    • California State Officials Visit Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood Amid Reopening Consideration

      • California state officials visited the Disneyland Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood this week as Gov. Gavin Newsom mulls issuing guidelines to allow the major theme parks to reopen.
      • The news comes amid the push-and-pull between the state and theme parks, which are lobbying to reopen with new health and safety measures in place — just like their Florida counterparts, which successfully reopened over the summer.
      • “We were grateful for the opportunity to share our enhanced health and safety protocols with state officials, including representatives from GO-Biz and the California Department of Health, earlier this week. We are hopeful this brings us closer to a positive resolution on behalf of our entire industry,” a spokesman for Universal Studios told The Hollywood Reporter.
      • As for Disneyland, a company official confirmed state officials also toured the theme park. No additional specifics were offered. Disneyland had already implemented new health and safety recommendations from the Orange County Health Care Agency.
      • Newsom — who was not among the group that toured the parks — said Monday that he was sending a team to the Florida parks to gather impressions about how the popular destinations are operating amid the pandemic. He did not mention the SoCal visits at that time.
      • The battle to reopen the parks reached a boiling point last month when Disney drew a line in the sand and essentially demanded Newsom offer a path to reopening. The governor did not budge. Shortly thereafter, Disney announced it was laying off 28,000 employees (mostly from Disneyland, but also a portion from Disney World), and Disney chairman Bob Iger resigned from the state’s economic coronavirus task force. Again, Newsom seemed to shrug off the development, saying during a routine press conference he was not “surprised” Iger resigned. During that same presser, he said there was “no hurry” to reopen the parks.
      • Disney and the California Attractions & Parks Association were baffled and quickly blasted Newsom for being “unreasonable.” It was after that exchange that Newsom appeared to slightly soften, announcing staff would visit the Florida parks. Around that same time, Disney CEO Bob Chapek also criticized the state while a guest on CNBC’s Closing Bell.
      • “It seems to me that the guidelines that are set up by the state of California are more stringent than any state across the country,” said the exec. “If you look at the history of Disney and what we’ve been able to do during the reopening — rather than arbitrary standards set up without regard to actual fact — and what we’ve been able to do as a company, I think you’d come to a different decision about reopening Disneyland.
      • Thus far, there have been no known cases of COVID-19 linked to the Florida theme parks.
    • Animal Kingdom Hyenas Get the Disney Princess Treatment with Back Rubs and Bubble Baths

      • Scooter and Zawadi, a hyena pair living at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, aren’t the park’s best-smelling duo or its most graceful, but the two are still treated like princesses.
      • “They’re actually very sweet, and incredibly intelligent and not as bad as they have been made out to be,” the hyenas caretaker, Nicole, says in the exclusive sneak peek above of Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s upcoming episode.
      • The new Disney+ show, narrated by Josh Gad, goes behind the scenes of Disney’s Animal Kingdom to get viewers up close to the thousands of animals that call the park home. Scooter and Zawadi are two of the stars of the Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s newest episode, premiering Friday, Oct. 16.
      • In the clip, along with complimenting the hyenas, Nicole also shows how the animals are pampered. Keepers at Animal Kingdom regularly give Scooter and Zawadi scented bubbles baths and back rubs with back scratchers. The hyenas are also treated to meals that fit their peculiar palette, including liver smoothies and goat’s milk mixed with peanut butter. This royal treatment is a way of providing the animals with enrichment.
      • Friday’s new episode of Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom also stars Linus, a hunky new mandrill, who is introduced to the park’s all-female mandrill squad as a way stop the group’s in-fighting, and Sohni, an eight-year-old Sumatran tiger, undergoing a voluntary blood test. Animal lovers can tune in to all the new Animal Kingdom action Friday on Disney+.
    • Disney’s major reorganization is good news for anyone who loves Disney Plus
    • https://www.theverge.com/2020/10/13/21514728/disney-streaming-reorganization-plus-espn-hulu-studios-movies-network-tv-shows-pandemic?fbclid=IwAR28cNgsiCK_bx8SgGnf8ynEarCxI19onA3cT_1u1zPxkQFeCUqL3legXw0

      • Streaming was always going to be a big part of Disney’s next phase, but now it’s clear that Disney Plus is truly the company’s future.
      • Disney announced a “strategic restructuring” of its media and entertainment divisions the other day that position the company to more aggressively meet its audience where they are — at home, streaming shows and movies to their TV. Under the new organization, Kareem Daniel, an executive who oversaw consumer products, games, and publishing, is moving from that division to oversee all of Disney Plus. It may seem odd to place a non-streaming executive in charge of streaming, but the shift seems to signal that Disney wants a less traditional approach to its entertainment and media businesses, with a focus on “delivering and monetizing our great content in the most optimal way possible.”
      • The goal is to empower individual studio and network chiefs to decide where their programming should go “as opposed to somehow having it pre-determined that a movie is destined for theaters or a TV show is destined for ABC,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek told CNBC.
      • One of the biggest differences between Disney’s public strategy before and after this reorganization is the extra emphasis on producing exclusives for streaming services, especially Disney Plus. The company noted in a press release that with the new reorganization structure, three content groups will be responsible for producing and delivering content “with the primary focus being the company’s streaming services.” That potentially means that Disney could give studio and network heads even more power throughout the calendar year, letting them decide where they believe certain projects should live, whether that be on Disney Plus, theaters, or on television.
      • Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn hinted at this approach back in February. During a roundtable with The Hollywood Reporter, Horn spoke about how Studios could use Disney Plus as a zone for movies that they were proud of but were unlikely to perform as well at the box office. Smaller films like McFarland, USA ($45 million worldwide) or Queen of Katwe ($10.3 million worldwide) can potentially find a larger audience on Disney Plus, while films with huge box office potential like The Lion King, Captain Marvel, or a new Star Wars installment can get theatrical releases. As its press release pointed out, the creatives overseeing Disney’s biggest franchises “will focus on developing and producing original content for the company’s streaming services.”
      • This reorganization has been in the works for a while, Chapek told CNBC — the pandemic just accelerated it. Streaming is now one of the only major revenue sources for the company as parks remain closed and theatrical releases are pushed back. The shakeup is a public display of confidence in Disney’s new and rapidly growing business — one that even Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings found himself congratulating a few months ago.
      • Disney essentially now has two areas of revenue that it’s focused on growing: Disney Parks (a division that also includes merchandise and other non-entertainment products) and the new Media & Entertainment Distribution division. While it’s not too difficult to imagine parks rebounding in the years to come post-COVID, it’s the company’s media and entertainment sector, and specifically streaming, that represents Disney’s opportunity for immediate growth
      • The future of Disney is riding on streaming. The theatrical landscape is dire, parks in the US and other regions will remain closed for the foreseeable future, and cruises aren’t likely to be popping anytime soon. Streaming, on the other hand, is growing faster than even Disney could anticipate. Disney now has more than 100 million subscribers across its various streaming platforms, with more than 60 million of those subscribers coming from Disney Plus. Chapek called the figures “a significant milestone and a reaffirmation of our DTC (direct-to-consumer) strategy, which we view as key to the future growth of our company,” on the company’s most recent quarterly earnings call.
      • Disney’s biggest investors and analysts agree. Dan Loeb, an activist investor whose Third Point Capital is one of Disney’s largest shareholders, even asked Chapek to end Disney’s annual $3 billion dividend in an effort to direct more capital to creating Disney Plus content. It’s an unusual move for an activist investor to ask a company to not pay out money they’re entitled to, according to CNBC, but Loeb noted that “by reallocating a dividend of a few dollars per share, Disney could more than double its Disney+ original content budget.”
      • “Disney has already proven that Disney+ is a big enough lifeboat to help the company reach the other side of this media landscape upheaval in a strong position,” Michael Nathanson, senior analyst at MoffettNathanson, wrote in a note this morning.
      • Last week, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos told Variety that while he was excited by new competitive entrants like Disney Plus, he believes “everyone’s level of commitment still needs to be defined” adding that “there’s a still a thing called Disney Plus” that’s separate from Disney as a whole. That may have been true in the months before the pandemic, but with the new public reorganization and comments from Chapek, it’s clear that Disney as a whole is very, very much Disney Plus.

