Insights Into Entertainment: Episode 75 “Delays, Distancing and Disappointments”

Just what is the cost of staying safe at Disney World during the COVID-19 crisis, we’ll get the inside scoop from so Disney employees. We’ll also look at some of the unique Disney Park items coming up for auction this month as Disney hosts the “Disneyland: The First 65 Years” auction in Sherman Oaks California on August 15th and 16th.

Films like “A Quiet Place 2”, “Top Gun: Maverick” and even a sequel to “Sonic The Hedgehog” are all getting delayed release dates. We’ve got all the details on that as well as our take on the digital versus cinematic release methods currently in play in the industry.

      • Walt Disney World in Florida began its staggered reopening process earlier this month.
      • Over 432,700 people in Florida have tested positive for COVID-19, putting the state ahead of New York in confirmed cases. 
      • Business Insider spoke to four cast members who have recently been called back to Walt Disney World regarding their experiences returning to work with new guidelines amid the pandemic.
      • Each reported feeling that Disney had thus far succeeded in creating safe conditions for reopening but described a fundamental shift in their jobs, with physical and social barriers making it harder to keep the magic alive at the “Happiest Place on Earth.”
      • “We’re encouraged by our guests’ positive feedback and cast members’ diligence for our phased reopening and are grateful for their support of the new measures we’ve added,” a Disney spokesperson said in a statement. “We are taking a cautious and deliberate approach which allows us to evaluate and adjust along the way, as the situation evolves.”
        • For Kristen Gainey, the pandemic became real the day Disney World closed. 
        • “To think that something that barely closes for hurricanes and stuff is shut down, was kind of crazy,” said the Walt Disney World cosmetologist who has worked in the Florida theme park for the last eight years.
        • “To their credit, Disney is being very responsive,” said Unite Here! Local 362 president Eric Clinton, who has worked closely with Disney throughout the entire closing, furlough, and reopening process. Disney said that it still shapes and updates its safety protocol based on feedback from cast members and guidance from public health and government authorities.
        • In negotiating conditions for the return to work, the union bargained for Disney to provide each cast member with a thermometer upon request to self-monitor and for a more lenient attendance policy that does not penalize employees for missing extra days due to illness.
        • Speaking to Business Insider from within a routine check-in at Animal Kingdom last week, Clinton said the union also addresses problems as they arise in real-time. For example, Disney World recently updated its initial guidelines and banned guests from eating while walking after feedback from cast members via the union.
        • “I feel safer going to work than I do going to Publix,” a local grocery store, said Cox, a sentiment that is shared by the other three cast members that spoke to Business Insider.
        • “It’s a total different atmosphere,” said Candyice Montville, a food and beverage worker at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. Montville described how she used to dance with and high-five guests regularly to make them feel welcome during pre-pandemic times. Now, she explained, such interactions are considered risky.
        • “That’s a challenge for us too and for them, because we’re all social people,” the Disney cast member of two years said.
        • Disney said it is working with cast members to rethink guest services by using techniques such as smiling with their eyes, waving from a distance, and encouraging selfies among guests.
        • Meanwhile, some of the theme parks’ 70,000 cast members have still not been called back to the park, including about 750 performers represented by the New York-based Actors’ Equity Association. According to Disney, the decision to call cast members back is based on a variety of factors, though the plan is to bring more back eventually. The company added that it is still paying health care premiums for eligible cast members who are furloughed.
        • Still, some fortunate enough to return to work have described feeling uncomfortable with their luck.
        • “I almost have a sense of survivor’s guilt every day when I go to work.” Cox, the entertainment technician, related. Gainey also described feeling a sense of survivor’s guilt, especially as unemployment benefits begin to run out.
        • “We’re very grateful to be at our jobs and to be back and it’s so nice to see everyone,” the cosmetologist said, describing how many of her guest-facing roles — like styling hair for a Disney-based wedding or in the currently-closed Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street — have been halted for now. “But it’s very, very different. And stressful.”
        • Luckily for Disney employees, keeping up a positive attitude isn’t anything they aren’t used to.
        • “We’re here to make magic, regardless of the situation,” Montville said. “Because people come to Disney to have fun.”
    • Disney auction includes vintage theme-park art, costumes, trash can from Polynesian resort

      • Another big Disney auction — filled with theme-park memorabilia, costumes, art, rare documents and more — is around the corner. This production, put on by Van Eaton Galleries, is themed predominantly to a recent Disneyland anniversary, but a good chunk of the 1,100 available items are rooted in Walt Disney World.
      • “Disneyland: The First 65 Years” will be held Aug. 15 and Aug. 16. The on-site auction, held in Sherman Oaks, California, will follow COVID-19 guidelines, but it also will be streamed live and bids can be made by phone or online.
      • On the Disneyland side of things, artifacts up for grabs include a sign from the Don DeFore’s Silver Banjo Barbeque, an opening-day restaurant, that the auction house estimates will bring in between $60,000 and $80,000.
      • Among the auction’s other notable items from the Anaheim park are a gold VIP ticket to Disneyland’s opening day in 1955, an original Space Mountain ride vehicle, a Haunted Mansion tombstone prop and a rifle from the Main Street Shooting Gallery.
      • Offered items from Walt Disney World theme parks are generally not anticipated to be as pricey, although a waste can from the Polynesian resort that reads “Trash please, mahalo” is expected to draw bids between $2,000 and $3,000. Other expected big-ticket items include an Epcot preview book created for President Jimmy Carter ($2,000-$4,000) and a poster for the “coming soon” Mickey’s PhilharMagic attraction ($3,000-$5,000).
      • The WDW items include many paper goods such as 1970s brochures, manuals and press packets. There’s a Hall of Presidents maintenance manual supplement that was issued after Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford animatronics were added to the Magic Kingdom attraction.
      • Other possibilities include costumes from the Walt Disney World Marching Band, Universe of Energy (with Exxon patch), Epcot’s Soarin’, Tower of Terror and the Great Movie Ride, formerly of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There are doormats from the Contemporary and the Grand Floridian hotels.
      • It’s not all historic. In the selection is a Lucite paperweight with the Alien Encounter logo and a gift to opening team members for Epcot’s Frozen Ever After ride, which debuted in 2016.

    • Disney Delays a Trio of Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Movies by a Year Each
    • https://collider.com/new-upcoming-star-wars-movies-release-dates-delayed/?fbclid=IwAR3FHnSmGm4tuIdbg0H9AQfk6y2XxT4vl7p2uHtEh1i1ARJG3O8joQW1ucg
    • https://bit.ly/2Xkyodz 
      • In a surprise to no one, Disney is delaying a trio of Star Wars movies that had previously been set for release as part of the Mouse House’s vast and intricate calendar.
        • The untitled Star Wars movie previously set for release on December 16, 2022 has been pushed to December 22, 2023.
        • The untitled Star Wars movie previously set for release on December 20, 2024 has been pushed to December 19, 2025.
        • And the untitled Star Wars movie previously set for release on December 18, 2026 has been delayed to December 17, 2027.
      • The delays are part of a larger shift being made to Disney’s overall release calendar due to the COVID-19 shutdown. It’s a game of dominos, and when you start shifting your big 2020 movies in 2021, everything else has to be shuffled back (including the Avatar sequels for the 17th time).
      • Disney and Lucasfilm had not previously disclosed what these specific Star Wars movies would be, and it’s possible they still don’t actually know. Former Disney CEO Bob Iger previously stated that the Star Wars films would be “taking a break” after the release of The Rise of Skywalker in December 2019, and after Lucasfilm took some heat for churning out Solo: A Star Wars Story so soon after The Last Jedi.
      • We do know that a number of Star Wars movies are in development, and are potential candidates to take these release dates. Most recently, Oscar-winning Thor: Ragnarok filmmaker Taika Waititi signed on to direct a new Star Wars movie that he’ll co-write with 1917 scribe Krysty Wilson-Cairns. And in February of 2020, Sleight filmmaker J.D. Dillard signed on to direct a Star Wars movie, making him the first Black director to ever helm a Star Wars film should his project come to fruition.
      • There’s also an unspecified movie that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige hatched and is producing, and The Last Jedi filmmaker Rian Johnson may or may not still be developing his trilogy of films that he signed on to make after The Last Jedi was released. Previously, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were writing a new series of Star Wars movies that would reportedly explore the origins of the Jedi, but they exited the project over creative differences.
  • STAR WARS DESIGNER REVEALS SNOKE’S SHOCKING, TRUE INSPIRATION
  • https://www.inverse.com/entertainment/star-wars-theory-snoke-identity-tarkin?fbclid=IwAR01hfC2NZvDvmzjXxltmbV0H6WM4WvRdMkEy83r7Z0nS3jB6iWx7sIvoAM
  • https://bit.ly/3feKif2 
    • In the Star Wars fandom, Snoke theories are as commonplace as discourse about who shot first. Popular guesses about the Supreme Leader’s true identity range from Palpatine himself to Mace Windu, but there’s never been much evidence to who he truly could be — even after Palpatine revealed Snoke was his creation in Rise of Skywalker.
    • But recently, a designer who worked on Snoke revealed who inspired his gaunt appearance, and it could confirm a dark horse Snoke theory.
    • In talking to the Force Material podcast (via ComicBook.com), Star Wars designer Ivan Manzella revealed the process behind designing characters like Rothgar Deng and Babu Frik. While there were some interesting reveals, like the fact the cuddly Babu was originally going to be insectoid, the most interesting reveal concerns Supreme Leader Snoke.
    • Manzella discussed his love for old fashioned horror movies like those from Hammer Studios, the British production company responsible for foundational monster horror movies like The Curse of Frankenstein and The Mummy, and how that influenced his design. He also revealed how the design of Snoke was inspired by Peter Cushing, both in reference to the actor’s Star Wars role and his connection to Hammer Studios.
    • “There were always Snoke theories that he was Grand Moff Tarkin, which I always found quite amusing. You can see there are elements there. The maquette, there’s elements of Peter Cushing, just the cheekbone and the profile and stuff, but he wasn’t meant to be Peter Cushing. He was my Hammer reference,” Manzella said.
    • So while it was first thought the design of Snoke fueled the Snoke/Tarkin theories, it seems like the opposite was true, the theories sparked by The Force Awakens shaped the character and inserted more Cushing-esque features into the detailed depiction of Snoke we get in The Last Jedi.
    • Manzella also addressed other Snoke theories, saying he was surprised at the theory Snoke was Palpatine’s former master Darth Plagueis because he had never heard of that character before. Sorry, Plagueis fans, it doesn’t look like that was the intention of Palpatine’s puppet leader.
    • Does this mean Snoke is actually a clone of Moff Tarkin? Well, not exactly. A design influence doesn’t equate to canonical proof of cloning. However, it’s certainly the most evidence pointing towards a certain character in relation to Snoke’s appearance, and considering that Star Wars film canon seems to be done with the Skywalker Saga, it may be possible we never learn Snoke’s true identity, at least not on the big screen. For now, this may be the answer the fans need to settle for, or at least begrudgingly accept.

