[SEGMENT 1: Disney Detective] (8-12 minutes)

  • Danny DeVito Joins LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson in ‘Haunted Mansion’ (Exclusive)
  • https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/danny-devito-disney-haunted-mansion-movie-1235033174/?fbclid=IwAR3GuLxKODv03MpMJXwVG3qRxmIKX52oykDAPJ1sPiLWwBEDjgdyxgQjlUM

    • Danny DeVito has joined the luminous cast of Haunted Mansion, Disney’s ghostly family adventure based on one of the company’s signature theme park rides.
    • DeVito, whose last big-screen studio appearance was in 2019’s Jumanji: The Next Level, boards a project that already has LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson and Rosario Dawson on the call sheet.
      • The details of the story and script by Katie Dippold are being kept deep in the bayou. 
      • The film follows a mother and her son who come across a mansion that is more than it seems while being orbited by various characters key to undressing the spooky mystery.
    • DeVito will play a smug professor.
    • Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich, who produced Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing live-action remake of Aladdin, are producing via their Rideback banner. 
      • Rideback’s Nick Reynolds is executive producing.
    • DeVito is a veteran comedic actor whose more than 100 credits range from seminal 1970s TV series Taxi to major movies such as Romancing the Stone and Batman Returns, and appearing, for over the last 15 years, in long-running comedy, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
  • Disney Delays ‘Doctor Strange 2,’ ‘Thor 4,’ ‘Black Panther’ Sequel and ‘Indiana Jones 5’

    • Marvel fans, prepare to wait a little bit longer to see Doctor Strange, Thor and Black Panther return to theaters.
    • Disney has delayed release plans for several upcoming films, including 
      • “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” from March 25 to May 6,
      • “Thor: Love and Thunder” from May 6 to July 8
      • “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” from July 8 to Nov. 11. 
      • “The Marvels” has been postponed to early 2023
      • “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was bumped from Feb. 17 to July 28, 2023.
    • Along with the deluge of Marvel delays, Disney has moved the fifth “Indiana Jones” installment back nearly a year. 
      • The still-untitled film, starring Harrison Ford as the fedora-wearing, swashbuckling archaeologist, will open on June 30, 2023 instead of July 29, 2022.
    • The major release date shuffle comes after Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” cemented its place as a pandemic-era box office hit and ahead of “Eternals,” the MCU entry that is scheduled for Nov. 5. 
      • The scheduling overhaul is related to production and not box office returns, according to sources at Disney. 
      • The next “Black Panther” entry, for one, is still filming in Atlanta. 
      • Since Marvel has become an interconnected and meticulously planned universe — which spans dozens of film and several new television series — any production delay causes a domino effect on the rest of the franchise. 
      • As for “Indiana Jones,” the 79-year-old Ford sustained a shoulder injury on set in June, requiring the actor to take a break from filming while he healed. 
      • Though director James Mangold continued to shoot without Ford, there are a limited amount of scenes that don’t involve the adventurer. 
      • Ford has since recovered and returned to set.
    • Four untitled 2023 movies from Marvel, 20th Century and Disney’s live-action division, have been removed from the calendar, while one untitled Marvel movie has relocated from Nov. 10 to Nov. 3, 2023.
    • COVID-19 has shaken up the way studios release their biggest movies, with many major tentpoles bucking tradition to land simultaneously in theaters and on digital platforms. 
      • After putting “Black Widow” starring Scarlett Johansson, “101 Dalmatians” prequel “Cruella” and animated adventure “Raya and the Last Dragon” on Disney Plus on the same day as their respective theatrical premieres, the studio has reaffirmed its commitment to the big screen — for now. 
      • The movies on schedule for 2021 will play exclusively in theaters for 45 days before moving to digital platforms. 
      • However, Disney has not solidified plans for 2022 and beyond.

[SEGMENT 2: Tales from the Edge of the Galaxy] (8-12 minutes)

  • Star Trek Icon William Shatner Shares A Sweet Exchange With Star Wars’ Mark Hamill About Going To Space
  • https://www.cinemablend.com/television/star-trek-icon-william-shatner-shares-a-sweet-exchange-with-star-wars-mark-hamill-about-going-to-space?fbclid=IwAR2SdZ4fU-KKkkTRUvaVjXRrYGaaXjjjUPJhcyp3UsgmTP1_jcJqngTnRK8
  • https://bit.ly/3na7cKC 
    • Star Trek legend William Shatner’s voyage to space has come and gone, as the actor spent a whole 11 minutes in outer space with a small flight crew recently. 
      • Following the short but memorable trip, Shatner shared a sweet exchange with Star Wars’ Mark Hamill about going up in the future.
    • William Shatner was first announced to be going into space aboard Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin last month and he even shared another sweet exchange with Wonder Woman’s Lynda Carter. 
      • Just days before launch, Shatner admitted he was nervous despite his years playing Star Trek’s Captain Kirk. 
      • Now that he’s done it, he’s giving advice to Star Wars icon Mark Hamill on Twitter over the possibility of doing the same:
        • Where Hamill said “Not sure how to feel about so many people suggesting I be shot into space.🚀🤔”
        • And Shatner’s response was “Well of course we want you to come back…someday. 😝🤣 Seriously, if you get the opportunity to do it; I’d recommend it.👍🏻”
    • It’s not surprising that following Captain Kirk’s trip, people would want to see Luke Skywalker do the same thing. 
      • It’s so great seeing how enthusiastic William Shatner is about going to space considering he was pretty nervous about it. 
      • Though who wouldn’t be? 
      • It is definitely a rare experience, and maybe one that Hamill would enjoy. 
      • It would be fun if both actors could head up into space together so fans could get a Star Trek and Star Wars crossover of sorts.
      • Even though William Shatner’s trip lasted less than 15 minutes, it seems to have changed his life for the better. 
      • The actor became the oldest person launched into space at 90 years old and he is still doing pretty well. 
    • One thing is for sure: William Shatner heading to space at the age of 90 certainly gives the impression that making a quick trip above the atmosphere isn’t too dangerous under the right conditions, even if there are no guarantees. 
      • Then again, the 70-year-old Mark Hamill didn’t actually indicate that he’s planning on a trip to space, or even considering it. 
      • Who wouldn’t have some questions if throngs of people start wanting to send you quite literally off the planet? 
    • Mark Hamill’s legacy as Luke Skywalker pretty much guaranteed that Star Wars fans would encourage him to give it a shot if it was ever possible, and Star Trek fans undoubtedly had fun with William Shatner doing it. 
    • Only time will tell if Hamill gives space travel a shot, but the odds seem pretty good that more and more celebrities will at least consider making the journey to space.
  • Star Wars Boba Fett Special Confirmed For Disney+ Day
  • https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/star-wars-boba-fett-special-confirmed-disney-plus-day/
  • https://bit.ly/3poqJto 
    • The upcoming Disney+ Day on November 12th will bring all kinds of treats to mark two years of the Mouse House’s streaming service.
      • From “Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings” and “Jungle Cruise” becoming free to view at home, to new shorts from The Simpsons, Frozen’s Olaf, and Luca’s Alberto. 
      • Beyond that, we know we’re getting some Marvel and Star Wars treats too.
      • One of which is now confirmed to be a special all about the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy.
      • Ahead of The Book Of Boba Fett, a Mandalorian spin-off series which begins streaming towards the end of December, we’ll be getting a special all about the guy himself, titled “Under The Helmet: The Legacy Of Boba Fett.” 
      • The first glimpses of the episode were teased in a new Disney+ Day trailer, with glimpses of Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, behind-the-scenes footage, and bits of Mando in there too. 
    • The special should be a nice primer for the Boba Fett series, which was teased in The Mandalorian Season 2 finale and comes from Mando showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni
      • This time they’re teaming up with Robert Rodriguez, who directed the Fett-centric episode from the last run of Mandalorian. 
      • Together, they’ve cooked up a show with Temuera Morrison returning in the helmet, alongside Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. 
      • What else we should expect from the show is currently unknown.
      • We could learn more about it on Disney+ Day, before the first episode drops on December 29th.

