    • Downtown Disney Unveils Beautiful Chadwick Boseman Mural

    • https://bit.ly/3cAUnDa 
      • A powerful mural of the late Chadwick Boseman was unveiled at Downtown Disney on Thursday. Created by author and artist Nikkolas Smith, the image is of Boseman exchanging the Wakanda salute with a child wearing a Black Panther mask.
      • “This one is special. My King Chad tribute is now on a wall on display at Downtown Disney,” Smith wrote on Instagram along with several pictures of his work. “It is a full circle moment for me: my final two projects as a Disney Imagineer last summer were working on the Children’s Hospital project and the Avengers Campus. To millions of kids, T’Challa was a legend larger than life, and there was no one more worthy to fill those shoes than Chadwick Boseman.”
      • Smith continued: “I’m so thankful to be able to honor Chadwick’s life and purpose in this way. I am grateful to the Disney family for being so supportive of my journey as an artist.”
      • Boseman died Aug. 28 at the age of 43. The news of his death shocked his legions of fans and Hollywood.
      • While Disneyland is currently closed amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Downtown Disney shopping and dining district is open for business.
    • Evel Knievel estate sues Disney and Pixar over Toy Story 4 character Duke Caboom
    • https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/evel-knievel-estate-sues-disney-and-pixar-over-toy-story-4-character-duke-caboom-b571413.html
    • https://bit.ly/36mABKX 
      • Disney is being sued by Evel Knievel’s estate over claims that it used the stunt performer’s likeness in Toy Story 4.
      • Released in 2019, the fourth instalment in the Disney/Pixar franchise featured a toy called Duke Caboom (voiced by Keanu Reeves), who wore a white jumpsuit with red accents while performing tricks on a motorbike.
      • In legal documents seen by TMZ, K&K Promotions have filed a lawsuit against Disney and Pixar claiming that the character is a clear copy of Knievel.
      • They allege that Disney did not seek permission to use his likeness, which they own, and that the character is a near replica of the original Evil Knievel toy from the 1970s, in which the stuntman is sat on a wind-up motorcycle.
      • Knievel’s son, Kelly, said of the lawsuit: “Evel Knievel did not thrill millions around the world, break his bones and spill his blood just so Disney could make a bunch of money.
      • “He remains an instantly recognised icon, as demonstrated by the huge popularity of the re-issued Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle among kids who hadn’t even been born when my father died a dozen years ago.”
      • K&K also claim that Disney instructed the Toy Story 4 cast to avoid using Knievel’s names during interviews.
      • In a statement shared with The Independent, the Walt Disney Company said: “The claims are without merit and we intend to defend against them vigorously in court.”
      • Knievel, who died in 2007, was best known for performing a range of dangerous stunts on motorbike, including jumping over the Caesar’s Palace fountains in Las Vegas and riding over 13 buses at Wembley Stadium.
    • Disneyland Animatronics Can Dance Now And My Mind Is Blown
    • https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2555155/disneyland-animatronics-can-dance-now-and-my-mind-is-blown
    • https://bit.ly/36aZDfW 
      • Walt Disney Imagineering was created by Walt Disney back in the 1950s to make the impossible real. For decades Disney theme parks have made us look at new attractions and caused us to wonder how in the world the Imagineers made these experiences real. One of the most important creations of Imagineering was the audio-animatronic, realistic-looking figures that were capable of simple movement. At least, they used to only be capable of simple movement. A brand new Beauty and the Beast attraction has opened at Tokyo Disneyland and it includes brand new animatronics that are literally dancing.
      • In the 1960s Walt Disney Imagineering created an animatronic Abraham Lincoln that was capable of standing up and speaking. In the ensuing decades, these creations have become more realistic looking and have gained more mobility. But we’ve never seen anything quite like the new Belle and Adam animatronics at the end of the new Tokyo Disneyland Beauty and the Beast attraction. While the original video is no longer available, it’s been saved by Twitter and it is simply phenomenal. Also, as it turns out the song “Beauty and the Beast” is just as beautiful in Japanese.
      • Tokyo Disneyland is the one Disney Park that isn’t owned and operated entirely by Disney. It’s operated by the Oriental Land Company, which licenses the Disney IP from the company and contracts with WED Enterprises (Imagineering) to design the attractions. The Oriental Land Company tends to not have the same financial restrictions that Disney itself has, and thus the two Tokyo Disney Resort parks have some of the most impressive attractions of any theme parks in the world.
      • https://twitter.com/Kurtnorby/status/1307995650135482368?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1307995650135482368%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cinemablend.com%2Fnews%2F2555155%2Fdisneyland-animatronics-can-dance-now-and-my-mind-is-blown
      • And this certainly is impressive. With a combination of animatronic movement and what is likely a turntable, Belle and her prince are truly dancing together. The movement of the footwork is smooth as they sway back and forth. It’s remarkable just how far animatronics have come considering this all started with Tiki Birds.
      • Fans are already hoping to see this attraction or something like it make its way stateside. And the good news is that there’s a good chance we will. While it’s anybody’s guess if we could see this exact attraction appear at Disneyland or Walt Disney World, the work on designing the technology has now been done, making it that much cheaper to recreate it. There’s a benefit to having a contract with a company with a nearly infinite pocketbook. It’s fitting considering the first human animatronics were designed by Imagineering as part of the 1964 World’s Fair. Disney got to design the technology but other people paid for it.
      • That’s not to say that the domestic Disney parks aren’t going to have some impressive animatronics before too long. We’ve seen prototypes of “stunt” animatronics that are expected to be part of Avengers’ Campus at Disney California Adventure. the new land was scheduled to open in July before Disneyland Resort’s closure. at this point, it’s far from clear when the new land will be open.
      • Unfortunately, traveling to Tokyo Disney Resort is going be difficult for a lot of people, so hopefully, we will see these animatronics make their way to NorthAmerica so that others have a chance to experience them.

    • Pedro Pascal Reportedly Not Quitting The Mandalorian, Still On Board
    • https://wegotthiscovered.com/tv/pedro-pascal-reportedly-not-quitting-the-mandalorian/?fbclid=IwAR1rC27w7y8rAYF1PAkxuQbMcZxuYoskYkvoyUNKcVGhyF9CnPdg1MNgfsc
    • https://bit.ly/2S3CkMJ 
      • Last week, a worrying rumor started circulating that Pedro Pascal had exited The Mandalorian. Insider Grace Randolph shared that multiple sources had told her that the actor had proved “difficult” on set and was demanding a chance to take his helmet off in more scenes, due to the discomfort of wearing the heavy headgear. Producers wouldn’t budge on this, so Pascal was allegedly fired/resigned after a “pretty bad” split midway through production.
      • Of course, this isn’t what fans want to hear, to say the least, but thankfully, a new report has now come out which completely refutes the previous claims. Tipster Mikey Sutton of Geekosity has shared that his own sources close to the production “firmly deny” that Pascal has left the show in any capacity. And these sources provided a couple of reasons for why the Wonder Woman 1984 star making his alleged ultimatum wouldn’t make any sense.
      • For one, they point out that the actor would have been informed before signing on that his face would be covered up at virtually all times, so it’s unlikely that he would suddenly take issue with this “integral part of his character” so late in the game. What’s more, Pascal is known to share his portrayal of Din Djarin with stunt performers Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder. So, if he ever did become uncomfortable working under the helmet, one of them could take over for a bit.
      • Sutton’s source also had some strong words in reply to the rumor. “(This is) another example of how people are trying to damage the Star Wars brand for a personal beef or profit from it on social media,” they said.
      • Even before this counter-report, it was already hard to swallow that Pascal would be so difficult on set. After all, we’ve never heard anything negative about the actor’s working ethic before and he’s quite beloved on social media for being a nice guy.
      • In any case, we’ll hopefully get some firm confirmation on this in the near future. But until then, we look forward to The Mandalorian season 2 premiering on Disney Plus on October 30th.
    • Pedro Pascal Reportedly Refusing To Return To The Set Of The Mandalorian
    • https://wegotthiscovered.com/tv/pedro-pascal-reportedly-refusing-return-set-mandalorian/?fbclid=IwAR2whqxLEbZbQd3wIRMRSnjF54gQtJl2OtveVvKIRnuiIlxLWEa0axVNsuE
    • https://bit.ly/30bGkiD 
      • Almost every single Star Wars project during the Disney era has suffered from some kind of behind the scenes turmoil, but the first season of The Mandalorian appeared to go off without a single hitch. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni looked to have avoided the creative differences that have seen so many filmmakers come and go over the last half a decade, and the show turned out all the better for it.
      • However, rumors were making the rounds a couple of weeks ago that leading man Pedro Pascal had grown dissatisfied with his role in The Mandalorian, so much so that he walked off the set halfway through shooting season 2 and refused to return. Those claims were swiftly debunked, but a new report says that while the actor hasn’t quit the show, he won’t be back on set and will instead remain onboard in a voice-only capacity, with stunt performers continuing to suit up as Mando.
      • Admittedly, the latest supposed update comes from Doomcock, so should be taken with an industrial sized helping of salt. The mysterious YouTuber seems to have a vendetta against Disney’s handling of the franchise and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy in particular, and has made some wildly unsubstantiated claims about Star Wars in the not too distant past.
      • According to his sources, though, Pascal hasn’t quit The Mandalorian, but he reportedly became jealous of Baby Yoda stealing all of the spotlight while he was forced to keep his face hidden under a helmet for almost the entirety of seasons 1 and 2. As a result, his participation in seasons 3 and 4 will keep him restricted to the recording booth to the relief of both the Game of Thrones alum and the crew, who were said to be unhappy with his behavior.
      • Of course, Pascal would have known full well when he agreed to join The Mandalorian in the first place that the helmet almost never came off, never mind the idea of a professional actor becoming actively resentful of a puppet is a bit absurd. Still, it seems that there could be some sort of trouble brewing behind the scenes and we can only hope that it’s all resolved before production fires up again.