    • ‘A Quiet Place 2,’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Delayed Until 2021
    • https://variety.com/2020/film/box-office/a-quiet-place-2-top-gun-maverick-release-date-delay-1234709716/amp/?__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR1Gdoxye5dgHuUEb5KdfXnTyq0-2T584Wl0bYxS4Yw92nZG6EPA2yLYQV4
    • https://bit.ly/39JHAgy 
      • Fans will have to wait until next year to see the sequels to “A Quiet Place” and “Top Gun.”
      • Both movies were part of a release date shakeup from Paramount on Thursday night. “A Quiet Place Part 2,” starring John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, will release in theaters on April 23, 2021, instead of Sept. 6, 2020. “Top Gun: Maverick,” a sequel to Tom Cruise’s 1986 classic, will take flight on July 2, 2021, nearly six months after its original date of Dec. 23, 2020.
      • “We truly believe that there is no movie-viewing experience like the one enjoyed in theatres,” said Paramount’s president of domestic distribution Chris Aronson, and president of international theatrical distribution Mark Viane. “We are committed to the theatrical experience and our exhibition partners, and want to stress that we are confident that, when the time comes, audiences everywhere will once again enjoy the singular joy of seeing Paramount films on the big screen.”
      • Along with Thursday’s announcement, the studio also set “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” a follow-up to this year’s box office smash, to open on April 8, 2022. Other changes to the calendar include a new “Jackass” film (from July 2021 to Sept. 3, 2021), “Under the Boardwalk” (July 22, 2022) and “The Tiger’s Apprentice” (from Feb. 11, 2022, to Feb. 10, 2023).
      • “A Quiet Place 2” was one of the first major movies pulled from release as cases of coronavirus began to spread in the United States. It was originally scheduled to open on March 20, but the studio moved it to Sept. 4 in the hopes that cinemas across North America would be able to resume operations before then. But uncertainty over when movie theaters — which have been shuttered for almost four months — will be able to reopen has only intensified as the pandemic continues to rapidly escalate across the country. Earlier Thursday, AMC Theatres, the country’s biggest theater chain, pushed back its reopening plans again and said it hopes to turn the lights back on before the end August.
      • It’s yet another sign that a nationwide return to moviegoing may be further delayed by a worsening public health situation. The film delays come days after Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller “Tenet” and hours after Disney’s “Mulan” were taken off release calendars. While those films had been long positioned to help revive moviegoing, sources say that Paramount did not want “A Quiet Place Part 2” to stay on Labor Day weekend and have the pressure of being the first new movie out of the gate during the pandemic.
      • The first “A Quiet Place” became a sleeper hit for Paramount when it debuted in 2018, earning $340 million globally. Krasinski returned to direct the sequel, while Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe will reprise their roles from the original. “A Quiet Place Part 2” again sees their family stay silent and evade deadly monsters in a dystopian world.
      • For “Top Gun: Maverick,” the move was partially due to scheduling conflicts for Cruise. The actor is expected to film the next two “Mission: Impossible” movies when Paramount would need him to promote “Top Gun: Maverick.” By postponing it until the following summer, it frees up Cruise to embark on one of his trademark global promotional campaigns to tout the movie and his death-defying stunts. And getting Cruise back in the cockpit 30 years later didn’t come cheap. “Top Gun: Maverick” cost over $150 million to make, so Paramount is counting on robust ticket sales to turn a profit.

0:03:50.959,0:03:55.360
panels i think so

0:03:52.400,0:03:56.640

0:03:55.360,0:03:58.640
right as well so

0:03:56.640,0:03:59.760
we’ll we’ll get the rundown of our

0:03:58.640,0:04:02.080
experience with that

0:03:59.760,0:04:02.959
and uh we’ll go from there ready to

0:04:02.080,0:04:05.840
start sure

0:04:02.959,0:04:05.840
all right here we go

0:04:07.350,0:04:11.760
[Applause]