  • ‘History of the World Part II’ Variety Series Ordered at Hulu, Mel Brooks to Write and Executive Produce (EXCLUSIVE)

      • “History of the World, Part II” is described as a sequel to the 1981 film. 
        • The film was made up of segments set during different periods of world history. 
        • Among those was the Stone Age, Ancient Rome, and the French Revolution. 
        • Like most of Brooks’ work, it also featured musical numbers, including one about the Spanish Inquisition and, of course, “Jews in Space.”
    • Brooks is a writer and executive producer on the series along with Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes, and others. 
      • There is no word yet on which world events the series will cover. 
      • Hulu has ordered eight episodes of the show. 
        • The writers room is beginning in October with production slated to begin in Spring 2022. 
      • “I can’t wait to once more tell the real truth about all the phony baloney stories the world has been conned into believing are History!” Brooks said.
    • Brooks, a comedy legend and EGOT winner, wrote and directed “History of the World, Part I” in addition to appearing on-screen in five different roles. 
      • Those included King Louis XVI and his piss boy doppelganger as well as the stand up philosopher Comicus. 
      • The film also featured stars like Gregory Hines, Dom De Luise, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Cloris Leachman, and many more.
      • Brooks’ comedy films are consistently ranked among the best of all time, such as “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” “The Producers,” and “Spaceballs.” 
      • He later adapted both “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein” as critically-acclaimed stage musicals. 
      • He has also produced several hit films, most notably David Lynch’s “The Elephant Man.”

  • https://bit.ly/3vwq9eo 
    • Just in time for Halloween, Rob Zombie has shared the first photo of “The Munsters” cast, confirming Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman Munster, Sheri Moon Zombie as Lily Munster and Dan Roebuck as Grandpa Munster.
      • The filmmaker wrote, “Since Halloween is rapidly approaching I thought it was the perfect time to MEET THE MUNSTERS! 
      • Direct from the set in good old Hungary I present Herman, Lily and The Count sitting in front of the newly completed 1313 Mockingbird Lane.”
    • On June 7, Zombie announced that he would be writing and helming the film based on the ’60s sitcom about a family of friendly monsters, and revealed that he will be constructing all of Mockingbird Lane. 
      • The film follows a family of benign monsters who relocate from Transylvania to the American suburbs. 
      • It is set up at Universal Studios’ 1440 Entertainment division.
    • For months, Zombie has been sharing photos from the set. 
      • Most recently, he shared special effects behind-the-scenes images.
    • Zombie has also shared insight into the costume design of the film, teasing sketches of what Lily and Herman Munster wear to bed. 
      • While the costume designer has not yet been revealed, the detailed look included a description of Herman’s nightgown, complete with skull buttons, while spiderweb embroidery finishes Lily’s floor-length robe. 
      • Zombie wrote, “What do Herman and Lily wear to bed? Perhaps something like this! Check out some wardrobe designs by our amazing costume designers.”
    • In another post, Zombie shared a photo of the cast for Herman Munster’s head. 
      • He wrote, “The clay is out and the sculpting has begun on a very prominent brow for THE MUNSTERS.”
    • Zombie began directing horror films in the early 2000s, most notably “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects” and the 2007 reimagining of John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” as well as its sequel, “Halloween II.”

[SEGMENT 4: Insightful Picks of the Week] (8-12 minutes)

  • Michelle 
    • AMERICAN HORROR STORY: DOUBLE FEATURE
    • https://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/american-horror-story
    • https://bit.ly/3oFoUrI 
      • Unlike any other season of “American Horror Story” thus far, “Double Feature” had two season finales. The split season was the anthology series’ first time introducing two distinct themes, stories, and casts at once.
      • “Red Tide,” the first six episodes of Season 10, takes place in a sleepy oceanside town where residents pop talent-enhancing pills, drink copious amounts of blood, and excessively sing karaoke. The new-to-town Gardner family struggles with the pills — Harry (Finn Wittrock) and his daughter Alma (Ryan Kiera Armstrong) thrive in their creative endeavors, but his wife Doris (Lily Rabe) flails and becomes a disgraced pale person.
      • While that finale comes with a tight, full-circle epilogue (though one door is left ajar), the “Death Valley” finale is more ambiguous. The four extraterrestrial episodes explore various timelines throughout American history and, according to most fans, ends way too abruptly.
      • While “American Horror Story” is often self-referential, the two stories in “Double Feature” appear to be unrelated. Many fans were hoping to see a connection in the finale of “Death Valley,” though not even a slight nod to its predecessor was given.
      • If you look closely at the themes in “Red Tide” and “Death Valley,” however, there is some overlap. Both bite-sized stories deal with the downfall of society through greed, corruption, and an insatiable hunger for power. For the blood-thirsty creatives in “Red Tide,” that hunger is for fame, money, and acclaim. For the “Death Valley” politicians, aliens, and humans, it’s a power struggle caused by the former giving in to a higher power.
      • Both halves of “Double Feature” appear to be standalone entries into the franchise, offering different possibilities for the end of the world. Of course, “American Horror Story” fans know that anything is possible on the show, and Season 10 might not be the last time we see these characters and storylines.
      • American Horror Story: Double Feature is the 10th installment of American Horror Story, an anthology horror drama created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Since 2011, the creators of the limited series have redefined the horror genre with various installments featuring a creepy asylum, a coven of witches, a traveling freak show, a haunted hotel and the apocalypse itself. The television series sprouted a legion of dedicated fans who anticipate what terrors the next chapter will hold. The franchise is produced by 20th Television.

      • Who doesn’t love a good conspiracy?
        • Maybe it’s how the government is hiding the discovery of aliens
        • Or maybe you’re fond of the many assassination plots that came out of the 20th century
        • How about Hollywood and the sordid conspiracies of the silver screen?
      • In this 12 episode series on Netflix Skeptics and others discuss widely held conspiracy theories involving aliens, government cover-ups, secret assassinations and other intrigues.
        • History tells us that Hitler killed himself in his underground bunker.
          • But maybe, just maybe he escaped and lived out a long life in some South American country
        • Did members of the British royal family help the Nazi’s during World War II?
        • What really happened to Jimmy Hoffa?
        • Is the Vatican the easiest place to commit murder?
      • No conspiracy seems to be off limits to this series.
        • In twelve episodes you’ll explore twice as many popular conspiracy theories
        • Presented in a documentary style format with testimony from “experts” and experts you get a refreshing look at both sides of a conspiracy
        • While some questionable things are acknowledge in many of these conspiracy theories when the conspiracy theorists push their point of view, you get an objective look at the various points by accredited academics and histories who provide a grounded perspective and their own conclusions
      • Surprisingly it’s one of the more balanced “conspiracy” documentaries I’ve seen in the past.
        • I’m not a conspiracy nut myself, but I do believe that the “truth” as it’s fed to the public isn’t always the full truth
        • Sometimes you need conspiracy nuts to scrape the scabs off of histories more gruesome wounds and dig out a little bit more of the truth
        • I find most times there is some grain of truth to be gleaned from conspiracy theories, though the reality of the situation tends to fall short of some of the more fanciful creations of conspiracy theorists
        • It’s a well put together series that asks more questions than it answers, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
        • It’s not too preachy, nor does it try to cram a particular point of view down the throat of the audience
        • It creatively puts out theories, surfaces what factual evidence there is and puts it all together in a neat little package with commentary and reenactments then leaves the viewer to draw their own conclusions.

Joseph Whalen
And you are dressed for the part.

08;05;12;18 – 08;05;01;24
Michelle Whalen
This is really kind of more like an everyday outfit. I really don’t know that unusual. Yeah, I’ll still be wearing haunted mansion attire.

08;05;01;21 – 08;04;57;25
Joseph Whalen
Even after that, I am. I am dressed in my standard.

08;04;57;08 – 08;04;56;09

As the guy.

08;04;43;06 – 08;04;41;23
Michelle Whalen
That’s always in a Hawaiian shirt.

08;04;41;22 – 08;04;36;05
Joseph Whalen
So it is true. Yeah, we did have a fun man event this week. We did our trunk or treat with them this week.

08;04;36;05 – 08;04;31;04
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, and this was our first time ever participating. We’ve gone to trunk or treats.

Joseph Whalen
And.

08;04;30;18 – 08;04;17;15
Michelle Whalen
We’ve always wanted to participate in one and we never really had the opportunity. But as part of the Band Parent Association, they all did one for the kids after their practice on Wednesday.

08;04;17;15 – 08;04;11;02
Joseph Whalen
So and we did ours up and surprisingly on it mansion. Mm-Hmm. I would have never guessed that right.

08;04;11;01 – 08;04;08;00
Michelle Whalen
Right, right. I think next year we should do like a Star Wars theme.

08;04;07;29 – 08;04;06;18
Joseph Whalen
I definitely think we should.

08;04;06;17 – 08;04;05;07
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, I think that’ll be cool.

