YouTube Wednesday: Celine Tam…the little girl with the big voice

 

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an AMAZING singer that I’m sure you’ve all heard about! If you’ve never heard the out of this world vocal talent of 10 year old Celine Tam, then hold on to your headphones (unless you don’t have headphones right now. You can go grab them I’ll wait. Ready? Cool). Celine has already competed in numerous competitions around the world including: America & Britain’s Got Talent, & has been featured on Steve Harvey’s ‘Little Big Shots’ & ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, among others. So now let’s get to the awesome music. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The 1st video we’re going to talk about is Celine’s cover of ‘That’s The Way It Is’ by Celine Dion, which was uploaded on February 10th, 2017 (you can check out the video below). I had to start with this cover because Celine has stated previously that her parent’s named her Celine after the iconic singer (her little sister is named Dion btw, which is the cutest thing ever). What I really love about this cover is not only the incredible vocal talent & control that this young girl has, but also the personality & stage presence you see. This definitely shows the type of entertainer she will grow to be someday. Next up we’re going to discuss is Celine’s duet with fellow child star in the making Jeffrey Li of ‘You Raise Me Up’ Secret Garden (however most people are probably more familiar with the cover version by Josh Groban), which was uploaded on February 1st, 2018. I’m honestly SOOOO excited to talk about this cover because this duo has performed this song for years, and every time I hear it, I’m left speechless.

Next up we have Celine’s cover of ‘A Moment Like This’ by Kelly Clarkson, which was uploaded on June 15th, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This is another phenomenal cover that truly shows what a talent vocalist Celine is. This is a very difficult song for most adults to sing, so it’s truly remarkable what a special talent Celine has. It’s really fun to see Celine cover artists known for having BIG voices, because it shows you the foundation she has to become the next big voice in pop music. Lastly we have Celine’s cover of ‘Havana’ by Camila Cabello, which was uploaded on July 14th, 2018. This is a really fun video to watch because not only do we get to hear Celine sing a snippet of the song (which is an interesting style change for her, & really shows what a versatile vocalist she is), but it also features very cute dancing from her sister Dion. In this video you once again get to see Celine’s bubbly personality shine through, which shows what a likeable performer she is. It’s really fun when you feel like you know your favorite singers on a personal level, so Celine definitely proves in this video that she has an equally big personality to go with AMAZING voice.

Monday Memos: Book Review of ‘Songs About a Girl’ by Chris Russell

“I didn’t care what had happened. I didn’t care if I got hurt. Because the truth was, I was falling for him, irretrievably, and there could be no turning back”.- Charlie from ‘Songs About a Girl’

 

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we have a book review of the first book in a new series called ‘Songs About a Girl’ by Chris Russell. This book was provided for review by Flatiron Books (a division of Macmillan Publishers), and was released on July 28th, 2016. Just so y’all know this will be a spoiler-free review so let’s get to the fun part of this blog, the book! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

This is a story about a 15 year old girl named Charlie who is given the opportunity to photograph the biggest pop band in the world Fire&Lights. Although Charlie is a quiet, shy girl, she is quickly is pushed into the spotlight after a photo of her with one of the guys from the band is leaked. At 1st Charlie decides to distances herself from the band, but when she finds a connection between their new lead single and poetry in her deceased mother’s old journal she can’t ignore investigating a possible connection. The harder Charlie looks for answers about her own past, the more she experiences the dark side of fame and fandom.

 

I’m going to start off by saying that the premise of this book was super interesting. We live in a time where reality & gossip shows allow us to feel closer to our favorite stars than even before. Also, with the addition of social media we’re able to join fandoms & feel a community around our admiration. Although ‘Songs About a Girl’ is marketed (rightfully so) as a One Direction fan-fiction, it really does speak to the current celebrity-centric culture we all live in. Although this isn’t a new topic, I really liked the way Chris Russell showed his love for fandoms in this story, but also showed the consequences of what can happen when they cross the line. I also really liked the characters he created. Charlie is a relatable protagonist, her bff Melissa is the fangirl in us all, the guys in the band are interesting and fun to read about, even the “villains” & more minor characters serve their roles well. The problem however, lies in how all of this comes together. In the end this story is a One Direction fan-fiction at its core which can either be a good thing or a not do good thing. If you really like romance & One Direction then you’ll probably love this book, but only if you really really love both of those things. Personally I’m a fan of both but this story just didn’t click with me. The whole time I kept getting distracted by who inspired which character and it took me out of the story too much. The big twist was very predictable (and I’m horrible at predicting this stuff so that tells you a lot), and the love triangle was solved to quickly (I know, I know, a lot of us have asked for this but a little more tension is always nice). Also, the mystery surrounding Charlie’s mom felt unnecessary & ultimately seemed like it could potential get in the way of the romance between her & the guy she chooses at the end of the book. I feel like this book serves a very niche market which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but because of this forces me to give it 2 smiley faces. This is definitely a quick, light summer read that you can try out if it sounds interesting, but because it doesn’t have a very vast market appeal I can’t recommend it for everyone. However if you do read it & love it, then book 2 is already out, and book 3 will be released later this year!

