The Weekly Links: Goonies Sequel, Guns N' Roses Reunion, Goldbergs Star Wars Episode

Plenty of news to share in this edition of The Weekly Links. Will The Goonies really get a sequel after 30 years? Director Richard Donner seems to think so. Also, very sad news that the wrestler Ultimate Warrior passed away this week just days after making amends with the WWE and being inducted into the hall of fame. And from beyond the grave, Michael Jackson has a new album coming out next month as a teaser is released to his Instagram page.

A semi-reunion of Guns N' Roses will take place as original bassist Duff McKagan joins there current tour. (Your turn, Slash!) Have you been watching The Goldbergs? I'm way behind, but be sure to tune in May 6th for their Star Wars tribute episode. And for you baseball fans, how about a list of Major League fun facts on its 25 anniversary.

The TWL Video of the Week was an easy choice. Thanks to io9, I watched the TV show Community for the first time. Actually, it was just the intro but it was awesome nonetheless. They took the characters of the show and inserted them into a G.I. Joe: Real American Hero animated title sequence. Fun stuff!

Enjoy the video and this week's links!