08;04;05;07 – 08;03;59;28
Joseph Whalen
With ships and stuff. Yeah. Yeah, that would be awesome. Yeah, but that’s not what we’re talking about today.

08;01;49;27 – 08;01;40;16
Joseph Whalen
All right. Go for Disney Detective.

08;01;40;13 – 08;01;15;16
Michelle Whalen
So our first story comes from The Hollywood Reporter, and it seems that now Danny DeVito has joined the cast of Disney’s Haunted Mansion, which is based off of the company’s signature theme park ride. So DeVito, whose last big screen appearance was in 2019 Jumanji The Next Level Boards, a project that has already.

08;01;14;25 – 08;01;13;14
Joseph Whalen
Mentioned that.

08;01;13;14 – 08;00;53;22
Michelle Whalen
Lakeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson and Rosario Dawson are on the call sheet now. I don’t remember hearing about Rosario Dawson being added to the list, so we might have missed that somewhere along the way, so she’s part of the cast as well.

08;00;53;15 – 08;00;50;16
Michelle Whalen
So obviously, the details of the story and the script.

08;00;49;24 – 08;00;49;20
Joseph Whalen
Are.

08;00;49;20 – 08;00;29;18
Michelle Whalen
Still being kept, you know, deep in the bayou, as they say. So the film from all that we really know right now is that the film follows a mother and her son who come across a mansion that is more than it seems, being orbited by various characters key to addressing the spooky mystery.

08;00;29;00 – 09;59;59;00
Michelle Whalen
What we do know. DeVito will play a smug professor Dan Lin and Jonathan Elrick, who produced Disney’s billion dollar grossing live action remake of Aladdin, are producing this via their ride back banner. Obviously, you know, for those who don’t know, DeVito is a veteran comedic actor who has more than 100 credits, ranging from his seminal 1978 TV

09;59;59;00 – 09;59;52;29
Michelle Whalen
series Taxi, to major roles such as Romancing the Stone, Batman Returns.

09;59;52;19 – 09;59;52;00
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;59;51;03 – 09;59;45;17
Michelle Whalen
Appearing for the last 15 years in the long running comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

09;59;44;20 – 09;59;26;24
Joseph Whalen
Yeah, it’s it’s kind of amazing the just the career that he’s had. Mm hmm. And to see the the range of talent that he’s displayed over the years. Yeah. But it’s kind of exciting, I think, to see him on this project here because of what he brings to everything that he’s a part of.

09;59;26;14 – 09;59;21;22
Michelle Whalen
And he’s and he’s already part of the Disney family. He voiced.

09;59;21;22 – 09;59;20;02
Joseph Whalen
Phil in.

09;59;19;04 – 09;59;10;29
Michelle Whalen
Disney’s Hercules animated Oh, right, right? So, you know, he’s already part of Disney lore, so it’ll be interesting to kind of.

09;59;10;28 – 09;59;10;13
Joseph Whalen
See.

09;59;10;06 – 09;59;00;03
Michelle Whalen
What crazy character he, you know is. Is he a ghost or is he, you know, someone that’s helping to to find these ghosts or, you know, figure it out.

09;59;00;03 – 09;58;47;01
Joseph Whalen
So he’s such a versatile actor. He comes in and every, every part that he plays, he literally becomes that part, and he’s so convincing in everything that he does. So I’m excited to see him in this one here.

09;58;47;01 – 09;58;41;19
Joseph Whalen
And hopefully the story itself is going to, you know, keep my attention, I guess.

09;58;41;18 – 09;58;38;00
Michelle Whalen
Yeah. And it sounds like they’re they’re trying. And especially when you.

09;58;38;00 – 09;58;37;16
Joseph Whalen
Have.

09;58;37;04 – 09;58;21;09
Michelle Whalen
The production crew, you know that they’ve been having hit after hit, you know, and I think they know that the first one wasn’t what they wanted it to be. Mm hmm. They’re hoping to to, you know, turn it around for for this one.

09;58;21;09 – 09;58;18;22
Michelle Whalen
So fingers crossed. Fingers crossed.

09;58;18;21 – 09;58;17;17
Joseph Whalen
All right. What else we got?

09;58;17;07 – 09;58;08;06
Michelle Whalen
So our next story comes from variety.com, and it seems that Marvel fans will now have to wait a bit longer to see Dr. Strange.

09;58;08;05 – 09;58;06;23
Joseph Whalen
Thor and Black.

09;58;06;23 – 09;58;05;18
Michelle Whalen
Panther returns in the.

09;58;05;18 – 09;58;05;01
Joseph Whalen
Theater.

09;58;04;20 – 09;57;42;11
Michelle Whalen
So Disney has now delayed the release plans for several upcoming films. So Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was supposed to be coming out March 25th, and now that has been pushed pushed to May sixth. Thor Love and Thunder was supposed to be May sixth, and now that got pushed to July eighth.

09;57;41;20 – 09;57;18;00
Michelle Whalen
Black Panther Wakanda Forever was supposed to be July eighth, and now that gets pushed to November 11th. The Marvels has now been postponed to early 2023, so no date yet for that. Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania is been bumped from February 17th now to July 28th of 2023.

09;57;17;16 – 09;57;05;27
Michelle Whalen
So along with, you know, all of these Marvel delays, Disney has also moved the fifth Indiana Jones installment back nearly a year. So the still untitled film starring Harrison.

09;57;05;27 – 09;57;04;23
Joseph Whalen
Ford as the.

09;57;04;23 – 09;56;58;20
Michelle Whalen
Fedora wearing swashbuckling archeologist will.

09;56;58;20 – 09;56;57;11
Joseph Whalen
Open on.

09;56;57;11 – 09;56;50;00
Michelle Whalen
June 30th, 2023 instead of July 29th, 2022. So that’s almost.

09;56;49;22 – 09;56;49;18
Joseph Whalen
A.

09;56;49;18 – 09;56;34;26
Michelle Whalen
Full year that that one is being pushed out. So the major release date shows. A full comes after Marvel, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings cemented its place as a pandemic era box office hit ahead of Eternals.

09;56;33;28 – 09;56;20;12
Michelle Whalen
The MCU’s entry, which is scheduled to be released next week. The scheduling overhaul is related to production and not box office returns, according to sources at Disney. The next plant back, blah blah blah blah blah, blah blah.

09;56;20;03 – 09;56;18;15
Joseph Whalen
The next Black.

09;56;18;15 – 09;56;12;04
Michelle Whalen
Panther entry for one, is still filming in Atlanta. And since Marvel has become an interconnected.

09;56;11;27 – 09;56;11;20
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;56;11;20 – 09;56;08;10
Michelle Whalen
Meticulously planned universe which spans dozens of.

09;56;08;10 – 09;56;07;09
Joseph Whalen
Films and.

09;56;07;09 – 09;55;44;05
Michelle Whalen
Several new TV series, any production delay causes a domino effect for basically the rest of the franchise. So because you have a delay on one, everything else kind of gets pushed back. So as for Indiana Jones, the 79 year old Harrison Ford sustained a shoulder injury on the set back in June, requiring the actor to take a

09;55;44;05 – 09;55;42;03
Michelle Whalen
break from filming while he was healing.

09;55;42;01 – 09;55;39;26
Joseph Whalen
That was when the Millennium Falcon Thor hit him right.

09;55;39;17 – 09;55;24;21
Michelle Whalen
Now, but that was years before. So even though they were able to still continue filming certain things, there were limited amount of things that they could do without him. Since then, he has obviously recovered, has returned on the set.

09;55;24;21 – 09;55;04;13
Michelle Whalen
So that kind of. Hurt the project being pushed a little bit further forward. So now there were four untitled 2023 movies from Marvel 20th Century and Disney Live Action Division that have now been removed from the calendar completely.

09;55;03;20 – 09;54;54;19
Michelle Whalen
So while one untitled Marvel movie was relocated from December 10th to December third of 2023.

09;54;54;19 – 09;54;54;11
Joseph Whalen
So a.

09;54;54;03 – 09;54;52;23
Michelle Whalen
Lot of shuffling.

09;54;52;10 – 09;54;51;29
Joseph Whalen
Going.

09;54;51;29 – 09;54;40;28
Michelle Whalen
Around because they made this whole thing, I guess it was during the summer where they had the like. These are all the things that are coming out from Marvel. You know that, you know, it almost seemed like there was something like almost every other.

09;54;40;28 – 09;54;38;09
Joseph Whalen
Month that was coming out. And now.