YouTube Wednesday: A look back at the song that REALLY solidified Rebecca Black’s career

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about something a little different. Today, July 19th, is the 7 year anniversary of Rebecca Black’s second single ‘My Moment’ (which followed her viral internet hit ‘Friday’). Why am I talking about this you ask? Well because Rebecca Black honestly has a very interesting story that is a HUGE part of YouTube history as a whole (also we did previously discuss the ‘Rebecca Black Effect’ that was a trend for a little while a few years ago, you can check out that post here: http://celindareyesblog.com/2014/06/youtube-wednesday-the-rebecca-black-effect/). Just like TV or film teen stars, Rebecca spent her entire teen years in the spotlight. Now being a teenager can either be the best or worst time of your life, but it’s definitely harder when your attempt at making your dreams come true get turned into a giant worldwide joke. Honestly I never (and still don’t) understand why everyone gave her such a hard time. However what I’ve always liked about this story is how Rebecca was able to use this ridicule & turn it into a career doing exactly what she wanted to do. So today we’re going to talk about how Rebecca Black’s song ‘My Moment’ actually predicted her future. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Now as we know it all began when Rebecca’s parents paid Clarence Jey & Patrice Wilson of Ark Music Factory $4,000 to write & produce a song for Rebecca, & record a music video for her. I couldn’t find an exact number in regards to how much money Rebecca has made from ‘Friday’ (although I’m sure we can all guess). What we do know is that this song led to A LOT of opportunities for her. Katy Perry (who was honestly having the best year of her career, at least at the time this post is being written) immediately came to Rebecca’s defense by not only inviting her to perform ‘Friday’ at various upcoming shows she had, but also giving Rebecca a lead role in her ‘T.G.I.F’ music video which premiered in June 2011. Other high profiled celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Simon Cowell, & Lady Gaga also came to Rebecca’s defense, and the song was covered on the 2nd season of the hit Fox show ‘Glee’. Rebecca continued to ride this fame by uploading more original music, as well as beauty/fashion videos on her YouTube channel. Throughout the rest of her teen years, Rebecca hosted the 2011 ‘YouTube Rewind’ as well as the 1st MTV ‘O Music Awards’ Fan Army Party’, has appeared at VidCon (one of the biggest annual YouTube conventions), had her own Go90 (an online streaming site) show called ‘Life After Friday’, as appeared on the reality show ‘The Four’, is an ambassador for anti-bullying campaigns, and so much more!

So now back to your original question, why are we talking about ‘My Moment’? Well although ‘Friday’ is what made Rebecca Black famous, ‘My Moment’ is what showed that she had staying power. Most of us have dealt with some sort of bullying in our lives, but nothing compares to the worldwide ridicule that Rebecca faced. To go through that throughout your teen years & still pursue in a career in the entertainment industry is not only admirable, but also very brave. However, personal strength & determination alone don’t make a successful career. Rebecca could’ve easily become just a forgettable part of internet history, but instead has been able to hold our attention all these years later. If you think about it, there have been other “internet sensations” that have quickly burned out, and now are never mentioned. Even though internet fame can come quickly, it can also disappear even more quickly. In the opening lines of ‘My Moment’, Rebecca says, “Weren’t you the one who said that I would be nothing, well I’m about to prove you wrong”, and it looks like she was right.