    • Star Wars: The Mandalorian Star Pedro Pascal Reveals He Was Actually On Set More Often for Season 2 Filming
    • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/star-wars-the-mandalorian-star-pedro-pascal-reveals-he-was-on-set-more/
    • https://bit.ly/3m9bCzp 
      • Star Wars fans are mere weeks away from finally getting to see the season two premiere of Star Wars: The Mandalorian. A new TV spot with new footage was released this week and plenty of exciting casting rumors has us all eager to see what’s next for Mando and Baby Yoda. Mando, of course, is played by Pedro Pascal on the series. However, Brendan Wayne and Lateef Crowder are also often stepping into the role to double for Pascal and do stunts. Considering Mando always wears a helmet, it’s definitely easier to sneak in other performers. In a recent interview with Variety, Pascal confirmed that he was actually on set more for the second season.
      • “For Season 2, Pascal says he was on the set far more, though he still sat out many of Mando’s stunts,” Variety revealed. The site points out that “some actors would have walked away” from a role that was so constricting, citing how odd it would have been if Robert Downey Jr. only portrayed Iron Man while wearing the suit.
      • “If there were more than just a couple of pages of a one-on-one scene, I did feel uneasy about not, in some instances, being able to totally author that,” Pascal explained about playing the role. “But it was so easy in such a sort of practical and unexciting way for it to be up to them. When you’re dealing with a franchise as large as this, you are such a passenger to however they’re going to carve it out. It’s just so specific. It’s ‘Star Wars.'”
      • Last month, Star Wars: The Mandalorian had a successful run at the Emmy Awards, winning seven out of the 15 awards it was nominated for. 
  • Mark Hamill said ‘Star Wars’ creator George Lucas never lived down how bad the ‘Holiday Special’ was
  • https://www.insider.com/mark-hamill-knew-star-wars-holiday-special-was-terrible
  • https://bit.ly/2T5AYSc 
    • Even Mark Hamill knows the “Star Wars Holiday Special” was bad. 
    • “The ‘Star Wars Holiday Special’ is so notorious. [Creator] George [Lucas] once asked us, ‘Please, never mention it again,'” Hamill said during a conversation with the Dean of the University of Southern California’s USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Willow Bay Tuesday evening. The virtual event was part of the school’s Amplified series.
    • The infamous 1978 special only aired once on CBS and was never released on video. It’s not even available to stream on Disney Plus.
    • It’s supposed to be about Chewbacca’s journey home to spend a Wookiee holiday with his family. Bloated with celebrity cameos and segments which make little sense, it’s quite painful to get through.
    • Hamill said he actually almost didn’t take part in the special because he knew just how bad it was. 
    • “When I read the script, I said I’m not doing this,” Hamill said.
    • What changed his mind?
    • “Star Wars” creator George Lucas and merchandising.
    • “[Lucas] had to call me and say, ‘Please, do this,'” Hamill said. “You’ve got to remember. This was the Christmas of ’78, a year and a half after [‘Star Wars: A New Hope’] came out. When he called me and he said, ‘Well, I heard you don’t want to do it,’ I said, ‘It’s terrible! It’s not ‘Star Wars.’ It’s like a Bob Hope special.”
    • “He said, ‘Well, we really need to do this for the merchandisers and keep the product alive in people’s minds. Do me a favor,'” Hamill continued. “And, of course, I’d do anything for George.”
    • Hamill called it. The special was not received well at all. Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher only show up near the very end of it in glorified TV cameos. 
    • The actor said it has always stayed with Lucas. 
    • “He’s never lived it down. He once said, ‘If I could find every copy of that holiday special, I’d smash them with a hammer,'” Hamill said.
    • Hamill can joke about it now, and said he thinks it’s something they should lean into as a learning experience for others.
    • “I said, ‘George, we should own that because it shows that everybody’s fallible,'” Hamill continued. “Everybody makes mistakes.”
    • Hamill was asked about the special after recently comparing it and the first presidential debate. 
    • “That debate was the worst thing I’ve ever seen & I was in The Star Wars Holiday Special,” he tweeted.
    • The actor said his tweet was inspired by a similar one from screenwriter Jeremy Slater who wrote “Fantastic Four.”
    • During the nearly hour-long conversation, Hamill answered student questions and gave acting advice. He also shared his thoughts on the first presidential debate (he called it “an embarrassment”) and the importance to get out and vote.

  • https://bit.ly/2IFip5k 
    • One of the most popular modern lightsabers is coming to our galaxy — thanks to you.
    • Following a challenge on the Disney Parks Blog, the Jedi weapon of Cal Kestis — Padawan survivor of Order 66 and starring hero of 2019’s critically acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order video game — will make its way to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge later next year. Cal’s will be the first lightsaber offered at Dok’s to have originated from a video game, and joins other iconic legacy lightsabers including Luke Skywalker, Rey, Darth Vader, and more, in the collection.
    • In addition, even more memorable legacy lightsabers will join Dok Ondar’s collection: Ahsoka Tano’s hilts and blades from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Count Dooku’s Sith weapon, featuring its signature elegant curved handle design along with its flourishing blade-emitter guard, will come to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge this fall.

    • https://bit.ly/2FDwqiP 
      • Long time friends and co-stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck appeared in a new video for an Omaze campaign where a lucky winner will be flown to Los Angeles and get to hang out with the Oscar winners (once its safe, what with the pandemic). In the video though, Affleck and Damon trade barbs with the former encouraging the later to spice up his sell for their campaign, but eventually things get a little ugly. Affleck asks Damon to say things like “Come see Jason Bourne and Batman,” which sees Damon reply with a deadpan tone: “Robert Pattinson’s coming?” He follows it up by adding “Pattinson took your job.” Watch the whole video for yourself below and check out the Omaze campaign, benefiting Eastern Congo Initiative & Water.org here.
      • Though production on the Pattinson starring The Batman is ongoing (new set photos arrived this week with almost the full cast), Affleck will still wear the cowl in a way as new footage of his appearance as Batman will appear in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The four hour long director’s cut of the film is scheduled to arrive on HBO Max some time next year, even the first trailer for the project revealed previously unseen footage.
      • Pattinson previously tested positive for COVID-19, putting production on the Matt Reeves movie in hiatus once again following his diagnosis. Cameras are rolling though and everyone is eager to see more of the movie, even former Batman director and Pattinson collaborator, Christopher Nolan.
      • “Having worked with Rob, I can say with total confidence that he can do absolutely anything he sets his mind to,” Nolan shared with Entertainment Tonight. “And I could not be more excited to see what he does with Batman.”
      • Nolan added, “One of the first things I learned when we went to talk to the DC guys before Batman Begins is the character of Batman thrives on reinterpretation. Each generation creates its own version. That’s what keeps the legend so sort of fresh in a way.”
      • We’ll have to wait a little longer to see Pattinson in action though as Warner Bros. Pictures has delayed the movie once again. The Batman’s release date is now scheduled for March 4, 2022.
    • Here’s where Adam Sandler is hanging out while he films a movie in Philly

    • https://bit.ly/347m9Vl 
      • Adam Sandler has been seen around Philadelphia the past weeks filming his new Netflix movie Hustle, the first major production in the city since the coronavirus pandemic took hold.
      • Sandler has filmed scenes along Market Street with Minnesota Timberwolves forward Juancho Hernangómez, but has also been spotted in and around Philadelphia shopping and eating at local restaurants.
      • In Hustle, Sandler plays a basketball scout who has been unjustly fired from his position, according to Variety. Sandler’s character discovers a “once-in-a-lifetime” player abroad and brings him to the United States in the hopes of training him for the NBA. LeBron James is producing, while Philadelphia-native Jeremiah Zagar, who is known for the 2018 coming-of-age film We the Animals, directs. Zagar’s father is Isaiah Zagar, a mosaic mural artist known for work in the city’s Magic Gardens.
      • Since Sandler has been in Philly, he’s purchased two guitars from Fishtown’s Dipinto Guitar, a family-owned music store known for custom, used and vintage guitars and basses. According to a post on the store’s Instagram, Sandler bought an acoustic guitar for a recording he needed to make that night, as well as one of the shop’s custom electric guitars.
      • The actor was also seen at several eateries around Philadelphia, including Handel’s ice cream shop in Berwyn, Italian restaurant Savona in Gulph Mills, as well as Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philadelphia.
      • During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last month, Sandler said Hustle would feature multiple cameos by NBA players, including Philly-native and Toronto Raptors player Kyle Lowry. But Hustle is not Sandler’s first film with a strong NBA presence. Uncut Gems starred former NBA player Kevin Garnett, Sandler’s most recent film, Netflix comedy Hubie Halloween features Shaquille O’Neal.
      • According to the Greater Philadelphia Film Office website, Hustle will shoot until December. A Netflix premiere date for the movie has yet to be released.