09;54;38;09 – 09;54;27;11
Michelle Whalen
It’s like, Oh, yeah, none of that’s coming now we’re just kind of pushing everything back. So obviously, COVID 19 has shaken up the way studios release their biggest.

09;54;27;11 – 09;54;26;05
Joseph Whalen
Movies, with many.

09;54;26;05 – 09;54;19;21
Michelle Whalen
Major tentpoles bucking tradition to land simultaneously in theaters and on digital.

09;54;19;21 – 09;54;18;25
Joseph Whalen
Platforms.

09;54;18;15 – 09;54;17;02
Michelle Whalen
So after putting Black.

09;54;17;02 – 09;54;15;24
Joseph Whalen
Widow and.

09;54;15;24 – 09;54;12;14
Michelle Whalen
101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella.

09;54;12;03 – 09;54;11;18
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;54;11;18 – 09;53;59;18
Michelle Whalen
Raya and the Last Dragon on Disney Plus the same day as the theatrical release, the studio’s, you know, basically reaffirmed the commitment to the big screen for now, because there are a lot of studios.

09;53;59;18 – 09;53;58;16
Joseph Whalen
Now that.

09;53;58;10 – 09;53;49;07
Michelle Whalen
Don’t want to do that. You still have HBO Max that’s been releasing things the same time as the theater. But I think Disney now has.

09;53;49;07 – 09;53;48;19
Joseph Whalen
Kind of.

09;53;48;04 – 09;53;36;16
Michelle Whalen
Stepped back from it. So. It’ll be interesting to see what happens, you know, going forward, if more delays are going to happen or if they’re going to be able to stick to these schedules.

09;53;36;03 – 09;53;08;22
Joseph Whalen
So I’m curious if this was a product of just an overly ambitious and aggressive schedule, a change of storytelling because, you know, like we all know, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is laid out in really interacting chapters. Right? And it almost sounds like maybe that story that they originally came up with that would be the long running one

09;53;08;22 – 09;53;06;19
Joseph Whalen
for what are known phase four, I think.

09;53;06;18 – 09;53;05;24
Michelle Whalen
Right, right.

09;53;05;13 – 09;52;51;02
Joseph Whalen
Maybe that that phase four story has changed because I know Eternals landed and kind of got a lukewarm reception and people weren’t all that excited about it, and that was supposed to play a significant role in phase four.

09;52;49;26 – 09;52;44;00
Joseph Whalen
And maybe some of the stuff that they’re running into is a change of story. I have to assume a good chunk of it has to do with COVID.

09;52;43;12 – 09;52;22;00
Michelle Whalen
Oh, I’m sure. And I think people, you know, maybe when they came up with the timeline of everything, they were hoping we’d be further along. You know, the pandemic wouldn’t still be as. I don’t want to say relevant, but wouldn’t be still as impactful.

09;52;21;24 – 09;52;14;13
Michelle Whalen
Yeah. You know that things would kind of be a little bit more normal at the time when they were planning because you figure, you know, when they start doing a.

09;52;14;13 – 09;52;13;12
Joseph Whalen
Movie, you.

09;52;13;12 – 09;52;01;16
Michelle Whalen
Know, it’s been written for so many years and, you know, to hire the cast and to get your location, everything, you know. So it’s so planned out. It’s not like, Hey, what are you guys doing tomorrow? Let’s go make a movie.

09;52;01;06 – 09;51;52;01
Joseph Whalen
Well, yeah. And that’s the other thing with Disney and Marvel’s that you’ve got the same talent that are appearing in multiple, right? You know.

09;51;51;21 – 09;51;51;01
Michelle Whalen
That are crossing.

09;51;51;01 – 09;51;26;26
Joseph Whalen
Over or crossing over a movie, the movie, TV shows and stuff like that, a of it’s probably timing issues. A lot of it’s transportation issues. Yeah, I have to think a good chunk of it is probably part of the production release philosophy these days now to when when they started releasing things during the pandemic with on Disney

09;51;26;26 – 09;51;16;24
Joseph Whalen
Plus, nobody thought that was going to be an outlet. Right? You know, Disney Plus was always going to be that either direct to DVD style market or that post.

09;51;16;06 – 09;51;14;01
Michelle Whalen
Right after its been right.

09;51;13;10 – 09;51;07;24
Joseph Whalen
So that kind of change philosophies the lawsuit with Scarlett Johansson, and that will probably change.

09;51;07;24 – 09;51;07;11
Michelle Whalen
Things.

09;51;07;11 – 09;50;53;21
Joseph Whalen
As well. Yeah. So I think it’s really a fact, a combination of all these factors, and it’s almost like Disney is kind of leading the way in trying to figure this out. Mm hmm. But it’s almost like they’re making it up as they go along.

09;50;53;20 – 09;50;53;15
Joseph Whalen
Yeah.

09;50;53;03 – 09;50;50;23
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, really. I think they are.

09;50;50;22 – 09;50;40;29
Joseph Whalen
Yeah. So we’ll see. I mean, you, you don’t want to push Indiana Jones too long. I mean, Harrison Ford is kind of getting up there in age, you know?

09;50;40;20 – 09;50;32;16
Michelle Whalen
79, you know, you figure at this rate, he’ll be 80 by the time you know, it’s released. Yeah, it’s really so great that he can.

09;50;32;16 – 09;50;31;08
Joseph Whalen
Still do.

09;50;31;08 – 09;50;30;17
Michelle Whalen
All this stuff.

09;50;29;09 – 09;50;21;25
Joseph Whalen
But yeah, but I mean, how much of it stunt work and how much is it? You know, I mean, they can debut and make him look like he’s, you know, oh, shoot five again, if they.

09;50;21;25 – 09;50;21;13
Michelle Whalen
Were.

09;50;21;10 – 09;49;54;22
Joseph Whalen
Or technology. Yeah. So anyway, that was it for our Disney detective. We’re going to take a quick break. We’ll be right back with our tales from the edge of the galaxy. For over seven years, the second Sith empire has been the Premiere Community Guild in the online game.

09;49;54;21 – 09;49;32;14
Joseph Whalen
Star Wars The Old Republic with hundreds of friendly and helpful active members, a weekly schedule of nightly events, annual guild meet and greets, and an active community both on the web and on Discord. The second of Empire is more than your typical gaming group.

09;49;31;20 – 09;49;08;07
Joseph Whalen
We’re family. Joining us on the star forward server for nightly events such as operations, flashpoints, world boss funds, Star Wars trivia, the Old Lottery and much more. Visit us on the Web today at W W W. The second surf and fire icon.

09;49;06;04 – 09;49;05;28
Michelle Whalen
Well.

09;48;56;22 – 09;48;34;29
Joseph Whalen
Today and our tales from the edge of the galaxy. Star Trek icon William Shatner shares a sweet exchange with Star Wars is Mark Hamill about going to space. Cinema Blend tells us that Star Trek legend William Shatner’s voyage to space has come and gone as the actor spent a whole eleven minutes in outer space with a small

09;48;34;29 – 09;48;14;26
Joseph Whalen
fleet crew recently following the short but memorable trip. Shatner shared a sweet exchange with Star Wars as Mark Hamill about going up in the future. William Shatner was the first was first announced to be going into space aboard Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Blue Origin last month.

09;48;14;07 – 09;47;54;17
Joseph Whalen
And he even shared another sweet exchange with Wonder Woman’s Lynda Carter just days before the launch. Shatner admitted he was nervous despite his years playing Star Trek’s Captain Kirk. Now that he’s done it, he’s giving advice to Star Wars icon Mark Hamill on Twitter over the possibility of doing the same.

09;47;52;08 – 09;47;34;21
Joseph Whalen
But my over the shoulder on, there’s not much to say, it’s just as Twitter as we were, Mark Hamill said not sure how to feel about so many people suggesting I be shot in the space. Shatner’s response was, Well, of course, we want you to come back someday.

09;47;34;09 – 09;47;14;22
Joseph Whalen
Seriously, if you get the opportunity to do it, I’d recommend it. It’s not surprising that following Captain Kirk’s trip, people would want to see Luke Skywalker do the same thing. It’s so great seeing how enthusiastic William Shatner is about going to space, considering he was pretty nervous about it, though who wouldn’t be?

09;47;13;15 – 09;46;57;00
Joseph Whalen
It’s definitely a rare experience, and maybe one that Hamill would enjoy. It would be fun if both actors could head up in the space together so fans could get a Star Trek Star Wars crossover of sorts. Even the William Shatner trip lasted less than 15 minutes.

