Onward is the first Disney movie to star a character of the LGBT community and some people are happy about it while others are upset.

Specter is a cop and has a girlfriend who has a daughter. She discusses parenting difficulties with the two main characters, Ian and Barley Lightfoot. Middle East countries were not happy about the LGBT reference and they have decided to censor that scene.

The movie onward is an animated film and it takes place in a fantasy world. This fantasy world is inhabited by elves, trolls, centaurs, minotaurs, and other magical creatures who live like humans do in a world full of technology. The technology in this world replaced all forms of magic and there is no hope of magic coming back. However, this all changes when Ian Lightfoot receives a gift by his mother that his long-dead father left for him. The gift consists of a spell that would bring his father back to life for a day. However, the spell was not very successful because Ian and his brother were only able to get half of his father to appear. Ian and his brother go on a very special quest to complete the spell before time runs out and they are unable to see their father. 

Onward is a great movie to watch with your family and it is now in theaters.

This sequel shows the continuation of her life after the love letters she wrote as a child, are mailed to her former crushes. Such leads to her getting to know one of the main characters, Peter Kavinsky. 

Throughout the movie, she begins experiencing her new ‘dating life’ with Peter, until another boy from her past, one of which she wrote a letter to, returns and as do her feelings. She becomes confused as to who she truly wants to be with, and whether it is possible to be in love with two boys- her boyfriend and her longtime crush.

It has been a year since Harry Styles was last seen on stage. The Met Gala 2019 host went MIA on all social media platforms until October 10 when he announced the release of his new single Lights Up. After almost a month of releasing Lights Up the former One Direction member announced both the name and release date of his sophomore album, captioning a picture on Instagram he wrote, “FINE LINE. THE ALBUM. DEC 13”. 

 As if fans were not already going crazy with the release of his album, Styles announced a one night show at the Forum on Dec. 13. Thousands were left without a ticket after scalpers bought the $25 tickets and started reselling them for outrageous prices, the highest going up to $9,900. 

Everything changed for the fandom yesterday though. Harry Styles and his team released tour dates for both the European and North American legs of the tour. The openers for the North American tour are Koffee and Jenny Lewis while the European shows will be expecting King Princess.

Tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster for the North American Tour on Monday at 10:00 am for American Express cardholders and verified fans, ending on Thursday Nov. 21. While the general sale starts Friday, Nov. 22nd at 10:00 am.

Elan Bernardo, SAS junior and Harry Styles fanatic, said, “I feel like his influence was very present in our childhood. I wanted to go to the last tour, but couldn’t.”