      • https://bit.ly/2FCkTAa 
        • ‘Soulmates’ paints a future where science can identify your perfect match
        • “Soulmates” is an especially savvy concept, and among the best anthology series to come along in a while amid a flurry of mostly mediocre ones. At its core is the idea of better living through science — what would you do if there was a test to identify your soulmate? — and the consequences, often unintended, such a prospect could yield.
        • Set in the near future, the development of “the test” instantly raises a host of questions, explored over the course of the six-episode run: What if you were with someone when such a test became available, and they’re not your ideal match? What if your soulmate exposes a side of you that you didn’t recognize, or fully understand? What if your soulmate dies?
        • Created by Will Bridges — whose credits include “Black Mirror” and “Stranger Things” — and actor-writer Brett Goldstein (“Ted Lasso”), the series is especially effective in varying its tone from episode to episode, ranging from straight romantic drama to a more comedic excursion to Mexico to an hour with tinges of horror.
        • The premiere nicely lays out the format, with “Succession’s” Sarah Snook enjoying a seemingly idyllic life with her husband (Kingsley Ben-Adir), only to have that unsettled by seeing the impact of the test, marketed by a company called Soul Connex, on those around her. Even happiness might not be enough when the prospect of a scientifically ordained “soulmate” is possible.
        • At its core “Soulmates” explores some extremely profound issues, beginning with the notion of ceding our independence and free will over to technological or scientific solutions. It’s not that great a leap, after all, from “the test” to an existing dating/romance ecosystem that already promises computer-blessed matches, only here the concept is put on steroids.
        • The producers have assembled an excellent roster of actors, with subsequent episodes featuring a pair with “Breaking Bad” pedigrees — Betsy Brandt and David Costabile — as well as Charlie Heaton, Malin Akerman and Bill Skarsgard.
        • The show also looks better, generally, compared to the recent wave of anthologies — that is, programs featuring self-contained episodes built around specific theme — including Hulu’s uninspired “Monsterland” and Amazon’s “Modern Love” and “The Romanoffs,” with Netflix’s “Social Distance” to premiere later this month. Apple TV+’s “Little America” would be another welcome exception.
        • “Soulmates” has already been picked up for a second season in advance of its debut, which can sometimes be written off as irrational exuberance on a network’s part. In this case, though, the six-episode run makes clear that the format offers a vast array of storytelling possibilities, built around the tantalizing promise of better dating through science, with all the cautionary warnings that entails.
        • “Soulmates” premieres Oct. 5 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.

At the height of the Cold War, newly formed NASA selects seven of the military’s best test pilots to become astronauts. Competing to be the first in space, these men achieve the extraordinary, inspiring the world to turn towards a new horizon of ambition and hope.
      • Based on the iconic bestseller by Tom Wolfe, The Right Stuff is an inspirational look at the early days of the U.S. Space Program and the incredible story of America’s first astronauts, the Mercury Seven.
      • At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race, and America fears it is a nation in decline.
      • Newly-formed NASA has the monumental task of sending a man into space, and its engineers estimate they need decades to accomplish the feat.
      • They are given two years. Dubbed Project Mercury, the program recruits and trains just seven astronauts from a handful of the military’s best pilots.
      • Within days of being presented to the world, the Mercury Seven become instant celebrities, forged into heroes before they achieve a single heroic act.
      • At a time when many wondered if America’s glory days were behind it, The Right Stuff is an aspirational story about how ordinary human beings can achieve the extraordinary. 
      • As much about who we are today as it is about historic achievements, the series evokes the wonder of this singular era, when the free world looked towards a new horizon of hope as we first stepped off the bounds of our only home to venture into the vast unknown.