YouTube Wednesday: Natalie Barbu, the inspirational beauty/fashion that YOU need in your life

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an amazing beauty/fashion/life guru named Natalie Barbu. Natalie is a recent college graduate who is now beginning her career as an Industrial Engineer. The reason why I decided to focus on Natalie’s channel today is not only due to her vast knowledge on beauty & fashion, but also because of how interesting & unique her channel is. Trust me as soon as you watch one of Natalie’s video you’ll be so immersed that you’ll instantly want to subscribe (which you should do because why miss out right? Right!). So now let’s get to the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The 1st video we’re going to talk about is Natalie’s ‘My First Dorm Room Tour!’, which was uploaded on December 4, 2014 (you can check out the video below). I know, I know it’s summer & nobody wants to think about school, but it will be time to go back before we know it & you gotta be ready (stop booing!). Now what’s one of the most important things about starting college? You got it, shopping! If you’re gonna live in a dorm/apartment or just want to update your room then this video will offer you some GREAT inspiration about cool things you can buy/make in order to make your space uniquely you. So now that we’ve covered the future, let’s talk about a video that will help you right now! Let’s discuss Natalie’s ‘Healthy Summer Snacks | Quick And Easy’ video, which was uploaded on July 15, 2015. Now if you made a New Year Resolution to eat healthier but haven’t started (so basically all of us), this is a MUST SEE for you! In this video Natalie shows how to make easy, inexpensive snacks that everyone can enjoy all summer long. Also, as an added bonus you can also transition these snacks into your fall routine as a good after school snack (so you can be as lazy as you want & only memorize a few recipes while being able to snack healthily. Everyone wins!).

Now we’re going to look at Natalie’s ‘DAD TAKES OVER MY TINDER ACCOUNT Inspired by Why Him?’ video, which was uploaded on April 7th, 2017. In this video we definitely get to see more of Natalie’s fun, bubbly personality, as well as how funny her dad is. It’s hilarious to see Natalie’s dad swipe through her Tinder profile, and to hear his reasons why certain guys don’t make the cut. It’s a really fun video that we can definitely all relate to. Lastly we have her ‘BEING A GIRL IN ENGINEERING + Why More Girls Need to go into STEM’ video, which was uploaded on June 26th, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This is a very interesting video in which Natalie tells us about her experiences as a women pursuing a career as an engineer. She also goes into detail about the doubts & offensive questions she’s encounter while pursing her degree. It’s amazing to see YouTubers who are not only knowledgeable about the skills they showcase on their channels, but also take the time to talk about their own experiences/hardships with their viewers.

YouTube Wednesday: Robby Reads…the BookTuber you’ll be OBSESSED with this summer!!!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss a new Booktube channel that you need to follow RIGHT NOW!!! If you’ve never heard of Robby Reads then you’re not only missing out on a great Booktube channel, but also an AMAZING Bookstagram page (seriously his bookish pictures are so beautiful that you’ll wonder how your Instagram feed lived without them). Although Robby gained a lot of fame in the book community through his Bookstagram, he is quickly proving that he is also an incredibly interesting online personality that you will want to watch over and over again. So now Let’s get to the fun part…the videos! Ready? Ok, Let’s go!!!

 

The first video we’re going to discuss is Robby’s ‘…Ready For It?’ video, which was uploaded on September 3, 2017 (you can check out this video below). In this video he answers bookish questions that are themed after Taylor Swift songs such as: the book you are never ever getting back together with…like ever (sorry I couldn’t help it), a red book, a forbidden “love story” book, etc. In this video we’re not only able to learn more about Robby based off of his choices, but we’re also able to see what a fun & bubbly personality he has. This video is the perfect mix for book & Taylor Swift fans that will give you all the feels. The next video we’re going to talk about is his ‘DIY Harry Potter Starbucks Drinks’, which was uploaded on March 12, 2018. This is definitely the perfect DIY project to do this summer whether you want a refreshing drink or even a cool Instagram picture. In this video Robby shows us how to make variations on popular Harry Potter themed Starbucks Drinks that are simple to make & low cost enough to make over and over again. This will definitely bring a little magic to your day!

