A moment of full disclosure, if you don’t mind. It’s been a tough couple of weeks, and when things get tough I like to escape into the positive news throughout the week. I love hearing about new developments in the nerd realm and really helps me take mini vacations through the week. We all find ways to escape reality, this just happens to be mine.
Without further ado, let’s hit it!
10 Be Our Guest
Quite a few images were posted that offered us a much-needed view of Belle’s world! Seriously, the anticipation is intense and the photos of Lumiere, Cogsworth, Gaston and Lefou, and the Prince are awesome.

6 James and the Giant Peach
Sigh, childhood. Sam Mendes (Skyfall/Spectre) is in “very early” talks to direct live-action James and the Giant Peach for Disney. See more information here.
Speaking of childhoods, the new trailer for Max Steel was released. See more here.
4 Bill Nye
Bill Nye Saves the World will be making its debut on Netflix next Spring! It will be a talk show that will “explore science and its impact on politics, society, and pop culture.” Yes, please. See more here.
Hope for the future! A new Alzheimer’s drug is giving hope after patients showed signs that the rate of their decline had slowed. It’s a great step in the right direction. See more here.
SETI is investigating a mysterious signal from star HD 164595 which 94 light-years away! See details here.
2016 has been a difficult year, and we’ve lost many legends. Gene Wilder will always be my Wonka, I will always adore Blazing Saddles, and whenever “Puttin’ On The Ritz” comes on my 80’s station, I will think of Young Frankenstein.
Let me know what you’re excited about this week that I did or didn’t include in the bites below.