0:04:09.040,0:04:13.280
go for disney detective so walt disney

0:04:11.760,0:04:15.840
world in florida began

0:04:13.280,0:04:17.199
its staggered reopening process earlier

0:04:15.840,0:04:20.239
this month

0:04:17.199,0:04:22.240
so they had two of the parks open um

0:04:20.239,0:04:23.680
you know one day and then a few days

0:04:22.240,0:04:26.160
later another

0:04:23.680,0:04:27.120
you know the other two parks you know

0:04:26.160,0:04:29.600
they have

0:04:27.120,0:04:30.400
various different procedures in place

0:04:29.600,0:04:33.360
like there’s no

0:04:30.400,0:04:35.360
park hopping available so if you pick a

0:04:33.360,0:04:36.240
park you go to that park for the whole

0:04:35.360,0:04:39.520
day

0:04:36.240,0:04:40.639
um there are you know the times uh that

0:04:39.520,0:04:43.040
the parks are open

0:04:40.639,0:04:44.400
they’re not open as late as they they

0:04:43.040,0:04:47.680
use used to be

0:04:44.400,0:04:50.560
they open a little bit later um as well

0:04:47.680,0:04:51.520
there’s no fast passes for any of the

0:04:50.560,0:04:53.919
rides so

0:04:51.520,0:04:54.720
you know a lot is different about this

0:04:53.919,0:04:57.120
um

0:04:54.720,0:04:59.520
and of course you know unfortunately if

0:04:57.120,0:05:02.960
you’re watching the news or seeing

0:04:59.520,0:05:06.000
florida has you know more people

0:05:02.960,0:05:06.880
testing positive now um and confirmed

0:05:06.000,0:05:10.160
cases than

0:05:06.880,0:05:12.960
new york they’ve they’ve surpassed it

0:05:10.160,0:05:14.320
so as more and more people are becoming

0:05:12.960,0:05:16.720
infected more and more people

0:05:14.320,0:05:18.800
unfortunately are dying

0:05:16.720,0:05:20.479
it seems like a very weird time for

0:05:18.800,0:05:23.759
people to be going

0:05:20.479,0:05:27.120
um but they’re open and

0:05:23.759,0:05:28.800
you know that they are are reporting

0:05:27.120,0:05:30.400
you know that they’ve been very

0:05:28.800,0:05:34.080
successful so far

0:05:30.400,0:05:37.120
in creating a safe environment

0:05:34.080,0:05:39.120
for people that are making uh their way

0:05:37.120,0:05:42.320
to the happiest place on earth

0:05:39.120,0:05:43.600
um you know uh so the this article

0:05:42.320,0:05:46.160
actually talked with a couple of

0:05:43.600,0:05:47.919
different cast members um and what their

0:05:46.160,0:05:49.919
feelings were and they said you know

0:05:47.919,0:05:50.960
it’s something you know the one talked

0:05:49.919,0:05:52.960
about how

0:05:50.960,0:05:54.479
you know we barely ever close when

0:05:52.960,0:05:57.520
there’s a hurricane

0:05:54.479,0:06:00.240
or a storm and here

0:05:57.520,0:06:00.800
you know we get shut down for this

0:06:00.240,0:06:03.039
longer

0:06:00.800,0:06:04.720
period of time than than we’ve ever been

0:06:03.039,0:06:07.840
been shut down before

0:06:04.720,0:06:09.120
um you know they they say uh you know

0:06:07.840,0:06:12.720
the one union

0:06:09.120,0:06:15.360
um unite here local 362 said that they

0:06:12.720,0:06:16.080
you know been working very closely you

0:06:15.360,0:06:19.520
know

0:06:16.080,0:06:22.720
disney and the union making sure

0:06:19.520,0:06:25.199
employees cast members concerns are

0:06:22.720,0:06:26.560
are heard you know one of the things

0:06:25.199,0:06:29.280
they were talking about

0:06:26.560,0:06:30.160
was cast members were asked if they

0:06:29.280,0:06:32.560
could actually

0:06:30.160,0:06:34.720
get their own thermometer so that they

0:06:32.560,0:06:37.280
could do their own self-monitoring

0:06:34.720,0:06:38.400
of their temperature and disney was like

0:06:37.280,0:06:40.479
yeah here you go

0:06:38.400,0:06:42.479
you know they gave all the cast members

0:06:40.479,0:06:43.840
working their own thermometer so that

0:06:42.479,0:06:45.440
they could check

0:06:43.840,0:06:48.080
one of the other things was that now

0:06:45.440,0:06:51.360
they’re being a lot more lenient

0:06:48.080,0:06:53.120
on the attendance policy where

0:06:51.360,0:06:55.520
usually people would be penalized for

0:06:53.120,0:06:56.319
missing you know extra days due to

0:06:55.520,0:06:59.840
illness

0:06:56.319,0:07:01.840
now you know if somebody has any sort of

0:06:59.840,0:07:04.240
symptom of anything

0:07:01.840,0:07:05.599
you know they’re not being penalized for

0:07:04.240,0:07:07.520
it uh which i think

0:07:05.599,0:07:10.319
you kind of have to in in this day and

0:07:07.520,0:07:12.400
age um you know one of the other

0:07:10.319,0:07:14.800
uh cast members actually said she felt

0:07:12.400,0:07:15.199
safer going to work at disney than she

0:07:14.800,0:07:18.000
did

0:07:15.199,0:07:18.880
to the local grocery store you know she

0:07:18.000,0:07:22.800
knows that

0:07:18.880,0:07:26.160
things are are being taken care of

0:07:22.800,0:07:29.120
much more frequently and much more

0:07:26.160,0:07:31.199
thorough there are a couple of different

0:07:29.120,0:07:33.520
youtubers that i i follow

0:07:31.199,0:07:34.960
and they were there uh the last couple

0:07:33.520,0:07:38.240
of weeks and they showed

0:07:34.960,0:07:40.639
um the dinosaur ride how they’ve

0:07:38.240,0:07:41.360
changed it so that there’s plexiglass so

0:07:40.639,0:07:42.720
somebody

0:07:41.360,0:07:45.199
you know so you get a group of people

0:07:42.720,0:07:47.199
that’s in the front row nobody sits

0:07:45.199,0:07:48.240
in the middle row and then they put

0:07:47.199,0:07:50.160
people in

0:07:48.240,0:07:51.840
the back depending on how big your party

0:07:50.160,0:07:55.120
is and there’s plexiglass

0:07:51.840,0:07:57.199
between all the different rows and then

0:07:55.120,0:07:59.520
once all the ride vehicles have gone

0:07:57.199,0:08:02.000
through they spray them all down

0:07:59.520,0:08:03.680
and all the ride vehicles go through

0:08:02.000,0:08:05.759
kind of to air out

0:08:03.680,0:08:08.639
the cleaning process so it takes a

0:08:05.759,0:08:10.319
little bit longer to get on the ride

0:08:08.639,0:08:12.160
but they’re allowing everything to get

0:08:10.319,0:08:13.039
clean so you’re seeing that with a lot

0:08:12.160,0:08:15.280
of

0:08:13.039,0:08:16.400
um the various different rides they’ll

0:08:15.280,0:08:18.639
let you know

0:08:16.400,0:08:19.680
a group go through then they’re wiping

0:08:18.639,0:08:22.960
everything down

0:08:19.680,0:08:24.879
and letting another group you know go

0:08:22.960,0:08:26.000
go through one of the other things that

0:08:24.879,0:08:28.720
one of the other cast members

0:08:26.000,0:08:29.440
talked about was you know now you you

0:08:28.720,0:08:31.280
can’t

0:08:29.440,0:08:32.640
have somebody take a photo for you you

0:08:31.280,0:08:34.320
can’t give someone your

0:08:32.640,0:08:36.560
your camera or your phone and say hey

0:08:34.320,0:08:37.440
can you take a picture so they’re trying

0:08:36.560,0:08:40.320
to

0:08:37.440,0:08:42.399
do creative things you know with that

0:08:40.320,0:08:44.000
like oh we’ll take a selfie

0:08:42.399,0:08:45.519
you know so they’re allowing selfie

0:08:44.000,0:08:46.959
sticks well no they’re not allowing

0:08:45.519,0:08:49.200
selfie sticks they’re just

0:08:46.959,0:08:50.000
you know hey let’s take a selfie instead

0:08:49.200,0:08:53.600
of

0:08:50.000,0:08:55.839
you know doing that or um

0:08:53.600,0:08:57.680
you know they were saying because even

0:08:55.839,0:08:59.360
the the cast members that are wearing

0:08:57.680,0:09:00.320
face shields they still have to wear a

0:08:59.360,0:09:03.519
mask so you can’t

0:09:00.320,0:09:07.120
see um somebody’s smile

0:09:03.519,0:09:08.880
so what they start doing is like waving

0:09:07.120,0:09:10.320
you know where we do like our little

0:09:08.880,0:09:12.480
baby yoda you know

0:09:10.320,0:09:14.000
that’s that’s when we’re smiling um you

0:09:12.480,0:09:14.640
know they’re trying to come up with all

0:09:14.000,0:09:17.760
these

0:09:14.640,0:09:20.800
creative ways to to show

0:09:17.760,0:09:21.200
emotion while you know wearing the mask

0:09:20.800,0:09:24.640
and

0:09:21.200,0:09:26.080
you know keeping everybody safe so i i

0:09:24.640,0:09:26.480
have a couple of friends who have been

0:09:26.080,0:09:29.360
there

0:09:26.480,0:09:30.000
who are there now and they say it’s you

0:09:29.360,0:09:33.760
know

0:09:30.000,0:09:36.160
it’s definitely a different vibe

0:09:33.760,0:09:36.959
you know we’ve obviously talked and we

0:09:36.160,0:09:39.600
said

0:09:36.959,0:09:41.120
we’re not planning on going you know

0:09:39.600,0:09:43.519
anytime soon just

0:09:41.120,0:09:46.080
you know for the the safety reason of it

0:09:43.519,0:09:48.480
but if other people feel

0:09:46.080,0:09:49.519
that you know well and that’s the thing

0:09:48.480,0:09:53.120
like right now

0:09:49.519,0:09:54.800
florida is basically the epicenter

0:09:53.120,0:09:56.160
yeah of this outbreak at this point in

0:09:54.800,0:09:56.880
time in the country they’re worse than

0:09:56.160,0:09:59.600
new york

0:09:56.880,0:10:00.320
you know a lot of areas a lot of

0:09:59.600,0:10:01.839
businesses

0:10:00.320,0:10:03.360
the beaches and stuff like that they’re

0:10:01.839,0:10:04.079
talking about the possibility of having

0:10:03.360,0:10:06.480
to shut down

0:10:04.079,0:10:07.360
again right has there been any talk from

0:10:06.480,0:10:09.519
disney about

0:10:07.360,0:10:11.120
shutting operations no disney hasn’t

0:10:09.519,0:10:13.600
hasn’t said anything and

0:10:11.120,0:10:14.800
and you know and that’s kind of why

0:10:13.600,0:10:17.200
california

0:10:14.800,0:10:18.079
didn’t even open because other theme

0:10:17.200,0:10:20.640
parks in

0:10:18.079,0:10:22.079
california have been starting to to open

0:10:20.640,0:10:24.240
up but disney

0:10:22.079,0:10:26.560
land still hasn’t because i think

0:10:24.240,0:10:28.079
they’re kind of holding back and and

0:10:26.560,0:10:29.600
waiting

0:10:28.079,0:10:32.160
you know to see the only thing that’s

0:10:29.600,0:10:33.600
open there is is disney springs is the

0:10:32.160,0:10:36.959
shopping area

0:10:33.600,0:10:39.040
so you know this is scary stuff i mean

0:10:36.959,0:10:40.000
i was telling you uh earlier in the week

0:10:39.040,0:10:42.800
we had a scare

0:10:40.000,0:10:43.440
at my office we had two people test

0:10:42.800,0:10:45.839
positive

0:10:43.440,0:10:47.920
right after they had gone to an event

0:10:45.839,0:10:50.160
over the weekend

0:10:47.920,0:10:51.279
and you know my company stepped up

0:10:50.160,0:10:53.680
they’ve got

0:10:51.279,0:10:55.760
a cleaning crew coming in right uh once

0:10:53.680,0:10:58.640
or twice a week at this point in time to

0:10:55.760,0:11:00.320
to basically wipe everything down the

0:10:58.640,0:11:01.920
janitorial staff

0:11:00.320,0:11:03.680
has stepped up their efforts to keep

0:11:01.920,0:11:04.880
things clean

0:11:03.680,0:11:07.839
you know a lot of people are scared

0:11:04.880,0:11:09.440
about this stuff and uh

0:11:07.839,0:11:11.839
given the number of deaths that we have

0:11:09.440,0:11:13.680
right now the number of infections

0:11:11.839,0:11:15.680
there’s good reason to be scared

0:11:13.680,0:11:16.800
absolutely you know the determination we

0:11:15.680,0:11:19.120
just made

0:11:16.800,0:11:20.800
for our daughter you know she’s not

0:11:19.120,0:11:21.440
going back physically to school she’s

0:11:20.800,0:11:23.360
going to be

0:11:21.440,0:11:24.959
schooling remotely now yeah and that’s

0:11:23.360,0:11:27.760
something fortunately

0:11:24.959,0:11:29.200
that our state our governor you know

0:11:27.760,0:11:32.160
kudos to him

0:11:29.200,0:11:33.519
um said you know that has to be an

0:11:32.160,0:11:36.240
option for the school year

0:11:33.519,0:11:38.160
you know he doesn’t want to you know if

0:11:36.240,0:11:40.240
you feel comfortable sending

0:11:38.160,0:11:42.079
your kid to school do it and if you

0:11:40.240,0:11:44.959
don’t then there has to be the option

0:11:42.079,0:11:46.079
you know for for remote learning and and

0:11:44.959,0:11:47.920
they’re doing it in a much more

0:11:46.079,0:11:49.680
structured way that they had before

0:11:47.920,0:11:51.200
they seem much more organized now that

0:11:49.680,0:11:51.519
they’ve taken the time right well and i

0:11:51.200,0:11:54.480
think

0:11:51.519,0:11:55.600
they you know the the last time they had

