  • Fans Don’t Think Disney Theme Parks Are #1 In US
  • https://insidethemagic.net/2021/07/sea-world-voted-number-one-theme-park-ks1/?fbclid=IwAR0bseNd8WyZy1getQhQcjtRDm8_UvSDxav3o8EdEGUDY4oLmIIp-M9ZgQY

    • With all the popularity surrounding Disney and its theme parks, it is easy to think that any park at the Disney World Resort could be considered the number one theme park in the United States. 
      • However, a recent poll conducted by USA TODAY revealed that that is far from the case.
    • USA TODAY asked its readers to vote on their favorite theme park, as well as their favorite roller coaster in the United States. 
      • Disney almost didn’t make the cut when it came to fan-favorite theme parks, and it didn’t rank at all in the top 10 when it came to roller coasters. 
      • Instead, another Florida theme park took the number one honor when it came to both categories — SeaWorld Orlando!
    • SeaWorld took to social media to share its exciting news with all of its followers:
      • BREAKING NEWS: you voted and the results are in! We won – not one – but TWO incredible awards! SeaWorld Orlando and Mako, have been voted the #1 Amusement Park, and #1 Rollercoaster, by USA TODAY @10Best Readers’ Choice award.
        • Not only was SeaWorld Orlando ranked the number one amusement park, but the theme park’s Mako roller coaster also ranked number one by fans. 
        • Mako is the tallest and fastest roller coaster in Orlando — reaching speeds of 73 miles per hour and heights of 200 feet.
    • While neither Disney World nor Universal Orlando took the number one spot, they both made appearances on the lists. 
      • Disney World’s Magic Kingdom theme park ranked number nine on the best theme parks list and Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure took the number ten spot on best roller coasters.
    • In order to determine the top theme park and top roller coaster, a panel of experts at USA TODAY created an initial list of nominees from more than 400 theme parks and hundreds of roller coasters. 
      • Readers were then asked to vote on their top ten from that list of nominees.
  • Frustrated Disney Guests Burst Into Song While Stuck on Popular Ride
  • https://insidethemagic.net/2021/07/disney-guests-sing-on-mine-train-th1/?fbclid=IwAR0aW5nTAKbfm6Mc-m147rjwqTB7eKyWx2refbz-5wzNV0xcBxAX2dvlVTo

    • A vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is perhaps one of the most magical trips a person can take. 
      • The collection of Disney Parks made up of the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as the water theme parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, create the huge Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida. 
      • Not to forget the retail hotspot, Disney Springs, too.
    • While Disney would hope everything goes smoothly while a Guest visits any of their properties, sometimes things can go wrong. 
      • A recent incident inside the Magic Kingdom led to a group of Guests bursting into song while stuck on one of Walt Disney World’s most popular rides.
    • Iconified by the mesmerizing Cinderella Castle, Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is one of the most visited theme parks on the planet. 
      • Hosting lands like Adventureland, Tomorrowland, and Fantasyland, the Magic Kingdom provides Guests at the Disney Park with an unparalleled magical experience, offering a number of themed attractions.
      • As many of Disney’s theme parks return to normalcy following the effects of the pandemic, the Magic Kingdom has recently seen the comeback of a variety of fan-favorite offerings. 
      • Happily Ever After returned last week (July 1), bringing fireworks back to the night sky above Cinderella Castle, and popular restaurant Casey’s Corner also re-opened after an extended closure — much to the delight of Disney’s Guests.
    • With the magic coming back more and more, Disney’s operation isn’t without the occasional hurdle. 
      • Evacuations of rides can occur quite frequently when technical difficulties occur, and sometimes Disney will send Guests backstage in order to manage crowds and long lines.
      • Last week saw some Disney Guests turn a rather frustrating experience into a group singalong when the popular Seven Dwarfs Mine Train broke down. 
      • Leaving Guests with the lights on, one rider caught the moment on camera, documenting how the frustrating situation turned into a rousing rendition of “Sweet Caroline”. 
    • Sharing to TikTok, @ironicism showed the event.
      • The video shows a group of Guests stuck in the Mine Train vehicle while singing the Neil Diamond classic. 
      • The user also shared some key information regarding what happened.
        • “I think we waited for about 20 mins. 
        • We had some young ladies throw music on that really lightened the mood.”
        • “They really deserve the credit […] they got the party started. 
        • It turned quickly from frustrating to funny.”
      • It is easy to imagine how frustrating it can be to be stuck on a ride especially one like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which often has some of the Disney theme park’s longest wait times. 
        • The rider then revealed how Disney compensated Guests for the unfortunate experience whilst on the attraction.
          • “One of the workers came and got us and led us outside. 
          • We were given a single fast pass that we could use for anything but Peter Pan for some reason.”
        • Cast Members will often make sure Guests continue to have a magical experience at the Disney Resort despite things like evacuations and ride breakdowns happening. 
        • It just goes to show how The Walt Disney Company prides itself on a unique Guest experience, making sure visitors to the Disney Parks remain happy throughout their vacation.
      • The Magic Kingdom is also gearing up to host its 50th anniversary celebration which begins October 1, and Disney vacation Guests will get a whole host of new entertainment for the event.

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

  • The Mandalorian Actor Explains Why Season 3 Will Be More Like Season 1
  • https://thedirect.com/article/mandalorian-season-3-release-din-djarin-plot-story?fbclid=IwAR2CBWZkNukdhQ-H-e4tpzQsoli9Te2KIby6P9J1NusEbT2zNpyPYsnE950

    • While the MCU has cranked out three Disney+ series to date, Star Wars fans are still looking to the future for news of The Mandalorian’s third season.
      • The first-ever live-action Star Wars series was a massive hit and established Baby Yoda (Grogu) as a pop culture phenomenon
      • While the Season 2 finale blew minds with a Christmas miracle Luke Skywalker cameo, the episode’s final reveal subverted fan expectations in a different way.
    • While a post-credits scene in a Star Wars project was its own kind of shocker, it established that a new series The Book of Boba Fett — and not Mando’s Season 3 — was next for the streaming service. 
      • This left fans wondering just when Din Djarin will return and what Lucasfilm has planned now that Grogu left with Luke.
    • In the Star Wars Sessions podcast, The Mandalorian stunt double Brendan Wayne (John Wayne’s Grandson) had a few things to share about what fans can expect from the eventual third season such as “a lot less introductions” and “delving deeper into the character.”
      • Leading actor Pedro Pascal provides the voice for Mando and is who audiences see when the bounty hunter removes his helmet, Brendan Wayne is often the actor under that beskar armor. 
      • Wayne is largely responsible for creating the character’s stature and mannerisms.  
    • When the actor was asked about the series third season and whether it was bigger than both Season 1 and 2, he shared the following:
      • “I think we’ve introduced the world in which Mando exists now. 
      • Not that there aren’t going to be new things, I’m sure… I think there will be a lot less introductions, and a lot more going back towards the first season of delving deeper into the character and things like that I think.”
    • When fans left Mando at the end of Season 2, he was in possession of the Darksaber and had just been separated from Grogu. 
      • The episode ended before he had time to process either event, not to mention the fact that his own Mandalorian belief system had been challenged in earlier episodes by Bo-Katan Kryze.
      • So even though Grogu is off with Luke Skywalker, there’s still plenty of areas for Mando to grow and change in the future.
    • However, it’s important to note that Wayne isn’t claiming anything as absolute fact, especially since production has yet to begin for Season 3. 
      • Even still, he has “heard some things:”
        • “Have I read one script? 
        • No. 
        • Have I heard some things? 
        • Sure. 
        • So I’m guessing. 
        • But I can tell you this. 
        • If anyone’s going to be able to continue telling a story, it’s Jon [Favreau]. 
        • And raising the stakes? 
        • It’s Jon.”
    • Considering all that Mando went through in Season 2 and his overall arc thus far, it makes sense for the character to do a little soul-searching through next season. 
      • However, there is speculation that Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have plans for fans to see the galaxy’s favorite father figure even earlier than that.
      • Since Boba Fett appeared in The Mandalorian, and both he and Mando are bounty hunting Mandalorians, it’s possible that Mando may have a part to play in the upcoming series.
      • Plus, a leaked t-shirt for the crew of The Book of Boba Fett shows a little Grogu in the artwork, leading fans to wonder if Mando will have another adventure or two in Lucasfilm’s next series before returning to his own. 
      • In the words of Din Djarin himself, “I like those odds.”
    • Season 1 and Season 2 of The Mandalorian are available to stream now on Disney+.
  • DETOURS: THERE’S 39 FINISHED EPISODES OF A ‘STAR WARS’ TV SHOW, BUT HERE’S WHY WE’LL PROBABLY NEVER SEE THEM
  • https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/star-wars-detours-disney-plus?fbclid=IwAR0g9sbc22dU1C6NMjxVHCd_oUgogQZfrY7s1MrLvX-03U3T6ExLSVYtHiI
  • https://bit.ly/2V4BzHQ 
    • Disney+ may be home to all kinds of new Star Wars content, from the space western stylings of The Mandalorian to the animated escapades of The Bad Batch, but don’t expect long-shelved animated series Star Wars Detours to be joining the lineup any time soon.
      • As series creator Seth Green (Robot Chicken) tells Entertainment Weekly, despite Star Wars creator George Lucas’ involvement in the project and the completion of 39 finished broadcast-ready episodes, it has been shelved indefinitely. 
        • (Green voiced Todo 360, a techno-service droid Todo, on a recent episode of The Bad Batch.)
      • “We finished [the episodes] almost 10 years ago, and so there would have to be a bit of reconfiguring of the existing stuff to make it something that Disney+ would release as a Lucasfilm offering,” explains Green. 
      • “And the way it’s been explained to me is that there hasn’t been enough interest high enough up to go through what it would take to put it out and that there isn’t an interest in releasing this content on Disney+ from Lucasfilm.”
    • Star Wars Detours was announced back in 2012 at Star Wars Celebration VI, and would have been another partnership between Lucasfilm Animation and Robot Chicken’s Matt Senreich and Green, following the studio’s three Star Wars specials, each of which lovingly lampooning the franchise. 
      • Episodes were roughly six minutes in length, and 62 more episodes were written and awaiting animation. 
      • Unfortunately, before they could make it to air, Disney bought Lucasfilm and decided to go in a different direction tonally, focusing on the sequel trilogy as well as more tonally-serious animated series designed to expand and build out the universe further rather than continue to poke fun at it. 
    • “I don’t really have an emotional position because I got to spend four straight years making something with George Lucas,” explains Green. 
      • “And my partner and I, and all of the people that got to work on it — the artists and actors and directors and animators — we all got to make something Star Wars with the guy who created it. 
      • And so I know over those four years that he was having fun, and that’s really all I care about. 
      • I got a priceless experience with one of my truest heroes, and got to see him laugh and enjoy all of the things that he had created, in a time before he agreed to sell them to somebody else.”
      • Green also goes on to say, “It’s not that I don’t care if people never see it, it’s just that it ultimately doesn’t matter if nobody ever sees it, because nobody can take any of that from any of us. 
      • And that kind of thing would never happen again, and I recognize that.” 
    • Lucas wasn’t the only big name working on the project. 
      • Green says Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels (C3PO), and Ahmed Best (JarJar Binks) also lent their voices to the project. 
      • They were joined by some other big names including Zachary Levi (Shazam! Fury of the Gods), “Weird Al” Yankovic, Seth McFarlane (Ted), Donald Faison (Powerpuff Girls), and Felicia Day (Supernatural).

  • Kevin Feige Reportedly Not Pleased With Disney Over Black Widow’s Release
  • https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/kevin-feige-reportedly-pleased-disney-black-widows-release/?fbclid=IwAR2kXDIxY5DpW0xtzjne34xJIcxmLYY1odP9UrrWWvdMY_hGoS0gA1zIgYA
  • https://bit.ly/3xnpfRt 
    • At long last, Black Widow is now less than one week away from releasing. 
      • Given its numerous delays over the past year, Marvel fans had become increasingly desperate to see the movie and had been demanding it drop on Disney Plus and forgo a theatrical run. 
      • As it happens, Disney elected to release it in both cinemas and on streaming, with the Scarlett Johansson vehicle being available to watch online through D+’s Premier Access label This Friday.
    • Audiences hungry to watch the film from the comfort of their own homes are eager to stream it, then, but it sounds like Marvel Studios themselves are less than happy about this arrangement. 
      • According to tipster Daniel Richtman, Marvel president Kevin Feige is not at all pleased with Disney over their revised Black Widow release strategy. 
      • In fact, the scooper says Feige is “mad” with the studio for the simultaneous streaming roll-out.
    • The reason why is because Feige was apparently not told about it and wasn’t personally involved in the decision to put Black Widow out on Disney Plus. 
      • If this intel is accurate, it would be very surprising. 
      • Feige is one of Disney’s most lucrative partners and he’s brought them billions upon billions of dollars over the past decade. 
      • You’d have thought they’d have kept him in the loop with what they were going to do with one of his own productions.
    • However, this sort of snub is in keeping with the outrage we’ve heard from other filmmakers over their movies getting streaming releases. 
      • Pixar is believed to be furious with Disney for repeatedly sharing their efforts for free on Disney Plus. 
      • What’s more, multiple creatives – like Christopher Nolan and Denis Villeneuve – have hit back against WarnerMedia’s move to share all of its 2021 films on HBO Max.
    • As studios adjust to the changing cinematic landscape, it definitely seems like they’re struggling to keep both moviemakers and moviegoers happy at the same time. 
      • Whether Feige’s pleased about it or not, Black Widow can be found in theaters and on Disney Plus, for a $29.99 additional charge, from next Friday, July 9th.
  • ‘Willy Wonka’ child star says Gene Wilder made sure she was looked after on-set because her parents weren’t around during filming
  • https://www.insider.com/willy-wonka-child-star-says-gene-wilder-looked-after-her-2021-7?fbclid=IwAR3my2VzeSkKMk5JfyfR4ikcVsm1nmoBTbiWE7KYN-0SKtI_E3zYTxvjJBY

