Aristotle And Dante Discover The Universe By Benjamin Alire Saénz

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe is hitting the big screen as it is being adapted into a movie. There are no release dates as of yet, but from up and comers Max Pelayo as Ari and Reese Gonzales as Dante, to Eva Longoria and Eugenio Derbez as their parents respectfully, the casting is stacked. We know that they are already at the end of the touchup stage, so be prepared to hear more news of Aristotle and Dante soon.

Summary: Dante can swim. Ari can’t. Dante is articulate and self-assured. Ari has a hard time with words and suffers from self-doubt. Dante gets lost in poetry and art. Ari gets lost in thoughts of his older brother who is in prison. Dante is fair-skinned. Ari’s features are much darker. It seems that a boy like Dante, with his open and unique perspective on life, would be the last person to break down the walls that Ari has built around himself. But against all odds, when Ari and Dante meet, they develop a special bond that will teach them the most important truths of their lives and help define the people they want to be. But there are big hurdles in their way, and only by believing in each other―and the power of their friendship―can Ari and Dante emerge stronger on the other side.

Children of Blood And Bone By Tom Adeyemi

We’re going to be getting a Children Of Blood and Bone, and more than likely its sequel, Children of Virtue and Vengence, adapted into movies! We know so far that Paramount Pictures has bought the rights to the series, and they have had a really good reputation for making good movies. Also, Tomi Adeyemi will have a hand in making it, so we expect this will be our new fave fantasy release. Unfortunately, no release date or cast details have been revealed yet.

Summary: Summary: Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.

Felix Ever After By Kacen Callender

Felix Ever After is being adapted into a series by Amazon Studios. There are no updates yet of when it will be released, but what we do know is Field Trip Productions is working alongside Amazon Studios for this series, and we have high hopes for the series. We’re also excited because a lot of people will be getting representation, someone that looks like them on screen, with Felix Love.

Summary: Felix Love has never been in love—and, yes, he’s painfully aware of the irony. He desperately wants to know what it’s like and why it seems so easy for everyone but him to find someone. What’s worse is that, even though he is proud of his identity, Felix also secretly fears that he’s one marginalization too many—Black, queer, and transgender—to ever get his own happily-ever-after. When an anonymous student begins sending him transphobic messages—after publicly posting Felix’s deadname alongside images of him before he transitioned—Felix comes up with a plan for revenge. What he didn’t count on: his catfish scenario landing him in a quasi–love triangle…. But as he navigates his complicated feelings, Felix begins a journey of questioning and self-discovery that helps redefine his most important relationship: how he feels about himself. Felix Ever After is an honest and layered story about identity, falling in love, and recognizing the love you deserve.

You can catch the upcoming series premiering on Netflix on April 22, 2022.! We have Joe Locke starring as Charlie Spring, Kit Conner as Nick Nelson, and other up-and-coming young stars.

Summary: Charlie, a highly-strung, openly gay over-thinker, and Nick, a cheerful, soft-hearted rugby player, meet at a British all-boys grammar school. Friendship blooms quickly, but could there be something more…? Charlie Spring is in Year 10 at Truham Grammar School for Boys. The past year hasn’t been too great, but at least he’s not being bullied anymore. Nick Nelson is in Year 11 and on the school rugby team. He’s heard a little about Charlie – the kid who was outed last year and bullied for a few months – but he’s never had the opportunity to talk to him. They quickly become friends, and soon Charlie is falling hard for Nick, even though he doesn’t think he has a chance. But love works in surprising ways, and sometimes good things are waiting just around the corner…

If you love Hocus Pocus, then you’ll love the sequel. Hocus Pocus & The All-Sequel, have Hocus Pocus scrambling for its release. The movie is said to be a continuation of the first one, but with a modern twist! How much of the book will be in the film? We’re not quite sure yet. But we will be seeing a lot of familiar faces. Filming wrapped in January, so keep your eyes peeled on the Disney socials and Disney+ for more info. 

Summary: Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens. Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity. Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don’t quite go as planned, it’s a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches’ latest death-defying scheme.

Let Me Hear A Rhyme By Tiffany D. Jackson

Image Source: HarperCollins Publishers

Everyone was fighting for this one, and rightfully so. We will be seeing Let Me Hear A Rhyme as a TV show with Peacock right behind it. We don’t know when or with who yet. But, if you could also see the additional behind-the-scenes names for it and the things they have worked on *ahem* Power, I Am Not Okay With This, and How To Get Away With Murder, to name a few. Well, we know we’re all thinking the same thing, this is going to be really good. 

Summary: Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed. But that doesn’t mean that Quadir and Jarrell are okay letting their best friend Steph’s tracks lie forgotten in his bedroom after he’s killed—not when his beats could turn any Bed-Stuy corner into a celebration, not after years of having each other’s backs. Enlisting the help of Steph’s younger sister, Jasmine, Quadir and Jarrell come up with a plan to promote Steph’s music under a new rap name: The Architect. Soon, everyone in Brooklyn is dancing to Steph’s voice. But then his mixtape catches the attention of a hotheaded music rep and—with just hours on the clock—the trio must race to prove Steph’s talent from beyond the grave. Now, as the pressure—and danger—of keeping their secret grows, Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine are forced to confront the truth about what happened to Steph. Only each has something to hide. And with everything riding on Steph’s fame, together they need to decide what they stand for before they lose everything they’ve worked so hard to hold on to—including each other.

I’ll Be The One By Lyla Lee

Image Source: HarperCollins Publishers

I’ll Be The One will be a movie, and we will be getting to see it on HBO Max! There isn’t an HBO original movie that we don’t like, so we have very high hopes for this movie. This movie we predict will be a standout once it is released, and as K-POP fans, we are really excited. By the way, there are no release dates or casting up yet, but we are really hoping the movie will do the book justice with the representation. 

Summary: Skye Shin has heard it all. Fat girls shouldn’t dance. Wear bright colors. Shouldn’t call attention to themselves. But Skye dreams of joining the glittering world of K-Pop, and to do that, she’s about to break all the rules that society, the media, and even her own mother, have set for girls like her. She’ll challenge thousands of other performers in an internationally televised competition looking for the next K-pop star, and she’ll do it better than anyone else. When Skye nails her audition, she’s immediately swept into a whirlwind of countless practices, shocking performances, and the drama that comes with reality TV. What she doesn’t count on are the highly fat-phobic beauty standards of the Korean pop entertainment industry, her sudden media fame and scrutiny, or the sparks that soon fly with her fellow competitor, Henry Cho. But Skye has her sights on becoming the world’s first plus-sized K-pop star, and that means winning the competition—without losing herself.