0:11:54.480,0:11:58.000
a weekend to do it

0:11:55.600,0:11:59.040
you know school they had school on

0:11:58.000,0:12:02.720
thursday

0:11:59.040,0:12:03.040
friday was a normal day off and they had

0:12:02.720,0:12:04.639
sent

0:12:03.040,0:12:06.880
out a memo saying oh we’re going to

0:12:04.639,0:12:08.959
clean the school over the weekend

0:12:06.880,0:12:10.320
and then by sunday night it was like

0:12:08.959,0:12:12.240
nope you’re not back

0:12:10.320,0:12:13.600
yeah you know and and literally monday

0:12:12.240,0:12:15.200
morning it was

0:12:13.600,0:12:17.760
okay we got to do remote learning you

0:12:15.200,0:12:19.760
know teachers didn’t even have their

0:12:17.760,0:12:21.200
you know their books you know the

0:12:19.760,0:12:22.800
students didn’t even have all their

0:12:21.200,0:12:25.760
books you know we had to

0:12:22.800,0:12:26.639
plan a separate time to go back to her

0:12:25.760,0:12:29.120
school

0:12:26.639,0:12:29.920
you know to to pick up things where now

0:12:29.120,0:12:32.639
okay

0:12:29.920,0:12:34.000
fortunately for uh new jersey we don’t

0:12:32.639,0:12:36.240
start until

0:12:34.000,0:12:37.600
you know after labor day so we still

0:12:36.240,0:12:39.680
have a month

0:12:37.600,0:12:40.639
you know before school even starts i

0:12:39.680,0:12:43.120
think it’s kind of

0:12:40.639,0:12:44.560
funny that you have employees of disney

0:12:43.120,0:12:47.040
who feel

0:12:44.560,0:12:48.480
more comfortable going to work at disney

0:12:47.040,0:12:49.040
because of the steps they’re taking

0:12:48.480,0:12:51.680
right

0:12:49.040,0:12:52.079
than going shopping going to the grocery

0:12:51.680,0:12:53.760
yeah

0:12:52.079,0:12:56.160
we don’t feel comfortable sending our

0:12:53.760,0:12:57.600
our child into school at this point in

0:12:56.160,0:12:59.440
time

0:12:57.600,0:13:01.120
i don’t know i think i might feel more

0:12:59.440,0:13:04.160
comfortable going if we did

0:13:01.120,0:13:06.560
if we lived a lot closer

0:13:04.160,0:13:07.680
you know if we lived within an hour’s

0:13:06.560,0:13:09.920
driveway basically

0:13:07.680,0:13:11.440
we could get in the car we wouldn’t have

0:13:09.920,0:13:14.240
to make a stop

0:13:11.440,0:13:14.720
to use a restroom overnight 16 hours

0:13:14.240,0:13:17.760
away

0:13:14.720,0:13:19.680
driving right obviously we wouldn’t fly

0:13:17.760,0:13:21.360
but 16 hours driving you’re looking at

0:13:19.680,0:13:22.959
several stops along the way

0:13:21.360,0:13:24.480
right heading down there even right and

0:13:22.959,0:13:26.399
overnight typically right

0:13:24.480,0:13:28.160
and that’s the thing is if we could you

0:13:26.399,0:13:30.480
know basically stay in a bubble

0:13:28.160,0:13:32.240
and and you know in our own little pod

0:13:30.480,0:13:34.240
you know we have our pod here

0:13:32.240,0:13:35.920
and if we you know could get down to

0:13:34.240,0:13:38.160
disney

0:13:35.920,0:13:39.760
i i would feel and and you know what and

0:13:38.160,0:13:42.720
that’s always been

0:13:39.760,0:13:44.880
the way it is if there’s been anything

0:13:42.720,0:13:48.079
going on in the world

0:13:44.880,0:13:50.160
i always feel safest at disney world

0:13:48.079,0:13:51.519
right you know when back in the day

0:13:50.160,0:13:53.920
before we were married

0:13:51.519,0:13:55.440
you know when i was single and i you

0:13:53.920,0:13:57.920
know vacationed

0:13:55.440,0:13:59.680
by myself a couple of times the only

0:13:57.920,0:14:03.839
place that i actually felt

0:13:59.680,0:14:05.920
safe going by myself

0:14:03.839,0:14:08.160
was disney you know when when it was

0:14:05.920,0:14:09.680
like oh i have this vacation time

0:14:08.160,0:14:11.279
i want to go do something where do i

0:14:09.680,0:14:12.160
feel like going because nobody else

0:14:11.279,0:14:14.480
could go

0:14:12.160,0:14:15.279
i went to you know i went to disney even

0:14:14.480,0:14:18.320
after

0:14:15.279,0:14:21.600
9 11 i had a trip planned

0:14:18.320,0:14:24.399
for the end of october and i still went

0:14:21.600,0:14:24.800
and again it was a very somber time so

0:14:24.399,0:14:27.120
it’s

0:14:24.800,0:14:29.120
kind of you know almost like how it is

0:14:27.120,0:14:32.399
now you don’t have as many people

0:14:29.120,0:14:36.240
um but that’s where i felt you know the

0:14:32.399,0:14:38.000
the safest you know so if

0:14:36.240,0:14:40.240
we were close enough where we could stay

0:14:38.000,0:14:42.720
in our bubble and get there and

0:14:40.240,0:14:43.600
you know not have to leave you know we

0:14:42.720,0:14:45.839
should have got that

0:14:43.600,0:14:47.279
that rv you know if we had the rv we

0:14:45.839,0:14:48.000
could have stayed i know we kept talking

0:14:47.279,0:14:50.079
about it

0:14:48.000,0:14:51.760
well if we got an rv placed right up the

0:14:50.079,0:14:52.959
road i’m sure i’m sure they’re running

0:14:51.760,0:14:55.760
sales or something

0:14:52.959,0:14:56.079
that might be the truth and that you

0:14:55.760,0:14:58.480
know

0:14:56.079,0:14:59.680
that i could i could totally see you

0:14:58.480,0:15:02.720
know to

0:14:59.680,0:15:04.880
to to do something like that but again

0:15:02.720,0:15:06.480
i think it’s still too early you know

0:15:04.880,0:15:09.839
and plus the fact that

0:15:06.480,0:15:11.600
florida being a hotbed and us being in

0:15:09.839,0:15:14.240
new jersey

0:15:11.600,0:15:15.600
you know we we can’t even go into

0:15:14.240,0:15:18.639
delaware now without

0:15:15.600,0:15:20.959
having to quarantine for 14 days um

0:15:18.639,0:15:22.720
you know so okay so our vacation was you

0:15:20.959,0:15:23.199
know a week long well now when i come

0:15:22.720,0:15:25.360
home

0:15:23.199,0:15:26.399
i have to quarantine you know self

0:15:25.360,0:15:27.920
quarantine for another

0:15:26.399,0:15:29.920
you know well that’s a two weeks now my

0:15:27.920,0:15:30.399
company has a facility down in maryland

0:15:29.920,0:15:32.399
that i

0:15:30.399,0:15:34.240
right typically go to once a month

0:15:32.399,0:15:37.360
because they have staff down there

0:15:34.240,0:15:39.920
and because of the the

0:15:37.360,0:15:40.480
various regulations that we have right

0:15:39.920,0:15:43.120
now

0:15:40.480,0:15:43.759
i can’t even do that right of these

0:15:43.120,0:15:47.440
quarantine

0:15:43.759,0:15:49.120
right right so anyway

0:15:47.440,0:15:51.040
you know that’s how it is we haven’t had

0:15:49.120,0:15:53.920
any reports of anybody getting

0:15:51.040,0:15:54.399
sick at disney yeah fortunately nothing

0:15:53.920,0:15:56.720
you know

0:15:54.399,0:15:58.720
i think it’s still been a little a

0:15:56.720,0:15:59.279
little early you know a lot of the you

0:15:58.720,0:16:01.519
know and

0:15:59.279,0:16:03.040
obviously not all of the cast members

0:16:01.519,0:16:05.600
are back yet there’s

0:16:03.040,0:16:07.279
you know still a lot who haven’t been

0:16:05.600,0:16:08.880
called back yet because obviously

0:16:07.279,0:16:11.519
they’re not at a hundred percent

0:16:08.880,0:16:12.160
capacity um you know one of the things

0:16:11.519,0:16:14.720
that

0:16:12.160,0:16:16.320
you know the one cast member uh says is

0:16:14.720,0:16:18.399
that you know she feels very

0:16:16.320,0:16:20.160
lucky but at the same time you know

0:16:18.399,0:16:22.320
still kind of stressed out

0:16:20.160,0:16:23.199
by the whole thing and that she almost

0:16:22.320,0:16:26.720
has

0:16:23.199,0:16:30.480
um um uh what was it um

0:16:26.720,0:16:33.040
you know she has a um survivor’s guilt

0:16:30.480,0:16:33.839
yeah bye because she’s able to come back

0:16:33.040,0:16:36.880
and she knows

0:16:33.839,0:16:37.600
not everybody you know can so she’s

0:16:36.880,0:16:41.040
thankful

0:16:37.600,0:16:44.160
but yet you know feeling you know guilty

0:16:41.040,0:16:45.680
you know as well but she’s like you know

0:16:44.160,0:16:47.360
you gotta go and you gotta make the

0:16:45.680,0:16:50.399
guests happy and you know

0:16:47.360,0:16:52.639
seeing them happy kind of helps and and

0:16:50.399,0:16:53.440
you know fortunately i’ve heard a couple

0:16:52.639,0:16:56.480
of stories

0:16:53.440,0:16:59.839
of guests who are being jerks

0:16:56.480,0:17:03.440
down there and not following

0:16:59.839,0:17:05.360
procedures but all in all most people

0:17:03.440,0:17:07.679
um you know are following the rules

0:17:05.360,0:17:09.919
which is which is good to

0:17:07.679,0:17:11.439
hear so again i think it’s still too

0:17:09.919,0:17:14.959
early to hear

0:17:11.439,0:17:16.799
um you know if anybody

0:17:14.959,0:17:19.439
you know is getting infected and that’s

0:17:16.799,0:17:20.240
the thing is what happens once the first

0:17:19.439,0:17:23.439
case

0:17:20.240,0:17:25.120
you know happens yeah

0:17:23.439,0:17:26.559

in this i don’t know it might be kind of

0:21:32.080,0:21:36.000
cool just to

0:21:33.280,0:21:38.000
to watch but there have been other

0:21:36.000,0:21:38.559
auctions before where i’ve gotten a hold

0:21:38.000,0:21:41.840
of like

0:21:38.559,0:21:43.760
the uh the auction book

0:21:41.840,0:21:45.520
you know just to kind of see but i’ve

0:21:43.760,0:21:48.880
never actually

0:21:45.520,0:21:51.760
participated or or watched or saw

0:21:48.880,0:21:52.080
you know how much some of this you know

0:21:51.760,0:21:54.400
so

0:21:52.080,0:21:55.919
what was those four what was the impetus

0:21:54.400,0:21:57.520
for this are they raising money for

0:21:55.919,0:22:01.520
something

0:21:57.520,0:22:03.600
tight on cash hey we’re doing an auction

0:22:01.520,0:22:05.760
it was just kind of like hey if you’re

0:22:03.600,0:22:07.760
into disney stuff and you want

0:22:05.760,0:22:09.520
some one-of-a-kind stuff that you

0:22:07.760,0:22:12.320
probably you know

0:22:09.520,0:22:13.600
never saw before but what was kind of

0:22:12.320,0:22:16.400
funny

0:22:13.600,0:22:17.039
so they have the the 1970s brochures and

0:22:16.400,0:22:20.480
stuff

0:22:17.039,0:22:21.520
so as you know i was kind of cleaning

0:22:20.480,0:22:23.840
this weekend

0:22:21.520,0:22:26.240
and went through a box of stuff and i

0:22:23.840,0:22:29.520
and every time we would go to disney

0:22:26.240,0:22:32.080
i always get i always save a copy of the

0:22:29.520,0:22:33.840
brochures just to hold on to

0:22:32.080,0:22:35.840
you know because i’m always thinking i’m

0:22:33.840,0:22:39.120
going to scrapbook or something

0:22:35.840,0:22:42.400
and i never do and wouldn’t you know

0:22:39.120,0:22:44.880
i found a whole bunch of brochures

0:22:42.400,0:22:46.559
from whatever various trip it was you

0:22:44.880,0:22:48.159
figure we’ve been in the house 10 years

0:22:46.559,0:22:51.520
now so it’s been

0:22:48.159,0:22:54.080
over 10 years and there was even dvc

0:22:51.520,0:22:56.080
information from before we were even

0:22:54.080,0:22:58.559
signed up so we had gotten a hold of oh

0:22:56.080,0:23:00.640
sure we’ll look at dvc information so

0:22:58.559,0:23:02.320
i’m not the only one that hoards it so

0:23:00.640,0:23:05.200
maybe i can auction off some of

0:23:02.320,0:23:06.400
our stuff there you go you know to plan

0:23:05.200,0:23:09.120
typically do

0:23:06.400,0:23:09.600
uh auctions annually semi-annually

0:23:09.120,0:23:11.520
they’re

0:23:09.600,0:23:14.159
they’re usually kind of few and far

0:23:11.520,0:23:17.200
between we kind of hear about them

0:23:14.159,0:23:20.400
um and i don’t know if it’s ever

0:23:17.200,0:23:22.880
if it’s you know sanctioned by disney

0:23:20.400,0:23:24.640

0:23:33.200,0:23:37.280

go for tails from the edge of the galaxy

0:25:36.400,0:25:43.200
so unfortunately in a surprise to

0:25:39.840,0:25:43.840
basically no one disney is delaying a

0:25:43.200,0:25:46.080
trio

0:25:43.840,0:25:47.679
of star wars movies that had previously

0:25:46.080,0:25:51.120
been set to release

0:25:47.679,0:25:54.240
as part of disney’s vast

0:25:51.120,0:25:56.720
you know an intricate calendar of events

0:25:54.240,0:25:57.600
so the untitled star wars movie that was

0:25:56.720,0:26:00.799
set to release

0:25:57.600,0:26:03.919
in december of 2022

0:26:00.799,0:26:05.760
has now been pushed to 2023.

0:26:03.919,0:26:08.320
the unnamed star wars movie that was

0:26:05.760,0:26:13.200
supposed to be for december

0:26:08.320,0:26:14.799
uh 2024 is now december 2025.

