before Winds of Winter.
