Episode 71: Geek Girl in the News: Animal Crossing, Brie Larson is too pure for this world, and Celebs being Awesome!

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: “YAY” or “OMG I can’t believe that.”

The latest and greatest geek girl news from March 2020 covers the world’s obsession with Animal Crossing, films getting their released dates pushed back, Brie Larson being a true gem, Thor: Love and Thunder’s new villain (you might be surprised!), and all these famous people being pretty awesome during this pandemic, especially Elton John and John Krasinski!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you know that Nintendo released the latest Animal Crossing for the Switch. Are you O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D!? Because we are. Yes – WE – Amanda predicted she’d have Animal Crossing by the time this episode releases, and what do you know – she does! This is the perfect CUTE game to obsess over with your friends. So good for all this social distancing we need to do right now, right!?

Some pop culture news that’s a bit of a bummer, but so many movie release dates are getting pushed back. Like Wonder Woman, which was due to be released in June has been rescheduled for August! There’s also talk about doing some big streaming releases instead of red carpet premiers – wouldn’t that be wild!? We think doing streaming releases is an awesome way for the film to still make money while keeping to the launch schedule and giving people something amazing and fun to look forward to! Hopefully Black Widow, which is releasing in early May (as of recording) will do this!!

So, really – is there any celeb out there cuter and more perf than Brie Larson? DIDN’T THINK SO. She’s being vocal about the awesome women in her circle of support and encouraging other women to raise each other up. HEAR FREAKING HERE, Brie! Our new motto is officially “BE MORE BRIE”. Ya dig?

And lastly, we’re talking about how all these famous people are being brilliant in this time of crisis. Because isn’t that what they’re there for? To provide the masses laughs and love and entertainment? THANK YOU so much to people like Elton John, who’s orchestrating incredible living room concerts, all those artists on Insta hopping on for impromptu live concerts, and – get ready to sob – John Krasinski and his new “Some Good News” series which talks about, well, good news – ONLY!

Never been more appreciative of the celebs than we are right now. Except Gal Gadot encouraging others to sing ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon. You can keep that to yourself, kthanks.
