Get pumped for the Galaga-based animated series updates, find out how to "catch 'em all" with a Pokémon marathon, and return to Arendelle in Frozen 2.

Galaga fans, get excited. We've got some news about the upcoming series Galaga Chronicles, which is based on the iconic video game Galaga. According to Deadline, the project has added animation studio ShadowMachine (BoJack Horseman, Robot Chicken, Final Space) along with writer-producer Roberto Orci (Transformers, Star Trek, Sleepy Hollow), to the team. Galaga Chronicles was first announced in July 2017 and is currently looking for distribution with the hope of being released in late 2019/early 2020. No word yet on exactly what the storyline will be of the 12-episode series.

Clear your calendar! You've been trying to "catch 'em all" for the past 23 years, and now it's possible. Twitch will soon be streaming every single episode of Pokémon, plus the movies. That's right, starting next week Twitch is streaming over 1,000 episodes of Pokémon, plus 16 movies. It will only take you 10 months straight of Pokémon enjoyment to watch 'em all. Starting at 10 a.m. PT on August 27, you can join in the marathon, which will be streamed in six different languages. You can even catch Pokémon as you watch using the Twitch Presents: Pokémon Badge Collector. All the details can be found on Twitch's official blog.

Just last month we found out Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Sterling K. Brown (Black Panther) were headed to Arendelle for Frozen 2, and now we've got a new writer jumping on the sled. According to Screen Rant, Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures) will now co-write the project with Jennifer Lee, who wrote the first Frozen film. Lee is also co-directing Frozen 2 and recently took on the job as Disney Animation's chief creative officer. So Schroeder, who most recently co-wrote Christopher Robin, is joining the project to assist. It's unclear exactly what the story of the sequel will be, but we know the three main human characters (plus Olaf) are returning once again. So you better start prepping your answer to the age-old question "Do you wanna build a snowman?" for November 2019.