    • Samuel L. Jackson Returning To MCU For Nick Fury Disney+ Show
    • https://screenrant.com/nick-fury-show-samuel-l-jackson-marvel-disney/?utm_source=SR-FB-P&utm_medium=Social-Distribution&utm_campaign=SR-FB-P&fbclid=IwAR1AZME03BGGrr7ws9FHawqSn0pNnbIyyTn9Y2c38cFatW8SQwcs6hK2q50
    • https://bit.ly/33acugx 
      • Samuel L. Jackson is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a Nick Fury TV show on Disney+. The actor debuted in the MCU during the now-famous Iron Man post-credits scene, becoming a franchise lynchpin throughout the entire Infinity Saga. Jackson reprised the role a number of times over the past decade, becoming a fan-favorite in the process. He appeared in all three MCU movies from 2019, including a key supporting role in Captain Marvel that detailed Fury’s days before the Avengers Initiative.
      • Audiences last saw Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where it was revealed he had tasked Talos with impersonating him while he takes a much-needed break and is relaxing on a Skrull spaceship. Since then, there’s been little word on what Fury’s future holds as the MCU prepares to enter Phase 4 and beyond, but the character is definitely going to be a major part of the franchise moving forward. He’s the latest MCU figure to become the subject of a TV show.
      • Per Variety, Jackson is headlining a Nick Fury TV show that will premiere on Disney+. Kyle Bradstreet will write and executive produce the series, which does not have a production start date or a release date at this point.
      • Plot details are unknown right now, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Nick Fury show deal with SWORD in some capacity. SWORD was initially teased in the aforementioned Spider-Man: Far From Home stinger, and the organization will have a presence in WandaVision, which premieres on Disney+ this year. Fury being a part of SWORD reads as a natural progression for his character, particularly following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Though Fury’s no longer the director of SHIELD in the MCU, he’s still committed to keeping the world safe. Knowing what kind of enemies are out there, it’d be logical for him to head SWORD and stay prepared for the next threat.
      • Marvel has a full slate of Phase 4 movies on the way, but Disney+ is going to be an integral platform for the franchise moving forward. In addition to WandaVision, the studio has other shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, She-Hulk, and more in the pipeline. Similar to Lucasfilm, Marvel is taking full advantage of the streaming service by fleshing out their universe and telling stories that can’t necessarily be tackled in the films. It’ll be interesting to see how the Nick Fury show will connect to the larger franchise and if this opens the door for Fury to show up in an upcoming Marvel film. WandaVision connects with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so crossovers aren’t out of the question.
    • The Best and Worst Moments of the 2020 Emmys
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/21/arts/television/emmys-winners-and-losers.html
    • https://nyti.ms/3czCZyN 
      • With the pandemic making packed red carpets and large, glitzy gatherings impossible, almost no one knew what the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony would look like going into Sunday night’s telecast.
      • Turns out it reflected what much of life has looked like for the past six months or so: People sequestered in their homes, interacting awkwardly over glitchy broadband connections.
      • Along the way, there were awards show hallmarks, like a monologue from a tuxedoed host (albeit in a mostly empty arena), some stilted banter, bits that fell flat and a few moments of genuine poignancy. But in general, the 2020 Emmys, like most of us, did the best it could under extraordinarily challenging circumstances. Here are some of the night’s defining themes, shows and moments.
      • It was a disorienting opener for disorienting times. Jimmy Kimmel, the ceremony’s host, initially seemed to be delivering a fairly routine opening monologue, with pauses for laughter and cuts to the star-studded audience.
      • “You know what they say,” he began. “You can’t have a virus without a host.”
      • But the applause? Fake. The cuts to the crowd? Those were clips filmed during past awards shows. After a few minutes, Kimmel dropped the ruse as cameras revealed an empty Staples Center: “Of course we don’t have an audience,” he said. “This isn’t a MAGA rally.”
      • The seats weren’t entirely empty, though. Spread among the front rows were life-size cutouts of several nominees, who in any other year would have attended the ceremony. Among them, however, was the real Jason Bateman, sitting stock-still and trying to pass for cardboard.
      • “I haven’t left the house for six months,” he pleaded when Kimmel advised him to leave for safety reasons. “I want Mario Lopez to ask me about my pants.” 
      • The Emmys lined up dozens of live feeds from nominees in locations all over the world, but in the first part of the show, the only one it needed was in Toronto: The Canadian sitcom “Schitt’s Creek” swept the comedy category, taking home seven wins. The show won a total of nine Emmys for its sixth and final season, the most ever for a comedy in a single year.
      • Catherine O’Hara kicked things off with her first acting Emmy win for playing the wig-obsessed diva Moira Rose. “I will forever be grateful to Eugene and Daniel Levy for the opportunity to play a woman of a certain age — my age — who gets to fully be her ridiculous self,” she said as she accepted her statuette at the show’s party in Toronto.
      • Then came “Schitt’s Creek” wins in every comedy category presented on Sunday, including acting awards for the rest of the Rose family — Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy — and others for writing, directing and best comedy series.
      • “This has been the greatest experience of my life,” Daniel Levy said of making the show. “This is completely overwhelming.” 
      • The limited series category was even more stacked than usual this year.
      • HBO’s “Watchmen” turned one of the most hallowed comic book titles into pulpy disquisition on systemic racism and police brutality, months before both issues exploded (again) into the national consciousness. The star-studded “Little Fires Everywhere,” on Hulu, explored white privilege and class conflict with great nuance. FX’s “Mrs. America,” about the ’70s clash over the Equal Rights Amendment, was loaded with exquisite performances, led by Cate Blanchett’s portrayal of Phyllis Schlafly.
      • But in the end it wasn’t even close. “Watchmen” took home four awards on Sunday, including best limited series. It also collected limited-series wins for best actress (King), best supporting actor (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and best writing (Cord Jefferson and Lindelof, the series creator). It won a total of 11 Emmy awards, including those given out during the Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies last week.
      • “History is mystery,” Lindelof said in accepting the best limited series award. “It is broken into a million puzzle pieces and many are missing. We know where those pieces are, but we don’t seek them out because we know finding them will hurt. Sometimes we cause that hurt. Maybe we even benefited from it, but we have to name it before we can repair it.” — JEREMY EGNER
      • With the largely remote structure, this year’s Emmys would seem to present an exceptional logistical challenge: How are these statues being delivered?
      • Alas, the only answer we got to that question came in the form of an extended Kia ad, embedded within the awards show. Crass commercialism degrades us all, product placement is a scourge and replacing genuine information with joyless sponcon was a particularly irritating choice in this case.
      • On a show that claims to celebrate artistry in television, why embrace one of the medium’s least creative vices? 
      • “She’s younger than Baby Yoda and she already has an Emmy,” Jimmy Kimmel said after a visibly shaken Zendaya, 24, became the youngest Emmy winner for best lead actress in a drama. She won for her role as Rue on “Euphoria,” the HBO drama about high-school students navigating love, sex, drugs and identity conundrums.
      • “This is pretty crazy,” Zendaya said as she clasped her hands over her statuette.
      • The Disney-actress-turned-drama-star beat out the category’s other nominees Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Colman, Sandra Oh and Laura Linney to claim the award — not to mention the incumbent winner, Jodie Comer, who set the record last year when she won for “Killing Eve” at age 26.
      • “Thank you to all of the other incredible women in this category,” Zendaya said. “I admire you so much.”
      • The actress also said she was inspired by others her age who were working to make a difference in the world. “I just want to say that there is hope in the young people out there,” she said. “To say to all our peers out there doing the work in the streets: I see you, I admire you, I thank you.” — SARAH BAHR

        • In anticipation of the 2020 presidential election, All In: The Fight for Democracy examines the often overlooked, yet insidious issue of voter suppression in the United States. The film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy from the very beginning. With the perspective and expertise of Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, the documentary offers and insider’s look into laws and barriers to voting that most people don’t even know are a threat to their basic rights as citizens of the United States.