0:04:00.640,0:04:07.040
go for disney detective so

0:04:03.840,0:04:10.080
a bunch of people from uh california

0:04:07.040,0:04:12.879
state officials actually made a trip

0:04:10.080,0:04:13.360
uh to kind of figure out how things are

0:04:12.879,0:04:16.320
going

0:04:13.360,0:04:17.600
in florida to kind of get an idea about

0:04:16.320,0:04:21.120
what they can do

0:04:17.600,0:04:24.080
obviously in in california um

0:04:21.120,0:04:25.120
so you know in a statement they said um

0:04:24.080,0:04:26.880
you know we’re grateful

0:04:25.120,0:04:29.520
for the opportunity to share our

0:04:26.880,0:04:31.680
enhanced health and safety protocols

0:04:29.520,0:04:33.040
with state officials including

0:04:31.680,0:04:35.440
representatives from

0:04:33.040,0:04:37.680
gobiz and the california department of

0:04:35.440,0:04:38.960
health earlier this week we hope this

0:04:37.680,0:04:41.360
brings us closer

0:04:38.960,0:04:42.160
to a positive resolution on behalf of

0:04:41.360,0:04:45.040
the entire

0:04:42.160,0:04:46.960
industry obviously we know all of the

0:04:45.040,0:04:50.160
theme parks in california

0:04:46.960,0:04:52.320
still remain closed and

0:04:50.160,0:04:54.800
you know they’re they’re trying to

0:04:52.320,0:04:56.960
obviously you know come together

0:04:54.800,0:04:59.680
you know with all of this and then of

0:04:56.960,0:05:03.280
course unfortunately the news that

0:04:59.680,0:05:05.520
came out not that long uh

0:05:03.280,0:05:06.400
uh just a couple of weeks ago was that

0:05:05.520,0:05:09.440
you know more

0:05:06.400,0:05:10.720
employees from the disney parks were

0:05:09.440,0:05:13.840
going to be

0:05:10.720,0:05:15.840
were let go um also

0:05:13.840,0:05:17.039
not only in california but also in

0:05:15.840,0:05:19.520
florida because

0:05:17.039,0:05:20.720
they’re obviously not open to you know a

0:05:19.520,0:05:24.240
hundred percent

0:05:20.720,0:05:25.440
you know capacity so you know it’s kind

0:05:24.240,0:05:28.240
of

0:05:25.440,0:05:28.800
going in in the right direction i guess

0:05:28.240,0:05:30.800
um

0:05:28.800,0:05:32.320
you know but the other thing too is that

0:05:30.800,0:05:35.120
you know no

0:05:32.320,0:05:36.960
known cases of covid19 have been linked

0:05:35.120,0:05:39.440
to any of the florida park so

0:05:36.960,0:05:41.520
obviously everything that they’re doing

0:05:39.440,0:05:44.479
all the safety measures

0:05:41.520,0:05:46.240
are working so hopefully you know this

0:05:44.479,0:05:49.360
could be some good news

0:05:46.240,0:05:51.120
you know again still no dates

0:05:49.360,0:05:53.600
you know at this point you know we’re

0:05:51.120,0:05:55.520
what the middle of october

0:05:53.600,0:05:57.199
i’m not thinking the the parks are

0:05:55.520,0:05:59.280
probably going to open until

0:05:57.199,0:06:00.800
you know january at this point i’m

0:05:59.280,0:06:02.639
thinking they’re not even going to

0:06:00.800,0:06:04.720
be you know but i don’t know because

0:06:02.639,0:06:07.919
they you know they have been

0:06:04.720,0:06:12.720
showing pictures you know from what

0:06:07.919,0:06:16.319
people can see that go to disney springs

0:06:12.720,0:06:19.759
in in california that they have safety

0:06:16.319,0:06:21.840
you know plexiglas up in in various

0:06:19.759,0:06:22.800
you know so the the park looks like it’s

0:06:21.840,0:06:25.520
ready

0:06:22.800,0:06:27.759
uh to open i just don’t know how quickly

0:06:25.520,0:06:28.080
they’d be able to to turn around uh you

0:06:27.759,0:06:31.199
know

0:06:28.080,0:06:33.440
and open up right off the bat so so i’m

0:06:31.199,0:06:34.160
curious what actually spawned the trip

0:06:33.440,0:06:37.039
was this

0:06:34.160,0:06:39.120
a fact-finding trip from the officials

0:06:37.039,0:06:40.800
in california or was this an invitation

0:06:39.120,0:06:42.479
from the parks i’m not sure because

0:06:40.800,0:06:46.240
there were a couple of different

0:06:42.479,0:06:47.919
um you know uh um invitati a

0:06:46.240,0:06:49.360
couple of different articles that that

0:06:47.919,0:06:51.759
talked about them

0:06:49.360,0:06:53.280
coming to to see so it might have been

0:06:51.759,0:06:55.039
like a fact finding

0:06:53.280,0:06:56.639
like hey let’s see what they’re doing

0:06:55.039,0:06:59.280
and see

0:06:56.639,0:07:00.960
you know how it’s going but obviously

0:06:59.280,0:07:02.479
the governor of california is taking

0:07:00.960,0:07:05.520
things very seriously

0:07:02.479,0:07:06.160
and you know doesn’t want to just open

0:07:05.520,0:07:09.120
things up

0:07:06.160,0:07:11.520
just for the sake of opening them up so

0:07:09.120,0:07:13.280
that’s probably the smart thing to do

0:07:11.520,0:07:15.440
tell us about the hyenas getting the

0:07:13.280,0:07:17.199
disney princess treatment so this was

0:07:15.440,0:07:19.840
actually going to be one of my

0:07:17.199,0:07:21.759
insightful pics you know at some point

0:07:19.840,0:07:24.240
but this was a cute little article that

0:07:21.759,0:07:27.840
came out so there’s a cute show

0:07:24.240,0:07:31.199
um little documentary on disney plus

0:07:27.840,0:07:34.800
it’s narrated by josh gad and they

0:07:31.199,0:07:34.800
do behind the scenes

0:07:34.880,0:07:39.919
stories about disney’s animal kingdom

0:07:37.919,0:07:41.599
so if it’s something where you’ve gone

0:07:39.919,0:07:42.479
to the park and you’ve seen some of the

0:07:41.599,0:07:44.879
animals

0:07:42.479,0:07:45.759
you don’t really understand how much

0:07:44.879,0:07:48.960
work

0:07:45.759,0:07:49.680
is involved with these animals and and

0:07:48.960,0:07:53.199
the show

0:07:49.680,0:07:56.080
really gives you that you know

0:07:53.199,0:07:57.120
a better appreciation actually for the

0:07:56.080,0:08:00.080
park i know

0:07:57.120,0:08:01.039
you know a lot of people it’s like their

0:08:00.080,0:08:04.080
favorite park

0:08:01.039,0:08:07.520
i know for us it’s our least favorite

0:08:04.080,0:08:10.720
park um but after watching this

0:08:07.520,0:08:11.440
documentary it kind of makes me want to

0:08:10.720,0:08:14.960
go

0:08:11.440,0:08:16.960
and visit the park now you get to

0:08:14.960,0:08:18.560
know about the the different zookeepers

0:08:16.960,0:08:22.720
and the different animals

0:08:18.560,0:08:23.680
and all uh that goes into taking care of

0:08:22.720,0:08:25.759
the animals

0:08:23.680,0:08:27.360
so in this episode that that’s in this

0:08:25.759,0:08:30.319
article it talks about how

0:08:27.360,0:08:30.800
the hyenas get like a bubble bath and

0:08:30.319,0:08:34.399
they

0:08:30.800,0:08:36.080
can get like this princess treatment and

0:08:34.399,0:08:38.399
um you know kind of get like a little

0:08:36.080,0:08:41.519
makeover and and whatnot

0:08:38.399,0:08:44.720
um maddie and i actually watch uh

0:08:41.519,0:08:46.240
watch the show it comes out every friday

0:08:44.720,0:08:48.000
disney obviously doesn’t drop all of

0:08:46.240,0:08:50.880
their episodes all at once so every

0:08:48.000,0:08:54.000
friday a new episode comes up

0:08:50.880,0:08:57.360
last week the episode they had

0:08:54.000,0:08:59.279
a baby zebra that was born and

0:08:57.360,0:09:00.880
you know it was the you know one of the

0:08:59.279,0:09:03.680
first baby zebras

0:09:00.880,0:09:04.800
you know born to the park in in so many

0:09:03.680,0:09:07.600
years and

0:09:04.800,0:09:08.080
um you know so they have all these

0:09:07.600,0:09:10.560
different

0:09:08.080,0:09:12.160
tidbits about you know different animals

0:09:10.560,0:09:13.120
and certain animals that you don’t even

0:09:12.160,0:09:15.200
know about

0:09:13.120,0:09:17.120
that are there and and what it takes to

0:09:15.200,0:09:17.839
you know take care of them uh the one

0:09:17.120,0:09:21.519
episode

0:09:17.839,0:09:24.320
there was a man a manatee and he had

0:09:21.519,0:09:25.360
an infection on his his flipper because

0:09:24.320,0:09:28.080
he had actually been

0:09:25.360,0:09:30.000
injured and that’s how he actually came

0:09:28.080,0:09:30.640
um he’s not an animal kingdom he’s

0:09:30.000,0:09:33.760
