Hades Is Pretty Mad in First Look at Cheyenne Jackson's New Descendants 3 Villain

There's a new big threat in Auradon.  Disney offered the first official look at Hades (Cheyenne Jackson) in this summer's Descendants 3 during its FanFest event on Saturday, and the guy is really, really mad. That's understandable after he's been imprisoned with the other bad guys, especially since he used to be lord of the underworld.  In the teaser, he claims he's been waiting, watching, and planning for the right time to make his move, and now only that pesky team of VKs stands in the way of taking his revenge on the royals across the pond.  Cheyenne Jackson and fellow stars Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, Anna Cathcart, and Jadah Marie helped...

It's (still) goin' down. E! News has a sneak peek at the latest trailer for Under the Sea: A Descendants Short Story, airing tonight on Disney Channel at 9 p.m. When the 10-minute special was announced earlier this month, fans saw Mal (Dove Cameron) encountering Dizzy (Anna Cathcart) on the beach.

How ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Was Influenced by John Hughes, but With Less Problematic Asian Representation

How ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Was Influenced by John Hughes, but With Less Problematic Asian Representation
John Hughes’ classic teen rom-com “Sixteen Candles” holds a place of honor in author Jenny Han’s novel “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Not only does it inform protagonist Lara Jean Song Covey’s concept of romance, but it also plays an integral part of her relationship with a boy. It’s only fitting that Susan Johnson (“Carrie Pilby”) also cites Hughes as an influence and inspiration when it came to directing the adaptation for Netflix.

“I grew up with the John Hughes movies, and those were very important to me as a teenager,” said Johnson in an interview with IndieWire. “I love the challenge of making a movie that wasn’t full of angst and judgment and anger.”

In “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” awkward teenager Lara Jean (Lana Condor) has a life-changing junior year when the boys she once had secret crushes on learn of her feelings.

Film Review: Netflix’s ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’

  • Variety
If John Hughes were alive today, he might very well make a movie like “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” which doesn’t talk down to its audience about subjects such as sex and dating, but instead treats them as young adults, demonstrating how anyone’s initial attempts at romance are like learning to walk: We’re all a little bit wobbly at first. Conceived as a kind of “Sixteen Candles” for the Snapchat generation, this endearing Netflix Original offers an honest, unsentimental take on the mating lives of hormone-addled high school students, earning extra points for casting Asian-American actress Lana Condor in what would have been the Molly Ringwald role.

As Ringwald herself pointed out in a courageous New Yorker essay last April, even Hughes — whom an entire generation of audiences and critics have since canonized as the poet laureate of American adolescence — had his blind spots,

‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Review: Netflix Continues to Dominate Teen Rom-Coms With Sweet Jenny Han Adaptation
Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) has a problem with her crushes: she hides them. That character trait reveals itself in two very different ways in Susan Johnson’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” the “Carrie Pilby” director’s spin on Jenny Han’s Ya novel of the same name.

First, Lara Jean buries her emotions deep, deep down, refusing to get too close to anyone (especially cute boys she likes) beyond the close confines of her family. Then, when that becomes too much to bear, she lets loose by penning love letters to her dearest crushes, which she hides away in her closet. So what happens when those letters are let out into the world?

Adapted (and condensed) for the screen by screenwriter Sofia Alvarez, Han’s trilogy of novels trace what happens when her secrets are revealed to the world, a nightmare for any teenager but

‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ First Trailer: Jenny Han’s Bestselling Ya Series Gets an Adorable Netflix Adaptation
Lara Jean Song Covey (Lana Condor) has a habit — whenever she has a crush, she writes a letter to the object of her affection. So far, the shy teenager has five such letters, all for five different guys, and they’re resting quietly in a secret hatbox she keeps tucked away in her closet. Until, of course, they’re not.

“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” based on Jenny Han’s bestselling novel of the same name, is Netflix’s latest dip into the deep waters of Ya rom-coms, and follows Lara Jean as she attempts to navigate the fallout of her (secret! obviously!) letters going missing and then turning up in the hands of the very crushes that first inspired them.