purpose in this way and i am grateful

0:04:42.080,0:04:45.919
to the disney family for being so

0:04:44.400,0:04:50.000
supportive of my journey

0:04:45.919,0:04:52.080
as an artist so obviously disneyland is

0:04:50.000,0:04:55.440
still closed right now but the

0:04:52.080,0:04:58.560
shopping area is opened uh

0:04:55.440,0:04:59.199

0:05:06.320,0:05:10.240
this a tribute or had this been

0:05:08.000,0:05:12.639
something that had been planned uh

0:05:10.240,0:05:13.440
all along i don’t think this was planned

0:05:12.639,0:05:15.759
at

0:05:13.440,0:05:17.520
i think this was just a very recent this

0:05:15.759,0:05:20.880
was disney going out of its way

0:05:17.520,0:05:21.520
to to make a tribute right right that’s

0:05:20.880,0:05:25.120
very nice

0:05:21.520,0:05:29.039
yeah very nice uh tell us about

0:05:25.120,0:05:30.320
uh duke kaboom so disney is actually

0:05:29.039,0:05:33.280
being sued by

0:05:30.320,0:05:36.160
evil knievel’s estate over claims that

0:05:33.280,0:05:40.720
it used the stunt performers likeness

0:05:36.160,0:05:42.960
in toy story 4. so released in 2019 the

0:05:40.720,0:05:44.080
fourth installment of the disney pixar

0:05:42.960,0:05:46.960
franchise

0:05:44.080,0:05:48.880
featured a toy called duke kaboom who

0:05:46.960,0:05:51.199
was voiced by keanu reeves

0:05:48.880,0:05:52.160
and who wore a white jumpsuit with red

0:05:51.199,0:05:54.960
accents

0:05:52.160,0:05:55.440
while performing tricks on his motorbike

0:05:54.960,0:05:57.919
now

0:05:55.440,0:05:58.639
if you didn’t see the movie duke kaboom

0:05:57.919,0:06:02.319
was

0:05:58.639,0:06:06.160
canadian he had a big giant maple leaf

0:06:02.319,0:06:08.319
on on the back of his you know

0:06:06.160,0:06:09.199
outfit and i believe even on his his

0:06:08.319,0:06:12.479
motorcycle

0:06:09.199,0:06:13.280
but anyway um so the legal documents

0:06:12.479,0:06:17.039
that were

0:06:13.280,0:06:20.160
um that tmz actually saw um

0:06:17.039,0:06:22.720
showed that k and k promotions

0:06:20.160,0:06:24.880
had filed a lawsuit against disney and

0:06:22.720,0:06:27.280
pixar claiming that the character is a

0:06:24.880,0:06:29.360
clear copy of knievel

0:06:27.280,0:06:31.280
they allege that disney did not seek

0:06:29.360,0:06:32.240
permission to use his likeness which

0:06:31.280,0:06:34.720
they own

0:06:32.240,0:06:35.759
and that the character is a near replica

0:06:34.720,0:06:39.120
of the original

0:06:35.759,0:06:41.680
evil knievel toy from the 1970s

0:06:39.120,0:06:43.440
in which the stuntman is sat on a

0:06:41.680,0:06:46.960
wind-up motorcycle

0:06:43.440,0:06:49.280
knievel’s son kelly said of the lawsuit

0:06:46.960,0:06:50.160
evil knievel did not thrill millions

0:06:49.280,0:06:53.520
around the world

0:06:50.160,0:06:55.599
break his bones or s sp his blood

0:06:53.520,0:06:56.720
just so disney could make a bunch of

0:06:55.599,0:06:59.280
money

0:06:56.720,0:07:00.400
i think he think he’s a little mad um he

0:06:59.280,0:07:04.000
said he remains an

0:07:00.400,0:07:06.639
instant an instantly recognized icon

0:07:04.000,0:07:07.919
as demonstrated by the huge popularity

0:07:06.639,0:07:11.039
of the reissue

0:07:07.919,0:07:12.479
evil knievel stunt cycle among kids who

0:07:11.039,0:07:15.919
hadn’t even been born

0:07:12.479,0:07:18.639
when my father died a dozen years ago

0:07:15.919,0:07:20.880
k k also claims that disney instructed

0:07:18.639,0:07:23.440
the toy story forecast to avoid

0:07:20.880,0:07:24.880
using knievel’s names during the

0:07:23.440,0:07:28.240
interview

0:07:24.880,0:07:30.800
in a statement that was shared

0:07:28.240,0:07:32.720
the walt disney company uh had said the

0:07:30.800,0:07:33.520
claims are without merit and we intend

0:07:32.720,0:07:36.720
to defend

0:07:33.520,0:07:39.199
against them vigorously in court

0:07:36.720,0:07:40.639
well what i find interesting is they

0:07:39.199,0:07:44.000
admit in this lawsuit

0:07:40.639,0:07:46.720
that it is a near replica

0:07:44.000,0:07:47.440
so it’s not a replica right they also

0:07:46.720,0:07:50.240
admit

0:07:47.440,0:07:51.120
that disney instructed all of the

0:07:50.240,0:07:53.680
participants

0:07:51.120,0:07:55.840
to not refer to evil knievel right they

0:07:53.680,0:07:57.840
were interviewed

0:07:55.840,0:08:00.879
so it seems to me as though they took

0:07:57.840,0:08:03.520
steps to ensure that they weren’t

0:08:00.879,0:08:04.800
illegally using their representation

0:08:03.520,0:08:06.479
right

0:08:04.800,0:08:08.800
the fact that they slapped a you know

0:08:06.479,0:08:11.440
canadian maple leaf on the back of his

0:08:08.800,0:08:12.000
suit kind of helps that out too and and

0:08:11.440,0:08:14.240
the fact

0:08:12.000,0:08:15.680
that you know like part of his his

0:08:14.240,0:08:19.280
backstory

0:08:15.680,0:08:23.520
you know the his his owner you know his

0:08:19.280,0:08:26.160
his boy was canadian jean-pierre or

0:08:23.520,0:08:27.680
something you know along those lines and

0:08:26.160,0:08:30.319
and that

0:08:27.680,0:08:30.879
all of his statements and whatever about

0:08:30.319,0:08:34.640
you know

0:08:30.879,0:08:36.959
were very canadian right

0:08:34.640,0:08:39.519
well and the other thing is if you look

0:08:36.959,0:08:41.599
back to the 60s and the 70s and you look

0:08:39.519,0:08:42.640
at the stunt shows that were popular

0:08:41.599,0:08:45.839
right

0:08:42.640,0:08:47.839
evil knievel didn’t corner the market on

0:08:45.839,0:08:52.240
being a motorcycle stunt driver right

0:08:47.839,0:08:54.880
right so what duke kaboom represents

0:08:52.240,0:08:55.279
is a conglomeration of all of those of

0:08:54.880,0:08:58.720
that

0:08:55.279,0:09:00.880
genre and that time period right so

0:08:58.720,0:09:01.760
i’m i’m i’m going to go out on a limb

0:09:00.880,0:09:03.519
here and and

0:09:01.760,0:09:05.200
back disney on this one and say that

0:09:03.519,0:09:06.160
they did what they needed to do right or

0:09:05.200,0:09:08.640
even the fact

0:09:06.160,0:09:10.160
you know like you were saying it was a

0:09:08.640,0:09:13.519
conglomerate

0:09:10.160,0:09:16.959
how many toys are rip-offs of other toys

0:09:13.519,0:09:18.800
right you know so like the woody doll

0:09:16.959,0:09:20.160
you know what is that really is that

0:09:18.800,0:09:21.839
more of a howdy duty

0:09:20.160,0:09:23.680
really when you think about it exactly

0:09:21.839,0:09:27.680
you know who was the most popular

0:09:23.680,0:09:30.640
cowboy in in the 50s it was you know so

0:09:27.680,0:09:31.839
you know it’s not like it was the

0:09:30.640,0:09:33.920
cabbage patch kid

0:09:31.839,0:09:35.680
you know it was the knockoff version

0:09:33.920,0:09:36.240
right you know because he failed he

0:09:35.680,0:09:38.560
couldn’t

0:09:36.240,0:09:39.279
you know any time he tried to to do it

0:09:38.560,0:09:43.040
he always

0:09:39.279,0:09:45.760
failed dukabum always failed so

0:09:43.040,0:09:47.360
can evil field yeah well you know the

0:09:45.760,0:09:49.200
whole broken bones thing so

0:09:47.360,0:09:50.399
and it’s funny they mentioned that they

0:09:49.200,0:09:52.560
re-released the

0:09:50.399,0:09:54.080
evil knievel stun cycle did they

0:09:52.560,0:09:57.360
re-release that before

0:09:54.080,0:10:00.000
or after toy story four yeah no

0:09:57.360,0:10:02.320
i’m guessing probably after they

0:10:00.000,0:10:04.320
capitalized on duke kaboom in that movie

0:10:02.320,0:10:06.800
so that they could re-release a toy that

0:10:04.320,0:10:07.360
the kid knows about right which they

0:10:06.800,0:10:09.680
admit

0:10:07.360,0:10:10.560
right so i don’t think this one’s going

0:10:09.680,0:10:14.480
to go too far

0:10:10.560,0:10:16.240
yeah anyway lawsuits out of the way

0:10:14.480,0:10:18.320
because you know it’s really not a week

0:10:16.240,0:10:21.600
of insights and entertainment if we’re

0:10:18.320,0:10:24.720
not suing disney for something

0:10:21.600,0:10:25.519
tell us about our dancing audio

0:10:24.720,0:10:28.720
animatronics

0:10:25.519,0:10:29.839
so this was really cool so walt disney

0:10:28.720,0:10:33.000
imagineering

0:10:29.839,0:10:34.640
um was created back you know in the

0:10:33.000,0:10:37.920
1950s

0:10:34.640,0:10:40.079
and you know if you don’t know

0:10:37.920,0:10:41.680
much about the company or what they do

0:10:40.079,0:10:43.839
they’re the ones that are responsible

0:10:41.680,0:10:45.440
for all of the rides all the ride

0:10:43.839,0:10:48.079
technology

0:10:45.440,0:10:49.200
um even the resorts and and the things

0:10:48.079,0:10:52.320
that go into it

0:10:49.200,0:10:53.600
you know um just it’s amazing what they

0:10:52.320,0:10:56.959
come up with

