Alani Vargas is an entertainment journalist originally from Chicago. After graduating from Northwestern University, Alani freelanced and worked for Bustle, Elite Daily, Refinery29, Insider, The A.V. Club, The Take, and more all while covering movie trailers, reality TV, Marvel, Star Wars, and pop culture in general. Currently, Alani is a staff writer for Showbiz Cheat Sheet and freelances for publications like Remezcla, Vogue, and Bitch Media. 

While Alani loves a good WandaVision or Anakin Skywalker edit, she loves great Harlivy fanfic even more as her guilty pleasure. She loves horror just as much as a good rom-com, with her favorite movies of all time being a tie between Imagine Me & You and 10 Things I Hate About You. She still lives in Chicago with her rescue dog, Buffy, her black cat Salem, and her many hyperfixations. She hosts two podcasts, one of which is all about Star Wars called Heroes of the Galaxy.