09;46;56;03 – 09;46;35;04
Joseph Whalen
It seems to have changed his life for the better. The actor became the oldest person launched into space at 90 years old, and he’s still doing pretty well. one thing is for sure. William Shatner heading to space at the age of 90 certainly gives the impression that making a quick trip above the atmosphere isn’t too dangerous.

09;46;34;27 – 09;46;16;07
Joseph Whalen
Another right conditions, even if there are no guarantees. Then again, the 70 year old Mark Hamill didn’t actually indicate that he’s planning on a trip to space or even considering it. Who wouldn’t have some questions of throngs of people start wanting to send you quite literally off the planet?

09;46;14;28 – 09;45;55;14
Joseph Whalen
Mark Hamill’s legacy as Luke Skywalker pretty much guarantee that Star Wars fans would encourage him to give it a shot if it was ever possible, and Star Trek fans undoubtedly had fun with William Shatner doing it. Only time will tell if Hamill gives space travel a shot, but the odds seem pretty good that more and more celebrities

09;45;55;14 – 09;45;45;26
Joseph Whalen
will at least consider making the journey to space. I don’t know. I’m not sure I want to risk Luke Skywalker going off on a Jeff Bezos rocket.

09;45;45;21 – 09;45;26;22
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, yeah, I mean, obviously it seems to be. Safe, but obviously, you know, just getting in your car each day to to go to the grocery store, you know, you’re taking a chance. Sure. So I don’t, I don’t know.

09;45;26;14 – 09;45;24;08
Michelle Whalen
I’m I’m kind of liking being on the planet.

09;45;24;07 – 09;45;07;05
Joseph Whalen
But yeah, well, and you know, I’m I’m a Star Trek fan and a Star Wars fan, and I wasn’t particularly pleased to see that William Shatner is going to be taking that chance. Right, right. I’ve done I’ve read a number of articles about the safety issues.

09;45;07;05 – 09;44;59;27
Joseph Whalen
There’s a number of people from Blue Origin that came out about some of the shortcuts that were being made.

09;44;59;21 – 09;44;59;08
Michelle Whalen
OK.

09;44;59;03 – 09;44;52;10
Joseph Whalen
Some of the safety concerns that they had in order to accomplish some of the stuff that they’re doing so quickly. Yeah.

09;44;52;09 – 09;44;51;28
Michelle Whalen
OK.

09;44;51;27 – 09;44;32;12
Joseph Whalen
To make the progress because it was really you had that little mini competition between Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic, right to see which CEO could go into space first, and both of them were taking chances. In fact, Virgin Galactic wound up getting flagged by the FAA and shut down because they went outside their fleet vector.

09;44;32;11 – 09;44;31;06
Michelle Whalen
Oh, really, I didn’t know that.

09;44;31;00 – 09;44;15;29
Joseph Whalen
Yeah, and it was. It was because the pilot had ignored a warning that was visible. I mean, their live streaming this and the warning light was visible on the cockpit dash and the guy was ignoring it because your also sitting in the back, you’re not going to abort your boss in the back, right?

09;44;15;29 – 09;44;13;08
Joseph Whalen
Right, right? Yeah. Although you don’t want to be the guy to kill your balls.

09;44;13;07 – 09;44;10;25
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, yeah. Well, if you die, too.

09;44;10;01 – 09;43;55;16
Joseph Whalen
Yeah. So but as a result of that, they run up over burning their one of their thrusters and they came out of the entry window outside of where they should have been. Hmm. So I don’t know. I just it’s like skydiving.

09;43;55;16 – 09;43;50;23
Joseph Whalen
It’s like, Oh, might be fun, but it’s not worth the risk to me. Yeah, you know? Yeah.

09;43;50;23 – 09;43;39;18
Michelle Whalen
And but there are people that they are those adventure seekers that, you know, they want to take a chance. And if they don’t end up with a broken bone, then they didn’t have a good time, right?

09;43;39;17 – 09;43;22;26
Joseph Whalen
Right. It’s very risk averse. You know, if there is more than a non-zero chance of B dying, chances are I’m going to avoid it. Right, right. There’s a necessity to it. Like, I’ll jump out of an airplane if it’s going to crash and kill me otherwise.

09;43;22;23 – 09;43;09;06
Joseph Whalen
Hmm. But not voluntarily. Yeah, same with space. I love SpaceX. I love to go up to space, but it’s to the point now where it’s not safe enough. You know, I don’t like flying on planes and a safety record on planes is a hell of a lot higher.

09;43;09;02 – 09;43;04;16
Michelle Whalen
Right, right. Let somebody else go and take some really good footage and I’ll watch it.

09;43;04;13 – 09;43;02;05
Joseph Whalen
My camera here. Here’s my camera. Go take them and I’ll.

09;43;02;05 – 09;42;56;21
Michelle Whalen
Watch it in an immersive, you know, three day thing, and I’m good with.

09;42;56;21 – 09;42;50;03
Joseph Whalen
That. So anyway, you know, if I was if if Mark Hamill was taking advice from me, I’d say, don’t do it. It’s not safe.

09;42;49;23 – 09;42;48;01
Michelle Whalen
So what do you have next to talk about?

09;42;48;01 – 09;42;25;21
Joseph Whalen
So let’s talk about Star Wars and the Boba Fett special that’s coming up on Disney Plus Day, the upcoming Disney Plus day on November 12th. We’ll bring all kinds of treats to mark two years of the Mouse House’s streaming service from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Jungle Cruise becoming free to view at home

09;42;25;03 – 09;42;10;08
Joseph Whalen
. two new shorts from The Simpsons, Frozen’s Olof and Lucas Alberto. Beyond that, we know we’re getting some Marvel and Star Wars treats, too. one of which is now confirmed to be a special all about the badass bounty hunter of the galaxy.

09;42;08;29 – 09;41;52;16
Joseph Whalen
Ahead of the Book of Boba Fett, a Mandalorian spinoff series which begins streaming towards the end of December, we’ll be getting a special all about the guy himself. Titled Under the Helmet The Legacy of Boba Fett. The series glimpses the Premiere right.

09;41;52;16 – 09;41;31;17
Joseph Whalen
The first glimpses of the episode were teased in a new Disney Plus Day trailer with glimpses of Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back. Behind the scenes footage and bits of Mando in there to the special should be a nice primer for the Boba Fett series, which was teased in The Mandalorian season two finale and comes from

09;41;31;17 – 09;41;23;19
Joseph Whalen
the Mando showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni. The two guys who could do no wrong whatsoever with Star Wars at this point in time.

09;41;23;18 – 09;41;22;17
Michelle Whalen
Pretty much, yeah, they’re.

09;41;22;17 – 09;41;05;08
Joseph Whalen
Kind of riding high at the time. This time they’re teaming up with Robert Rodriguez, who directed the Fett centric episode from last run of Mando. Together, they’ve cooked up a show with two more Morrison returning in the helmet alongside Ming-Na Win as Fennec Shand.

09;41;04;19 – 09;40;47;27
Joseph Whalen
What else we should expect from the show is currently unknown. We could learn more about it on Disney Plus day before the first episode drops on December 29th. And you know, we love our Disney Plus documentaries. Yeah, we.

09;40;47;27 – 09;40;47;16
Michelle Whalen
Do.

09;40;47;14 – 09;40;46;12
Joseph Whalen
There’s stuff they’re.

09;40;46;12 – 09;40;32;14
Michelle Whalen
Probably one of our favorite besides, you know, the the other content. Yeah, yeah. We haven’t watched one. That’s been bad right now. All of them from the WandaVision.

09;40;31;18 – 09;40;31;07
Joseph Whalen
To.

09;40;31;07 – 09;40;23;16
Michelle Whalen
The The Mandalorian ones, even the Disney attraction ones have all been so, so well done.

09;40;23;02 – 09;40;17;15
Joseph Whalen
And what I like about them is they’re not your standard, you know, boring documentary.

09;40;17;15 – 09;40;16;18
Michelle Whalen
I was just going to say.

09;40;16;18 – 09;39;59;01
Joseph Whalen
That has some interesting perspective, some facts that you would never have found out before, or even just like sneak peeks of some of the concept artwork that you wouldn’t see anywhere. Right, right. There’s always gems in there to pick up that make it worth watching and they doing such an entertaining way?

09;39;59;00 – 09;39;57;18
Michelle Whalen
Absolutely, absolutely.