0:10:53.600,0:10:59.920
but one of the things that they’re so

0:10:56.959,0:11:01.600
known for are their audio animatronics

0:10:59.920,0:11:04.800
and the realistic looking

0:11:01.600,0:11:07.839
figures um you know and

0:11:04.800,0:11:12.079
just the you know what they can do

0:11:07.839,0:11:14.399
um so you know one of the first audio

0:11:12.079,0:11:17.120
animatronics full you know

0:11:14.399,0:11:18.240
people i guess you could say was uh

0:11:17.120,0:11:21.279
abraham lincoln

0:11:18.240,0:11:24.720
with moments uh with lincoln and

0:11:21.279,0:11:28.160
we’ve talked about this before where

0:11:24.720,0:11:29.120
um you know they had issues where the

0:11:28.160,0:11:31.440
the fluid

0:11:29.120,0:11:32.880
you know started leaking and the fluid

0:11:31.440,0:11:34.320
happened to be red so it looked like

0:11:32.880,0:11:38.079
lincoln got shot

0:11:34.320,0:11:42.160
and if you see you know video of these

0:11:38.079,0:11:45.120
early animatronics very stiff but yet

0:11:42.160,0:11:46.880
still kind of interesting you know the

0:11:45.120,0:11:49.600
the human aspect of it

0:11:46.880,0:11:50.880
um obviously a lot of the audio

0:11:49.600,0:11:52.959
animatronics

0:11:50.880,0:11:54.480
it actually really started with the tiki

0:11:52.959,0:11:57.600
birds um

0:11:54.480,0:11:58.959
and again very simplistic and over the

0:11:57.600,0:12:02.800
years they’ve gotten

0:11:58.959,0:12:06.079
um better with their technology

0:12:02.800,0:12:08.399
so now uh there’s a new beauty and the

0:12:06.079,0:12:11.120
beast attraction that opened at tokyo

0:12:08.399,0:12:11.680
disneyland and it has a brand new audio

0:12:11.120,0:12:14.880
on

0:12:11.680,0:12:18.399
animatronic and they are literally

0:12:14.880,0:12:21.519
dancing um tokyo disney is

0:12:18.399,0:12:22.160
actually the one disney park that isn’t

0:12:21.519,0:12:24.399
owned

0:12:22.160,0:12:25.360
entirely by disney it’s actually

0:12:24.399,0:12:28.000
operated

0:12:25.360,0:12:29.120
by the oriental land company which

0:12:28.000,0:12:32.639
license

0:12:29.120,0:12:35.760
uh the disney ip from the company and

0:12:32.639,0:12:37.440
contracts with um wed

0:12:35.760,0:12:40.160
industries which is the imagineering

0:12:37.440,0:12:42.720
part to help design the attractions

0:12:40.160,0:12:43.519
and the oriental land company tends not

0:12:42.720,0:12:45.600
to have

0:12:43.519,0:12:47.440
the same financial restrictions that

0:12:45.600,0:12:50.720
disney itself has

0:12:47.440,0:12:53.680
so with two disney resort parks

0:12:50.720,0:12:54.480
they actually have some of the more

0:12:53.680,0:12:57.760
high-tech

0:12:54.480,0:12:59.760
rides uh at their parks than

0:12:57.760,0:13:00.959
any of the other he has financial

0:12:59.760,0:13:03.920
restrictions

0:13:00.959,0:13:05.360
really yeah i find that i find that hard

0:13:03.920,0:13:06.000
to believe disney has more money than

0:13:05.360,0:13:09.120
god

0:13:06.000,0:13:10.560
yeah well not as much money if if disney

0:13:09.120,0:13:13.600
has more money than god

0:13:10.560,0:13:16.959
oriental land company is

0:13:13.600,0:13:19.920
is above that um but what’s interesting

0:13:16.959,0:13:20.639
is that usually when a lot of the stuff

0:13:19.920,0:13:24.160
comes

0:13:20.639,0:13:26.320
you know opens in in tokyo because

0:13:24.160,0:13:28.240
they’ve already established that ride

0:13:26.320,0:13:29.040
technology then it can kind of trickle

0:13:28.240,0:13:31.680
down

0:13:29.040,0:13:32.320
to some of the other parks so that’s

0:13:31.680,0:13:34.160
where

0:13:32.320,0:13:35.360
like rise of the resistance the ride

0:13:34.160,0:13:38.320
technology

0:13:35.360,0:13:39.600
that they used for that was taken from

0:13:38.320,0:13:43.600
rides that

0:13:39.600,0:13:46.399
had already been established in in tokyo

0:13:43.600,0:13:48.399
um so unfortunately the video um had

0:13:46.399,0:13:50.399
gotten posted but then had

0:13:48.399,0:13:52.240
gotten taken down but the person that

0:13:50.399,0:13:54.639
had posted it on twitter

0:13:52.240,0:13:55.920
it was still available do you have that

0:13:54.639,0:13:58.399
i’m not even going to play it because i

0:13:55.920,0:14:00.800
don’t want to risk getting taken down

0:13:58.399,0:14:02.720
well if you if you look in our show

0:14:00.800,0:14:05.920
notes and and look for it

0:14:02.720,0:14:09.040
um it’s really kind of cool to

0:14:05.920,0:14:09.760
to watch you know it’s belle and and the

0:14:09.040,0:14:11.440
beast

0:14:09.760,0:14:12.880
you know in a final scene and and

0:14:11.440,0:14:16.240
they’re dancing and

0:14:12.880,0:14:18.399
you would you could swear that it was

0:14:16.240,0:14:21.040
regular people you know dancing not

0:14:18.399,0:14:24.880
these not these audio animatronics

0:14:21.040,0:14:28.560
um so hopefully now that

0:14:24.880,0:14:31.680
the technology is out there usually

0:14:28.560,0:14:34.240
again it can start trickling down to you

0:14:31.680,0:14:37.279
know some of the other parks

0:14:34.240,0:14:40.240
now in california adventure

0:14:37.279,0:14:42.000
uh the advent avengers campus which was

0:14:40.240,0:14:44.959
supposed to be opening up

0:14:42.000,0:14:47.120
this past summer but due to obviously

0:14:44.959,0:14:49.440
the park closing and whatnot

0:14:47.120,0:14:52.240
now there’s a delay there’s supposed to

0:14:49.440,0:14:56.320
be some really cool audio animatronic

0:14:52.240,0:14:59.279
stunt characters um that are part of

0:14:56.320,0:15:01.680
that whole area so you know it’ll be

0:14:59.279,0:15:03.920
interesting to see once that opens up

0:15:01.680,0:15:05.519
you know what kind of technology they

0:15:03.920,0:15:08.160
have for that

0:15:05.519,0:15:09.920
what would be really cool would be a

0:15:08.160,0:15:12.800
documentary on disney plus

0:15:09.920,0:15:14.720
showing the creation of these because

0:15:12.800,0:15:17.199
we’ve watched the

0:15:14.720,0:15:19.120
documentaries in the past you kind of

0:15:17.199,0:15:20.639
get to see the evolution of audio

0:15:19.120,0:15:22.720
animatronics as you watch the

0:15:20.639,0:15:26.079
documentaries

0:15:22.720,0:15:27.920
to the point where you even see where

0:15:26.079,0:15:29.440
the jerkiness that you had talked about

0:15:27.920,0:15:32.320
before right

0:15:29.440,0:15:33.360
they had wound up making changes to the

0:15:32.320,0:15:35.759
pneumatics

0:15:33.360,0:15:36.800
right so that it looked you know it

0:15:35.759,0:15:39.199
wasn’t

0:15:36.800,0:15:40.800
precise movements in stopping like you

0:15:39.199,0:15:42.399
know human movements

0:15:40.800,0:15:44.240
you overshoot where your target is and

0:15:42.399,0:15:46.399
you gently come back right

0:15:44.240,0:15:47.519
and they even started working that type

0:15:46.399,0:15:50.720
of technology

0:15:47.519,0:15:52.800
into the existing animatronics so it’s

0:15:50.720,0:15:54.000
always amazing to watch how they develop

0:15:52.800,0:15:57.360
the technology for these

0:15:54.000,0:16:00.560
things and see like you know you go to

0:15:57.360,0:16:03.040
hall of presidents right now and

0:16:00.560,0:16:03.680
you know lincoln stands up from a chair

0:16:03.040,0:16:06.880
right

0:16:03.680,0:16:09.920
and and gestures and right

0:16:06.880,0:16:10.639
it’s amazingly realistic right and i

0:16:09.920,0:16:13.680
remember

0:16:10.639,0:16:16.399
back when epcot opened and

0:16:13.680,0:16:18.399
uh the american adventure and all the

0:16:16.399,0:16:19.120
different characters that they had in

0:16:18.399,0:16:22.560
that

0:16:19.120,0:16:25.920
and the biggest thing was uh franklin

0:16:22.560,0:16:28.399
walking up the stairs and that was

0:16:25.920,0:16:30.079
you know revolutionary because they

0:16:28.399,0:16:32.320
never had a character

0:16:30.079,0:16:34.000
you know the biggest thing was you know

0:16:32.320,0:16:36.000
abraham lincoln standing up

0:16:34.000,0:16:37.839
that was that was a big deal you know

0:16:36.000,0:16:40.959
getting him to to stand up

0:16:37.839,0:16:44.399
in a fluid movement and then you had

0:16:40.959,0:16:46.000
um you know uh franklin walking up the

0:16:44.399,0:16:47.199
stairs and then the next kind of

0:16:46.000,0:16:50.560
evolution

0:16:47.199,0:16:53.519
was uh the wicked witch from

0:16:50.560,0:16:55.519
the great movie ride she was like the

0:16:53.519,0:16:57.120
third generation or fourth generation i

0:16:55.519,0:16:59.279
i don’t remember what their terminology

0:16:57.120,0:17:00.480
was because again when she came up and

0:16:59.279,0:17:03.199
started moving

0:17:00.480,0:17:04.559
she looked like a real person and now

0:17:03.199,0:17:05.199
you’ve gotten to the point where you

