Power Rangers Have New Alpha 5 Movie

power-rangersQuick note to bring you up to speed on Power Rangers news: “IGN has revealed new concept art for Power Rangers’ updated take on Alpha 5, Zordon and the Rangers’ easily panicked but trusty robotic sidekick in the show. Except this time the character, voiced by Bill Hader, isn’t actually a robot. Instead, Alpha is an actual alien, complete with bizarre tentacled eyes and similarly textured armor to the suits the Rangers wear when they’re morphed up—a mix of organic and inorganic parts.”

Scientists: Time Travellers Could Use Parallel Dimensions To Visit Past

Well there you have it – science has spoken! “There are multiple timelines playing out in parallel universes, according to a team of researchers. The sensational claim was made by a team of physicists, who believe that the parallel universes can all affect one another. Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr. Michael Hall, from Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, claim that the idea of parallel universes is more than just science fiction. Fellow researcher Dr. Dirk-Andre Deckert, from the University of California, helped further the researchers’ theory, which goes against almost all conventional understanding of space and time.” Thinking of booking yourself a trip to the past?

We Support Star Power Illustrated Comic Kickstarter

twitter.com

twitter.com

This post is actually 1 in 3: First, we want to announce our support for the Star Power illustrated comic. Second, we’re going to throw a little financial support behind the Star Power and the Mystery of the Zel Gux Dynasty Kickstarter. Third, this post will also act as book 19/52 for our 52 books in 52 weeks project. So without further ado, let’s look at STAR POWER!

Star Power follows the cosmic adventures of astronomer turned superhero, Danica Maris. The comic was launched online at starpowercomic.com in 2013 and has consistently been updating pages every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (barring the rare instance where the artomatic Garth breaks down and needs to be rebuilt). Danica’s story is one of adventure, heroics, and space. Because space is awesome. ”

The Kickstarter is unfortunately ending very soon for Star Power and the Mystery of the Zel Gux Dynasty. Somehow we didn’t get word of this until the last minute. But there’s still a little time to throw your support their way and even if you miss it, it’s certain there will be more Kickstarter campaigns. In the meantime have a look at the rest of this article below the fold, including images and a video.

Don’t Expect To See A Rogue Two

This makes sense if you think about it because how long can the story go on between where the rebels obtain the Death Star plans and launch their attack? Additionally, it appears the Death Star is mostly finished in this story, so it’s first use – Alderaan, would be shortly after. “In the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy sets the record straight and confirms they will not make a Rogue One sequel, which she jokingly refers to as Rogue Two. Visual effects legend John Knoll states that Rogue One was always intended to be a self-contained film, even though it is actually a prequel to A New Hope. And Rogue One director Gareth Edwards clarifies further saying if you were to have a sequel to Rogue One,  “that sequel will be directed by George Lucas,” a reference to that first Star Wars film.” Read more here
