Welcome to your Monday Pop Culture Fix, friends! I hope your week is off to a chill start!
+ Spephanie Beatriz is finally voicing a leading Disney character! She’ll play Maribel, the only non-magical member of her family/the entire town in the upcoming Encanto. I cannot wait!
+ Our TV Team has been very excited for Benedetta ever since it was announced, and once we read Gregory Ellwood’s review from Cannes, we kind of got hysterical with anticipation: “Benedetta is the lesbian visions of god camp melodrama you’ve been waiting for! It’s an extravaganza!”
+ The trailer for Ryan Murphy’s documentary about Exodus International, the largest gay conversion therapy group in U.S. history, is here and, um, if you grew up evangelical like me it’s pretty fucking intense.
+ Hmm. Well.
+ Paramount+ is getting one of its biggest viewership boots from an unlikely source: Legend of Korra fans!
