Welcome to another week of nerdy news bites! Let’s distract you from reality, shall we? Put your feet up and enjoy.
10 Beauty and the Beast
No surprise, the Beast and Belle would make the news bites list. They were everywhere this week. So much so, the trailer set a record for 127.6 million views around the world in the 24 hours!
The Rock is officially the sexiest man alive. All I have to say, is finally. I’m excited to see Moana! My disnerdia is showing. See more here.

7 From Wizard to Doctor
During press for Fantastic Beasts, Eddie Redmayne was asked if he’d be interested in playing the Doctor. He proceeded to say tell the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show audience, “Would I do it? Yeah! It’s a great show. I’m also a huge fan of those actors, love Matt Smith.” I think Eddie would be a fine Doctor!
6 Painkiller Jane
The lovely Jessica Chastain is producing and starring in a film adaptation of Painkiller Jane! Jessica is known for playing badass women, so she will be phenomenal. See more here.
5 Studio Ghibli
Ghibli nerds rejoice! Director Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement for ‘Boro the Catepillar’! See more here.
Marvel’s Inhumans will be an ABC series, but the first two episodes will premiere at IMAX theaters summer 2017!
3 Lin and Disnerdia
The man just doesn’t stop, and I don’t really want him to. Lin-Manuel Miranda not only just finished Moana, is working on the Mary Poppins sequel, and The Little Mermaid, but is adding to his disnerd resume with another project! See more here.
2 Justice League Dark
We have a trailer!
A new Kong: Skull Island poster was released today. It’s a stunner!
