Episode #116: Lion King Queens

Hosted by Selina Wilken, Pamela Gocobachi, Marama Whyte

October 4, 2016

Hype Podcast discusses the latest Fantastic Beasts trailer, The Lion King remake, Pitch, Luke Cage, and all the movies Marama watched recently.

Selina, Pam and Marama are back to dissect this week’s pop culture news stories! Luke Cage is now on Netflix — add it to the list of all the shows we’re already failing to keep up with — Fantastic Beasts is drawing ever-closer, and there are some pretty cool casting announcements in the movie-world.

How We Hype:
– Marama is all about Bridget Jones’ Baby and Star Trek Beyond, and also had a Sam Claflin love fest with Me Before You and Love Rosie
– Pam brings us up to speed with Niall Horan’s This Town and Busted’s On What You’re On
– Selina recaps her experiences — both good and bad — at Copenhagen Comic-Con.

News:
– The final Fantastic Beasts trailer is here, and it is glorious
– Disney is remaking The Lion King. We celebrate with a song
– New Twilight movies are still a possibility, but do we want them?
– Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson team up for a movie about a late-night talk show host
– Daniel Craig is still first choice for James Bond
– Amandla Stenberg to star in the Darkest Minds adaptation
This Is Us has been greenlit for a full season
– The Will & Grace cast reunited for U.S. election PSA
– Netflix releases new trailer for The Crown, which looks amazing
– Lady Gaga has been officially confirmed for the Super Bowl.

TV Show of the Week:
– Marama reviews Luke Cage episode 1 (and Selina has a Netflix confession)
– Selina’s still watching This Is Us, and liking it
– Pam thinks Pitch is getting better and better.

As always, we wrap up the show with Listener Feedback, which derails into a discussion about Patronuses, as Marama takes Hypable’s alternate Patronus quiz and makes a surprising discovery.