    • “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” star Julie Dawn Cole said that Gene Wilder personally made sure someone was looking after Cole when he found out the then-child actor’s family wasn’t accompanying her on-set.
      • In June, Cole, along with former costars Peter Ostrum (who played Charlie Bucket), Michael Bollner (who played Augustus Gloop), and Paris Themmen (who played Mike Teavee), spoke about the late Wilder in a conversation with Insider to mark the film’s 50th anniversary on Wednesday.
        • Based on the 1964 Roald Dahl novel “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” the 1971 movie tells the story of the eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (played by Wilder) who invites a group of golden ticket-winning children to his secretive chocolate factory. 
      • Cole, who played Veruca Salt, described Wilder as a “warm, kind person” with “piercing blue eyes.”
        • Cole, who said she was “the only kid in Germany that didn’t have a member of my family” on set, recalled how Wilder found out she was unaccompanied a few weeks into filming. (The movie was primarily shot in Munich, Germany.)
        • According to Cole, her mother was away working in England and the then-12-year-old child actress was basically “on my own out there in Germany” with just a “registered chaperone.”
        • Cole said that when Wilder learned she was on her own, he told Roy Kinnear (who played Veruca’s on-screen father, Mr. Salt) and Jack Albertson (who played Charlie’s Grandpa Joe): “Look, boys, she’s on her own here. We’ve got to look out for her.”
          • “And they did, they all kind of took care of me,” Cole said. 
          • “So that was Gene. He was very much looking around at what was going on and taking care of everybody else. 
          • Very, very kind man.”
        • German-native Bollner also recalled a “funny interview” experience involving Wilder, with a German newspaper.
          • “Gene doesn’t speak German, and I don’t speak English very well. 
          • The newspaper girl doesn’t speak English at all,” Bollner told Insider during the same 50th-anniversary chat in June.
          • “Gene was very gentle and very nice to all of us and he tried to make the best out of it,” Bollner, who’s now an accountant based in Germany, said.
        • Since “Willy Wonka” was released in 1971, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” has been remade into musicals, video games, and a 2005 Tim Burton movie starring Johnny Depp.
      • Most recently, Deadline reported in May that “Little Women” actor Timothée Chalamet is set to star in an upcoming Warner Bros. movie exploring Wonka’s life before he started his chocolate factory.
        • The prequel is tentatively slated to be released in 2023, according to Deadline.
        • Peter Ostrum, who played main character Charlie Bucket in the 1971 movie, told Insider that he is “excited” about the prequel starring Chalamet. 
          • “I want to know what happened to Willy Wonka prior to me meeting him,” Ostrum said. “So all references, or anything new, that they can do with Willy Wonka is a positive.”
        • Paris Themmen agreed and even said he’d be very open to making a cameo in the prequel if the filmmakers were to ask him.
          • “I think it’s nice for them that they’re not doing the remake,” Themmen told Insider. 
          • “They’re doing a prequel because that way it will avoid direct comparison.”
          • He added: “Especially in the area of Gene Wilder, that might always be a good thing. 
          • Because he was so wonderful in our version of the film.”

      • Netflix 2021 – 5 episodes

      • His name built an empire. His style defined an era. American fashion designer Halston skyrockets to fame before his life starts to spin out of control.
      • Netflix is tackling the life of iconic fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick in its latest limited series from Ryan Murphy. Halston stars Ewan McGregor as the Iowa-born fashion pioneer who created stylish, minimalist clothes worn by Studio 54 denizens such as Bianca Jagger and Liza Minnelli. The five-episode series, which premieres May 14, chronicles Halston’s spectacular rise and dramatic fall. But it’s also attracting criticism from Halston’s family.
      • Halston, who was born in 1932, first made his mark on the fashion world as a milliner. One of his most famous creations was the pillbox hat Jackie Kennedy wore to her husband’s 1961 presidential inauguration. Eventually, he moved from hats to women’s clothing. 
      • In the 1970s, Halston’s elegant, glamorous designs came to define the decade. He dressed the era’s biggest stars and was a regular at legendary nightclub Studio 54. But things had shifted by the early 1980s. Questionable business decisions, a controversial partnership with JCPenney, and drug use all contributed to his gradual withdrawal from the limelight. He died of AIDS-related complications in 1990.
      • Netflix’s Halston is based on the book Simply Halston by Steven Gaines. It draws from true events and features many real-life figures. Among the famous faces seen in the show are Liza Minnelli (Krysta Rodriguez), director Joel Schumacher (Rory Culkin), and jewelry designer Elsa Peretti (Rebecca Dayan). But Halston’s surviving family members say the series is far from accurate. 
      • “The Halston Archives and Family were not consulted on the upcoming Netflix series involving an inaccurate, fictionalized account of famed fashion designer Halston,” representatives for the family said in a statement.
  • HALSTON captures the epic sweep of the life and times of legendary designer Roy Halston Frowick. Acclaimed filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng expertly weaves rare archival footage and intimate interviews with Halston’s friends, family, and collaborators. Tcheng frames Halston’s story as an investigation using scripted scenes featuring Tavi Gevinson as a young archivist who uncovers Halston’s artistic…

    • https://www.amazon.com/Tomorrow-War-Chris-Pratt/dp/B093CNZ7ST 
    • https://amzn.to/3xyhIz2 
      • In The Tomorrow War, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrive from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message.
        • Thirty years in the future mankind is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. 
        • The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. 
        • Among those recruited is high school teacher and family man Dan Forester played by Chris Pratt. 
          • Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist and his estranged father in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.
      • The premise of the movie is somewhat unique
        • A mix of Alien, Independence Day and a bit of Terminator mixed in for a unique take on time travelling world ending alien invasions
        • The character development is predictable and rushed with early scenes that are supposed to establish certain relationship dynamics that are almost completely forgotten later in the movie when they were supposed to be critical.
        • As always, Chris Pratt does a fantastic job playing Chris Pratt.
          • Much like Nicolas Cage, Chris Pratt plays himself in just about every role I’ve ever seen him in, once again showing his stunning lack of depth as an actor
          • You get the same personality traits, the same quirky comments, the same goofy facial expressions and the typical befuddled look in more scenes than it’s needed from Pratt.
          • Despite his lack of screen time in the movie JK Simmons steals the show with his portrayal of Pratt’s on screen mercenary father
        • The story progresses to a natural conclusion only to have a bit of today’s political strife injected into the plot to supply us with an unneeded 45 additional minutes to a movie that should have ended on a high note.
        • The last few scenes of the movie set in present time are even less believable than soldiers from the future returning to the past to recruit every day citizens as sacrifices to an unbeatable enemy.
        • Somehow in all the twists and turns the writers neglected to think about sending scientists into the past to come up with the very solution to the problem that Pratts character is sent to the future to work on as a last desperate measure.
        • Up until this last present day plot twist the movie was entertaining just before it went off the rails and turned in a bad remake of John Carpenter’s “The Thing”.
        • If you turn the movie off at the instant that Pratt’s character is transported back to the present day you’ll probably find it a much more enjoyable experience than watching it to its boorish conclusion.
        • One good thing about the terrible ending, JK Simmons gets the bulk of his screen time here.

0:01:35.840,0:01:40.560
the fact that disney isn’t number one

0:01:37.840,0:01:42.720
according to fans anymore and then some

0:01:40.560,0:01:45.119
unhappy guests burst into song while

0:01:42.720,0:01:46.479
stuck on a popular ride

0:01:46.479,0:01:52.079
galaxy an actor from the mandalorian

0:01:52.079,0:01:55.680
season one

0:01:53.680,0:01:58.079
and the completed star wars show that

0:01:55.680,0:02:00.799
we’ll never probably see

0:01:58.079,0:02:01.360
and for our entertainment news kevin

0:02:00.799,0:02:04.240
feige

0:02:01.360,0:02:06.159
reportedly is not pleased with disney’s

0:02:04.240,0:02:08.160
uh with disney over their release

0:02:06.159,0:02:08.720
strategy for black panther a black

0:02:08.160,0:02:12.080
panther

0:02:08.720,0:02:13.120
right black widow uh we did black

0:02:12.080,0:02:16.319
panther last week

0:02:13.120,0:02:18.800
right right and a willy wonka child star

0:02:16.319,0:02:19.840
said this actor made sure she was looked

0:02:18.800,0:02:22.000
after on set

0:02:19.840,0:02:23.280
because her parents weren’t around

0:02:22.000,0:02:25.760
during filming

0:02:23.280,0:02:27.520
very nice story yeah and then we’ll

0:02:25.760,0:02:29.760
finish up with our insightful picks

0:02:27.520,0:02:31.360
of the week and we’ll have an

0:02:29.760,0:02:34.160
abbreviated version

0:02:31.360,0:02:34.959
of our afterthoughts as well ready to

0:02:34.160,0:02:37.840
get started

0:02:34.959,0:02:43.120
sure all right

0:02:37.840,0:02:45.680
[Music]

