The Wednesday blu-ray doesn't have the "[barely restrained seething]" subtitle... That's a Netflix-only feature... The disc has the much less inspired "[breath trembling]". It's not all advantages to owning the disc...

I loved how that subtitle captured Jenna's Wednesday.

I can't wait for season two! But I'll have to...

It's a shame Emma didn't get to use her werewolf training this season, maybe next? Wednesday got knocked unconscious a disconcerting amount of times, it's a good thing she has Goody now, might help with the healing.

It's weird how they seemed to have special events every single day, Harvest Festival, Outreach Day, Poe Cup, Raven Dance, Parents Day, etc. Hardly any actual lessons seemed to be happening. Still, instead of more school, I'm hoping for the next season to be set outside the school. And have more Goody Addams, I like a powerful witch.

They managed to make geoblocking of films even more irritating: I get a specific mail from Amazon Prime Video, telling me that Finestkind with Jenna Ortega is now available for rent. That's great, because I still want to see it, since Paramount+/SkyShowtime is not carrying that film in my country.

I go to their page, only to be met with the popup that this film is not available in my location.

Then why send me that email?!

Anyway, dear Americans, Finestkind is available for rent in your country!

Saw Miller's Girl again in the cinema (who knows when I'll see it again) and again of course impressed by Jenna Ortega. Wrote about it with major spoilers in the next post (copied from letterboxd).

The blu-ray for Wednesday arrived today! On Wednesday. Starting my umpteenth watch-through.

With recently the great experience of watching Miller's Girl on the big screen and now eight episodes of brilliance to see, these are really Jenna days...


#JennaOrtega #Wednesday

in reply to Gidi Kroon

We're getting the full opening credits in episode one. I think on Netflix we only got them on two episodes and not the first one. Or do I misremember?

Edit: I do misremember. Episode two has the shortened opening credits.

We all know the level of detail Jenna puts in her performances, for Wednesday she got formal fencing and cello training, but on her Instagram posts of that time you can see she also had a mechanical typewriter in her apartment back in Romania. In this opening episode Wednesday is very comfortable typing her novel on the old typewriter, but doesn't really know how to work the keyboard of Enid's laptop.


Just back from Miller's Girl in the cinema, seeing Jenna Ortega on the big screen is such an amazing experience!

Jenna Ortega in the teaser trailer for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. Don't say the name of this film one and a half times...

Loving the SuperbOwl news today, but for a little bit of some actual SuperBowl thing in between: Jenna Ortega is going to be in an hilarious advert for Doritos Dinamita, see here.
#JennaOrtega #Doritos


Jenna Ortega's book It's All Love will be released in a German translation on 15 February 2024. That's years after she wrote it and years after it originally came out in English. I guess we can thank Wednesday for that.
#JennaOrtega #ItsAllLove


Jenna Ortega is going to be in a new film called Klara and the Sun.

Her film Beetlejuice 2 will be in the cinema 6 September 2024.

Both bits of news just shared by Jenna's mother.

in reply to Gidi Kroon

Though I guess the joke is that it isn't going to be called Beetlejuice 2, but Beetlejuice Beetlejuice...
in reply to Gidi Kroon

Apparently it's Beetlejuice Beetlejuice 2024 A.D. in full, according to this Deadline article. And this is the article about Klara and the Sun. Jenna plays a robot designed to prevent loneliness and when she finds that a little girl has a mystery illness goes on a quest which causes her to learn about human love. This sounds great!

US people: reminder that Miller's Girl, a film with Jenna Ortega in the lead role, is in your theaters tomorrow. I think it's going to be a good one!

For people in NL like me, we wait until 14 March.
#JennaOrtega #MillersGirl



Last weekend Jenna Ortega's film Miller's Girl had its festival premiere and 26 January it will have its theatrical release. Good news is that we in the Netherlands don't need to wait too long this time: Thursday 14 March it will be in our cinemas!

I've read news that despite being on streaming, Wednesday is going to be released on disc as well. Season one will apparently come out on 26 March.

I'm going to do some mixed-up rewatch to see the combined talents of Jenna Ortega and Amy-Leigh Hickman by jumping between the second and fourth seasons of You. Double the brilliance. I'll be doing episodes 2x08, 4x08, 2x09, 4x09, 2x10 and 4x10.

It's happening again: the film account for Finestkind has been promoting since forever that its release on Paramount+ is 15 December. That's now, so I check: nothing. Loads of other people in the comments having the same problem. It looks like it may have been a release in the US only. They literally never mentioned that. Which also means that there is no word whatsoever if I am ever going to get to see it here.
#Finestkind #JennaOrtega
in reply to Gidi Kroon

I'm so done with the entertainment industry thinking that the US equals the world. And with regional release dates.

I know that the argument is that the local distributors can have their own campaigns and social media accounts promoting their local release. But they never do. Because the US accounts always present themselves as the overall global one, representing the film to the world, until they don't.