actually an

0:09:30.640,0:09:34.320
epcot at the living seas and they had to

0:09:33.760,0:09:37.519
take him

0:09:34.320,0:09:40.480
over to animal kingdom to get an mri

0:09:37.519,0:09:41.680
and just the the amount of effort it

0:09:40.480,0:09:44.000
took to get him

0:09:41.680,0:09:45.279
because you can’t just like wheel him

0:09:44.000,0:09:46.959
out the front door

0:09:45.279,0:09:48.399
they actually had to take him from the

0:09:46.959,0:09:51.120
roof

0:09:48.399,0:09:52.399
and a big giant crane to get this you

0:09:51.120,0:09:55.519
know

0:09:52.399,0:09:57.839
big giant manatee on a truck

0:09:55.519,0:09:58.560
over to animal kingdom and then he was

0:09:57.839,0:10:02.079
too big

0:09:58.560,0:10:04.079
and too heavy for the table

0:10:02.079,0:10:05.120
so they had to do all these other things

0:10:04.079,0:10:08.000
to to get

0:10:05.120,0:10:09.040
you know his x-rays done fortunately

0:10:08.000,0:10:11.920
everything was okay

0:10:09.040,0:10:12.320
no issues and you know and then of

0:10:11.920,0:10:14.880
course

0:10:12.320,0:10:16.160
bringing him back bringing him back you

0:10:14.880,0:10:18.640
know through the roof and everything

0:10:16.160,0:10:19.680
so it really gives you an appreciation

0:10:18.640,0:10:21.600
for

0:10:19.680,0:10:23.360
you know all the work that they do there

0:10:21.600,0:10:25.040
and obviously with the park

0:10:23.360,0:10:26.480
you know when the park was closed the

0:10:25.040,0:10:29.519
animals were still there

0:10:26.480,0:10:32.640
the animals still needed you know to be

0:10:29.519,0:10:33.920
tended to so it’s a it’s a nice uh you

0:10:32.640,0:10:37.040
know family show to

0:10:33.920,0:10:40.240
to watch um you know to

0:10:37.040,0:10:41.600
to see a different side of disney yeah

0:10:40.240,0:10:43.519
and you know it’s kind of

0:10:41.600,0:10:45.040
kind of interesting because we don’t

0:10:43.519,0:10:46.160
when we look at the parks we look at you

0:10:45.040,0:10:48.399
know

0:10:46.160,0:10:50.800
what’s in it for us what’s fun for us

0:10:48.399,0:10:53.120
what’s going to keep us occupied right

0:10:50.800,0:10:54.240
and we’ve always found that animal

0:10:53.120,0:10:57.839
kingdom just didn’t

0:10:54.240,0:11:01.040
have all of the things to keep

0:10:57.839,0:11:02.640
us going that magic kingdom or

0:11:01.040,0:11:04.320
studios or whatever would would

0:11:02.640,0:11:06.480
typically have

0:11:04.320,0:11:07.600
but a lot of these things here it’s nice

0:11:06.480,0:11:10.240
that they’re doing these programs

0:11:07.600,0:11:12.000
because you don’t see these things right

0:11:10.240,0:11:13.680
when you’re at the park you know you

0:11:12.000,0:11:15.760
don’t see all the good that they do

0:11:13.680,0:11:17.360
all the animals that they take care of

0:11:15.760,0:11:20.800
and all the

0:11:17.360,0:11:22.640
science that they do um so

0:11:20.800,0:11:24.160
kudos to disney for actually putting the

0:11:22.640,0:11:25.200
program together to highlight some of

0:11:24.160,0:11:28.320
the efforts that yeah

0:11:25.200,0:11:31.440
what they do so let’s talk about

0:11:28.320,0:11:34.160
a major re-org at disney so

0:11:31.440,0:11:35.200
streaming has always been a big part of

0:11:34.160,0:11:37.519
disney’s next

0:11:35.200,0:11:40.320
phase but now it’s clear that disney

0:11:37.519,0:11:42.800
plus is truly the company’s future

0:11:40.320,0:11:44.880
so disney announced a strategic

0:11:42.800,0:11:47.200
restructuring of its media and

0:11:44.880,0:11:50.240
entertainment divisions the other day

0:11:47.200,0:11:52.560
that reap uh that positions the company

0:11:50.240,0:11:53.680
uh to a more aggressive to more

0:11:52.560,0:11:56.800
aggressively meet

0:11:53.680,0:11:57.600
its audience where they are which is at

0:11:56.800,0:12:01.519
home

0:11:57.600,0:12:04.240
using the streaming services and dealing

0:12:01.519,0:12:05.680
with movies and also uh the different

0:12:04.240,0:12:08.720
television shows

0:12:05.680,0:12:10.560
so this was news that that came out like

0:12:08.720,0:12:12.639
i said earlier this week

0:12:10.560,0:12:14.320
and basically talking about a whole

0:12:12.639,0:12:17.600
restructuring of where

0:12:14.320,0:12:19.600
things are and um you know the ceo

0:12:17.600,0:12:22.240
basically said the goal is to empower

0:12:19.600,0:12:26.079
the individual studio and network chiefs

0:12:22.240,0:12:28.000
to decide um where their programming

0:12:26.079,0:12:30.160
should go as opposed to having it

0:12:28.000,0:12:30.639
predetermined that a movie is destined

0:12:30.160,0:12:33.120
to it

0:12:30.639,0:12:35.120
to go to theater and that a tv show

0:12:33.120,0:12:37.360
should go to abc

0:12:35.120,0:12:38.800
now they’re they’re putting obviously a

0:12:37.360,0:12:42.240
lot more emphasis

0:12:38.800,0:12:44.959
on this the streaming aspect of it um

0:12:42.240,0:12:46.079
you know we talked yes uh not yesterday

0:12:44.959,0:12:48.560
last week about

0:12:46.079,0:12:51.040
the new pixar movie that was supposed to

0:12:48.560,0:12:54.320
come out in theaters now going

0:12:51.040,0:12:57.279
to be uh streamed on

0:12:54.320,0:12:58.240
on disney plus um you know so they’re

0:12:57.279,0:12:59.360
they’re putting

0:12:58.240,0:13:01.519
you know they’re they’re kind of

0:12:59.360,0:13:03.600
readjusting things because again

0:13:01.519,0:13:06.639
the majority of people are home not that

0:13:03.600,0:13:10.079
many people feel comfortable going

0:13:06.639,0:13:12.560
you know to the theater now so they’re

0:13:10.079,0:13:13.120
kind of realizing you know where they

0:13:12.560,0:13:14.800
can make

0:13:13.120,0:13:16.959
where they’re making money right now and

0:13:14.800,0:13:19.760
obviously streaming is

0:13:16.959,0:13:20.079
um you know where a lot of it is coming

0:13:19.760,0:13:22.240
from

0:13:20.079,0:13:23.760
now because again not many people are

0:13:22.240,0:13:26.560
going to the parks even though

0:13:23.760,0:13:28.120
some of the parks are open so kind of

0:13:26.560,0:13:31.360
reorganizing

0:13:28.120,0:13:33.360
re-energizing um you know everything and

0:13:31.360,0:13:34.880
and you know we’ll see how it goes

0:13:33.360,0:13:38.240
because obviously it’s

0:13:34.880,0:13:40.240
it’s going better than they thought

0:13:38.240,0:13:41.519
that was one of the things we talked

0:13:40.240,0:13:43.600
about um

0:13:41.519,0:13:45.519
you know the the amount of subscribers

0:13:43.600,0:13:48.320
that they have

0:13:45.519,0:13:50.000
you know they’ve you know got to a point

0:13:48.320,0:13:51.040
where they thought they’d be in a couple

0:13:50.000,0:13:54.320
of years

0:13:51.040,0:13:57.040
already now and again probably because

0:13:54.320,0:13:57.440
of the pandemic and everybody’s home hey

0:13:57.040,0:14:00.720
let’s

0:13:57.440,0:14:02.000
you know put you know more you know more

0:14:00.720,0:14:05.360
into it the other thing too

0:14:02.000,0:14:05.680
is um what the article talked about is

0:14:05.360,0:14:08.079
that

0:14:05.680,0:14:09.040
also disney plus gives them a good

0:14:08.079,0:14:11.920
platform

0:14:09.040,0:14:13.279
for movies that would normally go out

0:14:11.920,0:14:15.120
into the theaters

0:14:13.279,0:14:16.959
and probably wouldn’t have a very good

0:14:15.120,0:14:19.199
run but are

0:14:16.959,0:14:21.040
good movies it’s just they’re not the

0:14:19.199,0:14:22.880
commercial success

0:14:21.040,0:14:25.279
you know that you’d have for you know a

0:14:22.880,0:14:28.800
marvel movie but that with disney plus

0:14:25.279,0:14:32.000
they’ll actually probably get more views

0:14:28.800,0:14:34.480
for these movies than if they um

0:14:32.000,0:14:35.519
you know went a regular theatrical

0:14:34.480,0:14:37.760
release for it

0:14:35.519,0:14:39.279
so well and you know disney is the

0:14:37.760,0:14:41.680
probably the single one

0:14:39.279,0:14:43.839
organization out there that i would

0:14:41.680,0:14:44.800
expect to be the first and the smartest

0:14:43.839,0:14:46.460
to make this

0:14:44.800,0:14:47.920
type of decision

0:14:46.460,0:14:50.880
[Music]