0:02:43.120,0:02:47.480
go for disney detectives so our first

0:02:45.680,0:02:49.599
story comes from

0:02:47.480,0:02:50.480
insidethemagic.net and it talks about

0:02:49.599,0:02:52.640
how fans

0:02:50.480,0:02:54.959
don’t think that disney theme parks are

0:02:52.640,0:02:57.920
number one in the us anymore

0:02:54.959,0:02:59.840
so obviously there’s popularity

0:02:57.920,0:03:00.640
surrounding disney and all of its theme

0:02:59.840,0:03:02.879
parks

0:03:00.640,0:03:04.080
and it’s you know easy for people to

0:03:02.879,0:03:07.680
consider them number

0:03:04.080,0:03:10.239
one in the united states but however a

0:03:07.680,0:03:13.599
recent poll that was actually conducted

0:03:10.239,0:03:14.879
by usa today revealed that that is far

0:03:13.599,0:03:17.440
from the case

0:03:14.879,0:03:19.519
so it seems usa today asked its readers

0:03:17.440,0:03:21.840
to vote on their favorite theme park

0:03:19.519,0:03:23.519
as well as their favorite roller coaster

0:03:21.840,0:03:26.400
in the united states

0:03:23.519,0:03:28.560
now disney almost didn’t make the cut

0:03:26.400,0:03:29.200
when it came to a fan favorite theme

0:03:28.560,0:03:32.799
park

0:03:29.200,0:03:35.120
and it also um and it didn’t rank

0:03:32.799,0:03:36.239
in the top 10 when it came to roller

0:03:35.120,0:03:38.959
coasters

0:03:36.239,0:03:39.760
instead another florida theme park took

0:03:38.959,0:03:42.560
the number one

0:03:39.760,0:03:44.159
honor when it came to both categories

0:03:42.560,0:03:47.680
and kind of shockingly

0:03:44.159,0:03:49.599
it was sea world orlando so seaworld

0:03:47.680,0:03:52.239
actually took to social media to share

0:03:49.599,0:03:54.799
the exciting news to all its followers

0:03:52.239,0:03:56.400
saying breaking news you voted and the

0:03:54.799,0:03:59.280
results are in we won

0:03:56.400,0:04:01.519
not one but two incredible awards sea

0:03:59.280,0:04:03.680
world orlando and mako

0:04:01.519,0:04:05.920
have been voted the number one amusement

0:04:03.680,0:04:08.239
park and number one roller coaster by

0:04:05.920,0:04:11.519
usa today’s

0:04:08.239,0:04:14.400
at 10 best readers choice awards

0:04:11.519,0:04:15.280
so not only was sea world orlando ranked

0:04:14.400,0:04:17.359
number one

0:04:15.280,0:04:18.400
for the amusement park but their roller

0:04:17.359,0:04:21.840
coaster

0:04:18.400,0:04:24.320
was named number one as well so mako

0:04:21.840,0:04:25.280
is the tallest fastest roller coaster in

0:04:24.320,0:04:28.240
orlando

0:04:25.280,0:04:29.120
reaching speeds of 73 miles per hour and

0:04:28.240,0:04:34.080
a height

0:04:29.120,0:04:34.080
of 200 feet hate to say it but

0:04:35.120,0:04:38.560
there’s no way i’d be going on that

0:04:37.280,0:04:42.320
anyway

0:04:38.560,0:04:45.360
but um so uh you know so while

0:04:42.320,0:04:47.199
disney nor universal orlando took the

0:04:45.360,0:04:49.040
number one spot they did both make

0:04:47.199,0:04:51.520
appearances on the list

0:04:49.040,0:04:52.880
disney world’s magic kingdom theme park

0:04:51.520,0:04:55.040
ranked number nine

0:04:52.880,0:04:57.280
on the best theme parks list and

0:04:55.040,0:04:59.840
hagrid’s magical creature

0:04:57.280,0:05:02.160
motorbike adventure took the number 10

0:04:59.840,0:05:04.400
spot on the best roller coasters

0:05:02.160,0:05:06.960
so in order to determine a top theme

0:05:04.400,0:05:09.360
park and top roller coaster a panel

0:05:06.960,0:05:11.199
of experts at usa today created an

0:05:09.360,0:05:13.680
initial list of nominees

0:05:11.199,0:05:15.520
for more than 400 theme parks and

0:05:13.680,0:05:17.520
hundreds of roller coasters

0:05:15.520,0:05:19.759
readers were then asked to vote on their

0:05:17.520,0:05:22.479
top 10 and that’s how

0:05:19.759,0:05:24.400
they came up with their final list so

0:05:22.479,0:05:28.400
the only objection that i have to this

0:05:24.400,0:05:31.360
is that there aren’t 400 theme parks

0:05:28.400,0:05:32.880
there are tons of amusement parks right

0:05:31.360,0:05:33.919
so the fact that you’re clear and i’m

0:05:32.880,0:05:36.960
not saying this in

0:05:33.919,0:05:40.080
in the defense of of disney or

0:05:36.960,0:05:42.479
universal at all but to classify

0:05:40.080,0:05:43.680
a theme park like disney in the same

0:05:42.479,0:05:46.240
realm as

0:05:43.680,0:05:48.080
an amusement park like a six flags

0:05:46.240,0:05:50.320
they’re completely different

0:05:48.080,0:05:52.000
types of parks completely agree they’re

0:05:50.320,0:05:54.560
targeted for completely different

0:05:52.000,0:05:56.160
audiences right and and well i don’t

0:05:54.560,0:05:57.600
think anybody ever expected disney to

0:05:56.160,0:05:58.880
come in the top in roller coasters

0:05:57.600,0:06:00.880
because their roller coasters are

0:05:58.880,0:06:03.680
family-friendly roller coasters right

0:06:00.880,0:06:06.240
right they don’t have break neck super

0:06:03.680,0:06:08.639
high super fast super long nothing it’s

0:06:06.240,0:06:10.160
they’re pretty team roller coasters when

0:06:08.639,0:06:12.560
it comes to the world of roller coasters

0:06:10.160,0:06:13.919
right when you look at because again

0:06:12.560,0:06:16.800
it’s meant to be

0:06:13.919,0:06:18.319
an attraction right um you know that’s

0:06:16.800,0:06:20.960
one of the things there’s somebody

0:06:18.319,0:06:21.520
um who i follow actually now on tick

0:06:20.960,0:06:24.960
tock

0:06:21.520,0:06:27.759
he’s a cast member he does a lot of

0:06:24.960,0:06:28.639
the emceeing events that they they do

0:06:27.759,0:06:30.960
online and

0:06:28.639,0:06:32.639
and stuff like that and he actually

0:06:30.960,0:06:35.919
talked about one

0:06:32.639,0:06:38.720
and um you know one of the

0:06:35.919,0:06:40.160
the you know kind of easter eggy type

0:06:38.720,0:06:43.440
things is that like when

0:06:40.160,0:06:43.759
you enter the magic kingdom and you kind

0:06:43.440,0:06:46.560
of

0:06:43.759,0:06:47.360
walk through the tunnel the idea is

0:06:46.560,0:06:49.759
supposed to

0:06:47.360,0:06:51.919
feel like you’re at a movie premiere and

0:06:49.759,0:06:54.720
all the posters that you’re seeing

0:06:51.919,0:06:55.280
are the coming attractions and that’s

0:06:54.720,0:06:58.000
why

0:06:55.280,0:06:59.919
all of their they’re not called rides

0:06:58.000,0:07:00.720
they’re called attractions and that’s

0:06:59.919,0:07:03.440
what

0:07:00.720,0:07:04.240
they they really are like yes there are

0:07:03.440,0:07:08.720
some that are

0:07:04.240,0:07:11.560
thrill rides or thrill attractions

0:07:08.720,0:07:14.400
right here oh some of the crazy roles

0:07:11.560,0:07:16.160
absolutely you know the slingshot rides

0:07:14.400,0:07:19.199
and the roller coasters that

0:07:16.160,0:07:20.000
you know take you up and you know go

0:07:19.199,0:07:23.440
backwards

0:07:20.000,0:07:27.759
yes totally totally agree it’s it’s

0:07:23.440,0:07:31.199
really two different you know

0:07:27.759,0:07:32.800
um genres really you have these are for

0:07:31.199,0:07:34.560
different audiences right you know i

0:07:32.800,0:07:37.280
would not classify

0:07:34.560,0:07:38.560
hershey park you know or or six flags

0:07:37.280,0:07:41.599
like you said with

0:07:38.560,0:07:42.800
disney you know like if i wanted a thing

0:07:41.599,0:07:45.599
like a theme park

0:07:42.800,0:07:46.240
is an immersive experience you know you

0:07:45.599,0:07:49.599
go to

0:07:46.240,0:07:51.520
orlando universal orlando you’re going

0:07:49.599,0:07:52.000
for the harry potter experience or

0:07:51.520,0:07:54.160
whatever

0:07:52.000,0:07:55.919
right you go to disney you’re going for

0:07:54.160,0:07:57.440
the disney experience or the star wars

0:07:55.919,0:07:59.759
experience or the

0:07:57.440,0:08:01.840
animal kingdom whatever it is right it’s

0:07:59.759,0:08:02.879
themed it’s there to immerse you and to

0:08:01.840,0:08:04.800
keep you occupied

0:08:02.879,0:08:06.960
everything keeps you occupied right

0:08:04.800,0:08:09.280
whereas you go to a six flags

0:08:06.960,0:08:10.960
and you’re going there for the rides and

0:08:09.280,0:08:13.599
and that’s really what you’re there for

0:08:10.960,0:08:14.879
right even sea world like what what is

0:08:13.599,0:08:17.759
aside from being

0:08:14.879,0:08:19.280
sea themed right because they’ve got

0:08:17.759,0:08:20.240
aquariums and they paint their roller

0:08:19.280,0:08:22.560
coasters blue

0:08:20.240,0:08:24.240
right like yeah i’ve never actually been

0:08:22.560,0:08:25.120
it’s an amusement that’s an amusement

0:08:24.240,0:08:27.840
park to me

0:08:25.120,0:08:28.560
and you know what i could almost up it a

0:08:27.840,0:08:33.360
little

0:08:28.560,0:08:37.039
a little bit higher quality than

0:08:33.360,0:08:40.240
you know a a local theme park

0:08:37.039,0:08:43.200
right but

0:08:40.240,0:08:44.240
i don’t know i i and i don’t know maybe

0:08:43.200,0:08:47.279
there are people that are like

0:08:44.240,0:08:47.920
die hard sea world fans you know and i’m

0:08:47.279,0:08:51.600
sure they

0:08:47.920,0:08:54.320
are but right i guess my point is that

0:08:51.600,0:08:55.680
it’s to me it’s not a theme park it’s an

0:08:54.320,0:08:58.560
amusement park right

0:08:55.680,0:08:59.680
you’re now for the immersive experience

0:08:58.560,0:09:03.600
right and i could see

0:08:59.680,0:09:05.440
doing a strictly roller coaster

0:09:03.600,0:09:08.080
you know because six flags has their new

0:09:05.440,0:09:09.680

0:09:27.279,0:09:30.720
coasters and

0:09:28.480,0:09:32.720
you know these uh roller coasters coney

0:09:30.720,0:09:33.680
island right you know these roller

0:09:32.720,0:09:36.320
coaster

0:09:33.680,0:09:37.839
uh enthusiasts who you know they have

0:09:36.320,0:09:40.000
their own list

0:09:37.839,0:09:40.880
there are people that vacation and

0:09:40.000,0:09:43.440
travel around

0:09:40.880,0:09:44.959
right just to do you know so nobody’s

0:09:43.440,0:09:45.680
going to disney for a roller coaster

0:09:44.959,0:09:47.920
experience

0:09:45.680,0:09:49.120
right now i’m going for the haunted

0:09:47.920,0:09:52.320
mansion but that’s just

0:09:49.120,0:09:54.160
right so i have to question

0:09:52.320,0:09:55.760
the methodology in which they did this

0:09:54.160,0:09:57.440
it clearly wasn’t a particularly

0:09:55.760,0:09:58.320
scientific one especially since they’re

0:09:57.440,0:10:00.800
editors

0:09:58.320,0:10:02.720
right pick the 400 and then ask people

0:10:00.800,0:10:06.000
and then said out of these 400s which

0:10:02.720,0:10:07.920
which did you like right so yeah

0:10:06.000,0:10:09.519
as much as i don’t have a problem

0:10:07.920,0:10:11.279
busting on disney

0:10:09.519,0:10:12.800
and and giving them digs when they

0:10:11.279,0:10:14.240
deserve it right i don’t think they

0:10:12.800,0:10:14.560
deserve the better press on this one

0:10:14.240,0:10:17.440
here

0:10:14.560,0:10:19.200
right right anyway what they might

0:10:17.440,0:10:20.640
deserve bad press on is when you

0:10:19.200,0:10:22.640
actually get on a ride

0:10:20.640,0:10:24.959
but it doesn’t work you’re stuck let’s

0:10:22.640,0:10:27.839
talk about that so this story

0:10:24.959,0:10:29.600
also comes from inside the magic um you

0:10:27.839,0:10:32.000
know so obviously when somebody is

0:10:29.600,0:10:34.320
planning a trip to walt disney world it

0:10:32.000,0:10:35.519
hopefully will be one of the most

0:10:34.320,0:10:37.760
magical trips

0:10:35.519,0:10:39.040
that a person will take and of course

0:10:37.760,0:10:41.360
you have you know

0:10:39.040,0:10:42.560
at the walt disney world resort you have

0:10:41.360,0:10:45.120
the magic kingdom and

0:10:42.560,0:10:46.079
epcot and hollywood studios and animal

0:10:45.120,0:10:48.560
kingdom

0:10:46.079,0:10:49.920
and you know the various water parks and

0:10:48.560,0:10:50.800
then the shopping district and

0:10:49.920,0:10:54.079
everything

0:10:50.800,0:10:55.519
um you know so you would hope that

0:10:54.079,0:10:58.880
things go smoothly

0:10:55.519,0:11:01.600
on your trip but obviously things happen

0:10:58.880,0:11:02.399
you know just like anything else things

0:11:01.600,0:11:05.440
break down

0:11:02.399,0:11:08.000