Next up we have Robby’s ‘How I Take And Edit My Bookstagram Pictures’, which was uploaded on April 7, 2018 (you can check out the video below). This is definitely one of my favorite videos because it’s very interesting to see a popular Bookstagrammer explain his process. In this video Robby not only explains how he sets up his shots, but also which photo editing apps he uses, as well as tips & tricks in order to make the most out of these apps. The last video we’re going to discuss is his ‘Huge BEA, Bookcon, & NYC Book Haul’, which was uploaded on June 12, 2018. Now we all have to admit that we love book hauls (because honestly it’s like shopping without having to spend money), but the best hauls of the year are definitely the Bea & Bookcon Hauls. In these hauls we get to see cool new arcs so we can prepare for all of the new upcoming releases. Again we get to not only see Robby demonstrate his vast knowledge of books, but also the winning personality that has made people fall in love with him.

YouTube Wednesday: Merphy Napier…the BookTuber you need to subscribe to NOW!!!

Hello people of the internet!!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about an amazing new Booktuber that every book lover will be ADDICTED to!!! For about a year I’ve been watching a Booktuber named Merphy Napier, and during this time I’ve noticed that her channel has become better and better the longer I’ve watched it. Merphy has a natural ease in front of the camera, which allows the viewer to feel as if they’re having a discussion with one of their friends also, her video content is very diverse and interesting which allows her viewers to know that they won’t ever feel bored watching her channel. I know that Merphy will quickly become a very popular Booktuber, so I thought that now was a perfect time to discuss what her channel has to offer so that you can subscribe to her today. Also she is a self-published author so make sure you support her by checking out her debut book ‘Perfection’ on her website here: https://www.merphynapier.com/menu/. So now let’s get into the fun part of this post, talking about the videos. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Merphy’s ‘DISCUSSION: How Many Books Is Enough?’ video, which was uploaded on November 12, 2016. This is a very interesting video that quickly discusses the topic of competition in the BookTube community. Many people have posed the question of whether or not our need to read as many books as possible in a month is a consequence of book tracking websites such as Goodreads, or even BookTube itself. This expands into other questions such as: ‘Should you only read what’s new and popular in order to stay relevant in the community (which goes into another topic about buying new releases as soon as they come out)?’, and ‘Are you allowed to DNF (not finish) a book if you aren’t enjoying it?’. Honestly this is a very complicated and interesting topic that still floats around the BookTube community today. I think Merphy does an amazing job of discussing her point of view on this topic, which is basically that reading shouldn’t be a competition, it should be fun. The next video we’re going to discuss is her ‘Top Five Wednesdays: Unlikable Protagonists’ video, which was uploaded on June 20, 2017 (you can check out the video below). I found this to be a very fun video to watch because as much as we love gushing about our fav protagonists, we also love complaining about protagonists that we consider unlikable (I’m looking at you Bella Swan!). In this video Merphy discusses several popular Young Adult protagonists that are considered unlikable, and gives her opinions about why they may not be as bad as everyone thinks. It’s a very fun video to watch and a must see for all fans of the Young Adult genre.

Next up we have Merphy’s ‘Books I Never Should Have Read’ video, which was uploaded on September 7, 2017. I really love the topic of this video because at first you think it’s going to be a rant video about her least favorite books, but in reality it’s a video about how incorrect marketing can cause a book to suffer. In this video Merphy explains that if a book is not marketed to the correct audience then this can result in low-ratings, bad reviews, and the author being branded a “bad writer”. This video is a perfect example of how Merphy can take a serious topic and not only perfectly explain her point of view on the topic, but do so in a way that’s interesting and engaging to the viewer. The final video we’re going to discuss is her ‘Diverse Book Recommendations’ video, which was uploaded on May 19, 2018 (you can check out this video below). This has to be one of my personal all time favorite Merphy videos, because it discusses a very important topic not just in literature, but in media in general. Although we have seen a rise in books/movies/TV shows with diverse characters and situations, there is always room for even more diversity. In her video Merphy discusses underrated books that deal with: Physical Diversity, Racial Diversity, and Sexual Diversity. These books range from LGBTQ+ topics, to blind and deaf representation, and so much more. It is very exciting to see more Booktubers discussing diverse books/authors that aren’t always on the forefront of everyone’s minds, because this way you get to see a much wider range of experiences/perspectives which is what makes reading so amazing, and why we keep coming back story after story.