0:14:47.920,0:14:52.240
from a media standpoint they really have

0:14:50.880,0:14:54.480
their finger on the pulse

0:14:52.240,0:14:55.440
of their audience they know what their

0:14:54.480,0:14:57.040
audience wants

0:14:55.440,0:14:59.120
they know how best to deliver to their

0:14:57.040,0:15:00.480
audience and they’re smart enough to

0:14:59.120,0:15:04.399
make these management

0:15:00.480,0:15:07.360
changes here to give their

0:15:04.399,0:15:08.880
media personnel the ability to make

0:15:07.360,0:15:10.560
those decisions and streamline the

0:15:08.880,0:15:13.199
process

0:15:10.560,0:15:15.519
they’ve done i think an outstanding job

0:15:13.199,0:15:17.360
since the launch of disney plus

0:15:15.519,0:15:19.199
look you know a couple a couple hiccups

0:15:17.360,0:15:19.839
when it first launched with capacity

0:15:19.199,0:15:22.160
right

0:15:19.839,0:15:24.399
um but i think that was mainly because

0:15:22.160,0:15:25.680
they did not anticipate being as

0:15:24.399,0:15:28.720
successful as they were

0:15:25.680,0:15:29.839
right i don’t think anyone did right but

0:15:28.720,0:15:31.519
they adjusted to that

0:15:29.839,0:15:32.880
they got everything straightened out and

0:15:31.519,0:15:35.680
now they’re

0:15:32.880,0:15:37.680
flooding their streaming service with

0:15:35.680,0:15:40.880
new content when you see other

0:15:37.680,0:15:41.600
providers like apple plus right you know

0:15:40.880,0:15:43.600
they

0:15:41.600,0:15:45.120
i just got a notification that my apple

0:15:43.600,0:15:45.920
plus subscription was extended to

0:15:45.120,0:15:48.320
february

0:15:45.920,0:15:49.440
oh goody that’s great but you still got

0:15:48.320,0:15:52.480
nothing forward

0:15:49.440,0:15:53.120
for me to watch so right it doesn’t do

0:15:52.480,0:15:54.480
me any good

0:15:53.120,0:15:57.680
right and that’s the thing is because

0:15:54.480,0:16:00.800
obviously we know we’re

0:15:57.680,0:16:04.720
big cons you know uh consumers

0:16:00.800,0:16:07.279
of disney plus you know besides the

0:16:04.720,0:16:09.120
you know uh the star wars stuff and the

0:16:07.279,0:16:11.760
mandalorian stuff

0:16:09.120,0:16:12.880
um you know maddie and i

0:16:11.760,0:16:14.800
[Music]