people gets you know things get stuck

0:11:05.440,0:11:09.279
um and this is actually what had

0:11:08.000,0:11:12.800
happened so

0:11:09.279,0:11:15.839
um there was a bunch of people that were

0:11:12.800,0:11:16.640
on a ride and unfortunately the ride got

0:11:15.839,0:11:19.200
stuck

0:11:16.640,0:11:20.320
to the point where most of the guests

0:11:19.200,0:11:23.519
were stuck for about

0:11:20.320,0:11:25.360
20 minutes until they could get these

0:11:23.519,0:11:28.000
guests the cast members could get them

0:11:25.360,0:11:29.440
off but somebody had actually shared a

0:11:28.000,0:11:31.440
video on tick tock

0:11:29.440,0:11:33.680
and the video shows a group of guests

0:11:31.440,0:11:37.839
who were stuck on the mine train

0:11:33.680,0:11:39.920
um while singing a neil diamond classic

0:11:37.839,0:11:40.880
so the user also shared some key

0:11:39.920,0:11:42.959
information

0:11:40.880,0:11:45.680
saying that i think we waited for about

0:11:42.959,0:11:48.560
20 minutes we had some young ladies who

0:11:45.680,0:11:48.880
threw on some music from their phone and

0:11:48.560,0:11:51.600
it

0:11:48.880,0:11:52.639
kind of lightened the mood um they’re

0:11:51.600,0:11:54.720
the ones that really

0:11:52.639,0:11:57.040
deserve the credit they got the party

0:11:54.720,0:11:58.160
started it you know quickly turned from

0:11:57.040,0:12:01.200
every being

0:11:58.160,0:12:03.680
frustrated to something very funny

0:12:01.200,0:12:04.560
where everybody started singing sweet

0:12:03.680,0:12:07.760
caroline

0:12:04.560,0:12:08.639
while waiting on them so that’s where

0:12:07.760,0:12:11.839
you kind of

0:12:08.639,0:12:13.839
you know you take a bad time and you

0:12:11.839,0:12:17.279
kind of turn it into something new

0:12:13.839,0:12:17.920
um so obviously um one of the things

0:12:17.279,0:12:20.399
that

0:12:17.920,0:12:21.200
one of the things that they do is when

0:12:20.399,0:12:23.120
guests

0:12:21.200,0:12:24.720
get stuck on rods they’ll usually try

0:12:23.120,0:12:27.360
and compensate you

0:12:24.720,0:12:28.160
uh for the time that you were there by

0:12:27.360,0:12:31.120
giving you

0:12:28.160,0:12:33.440
some sort of uh fast pass that can be

0:12:31.120,0:12:36.399
used on pretty much any ride

0:12:33.440,0:12:36.959
at any time to kind of make up for it um

0:12:36.399,0:12:38.959
so

0:12:36.959,0:12:40.320
the they had mentioned in the article

0:12:38.959,0:12:41.120
that they were giving out the fast

0:12:40.320,0:12:42.880
passes

0:12:41.120,0:12:44.880
that they could be used for a single

0:12:42.880,0:12:47.279
turn just on anything

0:12:44.880,0:12:48.000
that wasn’t peter pan for some reason

0:12:47.279,0:12:50.560
but

0:12:48.000,0:12:53.600
everybody had a good time and nobody was

0:12:50.560,0:12:56.079
hurt obviously which is a good thing

0:12:53.600,0:12:56.800
just inconvenienced by the ride breaking

0:12:56.079,0:12:59.360
down which

0:12:56.800,0:13:00.639
it happens well and we’ve had situations

0:12:59.360,0:13:01.200
where we’ve been on rides that have

0:13:00.639,0:13:04.560
gotten

0:13:01.200,0:13:06.079
stuck or they’ve slowed the ride a lot

0:13:04.560,0:13:08.720
of times if it’s a continuous

0:13:06.079,0:13:09.600
loop ride right they’ll slow them to

0:13:08.720,0:13:13.040
allow

0:13:09.600,0:13:13.600
um handicapped folks right to get on and

0:13:13.040,0:13:15.920
get off

0:13:13.600,0:13:17.519
right uh or if it’s busy you know we’ve

0:13:15.920,0:13:19.279
been on parts of the caribbean where

0:13:17.519,0:13:20.320
we’ve been backed up in the boat queue

0:13:19.279,0:13:23.040
for

0:13:20.320,0:13:24.320
15 20 minutes right right which isn’t so

0:13:23.040,0:13:24.639
bad because you’re in air conditioning

0:13:24.320,0:13:26.720
so

0:13:24.639,0:13:28.160
right and and the one ride we never

0:13:26.720,0:13:29.040
really have a problem getting stuck on

0:13:28.160,0:13:30.720
his haunted mansion

0:13:29.040,0:13:32.000
right and we’ve had that happen a few

0:13:30.720,0:13:33.920
years i had it happened one time when we

0:13:32.000,0:13:35.440
were going backwards down the field

0:13:33.920,0:13:37.279
i did too it was kind of like a nice

0:13:35.440,0:13:39.360
little nap right yeah that’s definitely

0:13:37.279,0:13:40.959
one i never mind getting stuck i’m like

0:13:39.360,0:13:42.800
you could just leave me for like five

0:13:40.959,0:13:44.639
hours i’d be and it’s like snacks

0:13:42.800,0:13:46.639
the best place that i’ve ever gotten

0:13:44.639,0:13:47.839
stuck was on hornet mansion in the

0:13:46.639,0:13:49.839
seance room yes

0:13:47.839,0:13:51.920
that was a good place to get stuck or

0:13:49.839,0:13:53.360
right during the ballroom scene

0:13:51.920,0:13:55.120
yeah anywhere in the ballroom someplace

0:13:53.360,0:13:56.480
where you got a good view and we weren’t

0:13:55.120,0:13:59.360
stuck for very long no

0:13:56.480,0:14:01.440
usually just a couple of minutes never

0:13:59.360,0:14:04.240
been evacuated from a ride there

0:14:01.440,0:14:05.440
maddie and i were evacuated from winnie

0:14:04.240,0:14:07.839
the pooh

0:14:05.440,0:14:09.199
i remember that we and we were actually

0:14:07.839,0:14:11.360
almost towards

0:14:09.199,0:14:12.639
the end we were in like the heffalump in

0:14:11.360,0:14:15.279
woozles

0:14:12.639,0:14:17.279
section and we had to walk out so that

0:14:15.279,0:14:19.120
one was kind of like oh really this is

0:14:17.279,0:14:19.760
where we get to walk out like it wasn’t

0:14:19.120,0:14:23.040
like

0:14:19.760,0:14:25.760
something like that we’ve been on

0:14:23.040,0:14:26.320
the people mover where space mountain

0:14:25.760,0:14:27.839
has been

0:14:26.320,0:14:29.920
shut down and lit up which is kind of

0:14:27.839,0:14:30.880
neat yeah that’s a that’s a nice little

0:14:29.920,0:14:32.639
bonus tree

0:14:30.880,0:14:34.000
right you know when you get to see that

0:14:32.639,0:14:37.120
because most

0:14:34.000,0:14:38.880
you know 99 percent of the time it’s

0:14:37.120,0:14:41.600
pitch black pitch black and you can’t

0:14:38.880,0:14:44.560
see anything so on those rare occasions

0:14:41.600,0:14:46.399
where the lights are on it it’s like we

0:14:44.560,0:14:48.160
did have that one year we went down and

0:14:46.399,0:14:51.199
we had sam with us and sam

0:14:48.160,0:14:53.920
was on three rides that broke down

0:14:51.199,0:14:55.920
he was on the board kid three rides

0:14:53.920,0:14:57.680
broke down and then one ride broke down

0:14:55.920,0:15:00.079
as he was standing in line to get onto

0:14:57.680,0:15:02.880
it right right so that was a rough

0:15:00.079,0:15:03.760
that was a rough yeah the one time we

0:15:02.880,0:15:07.519
got stuck

0:15:03.760,0:15:09.760
before we even made it on test track

0:15:07.519,0:15:12.000
it was maddie sam and i and they ended

0:15:09.760,0:15:14.880
up giving us fast passes

0:15:12.000,0:15:15.760
for a return uh you know but then we

0:15:14.880,0:15:18.320
also had an

0:15:15.760,0:15:19.120
instance and this is one of our favorite

0:15:18.320,0:15:22.720
instances

0:15:19.120,0:15:26.240
of of stuck was we were doing a photo

0:15:22.720,0:15:27.120
right uh a photo op visa disney visa

0:15:26.240,0:15:28.720
photo op

0:15:27.120,0:15:30.480
you they’d have they used to have this

0:15:28.720,0:15:32.480
special area where you could go

0:15:30.480,0:15:34.320
show your visa card and they usually had

0:15:32.480,0:15:36.160
like one or two characters

0:15:34.320,0:15:38.000
um you know and you would get a free

0:15:36.160,0:15:40.880
photo with it and

0:15:38.000,0:15:42.480
as soon as we got in something happened

0:15:40.880,0:15:44.079
with the cast members camera

0:15:42.480,0:15:45.759
right and we weren’t even first they had

0:15:44.079,0:15:46.880
gone through a couple of right they had

0:15:45.759,0:15:48.480
gone through a bunch of other

0:15:46.880,0:15:49.920
families and by the time they got to us

0:15:48.480,0:15:51.199
they were like hey we have to change out

0:15:49.920,0:15:54.240
the cameras

0:15:51.199,0:15:54.639
you’re already in here whatever and i

0:15:54.240,0:15:56.720
don’t know

0:15:54.639,0:15:58.560
like 15 minutes it was usually 15. it

0:15:56.720,0:16:00.320
was easily 15 minutes

0:15:58.560,0:16:02.079
and we and the characters were still in

0:16:00.320,0:16:02.880
there like the characters didn’t go off

0:16:02.079,0:16:05.519
stage

0:16:02.880,0:16:09.519
they stayed and played duck duck goose

0:16:05.519,0:16:11.920
right ducked up goose and heidi

0:16:09.519,0:16:12.959
it was incredible that was probably our

0:16:11.920,0:16:14.399
most favorite

0:16:12.959,0:16:15.920
at that point we didn’t even care if we

0:16:14.399,0:16:17.519
got a picture because we were taking

0:16:15.920,0:16:19.279
pictures like crazy with the characters

0:16:17.519,0:16:21.120
playing with us right right and taking

0:16:19.279,0:16:22.959
video and stuff so you know sometimes

0:16:21.120,0:16:24.959
when you have those stuck moments

0:16:22.959,0:16:26.560
yeah they turn out to be kind of magical

0:16:24.959,0:16:27.600
and that’s what i like about this story

0:16:26.560,0:16:30.320
it was

0:16:27.600,0:16:32.000
the the people on the ride kind of made

0:16:30.320,0:16:33.440
the best of the movie right like hey

0:16:32.000,0:16:33.920
we’re here we’re stuck what are we going

0:16:33.440,0:16:36.000
to do

0:16:33.920,0:16:36.959
let’s do a sing-along and then you get

0:16:36.000,0:16:38.959
off the ride

0:16:36.959,0:16:40.079
and you know they give you your fast

0:16:38.959,0:16:42.000
passes right

0:16:40.079,0:16:43.279
so that that was that was kind of a cool

0:16:42.000,0:16:45.360
story yeah yeah

0:16:43.279,0:16:47.839
so that was all we had for our disney

0:16:45.360,0:16:51.839
detective we’ll be right back with our

0:16:47.839,0:16:51.839
tales from the edge of the galaxy

0:18:04.559,0:18:09.480
go for tails from the edge of the galaxy

0:18:07.360,0:18:12.640
so our first story comes from

0:18:09.480,0:18:15.919
thedirect.com and it talks about how

0:18:12.640,0:18:18.400
while the mcu has been cranking out

0:18:15.919,0:18:18.960
you know we’re up to now three disney

0:18:18.400,0:18:22.320
pla uh

0:18:18.960,0:18:23.600
series on disney plus star wars fans are

0:18:22.320,0:18:26.320
kind of still looking

0:18:23.600,0:18:28.720
to you know what’s the future of the

0:18:26.320,0:18:31.360
mandalorians third season

0:18:28.720,0:18:33.520
so the first ever live-action star wars

0:18:31.360,0:18:35.840
series obviously was a massive hit

0:18:33.520,0:18:37.600
it established baby yoda as a pop

0:18:35.840,0:18:40.080
culture phenomenon

0:18:37.600,0:18:40.080
because of course

0:18:40.960,0:18:44.240
because of course he’s located all over

0:18:42.480,0:18:47.120
the place here uh and

0:18:44.240,0:18:48.160
season two blew our minds like a

0:18:47.120,0:18:51.520
christmas miracle

0:18:48.160,0:18:51.919
with luke skywalker making a cameo uh in

0:18:51.520,0:18:55.440
this

0:18:51.919,0:18:58.559
episode’s final revealed um you know

0:18:55.440,0:18:59.520
subversive uh fan expectation in a

0:18:58.559,0:19:01.280
different way

0:18:59.520,0:19:02.960
so and then of course you have the

0:19:01.280,0:19:06.080
post-credits scene

0:19:02.960,0:19:09.280
in the star wars you know uh that showed

0:19:06.080,0:19:12.160
the new project of the book of boba fett

0:19:09.280,0:19:13.679
which obviously let us know that you

0:19:12.160,0:19:16.559
know mando season three

0:19:13.679,0:19:19.039
wasn’t going to be the next thing coming

0:19:16.559,0:19:22.160
so this kind of left everybody wondering

0:19:19.039,0:19:24.880
what the future held for the mandalorian

0:19:22.160,0:19:27.039
and obviously what was going to happen

0:19:24.880,0:19:27.760
with grogu since at the end of the

0:19:27.039,0:19:31.120
season

0:19:27.760,0:19:34.240
he left with luke spoilers um

0:19:31.120,0:19:37.360
so in the star wars sessions podcast

0:19:34.240,0:19:38.000
the mandalorian stunt double uh brendan

0:19:37.360,0:19:40.320
wayne who

0:19:38.000,0:19:41.760
happens to be john wayne’s grandson

0:19:40.320,0:19:44.400
which i thought that was kind of

0:19:41.760,0:19:45.840
you know an interesting little thing had

