Fandom Fans, it’s funny to meet you here. Come here often? Just kidding, we know you do. This is our last roundup for September, and what a month it has been. But, we know that October not only brings the fall season, but even more Fandom goodness. This week in fandom has been a bit slow, but we still found some great stories to share. Let’s make our last roundup in September a good one.
Visit The Hundred Acre Woods IRL!
The dreamlike world of Winnie the Pooh has always seemed to be the most relaxing place to vacation. Now you can spend the night with Winnie the Pooh. Kim Raymond, the famous bear illustrator, is hosting two overnight stays at the custom-built “Bearbnb” on the very site that inspired the fictional Hundred Acre Wood in England to celebrate the 95th anniversary of Pooh’s creation by writer AA Milne. The house will be for rent on September 24th and 25th for approximately $ 130 per night. The chalet can accommodate four people, with one double bed and two smaller loft beds. Guests will visit the area of Ashdown Forest in East Sussex that inspired the wooden frame of the books. Sounds like a good Tiggerific time!
Hollywood on strike?
The future of upcoming films could be in jeopardy if film crew workers decide to strike. The leaders of the International Alliance of Theatrical Workers and the Alliance of Film and Television Producers failed to agree on a new contract. If tens of thousands of workers in the entertainment industry decide to go on strike with a strike, productions on many important projects will stop until workers on film crews agree on a contract. they are comfortable with. The Alliance of Motion Pictures feels they have already “listened and dealt with” many requests from team workers, but the other side did not share that sentiment. We will continue to follow this story for future developments.
Bond Shoots and Misses
Daniel Craig, who is best known for his role as James Bond, attempted to make a “waking” statement during his interview with Radio Times. 007 shared her thoughts on a woman taking over the famous spy franchise, “The answer is very simple… There should just be better roles for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a role as good as James Bond, but for a woman? ” Some say Craig was trying to express that women shouldn’t have to settle for Bond, while some media chose to play the statement out to make the actor appear sexist and racist. Fans of the Bond actor have taken to Twitter to defend him.

The House of the Mouse has filed a lawsuit against Ditko’s estate to retain copyright ownership. Disney states in its lawsuit, Marvel assigned Lieber (Lawrence D. Lieber, 89, a comic book author) stories to write, had the right to exercise control over Lieber’s contributions, and paid Lieber a per page rate for his contributions. ” Disney’s complaint against Mr. Lieber says these conditions make his contributions “Work made for remuneration, to which the provisions of the Copyright Act do not apply”.