0:16:12.880,0:16:16.399
you know four times a week five times a

0:16:14.800,0:16:18.320
week we’re watching something from

0:16:16.399,0:16:20.160
disneyland my insightful pick this week

0:16:18.320,0:16:20.480
is from disney plus and it’s not star

0:16:20.160,0:16:23.360
wars

0:16:20.480,0:16:25.199
right um you know maddie and i went

0:16:23.360,0:16:25.759
through pretty much every disney movie

0:16:25.199,0:16:27.839
we went

0:16:25.759,0:16:30.160
in you know first we started watching

0:16:27.839,0:16:32.639
you know just pixar and then whatever

0:16:30.160,0:16:33.279
and then we actually went in um age

0:16:32.639,0:16:34.959
order

0:16:33.279,0:16:36.880
so that was a nice little feature you

0:16:34.959,0:16:38.720
could you know they had the movies

0:16:36.880,0:16:41.120
in order and then once we kind of got

0:16:38.720,0:16:44.079
through them then it was like oh

0:16:41.120,0:16:45.519
now all of those movies that were direct

0:16:44.079,0:16:48.880
to dvd

0:16:45.519,0:16:50.959
you know sequels of things oh never saw

0:16:48.880,0:16:53.120
this one before and you know so

0:16:50.959,0:16:54.320
and there are movies like i said that

0:16:53.120,0:16:57.360
you know i’ve never

0:16:54.320,0:16:59.600
even you know seen before and now

0:16:57.360,0:17:01.360
all of a sudden popping up and now we’re

0:16:59.600,0:17:02.320
we’re starting to watch some of the live

0:17:01.360,0:17:04.880
action

0:17:02.320,0:17:06.400
um movies and and things like that and

0:17:04.880,0:17:09.280
it was like oh look here’s

0:17:06.400,0:17:10.000
another news one of disney’s biggest

0:17:09.280,0:17:13.439
pluses

0:17:10.000,0:17:16.319
no pun intended is their back catalog

0:17:13.439,0:17:17.839
right but this decision here indicates

0:17:16.319,0:17:18.640
that they’re not just relying on their

0:17:17.839,0:17:21.360
backpacks right

0:17:18.640,0:17:22.400
exactly they are prepping for the future

0:17:21.360,0:17:25.520
of

0:17:22.400,0:17:27.360
disney plus is going to be our at-home

0:17:25.520,0:17:28.559
theater right what are we going to give

0:17:27.360,0:17:29.919
you for that there’s going to be a

0:17:28.559,0:17:30.960
stream of things that are going to come

0:17:29.919,0:17:32.320
out for that

0:17:30.960,0:17:34.320
and you’re going to it sounds like

0:17:32.320,0:17:36.720
you’re going to have a class of

0:17:34.320,0:17:38.000
right entertainment that that’s going to

0:17:36.720,0:17:39.840
be your outlet

we’ll still have theatrical releases

0:17:39.840,0:17:44.480

0:17:49.760,0:17:53.440
right and they’re gonna do that right

0:17:51.200,0:17:56.320
like documentaries that normally

0:17:53.440,0:17:57.600
most people don’t see or go to the

0:17:56.320,0:17:59.760

mandalorian

0:19:41.120,0:19:47.280
there were there was a new tv spot

0:19:44.160,0:19:48.160
uh that came up with new footage that

0:19:47.280,0:19:50.240
was released

0:19:48.160,0:19:52.720
plenty of exciting you know casting

0:19:50.240,0:19:55.520
rumors obviously that we’ve been

0:19:52.720,0:19:56.720
um you know talking about for for a

0:19:55.520,0:20:00.160
while now

0:19:56.720,0:20:04.080
um obviously pedro pascal stars

0:20:00.160,0:20:07.360
in uh the series um and he was recently

0:20:04.080,0:20:08.400
um talking in a interview with uh

0:20:07.360,0:20:10.559
variety

0:20:08.400,0:20:11.520
where he actually confirmed that he was

0:20:10.559,0:20:14.559
on set

0:20:11.520,0:20:14.960
more for the second season uh he said

0:20:14.559,0:20:17.679
first

0:20:14.960,0:20:18.880
uh they said for season two pascal says

0:20:17.679,0:20:22.000
that he was on set

0:20:18.880,0:20:26.000
far more though he still set out many of

0:20:22.000,0:20:28.240
mando’s stunts um variety revealed

0:20:26.000,0:20:30.000
the site points out that some actors

0:20:28.240,0:20:30.640
would have walked away from a role that

0:20:30.000,0:20:33.200
was so

0:20:30.640,0:20:35.760
constricting citing how odd would it

0:20:33.200,0:20:38.480
have been if robert downey jr

0:20:35.760,0:20:40.080
only portrayed iron man while in the

0:20:38.480,0:20:42.640
suit

0:20:40.080,0:20:45.280
he said if there were more than just a

0:20:42.640,0:20:47.360
couple of pages of a one-on-one scene i

0:20:45.280,0:20:49.840
did feel uneasy about not

0:20:47.360,0:20:50.880
in some instances being able to totally

0:20:49.840,0:20:53.440
author that

0:20:50.880,0:20:55.280
pascal explained about playing the role

0:20:53.440,0:20:58.400
but it was so easy in such a

0:20:55.280,0:21:02.400
sort of practical and unexciting way

0:20:58.400,0:21:04.480
for it to uh be up to them uh when

0:21:02.400,0:21:05.120
you’re dealing with a franchise as large

0:21:04.480,0:21:08.159
as this

0:21:05.120,0:21:10.240
you’re such a passenger to however they

0:21:08.159,0:21:12.720
are going to carve it out it’s just so

0:21:10.240,0:21:16.720
specific it’s star wars

0:21:12.720,0:21:18.799
so good to see that he’s kind of coming

0:21:16.720,0:21:20.320
you know forward about everything that

0:21:18.799,0:21:22.799
we’ve been you know

0:21:20.320,0:21:23.679
hearing back and forth with the rumors

0:21:22.799,0:21:26.960
you know

0:21:23.679,0:21:30.240
that he got pissed off and you know

0:21:26.960,0:21:32.320
didn’t want to do anything so yeah and

0:21:30.240,0:21:34.000
you know we kind of thought that those

0:21:32.320,0:21:36.640
rumors were

0:21:34.000,0:21:37.760
not particularly holding water very well

0:21:36.640,0:21:39.360
right right

0:21:37.760,0:21:41.440
and and like i said you know there’s

0:21:39.360,0:21:43.840
probably some truth to some of what

0:21:41.440,0:21:45.360
came out of that and you know i’m sure

0:21:43.840,0:21:46.640
he’s got concerns that

0:21:45.360,0:21:49.919
you know he’s an actor it’s going to

0:21:46.640,0:21:52.080
hurt his career if he’s not eligible for

0:21:49.919,0:21:53.679
you know an emmy for a show that’s

0:21:52.080,0:21:57.039
probably one of the best shows

0:21:53.679,0:22:00.000
out there right now yeah so yeah

0:21:57.039,0:22:01.280
legitimate concerns but uh sounds like

0:22:00.000,0:22:03.360
it was

0:22:01.280,0:22:05.360
all water under the bridge at this point

0:22:03.360,0:22:08.640
yeah and speaking of the emmys

0:22:05.360,0:22:10.640
uh they were nominated for 15 wow

0:22:08.640,0:22:12.640
this past season and they actually won

0:22:10.640,0:22:15.280
seven out of the 15.