0:26:13.200,0:26:16.320
and the movie that was going to be two

0:26:14.799,0:26:19.440
years after that

0:26:16.320,0:26:23.279
december 2026 is now

0:26:19.440,0:26:25.279
december 2027. so the delays are

0:26:23.279,0:26:28.640
obviously part of a bigger shift

0:26:25.279,0:26:31.360
uh that basically you know had

0:26:28.640,0:26:32.559
disney had to overhaul you know their

0:26:31.360,0:26:35.039
release calendar for

0:26:32.559,0:26:37.520
basically everything due to you know all

0:26:35.039,0:26:39.760
the studios obviously being shut down

0:26:37.520,0:26:41.200
um and it’s a game of dominoes so when

0:26:39.760,0:26:44.320
you start shifting

0:26:41.200,0:26:47.600
you know the 2020 movies into 2021

0:26:44.320,0:26:50.159
everything just kind of keeps moving um

0:26:47.600,0:26:52.240
you know and obviously that affects not

0:26:50.159,0:26:53.679
only star wars but we

0:26:52.240,0:26:55.840
you know we know that they were looking

0:26:53.679,0:26:59.120
at doing the avatar sequels

0:26:55.840,0:27:01.440
so now that’s been pushed back um

0:26:59.120,0:27:03.440
you know and you know bob iger had

0:27:01.440,0:27:05.520
previously said that you know star wars

0:27:03.440,0:27:09.039
movies were going to be taking a break

0:27:05.520,0:27:12.000
after rising skywalker but

0:27:09.039,0:27:13.679
you know we thought it wasn’t going to

0:27:12.000,0:27:16.320
be as long of a break

0:27:13.679,0:27:17.039
as you know unfortunately it’s going to

0:27:16.320,0:27:20.080
be

0:27:17.039,0:27:22.159
um and um you know the

0:27:20.080,0:27:24.159
the one that everybody is basically

0:27:22.159,0:27:25.600
waiting on is i’m not even going to say

0:27:24.159,0:27:28.799
his name

0:27:25.600,0:27:31.120
you can say it for me taika

0:27:28.799,0:27:32.240
oh taikawati oh see look and i said it

0:27:31.120,0:27:35.120
right um

0:27:32.240,0:27:35.440
there was actually a separate article uh

0:27:35.120,0:27:38.000
that

0:27:35.440,0:27:39.440
that came up about you know like oh

0:27:38.000,0:27:41.520
what’s going on with this movie

0:27:39.440,0:27:42.559
and basically he said we’re still

0:27:41.520,0:27:45.360
writing it

0:27:42.559,0:27:46.720
you know so it’s one of these various

0:27:45.360,0:27:49.039
ones that’s now

0:27:46.720,0:27:52.080
you know in the delay process but

0:27:49.039,0:27:55.120
they’re still writing it so

0:27:52.080,0:27:55.600
you know is it really gonna hurt that

0:27:55.120,0:27:57.760
much

0:27:55.600,0:27:58.960
you know maybe then it’ll make things a

0:27:57.760,0:28:02.320
little a little better

0:27:58.960,0:28:05.360
because they’re taking more time uh

0:28:02.320,0:28:09.360
to to you know to put it all together

0:28:05.360,0:28:11.919
so you know kind of you know

0:28:09.360,0:28:12.799
a little disheartening but

0:28:11.919,0:28:15.120
understandable

0:28:12.799,0:28:16.080
in you know the the day and age that

0:28:15.120,0:28:18.159
we’re we’re in right

0:28:16.080,0:28:19.600
now so well and i think you kind of hit

0:28:18.159,0:28:21.679
the nail on the head that

0:28:19.600,0:28:23.039
this doesn’t surprise anyone we kind of

0:28:21.679,0:28:23.760
all knew that we were gonna get these

0:28:23.039,0:28:27.039
delays

0:28:23.760,0:28:29.520
yeah what was kind of disappointing was

0:28:27.039,0:28:30.960
they didn’t give us any like little

0:28:29.520,0:28:33.200
morsels any little hints

0:28:30.960,0:28:34.000
any other information like it like give

0:28:33.200,0:28:37.279
us something to

0:28:34.000,0:28:38.640
to to you know tied us over give us a

0:28:37.279,0:28:40.000
tease exactly yeah

0:28:38.640,0:28:41.600
you know give us that little bit of

0:28:40.000,0:28:42.480
information to hold us over and knowing

0:28:41.600,0:28:43.919
that it’s going to be a little bit

0:28:42.480,0:28:45.360
longer right and that’s the thing is

0:28:43.919,0:28:48.000
like the article basically said

0:28:45.360,0:28:49.600
the unknown you know the unnamed star

0:28:48.000,0:28:52.399
wars film this the

0:28:49.600,0:28:54.080
like you don’t even have a little like

0:28:52.399,0:28:54.720
just a code name even if the code name

0:28:54.080,0:28:58.159
doesn’t mean

0:28:54.720,0:28:58.720
anything call it something um and that’s

0:28:58.159,0:29:00.240
why

0:28:58.720,0:29:01.840
like i said when i was looking at

0:29:00.240,0:29:03.279
different articles there were a lot of

0:29:01.840,0:29:04.320
different star wars stories that were

0:29:03.279,0:29:06.080
coming up um

0:29:04.320,0:29:07.520
there were actually two different

0:29:06.080,0:29:10.000
articles that

0:29:07.520,0:29:11.120
i i didn’t throw in here because you

0:29:10.000,0:29:13.679
know i wasn’t sure how the

0:29:11.120,0:29:15.200
the how long the show was going to be

0:29:13.679,0:29:16.399
but it was talking about the whole darth

0:29:15.200,0:29:18.880
maul

0:29:16.399,0:29:21.039
aspect where they’re thinking about you

0:29:18.880,0:29:22.399
know a little backstory for darth maul

0:29:21.039,0:29:24.240
and you know and there were a couple of

0:29:22.399,0:29:25.360
different articles that came up you know

0:29:24.240,0:29:28.320
for that so there’s

0:29:25.360,0:29:29.039
has been a lot of star wars going going

0:29:28.320,0:29:32.559
on

0:29:29.039,0:29:34.720
um just you know not a whole lot of

0:29:32.559,0:29:37.440
information now everything’s

0:29:34.720,0:29:38.399
very you know right speculatory i have

0:29:37.440,0:29:40.640
to assume

0:29:38.399,0:29:41.760
that a good chunk of the animated stuff

0:29:40.640,0:29:43.760
that they’re working on now

0:29:41.760,0:29:45.039
can be worked on under the current

0:29:43.760,0:29:46.640
conditions right

0:29:45.039,0:29:48.480
the stuff that you have to go out and

0:29:46.640,0:29:50.880
you have to put a crew together

0:29:48.480,0:29:51.679
right that’s the stuff live action stuff

0:29:50.880,0:29:53.120
is where you’re gonna run

0:29:51.679,0:29:55.600
right and i think that’s where like the

0:29:53.120,0:29:56.480
bad ma the the bad batch is gonna be

0:29:55.600,0:29:59.520
able to

0:29:56.480,0:30:02.480
you know come out sooner um obviously we

0:29:59.520,0:30:03.440
know that they filmed certain things

0:30:02.480,0:30:05.840
because

0:30:03.440,0:30:06.640
you know we we had a story you know a

0:30:05.840,0:30:08.399
couple weeks

0:30:06.640,0:30:10.159
maybe even a couple of months back where

0:30:08.399,0:30:12.880
they talked about okay well

0:30:10.159,0:30:14.240
this was supposed to air next year we’re

0:30:12.880,0:30:16.399
gonna air it this year but

0:30:14.240,0:30:17.840
we’re only gonna be able to do four

0:30:16.399,0:30:19.600
episodes because

0:30:17.840,0:30:20.960
that’s all we have ready but at least we

0:30:19.600,0:30:24.080
can give it to you now

0:30:20.960,0:30:26.240
versus waiting so

0:30:24.080,0:30:27.520
so anyway maybe a little trickle maybe

0:30:26.240,0:30:28.960
they’ll hear the

0:30:27.520,0:30:30.559
the cries of the fans and they’ll

0:30:28.960,0:30:34.960
trickle out some of that information

0:30:30.559,0:30:37.600
to us absolutely yeah so tell us about

0:30:34.960,0:30:39.760
the true inspiration for so this was

0:30:37.600,0:30:40.559
kind of interesting so in the star wars

0:30:39.760,0:30:43.760
fandom

0:30:40.559,0:30:47.120
you know snoke’s theories are you know

0:30:43.760,0:30:47.520
as you know commonplace as you know who

0:30:47.120,0:30:51.840
shot

0:30:47.520,0:30:51.840
first so obviously

0:30:54.720,0:31:02.240
anyway um so obviously you know a lot of

0:30:58.799,0:31:05.200
talk was you know who who is he you know

0:31:02.240,0:31:07.600
and obviously in rise of skywalker

0:31:05.200,0:31:10.880
palpatine revealed that snoke was

0:31:07.600,0:31:13.200
his creation you know but then uh

0:31:10.880,0:31:15.200
recently the designer who actually

0:31:13.200,0:31:17.760
worked on the character revealed

0:31:15.200,0:31:18.880
who inspired his you know gaunt

0:31:17.760,0:31:21.840
appearance

0:31:18.880,0:31:22.559
and kind of confirmed a dark horse you

0:31:21.840,0:31:25.519
know snoke

0:31:22.559,0:31:26.320
theory again total theory not you know

0:31:25.519,0:31:29.760
that this is

0:31:26.320,0:31:31.440
definite so in talking to uh the force

0:31:29.760,0:31:34.799
material podcast

0:31:31.440,0:31:36.640
star wars designer uh ivan menzela

0:31:34.799,0:31:38.080
revealed the process behind designing

0:31:36.640,0:31:40.399
the characters

0:31:38.080,0:31:42.240
um and that while there were some

0:31:40.399,0:31:46.000
interesting reveals

0:31:42.240,0:31:48.880
that um you know he had a love for

0:31:46.000,0:31:51.840
old-fashioned horror movies you know

0:31:48.880,0:31:53.679
those from the hammer studios

0:31:51.840,0:31:55.519
which was a british uh production

0:31:53.679,0:31:58.960
company responsible for

0:31:55.519,0:32:01.919
monster movies such as um the curse of

0:31:58.960,0:32:04.159
frankenstein and the mummy and he

0:32:01.919,0:32:09.519
revealed how the design was

0:32:04.159,0:32:09.519
kind of inspired by peter cushing

0:32:11.120,0:32:16.320
dun dun dun

0:32:14.159,0:32:18.080
sorry i don’t have that sound board okay

0:32:16.320,0:32:19.600
um now of course if you’re going well

0:32:18.080,0:32:22.720
what’s what’s that all about

0:32:19.600,0:32:23.440
well you know peter cushing played in a

0:32:22.720,0:32:26.480
lot of the

0:32:23.440,0:32:30.640
hammer studios videos but

0:32:26.480,0:32:34.399
he was also grand moff tarkin

0:32:30.640,0:32:37.679
correct so one of the

0:32:34.399,0:32:42.880
theories kind of you know was that

0:32:37.679,0:32:43.519
snoke was actually clone of grand moff

0:32:42.880,0:32:45.760
tarkin

0:32:43.519,0:32:46.880
or resurrected version kinda sorta you

0:32:45.760,0:32:49.200
know like hey

0:32:46.880,0:32:50.240
i kind of you know again total fan

0:32:49.200,0:32:53.600
theory

0:32:50.240,0:32:56.399
you know about it not true

0:32:53.600,0:32:57.360
but you could kind of see if you look at

0:32:56.399,0:32:59.600
snoke and you

0:32:57.360,0:33:01.760
look at you know grand moff tarkin you

0:32:59.600,0:33:04.159
know yeah you can kind of see the

0:33:01.760,0:33:04.880
similarities a little bit oh it’s a

0:33:04.159,0:33:06.799
stretch i

0:33:04.880,0:33:08.799
think we’re stretching here yeah just

0:33:06.799,0:33:09.600
saying but it was kind of interesting

0:33:08.799,0:33:12.320
but

0:33:09.600,0:33:14.080
at least to know that the person that

0:33:12.320,0:33:17.440
designed the character

0:33:14.080,0:33:20.720
was going for that look

0:33:17.440,0:33:22.960
more so because of the monster look from

0:33:20.720,0:33:24.080
you know the hammer studios i could

0:33:22.960,0:33:25.919
almost buy that

0:33:24.080,0:33:27.440
you know i thought and i think a lot of

0:33:25.919,0:33:27.760
people thought we talked about this in

0:33:27.440,0:33:31.039
the

