So It Turns Out That “Mulan” Predicted “Bird Box”?????

By now, you as a member of society have most likely seen the classic Disney animated film, Mulan.

And you’ve probably heard or seen something about Bird Box, the new Netflix thriller starring Sandra Bullock (warning: spoilers ahead!)

In Bird Box, Sandra Bullock plays a woman who has to fend for her family in an apocalyptic world — all while blindfolded.

And throughout movie, she keeps birds with her to help her stay safe.

So, we’ve got a blindfolded lady navigating a dangerous world, with the help of a specific type of animal in a little cage. Sound familiar??

OF COURSE IT DOES! BECAUSE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS IN MULAN YOU GUYS!!!!

In one of the movie’s earliest and best scenes, we watch Mulan’s grandmother attempt to prove that Cri-Kee is indeed a “lucky cricket” by keeping him in a little cage, covering her eyes, and crossing a busy street.

Thanks to Cri-Kee’s supernatural powers, chaos ensues — but Grandmother Fa emerges from the scene fully unharmed.

JUST AS SANDRA BULLOCK ESCAPES FROM THE CREATURES, ALSO UNSCATHED:


Netflix

Okay, maybe she got a little scathed.

But hey, even this Disney account called out the parallels in both plotlines…

Also, ICYMI, there’s another area of overlap between the Mulan and Bird Box universes: B.D. Wong!


Netflix

in Bird Box, he plays Greg, the owner of the house where everyone takes refuge…

If you happened to wonder why Greg’s voice sounded so familiar, it’s because Wong also did the voice for a certain captain Li Shang!

So there you have it: Bird Box and Mulan are basically a crossover event waiting to happen…

But in the meantime, let’s give up for Grandmother Fa: family matriarch, keeper of lucky crickets, and original champion of the Bird Box Challenge…

And also for B.D. Wong for lending his talents to two extremely calm, cool, and collected characters!


Netflix, Disney

RIP GREG UGH IT WASN’T FAIR

Here Are The 14 Things That Every Muggle Should Know Before Seeing “The Crimes Of Grindelwald”

1.

The movie’s timeline takes place about one year after the events of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.


Warner Pictures

In 1927, to be exact.

2.

Unlike Fantastic Beasts, though, most of this sequel is set in Europe.


Warner Pictures

3.

And it portrays what the magical world is like in France.


Warner Pictures

4.

As its title implies, this movie’s plot revolves around Grindelwald, who, as we found out in Fantastic Beasts, is one of the most dangerous wizards in history.


Warner Pictures

5.

In the books, we know Grindelwald as the onetime owner of the all-powerful Elder Wand and a former close friend of Albus Dumbledore.


Warner Pictures

6.

And even though we basically have a whole new cast of new characters, there will still be plenty of references to the Harry Potter books.


Warner Pictures

7.

Among the characters you’ll **sort of** recognize: Dumbledore, except he’s a young professor and like…really dapper.


Warner Pictures

8.

We also finally uncover the backstory of Nagini, who we only knew before as Lord Voldemort’s snake.


Warner Pictures

Turns out she’s a lady???

9.

We also get a lot of fun backstories on powerful wizarding families, including the Lestranges, the Dumbledores, and Scamanders.


Warner Pictures

10.

But, since this **is** a Fantastic Beasts sequel, there are still tons of the same magical animals we saw in the first movie…


Warner Pictures

11.

And the expected amount of amazing special effects, given that this **is** the Harry Potter franchise we’re talking about, after all.


Warner Pictures

12.

You should also know, of course, that the casting of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald has always been a pretty big controversy.


Eamonn M. Mccormack / Getty Images

The actor has been accused of physical and emotional abuse, and he has denied the allegations. J. K. Rowling and director David Yates have since issued a statement in support of Depp’s casting.

13.

If you can’t get enough of the wizarding world this round, don’t worry — Fantastic Beasts 3 is already planned for 2020.


Warner Pictures

14.

And in total, there will be five films in the Fantastic Beasts franchise…


Warner Pictures

Which means the magic basically never has to end!!