0:19:44.400,0:19:48.559
a few things to share

0:19:45.840,0:19:49.200
about what fans can expect from the

0:19:48.559,0:19:52.400
eventual

0:19:49.200,0:19:54.000
third season um and he kind of said that

0:19:52.400,0:19:56.559
there would be a lot less

0:19:54.000,0:19:57.760
introductions and it they would kind of

0:19:56.559,0:20:01.039
delve deeper

0:19:57.760,0:20:03.440
into the character so we know that

0:20:01.039,0:20:04.960
leading actor pedro pascal provides the

0:20:03.440,0:20:08.559
voice of mando

0:20:04.960,0:20:11.760
um but a lot of the movements

0:20:08.559,0:20:12.720
and and the mannerisms we actually it’s

0:20:11.760,0:20:15.280
actually

0:20:12.720,0:20:15.919
brendan that we see uh doing a lot of

0:20:15.280,0:20:18.720
that

0:20:15.919,0:20:19.120
um so he’s you know largely responsible

0:20:18.720,0:20:21.520
for

0:20:19.120,0:20:22.720
creating the stature and and like i said

0:20:21.520,0:20:24.400
the mannerisms

0:20:22.720,0:20:26.400
so when he was asked about the third

0:20:24.400,0:20:28.559
season you know was it going to be

0:20:26.400,0:20:29.840
bigger than both season one and two he

0:20:28.559,0:20:31.440
he kind of shared

0:20:29.840,0:20:32.960
his thoughts and he said i think we’ve

0:20:31.440,0:20:36.720
introduced the world

0:20:32.960,0:20:38.720
in which mando now exit exists now

0:20:36.720,0:20:39.919
not that there are going to be a lot of

0:20:38.720,0:20:41.440
new things

0:20:39.919,0:20:44.000
he says i think there’s going to be a

0:20:41.440,0:20:46.240
lot less introductions and a lot more

0:20:44.000,0:20:48.799
going back towards the first season of

0:20:46.240,0:20:51.600
delving deeper into the character

0:20:48.799,0:20:53.760
and things like that um you know when we

0:20:51.600,0:20:56.159
left mando at the end of season two he

0:20:53.760,0:20:59.280
was now in possession of the dark saber

0:20:56.159,0:21:01.280
and he had just separated from grogu uh

0:20:59.280,0:21:03.200
the episode ended before

0:21:01.280,0:21:04.559
you know he had time to process either

0:21:03.200,0:21:06.880
event not to mention

0:21:04.559,0:21:09.520
that his own mandalorian belief system

0:21:06.880,0:21:11.520
had now kind of went

0:21:09.520,0:21:12.640
you know mind-blowing like what do i do

0:21:11.520,0:21:15.200
now um

0:21:12.640,0:21:16.720
and then of course grogu leaving off

0:21:15.200,0:21:20.159
with luke skywalker

0:21:16.720,0:21:22.400
so how is that going to change um

0:21:20.159,0:21:24.080
so they had asked him you know have you

0:21:22.400,0:21:25.600
you know have you heard things

0:21:24.080,0:21:27.440
you know did you have you read any of

0:21:25.600,0:21:28.720
the scripts and he said no well have you

0:21:27.440,0:21:32.159
heard some things and

0:21:28.720,0:21:34.400
he said yeah you know but i can only

0:21:32.159,0:21:36.000
you know kind of assume where they’re

0:21:34.400,0:21:38.799
going you know right now

0:21:36.000,0:21:40.159
the storytelling is it’s john you know

0:21:38.799,0:21:44.240
favreau’s story

0:21:40.159,0:21:46.120
so however he wants to lead the story

0:21:44.240,0:21:47.600
um you know so obviously there are

0:21:46.120,0:21:49.919
speculations

0:21:47.600,0:21:52.320
that you know john favreau and dave

0:21:49.919,0:21:54.000
filoni have plans to see the galaxy’s

0:21:52.320,0:21:56.960
favorite father figure

0:21:54.000,0:21:58.000
even earlier than that um you know so

0:21:56.960,0:22:01.120
now you have

0:21:58.000,0:22:03.360
boba fett and that whole story um

0:22:01.120,0:22:05.520
it seems that there was a leaked t-shirt

0:22:03.360,0:22:06.960
of the crew from the book of boba fett

0:22:05.520,0:22:10.159
that shows a little grogu

0:22:06.960,0:22:12.799
in the artwork so does that mean that

0:22:10.159,0:22:17.039
mando will have another adventure or two

0:22:12.799,0:22:19.840
in you know book of boba fett

0:22:17.039,0:22:21.280
is he gonna kind of just stay in the

0:22:19.840,0:22:22.640
back and then you’ll just wait to see

0:22:21.280,0:22:25.520
him in the mandalorian

0:22:22.640,0:22:27.039
so a lot of speculation you know nothing

0:22:25.520,0:22:29.440
really concrete

0:22:27.039,0:22:30.320
but obviously we know that we’re not

0:22:29.440,0:22:32.799
getting

0:22:30.320,0:22:33.520
the the third season yet because book of

0:22:32.799,0:22:35.280
boba fett

0:22:33.520,0:22:37.840
is going to come first well i have to

0:22:35.280,0:22:40.880
say it’s kind of a relief to hear this

0:22:37.840,0:22:43.200
because you figure you had

0:22:40.880,0:22:44.559
what they tried to spawn three different

0:22:43.200,0:22:46.400
shows out of last season

0:22:44.559,0:22:48.080
true true only gonna get two out of it

0:22:46.400,0:22:51.840
at this point but it was

0:22:48.080,0:22:53.039
it was too much right it was almost like

0:22:51.840,0:22:56.159
all the guest spots

0:22:53.039,0:22:57.039
overshadowed the mandalorian right and

0:22:56.159,0:22:59.520
it wasn’t like

0:22:57.039,0:23:00.320
the mandalorian season two it was like

0:22:59.520,0:23:02.559
everyone else

0:23:00.320,0:23:03.840
and the mandalorian season two here’s

0:23:02.559,0:23:06.400
all our cameos of

0:23:03.840,0:23:07.919
what you can see later on right so not

0:23:06.400,0:23:09.440
in the mandalorian we need to get an

0:23:07.919,0:23:10.799
ahsoka show let’s get her in there right

0:23:09.440,0:23:12.720
now we need to get a boba fett show

0:23:10.799,0:23:14.400
let’s do that uh we need to do the

0:23:12.720,0:23:16.000
rangers of the republic let’s do those

0:23:14.400,0:23:18.880
guys right and it was like

0:23:16.000,0:23:19.840
every show these people were were

0:23:18.880,0:23:21.919
appearing

0:23:19.840,0:23:24.159
but they weren’t really lending a whole

0:23:21.919,0:23:25.760
lot to the overall

0:23:24.159,0:23:27.760
plot of the season right i could

0:23:25.760,0:23:29.600
definitely see them kind of going back

0:23:27.760,0:23:32.880
towards

0:23:29.600,0:23:35.280
you know a season one mentality give us

0:23:32.880,0:23:37.280
a little bit more history about

0:23:35.280,0:23:39.360
how he came to be like you know they

0:23:37.280,0:23:42.720
always show these little

0:23:39.360,0:23:43.919
uh you know flashbacks of things with

0:23:42.720,0:23:46.559
his parents and

0:23:43.919,0:23:48.240
you know you know let’s let’s see his

0:23:46.559,0:23:50.880
teenage years let’s see

0:23:48.240,0:23:52.640
you know him growing up and and dealing

0:23:50.880,0:23:55.440
with the other mandalorians and being

0:23:52.640,0:23:56.080
accepted and and and doing all of that

0:23:55.440,0:23:59.200
so

0:23:56.080,0:24:00.880
so question came up today on uh twitter

0:23:59.200,0:24:02.720
i think it was on star wars feat or

0:24:00.880,0:24:05.440
something like that okay

0:24:02.720,0:24:07.919
what gave you more goosebumps vader at

0:24:05.440,0:24:11.520
the end of rogue one or skywalker at the

0:24:07.919,0:24:11.520
end of season two of mando

0:24:14.159,0:24:20.320
my answer was more goosebumps for vader

0:24:17.360,0:24:21.520
more tears for luke because it was a

0:24:20.320,0:24:24.960
very emotional

0:24:21.520,0:24:28.400
yes experience i i definitely

0:24:24.960,0:24:29.440
yeah i i would say goosebumps equal

0:24:28.400,0:24:32.480
goosebumps

0:24:29.440,0:24:34.400
but yes i definitely cried when i when i

0:24:32.480,0:24:36.320
all of a sudden realized it was luke

0:24:34.400,0:24:37.360
yeah and i was a much longer sequence

0:24:36.320,0:24:40.880
than vader got too

0:24:37.360,0:24:45.360
yes but definitely the shock and

0:24:40.880,0:24:46.240
awe of vader where i know you were like

0:24:45.360,0:24:48.320
peter

0:24:46.240,0:24:49.600
you were cheering him i was like no he’s

0:24:48.320,0:24:52.640
gonna kill people

0:24:49.600,0:24:54.000
you know but it was still like dude he’s

0:24:52.640,0:24:57.440
a

0:24:54.000,0:25:00.480
bad a yeah um yeah

0:24:57.440,0:25:01.679
so yeah yeah i thought that was a really

0:25:00.480,0:25:03.120
good question that is a good question

0:25:01.679,0:25:07.520
that is a good one i like that

0:25:03.120,0:25:07.520
so let’s take a little detour

0:25:07.760,0:25:12.640
that was good uh this was actually a

0:25:10.640,0:25:13.440
story that we had brought up a couple of

0:25:12.640,0:25:16.720
weeks back

0:25:13.440,0:25:19.480
but it happened to to pop up again um

0:25:16.720,0:25:20.880
you know so disney this uh comes from

0:25:19.480,0:25:23.200
scifi.com

0:25:20.880,0:25:25.360
uh so disney plus may be the home of all

0:25:23.200,0:25:28.480
kinds of new star wars content

0:25:25.360,0:25:31.039
from space westerns like the mandalorian

0:25:28.480,0:25:32.720
now you have uh you know the bad batch

0:25:31.039,0:25:35.279
animated series

0:25:32.720,0:25:38.080
um but don’t expect the long shelved

0:25:35.279,0:25:39.039
animated series star wars detours to be

0:25:38.080,0:25:42.240
joining

0:25:39.039,0:25:42.880
the lineup anytime soon so series

0:25:42.240,0:25:45.039
creators

0:25:42.880,0:25:47.200
uh seth green had actually told

0:25:45.039,0:25:49.279
entertainment weekly that despite

0:25:47.200,0:25:51.200
star wars creator george lucas’s

0:25:49.279,0:25:54.080
involvement in the project

0:25:51.200,0:25:55.360
and the completion of 39 finished

0:25:54.080,0:25:58.159
broadcast ready

0:25:55.360,0:25:59.600
episodes it has basically been shelved

0:25:58.159,0:26:02.159
indefinitely

0:25:59.600,0:26:02.640
interesting fact is that uh seth green

0:26:02.159,0:26:05.919
actually

0:26:02.640,0:26:09.440
voiced is it toto sure uh

0:26:05.919,0:26:12.559
360 who was a techno service droid

0:26:09.440,0:26:14.799
on a recent episode of bad batch he said

0:26:12.559,0:26:15.520
we finished the episodes almost 10 years

0:26:14.799,0:26:18.720
ago

0:26:15.520,0:26:21.120
and so there would be a bit of you know

0:26:18.720,0:26:22.159
reconfiguring of the existing stuff to

0:26:21.120,0:26:25.600
make something

0:26:22.159,0:26:29.200
that disney plus would release as a

0:26:25.600,0:26:31.039
lucasfilm offering um but all that way

0:26:29.200,0:26:33.200
you know it’s been explained to me that

0:26:31.039,0:26:35.120
there just hasn’t been enough

0:26:33.200,0:26:36.559
interest high enough up to go through

0:26:35.120,0:26:38.880
that um

0:26:36.559,0:26:40.240
you know that it would take to you know

0:26:38.880,0:26:41.679
what it would take to put it out that

0:26:40.240,0:26:43.440
there’s just not an interest of

0:26:41.679,0:26:46.720
releasing the content

0:26:43.440,0:26:47.760
on disney plus from lucasfilms so star

0:26:46.720,0:26:50.080
wars detours

0:26:47.760,0:26:53.279
um as we had talked about before was

0:26:50.080,0:26:56.000
announced actually back in 2012

0:26:53.279,0:26:58.159
at star wars celebration and would have

0:26:56.000,0:27:02.159
been another partnership between

0:26:58.159,0:27:05.279
lucasfilm animation and robot chicken

0:27:02.159,0:27:07.600
matt senrick and seth green

0:27:05.279,0:27:08.480
following the studios three star wars

0:27:07.600,0:27:11.600
specials

0:27:08.480,0:27:13.440
which of you know each of them you know

0:27:11.600,0:27:16.080
were lovingly lampooning

0:27:13.440,0:27:18.480
the franchise um so the episodes were

0:27:16.080,0:27:20.240
roughly about six minutes long in length

0:27:18.480,0:27:21.520
if you’re a fan of robot chicken that’s

0:27:20.240,0:27:25.039
about what each

0:27:21.520,0:27:27.360
you know episode was um for for that and

0:27:25.039,0:27:28.240
there are 62 more episodes that were

0:27:27.360,0:27:29.919
written

0:27:28.240,0:27:32.000
and were awaiting animation but

0:27:29.919,0:27:32.720
unfortunately before it could make it to

0:27:32.000,0:27:34.960
air

0:27:32.720,0:27:36.880
disney bought lucasfilms and decided to

0:27:34.960,0:27:39.520
go in a different direction

0:27:36.880,0:27:40.480
focusing on the sequel trilogy as well

0:27:39.520,0:27:43.600
as more

0:27:40.480,0:27:44.799
uh serious animated series design to

0:27:43.600,0:27:48.000
explain and build

0:27:44.799,0:27:51.279
out the universe further rather than

0:27:48.000,0:27:52.720
continuing to poke fun at it and seth

0:27:51.279,0:27:54.799
actually said you know what

0:27:52.720,0:27:57.039
i really don’t have an emotional