0:33:27.760,0:33:33.679
previous podcast that he looked more

0:33:31.039,0:33:35.200
like what we would have expected uh

0:33:33.679,0:33:37.039
palpatine’s master

0:33:35.200,0:33:38.480
right it looked like he was closer to

0:33:37.039,0:33:41.679
that species right

0:33:38.480,0:33:44.000
right but

0:33:41.679,0:33:45.919
you know i guess the the real question

0:33:44.000,0:33:46.799
that i had about the character is he was

0:33:45.919,0:33:49.840
clearly

0:33:46.799,0:33:53.679
very powerful in the force

0:33:49.840,0:33:54.480
how did palpatine create someone that

0:33:53.679,0:33:56.320
powerful

0:33:54.480,0:33:58.080
right and if he did why was he all

0:33:56.320,0:34:01.120
jacked up like that

0:33:58.080,0:34:01.519
was that a product of the cloning you

0:34:01.120,0:34:04.640
know

0:34:01.519,0:34:06.399
was this someone who wasn’t cloned but

0:34:04.640,0:34:10.000
it was someone that palpatine took in

0:34:06.399,0:34:12.480
as a secret apprentice right

0:34:10.000,0:34:13.679
like there’s so much about snoke that

0:34:12.480,0:34:17.119
that we don’t know

0:34:13.679,0:34:18.000
right that was all wiped out in last

0:34:17.119,0:34:19.760
jedi when

0:34:18.000,0:34:22.159
they basically cut them in half for no

0:34:19.760,0:34:24.079
good reason right

0:34:22.159,0:34:25.280
so you know a lot of the speculation

0:34:24.079,0:34:27.040
here is i i

0:34:25.280,0:34:28.639
justified because we don’t know enough

0:34:27.040,0:34:31.520
about the character

0:34:28.639,0:34:32.399
so again an interesting little you know

0:34:31.520,0:34:36.079
could it be

0:34:32.399,0:34:39.280
a clone of his we don’t know okay

0:34:36.079,0:34:41.119
so we’ll we’ll leave that hanging out

0:34:39.280,0:34:42.879
there for right now absolutely

0:34:41.119,0:34:45.359
i think that was all we had for tails

0:34:42.879,0:34:46.879
from the edge of the galaxy right

0:34:45.359,0:34:48.879
so we’re going to take a quick break and

0:34:46.879,0:34:51.520
we’ll be back with our entertainment

0:34:48.879,0:34:51.520

and that’s been you know pushed back

0:37:52.640,0:37:55.839
basically everything

0:37:54.240,0:37:58.160
um you know because at this point they

0:37:55.839,0:37:58.480
don’t know when when the movie theaters

0:37:58.160,0:38:00.640
are

0:37:58.480,0:38:01.599
are going to open um and this was

0:38:00.640,0:38:04.079
something that

0:38:01.599,0:38:06.880
you and i have talked about numerous

0:38:04.079,0:38:07.760
times is that if the movie is ready if

0:38:06.880,0:38:10.800
the movie is

0:38:07.760,0:38:14.800
done release it through streaming

0:38:10.800,0:38:16.560
you know or you know it just kind of

0:38:14.800,0:38:18.000
seems

0:38:16.560,0:38:19.599
i don’t know it kind of seems silly to

0:38:18.000,0:38:22.000
just hold on to it

0:38:19.599,0:38:23.200
you know granted if you’re releasing

0:38:22.000,0:38:27.040
everything that you

0:38:23.200,0:38:28.640
you have in the can now then by the time

0:38:27.040,0:38:30.720
you know things do open up you’re not

0:38:28.640,0:38:33.520
going to have anything to play so i

0:38:30.720,0:38:34.400
you know i understand that but it just

0:38:33.520,0:38:37.119
kind of seems

0:38:34.400,0:38:38.320
silly well we’ll just hold off till next

0:38:37.119,0:38:40.720
year it’s done

0:38:38.320,0:38:42.640
you might as well start make you know

0:38:40.720,0:38:45.920
make some money on it now

0:38:42.640,0:38:46.400
versus you know waiting but then again

0:38:45.920,0:38:48.560
you know

0:38:46.400,0:38:50.160
what what do we know well and i have to

0:38:48.560,0:38:51.440
assume that there’s probably some

0:38:50.160,0:38:53.359
agreements in place

0:38:51.440,0:38:54.960
that say they have to release a certain

0:38:53.359,0:38:56.720
number of movies

0:38:54.960,0:38:58.560
per year with the studios in order to

0:38:56.720,0:39:01.440
keep the deals with the studios going

0:38:58.560,0:39:02.480
sure um on top of that i have to also

0:39:01.440,0:39:05.119
assume

0:39:02.480,0:39:06.960
that they’re grossing more money with in

0:39:05.119,0:39:10.400
studio movies

0:39:06.960,0:39:12.400
than they are with streaming but the

0:39:10.400,0:39:14.160
short-sighted part of that is you have

0:39:12.400,0:39:16.240
no idea what the in

0:39:14.160,0:39:17.520
the theater experience is going to be

0:39:16.240,0:39:19.680
and how many people are

0:39:17.520,0:39:22.400
you’re going to get now right and how

0:39:19.680,0:39:25.440
much those revenues are going to drop

0:39:22.400,0:39:27.520
so yes it’s kind of short-sighted

0:39:25.440,0:39:28.640
holding on to them i can only really see

0:39:27.520,0:39:31.200
that justified

0:39:28.640,0:39:32.240
if there’s a agreement a licensing

0:39:31.200,0:39:34.400
agreement in place

0:39:32.240,0:39:36.640
already right with the studios where you

0:39:34.400,0:39:40.000
have to release a certain number

0:39:36.640,0:39:40.560
but the streaming aspect of it has has

0:39:40.000,0:39:43.200
proven

0:39:40.560,0:39:44.320
to be very effective and very absolutely

0:39:43.200,0:39:47.040
absolutely

0:39:44.320,0:39:47.760
i could see them having different levels

0:39:47.040,0:39:49.839
of movies

0:39:47.760,0:39:50.880
you know your b movies being released

0:39:49.839,0:39:53.040
streaming where your

0:39:50.880,0:39:55.520
blockbusters are still coming and even

0:39:53.040,0:39:57.280
and even disney is kind of

0:39:55.520,0:39:58.800
doing that you know there’s a couple of

0:39:57.280,0:39:59.440
movies that were supposed to come out in

0:39:58.800,0:40:02.560
the theater

0:39:59.440,0:40:03.359
not big blockbusters and now they’ve

0:40:02.560,0:40:06.160
decided

0:40:03.359,0:40:07.040
that those are gonna you know be be

0:40:06.160,0:40:09.440
streaming

0:40:07.040,0:40:10.160
where obviously the others like mulan

0:40:09.440,0:40:13.359
they

0:40:10.160,0:40:15.920
haven’t talked about anything with that

0:40:13.359,0:40:19.040
they want that as a theatrical release

0:40:15.920,0:40:20.160
so well and the thing is is the theaters

0:40:19.040,0:40:22.960
haven’t reopened yet

0:40:20.160,0:40:24.560
right so you haven’t tested the waters

0:40:22.960,0:40:26.720
to see what it’s going to look like

0:40:24.560,0:40:28.319
right put out a movie in the theater

0:40:26.720,0:40:30.640
there’s no idea

0:40:28.319,0:40:32.560
what level of success you can expect is

0:40:30.640,0:40:34.560
it going to be a complete flop

0:40:32.560,0:40:36.400
should we have done a dual release of

0:40:34.560,0:40:37.520
both of them and that’s what i was just

0:40:36.400,0:40:40.640
going to say is that

0:40:37.520,0:40:42.480
maybe what by the time they realize

0:40:40.640,0:40:44.000
okay we’re going to be able to do a

0:40:42.480,0:40:48.079
theatrical release

0:40:44.000,0:40:51.280
they’ll do it with a streaming release

0:40:48.079,0:40:52.400
you know as well so that i i could see

0:40:51.280,0:40:54.160
because the other thing too

0:40:52.400,0:40:55.680
is all the theaters you know they’re not

0:40:54.160,0:40:58.160
going to be opening to

0:40:55.680,0:40:58.800
to full capacity when they first start

0:40:58.160,0:41:02.319
so

0:40:58.800,0:41:04.720
you know how many seats do you

0:41:02.319,0:41:06.880
you know do you book in front and back

0:41:04.720,0:41:08.640
decide to sign you know so a theater

0:41:06.880,0:41:11.920
that normally would hold

0:41:08.640,0:41:15.119
you know a hundred people are you only

0:41:11.920,0:41:15.920
filling with 25 right you know at that

0:41:15.119,0:41:18.319
point

0:41:15.920,0:41:21.040
you’re losing so much more money but i

0:41:18.319,0:41:22.800
could see if you tap on

0:41:21.040,0:41:24.720
you know you could get away with that if

0:41:22.800,0:41:27.920
you did that

0:41:24.720,0:41:30.640
and you had the theater release

0:41:27.920,0:41:31.040
extend their time period right that you

0:41:30.640,0:41:32.640
might be

0:41:31.040,0:41:34.000
able usually it’s three months that

0:41:32.640,0:41:35.760
they’re in the theater you might go to

0:41:34.000,0:41:37.440
four or five months in the theater

0:41:35.760,0:41:40.160
to try and get those people in right and

0:41:37.440,0:41:42.960
again how many people are gonna

0:41:40.160,0:41:44.480
want to go you know obviously we know

0:41:42.960,0:41:47.599
there are people

0:41:44.480,0:41:49.839
that at this point are willing to

0:41:47.599,0:41:51.599
to do anything you know you have people

0:41:49.839,0:41:55.040
that are going out to eat

0:41:51.599,0:41:57.760
um at the restaurants that are are open

0:41:55.040,0:41:59.520
for just outdoor eating you have people

0:41:57.760,0:42:04.560
that are going to these

0:41:59.520,0:42:05.920
uh uh drive-in experiences for concerts

0:42:04.560,0:42:08.079
and comedians and

0:42:05.920,0:42:08.960
and drive-in movies and and things like

0:42:08.079,0:42:10.319
that obviously

0:42:08.960,0:42:12.319
there are people going to disney there

0:42:10.319,0:42:15.119
are people going to universal

0:42:12.319,0:42:16.079
there are people that are yeah i mean

0:42:15.119,0:42:17.680
you have people

0:42:16.079,0:42:19.760
willing to push the boundaries at this

0:42:17.680,0:42:20.640
point in time right but the other thing

0:42:19.760,0:42:22.319
is

0:42:20.640,0:42:24.480
i think you’re going to see a lot of

0:42:22.319,0:42:26.319
theaters closed down because they simply

0:42:24.480,0:42:27.920
cannot operate under the current

0:42:26.319,0:42:31.359
conditions right profitably

0:42:27.920,0:42:33.520
right so it’s you know

0:42:31.359,0:42:34.720
three months six months 12 months from

0:42:33.520,0:42:36.640
now it’s going to be a completely

0:42:34.720,0:42:40.160
different ball game out there

0:42:36.640,0:42:41.520
so yeah we’ll see uh you can’t keep

0:42:40.160,0:42:43.119
pushing these things out

0:42:41.520,0:42:44.480
you’re dumping all this money into them

0:42:43.119,0:42:46.319
you gotta get a return on that

0:42:44.480,0:42:48.079
investment sooner or later you know and

0:42:46.319,0:42:49.440
it you know the article talks about how

0:42:48.079,0:42:53.200
you know top gun

0:42:49.440,0:42:55.520
cost over 150 million dollars to make

0:42:53.200,0:42:57.200
so they know if they do it on streaming

0:42:55.520,0:43:00.160
they’re not going to make

0:42:57.200,0:43:00.800
nearly that much so they need to have

0:43:00.160,0:43:03.760
you know

0:43:00.800,0:43:04.560
the the ticket sales but if they’re

0:43:03.760,0:43:07.440
there

0:43:04.560,0:43:07.760
how how you know how are you going to do

0:43:07.440,0:43:10.720
that

0:43:07.760,0:43:11.599
if you know things are aren’t opening so

0:43:10.720,0:43:13.839
exactly

0:43:11.599,0:43:15.839
so well that was all we had for our

0:43:13.839,0:43:20.400
entertainment news we’ll be right back

0:43:15.839,0:43:20.400
with our insightful picks of the week

0:43:21.740,0:43:26.560
[Applause]