0:17:04.559,0:17:08.319
have

0:17:05.199,0:17:10.640
um like the johnny depp uh figures

0:17:08.319,0:17:12.240
in in pirates of the caribbean where

0:17:10.640,0:17:13.919
people are like

0:17:12.240,0:17:15.360
are you are you sure that’s not a you

0:17:13.919,0:17:17.760
know amazingly realistic

0:17:15.360,0:17:18.959
yeah and well and then you’ve got who’s

0:17:17.760,0:17:23.120
what is it it’s uh

0:17:18.959,0:17:24.559
john in in uh carousel of progress right

0:17:23.120,0:17:27.120
they were able to get him the break

0:17:24.559,0:17:27.120
dance so

0:17:27.520,0:17:31.600
really by accident that was totally by

0:17:30.160,0:17:33.440
accident

0:17:31.600,0:17:36.640
so very cool hopefully we’ll see some of

0:17:33.440,0:17:39.520
this technology coming to a park near us

0:17:36.640,0:17:41.520
and i think that was all we had for our

0:17:39.520,0:17:43.200
disney detective this week

0:17:41.520,0:17:47.840

0:18:56.320,0:19:01.039
for tails from the edge of the galaxy

0:19:02.160,0:19:08.480
so the other week we reported that

0:19:05.440,0:19:11.679
pedro pascal was quitting

0:19:08.480,0:19:13.200
well now it seems early in the week he

0:19:11.679,0:19:15.679
wasn’t quitting

0:19:13.200,0:19:16.320
and then later in the week it was like

0:19:15.679,0:19:19.440
well

0:19:16.320,0:19:23.520
he’s really not in it as much

0:19:19.440,0:19:25.200
anymore so very confusing uh you know

0:19:23.520,0:19:28.240
it’s one of those it kind of

0:19:25.200,0:19:31.360
changes minute by minute so

0:19:28.240,0:19:33.919
last week obviously rumors

0:19:31.360,0:19:34.799
were circulating that pedro pascal was

0:19:33.919,0:19:38.240
exiting

0:19:34.799,0:19:40.400
the mandalorian insider grace randolph

0:19:38.240,0:19:41.440
had shared that multiple sources had

0:19:40.400,0:19:43.600
told her

0:19:41.440,0:19:44.480
that the actor had proven difficult on

0:19:43.600,0:19:46.720
the set

0:19:44.480,0:19:48.160
and was demanding a chance to take his

0:19:46.720,0:19:51.280
helmet off more

0:19:48.160,0:19:54.640
in more scenes due to it being you know

0:19:51.280,0:19:56.480
uncomfortable with the heavy uh headgear

0:19:54.640,0:19:58.799
and that producers weren’t going to

0:19:56.480,0:20:01.440
budge and he basically

0:19:58.799,0:20:02.400
was you know allegedly fired slash

0:20:01.440,0:20:05.120
resigned

0:20:02.400,0:20:06.159
after a pretty bad split midway through

0:20:05.120,0:20:08.400
production

0:20:06.159,0:20:09.760
but then a new report came out that

0:20:08.400,0:20:13.440
basically refutes

0:20:09.760,0:20:16.559
all of those claims uh tipster

0:20:13.440,0:20:19.120
mikey sutton of geeksology

0:20:16.559,0:20:19.600
uh had shared that his own sources close

0:20:19.120,0:20:22.640
to the

0:20:19.600,0:20:23.600
production firmly denied that pascal had

0:20:22.640,0:20:26.400
left the show in

0:20:23.600,0:20:27.280
any capacity and that these sources

0:20:26.400,0:20:30.240
proved

0:20:27.280,0:20:31.440
you know provided a couple of different

0:20:30.240,0:20:33.919
reasons

0:20:31.440,0:20:36.159
for one the actor would have been

0:20:33.919,0:20:38.240
informed before signing on that his face

0:20:36.159,0:20:41.679
would be covered up for virtually

0:20:38.240,0:20:45.760
all of the you know

0:20:41.679,0:20:48.240
the um uh the production time

0:20:45.760,0:20:49.120
the the show the running time which that

0:20:48.240,0:20:51.600
was something that

0:20:49.120,0:20:53.760
you know we had talked about um so it’s

0:20:51.600,0:20:55.280
kind of unlikely that all of a sudden he

0:20:53.760,0:20:57.280
would have had an issue

0:20:55.280,0:20:58.480
with his character not having so much

0:20:57.280,0:21:02.159
face time

0:20:58.480,0:21:05.919
um and that um

0:21:02.159,0:21:08.559
that he also has you know the

0:21:05.919,0:21:10.000
two different stunt coordinators who who

0:21:08.559,0:21:12.960
fill in for him

0:21:10.000,0:21:13.840
so if you know something was

0:21:12.960,0:21:17.200
uncomfortable

0:21:13.840,0:21:20.400
being on set somebody else could have

0:21:17.200,0:21:22.880
filled in for him um so that was

0:21:20.400,0:21:24.320
you know kind of the the one thing was

0:21:22.880,0:21:26.320
like hey everything’s fine

0:21:24.320,0:21:27.679
everything’s okay and then a couple of

0:21:26.320,0:21:30.400
days later

0:21:27.679,0:21:32.880
now another report comes out basically

0:21:30.400,0:21:36.240
saying that he’s refusing to return

0:21:32.880,0:21:37.919
to the set of the mandalorian so just

0:21:36.240,0:21:39.360
when we thought everything seemed to be

0:21:37.919,0:21:42.400
okay

0:21:39.360,0:21:43.440
now it seems that he’s refusing to

0:21:42.400,0:21:46.640
return

0:21:43.440,0:21:50.240
but again you know those are kind of

0:21:46.640,0:21:52.880
um being debunked as well saying well

0:21:50.240,0:21:54.080
he’s not returning to the set he’s only

0:21:52.880,0:21:57.280
returning

0:21:54.080,0:21:59.760
as a voice only actor

0:21:57.280,0:22:00.320
um because again he has the two guys

0:21:59.760,0:22:03.520
that do

0:22:00.320,0:22:05.360
the stunts they could basically

0:22:03.520,0:22:06.880
do all the filming and then he would

0:22:05.360,0:22:10.240
just voice over

0:22:06.880,0:22:13.280
um but then what was really kind of

0:22:10.240,0:22:14.799
you know funny was you had

0:22:13.280,0:22:17.120
and we’ve talked about this person

0:22:14.799,0:22:20.400
before uh the doom [ __ ]

0:22:17.120,0:22:22.720
uh youtuber so he had a whole

0:22:20.400,0:22:24.240
thing that came out that according to

0:22:22.720,0:22:27.440
his sources

0:22:24.240,0:22:30.720
pascal didn’t quit but became very

0:22:27.440,0:22:33.840
jealous of baby yoda that

0:22:30.720,0:22:36.159
baby yoda was stealing all the spotlight

0:22:33.840,0:22:37.919
and that he was forced to keep his face

0:22:36.159,0:22:40.880
hidden under the helmet

0:22:37.919,0:22:42.720
for the entire you know the majority of

0:22:40.880,0:22:45.520
season one and season two

0:22:42.720,0:22:47.360
and as a result his participation in

0:22:45.520,0:22:48.320
season three and four will keep him

0:22:47.360,0:22:52.080
restricted

0:22:48.320,0:22:56.400
to the recording booth so that

0:22:52.080,0:22:56.400
this way it keeps everybody happy

0:22:57.600,0:23:05.919
jealous of baby yoda you know it’s

0:23:01.360,0:23:05.919
all this is plausible

0:23:06.880,0:23:10.320
it all obviously can’t be true because

0:23:08.960,0:23:10.720
there’s so many conflicting stories

0:23:10.320,0:23:14.080
right

0:23:10.720,0:23:16.159
right what is clear is that something’s

0:23:14.080,0:23:17.840
going on there’s some drama going on

0:23:16.159,0:23:21.360
right on the set

0:23:17.840,0:23:24.400
that disney is sounds like it’s trying

0:23:21.360,0:23:24.400
to do its best to manage

0:23:25.039,0:23:28.640
and this is sort of like what we said

0:23:27.440,0:23:31.520
when we talked about the

0:23:28.640,0:23:32.240
issue originally is that he’s under

0:23:31.520,0:23:34.799
contract

0:23:32.240,0:23:35.600
and with a property that’s this

0:23:34.799,0:23:37.679
lucrative

0:23:35.600,0:23:39.360
and with this much promise and this much

0:23:37.679,0:23:41.200
future that they’ve already laid

0:23:39.360,0:23:42.640
out right they’re not gonna let him out

0:23:41.200,0:23:43.919
of his contract

0:23:42.640,0:23:46.320
so they’re gonna do whatever they have

0:23:43.919,0:23:49.360
to do to keep peace on the set

0:23:46.320,0:23:52.480
and keep production going and you know

0:23:49.360,0:23:55.200
we had people in past

0:23:52.480,0:23:56.240
articles that we covered talk about the

0:23:55.200,0:23:58.640
fact that

0:23:56.240,0:24:00.320
they don’t need him in the suit right

0:23:58.640,0:24:02.640
and there’s no point having him in the

0:24:00.320,0:24:02.640
suit

0:24:03.200,0:24:07.360
other than reactionary stuff on the set

0:24:06.159,0:24:09.120
but

0:24:07.360,0:24:10.640
you know if all they need him to do is

0:24:09.120,0:24:14.240
voice it over

0:24:10.640,0:24:16.320
that makes him expendable

0:24:14.240,0:24:18.480
because you can easily find someone that

0:24:16.320,0:24:21.120
can impersonate the voice

0:24:18.480,0:24:22.080
right because it’s not like his voice

0:24:21.120,0:24:24.640
like if you hear

0:24:22.080,0:24:26.480
him speaking it doesn’t necessarily

0:24:24.640,0:24:27.919
sound like him he doesn’t have

0:24:26.480,0:24:30.000
because it’s modulated coming through

0:24:27.919,0:24:32.559
the helmet right so it’s not like james

0:24:30.000,0:24:35.919
earl jones like when james earl jones

0:24:32.559,0:24:37.960
speaks you know it’s him when pedro

0:24:35.919,0:24:39.279
pascal speaks as the mandalorian

0:24:37.960,0:24:41.919
[Music]

