Fangirl Friday: Hurricane disasters + Show/Movie issues


Hello! I hope all of you had a fantastic week. I feel so bad for those in the way of the three hurricanes that are going on right now. If you are in the way, please take precautions, evacuate or find a shelter near you. Please stay safe out there!

You all know Disney is starting to film the long awaited live action movie Aladdin. News broke out that they have created a new character in the film and hired a "white actor" to play the role. EVERYONE was honestly not happy about this. I'M not happy about this. I don't like the fact that they have created an unnecessary new character that will try to be the "potential husband for Princess Jasmine." Of course, this is a movie that shouldn't have a white character at all. Disney is receiving tons of backlash for this. I mean they whitewashing this film. Not good Disney. NOT GOOD!



In other news, Cartoon Network is going to add a fourth member to the Powerpuff Girls and will make her debut on September 17 in a five part movie event. I was shocked at first meaning, HOW DARE THEY TRY TO SCREW UP MY CHILDHOOD! Then I saw who was voicing it and all of my worries went away. Toya Delazy will be voicing the fourth Powerpuff Girl meaning that we will have a POC as a fourth member of the Powerpuff Girls! HURRAY FOR DIVERSITY!