0:43:23.839,0:43:27.599
go for your insightful pick so my

0:43:26.560,0:43:30.640
insightful pick

0:43:27.599,0:43:33.760
uh was a documentary that i

0:43:30.640,0:43:34.160
just kind of happened upon um that was

0:43:33.760,0:43:37.200
on

0:43:34.160,0:43:41.520
uh amazon prime it is called uh

0:43:37.200,0:43:44.560
ray harryhausen special effects titan

0:43:41.520,0:43:48.640
the documentary was actually made

0:43:44.560,0:43:50.480
in 2011 and the film was actually made

0:43:48.640,0:43:53.520
over a 10-year period

0:43:50.480,0:43:56.560
and it actually features interviews and

0:43:53.520,0:43:59.200
tributes from you know

0:43:56.560,0:44:00.640
almost every filmmaker who was ever

0:43:59.200,0:44:04.400
inspired

0:44:00.640,0:44:07.359
by his work so

0:44:04.400,0:44:09.760
the documentary the original documentary

0:44:07.359,0:44:11.920
was from a 1990 documentary ray

0:44:09.760,0:44:14.720
harryhausen

0:44:11.920,0:44:15.760
movement into life made at the time that

0:44:14.720,0:44:19.200
was actually made by

0:44:15.760,0:44:20.480
a film student who now has become a

0:44:19.200,0:44:23.520
trustee

0:44:20.480,0:44:24.800
in the rey and diana harryhausen

0:44:23.520,0:44:28.480
foundation

0:44:24.800,0:44:29.599
and in this documentary you learn about

0:44:28.480,0:44:32.720
the foundation

0:44:29.599,0:44:36.000
which basically is trying to preserve

0:44:32.720,0:44:39.359
all of his models and um

0:44:36.000,0:44:42.400
you know uh props from

0:44:39.359,0:44:45.280
you know all the various movies um

0:44:42.400,0:44:45.760
and one of the funny scenes is they show

0:44:45.280,0:44:48.560
uh

0:44:45.760,0:44:50.000
cleaning out his garage and he was just

0:44:48.560,0:44:51.760
such a pack rat

0:44:50.000,0:44:53.359
where he kept everything and they would

0:44:51.760,0:44:55.359
open this one box

0:44:53.359,0:44:57.359
and they’d pull out something like oh

0:44:55.359,0:45:00.960
this is the head of blah blah blah

0:44:57.359,0:45:04.079
and then you know they find all these um

0:45:00.960,0:45:05.040
pieces um and they were able to put them

0:45:04.079,0:45:08.000
on display

0:45:05.040,0:45:08.720
in a museum so if you don’t know who rey

0:45:08.000,0:45:11.440
um

0:45:08.720,0:45:12.400
harry hausen is if the name doesn’t

0:45:11.440,0:45:15.440
sound familiar

0:45:12.400,0:45:17.440
his work if you see it you’ll know

0:45:15.440,0:45:20.560
exactly who it is he’s

0:45:17.440,0:45:23.599
um a special effects artist who

0:45:20.560,0:45:24.960
really kind of brought the stop-motion

0:45:23.599,0:45:28.480
animation

0:45:24.960,0:45:31.599
um to to life

0:45:28.480,0:45:34.720
um quote-unquote um

0:45:31.599,0:45:37.760
through you know the the 40s 50s

0:45:34.720,0:45:39.680
60s um up until i

0:45:37.760,0:45:41.599
think one of the last films was clash of

0:45:39.680,0:45:44.960
the titans and that’s

0:45:41.599,0:45:48.319
you know the one that i knew of him

0:45:44.960,0:45:51.359
and you know through watching svengoolie

0:45:48.319,0:45:52.480
you know on on saturday nights i’ve

0:45:51.359,0:45:55.680
gotten to see

0:45:52.480,0:45:57.599
you know some of his older stuff um

0:45:55.680,0:46:00.000
you know a lot of the movies are kind of

0:45:57.599,0:46:03.119
those be horror movies

0:46:00.000,0:46:04.319
but his creatures were always the main

0:46:03.119,0:46:07.040
star of it

0:46:04.319,0:46:07.839
and what you see from you know watching

0:46:07.040,0:46:10.960
this

0:46:07.839,0:46:14.079
documentary is you know he

0:46:10.960,0:46:16.960
for most of his his work it was just

0:46:14.079,0:46:17.359
him and maybe one other person that did

0:46:16.960,0:46:19.839
it

0:46:17.359,0:46:21.200
you know he did the camera work he did

0:46:19.839,0:46:24.400
you know the

0:46:21.200,0:46:26.160
the stop-motion um you know animation of

0:48:16.720,0:48:21.839
not surprisingly a documentary but this

0:48:20.000,0:48:25.040
one was actually recommended to me

0:48:21.839,0:48:28.400
by sam my son and

0:48:25.040,0:48:29.680
the uh our co-host of uh insights into

0:48:28.400,0:48:32.880
tomorrow

0:48:29.680,0:48:35.920
and this is in search of the last action

0:48:32.880,0:48:36.800
heroes on amazon prime it’s a

0:48:35.920,0:48:40.400
documentary

0:48:36.800,0:48:40.800
detailing uh the action genre over the

0:48:40.400,0:48:44.079
past

0:48:40.800,0:48:47.119
50 years from the early westerns to the

0:48:44.079,0:48:49.520
contemporary movies of today

0:48:47.119,0:48:50.640
loaded with interviews with stars who

0:48:49.520,0:48:53.760
helped influence

0:48:50.640,0:48:56.240
and shape the films we grew up on

0:48:53.760,0:48:57.280
and what was interesting about this

0:48:56.240,0:49:00.400
documentary

0:48:57.280,0:49:01.280
was they take you through the entire

0:49:00.400,0:49:03.920
history

0:49:01.280,0:49:05.520
of action heroes but they really focus

0:49:03.920,0:49:09.040
on the 80s

0:49:05.520,0:49:12.240
you know 80s they were the really big

0:49:09.040,0:49:16.960
action movies at the time you had

0:49:12.240,0:49:19.200
the rise of schwarzenegger and stallone

0:49:16.960,0:49:21.040
uh you moved into van damme you had

0:49:19.200,0:49:21.920
dolph lundgren you had all these guys

0:49:21.040,0:49:24.480
that came out

0:49:21.920,0:49:26.319
and you know they were what were kind of

0:49:24.480,0:49:28.880
classified in the documentary is the

0:49:26.319,0:49:31.920
muscle-bound action heroes okay

0:49:28.880,0:49:34.960
uh the guys who had these superhero

0:49:31.920,0:49:36.640
physiques um that came out and did you

0:49:34.960,0:49:39.200
know the various

0:49:36.640,0:49:40.559
commando movies and rainbow and all that

0:49:39.200,0:49:42.800
stuff

0:49:40.559,0:49:44.880
and they do a very good job of breaking

0:49:42.800,0:49:49.040
down how

0:49:44.880,0:49:52.559
each movie you know in the genres

0:49:49.040,0:49:54.240
defined what that genre was and they ran

0:49:52.559,0:49:55.920
with that genre for a little while

0:49:54.240,0:49:57.280
and then you moved on to the next one

0:49:55.920,0:49:59.760
and the next one and you get into the

0:49:57.280,0:50:02.880
90s and you start to get into

0:49:59.760,0:50:07.119
the more realistic action hero types

0:50:02.880,0:50:09.040
like uh you know uh john mclean from die

0:50:07.119,0:50:10.960
hard with bruce willis okay

0:50:09.040,0:50:12.240
you know you get these guys who are

0:50:10.960,0:50:14.319
really the average

0:50:12.240,0:50:16.800
everyday kind of guys you get jason

0:50:14.319,0:50:19.280
bourne right you know they’re not these

0:50:16.800,0:50:22.480
you know super well built guys that look

0:50:19.280,0:50:24.400
like they stepped off of the gym

0:50:22.480,0:50:26.480
and it was it was very interesting to

0:50:24.400,0:50:31.839
see how they categorized everything

0:50:26.480,0:50:36.000
and how the the idea of an action hero

0:50:31.839,0:50:37.839
evolved over time and they even

0:50:36.000,0:50:39.599
kind of culminate with the

0:50:37.839,0:50:40.240
schwarzenegger movie the last action

0:50:39.599,0:50:42.400
hero

0:50:40.240,0:50:44.319
okay that kind of lampoons the whole

0:50:42.400,0:50:49.119
action hero genre

0:50:44.319,0:50:51.280
um and how they made fun of it and

0:50:49.119,0:50:53.520
you know they they kind of acknowledged

0:50:51.280,0:50:56.160
the ridiculousness of some of the stuff

0:50:53.520,0:50:58.000
right uh so it was a very good it was

0:50:56.160,0:50:59.920
very long i was kind of surprised at how

0:50:58.000,0:51:01.599
long it was because of how much material

0:50:59.920,0:51:04.480
was presented

0:51:01.599,0:51:06.079
and they interviewed a lot of the b

0:51:04.480,0:51:08.880
action hero stars like you didn’t get a

0:51:06.079,0:51:10.160
schwarzenegger or a stallone

0:51:08.880,0:51:12.160
but you got some of the people they

0:51:10.160,0:51:13.680
co-starred with okay um

0:51:12.160,0:51:15.680
so it was interesting hearing some of

0:51:13.680,0:51:18.000
the behind the scenes

0:51:15.680,0:51:19.760
uh stuff about how easy these people

0:51:18.000,0:51:20.240
were how difficult they were to work

0:51:19.760,0:51:23.359
with

0:51:20.240,0:51:26.800
and and

0:51:23.359,0:51:29.680
the steven seagals

0:51:26.800,0:51:31.440
how he was he came up and and like he

0:51:29.680,0:51:32.960
was this really nice guy early on and

0:51:31.440,0:51:35.680
then as he worked his way through the

0:51:32.960,0:51:38.640
business kind of became a diva

0:51:35.680,0:51:39.760
yeah so it was it was an interesting

0:51:38.640,0:51:43.359
cross-section

0:51:39.760,0:51:43.839
of what it’s like to be an action movie

0:51:43.359,0:51:47.280
star

0:51:43.839,0:51:50.319
so in search of the last action heroes

0:51:47.280,0:51:52.000
on amazon prime and we’ll be back in a

0:51:50.319,0:51:55.839
minute for a quick recap

0:51:52.000,0:51:55.839
of comic-con at home

0:51:58.250,0:52:00.720

[Music]