0:24:39.279,0:24:42.720
yeah it’s pretty generic right so yeah

0:24:41.919,0:24:45.919
you could

0:24:42.720,0:24:46.640
technically find you know some someone

0:24:45.919,0:24:49.200
else to

0:24:46.640,0:24:51.120
to play that part yeah and you know it

0:24:49.200,0:24:51.600
also speaks to the speculation that we

0:24:51.120,0:24:54.480
had

0:24:51.600,0:24:55.760
uh earlier in the week that you know

0:24:54.480,0:24:57.600
there are rumors that

0:24:55.760,0:25:00.480
boba fett is supposed to appear in

0:24:57.600,0:25:02.559
season two

0:25:00.480,0:25:04.320
boba fett there was they were allegedly

0:25:02.559,0:25:07.520
bringing back

0:25:04.320,0:25:09.799
tamora morrison to play boba fett

0:25:07.520,0:25:11.679
so it’s entirely possible that the

0:25:09.799,0:25:14.640
mandalorian

0:25:11.679,0:25:16.880
is really just a generic part and it’s

0:25:14.640,0:25:19.919
played by different mandalorians

0:25:16.880,0:25:21.440
as the torch is handed off and

0:25:19.919,0:25:23.600
you could very well see that torch

0:25:21.440,0:25:25.200
handed off to boba fett who’s already a

0:25:23.600,0:25:27.279
popular character right

0:25:25.200,0:25:28.480
and people are clamoring to get more of

0:25:27.279,0:25:30.799
him yeah

0:25:28.480,0:25:32.159
and you could see you know pedro

0:25:30.799,0:25:34.000
pascal’s mandalorian

0:25:32.159,0:25:36.000
fall by the wayside when someone else

0:25:34.000,0:25:38.720
steps in yeah

0:25:36.000,0:25:40.720
and you would think knowing all this

0:25:38.720,0:25:43.279
stuff

0:25:40.720,0:25:44.799
he’d be a little bit more accommodating

0:25:43.279,0:25:46.640
right

0:25:44.799,0:25:48.799
knowing that you’re as expendable as you

0:25:46.640,0:25:49.600
are maybe he doesn’t want to be there

0:25:48.799,0:25:51.520
anymore maybe

0:25:49.600,0:25:53.679
maybe we pick up the torch with someone

0:25:51.520,0:25:53.679
else

0:25:53.760,0:25:57.279
i hope it doesn’t have a negative impact

0:25:55.520,0:25:59.120
on the show because i love absolutely

0:25:57.279,0:26:02.000
love the first season

0:25:59.120,0:26:03.360
and it’s got a lot of promise to it and

0:26:02.000,0:26:04.400
the new season is right around the

0:26:03.360,0:26:07.760
corner so

0:26:04.400,0:26:09.600
it is and and there’s mention from the

0:26:07.760,0:26:11.200
other source here about a season

0:26:09.600,0:26:13.360
four i haven’t heard anything about a

0:26:11.200,0:26:16.400
season four being confirmed yet

0:26:13.360,0:26:17.679
season three right right so maybe

0:26:16.400,0:26:19.039
there’s a little more promise out there

0:26:17.679,0:26:22.000
yeah maybe

0:26:19.039,0:26:24.240
so that was all we had for our tails

0:26:22.000,0:26:25.919
from the edge of the galaxy we’ll be

0:26:24.240,0:26:28.320

tell us about samuel l jackson getting

0:27:40.159,0:27:46.080
getting his own variety show

0:27:42.960,0:27:46.080
now that would be funny

0:27:46.559,0:27:51.600
so samuel l jackson is returning to the

0:27:49.440,0:27:55.120
marvel cinematic universe

0:27:51.600,0:27:58.320
for a nick fury tv show on

0:27:55.120,0:28:01.200
disney plus surprise surprise uh so the

0:27:58.320,0:28:02.080
actor debuted in the mcu during the now

0:28:01.200,0:28:05.679
famous

0:28:02.080,0:28:07.440
uh iron man post credit scene becoming a

0:28:05.679,0:28:09.760
franchise

0:28:07.440,0:28:11.440
legend really throughout the whole

0:28:09.760,0:28:15.200
entire

0:28:11.440,0:28:17.440
infinity saga jackson

0:28:15.200,0:28:19.600
reprised his role in a number a number

0:28:17.440,0:28:21.840
of times over the past decade becoming a

0:28:19.600,0:28:25.200
fan favorite in the process

0:28:21.840,0:28:28.799
he appeared in all three uh mcu movies

0:28:25.200,0:28:30.960
uh in nineteen uh in 2019

0:28:28.799,0:28:32.159
including a key supporting role in

0:28:30.960,0:28:35.039
captain marvel

0:28:32.159,0:28:36.240
that obviously gave details about his

0:28:35.039,0:28:39.840
life before

0:28:36.240,0:28:42.880
the avengers initiative

0:28:39.840,0:28:45.200
so audiences last saw fury in spider-man

0:28:42.880,0:28:48.799
far from home where it was revealed

0:28:45.200,0:28:50.960
that he had tasked uh talos

0:28:48.799,0:28:54.240
uh with impersonating him while he was

0:28:50.960,0:28:57.039
taking a much-needed break and relaxing

0:28:54.240,0:28:58.399
on a skrull spaceship since then there’s

0:28:57.039,0:29:02.000
been little word of what

0:28:58.399,0:29:02.559
fury’s future holds as the mcu prepares

0:29:02.000,0:29:05.039
to enter

0:29:02.559,0:29:06.640
phase four and beyond um but the

0:29:05.039,0:29:08.480
character is definitely going to be a

0:29:06.640,0:29:09.279
major part of the franchise moving

0:29:08.480,0:29:12.240
forward

0:29:09.279,0:29:13.520
and he’s obviously the latest mcu figure

0:29:12.240,0:29:16.799
to become the subject

0:29:13.520,0:29:20.240
of a tv show

0:29:16.799,0:29:23.600
so plot detail the plot details

0:29:20.240,0:29:25.120
are unknown as of right now but

0:29:23.600,0:29:26.720
in this article it talked about it that

0:29:25.120,0:29:29.760
it wouldn’t be surprised

0:29:26.720,0:29:31.039
if it saw um the nick fury show dealing

0:29:29.760,0:29:35.039
with sword

0:29:31.039,0:29:36.000
in some capacity and sword was initially

0:29:35.039,0:29:40.240
teased

0:29:36.000,0:29:42.080
um in spider-man far far from home and

0:29:40.240,0:29:44.399
that the organization will have a

0:29:42.080,0:29:45.120
presence in juan division which will be

0:29:44.399,0:29:48.640
coming to

0:29:45.120,0:29:52.000
disney plus uh later this year uh

0:29:48.640,0:29:54.000
fury being a part of sword reads as a

0:29:52.000,0:29:56.480
natural progression for his character

0:29:54.000,0:29:58.320
particularly following the events of

0:29:56.480,0:30:02.559
infinity war

0:29:58.320,0:30:05.840
and endgame so obviously we have

0:30:02.559,0:30:08.080
one division which is um

0:30:05.840,0:30:10.960
going to be coming this year and then

0:30:08.080,0:30:12.880
you also have falcon and winter soldier

0:30:10.960,0:30:14.240
which i believe they’ve now pushed to

0:30:12.880,0:30:16.799
next year you have

0:30:14.240,0:30:17.679
loki now we’re hearing more news with

0:30:16.799,0:30:21.440
she-hulk

0:30:17.679,0:30:24.480
with different casting on that and now

0:30:21.440,0:30:26.480
might as well get a uh a nick fury show

0:30:24.480,0:30:27.840
to to add into the mix so disney plus is

0:30:26.480,0:30:31.360
really becoming like

0:30:27.840,0:30:34.880
marvel mcu you know offshoot

0:30:31.360,0:30:34.880
yeah and this is actually kind of

0:30:35.200,0:30:38.480
oh disturbing i think i think they’re

0:30:37.919,0:30:40.240
gonna

0:30:38.480,0:30:42.880
they’re they’re risking diluting the

0:30:40.240,0:30:44.559
entire brand at this point in time

0:30:42.880,0:30:46.960
and it’s funny i read an article this

0:30:44.559,0:30:49.440
week uh where

0:30:46.960,0:30:50.159
they had interviewed kevin feige who

0:30:49.440,0:30:53.520
runs the

0:30:50.159,0:30:56.640
mcu and he

0:30:53.520,0:30:57.679
took exception to agents of shield the

0:30:56.640,0:31:01.279
television show

0:30:57.679,0:31:03.679
on abc playing in the mcu

0:31:01.279,0:31:04.880
which is why this last season of agents

0:31:03.679,0:31:07.360
of shield

0:31:04.880,0:31:08.080
had their alternate universe okay so

0:31:07.360,0:31:10.240
they were able

0:31:08.080,0:31:11.519
to pull them out well the last two

0:31:10.240,0:31:13.679
seasons really right

0:31:11.519,0:31:14.799
they were able to pull them out of the

0:31:13.679,0:31:16.559
mcu

0:31:14.799,0:31:18.080
that’s why you didn’t see any crossovers

0:31:16.559,0:31:20.880
okay so the

0:31:18.080,0:31:22.559
fact that you’re going to then take your

0:31:20.880,0:31:26.240
characters from your mcu

0:31:22.559,0:31:27.519
right and create literally a show for

0:31:26.240,0:31:29.840
each of them

0:31:27.519,0:31:31.519
i think is probably going to be a little

0:31:29.840,0:31:34.480
too much

0:31:31.519,0:31:36.320
i could certainly see one or two shows

0:31:34.480,0:31:37.840
coming out of there with the characters

0:31:36.320,0:31:40.399
crossing over

0:31:37.840,0:31:41.760
okay and that would work but when you’re

0:31:40.399,0:31:43.519
getting to the point that you’re giving

0:31:41.760,0:31:45.519
everyone and their brother

0:31:43.519,0:31:47.440
right is maria hill now to get her own

0:31:45.519,0:31:48.799
show right right who’s left who doesn’t

0:31:47.440,0:31:50.000
have a show who doesn’t have a show yet

0:31:48.799,0:31:53.440
that needs a show right me

0:31:50.000,0:31:57.360
me now my question is

0:31:53.440,0:31:58.159
is this because there’s that much story

0:31:57.360,0:32:00.000
to tell

0:31:58.159,0:32:01.200
in the mcu with these characters as you

0:32:00.000,0:32:02.559
move to phase four

0:32:01.200,0:32:04.399
and you’re bringing different characters

0:32:02.559,0:32:08.159
to the movies

0:32:04.399,0:32:11.200
or is it that disney plus is

0:32:08.159,0:32:12.240
desperate for new content to put up

0:32:11.200,0:32:14.240
there

0:32:12.240,0:32:16.399
they can’t rely on their back catalog to

0:32:14.240,0:32:18.000
keep subscriptions going

0:32:16.399,0:32:20.240
if that’s the case then you’re making a

0:32:18.000,0:32:23.440
mistake because now you really

0:32:20.240,0:32:24.880
are diluting your product and they try

0:32:23.440,0:32:26.320
to do the same thing with the star wars

0:32:24.880,0:32:27.440
movies where it didn’t work with star

0:32:26.320,0:32:30.320
wars it works with the

0:32:27.440,0:32:31.279
mcu right right the advantage that you

0:32:30.320,0:32:36.240
do have with

0:32:31.279,0:32:39.519
the mcu is in the comic book world

0:32:36.240,0:32:41.519
they’ve rebooted these characters

0:32:39.519,0:32:43.440
numerous times because you have to put a

0:32:41.519,0:32:46.880
comic book out on a regular schedule

0:32:43.440,0:32:49.600
right right so that’s a little bit more

0:32:46.880,0:32:52.480
in tune with this type of delusion

0:32:49.600,0:32:54.399
but i don’t know like you still have

0:32:52.480,0:32:56.640
very strong characters that you’re

0:32:54.399,0:32:58.080
you’re going to have to delve into a

0:32:56.640,0:33:01.440
level

0:32:58.080,0:33:04.000
that’s probably deeper than some of the

0:33:01.440,0:33:06.559
fans are going to want to see

0:33:04.000,0:33:07.120
and you know i go back to the the solo

