This week on Under the Radar with Callie Crossley:

We discuss why it feels like everything coming out of Hollywood right now is either a prequel or a sequel: from the new "Game of Thrones" spin-off "House of the Dragon" to "The Karate Kid" successor "Cobra Kai." Plus, Disney released its trailer for the live-action "The Little Mermaid" starring Halle Bailey — and reaction was mixed, to say the least. Plus, what in the world is the new trend "Barbiecore"? All that and more on this week's pop culture roundtable.
