‘Stranger Things 4’ Makes Priah Ferguson a Series Regular

Priah Ferguson, who stole scenes in Stranger Things 2 and had an even bigger role in Stranger Things 3, is now officially a series regular on the Netflix series. Ferguson plays Erica Sinclair, little sister of Lucas. Ferguson was in multiple season 3 episodes, and even took part in a lot of the action. But the news that she’s a series regular now likely means she just signed an even better contract, and will have an even bigger part to play in season 4. Variety is reporting that scene-steale...

The Final Season of ‘The Clone Wars’ Will Cross Over Into ‘Revenge of The Sith’

It seemed like The Clone Wars has been raging on for a long time. The Star Wars animated series that covers the three years between the prequel films Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith has been on and off the air for more than a decade. It was only a matter of time before the series, which debuted on Cartoon Network in 2008 and has started airing its final season on Disney+ this year, would reach the events of Revenge of the Sith.

The Two Episodes That Transformed ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ From a Good Show Into a Great One

When Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted on Nickelodeon in 2005, there were no signs to indicate it was anything other than a silly kid’s cartoon beyond its richly imaginative world and the painstaking research that went into preserving the east and southeast Asian cultural influences. It was goofy, wacky, with a broad humor and even broader characters that were easy to categorize: the mother figure, the kid, the comic relief. The low-stakes adventures that the main trio went on were often neatl...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The History and Details That Enrich “The Bad Batch”

It’s been a long road waiting for these last twelve episodes of Star Wars:  The Clone Wars, but now that we have them, it’s time to look at the lore they’ve drawn from or added to. This first episode, “The Bad Batch,” takes place shortly after the beginning of the Outer Rim sieges and I would guess between six and eight months before Revenge of the Sith . So far, this is almost as close to the end of the war as we’ve seen on the show, though that will all change by the end of the season. ...

For starters, magic is still messed up on Earth—the gang moved the moon to stop Armageddon, but in doing so screwed up spellcasting. Now, every time a magician tries to do magi...
