Winter 2022 Film & TV Tie Ins

By Kat La Mantia | October 12 2022 | GeneralPop CultureBlog

Holiday blockbusters are coming! 

Superheroes, beloved children’s characters, and new animated adventures are making their way to screens this winter! We’ve highlighted some of our most-anticipated movies and shows below, but make sure to check out the full winter movie and TV title list here.


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever


After the sudden and deeply-felt loss of Chadwick Boseman, this Black Panther sequel will be packing an even more emotional punch than the first. We have plenty of Black Panther titles to help you catch up before the movie release on November 11, including children’s titles, a gold foil-stamped Penguin Classics Marvel Collection of the Black Panther comics, and Dreams of Wakanda, an essay collection by some of today’s most recognizable authors reflecting on the enormous cultural impact of Black Panther.


Avatar: The Way of Water


Thirteen years after the first Avatar broke box office records, the sequel finally makes its way into theatres this December! For those entranced by James Cameron’s world of Pandora, we have books highlighting the movie art, as well as activity books and graphic novels which serve as a direct prequel to the story in The Way of Water.


Black Adam


I don’t know about you, but if The Rock is in a movie, I buy a ticket. This October, he stars as the titular Black Adam, an outlaw hero wielding ancient magic to exact his own form of vigilante justice. It’s a new superhero blockbuster from DC, and with a stellar cast including Viola Davis, Pierce Brosnan, and Noah Centineo, it promises to be a great time.


Matilda the Musical


If you haven’t been able to catch the musical version of Matilda live, never fear. Netflix is adapting the musical for the screen, breathing new life into a beloved character. Grab Roald Dahl’s original novel for any young readers in your life, or for the already initiated, explore our Matilda Mad Libs and sticker books!


Dragon Age: Absolution


Netflix’s new animated series, Dragon Age: Absolution, follows in the footsteps of World of Warcraft and Halo in adapting video games to movies and television shows. And like both of those franchises, Dragon Age has already been expanded into a vast universe beyond the original games. If you haven’t already checked out the Dragon Age graphic novels, now is a great time to catch up before the show drops in December!
