12 Reboots Of TV Shows And Movies That Have Fans Excited

With the success of "Fuller House" and "Maleficent," studios are dusting off old properties and giving them a new outlook.


The definition of the word “reboot” is, the remake of a television show or film, with a refreshed or different viewpoint. In recent years, several reboots of famous movies and TV shows have been released, like “Fuller House,” and “Maleficent.” Here are some more reboots of TV shows and movies that fans are looking forward to.

1. “Ghostbusters” (July 16, 2016)

This summer, audiences will watch a continuation of the “Ghostbusters” series, which started with the first movie in 1984. This rebooted version will contain a cast of female Ghostbusters, which has gained some controversy for the film.

2. “Batman” (TBD)

After his first time portraying The Dark Knight in “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Ben Affleck was announced to be the director and one of the writers for the new solo Batman movie. Although the reviews for “Batman V. Superman” were mixed, the critics agreed that Affleck’s portrayal of Batman was one of the stronger parts of the film. The new “Batman” film is set to be released within the next five years.

3. “Power Rangers” (March 24, 2017)

With the recent release of new costume photos, the excitement for the new “Power Ranger” film is in full swing. The film is a more mature reboot of the 1990s TV show, and will be released next spring.

4. “Cruella” (TBD)

Similar to the movie “Maleficent,” “Cruella” will follow one of Disney’s most famous villains and bring them in as a protagonist. Emma Stone is in negotiations to play the fur wearing villainess in her self titled film. Cruella de Vil was first seen in the 1961 animated film “101 Dalmatians,” and was then portrayed by actress Glenn Close in the 1996 live action film.

5. “Beauty and the Beast” (March 17, 2017)

Another Disney classic is getting the live action treatment, with “Beauty and the Beast,” which, is slated to be in theaters next spring. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens will star as the title characters.

6. “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (July 7, 2017)

After two previous attempts of adapting the character, Spider-Man has found a new home with Marvel Studios. Already making his first appearance in the recently released “Captain America: Civil War,” British actor Tom Holland will be returning at Spider-Man in his first solo film set to be released in the summer of 2017.

7. “Gilmore Girls” (2016)

With the success of the “Full House” reunion, other favorite shows are coming back with updates on fan favorites. The “Gilmore Girls” revival is slated to be released on Netflix around Christmas 2016, and most of the original cast will be returning. The revival will contain four 90 minute episodes.

8. “Prison Break” (2017)

The hit Fox Network television show is set to return in early 2017. The reunion will take place where the last season of the show left off, and the original cast will be returning, along with some fresh faces.

9. “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” (TBD)

Last summer, news of a reboot of the 1990s television series was found by many sources. The reboot is currently in the very early stages, and Will Smith is set to return as a producer. Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment, is looking to come up with a fresh idea for the “fish out of water” tale.

10. “DuckTales” (2017)

In 2017, Disney XD will premiere a reboot of the famous late 1980s cartoon that followed the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie. At their annual Disney convention, D23, Disney released new photos of the reboot.

11. “Star Trek” (2017)

The reboot of the classic Sci-Fi series will premiere on CBS in January 2017 and has found a captain in “Hannibal” and “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller. Fuller got his start in television as a writer for “Star Trek” spin off “Star Trek: Voyager,” so giving him the role of executive producer and co-creator will be fitting. Alex Kurtzman, who also wrote for the recent “Star Trek” films, will also serve as the co-creator.

12. “Charmed” (TBD)

Former star Alyssa Milano revealed that CBS is in the early stages of development for a reboot of the popular 1990s television series. Although none of the original cast will be involved with the reboot, they have given their support to the reimagining of the television series.

With these new reboots being released, fans of all sorts of movies and tv shows have a lot to look forward to.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
