We had a day off of school today and rather than go out for an adventure we decided to stay in and play some games and watch a movie together. We watched Toy Story 4 and I think everyone enjoyed it. I did find it more emotional the second time but then again I had just worked a 12 hour overnight shift and I am more susceptible to big feelings when I’m exhausted. I had through that the last movie was a good end point but they managed to make a great story that gives another good ending.
I had been sent a couple of table top games to try out and they will be featured in my video holiday gift guide coming in November. I’ll be showcasing different toys every day on the YouTube channel and on this blog.
The games we got were from Amigo games and they were X-Code a cooperative game that focuses on communication so that everyone an work together to crack a code in 3 minutes. We played a couple of rounds of this and it was fun and quick and easy. The other game was called Carnival of Monsters and this one was much more in depth. I think I started to lose everyone as I read through the rules. We muddled through the first round and then were able to pick up the game and get into it. Lots of strategy and fun to it. I’ll be talking about it much more in a few weeks.
The other day at the New York Comic Con there was a special She-Ra panel and during the panel the new looks for the characters were revealed. They also revealed a new teaser trailer and the date of the next season. I am happy to hear that the season will be 13 episodes and so not a tiny 6 or 7 episode season. I can’t stand when they do that. thirteen is a good amount of episodes. Fans there even got to watch the first episode of the season and then were treated to a panel with executive producer Noelle Stevenson, Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), A.J. Michalka (Catra), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), and Lauren Ash (Scorpia) moderated by TV Guide Features Editor Krutika Mallikarjuna.
The she-Ra themed poster for the season features a whole new look for Glimmer who has become the new queen of Bright Moon and leader of the Rebellion.
The Horde poster features Catra as the co-leader of The Horde. She is also sporting a new look.
Season 4 begins with the respective rises of Queen Glimmer as leader of the Rebellion and Catra as co-leader of the Horde. As the Horde makes advances on the Rebellion under the looming threat of Horde Prime’s arrival, the Princess Alliance makes heroic strides but begins to disagree on the best way to defend Etheria. Ultimately, a shocking discovery about Etheria itself causes Adora to reconsider everything she thought she knew.
In a season where relationships and power dynamics are in constant flux, the cast gave a sneak peek inside other pieces of the season including new character designs for Glimmer and Catra, Lauren Ash shared a clip from an episode focused on Scorpia, and Stevenson teased that there’s a special episode called “Boys Night Out” that includes a couple musical numbers.
New York Comic Con fans surprised with new season 4 teaser trailer and posters.
