We’ve survived nerds, some would say barely, but here we are. We’re close to greeting 2017, a year full of wonderful nerdy potential. Regardless of what the new year may bring, know you can always escape in the nerdery. Be hopeful, look up and wonder, and most importantly be curious!
Here are you final nerdy news bites for 2016!
10 Be a Rebel Princess
We have to acknowledge the heavy loss the nerd community suffered this week. Carrie Fisher was one of a kind, but we cannot allow ourselves to forget all she stood for and what she inspired. I am taking a page from Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.

9 Scarlett Johansson
From one badass lady to another, congrats are in order to Scarlett for being the highest grossing actor in 2016! Her films made $1.2 billion world-wide! Ask for that raise, girl.
Let’s escape to the world of Pandora with a sneak peek at the developing attraction.
7 Beauty and the Beast
The film drops March 17th, but we’ll get the soundtrack March 10th!!! See more here.
6 Debbie Reynolds
As I write this, news came in the iconic Debbie passed a day after losing her Carrie. My heart goes to the family during this trying time. As a nerd for classic films, Debbie was a staple in my home. I will always remember her, like this.

Amidst all the craziness of 2016, there were quite a few milestones achieved for space travel.
4 Unfortunate Events
A little conversation…
3 Disney and Hulu

Seems this project is really early in it’s process, but the idea excites me. The gorgeously designical film, Metroplis may be headed to mini-series. Mr. Robot’s Sam Esmail, may be playing a part in bringing the story to us? Fingers crossed. See more here. If you haven’t seen the move, go find it.
