6. Willow

I love Nerdist’s Clarke Wolfe for her love of Willow and am so glad she talked to Ron Howard about it. Asking him if we would ever return to Willow’s world, Howard informed her Disney now owns the rights! Come on Disney, make this happen. A TV show would be amazing!

5. Space

So… seems there’s a claim that 234 alien civilizations have been found? Two scientists have analyzed over 2.5 million stars and galaxies for pulses of light emitted at regular intervals and discovered it in 234 stars similar in size to our Sun. The team believes that alien civilizations are behind those signals. See more here.