I'm excited for this film: Jenna Ortega's Miller's Girl will be in theatres 26 January, after being in a film festival earlier that month. Sounds like a difficult story that can fully use (and showcase) her acting talents.

No point watching, or even making, Scream 7, now that Jenna Ortega will not be in it due to scheduling conflicts.

https://deadline.com/2023/11/jenna-ortega-scream-departure-melissa-barrera-wednesday-1235634200/

Wednesday season one took eight months to film, she's doing season two soon, so there's just no time fitting in a seventh Scream. Apparently this was already being discussed before the strike began.

Jenna Ortega won the Breakthrough Award at the Women of the Year Awards by Harper's Bazaar! She received the award from Tim Burton. Here she is in that night's portrait studio in a photo by Rachel Louise Brown, published here by the magazine. See the announcement on their Instagram.

Ok, five seconds ago this wasn't hanging on my wall yet, put it up to take the photo, but I think I'm going to leave it there for a while.


New promo photo of Jenna Ortega for the upcoming film Finestkind, posted by their Instagram account.

Yeah, Jenna is a real standout even when she's sitting...

Great interview in Harper's Bazaar UK with Jenna Ortega, not about her films due to the strike, but about her career and her life, about the past and future, about her 21st birthday which was the first in a long time she was not working, about never being home, about representation, and about what she wants in the future. I like reading about her thoughts, she's a deep thinker.

Great photoshoot by Agata Pospieszynska as well. She's one of five cover stars for the 'Awards edition'.

The same issue also has Emilia Clarke and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. I can't find on the site how to order the issue, so what's the point in making such a star studded one?

Decades ago I frequently checked a magazine shop. Do they still exist?



More news about A24's Death of a Unicorn that stars Jenna Ortega: https://deadline.com/2023/11/death-of-a-unicorne-movie-adds-richard-e-grant-will-poulter-1235589147/ . It has wrapped and Jenna is executive producer.
#JennaOrtega #DeathOfAUnicorn


In related news: in the past you needed to type well into her last name before type ahead search results on the various sites considered you might be meaning "Jenna Ortega", but I can report that now for IMDb "Jen" is enough and for Netflix a simple "Je".

The autocomplete on my phone needs nothing more than "J", or in fact just a #, but that's years of training...
#JennaOrtega



I need more things like Wednesday and The Fallout, with Jenna Ortega in actual lead roles, it's such an experience. It's great seeing her in supporting roles and ensemble casts and even then she stands out, but there's nothing like a project being totally driven by her. There's no one like her.
#JennaOrtega


Trailer for Finestkind is on YouTube. The film will be on Paramount+ from 15 December. The great thing: Jenna Ortega is in it!

Watching Wednesday for only the fifth time ever. Jenna Ortega is so good!
#JennaOrtega #Wednesday
in reply to Gidi Kroon

It's the episode with the second of two cello scenes by Jenna in the series. It's my understanding many more were filmed in the series, but they had to be cut because the episodes ran too long. I so hope we get to see them some day.

It's also the episode of the extreme camera angles in front of the fireplace.

Btw, Scream (2022) with Jenna Ortega has also become available on Netflix in my country (NL). It transferred there from SkyShowtime where Scream VI (2023) is still available.
#JennaOrtega #Scream
in reply to Gidi Kroon

I really liked the series, it's varied enough in its stories to not be a repetitive kids-running-from-dinosaurs-and-surviving. The characters are quite interesting and multi-faceted. The development of the two girls finding out they like girls and especially each other, was nicely done.

I dislike how Hollywood writers whenever they write a smart teenage girl, invariably shoehorn in a love story with the bad-guy-who-turns-out-to-be-ok, even if it doesn't make sense for the character to be attracted to such a guy. See also Stuck in the Middle.

Happy Birthday Jenna!

Jenna Ortega turns 21 today. I'm going to celebrate by watching some Wednesday and seeing a film of hers (still deciding which). Above photo was posted by her hair stylist Jenny Cho and taken yesterday in Paris.

Jenna Ortega now also posted what is my favourite photo from her Dior campaign.

Finestkind will have its premiere at TIFF any moment now, but you can already watch a scene courtesy of this Deadline article. It features Jenna Ortega and like everything she does it's immediately captivating and intense. They say it's going to be on Paramount+ in November.

It has been confirmed that Scream 7 will happen, but it is not known yet whether Jenna Ortega, or in fact anyone else, returns. These negotiations will probably wait until after the strike.

Jenna Ortega is, or will be, filming Death of a Unicorn. As an A24 film this is not impacted by the strike (as A24 accepted the union's conditions and the union promotes people working on such projects).

I think this is good news not just because I want to see more Jenna Ortega films, and preferably good ones like A24 usually makes, but also because it provides work for all those other professions that depend on the film industry (catering, drivers, builders) and that would otherwise be impacted by the strike.