0:33:06.559,0:33:08.480
movie

0:33:07.120,0:33:10.320
right you know nobody needed the

0:33:08.480,0:33:11.760
backstory for han solo everyone knew

0:33:10.320,0:33:13.840
what it was

0:33:11.760,0:33:15.679
you knew enough about han solo that you

0:33:13.840,0:33:16.960
didn’t need a backs

0:33:15.679,0:33:18.480
so what’d they do they came out with a

0:33:16.960,0:33:19.519
movie to give you a backstory and they

0:33:18.480,0:33:21.039
killed the character

0:33:19.519,0:33:22.799
right right you didn’t need a backstory

0:33:21.039,0:33:24.159
for darth vader everyone knew who darth

0:33:22.799,0:33:26.159
vader was

0:33:24.159,0:33:28.559
he got prequels and he killed the

0:33:26.159,0:33:31.840
character of anakin skywalker

0:33:28.559,0:33:33.760
he’s you know he’s a whiny teenager

0:33:31.840,0:33:35.840
they did the same thing with boba fett

0:33:33.760,0:33:37.360
you know you see boba fett appearing in

0:33:35.840,0:33:38.880
clone wars and then

0:33:37.360,0:33:40.559
or attack of the clones and then they

0:33:38.880,0:33:42.399
carry through and he’s a whiny little

0:33:40.559,0:33:44.640
kid in clone wars so

0:33:42.399,0:33:46.320
like you have these characters that you

0:33:44.640,0:33:50.000
put out on the stage

0:33:46.320,0:33:52.640
that have this this aura about them

0:33:50.000,0:33:54.399
and there’s an assumed background to him

0:33:52.640,0:33:56.480
you don’t need to see that background

0:33:54.399,0:33:59.519
when you could put darth vader

0:33:56.480,0:34:01.600
in that opening scene of a new hope and

0:33:59.519,0:34:03.440
make him the number one villain in the

0:34:01.600,0:34:06.159
first 30 seconds of a movie

0:34:03.440,0:34:08.720
or first three minutes of a movie

0:34:06.159,0:34:10.639
there’s no need for a background

0:34:08.720,0:34:13.200
but what you’re dealing with with the

0:34:10.639,0:34:14.720
mcu is all these characters have some

0:34:13.200,0:34:17.359
kind of established background because

0:34:14.720,0:34:21.200
they’ve been in comics for so long right

0:34:17.359,0:34:23.599
so that’s where it kind of works

0:34:21.200,0:34:25.440
but what you’re seeing with mcu versus

0:34:23.599,0:34:28.639
the comics is they’re borrowing

0:34:25.440,0:34:31.760
elements of the comics and they’re

0:34:28.639,0:34:32.320
munging them together and you’re getting

0:34:31.760,0:34:35.119
twists

0:34:32.320,0:34:36.399
like the scrolls were the bad guys you

0:34:35.119,0:34:37.760
know they were the ones that were coming

0:34:36.399,0:34:40.320
in as shape shifters to take

0:34:37.760,0:34:41.200
over shield and the government all that

0:34:40.320,0:34:42.960
stuff

0:34:41.200,0:34:45.520
well turns out they’re the good guys now

0:34:42.960,0:34:47.200
right so

0:34:45.520,0:34:49.119
they’re creative in the way that they’re

0:34:47.200,0:34:50.639
trying to pull this stuff in

0:34:49.119,0:34:52.320
but i’ll be curious to see because

0:34:50.639,0:34:53.679
that’s too many shows for me to watch

0:34:52.320,0:34:55.119
i mean that’s that’s what six shows

0:34:53.679,0:34:55.679
right there you’re looking at yeah but

0:34:55.119,0:34:59.760
also

0:34:55.679,0:35:02.640
a lot of the the disney shows are only

0:34:59.760,0:35:05.359
six to ten episodes they’re not you know

0:35:02.640,0:35:08.560
you’re we’re not talking like a 20

0:35:05.359,0:35:11.920
they’re really more like mini you know

0:35:08.560,0:35:15.119
uh mini series is really what they’re

0:35:11.920,0:35:17.280
you know and extended movies i just hope

0:35:15.119,0:35:18.160
they don’t ruin the characters by trying

0:35:17.280,0:35:21.359
to delve too

0:35:18.160,0:35:22.560
deeply and like everyone kind of knows

0:35:21.359,0:35:25.280
you’re hinted at

0:35:22.560,0:35:26.480
at nick fury’s background in the mcu

0:35:25.280,0:35:28.640
right

0:35:26.480,0:35:30.320
you don’t need to go into too much

0:35:28.640,0:35:32.960
detail because if you do

0:35:30.320,0:35:34.000
then you’re going to like you’re going

0:35:32.960,0:35:36.400
to ruin the camera

0:35:34.000,0:35:37.599
um i can see that you know it’s too too

0:35:36.400,0:35:41.599
much to know

0:35:37.599,0:35:45.839
tmi sure we’ll go with that anyway

0:35:41.599,0:35:45.839
so that’s that’s my rant for this show

0:35:46.240,0:35:49.599
you didn’t give me enough on star wars

0:35:48.000,0:35:51.280
to ran on star wars so i had to run on

0:35:49.599,0:35:54.000
something okay that’s fine

0:35:51.280,0:35:55.119
um what do we got next so we have the

0:35:54.000,0:35:58.240
best and the worst

0:35:55.119,0:36:01.680
of the 2020 emmys tell us about that

0:35:58.240,0:36:05.040
um so obviously with the pandemic going

0:36:01.680,0:36:06.240
on a packed red carpet wasn’t going to

0:36:05.040,0:36:09.040
be happen

0:36:06.240,0:36:09.599
so no one really knew what to expect for

0:36:09.040,0:36:12.960
the

0:36:09.599,0:36:14.880
72nd primetime emmy awards uh what they

0:36:12.960,0:36:17.440
were actually going to look like

0:36:14.880,0:36:19.359
but it basically was a reflection of

0:36:17.440,0:36:21.760
what the past six months are

0:36:19.359,0:36:22.720
people sequestered at their homes

0:36:21.760,0:36:24.960
interacting

0:36:22.720,0:36:26.560
awkwardly over glitchy broadband

0:36:24.960,0:36:30.400
connections

0:36:26.560,0:36:33.119
and you know it was it was interesting i

0:36:30.400,0:36:34.800
i didn’t watch the whole thing i i

0:36:33.119,0:36:37.920
watched it here and there

0:36:34.800,0:36:38.800
um and it was interesting because some

0:36:37.920,0:36:42.160
of the

0:36:38.800,0:36:44.720
uh people that were up for awards were

0:36:42.160,0:36:46.880
dressed all in in ball gowns and looked

0:36:44.720,0:36:49.359
glamorous and others were just like

0:36:46.880,0:36:50.640
sitting in their living room in t-shirts

0:36:49.359,0:36:53.359
and and jeans

0:36:50.640,0:36:54.560
um you know so it was it was kind of

0:36:53.359,0:36:57.040
interesting

0:36:54.560,0:36:58.079
uh to see that they could kind of pull

0:36:57.040,0:37:00.320
this off

0:36:58.079,0:37:01.520
um what was funny was they kind of

0:37:00.320,0:37:04.640
started out

0:37:01.520,0:37:06.560
uh the show with you know jimmy kimmel

0:37:04.640,0:37:07.680
doing this whole monologue thing and

0:37:06.560,0:37:10.240
then they would

0:37:07.680,0:37:10.720
you know show the audience and you saw

0:37:10.240,0:37:13.680
like

0:37:10.720,0:37:15.040
a full audience there and then you know

0:37:13.680,0:37:16.640
kind of halfway through it

0:37:15.040,0:37:18.560
they’re going through something and you

0:37:16.640,0:37:19.520
see jimmy kimmel’s actually in the

0:37:18.560,0:37:23.040
audience and

0:37:19.520,0:37:24.880
obviously you you realize that

0:37:23.040,0:37:27.520
any shot that they were showing of the

0:37:24.880,0:37:31.040
audience was pre-record you know it was

0:37:27.520,0:37:33.280
you know previous years um uh

0:37:31.040,0:37:35.200
from various different award shows that

0:37:33.280,0:37:36.480
they were you know pulling together and

0:37:35.200,0:37:37.839
as it turned out

0:37:36.480,0:37:40.960
you know they were basically in the

0:37:37.839,0:37:42.880
staples center with not that many people

0:37:40.960,0:37:45.280
around they had a big setup with all

0:37:42.880,0:37:47.760
these monitors so that whenever

0:37:45.280,0:37:49.520
uh they needed to go to live shots you

0:37:47.760,0:37:51.920
know you basically saw

0:37:49.520,0:37:54.160
you know everything on on the big screen

0:37:51.920,0:37:57.440
uh they did have a couple of people that

0:37:54.160,0:37:59.920
went uh that were with him

0:37:57.440,0:38:01.599
uh staying six feet apart doing you know

0:37:59.920,0:38:04.320
the little banter and

0:38:01.599,0:38:07.359
you know in some cases things did fall

0:38:04.320,0:38:10.160
flat because you didn’t get that

0:38:07.359,0:38:10.720
reaction from an audience but i think

0:38:10.160,0:38:14.240
that’s

0:38:10.720,0:38:15.359
kind of the the problem most live shows

0:38:14.240,0:38:16.880
or are having

0:38:15.359,0:38:18.240
that would normally have a studio

0:38:16.880,0:38:19.119
audience you’re not getting that

0:38:18.240,0:38:22.240
reaction

0:38:19.119,0:38:22.800
when you say something uh you know funny

0:38:22.240,0:38:25.520
or

0:38:22.800,0:38:26.320
that you’re looking to get a reaction um

0:38:25.520,0:38:29.119
but it was

0:38:26.320,0:38:29.839
you know i think for what it was it was

0:38:29.119,0:38:32.960
done

0:38:29.839,0:38:34.960
you know it was done well um you know

0:38:32.960,0:38:38.800
people are looking for

0:38:34.960,0:38:41.599
a little bit of normalcy um so those

0:38:38.800,0:38:42.640
that you know are interested in award

0:38:41.599,0:38:46.000
shows

0:38:42.640,0:38:48.720
um you know this this didn’t disappoint

0:38:46.000,0:38:49.440
um uh some of the the highlights

0:38:48.720,0:38:53.040
obviously

0:38:49.440,0:38:55.599
were that um in

0:38:53.040,0:38:56.079
um they actually had a setup in toronto

0:38:55.599,0:38:59.520
for

0:38:56.079,0:39:03.040
the whole cast and crew of shits creek

0:38:59.520,0:39:06.079
which swept every comedy

0:39:03.040,0:39:08.640
uh award for writing acting directing

0:39:06.079,0:39:10.640
um and they were all together in in one

0:39:08.640,0:39:14.240
room so that was really kind of

0:39:10.640,0:39:16.320
sweet to to see their moments um

0:39:14.240,0:39:18.560
and then obviously just like any awards

0:39:16.320,0:39:21.040
show you know there were the political

0:39:18.560,0:39:22.400
uh issues that got brought up and the

0:39:21.040,0:39:25.520
subtle

0:39:22.400,0:39:25.920
uh statements you know that were made

0:39:25.520,0:39:29.040
which

0:39:25.920,0:39:30.640
always happens during any award show but

0:39:29.040,0:39:34.079
it was very subtle nothing

0:39:30.640,0:39:37.359
you know over the top um all in all um

0:39:34.079,0:39:38.640
you know no real surprises for

0:39:37.359,0:39:40.839
you know some of the awards

0:39:38.640,0:39:42.400
unfortunately baby yoda didn’t get any

0:39:40.839,0:39:45.119
more uh

0:39:42.400,0:39:45.680
awards they they did probably a good

0:39:45.119,0:39:47.280
thing around

0:39:45.680,0:39:49.040
pedro pascal really would accept this

0:39:47.280,0:39:52.079
yeah um but what

0:39:49.040,0:39:55.359
was kind of cool was uh zendaya

0:39:52.079,0:39:57.040
uh she actually won and she is now the

0:39:55.359,0:40:00.960