09;39;57;17 – 09;39;44;04
Joseph Whalen
So hopefully, we’ll get to see a little bit more about what the show’s about. Mm-Hmm. Before we get the show itself, yeah, so that’s it for our tales from the edge of the galaxy. We’ll be right back with our entertainment news of the week.

Joseph Whalen
Well. Go for entertainment news.

09;38;29;29 – 09;38;10;12
Michelle Whalen
So from variety.com, it seems that history of the world part one is finally getting a Part two with Hulu ordering a variety series. Follow a follow up to the classic Mel Brooks comedy film So History of the World Part two is described as a sequel to the 1981 film.

09;38;10;03 – 09;37;50;29
Michelle Whalen
The film was made up of segment sets during different periods of world history. Among those was the Stone Age, Ancient Rome and the French Revolution. Like most of Brooks’s work, it also featured musical numbers, including one about the Spanish Inquisition and, of course, Jews in space.

09;37;50;12 – 09;37;29;25
Michelle Whalen
Brooks is a writer and executive producer on the series, along with Nick Kroll, Wanda Sykes and others. There is no word yet on which world events the series will cover. Hulu has ordered eight episodes of the show. The writers room is beginning in October, with production slated to begin spring of 2022.

09;37;29;05 – 09;37;10;04
Michelle Whalen
Brooks had said, I can’t wait to once more tell the real truth about the phony baloney stories the world has been conned into believing art history. Brooks, a comedy legend and EGOT winner, wrote and directed History of the World Part one, in addition to appearing on screen in five different roles.

09;37;09;21 – 09;37;04;20
Michelle Whalen
These included King Louis, The 16th.

09;37;04;15 – 09;37;04;02
Joseph Whalen
Sure.

09;37;04;02 – 09;37;02;27
Joseph Whalen
16th and.

09;37;02;27 – 09;37;01;04
Michelle Whalen
His piss boy doppelganger.

09;37;00;27 – 09;37;00;13
Joseph Whalen
As.

09;37;00;13 – 09;36;38;08
Michelle Whalen
Well as the stand up philosopher comics. The film also starred those Gregory Hines, Dom DeLuise as Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Cloris Leachman, and many more. And most of those people are. How sad is that? Aren’t here with us anymore?

09;36;37;16 – 09;36;15;09
Michelle Whalen
Brooks’s comedy films have constantly ranked among the best of all time, such as Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Producers and Spaceballs. He later adapted both the producers and Young Frankenstein as critically acclaimed stage music musicals, and he also produced several hit films, most notably David Lynch’s The Elephant Man.

09;36;15;07 – 09;36;12;23
Michelle Whalen
That I didn’t. I didn’t realize he had produced that.

09;36;12;22 – 09;36;11;01
Joseph Whalen
I didn’t either until I read the article.

09;36;11;00 – 09;36;09;04
Joseph Whalen
Yeah, so he’s.

09;36;08;29 – 09;35;52;24
Michelle Whalen
You know, definitely a comedy legend. You know, has thankfully been around and is still very active. So this. Should hopefully be hysterical, you know, for those that are Mel Brooks fans.

09;35;52;15 – 09;35;50;13
Joseph Whalen
How old is Mel Brooks of this?

09;35;50;12 – 09;35;46;14
Michelle Whalen
He’s in his 99.

09;35;46;13 – 09;35;45;02
Joseph Whalen
He’s usually.

09;35;44;15 – 09;35;36;19
Michelle Whalen
I think we had we had looked and he was 91 or 92 or something like that, you know, and still sharp is.

09;35;36;07 – 09;35;35;13
Joseph Whalen
Amazing.

09;35;35;07 – 09;35;34;19
Michelle Whalen
And everything that.

09;35;34;19 – 09;35;28;22
Joseph Whalen
He’s accomplished in his time and he’s still producing as he is. It’s it’s incredible.

09;35;28;21 – 09;35;17;23
Michelle Whalen
Yeah. So I’m looking forward to see, you know what? Because obviously, at the end of history of the world part one, you know, and I think that was always the joke of it, that it was a part.

09;35;17;23 – 09;35;17;10
Joseph Whalen
one.

09;35;17;06 – 09;35;14;09
Michelle Whalen
Right, and that there was probably never going to be a part.

09;35;14;09 – 09;35;13;02
Joseph Whalen
two. And they had.

09;35;13;02 – 09;35;12;00
Michelle Whalen
These little teaser.

09;35;11;23 – 09;35;07;26
Joseph Whalen
They had a teaser for history. The world part the coming attractions for right.

09;35;07;26 – 09;35;03;00
Michelle Whalen
Right. And it was like, OK with this happening. And it was like, now he went on to do, you know, he.

09;35;03;00 – 09;35;01;08
Joseph Whalen
Did so many other things afterwards.

09;35;01;07 – 09;34;47;05
Michelle Whalen
And and that’s fine. And that’s the thing is, you know, so many of his things are parodies of other things that you don’t even need them to be a parody because they’re so good, you know, on their own and stuff.

09;34;47;05 – 09;34;46;21
Michelle Whalen
So mean, the.

09;34;46;21 – 09;34;45;02
Joseph Whalen
Man’s a comic genius and himself.

09;34;44;22 – 09;34;43;23
Michelle Whalen
And he still has it.

09;34;43;23 – 09;34;40;28
Joseph Whalen
So he does, and he gets the credit he deserves.

09;34;40;27 – 09;34;38;18
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, so definitely looking forward to that.

09;34;38;17 – 09;34;35;27
Joseph Whalen
So what’s our Halloween story?

09;34;35;23 – 09;34;32;15
Michelle Whalen
So, yeah, this kind of worked out. So also from Variety, it.

09;34;32;15 – 09;34;31;10
Joseph Whalen
Seems that.

09;34;31;10 – 09;34;16;01
Michelle Whalen
The Munsters, we get the first look at Rob Zombie’s new movie. So just in time for Halloween, Rob Zombie had shared some of the first photos of The Munsters cast confirming Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman.

09;34;16;01 – 09;34;14;20
Joseph Whalen
Munster, Sheri.

09;34;14;20 – 09;34;09;16
Michelle Whalen
Moon, Zombie as Louis Monster and Dan Robock as Grandpa.

09;34;09;16 – 09;34;08;27
Joseph Whalen
Monster.

09;34;08;16 – 09;34;00;29
Michelle Whalen
The filmmaker wrote Since Halloween is rapidly approaching, I thought it was a perfect time to meet the monsters.

09;34;00;18 – 09;34;00;05
Joseph Whalen
Direct.

09;34;00;05 – 09;33;36;10
Michelle Whalen
From the set and good old hungry. I present Herman, Lily and the count sitting in front of the newly completed 1330 1313 Mockingbird Lane on June seventh, Zombie had announced that he would be writing and helming the film based on the 1960s sitcom about a family of friendly monsters and revealed that he would be constructing all of

09;33;36;10 – 09;33;33;22
Michelle Whalen
Mockingbird Lane. The film follows the.

09;33;33;22 – 09;33;32;14
Joseph Whalen
Family of.

09;33;32;10 – 09;33;16;09
Michelle Whalen
Monsters who relocate from Transylvania to the American suburbs. It is set at the Universal Studios 1440 entertainment division. For months, Zombie has been sharing photos from the set, and most recently, he shared some special.

09;33;15;28 – 09;33;14;19
Joseph Whalen
Effects behind.

09;33;14;19 – 09;33;04;12
Michelle Whalen
The scenes images. Zombie has also shared insight on some of the costume design for the film, teasing sketches of what Lily and Herman Munster might actually wear to bed.

09;33;04;00 – 09;33;03;21
Joseph Whalen
While the.

09;33;03;21 – 09;32;58;28
Michelle Whalen
Costume design has not yet been revealed, the detailed looked obviously.

09;32;58;28 – 09;32;58;05
Joseph Whalen
Included.

09;32;57;05 – 09;32;54;10
Michelle Whalen
Herman’s nightgown, complete with skull.

09;32;54;10 – 09;32;53;20
Joseph Whalen
Buttons.

09;32;53;12 – 09;32;30;09
Michelle Whalen
While spiderweb embroidery finishes lilies of floor length, Rob Zombie wrote. What do Herrmann and Lilly wear to bed? Perhaps something like this. So if you go to the website, you can actually see a bunch of these pictures and it’s a very cool concept art to see, and it’ll be interesting to see what of the concept.

09;32;30;09 – 09;32;25;09
Michelle Whalen
Art actually makes it into the film, but it’s kind of interesting you have these spider webs.

