Pagan News Beagle: Airy Monday, June 13

Disney debuts their new film about Polynesian mythology. Duncan Jones talks about his fantasy film Warcraft. And a new Japanese series about a teenage witch gets a look from Westerners. It's Airy Monday, our weekly segment on magic and religion in popular culture! All thsi and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

After adapting classic European fairy tales like Snow White and Rapunzel, Disney now looks to be trying something different. In the past few days, Disney released the first trailer for their new film Moana, which adapts Polynesian mythology for the big screen.

Last Friday, the fantasy film Warcraft debuted worldwide. To the players of the massively-multiplayer online game World of Warcraft, the world is already a familiar one. But if you are not a player or have questions, the director Duncan Jones is happy to answer them.

The Dark Souls serious has been popular and immensely profitable for From Software since it began years ago. But now that they've released a third game, the developer says they have no real interest in making a third one. Instead, their ambitions lay elsewhere.

George Lucas is best known for creating Star Wars. At a distant second he's probably known for co-creating Indiana Jones. But Lucas once also tried his hand at epic fantasy, with the weird and quirky Willow. At, Leigh Butler remembers the film.

Do you like Sabrina the Teenage Witch? What about Kiki's Delivery Service? If the answer to either question is yes then you might be interested in checking out The Flying Witch, a new animated series from Japan about a teenage witch who moves to northern Honshu to train in magic.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.

    Thanks for the story about "The Flying Witch". I've just finished watching the second episode. It reminds me of "Natsume's Book of Friends" but it's not as bitter-sweet.