YouTube Wednesday: Beckah Shae, the artist that’s breathing new life into pop music

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to discuss an AMAZING singer that you’re going to be absolutely OBSESSED with!!! If you haven’t heard of Beckah Shae then prepare to be introduced to your favorite new singer. With years of experience in the Contemporary Christian genre, Beckah’ reputation has gained her award nominations (including a very prestigious Dove Award nomination, which is the highest award a Christian artist can earn), as well as a guest track on multiaward winning artist TobyMac’s 2010 album ‘Tonight’. Recently Beckah has been making waves on her YouTube channel by posting Christian versions of popular Pop songs. Not only is this an innovative and genius spin on the concept of covers, but has also allowed Beckah to show off her extremely impressive vocal range to a larger audience. So I know what you’re thinking now. You want to get to the music right? Ok then let’s jump into it. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

The first song that we’re going to talk about is Beckah’s cover of Ed Sheeran’s song ‘Shape of You’, which was uploaded on April 20th, 2017 (you can check out the video below). This was the 1st cover of Beckah’s that I ever saw and honestly it hooked me right from the beginning. I love how she took a song about someone finding the love they crave in a person and instead turning into a song about finding love in Jesus. Although Ed’s version is great, I really like how Beckah took a club song and made it an AMAZING worship song. The next song we’re going to talk about is Beckah’s cover of ‘Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato. This is the cover that will really show you just how much control and power Beckah’s voice has. This is definitely not an easy song to cover due to the incredibly high notes and long vocal runs the song has. This song definitely provides a round of vocal gymnastics for most vocalists however Beckah handles this challenge with ease. This is a cover that you will definitely want to blast from your car speakers this year!

Now we’re going to discuss Beckah’s cover of ‘Havana’ by Camilia Cabello. I thought that this was a really creative cover because of Beckah’s change of the word Havana for Hosanna which makes her transition of this track into a worship song appear flawless. It never does cease to amaze me just how creative Beckah is. The final song that we’re going to discuss is Beckah’s cover of ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, which features musician Damien Horne. This is an absolutely cover that is truly able to show how both artists are able to perfectly express the emotions and tenderness in this song and truly make a remarkable worship song out of it. Honestly I could sit here all day and explain why you should listen to Beckah’s music however her talent is something you must experience to fully understand, and recommend you do this immediately!

Moving on, let’s discuss Sloan’s ‘Summer 2016 AMV’, which was uploaded on September 20th, 2016. Let me just say that I LOVED this video! It was such a cool idea to do an AMV as sort of seasonal wrap up video. 5 smiley faces on this one Sloan! I feel as if the art of the AMV got lost somewhere around 2010 and I for one miss it. Bravo Sloan! Seriously though that AMV is really well done so y’all should check it out! Lastly we’re going to talk about her ‘I MET joey the anime man (and Akidearest)’ video  which was uploaded on February 15th, 2017 and is apart of her ‘Sloan Vlogs’ series. Now let’s just go ahead and admit it, we love it when YouTubers fangirl (or fanboy) over other YouTubers! It was so much fun to see Sloan freak out over possibly missing a chance to meet one of her favorite YouTubers, and then have a fangirl attack when she finally finds him. This video takes you on a true journey, and you’ll love every minute of it! It’s so cool to see that deep down Sloan is just abnormal crazy fangirl like the rest of us.

Monday Memos: A look at the impact Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s death has on the world 22 years later