0:27:54.799,0:27:58.640
position because i got to spend four

0:27:57.039,0:28:00.559
straight years making something with

0:27:58.640,0:28:02.399
george lucas

0:28:00.559,0:28:04.320
he said my partner and i and all the

0:28:02.399,0:28:06.320
other people that got to work on it the

0:28:04.320,0:28:07.279
artists the actors and directors and

0:28:06.320,0:28:09.840
animators

0:28:07.279,0:28:10.960
we all got to make something star wars

0:28:09.840,0:28:14.320
with the guy who

0:28:10.960,0:28:15.440
created it um and so i know over those

0:28:14.320,0:28:17.360
four years

0:28:15.440,0:28:19.279
that you know he was having fun and

0:28:17.360,0:28:20.399
that’s what i really care about i got a

0:28:19.279,0:28:23.120
priceless

0:28:20.399,0:28:24.480
a priceless experience with one of my

0:28:23.120,0:28:26.880
truest heroes

0:28:24.480,0:28:28.960
and got to see him laugh and enjoy all

0:28:26.880,0:28:31.440
the things that he had created

0:28:28.960,0:28:32.480
in a time before he agreed to sell them

0:28:31.440,0:28:35.520
all to somebody

0:28:32.480,0:28:38.000
else green also went on to say it’s not

0:28:35.520,0:28:40.080
that i don’t care if people never see it

0:28:38.000,0:28:42.399
it’s just that it’s ultimately doesn’t

0:28:40.080,0:28:45.120
matter if nobody ever sees it because

0:28:42.399,0:28:46.720
nobody can take that away from any of us

0:28:45.120,0:28:48.880
and that’s the kind of thing

0:28:46.720,0:28:50.080
that would never happen again and i

0:28:48.880,0:28:52.240
realize it

0:28:50.080,0:28:54.159
um you know lucas wasn’t the only big

0:28:52.240,0:28:54.960
name who was working on the project you

0:28:54.159,0:28:58.000
had billy d

0:28:54.960,0:28:59.760
williams and anthony daniels and ahmed

0:28:58.000,0:29:01.120
best who lent their voices to the

0:28:59.760,0:29:04.080
projects uh

0:29:01.120,0:29:05.120
along with zachary uh levi weird al

0:29:04.080,0:29:08.480
yankovic

0:29:05.120,0:29:11.840
uh seth macfarlane uh and felicia day

0:29:08.480,0:29:12.880
so it’s kind of a shame when you have

0:29:11.840,0:29:16.080
all these

0:29:12.880,0:29:19.120
people involved with it but i think

0:29:16.080,0:29:22.080
you know again kind of like seth said

0:29:19.120,0:29:24.240
we had so much fun doing it they can’t

0:29:22.080,0:29:26.000
take it away from us

0:29:24.240,0:29:27.279
you know the the experience it’s just

0:29:26.000,0:29:30.880
kind of a shame

0:29:27.279,0:29:32.880
that you know and like

0:29:30.880,0:29:34.480
you know i love the the robot chicken

0:29:32.880,0:29:36.880
episodes i thought they were hilarious

0:29:34.480,0:29:39.120
they even like the family guy ones

0:29:36.880,0:29:40.880
but i think part of the problem that

0:29:39.120,0:29:41.760
disney had was an image issue with it

0:29:40.880,0:29:43.679
because you

0:29:41.760,0:29:44.799
literally were endorsing people making

0:29:43.679,0:29:46.559
fun of it

0:29:44.799,0:29:48.159
and i think anything that disney wants

0:29:46.559,0:29:49.440
to go in that direction with they’re

0:29:48.159,0:29:50.080
going to do it in a more controlled

0:29:49.440,0:29:52.480
fashion

0:29:50.080,0:29:54.080
right in a more family-friendly fashion

0:29:52.480,0:29:55.760
because the robot chicken stuff was not

0:29:54.080,0:29:56.559
really family-friendly oh absolutely i

0:29:55.760,0:29:58.159
could see it

0:29:56.559,0:30:00.240
you know like the lego star wars and

0:29:58.159,0:30:01.679
that’s what i was getting at is that

0:30:00.240,0:30:04.159
you know that’s where they do that

0:30:01.679,0:30:04.720
disney goes disney goes with the lego

0:30:04.159,0:30:06.399
stuff

0:30:04.720,0:30:08.080
because it’s all directed to kids we can

0:30:06.399,0:30:09.919
have fun with it we can play around with

0:30:08.080,0:30:13.279
it and make jokes you know

0:30:09.919,0:30:15.520
and we love those too um

0:30:13.279,0:30:17.200
so like i understand why disney didn’t

0:30:15.520,0:30:20.960
go with it

0:30:17.200,0:30:23.360
the the sense of humor that that he has

0:30:20.960,0:30:24.080
with the other projects can get a little

0:30:23.360,0:30:26.159
raunchy

0:30:24.080,0:30:27.520
right and it’s just not something that

0:30:26.159,0:30:28.960
disney you know you look at all the

0:30:27.520,0:30:29.600
other stuff that disney’s pulling the

0:30:28.960,0:30:33.120
plug on

0:30:29.600,0:30:34.799
for for things for others right

0:30:33.120,0:30:36.720
yeah at least they’re consistent i’ll

0:30:34.799,0:30:38.880
give them credit for consistency it’s a

0:30:36.720,0:30:41.039
shame to see that much work go to waste

0:30:38.880,0:30:42.880
absolutely it’s it’s not like oh we did

0:30:41.039,0:30:44.480
like five episodes like it should be

0:30:42.880,0:30:45.919
it should be there should be a bootleg

0:30:44.480,0:30:47.679
version of it released like the star

0:30:45.919,0:30:49.600
wars the original holiday special

0:30:47.679,0:30:51.279
and that’s exactly what i was thinking

0:30:49.600,0:30:54.480
is that i hope somewhere

0:30:51.279,0:30:57.679
down the line ten years from now

0:30:54.480,0:31:00.240
five years from now somebody manages to

0:30:57.679,0:31:00.799
get a copy of it and you can buy it on

0:31:00.240,0:31:02.880
ebay

0:31:00.799,0:31:05.279
yeah you know and you get the bootleg i

0:31:02.880,0:31:06.720
think i think fans deserve to see it

0:31:05.279,0:31:08.640
and they’ll appreciate it but not

0:31:06.720,0:31:10.799
through traditional disney titles

0:31:08.640,0:31:12.399
right so that was all we had for our

0:31:10.799,0:31:14.159
tales from the edge of the galaxy we’ll

0:31:12.399,0:31:18.350

go for entertainment news so our first

0:32:31.279,0:32:35.120
story comes from

0:32:32.399,0:32:36.000
we got it this cover dot com and it

0:32:35.120,0:32:39.840
seems at

0:32:36.000,0:32:42.480
you know at long last black widow is now

0:32:39.840,0:32:43.440
less than two days away from being

0:32:42.480,0:32:46.240
released

0:32:43.440,0:32:47.279
uh you know given its numerous delays

0:32:46.240,0:32:49.600
over the past year

0:32:47.279,0:32:50.399
marvel fans had become increasingly

0:32:49.600,0:32:53.039
desperate

0:32:50.399,0:32:54.720
to see the movie and had been demanding

0:32:53.039,0:32:57.679
it drop on disney plus

0:32:54.720,0:32:59.760
and forgo a theatrical run but as it

0:32:57.679,0:33:02.480
happened disney elected to release it

0:32:59.760,0:33:03.440
in both the cinemas and on streaming

0:33:02.480,0:33:06.799
with scarlett

0:33:03.440,0:33:08.080
johansson a vehicle being available to

0:33:06.799,0:33:10.960
watch online through

0:33:08.080,0:33:11.919
disney plus premier access label this

0:33:10.960,0:33:14.320
friday

0:33:11.919,0:33:16.000
so audiences you know are hungry to

0:33:14.320,0:33:17.279
watch the film from the comforter of

0:33:16.000,0:33:20.399
their own home

0:33:17.279,0:33:23.360
and are less eager you know to stream it

0:33:20.399,0:33:25.600
then but it sounds like marvel studios

0:33:23.360,0:33:26.559
themselves are less than happy about the

0:33:25.600,0:33:30.559
arrangement

0:33:26.559,0:33:33.760
so according to tipster daniel rickman

0:33:30.559,0:33:35.840
marvel’s president uh kevin feige is

0:33:33.760,0:33:37.039
not at all pleased with disney over

0:33:35.840,0:33:40.000
their uh

0:33:37.039,0:33:42.240
revised black widow release strategy in

0:33:40.000,0:33:42.799
fact the scooper had said that he was

0:33:42.240,0:33:46.320
actually

0:33:42.799,0:33:47.039
mad with the studio for releasing it on

0:33:46.320,0:33:49.519
streaming

0:33:47.039,0:33:50.480
and in the theaters at the same time so

0:33:49.519,0:33:52.960
the reason why

0:33:50.480,0:33:55.679
is because he was apparently not told

0:33:52.960,0:33:58.159
about it and wasn’t personally involved

0:33:55.679,0:34:00.159
in the decision to put black widow out

0:33:58.159,0:34:02.640
on disney plus

0:34:00.159,0:34:04.240
so if the intel is correct it would be

0:34:02.640,0:34:07.279
very surprising

0:34:04.240,0:34:08.879
say because uh feiji is one of disney’s

0:34:07.279,0:34:10.800
most lucrative partners

0:34:08.879,0:34:13.280
and he’s brought them billions upon

0:34:10.800,0:34:15.599
billions of dollars over the past decade

0:34:13.280,0:34:16.720
um you would have thought that they

0:34:15.599,0:34:18.159
would have kept him

0:34:16.720,0:34:19.919
you know in the loop that they were

0:34:18.159,0:34:21.040
doing this with one of his own

0:34:19.919,0:34:23.440
productions

0:34:21.040,0:34:25.200
however this sort of snub is key is kind

0:34:23.440,0:34:26.399
of in keeping with the outrage that

0:34:25.200,0:34:28.960
we’ve actually heard from

0:34:26.399,0:34:29.919
other filmmakers over their movies

0:34:28.960,0:34:32.800
getting put out

0:34:29.919,0:34:33.520
on the streaming release pixar seems to

0:34:32.800,0:34:35.839
be

0:34:33.520,0:34:36.639
kind of mad as well with disney for

0:34:35.839,0:34:39.440
repeatingly

0:34:36.639,0:34:40.240
sharing their efforts for free on disney

0:34:39.440,0:34:43.280
plus

0:34:40.240,0:34:44.159
um and then of course you have um you

0:34:43.280,0:34:47.280
know other

0:34:44.159,0:34:50.720
uh creative um

0:34:47.280,0:34:53.119
uh movies that have been coming out um

0:34:50.720,0:34:53.919
that you know have kind of been hitting

0:34:53.119,0:34:56.800
against

0:34:53.919,0:34:58.160
warner brothers media uh and films that

0:34:56.800,0:35:00.400
have been showing on

0:34:58.160,0:35:01.440
hbo max you had the christopher nolan

0:35:00.400,0:35:03.440
movie

0:35:01.440,0:35:05.200
and a whole bunch of other movies that

0:35:03.440,0:35:06.400
have been coming out since what the

0:35:05.200,0:35:10.240
beginning of the year

0:35:06.400,0:35:12.800
and have been only on uh

0:35:10.240,0:35:13.920
hbo max now some of them are in theaters

0:35:12.800,0:35:16.000
as well

0:35:13.920,0:35:18.240
so obviously as studios are kind of

0:35:16.000,0:35:19.920
adjusting to the changing cinematic

0:35:18.240,0:35:21.599
landscape it definitely seems like

0:35:19.920,0:35:24.000
they’re struggling to keep

0:35:21.599,0:35:26.160
both movie makers and the moviegoers

0:35:24.000,0:35:28.400
happy at the same time

0:35:26.160,0:35:30.640
um so obviously whether or not he’s

0:35:28.400,0:35:31.520
happy or not black widow can be found in

0:35:30.640,0:35:35.200
theaters

0:35:31.520,0:35:38.240
and on disney plus for 29.99

0:35:35.200,0:35:40.880
additional charge starting this friday

0:35:38.240,0:35:41.599
so i’ll give you three guesses on why

0:35:40.880,0:35:44.160
he’s not

0:35:41.599,0:35:45.200
happy and we’ll see if you hit on the

0:35:44.160,0:35:47.359
reason that i’m

0:35:45.200,0:35:48.640
i’m thinking he’s not making money

0:35:47.359,0:35:51.920
exactly

0:35:48.640,0:35:54.079
exactly so i’ll guarantee you that he

0:35:51.920,0:35:55.359
has bonuses that kick in at certain box

0:35:54.079,0:35:57.040
office levels

0:35:55.359,0:35:58.400
and absolutely he’s not going to see

0:35:57.040,0:36:00.640
those bonuses come out

0:35:58.400,0:36:01.760
because they’re not going to pull in

0:36:00.640,0:36:04.480
those numbers

0:36:01.760,0:36:05.920
and i’ll guarantee you knowing disney as

0:36:04.480,0:36:07.760
cheap as they are

0:36:05.920,0:36:09.040
they’re not going to count any of the

0:36:07.760,0:36:11.119
membership purchases

0:36:09.040,0:36:12.160
through disney plus towards that number

0:36:11.119,0:36:14.960
either

0:36:12.160,0:36:16.320
so disney who’s already got a reputation

0:36:14.960,0:36:18.400
for stiffing

0:36:16.320,0:36:19.520
you know writers and other people to

0:36:18.400,0:36:22.400
work for them

0:36:19.520,0:36:22.800
is really found a way that they can make

0:36:22.400,0:36:24.480
these

0:36:22.800,0:36:26.000
multi-million dollar movies where they

0:36:24.480,0:36:28.640
can suck the money in through

0:36:26.000,0:36:30.960
disney plus and not have to pay on their

0:36:28.640,0:36:32.240
promises their contract that promises

0:36:30.960,0:36:34.160
to the talent that they have that are

0:36:32.240,0:36:35.440
making these things right and i’ll

0:36:34.160,0:36:37.490
guarantee you you’re going to see that

0:36:35.440,0:36:38.640
same kind of problem with

0:36:37.490,0:36:41.280
[Music]