0:52:00.720,0:52:04.079

[Music]

0:52:14.960,0:52:18.400
walking dead and we did star trek and we

0:52:18.400,0:52:23.680
i did uh there was a robert kirkman

0:52:23.920,0:52:27.920
one just him uh i did that one then

0:52:26.960,0:52:31.280
there was a tv

0:52:27.920,0:52:34.000
guide one where it was like

0:52:31.280,0:52:35.520
various different actors um from

0:52:34.000,0:52:36.319
different shows it was like fan

0:52:35.520,0:52:39.440
favorites

0:52:36.319,0:52:41.280
of you know certain shows um where

0:52:39.440,0:52:44.000
i think everything except for like two

0:52:41.280,0:52:46.000
shows i i actually had watched so i knew

0:52:44.000,0:52:47.680
so it was just kind of like oh um and

0:52:46.000,0:52:49.040
then the kevin smith one i started

0:52:47.680,0:52:52.319
watching but i didn’t

0:52:49.040,0:52:54.480
uh yeah we watched these all on youtube

0:52:52.319,0:52:55.520
did you watch any of them live well none

0:52:54.480,0:52:58.319
of them were actually

0:52:55.520,0:53:00.079
live okay that was that was the thing so

0:52:58.319,0:53:03.359
what you had to do is you had to go

0:53:00.079,0:53:04.800
to um comic-con’s website

0:53:03.359,0:53:06.720
and they would have the schedule and

0:53:04.800,0:53:08.720
they would have you know the list of

0:53:06.720,0:53:11.920
everything that was going to be going on

0:53:08.720,0:53:15.119
and everything had a youtube link

0:53:11.920,0:53:17.040
to it that would become available at

0:53:15.119,0:53:18.079
that time so like what we do in the

0:53:17.040,0:53:21.119
shadows

0:53:18.079,0:53:23.920
wasn’t available until 6 p.m

0:53:21.119,0:53:25.040
on saturday so all of them were actually

0:53:23.920,0:53:27.839
pre-recorded

0:53:25.040,0:53:28.400
nothing was actually after the scheduled

0:53:27.839,0:53:31.440
release

0:53:28.400,0:53:33.280
right everything everything was actually

0:53:31.440,0:53:34.800
pre-recorded because in a couple of

0:53:33.280,0:53:38.240
different ones they said

0:53:34.800,0:53:41.040
well by now you’ve already seen

0:53:38.240,0:53:42.240
you know the series finale or by now

0:53:41.040,0:53:44.079
you’ve seen

0:53:42.240,0:53:45.839
this because it’s already come out so

0:53:44.079,0:53:48.960
obviously they took

0:53:45.839,0:53:52.079
the last you know month or so to

0:53:48.960,0:53:53.839
to go and film you know a lot of these

0:53:52.079,0:53:57.200
so nothing was actually

0:53:53.839,0:54:00.559
uh live that i i knew of i knew

0:53:57.200,0:54:03.040
there were a couple of different live uh

0:54:00.559,0:54:04.319
things that were coming out from people

0:54:03.040,0:54:06.720
that were doing podcasts

0:54:04.319,0:54:07.440
talking about the release of oh did you

0:54:06.720,0:54:09.680
just watch

0:54:07.440,0:54:11.280
you know so you couldn’t find out

0:54:09.680,0:54:15.119
anything until

0:54:11.280,0:54:18.559
that actual um so without going into

0:54:15.119,0:54:20.640
grueling details or or reviews

0:54:18.559,0:54:23.280
what do you think was it a success was

0:54:20.640,0:54:26.559
it not a success

0:54:23.280,0:54:30.079
for what it was i i think it was

0:54:26.559,0:54:32.960
you know um everybody commented

0:54:30.079,0:54:33.839
you know okay it’s nothing like you know

0:54:32.960,0:54:37.520
being in hall

0:54:33.839,0:54:38.079
h um and having you know the thousands

0:54:37.520,0:54:40.559
and thousands

0:54:38.079,0:54:43.440
of screaming fans but it’s nice that

0:54:40.559,0:54:45.599
we’re able to get together and share

0:54:43.440,0:54:47.440
this time with you i think that was kind

0:54:45.599,0:54:50.559
of the overall

0:54:47.440,0:54:52.400
you know we did what we could do and

0:54:50.559,0:54:54.640
hey you know what it’s great that we

0:54:52.400,0:54:57.119
live in this day and age

0:54:54.640,0:54:59.359
where we have this technology available

0:54:57.119,0:55:02.400
if this was something that had happened

0:54:59.359,0:55:04.240
you know 30 years ago we wouldn’t be

0:55:02.400,0:55:04.880
able to do anything we wouldn’t be able

0:55:04.240,0:55:07.760
to do

0:55:04.880,0:55:08.319
any of this um so to be able to con you

0:55:07.760,0:55:11.359
know the

0:55:08.319,0:55:14.000
the the celebrities and and the artists

0:55:11.359,0:55:15.920
being able to connect with their fans

0:55:14.000,0:55:18.720
like this i think you know i think it

0:55:15.920,0:55:22.559
worked out you know i think it also

0:55:18.720,0:55:25.839
gave people a chance um who normally

0:55:22.559,0:55:28.240
don’t attend conventions or

0:55:25.839,0:55:29.040
have never been able to get to san diego

0:55:28.240,0:55:30.880
comic-con

0:55:29.040,0:55:32.799
to kind of give you a little taste of

0:55:30.880,0:55:33.760
what it’s like you know we’ve always

0:55:32.799,0:55:36.079
talked about

0:55:33.760,0:55:37.680
that’s kind of like our bucket list is

0:55:36.079,0:55:41.599
to do san diego

0:55:37.680,0:55:44.960
um so here was a nice little teaser

0:55:41.599,0:55:48.000
you know for it you know i i liked it um

0:55:44.960,0:55:50.720
i wasn’t particularly crazy about

0:55:48.000,0:55:52.880
the inconsistencies between the

0:55:50.720,0:55:55.680
different panels that i watched

0:55:52.880,0:55:57.200
you had very different qualities of

0:55:55.680,0:56:01.040
panel hosts

0:55:57.200,0:56:03.200
you had very different qualities of

0:56:01.040,0:56:04.480
the technology the video that was in use

0:56:03.200,0:56:05.680
like some of these guys knew that they

0:56:04.480,0:56:06.880
were getting

0:56:05.680,0:56:09.520
you know they were going to be doing the

0:56:06.880,0:56:10.720
panel and they didn’t bother to check to

0:56:09.520,0:56:12.000
make sure that they could keep a

0:56:10.720,0:56:14.319
connection going

0:56:12.000,0:56:15.599
or their lighting was terrible or their

0:56:14.319,0:56:17.920
cameras didn’t work

0:56:15.599,0:56:20.000
right right or you couldn’t hear them

0:56:17.920,0:56:20.799
you know they’re doing entire talk shows

0:56:20.000,0:56:23.040
right now

0:56:20.799,0:56:24.400
remotely over zoom and other types of

0:56:23.040,0:56:26.160
things like this where they’ve got

0:56:24.400,0:56:27.200
absolutely gorgeous setups and i think

0:56:26.160,0:56:28.480
they probably could have invested a

0:56:27.200,0:56:31.040
little bit more in that

0:56:28.480,0:56:31.920
right what i would like to see going

0:56:31.040,0:56:35.920
forward

0:56:31.920,0:56:38.559
because we’ve watched other conventions

0:56:35.920,0:56:40.079
remotely like we went to celebration but

0:56:38.559,0:56:41.520
couldn’t get into any of the panels

0:56:40.079,0:56:43.359
right right and i watched them all

0:56:41.520,0:56:46.240
remotely and it was fantastic

0:56:43.359,0:56:48.319
right so what i’d love to see is when we

0:56:46.240,0:56:49.200
do go back to a regular convention

0:56:48.319,0:56:51.040
schedule

0:56:49.200,0:56:52.640
that they still stream these and they

0:56:51.040,0:56:54.720
give us these things

0:56:52.640,0:56:55.920
right streamed live and available for

0:56:54.720,0:56:59.119
watching

0:56:55.920,0:57:02.559
but do it professionally produced right

0:56:59.119,0:57:04.079
and i could even see you know if

0:57:02.559,0:57:05.760
you know because obviously they didn’t

0:57:04.079,0:57:07.839
make any money off of this

0:57:05.760,0:57:09.520
you know right the everything was free

0:57:07.839,0:57:11.920
you didn’t have to pay for anything

0:57:09.520,0:57:13.280
because i do know so they were making

0:57:11.920,0:57:16.799
some money on commercials

0:57:13.280,0:57:20.240
right but there were

0:57:16.799,0:57:22.000
some conventions that are doing these

0:57:20.240,0:57:25.280
online versions

0:57:22.000,0:57:26.079
um that you do have to pay to even watch

0:57:25.280,0:57:27.760
because i understand

0:57:26.079,0:57:29.040
people need to you know you gotta pay

0:57:27.760,0:57:29.680
the bills because somebody has to pay

0:57:29.040,0:57:32.799
the bill

0:57:29.680,0:57:36.000
so i could see them even doing

0:57:32.799,0:57:37.280
a weekend pass for you know 20 bucks

0:57:36.000,0:57:37.680
well and i wouldn’t have a problem with

0:57:37.280,0:57:39.359
that

0:57:37.680,0:57:40.880
if it was professional exactly that’s

0:57:39.359,0:57:43.359
what that’s what i’m saying like i could

0:57:40.880,0:57:45.520
definitely see us saying next year okay

0:57:43.359,0:57:46.480
we’re still not ready to go to san diego

0:57:45.520,0:57:50.000
just yet

0:57:46.480,0:57:51.920
but for 30 bucks we get an all-access

0:57:50.000,0:57:53.520
pass to all the streaming events because

0:57:51.920,0:57:55.599
that’s the other thing too is that

0:57:53.520,0:57:58.079
you know when we went to celebration

0:57:55.599,0:57:59.839
even certain things they streamed

0:57:58.079,0:58:01.119
certain things they didn’t certain

0:57:59.839,0:58:04.079
things that they you know

0:58:01.119,0:58:05.920
are hush-hush so i could see them even

0:58:04.079,0:58:07.680
doing like a premium

0:58:05.920,0:58:09.599
you know like oh you want this one well

0:58:07.680,0:58:11.599
that’s the 50 one

0:58:09.599,0:58:12.720
you know to be able to to get the

0:58:11.599,0:58:16.559
exclusive spot

0:58:12.720,0:58:19.760
and yeah have it professionally done

0:58:16.559,0:58:20.559
and you know you’ll get a lot more

0:58:19.760,0:58:22.960
people to

0:58:20.559,0:58:24.480
to watch the you know so you know i

0:58:22.960,0:58:26.880
think overall i think it was

0:58:24.480,0:58:28.240
it was successful it was certainly worth

0:58:26.880,0:58:32.720
the money i paid to

0:58:28.240,0:58:35.680
see it um what was what was cute

0:58:32.720,0:58:36.799

0:58:35.680,0:58:39.920

0:58:36.799,0:58:43.040
