Besides books, there’s plenty of other stuff coming next year that should make it a fun year. Here’s a few music albums, movies, tv show stuff and other things I can’t wait for. These won’t be in chronological order and the dates can change at any time, but I hope they don’t 🙂

Black Panther

February 16th

This guy was my favorite character in Captain America: Civil War and since I never read any comics, I don’t know this guy’s origin story. But the trailer looks amazing to see African culture and another superhero get the spotlight before Infinity War. I’m hoping this one is up there with Doctor Strange.

A Wrinkle in Time

March 9th

I remember reading this book in elementary school and liking it, but since it’s been so long, I only remember a couple character names. But this looks amazing! It’s purely visually stunning like other popular movies like Avatar, Moulin Rogue and Big Fish in the past. Plus the casting seems to be a great variety. While I’m not sure if I’ll be able to re-read the book before this comes out, I’m hoping this will be another movie favorite of next year.

Tomb Raider

When I found they were doing a movie reboot of this video game franchise, I was wondering who could replace Angelina Jolie as the title character? Well this trailer shows that Alicia Vikander is going to kick some butt next year! I like that is going in the direction of the newer games that have been coming out. It looks thrilling and with great action and acting from Vikander.

Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet

While there’s no official trailer yet, I’m glad they’re going back to do a sequel to the original, fun and imaginative movie. When Disney talked about it at D23, they talked about how all the original Disney princess voice actresses will be in this movie! So Paige O’Hara (Belle), Linda Larkin (Jasmine), Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) and all the others are coming back for a special scene in the movie Disney has said is truly great. Hopefully the date doesn’t get pushed back and we can enjoy more video game style fun in the sequel.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

A movie about Han Solo when he was younger? Count me in! Who doesn’t love Harrison Ford in the original trilogy? The casting sounds great and with Ron Howard directing, this has major potential. While I didn’t completely love Rogue One, I’m hoping this upcoming anthology movie is better than that one. Now they just need to get Ewan McGregor to go back and be Obi Wan again and things will be fine 🙂

Music Albums

Kamelot

The band has been saying for a little while now that their follow up album to 2015 Haven will be most likely in the spring of next year! With following them on Twitter, it’s been exciting to hear them working the studio, teasing temporary song titles and buying a ticket for when they come to my town next year. If this new album is gonna be as amazing as their other albums have, it’s gonna be a good year!

Nightwish

Yep, another album for them next year! But, it’s a bit different. The band celebrates 20 years in the music business this year and they’re releasing an album called Decades. They will be doing a world tour next year, with a special set list for that tour only which sounds amazing! I’ve heard that they will be doing old songs in a very new way, but it’s still kind of under wraps of more details. But other way, I just can’t wait for whatever this amazing band puts out next! 🙂

Josh Groban (Hopefully)

I saw on his Twitter page not too long ago that this guy will finally have another album out! I can’t find the tweet (much digging) but I hope it’s true! Since I was 13 and seeing him twice live, I have loved this guy’s music for over a decade. I’ve been needing a new album by him for a while now 🙂

There’s the short list of other stuff I can’t wait for this year. What movies are you excited for? What music albums are you dying to get/listen to?