09;32;25;01 – 09;32;24;16
Joseph Whalen
And these.

09;32;24;16 – 09;32;17;13
Michelle Whalen
Skull embellishments that, you know, unless you’re looking at it, you don’t notice that that it’s.

09;32;17;13 – 09;32;17;01
Joseph Whalen
There.

09;32;16;14 – 09;32;09;25
Michelle Whalen
In another post, Zombie shared a photo of the cast from Herman Monster’s head. He wrote, The clay.

09;32;09;18 – 09;32;08;11
Joseph Whalen
Is out and.

09;32;08;11 – 09;31;57;02
Michelle Whalen
The sculpting has begun on a very prominent brow for the monsters. Zombie actually began directing horror films in the early 2000, most notably the House of 1000 Corpses.

09;31;56;24 – 09;31;56;05
Joseph Whalen
The Devil’s.

09;31;56;05 – 09;31;48;14
Michelle Whalen
Rejects and the 2007 reimagining of John Carpenter’s Halloween, as well as its sequel Halloween two.

09;31;47;26 – 09;31;41;07
Joseph Whalen
Very cool. Now, I’m not sure what your feelings are on this. I mean, I was a big fan of the monsters growing up.

09;31;41;01 – 09;31;37;19
Michelle Whalen
Kid when I was two. That and The Addams Family also.

09;31;37;19 – 09;31;31;03
Joseph Whalen
So, you know, we didn’t get The Addams Family for some reason on the networks that we had. I didn’t get to see The Addams Family show. I was in my teens.

09;31;31;01 – 09;31;26;20
Michelle Whalen
OK, well, obviously when I saw the monsters, it was all reruns.

09;31;26;18 – 09;31;24;21
Joseph Whalen
Obviously, we’re not that old.

09;31;24;17 – 09;31;22;20
Michelle Whalen
We’re not that old. Just saying.

09;31;21;16 – 09;31;18;14
Joseph Whalen
I don’t know how I feel about this. It’s like, yeah, I.

09;31;18;10 – 09;31;17;18
Michelle Whalen
Well, and I was.

09;31;17;00 – 09;31;15;09
Joseph Whalen
Like, That really need to be remade?

09;31;15;09 – 09;31;09;00
Michelle Whalen
Well, and I wonder if they’re going to do it. Is it a comedy? Because obviously, the show was a.

09;31;09;00 – 09;31;07;27
Joseph Whalen
Comedy, right? Right?

09;31;07;26 – 09;30;57;24
Michelle Whalen
Or are they going to kind of do it a little bit more seriously? Or, you know, because that’s the whole thing is Rob Zombie is known. He’s working.

09;30;57;22 – 09;30;57;02
Joseph Whalen
For comedy.

09;30;56;27 – 09;30;50;00
Michelle Whalen
Right? So I wonder, but how do you make The Munsters? Not funny, I guess.

09;30;49;23 – 09;30;48;27
Joseph Whalen
You know, I could.

09;30;48;27 – 09;30;42;05
Michelle Whalen
See it kind of the way that The Addams Family, when they did the movie versions with Angelica Houston and Raul.

09;30;42;05 – 09;30;41;18
Joseph Whalen
Julia.

09;30;40;06 – 09;30;36;23
Michelle Whalen
You know that those were big hits.

09;30;35;27 – 09;30;34;15
Joseph Whalen
Or adult humor at that.

09;30;34;15 – 09;30;34;07
Michelle Whalen
Point.

09;30;34;07 – 09;30;31;28
Joseph Whalen
Yeah, the campy humor that the show had.

09;30;31;27 – 09;30;24;19
Michelle Whalen
Right, right. So I wonder if that’s going to kind of be where they go with it. But the cast looks, you know.

09;30;24;06 – 09;30;22;18
Joseph Whalen
They look and look fantastic.

09;30;22;18 – 09;30;21;06
Michelle Whalen
It looks fantastic.

09;30;21;05 – 09;30;17;20
Joseph Whalen
It looks very classic, like it’s the original.

09;30;17;17 – 09;30;12;27
Michelle Whalen
Yeah. And the fact that, you know, they built the house, you know.

09;30;12;27 – 09;30;11;21
Joseph Whalen
And and.

09;30;11;21 – 09;30;00;21
Michelle Whalen
That’s what I love is when there’s a film maker who actually spends the time to really build the set as opposed to, oh, well, we’ll just CGI it and we’ll, you know, yeah.

09;30;00;21 – 09;29;57;21
Joseph Whalen
Practical effects still have a place in television or.

09;29;57;21 – 09;29;43;17
Michelle Whalen
Movies. Yeah. Yeah. And I think, you know, it’s like, if honestly, I don’t know. Well, like Daniel Roebuck, I know who he is. I would not have known who that that was. Him looking at Grandpa, you know, monster.

09;29;42;23 – 09;29;36;25
Michelle Whalen
You know, Sheri Moon Zombie and Jeff Daniel Phillips. I don’t know what they look like normally, but.

09;29;36;12 – 09;29;28;04
Joseph Whalen
Well, just walking it. Just looking at the Herman Munster makeup, the grandpa makeup, it’s obvious that he’s trying to recapture the classic.

09;29;28;04 – 09;29;26;14
Michelle Whalen
Yes, the classic look of.

09;29;26;14 – 09;29;17;01
Joseph Whalen
Which is nice. Yeah. So hopefully it’s done in such a way as to let the original series stand on its own and be appreciated.

09;29;17;00 – 09;29;14;21
Michelle Whalen
I would definitely be interested in seeing it so.

09;29;14;14 – 09;29;08;18
Joseph Whalen
So we’ll see you. Yes. So that was all we had for entertainment news.

09;29;08;18 – 09;29;08;08
Michelle Whalen
Yep.

09;29;08;02 – 09;28;56;25
Joseph Whalen
And we’ll be right back with our insightful picks. Go for your insightful pick.

09;28;56;22 – 09;28;44;05
Michelle Whalen
So my insightful pick is American Horror Story double feature. So unlike any of the other seasons of American Horror Story thus far, Double Feature actually had.

09;28;43;25 – 09;28;43;13
Joseph Whalen
two.

09;28;43;12 – 09;28;42;02
Michelle Whalen
Seasons kind of.

09;28;42;02 – 09;28;41;20
Joseph Whalen
To it.

09;28;41;13 – 09;28;28;16
Michelle Whalen
So it was a ten episode season. The first six were based off of one storyline, and then the other four were based off of a different storyline and two completely different.

09;28;28;16 – 09;28;27;21
Joseph Whalen
Stories.

09;28;27;13 – 09;28;02;16
Michelle Whalen
Where I think a lot of fans of the show were looking for that commonality. You know, something to kind of tie the two together and they. They kind of did, but they kind of didn’t. So the first six episodes were titled Red Tide and it kind of took place in a sleepy oceanside town where residents popped some

09;28;02;16 – 09;27;41;18
Michelle Whalen
talent enhancing pills. Drink a lot of blood singing excessive amount of karaoke and. All this other havoc happens like true American Horror Story fashion. It was a very interesting story. It had a very Stephen King feel to it.

09;27;40;05 – 09;27;39;18
Michelle Whalen
You kind of had.

09;27;39;18 – 09;27;39;05
Joseph Whalen
These.

09;27;38;17 – 09;27;35;29
Michelle Whalen
Vampires that kind of came about.

09;27;35;29 – 09;27;34;16
Joseph Whalen
And and this whole.

09;27;33;22 – 09;27;18;29
Michelle Whalen
You know, do I take the pill? Do I not? Do I risk it? Type thing and and you know, it was a very interesting arc that they had. Unfortunately, the finale kind of was like, Oh, that’s how you’re ending it, but it was still good.

09;27;18;29 – 09;27;17;25
Michelle Whalen
It wasn’t.

09;27;17;15 – 09;27;16;25
Joseph Whalen
Bad.

09;27;16;01 – 09;27;09;17
Michelle Whalen
And then the next four episodes took on a whole other whole other theme.

09;27;09;17 – 09;27;09;03
Joseph Whalen
Of.

09;27;08;24 – 09;27;03;00
Michelle Whalen
Aliens basically taking over the country.

09;27;03;00 – 09;27;02;13
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;27;01;20 – 09;26;57;26
Michelle Whalen
Interesting little conspiracy theories about various.

09;26;57;26 – 09;26;56;19
Joseph Whalen
Things and what.

09;26;56;19 – 09;26;55;13
Michelle Whalen
Presidents knew.

