There are few young stars we love more than Yara Shahidi. This amazing young lady is not only an actress, she is also highly intelligent and an activist. Thus, it was only a matter of time before we found her headlining in movie titles. That day is here and Yara is set to star in a new film, The Sun Is Also A Star. Starring opposite of her, and playing her love is interest, is none other than Riverdale star, Charles Melton!

As you may already know, Charles Melton plays the role of “Reggie Mantle” in Riverdale, and is the second actor to do so. The first being Ross Butler who left the role after the first season due to scheduling conflicts with Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

Riverdale breakout Charles Melton has been tapped to star opposite Yara Shahidi in the YA adaptation The Sun Is Also a Star.

Based on the New York Times best-seller from Nicola Yoon, the film centers on Natasha (Shahidi), a girl in New York City whose pragmatism is challenged when she falls in love right before her family is set to be deported back to Jamaica.

Melton will play Daniel Bae, the teenage son of Korean immigrants who meets Natasha by fate.

MGM and Warner Bros. are behind the feature, having picked up the rights to Yoon’s book after partnering for an adaptation of the author’s debut, Everything, Everything. Tracy Oliver (Girls Trip) adapted the book for the screen, with Ry Russo-Young set to direct.

Alloy Entertainment’s Les Morgenstein and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton will produce. Tracy Oliver will executive produce. Cassidy Lange is overseeing the project for MGM, and Niija Kuykendall is overseeing for Warner Bros.

The Sun Is Also a Star is the highest-profile project to date for Melton, who is best known for playing fan favorite Reggie Mantle on the popular CW series Riverdale. His other credits include Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story. Melton is repped by Untitled and Gang Tyre.

The Sun Is Also a Star is set to hit theaters May 17, 2019.

Power Rangers was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated films of 2017. The darker, more realistic take on “five teenage heroes with attitude” and their nemesis, Rita Repulsa, was a true treat to see. Well, Hasbro is back at it again announcing that a sequel to the hit film is in in the works!

 In a recent report from Licensing.org, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said the toy company has big plans for the popular 1990s-era franchise, including a new film.

The Power Rangers brand has a “significant opportunity for growth,” Goldner said in the report. Not a lot of detail was given about the film, which will follow the 2017 Power Rangers movie that received mixed reviews from critics. CNET’s review of that movie notes that while the teen heroes don’t hang out at a juice bar/karate dojo, they “unmistakably” carry the spirit of the cult-favorite show.

Power Rangers fans with an interest in the Mighty Morphin toys and collectibles can mark their calendars for 2020. Goldner said in the licensing report that 2019 is a “transition year” for the Power Rangers brand, with new licensed products and entertainment content coming in 2020.

Lord Zedd and Green Ranger (Tommy Oliver)

This is huge news and we are glad to see the Power Rangers will be back in action. As you may recall, the post-credit scene reveals Tommy Oliver, the sixth and Green Ranger, will be introduced in the next film. There is no word on whether he or Lord Zedd will be the antagonist of the sequel. The Green Ranger was originally and adversary of the other Rangers in the series, and Rita did warn our heroes that others will come seeking the Zeo Crystals. The others are undoubtedly Zedd and other Ranger enemies like The Machine Empire, Master Vile, Divatox, or even Astronema, if the movies progress that far.

We are disappointed we will have to wait until 2020, however, for the sequel. Will the cast still be able to pass for teenagers then? Or is this a time to introduce the next set of Rangers? We will keep you posted on more news at it comes.

KIM POSSIBLE LIVE ACTION MOVIE  actors

Kim Possible made her Comic-Con debut in a surprise way at the end of Disney Channel’s July 21 panel for Big Hero 6: The Series. During the Big Hero panel, the show’s executive producers Mark McCorkle, Bob Schooley, and Nick Filippi took a moment to reveal a first look at the upcoming live-action adaptation of Kim Possible, the series which McCorkle and Schooley created in 2002.

Actress Sadie Stanley will give new life to the red-headed hero in a Disney Channel Original Movie premiering in 2019, written by McCorkle, Schooley, and Josh Cagan.

We have to say we are very excited about a live action Kim Possible movie. Women have really been kicking ass in the hero department the last couple of years with characters like Wonder Woman, Elastigirl, Okoye, Shuri, and soon Captain Marvel just to name a few. The actress set to portray Kim is cute, but we were expecting someone who looked slightly older and would be a babe–well, that’s how she is drawn. Madelaine Petsch would have been an awesome choice!

For other casting news, we know Sean Giambrone will play “Ron Stoppable,” Kim’s best friend/sidekick. There is no news, however, on her “man in the chair,” Wade. Nor do we have any casting news for her her villains Dr. Drakken or Shego. We just hope the film does the cartoon the same justice where we see a pretty cool teenage girl saving the world one mission at a time! What do you guys think of the cast thus far? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
