Who is excited for 2019? Everyone hopes for a great new year; making more memories, trying new foods, and going on adventures. Well, this new year there are many things coming up that you do NOT want to miss!

Netflix is getting more and more popular every day. This year, they will be releasing new seasons of all of your favorite shows. On January 1, season three of A Series of Unfortunate Events, which is a comedy about three orphans trying to figure out their parent’s death, will be released. The murder mystery show, True Detective, will also release its third season on January 3. Finally, season five of Gotham, which is a live-action television show based off of Batman, will be on our screens.

Along with new Netflix seasons coming out, be on the lookout for sequels of your favorite movies to hit the screen! This includes movies such as How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame. Specifically, Disney will be having a lineup of recreated movies from our childhood. Movies like Dumbo, Toy Story 4, Aladdin, and Frozen 2 will all be in theaters. Mark your calendars for July 19 as The Lion King is coming back to life! Many of our twitters have been trolling with previews and trailers for the big release this summer. Junior Shamari Vann-Montgomery said, “I don’t want to see Mufasa die, but I’m really excited to watch The Lion King. You’re never too young to watch those movies.”

Every year there are great new movies and TV shows, but there are also a couple of random things going on that you are going to want to stay tuned on. On February 3, the 53rd Super Bowl will be played. As the teams are still playing for their spot in the championship, it has been announced that Maroon 5 will be the star of the halftime show! Along with that, other big events going on include Meghan and Harry welcoming the royal baby, Colton Underwood as the newest Bachelor, and The Spice Girls reunion- so be on the lookout for new songs! There are lots of other artists sharing new music this year, including Carly Rae Jepsen, The Weeknd, Adele, Chance the Rapper, and Miley Cyrus.

Keep your eye out for all the new movies, songs, albums, TV series, and much more that will be out this year! This year will be a great one, and because of all new entertainment, at least our 2019 will be filled with amazing music and movies!