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to discuss a very important, yet tragic day for the music industry.  March 31st marks the 22nd anniversary of Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s brutal murder. This event truly shook the world due tot he singer’s wide appeal & seemingly endless unfulfilled potential. Last week was the 20th anniversary of the Selena biopic, which starred a young Jennifer Lopez as the iconic singer. Throughout the movie we get to see key points in Selena’s professional and personal life, and just why this star had such a wide and loving fan base. To honor an entertainer that meant (and continues to mean) so much to people worldwide, I thought that it would be cool to take a look at her music as we explore all she did in the music industry, and all she could’ve done. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 
As a childhood performer in the early 80s, Selena faced much opposition in the male dominated Tejano music scene. Despite this obstacle, she steadily grew more popular, and eventually began to gain true notoriety in 1987 when she won Female Vocalist of the Year at the ‘Tejano Music Awards (which she won 9 consecutive times in career). She then signed with EMI Latin in 1989 and released her self-titled debut album. Her 2nd album ‘Ven Conmigo’ (released in 1990), produced fan favorite track ‘Baila Eata Cumbia’. Her next album, Entre a Mi Mundo (released in 1992) peaked at #1 on the U.S Regional Mexican Albums chart for 19 nonconsecutive weeks. This album contained fan favorites such as: Como La Flor, La Carcacha, and Selena’s 1st English language track ‘Missing My Baby’. Her 4th album ‘Live’ (released in 1993) won Best Mexican/American Album at the 1994 Grammy Awards, which made her the 1st Tejano artist to win this award. Her 5th album ‘Amor Prohibido’ (released in 1994) found great success and broke the U.S. Billboard Top Latin Albums chart record with a 96 consecutive week hold at the #1 spot. The album contained numerous songs that critics agree are some of Selena’s best, including: title track ‘Amor Prohibido’, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, Fotos y Recuerdos, among numerous others. The album received a surge of popularity following Selena’s death 1 year later, and is still tied for 2nd as the one of the best selling U.S. Latin albums of all time. Her final album ‘Dreaming of You’ was released posthumously in 1995. The album was meant to serve as Selena’s English cross-over album, but due to her death contained a mix of previously unreleased English and Spanish tracks. ‘Dreaming of You’ won Album of the Year at the 1996 Tejano Music Awards, and Female Pop Album of the Year at the 2nd Annual Billboard Latin Music Awards. The album received overall praise from critics due to tracks such as: title track ‘Dreaming of You’, ‘I Could Fall in Love’, and Wherever You Are (Donde Quinta Que Estes’ feat. the Barrio Boyzz.

In the span of 5 short years, Selena made a lasting impact on the music industry and still serves as an inspiration to artists across various genres. Her legacy also inspired the 1997 film ‘Selena’, which launched the career of triple threat Jennifer Lopez, and opened at #2 its’ opening weekend. Over 21,000 people auditioned for the role, making it the 2nd largest audition since Scarlett O’Hara in ‘Gone With The Wind’. In 2016 makeup company MAC announce its’ collaboration with Selena’s family in order to produce a Selena line of makeup. In 2017 Selena received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame among numerous other influential stars. It’s evident that she has become an immovable part of music history, due to the fact that even over 2 decades later we still find ourselves revisiting her music and story. Few artists can truly say that they have been able to capture the heart of the world in such a way, and it is obvious that we will continue to marvel over her for decades to come.

YouTube Wednesday: Take your seat on the nostalgia train as we review the 1st ‘Captain Underpants: The Epic First Movie’ trailer

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re taking another ride on the nostalgia train. If you were a kid in the late 90s then I have a treat for you! After millions of book sells, countless years, and A LOT of Marvel movies, we’re finally getting a movie about a very under appreciated superhero. Yup, today we’re talking about the ‘Captain Underpants: The Epic First Movie’ trailer. Whether you loved this series, or wished everyone would shut up about it, you can’t deny the legacy and reach of this series. When the 1st trailer for the movie dropped recently, I knew that we had to talk about it, so let’s get to the trailer. Ready? Ok, lets go!!!

First let’s get into a brief history lesson about this book series. Captain Undepants was 1st release in the U.S. on September 1, 1997 and ran through August 25, 2015. Over the years the series has been met with critical acclaim and controversy which has landed it at the top of several banned books lists (which honestly we all know only makes a book more popular). Now as for the trailer itself, we definitely see that the movie seems to follow the original source material very closely. Firstly we meet 4th grade best friends George Beard and Harold Hutchins who love pulling pranks at school, and writing about the superhero they created together, Captain Underpants. George and Harold are known to be troublemakers at their school, much to the dismay of the evil Principal Benny Krupp. When George and Harold get in trouble one day, they hypnotize Principal Krupp and he starts to believe that he is Captain Underpants, thus our adventure begins. With the voice talents of stars such as: Kevin Hart (who honestly probably doesn’t need an introduction), Ed Helms (known for his work on ‘The Office’ as well as ‘The Hangover’ movie series, Nick Kroll (who most recently worked on the highly successful 2016 adult animation movie ‘Sausage Party’), this movie is definitely expected to be a huge success. So what do you think people of the internet? Will ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic movie be a success or a laughable flop? I guess we’ll find out on June 2nd just how far the nostalgia train will ride