0:36:38.640,0:36:41.680
your actors as well right and we know

0:36:41.280,0:36:44.079
that

0:36:41.680,0:36:45.520
robert downey jr brought in 66 million

0:36:44.079,0:36:47.680
dollars

0:36:45.520,0:36:49.520
more than half of that because his

0:36:47.680,0:36:51.520
salary was i think 20 million

0:36:49.520,0:36:53.440
right the rest of that were bonuses

0:36:51.520,0:36:54.320
based on what the box office numbers

0:36:53.440,0:36:56.400
were right

0:36:54.320,0:36:58.800
so if a robert downey jr is going to get

0:36:56.400,0:37:00.640
stiffed on box office bonuses because

0:36:58.800,0:37:03.119
you’re going to release it on disney

0:37:00.640,0:37:04.560
plus at the same time how how much of

0:37:03.119,0:37:06.000
this talent do you really think dizzy’s

0:37:04.560,0:37:06.960
going to have to pull from at that point

0:37:06.000,0:37:08.160
in time

0:37:06.960,0:37:10.160
if you’re going to continue to stiff

0:37:08.160,0:37:11.920
your actors right disney’s going to be

0:37:10.160,0:37:13.599
making their money

0:37:11.920,0:37:15.040
and this is a this is a problem that

0:37:13.599,0:37:16.800
they’re going to have moving forward

0:37:15.040,0:37:19.520
because you’re going to have people like

0:37:16.800,0:37:21.520
like fega here who’s who’s literally

0:37:19.520,0:37:22.960
made the company more money than any

0:37:21.520,0:37:24.640
single person in the history of the

0:37:22.960,0:37:26.960
company when you look at just the

0:37:24.640,0:37:28.640
mcu movies right yeah he’s made the

0:37:26.960,0:37:30.240
company more money

0:37:28.640,0:37:31.760
and they’re gonna piss him off to the

0:37:30.240,0:37:33.680
point that he’s gonna go somewhere else

0:37:31.760,0:37:35.359
how stupid is that from a business

0:37:33.680,0:37:37.839
standpoint yeah

0:37:35.359,0:37:38.640
so again it’s disney doing it wrong

0:37:37.839,0:37:41.520
every time

0:37:38.640,0:37:43.520
almost every chance they have to do the

0:37:41.520,0:37:45.359
right thing they deliberately choose to

0:37:43.520,0:37:46.880
do it wrong it’s amazing that they’re as

0:37:45.359,0:37:47.440
successful as they are with that kind of

0:37:46.880,0:37:50.400
strategy

0:37:47.440,0:37:50.720
so here’s a question do you feel that

0:37:50.400,0:37:53.920
they

0:37:50.720,0:37:54.960
shouldn’t be streaming it i don’t think

0:37:53.920,0:37:57.359
i think you should

0:37:54.960,0:37:59.599
probably have a four week period where

0:37:57.359,0:38:01.440
it’s only in the theaters

0:37:59.599,0:38:03.119
right now it’s a three it used to be a

0:38:01.440,0:38:05.760
three month period

0:38:03.119,0:38:06.480
i think you can cut that down have a

0:38:05.760,0:38:09.520
have it release

0:38:06.480,0:38:12.800
earlier on stream but you have to have

0:38:09.520,0:38:14.480
that mega box open box opening weekend

0:38:12.800,0:38:16.960
at the box office you need to have

0:38:14.480,0:38:19.040
those those couple of weeks there where

0:38:16.960,0:38:20.720
that’s where the exclusivity is

0:38:19.040,0:38:22.400
so you’re screwing your studios you’re

0:38:20.720,0:38:22.640
screwing your actors you’re screwing

0:38:22.400,0:38:24.560
your

0:38:22.640,0:38:26.640
your directors and you’re screwing

0:38:24.560,0:38:29.040
everybody who’s involved in this success

0:38:26.640,0:38:32.079
but the thing is six months ago

0:38:29.040,0:38:32.800
you couldn’t do that i agree so what we

0:38:32.079,0:38:36.000
ran into

0:38:32.800,0:38:38.640
was a workaround what’s happening is

0:38:36.000,0:38:40.640
you can go to the theaters now right and

0:38:38.640,0:38:41.200
they are simultaneously releasing in

0:38:40.640,0:38:45.119
both

0:38:41.200,0:38:46.880
so the question is why and the answer is

0:38:45.119,0:38:48.480
because it’s more lucrative for them

0:38:46.880,0:38:51.280
well and the other thing too is not

0:38:48.480,0:38:53.599
everybody has disney plus

0:38:51.280,0:38:54.800
a lot of people do right but there are

0:38:53.599,0:38:57.760
still people that

0:38:54.800,0:38:59.119
that don’t right but 30 bucks the 10

0:38:57.760,0:39:00.560
people on our street that don’t have it

0:38:59.119,0:39:03.040
can come over and watch it with us

0:39:00.560,0:39:03.760
right but that’s that’s the thing is you

0:39:03.040,0:39:06.880
know

0:39:03.760,0:39:10.240
and there are people who enjoy

0:39:06.880,0:39:11.520
the atmosphere of going to the moon let

0:39:10.240,0:39:12.960
me ask you a question are we going to

0:39:11.520,0:39:16.320
the theater to watch this

0:39:12.960,0:39:17.599
i don’t know are we no we’re not okay

0:39:16.320,0:39:19.440
we’re not we’re going to get this on

0:39:17.599,0:39:20.880
disney plus or we’re going to wait

0:39:19.440,0:39:23.280
the six months for it to come out for

0:39:20.880,0:39:24.560
free and not pay for it six months

0:39:23.280,0:39:26.720
i didn’t want to wait six months for

0:39:24.560,0:39:27.520
milan but we did it wasn’t six months

0:39:26.720,0:39:28.960
wasn’t it three

0:39:27.520,0:39:31.119
it was however long it took for it to

0:39:28.960,0:39:32.720
come out free no because when it did

0:39:31.119,0:39:33.520
finally come out free we still didn’t

0:39:32.720,0:39:35.119
want we

0:39:33.520,0:39:36.720
right we waited even longer we waited

0:39:35.119,0:39:38.480
even longer because we had everything

0:39:36.720,0:39:40.160
else going on right but

0:39:38.480,0:39:42.000
so we’re not gonna pay the money to go

0:39:40.160,0:39:45.200
see this because disney’s not

0:39:42.000,0:39:45.599
making us okay but i mean that’s what

0:39:45.200,0:39:47.599
i’m

0:39:45.599,0:39:49.280
you know you have to give you have to

0:39:47.599,0:39:49.839
give the talent a chance to make the

0:39:49.280,0:39:52.079
money off

0:39:49.839,0:39:52.960
true true no disney wants to come out

0:39:52.079,0:39:55.440
and pay

0:39:52.960,0:39:57.440
robert downey jr his 66 million for

0:39:55.440,0:39:58.160
avengers and still release it on disney

0:39:57.440,0:39:59.839
plus

0:39:58.160,0:40:02.000
more power to him for that right but the

0:39:59.839,0:40:04.160
thing is the movie’s also been done for

0:40:02.000,0:40:06.400
over a year too and just sitting there

0:40:04.160,0:40:08.160
not making anybody any money

0:40:06.400,0:40:10.319
so why didn’t they release it on disney

0:40:08.160,0:40:11.920
plus earlier because clearly they

0:40:10.319,0:40:12.720
weren’t waiting for the okay from fakie

0:40:11.920,0:40:16.160
to release it

0:40:12.720,0:40:17.520
right yeah so it’s money

0:40:16.160,0:40:19.599
because they knew they could make more

0:40:17.520,0:40:21.599
money by releasing it in theaters and

0:40:19.599,0:40:24.079
on disney plus at the same time they’re

0:40:21.599,0:40:25.760
trying to get their cake and eat it too

0:40:24.079,0:40:27.280
and in the process they’re rubbing cake

0:40:25.760,0:40:28.800
in everybody else’s faces that

0:40:27.280,0:40:30.640
that gave them the ability to make the

0:40:28.800,0:40:34.160
money right whereas you have

0:40:30.640,0:40:35.839
you know poor pixar who

0:40:34.160,0:40:37.359
yeah all their stuff is getting released

0:40:35.839,0:40:38.000
all of their stuff is getting released

0:40:37.359,0:40:41.520
for free

0:40:38.000,0:40:44.079
there’s nothing that you know that

0:40:41.520,0:40:45.680
they’ve had where you know it’s a

0:40:44.079,0:40:49.680
premiere it’s all hey

0:40:45.680,0:40:51.040
this is out enjoy yeah so

0:40:49.680,0:40:52.480
i don’t know what the contracts look

0:40:51.040,0:40:53.599
like yeah we know that the marvel

0:40:52.480,0:40:54.800
cinematic universe

0:40:53.599,0:40:56.640
people involved and that are getting

0:40:54.800,0:40:58.960
bonuses for box office numbers

0:40:56.640,0:41:00.160
right so they’re going to piss off their

0:40:58.960,0:41:01.520
talent they’re not going to have it and

0:41:00.160,0:41:02.880
then you’re going to go through a dark

0:41:01.520,0:41:04.000
period where

0:41:02.880,0:41:05.119
disney’s not going to be able to make a

0:41:04.000,0:41:06.560
decent movie it’s going to be like the

0:41:05.119,0:41:08.160
80s all over again

0:41:06.560,0:41:10.000
i don’t know because they have so many

0:41:08.160,0:41:10.880
different things that are up and coming

0:41:10.000,0:41:14.000
i i could

0:41:10.880,0:41:14.960
i could see them you know i i could see

0:41:14.000,0:41:17.839
that whole

0:41:14.960,0:41:20.000
two-month three-month thing now it’s

0:41:17.839,0:41:22.960
available on streaming so yeah

0:41:20.000,0:41:23.680
and i would even say a month because

0:41:22.960,0:41:26.480
most

0:41:23.680,0:41:27.839
movies that are blocks box office

0:41:26.480,0:41:30.480
blockbusters

0:41:27.839,0:41:31.280
you don’t hear too much about after the

0:41:30.480,0:41:33.440
first month

0:41:31.280,0:41:35.359
right it’s your opening day your opening

0:41:33.440,0:41:37.119
weekend your opening week

0:41:35.359,0:41:38.560
and then whatever you get you know

0:41:37.119,0:41:38.960
residuals for the rest of the month

0:41:38.560,0:41:40.640
there

0:41:38.960,0:41:42.079
right right the only time you heard

0:41:40.640,0:41:43.839
about anything more than that was when

0:41:42.079,0:41:46.720
you had avengers

0:41:43.839,0:41:47.119
where they wanted to break the avatar

0:41:46.720,0:41:48.960
record

0:41:47.119,0:41:51.119
right so they they re-released it

0:41:48.960,0:41:52.800
multiple times and kind of cheated the

0:41:51.119,0:41:55.280
system to do that but then they also

0:41:52.800,0:41:57.520
re-released avatar to kind of get back

0:41:55.280,0:41:58.800
at them too right so oh and they’re all

0:41:57.520,0:42:01.280
owned by disney so

0:41:58.800,0:42:02.880
it was kind of right but my point is is

0:42:01.280,0:42:03.520
that after that first month it doesn’t

0:42:02.880,0:42:04.960
matter

0:42:03.520,0:42:06.400
because the bulk of your money’s been

0:42:04.960,0:42:06.800
made right and the majority of the

0:42:06.400,0:42:08.560
people

0:42:06.800,0:42:10.160
are going and seeing it a second or

0:42:08.560,0:42:12.640
third or fourth or fifth time

0:42:10.160,0:42:14.240
right you know by that point so that’s

0:42:12.640,0:42:15.680
where i could see that model going not

0:42:14.240,0:42:18.160
the simultaneous

0:42:15.680,0:42:20.160
okay so tell us about willy wonka so

0:42:18.160,0:42:22.640
this was a really sweet story

0:42:20.160,0:42:23.520
so uh willy wonka actually just

0:42:22.640,0:42:27.119
celebrated

0:42:23.520,0:42:31.119
its 50th anniversary uh it was actually

0:42:27.119,0:42:33.200
last week that it had hit its milestone

0:42:31.119,0:42:34.480
so this was a story that actually came

0:42:33.200,0:42:37.599
out um

0:42:34.480,0:42:41.359

0:42:52.000,0:42:55.839
so it seemed that she along with some

0:42:54.560,0:42:58.880
other co-stars

0:42:55.839,0:42:59.680
uh peter orstrum who played charlie

0:42:59.680,0:43:06.319
uh michael bol bolner

0:43:03.200,0:43:06.880

0:43:06.880,0:43:11.280

0:43:09.359,0:43:13.599
wilder in a conversation with

insider to mark the film’s 50th

0:43:13.599,0:43:18.800

0:43:15.200,0:43:21.040
so the movie was based on the 1964 novel

0:43:18.800,0:43:24.079
charlie and the chocolate factory and

0:43:21.040,0:43:28.319
the 1971 movie tells the story

0:43:24.079,0:43:31.280
of the um in set uh

0:43:28.319,0:43:32.560

0:43:37.599,0:43:41.680
wilder

0:43:39.119,0:43:44.240

0:43:41.680,0:43:47.040
golden ticket winner-winning children

0:43:44.240,0:43:49.760
to his secretive chocolate factory cole

0:43:47.040,0:43:53.760
who played veruca salt described wilder

0:43:49.760,0:43:57.359
as a kind war uh warm kind person with

0:43:53.760,0:43:59.280
piercing blue eyes um cole who said that

0:43:57.359,0:44:01.839
she was actually the only kid

0:43:59.280,0:44:03.280
in germany that didn’t have a member of

0:44:01.839,0:44:06.079
her family on set

0:44:03.280,0:44:08.000
recalled how wilder found out that she

0:44:06.079,0:44:10.880
was unaccompanied a few weeks into

0:44:08.000,0:44:12.160
filming the movie was primarily shot in

0:44:10.880,0:44:14.560
munich germany

0:44:12.160,0:44:15.839
so according to cole her mother was away

0:44:14.560,0:44:19.280
working in england

0:44:15.839,0:44:22.319
and the then 12 year old uh actress

0:44:19.280,0:44:24.800
was basically on her own on her own

0:44:22.319,0:44:26.800
while they were in germany with just a

0:44:24.800,0:44:29.359
registered chaperone

0:44:26.800,0:44:31.680
uh cole had said that what when wilder

0:44:29.359,0:44:34.880
learned that she was on her own

0:44:31.680,0:44:35.599
he ended up telling roy kinnear who

0:44:34.880,0:44:38.960
played her

0:44:35.599,0:44:40.800
on-screen father um jack albertson who

0:44:38.960,0:44:42.800
played charlie’s grandpa joe

0:44:40.800,0:44:44.480
he said look boys she’s on her own here

0:44:42.800,0:44:46.400
we gotta look out for her

0:44:44.480,0:44:47.599
and that’s what they did they took care

0:44:46.400,0:44:51.119
of her she said

0:44:47.599,0:44:53.280
um you know that was just so gene he was

0:44:51.119,0:44:55.280
very much looking around at what was

0:44:53.280,0:44:57.520
going on and taking care of everybody

0:44:55.280,0:45:01.040
else he was a very kind man

0:44:57.520,0:45:04.400
um bowler uh bo

0:45:01.040,0:45:06.400
bolner sorry also recalled a funny

0:45:04.400,0:45:08.160
interview experience that he’d had with

0:45:06.400,0:45:10.400
a german newspaper

0:45:08.160,0:45:11.280
he said you know gene doesn’t speak

0:45:10.400,0:45:13.599
german

0:45:11.280,0:45:15.200
i don’t speak english very well and the

0:45:13.599,0:45:18.160
newspaper girl didn’t speak

0:45:15.200,0:45:18.720
english at all um so gene was just very

0:45:18.160,0:45:21.599
gentle

0:45:18.720,0:45:23.839
and very nice to all of us and he tried

0:45:21.599,0:45:26.079
to make the best of the situation

0:45:23.839,0:45:28.079
um since willy wonka the movie was

0:45:26.079,0:45:29.839
released in 1971

0:45:28.079,0:45:31.119
charlie in the chocolate factory has

0:45:29.839,0:45:34.319
been remade into

0:45:31.119,0:45:37.440
musicals video games and then obviously

0:45:34.319,0:45:40.079
the 2005 tim burton movie

0:45:37.440,0:45:41.520
starring johnny demp most recently

0:45:40.079,0:45:45.040
deadline had reported

0:45:41.520,0:45:47.760
in may that they were set to come out

0:45:45.040,0:45:48.400
with an upcoming uh warner brothers

0:45:47.760,0:45:51.200
movie

0:45:48.400,0:45:53.760
that was going to be uh dealing with his

0:45:51.200,0:45:56.640
life before the chocolate factory

0:45:53.760,0:45:57.520
so the prequel is actually tentatively

0:45:56.640,0:46:00.480
slated

0:45:57.520,0:46:01.359
to be released in 2023 according to

0:46:00.480,0:46:04.480
deadline

0:46:01.359,0:46:05.280
uh peter ostrom who had played charlie

0:46:04.480,0:46:07.520
bucket

0:46:05.280,0:46:08.800
uh told the insider that he was excited

0:46:07.520,0:46:12.079
about the peak roll

0:46:08.800,0:46:13.839
uh the prequel can’t talk

0:46:12.079,0:46:15.839
he said you know that it would kind of

0:46:13.839,0:46:17.520
be nice to find out what happened to

0:46:15.839,0:46:21.119
willy wonka prior

0:46:17.520,0:46:23.280
to me meeting him so all the references

0:46:21.119,0:46:26.079
or anything new that they could do

0:46:23.280,0:46:27.119
uh can still be with willy wonka as a

0:46:26.079,0:46:30.720
positive

0:46:27.119,0:46:33.440
um and then paris who played mike tv

0:46:30.720,0:46:35.359
agreed uh and said that he’d even be

0:46:33.440,0:46:38.319
open to making a cameo

0:46:35.359,0:46:38.640
