Hi Fandom Fans! September may be almost over but the news is never over. There is plenty to report for the week of 9/19-9/24. We got everything from cancellations, trailers, fashion, and a fandom baby.
The WandaVision Trailer
The WandaVision trailer was released on Marvel Entertainment’s official YouTube page. As you can see above things about to get wacky. The trailer also reveals that the series will be released on Disney+ in 2020, but when exactly, we don’t know. There are only 3 months left in 2020, so at least we know it’s soon.
Burn the Witch to Stream October 1
Tite Kubo’s “Burn the Witch” will stream on Crunchyroll starting October 1, 2020. Burn the Witch is about witches and wizards living in Reverse London who can see dragons. Only those powerful enough can make contact with the dragons. If Tite Kubo’s name sounds familiar, then you’re probably a Bleach fan; Kubo is the creator of the hit manga.
Groot is Puerto Rican
Screenrant published an article about everyone’s favorite walking tree’s origins. In issue #3 of Guardians of Infinity, Groot finds himself in New York City. An Abuela tells her grandson that Groot is the Ceiba, a tree holding the spirits of Puerto Rico’s Taino ancestors who died when Puerto Rico was colonized. The Taino were the natives who lived on Borinquen before Columbus came. Happy National Hispanic Heritage Month, Migente!
The Dark Crystal Goes Dark
Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the prequel series to the film Dark Crystal, was canceled after one season. The news comes after their Emmy win for best children’s program.