09;26;55;13 – 09;26;55;03
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;26;54;28 – 09;26;30;15
Michelle Whalen
What presidents. And, you know, the government allowed to happen for these aliens to basically come over and and be interrogated, you know, basically take over, you know, the world. So that was kind of an interesting look at conspiracy theories of different things with, you know, Area 51 and like.

09;26;30;05 – 09;26;29;23
Joseph Whalen
All right.

09;26;29;22 – 09;26;09;28
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, I could see where you’re going with this, where they basically put historical things and historical people in, you know, intertwine with these things. So it was kind of interesting. And again, that season finale just was like it just ended and it was like, Wow, that was the only explanation.

09;26;09;28 – 09;25;56;13
Michelle Whalen
A lot of people, you know, I was reading different fans who kind of felt that same way that they, you know, like just give us like three more minutes to explain something. But that’s what American Horror Story does.

09;25;56;13 – 09;25;42;08
Michelle Whalen
Sometimes they just kind of rip the Band-Aid off, and that’s it. But overall, I was I was impressed with the season definitely better than some of their other seasons. And that’s what’s so nice about it is that every season is so different.

09;25;42;08 – 09;25;41;20
Michelle Whalen
They always.

09;25;41;20 – 09;25;41;08
Joseph Whalen
Take.

09;25;39;18 – 09;25;25;25
Michelle Whalen
You know, a different viewpoint of things and really mess with your head in certain cases. So if it’s something that you like, it wasn’t, you know, as gory as some of their past ones, which is kind of nice.

09;25;25;02 – 09;25;21;21
Michelle Whalen
So if you’re interested, all of the episodes are out.

09;25;21;00 – 09;25;20;24
Joseph Whalen
And.

09;25;20;24 – 09;25;19;18
Michelle Whalen
Streaming on effects.

09;25;19;14 – 09;25;18;25
Joseph Whalen
All right, cool.

09;25;18;13 – 09;25;18;00
Michelle Whalen
Thank you.

09;25;12;17 – 09;25;06;17
Joseph Whalen
So my pick this week, ironically and had nothing to do with with your pick is conspiracy.

09;25;06;16 – 09;25;05;19
Michelle Whalen
So you look at that.

09;25;05;06 – 09;24;42;14
Joseph Whalen
A Netflix series who doesn’t love a good conspiracy? Maybe it’s how the government’s hiding the discovery of aliens. Or maybe you’re fond of the many assassination plots that came out of the 20th century. How about Hollywood and the sort of conspiracies of the silver screen in this twelve episode series on Netflix, skeptics and others discussed widely held

09;24;42;14 – 09;24;26;21
Joseph Whalen
conspiracy theories involving aliens, government cover ups, secret assassinations and other intrigues. History tells us that Hitler killed himself in his underground bunker, but maybe, just maybe he escaped and lived out a long life in some South American country.

09;24;26;09 – 09;24;02;27
Joseph Whalen
Did members of the British royal family help the Nazis during World War two? What really happened to Jimmy Hoffa? Is the Vatican the easiest place to commit murder? No conspiracy seems to be off limits to this series. In twelve episodes, you’ll explore twice as many popular conspiracy theories presented in a documentary style format, with testimony from quote

09;24;02;27 – 09;23;46;02
Joseph Whalen
experts and actual experts. You’ll get a refreshing look at both sides of the conspiracy with some questionable thing. While some questionable things are acknowledged in many of these conspiracy theories when the conspiracy theorists push their point of view.

09;23;45;17 – 09;23;25;00
Joseph Whalen
You get an objective look at the various points by accredited academics and historians who provide a grounded perspective and their own conclusions. Surprisingly, it’s one of the more balanced conspiracy documentaries I’ve seen in the past. I’m not a conspiracy nut myself, but I do believe that the truth is fed to the public.

09;23;24;24 – 09;23;05;15
Joseph Whalen
That thread of the public isn’t quite always the full truth. Sometimes you need conspiracy nuts to scrape scabs off of history’s more gruesome wounds and dig out a little bit more of the truth. I find most times there’s some grain of truth to be gleaned from conspiracy theories, though the reality of the situation tends to fall short

09;23;05;15 – 09;22;45;17
Joseph Whalen
of some of the more fanciful creations of conspiracy theorists. It’s a well put together series that asked more questions than it answers, but there’s nothing wrong with that. I’m not it’s not too preachy, nor is it tried. Does it try to clean from a particular point of view down the throat of the audience, it creatively puts out

09;22;45;17 – 09;22;29;18
Joseph Whalen
theories, surfaces, what factual evidence there is and puts it all together in a neat little package with commentary and re-enactments, and then leaves the viewer to draw their own conclusions. So it’s, you know, it’s one of those things where you kind of get to see both sides of the story.

09;22;29;17 – 09;22;15;18
Joseph Whalen
You make your own decision. So anyway, I thought it was kind of an interesting series, I got through all twelve parts of it. And he is conspiracy streaming now on Netflix and we’ll be right back with our afterthoughts.

09;22;10;00 – 09;22;03;23
Joseph Whalen
So our list is getting short, we’re we’re burning through a lot of our shows here, what do we have left?

09;22;03;23 – 09;21;56;18
Michelle Whalen
Yeah, so both actually happened to be on the same day. The one is the Ocean City.

09;21;56;09 – 09;21;54;20
Joseph Whalen
Comic Con that.

09;21;54;20 – 09;21;51;00
Michelle Whalen
Is December 11th, only December 11th, from ten to.

09;21;51;00 – 09;21;50;14
Joseph Whalen
five.

09;21;49;28 – 09;21;33;18
Michelle Whalen
In Ocean City, Maryland. This will be one that we will be attending. We’ve been looking forward to trying this one for a couple of years, but they used to be, I guess, earlier in the season, I believe is what it was, and we always seem to be away during it.

09;21;33;18 – 09;21;32;13
Joseph Whalen
So this is.

09;21;32;02 – 09;21;25;05
Michelle Whalen
I guess, their first time bringing it back since the pandemic, which will be nice because it’s kind of the end.

09;21;25;05 – 09;21;24;23
Joseph Whalen
Of.

09;21;23;08 – 09;21;11;20
Michelle Whalen
The Comic-Con season. And also not much I’m guessing is going on and in Ocean City, Maryland, right at the time. So should should be interesting.

09;21;11;06 – 09;21;10;26
Joseph Whalen
So we’re.

09;21;10;26 – 09;21;09;02
Michelle Whalen
Planning on on making a weekend of.

09;21;09;02 – 09;21;08;22
Joseph Whalen
That.

09;21;08;04 – 09;21;05;00
Michelle Whalen
For those that are in the Allentown, Pennsylvania.

09;21;05;00 – 09;21;04;16
Joseph Whalen
Area.

09;21;03;27 – 09;20;41;26
Michelle Whalen
There is the Pennsylvania Toy and Comic Super Show, which will also be December 11th from tended to at the South Mall Allentown. This one kind of popped up. It looks like it’s, you know, probably your average sized Toy Show, you know, with comics as well.

09;20;41;10 – 09;20;27;09
Michelle Whalen
I don’t remember if they had any guests or anything, but it looks like they do other shows as well, other toy shows and things like this. So if you’re in that area, you have that one to to go to as well.

09;20;26;24 – 09;20;22;01
Joseph Whalen
And that’s it. That’ll round out the year for us, and hopefully we’ll start seeing more conventions show up.

09;20;21;14 – 09;20;07;15
Michelle Whalen
On the couch. Yeah, we were supposed to have Wizards of Philadelphia was supposed to be in in November, obviously because of the change of companies where it went from Fan Expo.

09;20;07;15 – 09;20;06;03
Joseph Whalen
Wizards to.

09;20;06;03 – 09;19;58;22
Michelle Whalen
Fan Expo. Obviously, something must have happened with the dates because they were even changing the location of it.

09;19;58;21 – 09;19;58;06
Joseph Whalen
Yeah, it was.

09;19;58;06 – 09;19;40;28
Michelle Whalen
Crazy as well. So now there’s nothing. If you look, look it up. So hopefully it’ll be next year. Also, the Greater Philadelphia Comic-Con, that one I think is supposed to be April ish, possibly of next year. And then there was another one.

09;19;39;13 – 09;19;38;00
Joseph Whalen
Well, when the dates are that happened.

09;19;37;24 – 09;19;31;14
Michelle Whalen
So yeah, one will go over once we once we find out more, obviously we’ll we’ll put everything together. So yeah.