uh in the prequel if people wanted him

0:46:38.319,0:46:40.800
to

0:46:38.640,0:46:42.720
he said i think it’s nice for them that

0:46:40.800,0:46:45.040
they’re not doing a remake

0:46:42.720,0:46:46.160
uh they’re doing a prequel because it’s

0:46:45.040,0:46:48.640
a way to avoid

0:46:46.160,0:46:50.319
a direct comparison especially in the

0:46:48.640,0:46:52.000
area of gene wilder

0:46:50.319,0:46:53.920
that might always be a good thing

0:46:52.000,0:46:56.319
because he was just so wonderful

0:46:53.920,0:46:57.920
in our version of the film yeah i think

0:46:56.319,0:46:58.560
that was a that was a nice story and i

0:46:57.920,0:47:02.000
don’t think

0:46:58.560,0:47:05.839
it comes as a surprise to anybody

0:47:02.000,0:47:06.880
right um how they describe gene wilder

0:47:05.839,0:47:09.440
here because

0:47:06.880,0:47:10.240
it reflects pretty much every other

0:47:09.440,0:47:12.880
interview

0:47:10.240,0:47:15.359
or description i’ve ever seen about the

0:47:12.880,0:47:19.280
man was that he was just

0:47:15.359,0:47:21.520
a kind gentle and caring individual who

0:47:19.280,0:47:23.599
was always looking out for his co-stars

0:47:21.520,0:47:24.640
yeah yeah so that was that was a nice

0:47:23.599,0:47:28.000
thing especially with the

0:47:24.640,0:47:30.079
the 50th anniversary coming along so

0:47:28.000,0:47:33.280
we’ll be right back with our insightful

0:47:30.079,0:47:33.280
picks of the week

0:47:36.720,0:47:41.119
go for your insightful pick so my

0:47:39.200,0:47:44.880
insightful pick is actually kind of a

0:47:41.119,0:47:47.760
twofer um so they’re both based on

0:47:44.880,0:47:48.800
the same topic and it happens to be

0:47:47.760,0:47:52.240
halston

0:47:48.800,0:47:55.359
uh so first uh there is the netflix

0:47:52.240,0:47:56.000
show that just released about a month or

0:47:55.359,0:47:59.599
so ago

0:47:56.000,0:48:02.559
a five episode limited run series

0:47:59.599,0:48:03.599
which is actually based on a book that

0:48:02.559,0:48:06.079
was written about

0:48:03.599,0:48:08.000
the fashion designer and then what was

0:48:06.079,0:48:10.960
funny was after i watched

0:48:08.000,0:48:12.000
the series i ended up finding on amazon

0:48:10.960,0:48:15.599
prime

0:48:12.000,0:48:18.960
a documentary of halston

0:48:15.599,0:48:22.480
that was kind of done

0:48:18.960,0:48:25.040
as a documentary but also um

0:48:22.480,0:48:26.000
with like a little twist because some of

0:48:25.040,0:48:29.200
the

0:48:26.000,0:48:32.559
um people involved weren’t alive anymore

0:48:29.200,0:48:34.400
or weren’t available for interviews so

0:48:32.559,0:48:36.720
they had like some actors so

0:48:34.400,0:48:37.839
you know part of that was kind of cheesy

0:48:36.720,0:48:40.400
in in that

0:48:37.839,0:48:41.200
um but was interesting is that between

0:48:40.400,0:48:44.079
watching the

0:48:41.200,0:48:45.040
the um the series and also the

0:48:44.079,0:48:47.839
documentary

0:48:45.040,0:48:48.720
there were a lot of uh things that were

0:48:47.839,0:48:51.040
very similar

0:48:48.720,0:48:52.880
uh you know there there were a couple of

0:48:51.040,0:48:53.920
things obviously that the documentary

0:48:52.880,0:48:56.480
showed that the

0:48:53.920,0:48:58.079
television series didn’t show and then

0:48:56.480,0:49:01.200
you know vice versa

0:48:58.079,0:49:04.559
excuse me so if you don’t know

0:49:01.200,0:49:06.000
halston or you know not into the fashion

0:49:04.559,0:49:09.040
industry which i’m sure

0:49:06.000,0:49:12.480
you’re not i totally am so his name

0:49:09.040,0:49:14.400
built in empire his style defined an era

0:49:12.480,0:49:16.400
american fashion designer halston

0:49:14.400,0:49:17.280
skyrockets to fame before his life

0:49:16.400,0:49:20.640
starts to spin

0:49:17.280,0:49:24.240
out of control so it shows

0:49:20.640,0:49:27.119
how um you know he kind of started off

0:49:24.240,0:49:28.160
um you know he he was born and raised in

0:49:27.119,0:49:31.200
iowa

0:49:28.160,0:49:33.760
and left and and went to

0:49:31.200,0:49:34.480
new york city and was actually a hat

0:49:33.760,0:49:37.599
designer

0:49:34.480,0:49:38.880
and how he kind of came to fame was he

0:49:37.599,0:49:42.160
had designed

0:49:38.880,0:49:44.319
uh jackie kennedy’s pillbox hat

0:49:42.160,0:49:45.440
and as soon as everybody saw her wearing

0:49:44.319,0:49:47.839
that

0:49:45.440,0:49:48.480
that’s when everybody knew who halston

0:49:47.839,0:49:50.319
was

0:49:48.480,0:49:53.440
and then unfortunately within a couple

0:49:50.319,0:49:56.319
of years women stopped wearing hats

0:49:53.440,0:49:56.880
so it was like well now what do i do and

0:49:56.319,0:49:59.760
he

0:49:56.880,0:50:00.240
kind of went through the whole fashion

0:49:59.760,0:50:02.319
line

0:50:00.240,0:50:03.599
of of different things and what was very

0:50:02.319,0:50:07.760
interesting was

0:50:03.599,0:50:09.839
they showed it in the documentary

0:50:07.760,0:50:11.280
is that he would just take a piece of

0:50:09.839,0:50:14.559
fabric and just

0:50:11.280,0:50:18.160
kind of make all these weird cuts

0:50:14.559,0:50:21.359
and that became a dress or an outfit

0:50:18.160,0:50:24.079
where most fashion

0:50:21.359,0:50:24.640
uh you know designers you know would cut

0:50:24.079,0:50:26.240
this

0:50:24.640,0:50:27.839
and sew this together and sew this

0:50:26.240,0:50:28.800
together and you’d have all these

0:50:27.839,0:50:30.960
different pieces

0:50:28.800,0:50:32.880
where he was kind of known for like the

0:50:30.960,0:50:34.559
one piece of material that maybe just

0:50:32.880,0:50:36.079
had one seam

0:50:34.559,0:50:39.280
on it you know he would just kind of

0:50:36.079,0:50:40.880
look at something and just kind of know

0:50:39.280,0:50:42.720
instinctively like it was almost like it

0:50:40.880,0:50:46.000
was a piece of art uh

0:50:42.720,0:50:49.440
you know for him so you know the show

0:50:46.000,0:50:54.160
goes through um you know his heyday

0:50:49.440,0:50:57.119
and then the whole time of uh studio 54

0:50:54.160,0:50:59.119
and all the partying and you know he and

0:50:57.119,0:51:00.960
and liza minnelli actually became

0:50:59.119,0:51:02.960
like the best of friends and and

0:51:00.960,0:51:06.160
basically up until

0:51:02.960,0:51:09.760
um you know his his passing

0:51:06.160,0:51:12.800
they were still very close um

0:51:09.760,0:51:13.119
and you know just kind of sad to see you

0:51:12.800,0:51:16.319
know

0:51:13.119,0:51:19.440
the his his creativity

0:51:16.319,0:51:19.760
kind of come you know crashing down um

0:51:19.440,0:51:22.160
but

0:51:19.760,0:51:23.119
very interesting and you know the the

0:51:22.160,0:51:25.200
one thing

0:51:23.119,0:51:27.200
you know you get to see a lot of

0:51:25.200,0:51:28.960
corporate america in this because he

0:51:27.200,0:51:32.000
basically you know signs this

0:51:28.960,0:51:34.319
you know billion dollar deal um

0:51:32.000,0:51:36.559
you know to have this company kind of

0:51:34.319,0:51:39.280
come in and help take over

0:51:36.559,0:51:40.880
and in the end he basically loses the

0:51:39.280,0:51:43.599
right to his own name

0:51:40.880,0:51:45.200
um they basically hire these other

0:51:43.599,0:51:48.319
fashion designers to

0:51:45.200,0:51:51.440
create for halston you know it’s halston

0:51:48.319,0:51:54.160
by somebody else and even to this day

0:51:51.440,0:51:56.000
you can go out and buy a holston outfit

0:51:54.160,0:51:58.000
that obviously

0:51:56.000,0:51:59.520
it’s just under that name now it’s just

0:51:58.000,0:52:01.920
a corporate

0:51:59.520,0:52:03.359
name uh you know but again very

0:52:01.920,0:52:05.359
interesting and like i said

0:52:03.359,0:52:07.440
if you end up watching the show and you

0:52:05.359,0:52:08.800
want to have a little bit more factual

0:52:07.440,0:52:11.680
information

0:52:08.800,0:52:12.079
you can go and watch on amazon prime as

0:52:11.680,0:52:18.640
well

0:52:12.079,0:52:21.200
all right good pick thank you

0:52:18.640,0:52:21.839
so my pick this week is a departure from

0:52:21.200,0:52:24.559
my

0:52:21.839,0:52:26.960
typical documentary picks and it is the

0:52:24.559,0:52:28.920
movie the tomorrow war

0:52:26.960,0:52:30.240
war on amazon prime

0:52:28.920,0:52:33.119
[Music]

0:52:30.240,0:52:35.359
in the tomorrow war the world is stunned

0:52:33.119,0:52:37.200
when a group of time travelers arrive

0:52:35.359,0:52:40.960
from the year 2051

0:52:37.200,0:52:41.680
to deliver an urgent message 30 years in

0:52:40.960,0:52:44.880
the future

0:52:41.680,0:52:45.520
mankind is losing a global war against a

0:52:44.880,0:52:50.319
deadly

0:52:45.520,0:52:52.880
alien species the only hope for survival

0:52:50.319,0:52:55.280
is for soldiers and civilians from the

0:52:52.880,0:52:58.480
present to be transported to the future

0:52:55.280,0:53:00.880
and join the fight among those recruited

0:52:58.480,0:53:03.760
is a high school teacher and family man

0:53:00.880,0:53:05.599
dan forrester played by chris pratt

0:53:03.760,0:53:07.839
determined to save the world for his

0:53:05.599,0:53:09.280
young daughter dan teams up with a

0:53:07.839,0:53:11.599
brilliant scientist

0:53:09.280,0:53:14.800
and his estranged father in a desperate

0:53:11.599,0:53:16.400
quest to rewrite the fate of the planet

0:53:14.800,0:53:18.319
the premise of the movie is somewhat

0:53:16.400,0:53:21.680
unique a mix

0:53:18.319,0:53:24.400
of alien independence day and a bit of

0:53:21.680,0:53:25.520
terminator mixed in for a unique take on

0:53:24.400,0:53:28.319
time

0:53:25.520,0:53:30.079
on time traveling world ending alien

0:53:28.319,0:53:32.319
invasions

0:53:30.079,0:53:33.119
the character development is predictable

0:53:32.319,0:53:35.040
and rushed

0:53:33.119,0:53:38.079
with early scenes that are supposed to

0:53:35.040,0:53:40.319
establish certain relationship dynamics

0:53:38.079,0:53:41.760
that are almost completely forgotten

0:53:40.319,0:53:44.160
later in the movie

0:53:41.760,0:53:46.160
when they were supposed to be critical

0:53:44.160,0:53:48.240
as always chris pratt does a fantastic

0:53:46.160,0:53:50.319
job of playing chris pratt

0:53:48.240,0:53:51.280
much like nicholas cage chris pratt

0:53:50.319,0:53:53.040
plays himself

0:53:51.280,0:53:54.559
in just about every role i’ve ever seen

0:53:53.040,0:53:56.480
him in once again

0:53:54.559,0:53:57.599
showing his stunning lack of depth as an

0:53:56.480,0:53:59.920
actor

0:53:57.599,0:54:02.160
you get the same personality traits the

0:53:59.920,0:54:03.839
same quirky comments the same goofy

0:54:02.160,0:54:06.000
facial expressions

0:54:03.839,0:54:08.400
and the typical befuddled look in more

0:54:06.000,0:54:10.240
scenes than is needed from pratt

0:54:08.400,0:54:12.480
despite his lack of screen time in the

0:54:10.240,0:54:14.559
movie jk simmons steals the show with

0:54:12.480,0:54:16.559
his portrayal of pratt’s on-screen

0:54:14.559,0:54:18.400
mercenary father

0:54:16.559,0:54:19.680
the story progresses to a natural

0:54:18.400,0:54:21.680
conclusion

0:54:19.680,0:54:23.920
only to have a bit of today’s political

0:54:21.680,0:54:26.160
strafe injected into the plot to supply

0:54:23.920,0:54:27.680
us with an unneeded 45 additional

0:54:26.160,0:54:30.240
minutes to a movie

0:54:27.680,0:54:32.079
that should have ended on a high note

0:54:30.240,0:54:34.400
the last few scenes of the movie

0:54:32.079,0:54:35.280
set the present time set in the present

0:54:34.400,0:54:37.520
time

0:54:35.280,0:54:39.680
are even less believable than soldiers

0:54:37.520,0:54:42.480
from the future returning to the past to

0:54:39.680,0:54:45.599
recruit everyday citizens as a sacrifice

0:54:42.480,0:54:47.040
to an unbeatable enemy somehow in all

0:54:45.599,0:54:48.480
the twists and turns the writers

0:54:47.040,0:54:50.400
neglected to think about

0:54:48.480,0:54:52.799
sending scientists into the past to come

0:54:50.400,0:54:54.720
up with a very the very solution

0:54:52.799,0:54:56.640
to the problem that pratt’s character is

0:54:54.720,0:54:59.280
sent to the future to work on

0:54:56.640,0:55:00.880
as a last desperate measure big plot

0:54:59.280,0:55:03.200
hole there

0:55:00.880,0:55:04.480
uh up until the last present day plot

0:55:03.200,0:55:06.559
twist the movie was

0:55:04.480,0:55:08.640
entertaining just before it went off the

0:55:06.559,0:55:10.880
rails and turned into a bad remake of

0:55:08.640,0:55:13.119
john carpenter’s the thing

0:55:10.880,0:55:14.880
if you turn the movie off at the instant

0:55:13.119,0:55:16.640
the pratt character is transported back

0:55:14.880,0:55:18.480
to the present day you’ll probably find

0:55:16.640,0:55:21.440
it a much more enjoyable experience than

0:55:18.480,0:55:23.280
watching it to its boorish conclusion

0:55:21.440,0:55:25.680
one good thing about the terrible ending

0:55:23.280,0:55:27.040
jk simmons gets the bulk of the screen

0:55:25.680,0:55:30.160
time here

0:55:27.040,0:55:34.559
so it’s not a terrible movie

0:55:30.160,0:55:36.559
uh i didn’t walk out of the home theater

0:55:34.559,0:55:38.559
wishing to have that you know two hours

0:55:36.559,0:55:42.319
of my life back

0:55:38.559,0:55:45.440
um but i’ve seen better movies

0:55:42.319,0:55:48.000
and it could have been done better but

0:55:45.440,0:55:49.520
if you have amazon prime it’s free so

0:55:48.000,0:55:50.020
it’s definitely worth the price of

0:55:49.520,0:55:51.920
admission

0:55:50.020,0:55:55.200
[Laughter]

0:55:51.920,0:55:57.200
bring your own snacks and that’s it for

0:55:55.200,0:55:59.200
me that’s the tomorrow war

0:55:57.200,0:56:03.839
currently streaming on amazon prime

0:55:59.200,0:56:03.839
we’ll be right back

0:56:05.599,0:56:09.520
so afterthoughts what do we have for

0:56:08.720,0:56:11.680
after thoughts

0:56:09.520,0:56:14.000
so we’re just gonna plug what was it

0:56:11.680,0:56:16.480
though the next three months worth

0:56:14.000,0:56:17.440
of things uh because the list

0:56:16.480,0:56:19.359
fortunately

0:56:17.440,0:56:21.440
is growing so that’s kind of a good

0:56:19.359,0:56:24.559
thing uh so coming up

0:56:21.440,0:56:28.319
uh in 10 days actually

0:56:24.559,0:56:31.440
is one of our favorites zolokon

0:56:28.319,0:56:34.960
and that’ll be on saturday july 17th

0:56:31.440,0:56:38.079
uh from 10 to six uh and also

0:56:34.960,0:56:38.480
july 18th also from 10 to six and that

0:56:38.079,0:56:41.760
one

0:56:38.480,0:56:44.640
is at uh the few

0:56:41.760,0:56:46.720
diffusion the fuge uh which is in

0:56:44.640,0:56:49.920
warminster pennsylvania

0:56:46.720,0:56:50.799
um again it’s one of our favorites not

0:56:49.920,0:56:54.480
only

0:56:50.799,0:56:57.040
for um for the

0:56:54.480,0:56:57.839
the merchandise but really it’s the

0:56:57.040,0:56:59.920
venue

0:56:57.839,0:57:01.200
that’s what you know i think it’s what

0:56:59.920,0:57:04.000
five or ten bucks to

0:57:01.200,0:57:04.640
to get in it’s a relatively inexpensive

0:57:04.000,0:57:08.160
one

0:57:04.640,0:57:11.040
uh toy show um they have

0:57:08.160,0:57:13.440
uh various artists there selling their

0:57:11.040,0:57:16.160
stuff they have a couple of cosplayers

0:57:13.440,0:57:18.000
you can come dressed up if you want um

0:57:16.160,0:57:19.119
but again it’s the location that’s

0:57:18.000,0:57:22.000
that’s really cool

0:57:19.119,0:57:23.599
then of course we have monster mania uh

0:57:22.000,0:57:24.799
you have the three different dates you

0:57:23.599,0:57:27.359
