11 Fun Things to Look Forward to in 2017 ...


I don't know about you, but I am so glad the dumpster fire that was 2016 is over, and we can start a new year with some fantastic things on the horizon. What am I so excited about, you ask? Here are a few of the things I already can't wait for in 2017.

Beauty & the Beast

Seriously, I've been excited about this since those stills were released last year... Emma Watson as Belle? Josh Gad as LeFou? I'm in... in the theater on March 17, with my squad, my popcorn, my soda, my candy, and my feels.


New Girl-Power Music

hair, hairstyle, afro, GIRL, OMER, I've missed Lorde, and Katy Perry, and Fergie, and Shania Twain, and Iggy Azalea... and all of the other kick-ass women in music who plan to drop an album in 2017. Who else just can't wait?



nose, hairstyle, course, not., Ha! Not that kind of Eclipse! On August 21, most of the southern States will be dark for a few minutes during the day due to a super-cool total solar eclipse, the first once since 1918. For all the science, visit eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov and then maybe re-read the Twilight books, because why not?


Wonder Woman

It's about time this she-ro got her own mega-budget, special effects blockbuster, and it'll finally be here this June. How many littles do you think will dress as Wonder Woman this Halloween? ALL OF THEM. Sorry, Elsa.


More of Our Fave TV Shows

adventure, Finally! We get Season 2 of Stranger Things (OMG, can't WAIT!), Season 7 of GoT, and WAIT! WHAT?! Season 9 of Curb Your Enthusiasm.


More of Our Fave Movies

darkness, screenshot, cave, formation, oionritydeopl, Okay, so Beauty and the Beast and Wonder Woman both def deserved their own entries, but there are loads of other sequels and remakes on their way in 2017, including another Pirates of the Caribbean, Thor, Jumanji, and X-Men movie. Oh, yeah... and no biggie, just another Star Wars film, too, right around Christmas. Swoon!


Adele and... Eminem

screenshot, INVIZUALS.TUMBLR.COM, If you thought 2016 was a little weird, with some politics and odd bedfellows and whatnot, just wait: this year, Adele and Marshall Mathers are releasing some music, TOGETHER. I am so, so excited!


Nintendo Switch

screenshot, fictional character, interaction, Oh my gosh, this looks so cool! It's a tablet-looking game system that allows you to play games on your Switch and on your TV at the same time...you can "switch" back and forth... and it's due out in March.



Toy Story, text, font, logo, circle, No worries, I'm not about to get political, but can I just say how thrilled I am that Pixar's next movie, due out this fall, features an all-Latino cast? Hola, Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt (in animated form, of course).



est, My cell service rarely hit 4G, and in 2017, some of us will already start to see 5G connectivity. Zoom zoom your data, right? Why didn't they have this when I was trying to catch Pokemon this past summer?!


Diana: the Fashion Story

hair, face, person, woman, eyebrow, It doesn't seem possible, but this year is the 20th anniversary of Princess Di's passing, and to mark her legacy and remember her with love, Kensington Palace will be exhibiting some of her celebrated, trend-setting wardrobe this spring.