youngest person to ever

0:39:57.040,0:40:01.440
win uh an emmy she’s 24. uh she’s in a

0:40:00.960,0:40:04.560
show

0:40:01.440,0:40:07.599
uh euphoria um on hbo

0:40:04.560,0:40:09.119
um and so here you have this you know

0:40:07.599,0:40:12.079
disney actress who’s

0:40:09.119,0:40:12.560
you know made it you know as a young

0:40:12.079,0:40:15.280
adult

0:40:12.560,0:40:16.160
so that was kind of one of the the

0:40:15.280,0:40:19.040
highlights of

0:40:16.160,0:40:19.599
of everything um and then you know you

0:40:19.040,0:40:22.640
had

0:40:19.599,0:40:24.160
shows like the watchmen which it was one

0:40:22.640,0:40:27.119
of the first shows

0:40:24.160,0:40:28.800
um you know based off of a comic book

0:40:27.119,0:40:31.839
you know to win big

0:40:28.800,0:40:32.319
so that was kind of uh historic uh as

0:40:31.839,0:40:35.280
well

0:40:32.319,0:40:35.920
so all in all you know it was a a

0:40:35.280,0:40:39.200
different

0:40:35.920,0:40:41.839
type of award show but very similar

0:40:39.200,0:40:43.440
you know in in some respects as well i

0:40:41.839,0:40:44.240
don’t think it’s a sign of the times i

0:40:43.440,0:40:46.400
mean you

0:40:44.240,0:40:49.119
kind of have to deal with the situation

0:40:46.400,0:40:51.280
as it’s handed to you here

0:40:49.119,0:40:52.400
you make the most of it right i’ve never

0:40:51.280,0:40:54.640
been a big fan of

0:40:52.400,0:40:55.680
award shows i i think it’s kind of silly

0:40:54.640,0:40:58.240
to

0:40:55.680,0:40:59.280
take actors who are multi-million dollar

0:40:58.240,0:41:01.119
actors

0:40:59.280,0:41:02.800
and pat them on the back for doing their

0:41:01.119,0:41:05.040
job so

0:41:02.800,0:41:06.400
was never a big fan of it but you know

0:41:05.040,0:41:07.359
it’s there’s certainly a market out

0:41:06.400,0:41:09.040
there for it so

0:41:07.359,0:41:10.880
kudos to them for keeping the tradition

0:41:09.040,0:41:12.560
alive

0:41:10.880,0:41:14.640
and i think that was all we had for

0:41:12.560,0:41:20.060
entertainment news we’ll be right back

0:41:14.640,0:41:22.240

0:43:51.680,0:43:53.920
lifestyle

0:43:52.560,0:43:55.680
you know so it was it was very

0:43:53.920,0:43:58.880
interesting um the one thing that was

0:43:55.680,0:44:01.599
kind of sad was that when they had the

0:43:58.880,0:44:03.839
wildfires in 2018

0:44:01.599,0:44:04.880
this is when they were doing uh the

0:44:03.839,0:44:08.480
filming

0:44:04.880,0:44:12.400
and darren’s house actually

0:44:08.480,0:44:15.200
was uh devastated in in the fire so it

0:44:12.400,0:44:16.800
ends with him you know finally coming

0:44:15.200,0:44:20.400
home and realizing

0:44:16.800,0:44:23.920
you know he has nothing and he has to

0:44:20.400,0:44:27.200
you know rebuild and redo and

0:44:23.920,0:44:28.960
that you know we have to be better we

0:44:27.200,0:44:31.359
have to do something and of course now

0:44:28.960,0:44:35.119
we have the wildfires going on

0:44:31.359,0:44:38.560
yet again so you know hopefully

0:44:35.119,0:44:40.880
at some point someone will you know

0:44:38.560,0:44:41.839
make some changes but it was it was very

0:44:40.880,0:44:45.119

insidious issue of voter suppression in

0:45:24.000,0:45:28.079
the united states

experiences

0:45:29.280,0:45:34.880
with current activism and historical

0:45:32.480,0:45:37.119
insight to expose a problem

0:45:34.880,0:45:38.960
that has corrupted our democracy from

0:45:37.119,0:45:41.359
the very beginning

0:45:38.960,0:45:44.240
with the perspective and expertise of

0:45:41.359,0:45:47.359
stacy abrams the former minority leader

0:45:44.240,0:45:50.720
of the georgia house of representatives

0:45:47.359,0:45:53.920
the documentary offers an insider’s look

0:45:50.720,0:45:56.400
into laws and barriers that voting

0:45:53.920,0:45:58.800
to voting that most people don’t even

0:45:56.400,0:46:02.000
know are a threat to the basic rights as

0:45:58.800,0:46:04.240
citizens of the united states

0:46:02.000,0:46:06.079
this documentary and i literally just

0:46:04.240,0:46:07.520
watched i started watching it last night

0:46:06.079,0:46:09.040
and finished it this morning because i

0:46:07.520,0:46:10.480
was going through amazon

0:46:09.040,0:46:12.880
prime last night to find something

0:46:10.480,0:46:17.040
decent to watch

0:46:12.880,0:46:19.520
this caught my eye as you know sam and i

0:46:17.040,0:46:21.760
had recently done a podcast on our

0:46:19.520,0:46:24.800
insights into tomorrow show

0:46:21.760,0:46:25.599
about voter suppression and a lot of the

0:46:24.800,0:46:28.240
things that we

0:46:25.599,0:46:28.880
talked about there was touched that they

0:46:28.240,0:46:33.280
touched on

0:46:28.880,0:46:36.800
in the uh all in the fight for democracy

0:46:33.280,0:46:42.640
documentary and it really is a threat

0:46:36.800,0:46:44.880
to our way of life to our government

0:46:42.640,0:46:46.079
and we talked the documentary talks

0:46:44.880,0:46:49.280
about

0:46:46.079,0:46:51.920
very early on in the history of our

0:46:49.280,0:46:54.000
country where

0:46:51.920,0:46:56.000
our constitution talks about we the

0:46:54.000,0:47:00.319
people and we the people

0:46:56.000,0:47:03.520
really were just white land holding men

0:47:00.319,0:47:06.400
who had a right to vote it was less than

0:47:03.520,0:47:09.040
13 of the population was able to vote

0:47:06.400,0:47:12.400
when this country started

0:47:09.040,0:47:13.760
and you had a lot of people who fought

0:47:12.400,0:47:16.640
for this country

0:47:13.760,0:47:19.280
fought for the right to vote and

0:47:16.640,0:47:21.119
continue to fight

0:47:19.280,0:47:22.960
you know they they walk you through the

0:47:21.119,0:47:24.240
reconstruction period after the civil

0:47:22.960,0:47:27.359
war

0:47:24.240,0:47:30.240
when laws were passed and we had a

0:47:27.359,0:47:31.520
much higher african-american voting

0:47:30.240,0:47:36.480
population

0:47:31.520,0:47:40.160
and and candidates that were running

0:47:36.480,0:47:43.920
and that was very quickly eroded and

0:47:40.160,0:47:47.280
it didn’t come back until

0:47:43.920,0:47:50.240
the voting rights act in the 1960s

0:47:47.280,0:47:52.400
and the thing that struck me with this

0:47:50.240,0:47:55.240
documentary and with the research that

0:47:52.400,0:47:56.400
we did for our show is that it

0:47:55.240,0:47:59.280
overwhelmingly

0:47:56.400,0:48:00.559
seems to be one particular political

0:47:59.280,0:48:04.640
party

0:48:00.559,0:48:06.079
who insists on denying people the right

0:48:04.640,0:48:10.800
to vote

0:48:06.079,0:48:14.240
and of course it’s denial in the form of

0:48:10.800,0:48:18.559
a claim to want to avoid voter

0:48:14.240,0:48:22.000
fraud but it is

0:48:18.559,0:48:25.040
voter suppression nonetheless

0:48:22.000,0:48:28.000
and and politicians that don’t want

0:48:25.040,0:48:29.599
citizens to vote generally are not the

0:48:28.000,0:48:31.440
kind of politicians that you want in

0:48:29.599,0:48:34.480
office

0:48:31.440,0:48:37.680
and this was a very eye-opening

0:48:34.480,0:48:37.680
documentary for me

0:48:38.880,0:48:46.160
stacey abrams had run for the

0:48:42.079,0:48:49.520
governorship of georgia in 2018

0:48:46.160,0:48:53.200
and lost by such an

0:48:49.520,0:48:55.280
insignificant amount of votes

0:48:53.200,0:48:56.720
to the point that it was within the

0:48:55.280,0:49:00.880
margin of error

0:48:56.720,0:49:04.319
of what a vote should be

0:49:00.880,0:49:06.400
the key is she was going up against

0:49:04.319,0:49:08.319
who was at the time the secretary of

0:49:06.400,0:49:10.480
state of georgia

0:49:08.319,0:49:13.280
who happened to be the person who was in

0:49:10.480,0:49:13.280
charge of elections

0:49:13.359,0:49:19.839
and somehow it was legal for

0:49:16.960,0:49:21.839
him to compete in an election while

0:49:19.839,0:49:23.040
still holding that role and not recuse

0:49:21.839,0:49:26.160
himself of that

0:49:23.040,0:49:30.319
hmm so

0:49:26.160,0:49:33.359
it’s a very enlightening

0:49:30.319,0:49:37.280
documentary to see the

0:49:33.359,0:49:40.000
techniques and the tactics and

0:49:37.280,0:49:42.559
the brutality in some cases of what

0:49:40.000,0:49:44.640
voter suppression is

0:49:42.559,0:49:45.760
and i don’t want to turn this into a

0:49:44.640,0:49:48.800
political

0:49:45.760,0:49:50.079
show or a political manifesto or

0:49:48.800,0:49:53.760
anything

0:49:50.079,0:49:58.000
um but voting is important

0:49:53.760,0:50:02.240
absolutely um i have a employee at work

0:49:58.000,0:50:05.760
who is in his mid-30s

0:50:02.240,0:50:07.520
and has never voted and i have had

0:50:05.760,0:50:09.920
numerous discussions with him over the

0:50:07.520,0:50:12.720
years trying to convince him

0:50:09.920,0:50:14.640
of the value of the vote and he always

0:50:12.720,0:50:17.520
makes very

0:50:14.640,0:50:19.119
pointed observations as to why he

0:50:17.520,0:50:21.040
doesn’t vote because he doesn’t think

0:50:19.119,0:50:23.599
his vote counts

0:50:21.040,0:50:24.800
and that’s exactly what these

0:50:23.599,0:50:27.839
politicians who

0:50:24.800,0:50:27.839
impose voter

0:50:31.760,0:50:35.839
suppression suppression thank you these

0:50:34.240,0:50:37.359
politicians that impose voter

0:50:35.839,0:50:39.040
suppression that’s exactly what they

0:50:37.359,0:50:40.400
want you to think that your vote doesn’t

0:50:39.040,0:50:42.559
count

0:50:40.400,0:50:45.280
and unfortunately they’re winning that

0:50:42.559,0:50:48.160
battle with this particular person

0:50:45.280,0:50:50.319
but we can’t let them win that battle

0:50:48.160,0:50:51.920
you have a right to vote if you did not

0:50:50.319,0:50:53.599
have a right to vote this would not be a

0:50:51.920,0:50:55.119
democracy

0:50:53.599,0:50:57.359
and i’m not going to tell anybody who to

0:50:55.119,0:51:01.280
vote for or who not to vote for

0:50:57.359,0:51:04.720
just vote get out there register vote

0:51:01.280,0:51:06.400
be a part of the decision-making process

0:51:04.720,0:51:08.079
whoever you think deserves to be in

0:51:06.400,0:51:09.119
office vote for who you think deserves

0:51:08.079,0:51:11.839
to be in there

0:51:09.119,0:51:12.960
but don’t sit on the sidelines and this

0:51:11.839,0:51:15.359
documentary was

0:51:12.960,0:51:17.200
was something that kind of hammered that

0:51:15.359,0:51:20.000
home with me

0:51:17.200,0:51:20.960
