About the Author
Ryan Lizardi’s reflection on nostalgic generations is a valuable addition to the growing literature on nostalgia and its relations to media. It will be a very useful source for scholars and students working on the nostalgic production of video games and film.

Ryan Lizardi continues his insightful walk down memory lane and builds on his previous work on mediated nostalgia. Nostalgic Generations and Media engagingly explores the cultural implications of the multi-generational targeting of remade media brands such as Star Wars, LEGO, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and the “now-stalgia” of social media.
