Welcome to ‘My News’. This will be a not-so-daily, daily news article where I share the top 3 pop culture news articles of the day.
1. We Have a New Doctor!
Lucky Doctor 13 has been revealed throwing all Whovians into a meltdown! For the first time in the history of Doctor Who, there is a female doctor. Stirring things up will be Jodie Whittaker who will be the 13th doctor in the new season of Doctor Who.
The news obviously shocked a lot of people with a lot of negative feedback through Social Media shared. Personally, as someone who doesn’t watch Doctor Who, the idea sounds fresh. It’s something that I think needed to happen eventually. Somewhat like an Female Australian Prime Minister, lets just hope it goes better than the Julia Gillard reign…
2. Everything you need to know about Star Wars Land!
D23 did not disappoint when it came to announcements over the weekend with one of the biggest, both figuratively and physically being all the information on Star Wars land. Star Wars Land, now to be known from here on out as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has had a lot of its information given.
The 14-acre expansion will be hitting the Californian Disneyland before going over to the East Coast to the Florida Disney World. An attraction that was shared at D23 was the Star Destroyer hanger bay. This allows guests to feel as they are part of the movie franchise while hanging out in the hanger bay (no pun intended).
Further details were given about how interactive Galaxy’s Edge will be including how visitors will be able to fly the Millennium Falcon, use Galactic Credits as their currency and even have interactions with characters such as Kylo Ren and BB-8.
Set to open in 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will be the most impressive Disney expansion ever done, in my opinion.
3. Kingdom Heart 3 Details are here!
The long running Kingdom Hearts franchise has taken a step forward with a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3. Announced back in 2013, the details for the 3rd installment in the franchise have been scarce.
However just like with Star Wars news, D23 didn’t disappoint when it came to Kingdom Heart news either. A trailer was dropped, and some of the biggest news was released. A Toy Story world will be part of Kingdom Hearts 3!
As a fan of Toy Story, a lot more than Kingdom Hearts, this definitely has me intrigued and interested in picking up Kingdom Hearts 3 when it’s released. Square Enix say it’s set to release in 2018, but at this point, who knows!