0:22:12.640,0:22:16.799
of course they were um they were all the

0:22:15.280,0:22:19.919
technical ones but still

0:22:16.799,0:22:22.559
hey seven emmys for a freshman

0:22:19.919,0:22:23.919
show that’s you know only what eight

0:22:22.559,0:22:26.240
episodes long

0:22:23.919,0:22:27.600
not not too not too shabby not too

0:22:26.240,0:22:29.520
shabby yeah

0:22:27.600,0:22:31.760
so let’s talk about that holiday special

0:22:29.520,0:22:35.280
we all know and love

0:22:31.760,0:22:38.240
so recently uh mark hamill was being

0:22:35.280,0:22:39.039
interviewed um they were doing a a

0:22:38.240,0:22:42.080
streaming

0:22:39.039,0:22:44.640
event it was the dean of the university

0:22:42.080,0:22:46.960
of southern california’s

0:22:44.640,0:22:50.000
school of communication and journalism

0:22:46.960,0:22:50.000
that had an event

0:22:50.400,0:22:54.159
earlier this week and of course you know

0:22:53.360,0:22:56.880
one of the things

0:22:54.159,0:22:59.120
that every now and then comes up is hey

0:22:56.880,0:23:03.440
how about that holiday special

0:22:59.120,0:23:06.880
so obviously the infamous 1978 special

0:23:03.440,0:23:08.159
only aired once on cbs and was never

0:23:06.880,0:23:10.559
released on video

0:23:08.159,0:23:11.360
even though obviously there are copies

0:23:10.559,0:23:14.799
of it uh

0:23:11.360,0:23:16.480
available out there um and obviously

0:23:14.799,0:23:18.240
disney plus isn’t planning on on

0:23:16.480,0:23:20.000
streaming it anytime soon

0:23:18.240,0:23:22.480
um it was supposed to be about

0:23:20.000,0:23:25.679
chewbacca’s journey home to spend

0:23:22.480,0:23:26.400
a wookie holiday with his family and

0:23:25.679,0:23:29.600
there were

0:23:26.400,0:23:32.960
celebrity cameos and different segments

0:23:29.600,0:23:35.280
um which made little sense and obviously

0:23:32.960,0:23:36.080
to anybody that’s ever watched it kind

0:23:35.280,0:23:39.120
of painful

0:23:36.080,0:23:41.039
to to go through so

0:23:39.120,0:23:43.120
hamel said that he actually almost

0:23:41.039,0:23:43.679
didn’t take part in the special because

0:23:43.120,0:23:46.480
he just

0:23:43.679,0:23:47.760
knew how bad it was he said when i read

0:23:46.480,0:23:50.480
the script he said

0:23:47.760,0:23:51.120
i’m not doing this but what changed his

0:23:50.480,0:23:53.279
mind

0:23:51.120,0:23:54.880
obviously it was george lucas and

0:23:53.279,0:23:57.919
merchandising

0:23:54.880,0:24:00.480
so he had said so in the interview he

0:23:57.919,0:24:01.039
he said that george you know called me

0:24:00.480,0:24:03.760
and said

0:24:01.039,0:24:06.320
please do this you’ve got to remember

0:24:03.760,0:24:08.559
this is christmas of 1978

0:24:06.320,0:24:09.440
a year and a half after star wars new

0:24:08.559,0:24:12.720
hope had come

0:24:09.440,0:24:14.799
out and george had called him and said

0:24:12.720,0:24:17.600
listen i heard you don’t want to do this

0:24:14.799,0:24:18.000
and and mark was like oh it’s terrible

0:24:17.600,0:24:20.559
it’s not

0:24:18.000,0:24:22.480
stor star wars it’s like a bob hope

0:24:20.559,0:24:24.320
special

0:24:22.480,0:24:25.520
and when you think about it yet it

0:24:24.320,0:24:28.720
really kind of

0:24:25.520,0:24:30.480
was and not even a very good one and uh

0:24:28.720,0:24:32.480
so he said well we really need to do

0:24:30.480,0:24:34.880
this for the merchandisers to keep the

0:24:32.480,0:24:38.720
product alive in people’s minds so just

0:24:34.880,0:24:41.039
do me a favor do this for me and he said

0:24:38.720,0:24:41.600
of course it’s george how do i i not do

0:24:41.039,0:24:45.039
it

0:24:41.600,0:24:45.600
um so obviously you know he was part of

0:24:45.039,0:24:48.640
it

0:24:45.600,0:24:51.120
um harrison ford and carrie fisher also

0:24:48.640,0:24:51.760
make you know brief cameos at the end of

0:24:51.120,0:24:54.720
it

0:24:51.760,0:24:56.400
and then he just said that you know

0:24:54.720,0:24:58.960
george basically was never

0:24:56.400,0:25:00.880
able to live it down like he said if he

0:24:58.960,0:25:03.520
could find every copy

0:25:00.880,0:25:04.799
that there was of this and smash it with

0:25:03.520,0:25:08.080
a hammer

0:25:04.799,0:25:10.960
that would you know make his day um

0:25:08.080,0:25:11.520
you know it it was kind of the the point

0:25:10.960,0:25:13.440
where

0:25:11.520,0:25:15.760
you know george kind of realized

0:25:13.440,0:25:18.080
everybody makes a mistake

0:25:15.760,0:25:19.039
and just didn’t want to you know live it

0:25:18.080,0:25:22.640
down and

0:25:19.039,0:25:24.799
obviously you know um

0:25:22.640,0:25:26.640
not to get political but during the

0:25:24.799,0:25:30.240
first uh

0:25:26.640,0:25:32.720
presidential debate mark hamill actually

0:25:30.240,0:25:34.240
tweeted out about it saying that this

0:25:32.720,0:25:34.799
debate was the worst thing that i’ve

0:25:34.240,0:25:36.480
ever seen

0:25:34.799,0:25:39.039
and i was in the star wars holiday

0:25:36.480,0:25:39.039
special

0:25:39.679,0:25:46.880
nice very nice so

0:25:43.919,0:25:47.840
but we are supposed to be getting a new

0:25:46.880,0:25:50.240
holiday

0:25:47.840,0:25:52.400
you know special um you know this

0:25:50.240,0:25:56.320
holiday season on disney plus

0:25:52.400,0:25:57.919
so hopefully it will be i doubt that

0:25:56.320,0:25:59.600
we’ll have people forget about the

0:25:57.919,0:26:01.919
original holidays yeah

0:25:59.600,0:26:03.279
yeah that that’s yeah it’s you know what

0:26:01.919,0:26:06.480
it’s worth a watch

0:26:03.279,0:26:08.000
oh absolutely as a kid

0:26:06.480,0:26:10.720
i thought it was the greatest thing

0:26:08.000,0:26:11.919
since sliced bread i i never remembered

0:26:10.720,0:26:14.640
seeing it as a kid

0:26:11.919,0:26:16.480
i remember that and i remember the ewoks

0:26:14.640,0:26:17.840
series and all the other stuff that they

0:26:16.480,0:26:19.919
came out with to try to keep the whole

0:26:17.840,0:26:22.799
franchise going

0:26:19.919,0:26:25.520
but um you know you stick a seven foot

0:26:22.799,0:26:28.080
tall wookie and a red dress and

0:26:25.520,0:26:29.679

0:29:39.120,0:29:42.880
lightsaber

0:29:40.080,0:29:44.720

0:29:42.880,0:29:45.279
something eventually we’ll get back down

0:29:44.720,0:29:47.600

0:29:45.279,0:29:48.720
uh we will eventually get back down

0:29:47.600,0:29:50.320
there

0:29:48.720,0:29:52.399
there are a number of things that i need

0:29:50.320,0:29:52.399
to

0:29:53.440,0:29:55.760
you don’t need purchase make another

0:29:54.399,0:29:56.720
lightsaber down there with the horn on

0:29:55.760,0:29:59.279
the end right

0:29:56.720,0:30:00.640
right right there’s lots of money to be

0:29:59.279,0:30:02.960
spent yet down there

0:30:00.640,0:30:05.760
absolutely i have no doubt nope what are

0:30:02.960,0:30:05.760
you doing this weekend

0:30:06.799,0:30:11.679
i don’t know they they did start doing

0:30:08.799,0:30:13.679
the uh the lightsaber builds again

0:30:11.679,0:30:14.720
down how did they yeah that was

0:30:13.679,0:30:16.880
something that just

0:30:14.720,0:30:19.440
started back up but it looks kind of

0:30:16.880,0:30:21.279
funny because there was a video

0:30:19.440,0:30:22.559
that somebody had posted because they

0:30:21.279,0:30:24.960
have the plexiglass

0:30:22.559,0:30:26.320
up and and the person that that’s

0:30:24.960,0:30:28.960
helping to

0:30:26.320,0:30:30.080
uh have you build it he’s wearing the

0:30:28.960,0:30:32.320
face shield

0:30:30.080,0:30:34.080
so looks looks a little different from

0:30:32.320,0:30:36.240
when we were there last year you know

0:30:34.080,0:30:37.760

0:33:21.120,0:33:25.679
news with robert

0:33:22.640,0:33:27.760
pattinson obviously we had reported

0:33:25.679,0:33:29.360
about a month ago that he had tested

0:33:27.760,0:33:32.159
positive for kovid

0:33:29.360,0:33:32.640
and that had actually put the production

0:33:32.159,0:33:35.760
of

0:33:32.640,0:33:36.320
the batman movie on hold and now it

0:33:35.760,0:33:39.519
seems

0:33:36.320,0:33:42.559
that they have actually started filming

0:33:39.519,0:33:45.360
again um there were some

0:33:42.559,0:33:46.000
uh production stills that that came out

0:33:45.360,0:33:49.360
um

0:33:46.000,0:33:52.320
recently uh from the movie set so now

0:33:49.360,0:33:53.840
you know things seem to be slowly coming

0:33:52.320,0:33:55.919
back up with that

0:33:53.840,0:33:57.919
um obviously now we’re gonna have to

0:33:55.919,0:33:59.360
wait a little bit longer because the

0:33:57.919,0:34:02.640
release date for

0:33:59.360,0:34:05.760
that movie got pushed out to now uh

0:34:02.640,0:34:08.720
march 4th of 2022

0:34:05.760,0:34:09.919
so we got we got a bit of a while uh

0:34:08.720,0:34:12.879
before we can

0:34:09.919,0:34:14.159
see the batman so but good to hear that

0:34:12.879,0:34:16.399
they’re you know

0:34:14.159,0:34:18.000
back in in production for it so that is

0:34:16.399,0:34:18.720
good yeah it’s good to hear that he’s

0:34:18.000,0:34:21.599
well and

0:34:18.720,0:34:22.399
and we didn’t have any major health

0:34:21.599,0:34:24.879
scares

0:34:22.399,0:34:26.159
you know involved there because you know

0:34:24.879,0:34:27.200
everyone in the brother’s getting

0:34:26.159,0:34:29.040
coveted these days

0:34:27.200,0:34:31.520
and a lot of people are not faring well

0:34:29.040,0:34:33.679
with it no not at all

0:34:31.520,0:34:36.159
so adam sandler is going to be in our

0:34:33.679,0:34:36.480
backyard yeah he’s actually uh been here

0:34:36.159,0:34:39.440
for

0:34:36.480,0:34:40.159
for a little bit so adam sandler is

0:34:39.440,0:34:43.359
actually

0:34:40.159,0:34:46.480
in philly where he is filming a

0:34:43.359,0:34:48.800
um a new netflix movie called hustle

0:34:46.480,0:34:49.919
and it’s the first major production in

0:34:48.800,0:34:53.040
the city since

0:34:49.919,0:34:56.240
covid um you know

0:34:53.040,0:34:59.280
reared its ugly head um so sandler has

0:34:56.240,0:35:02.079
filmed uh scenes along market street

0:34:59.280,0:35:02.800
um has also been spotted you know

0:35:02.079,0:35:05.680
shopping

0:35:02.800,0:35:07.680
in some of the local stores eating in

0:35:05.680,0:35:10.880
some of the restaurants

0:35:07.680,0:35:14.640
so in this movie sandler plays

0:35:10.880,0:35:17.040
a um excuse me a basketball scout

0:35:14.640,0:35:18.240
who has been unjustifiably fired from

0:35:17.040,0:35:20.960
his position

0:35:18.240,0:35:24.480
according to variety sandler’s character

0:35:20.960,0:35:27.119
discovers a once-in-a-lifetime player

0:35:24.480,0:35:29.440
and brings him to the states in hopes of

0:35:27.119,0:35:31.119
training him for the nba

0:35:29.440,0:35:33.040
so they have a whole bunch of different

0:35:31.119,0:35:35.040
nba players

0:35:33.040,0:35:36.560
uh past and present who kind of make

0:35:35.040,0:35:38.400
little cameos uh

0:35:36.560,0:35:39.680
throughout the movie but what was cool

0:35:38.400,0:35:43.119
was that you know

0:35:39.680,0:35:46.079
he’s been seen you know staying here

0:35:43.119,0:35:47.359
as well one of the cool things was that

0:35:46.079,0:35:50.720
he actually

0:35:47.359,0:35:53.920
ended up going to a local music store

0:35:50.720,0:35:56.160
and bought two guitars um he

0:35:53.920,0:35:58.000
there was some music he wanted to to

0:35:56.160,0:35:59.440
write that night and he didn’t have a

0:35:58.000,0:36:02.000
guitar with him so he

0:35:59.440,0:36:04.000
you know went in and bought a guitar one

0:36:02.000,0:36:06.720
of the local ice cream shops

0:36:04.000,0:36:08.000
uh he went and visited and you know a

0:36:06.720,0:36:09.680
couple of people

0:36:08.000,0:36:11.680
stopped and got photos with him and of

0:36:09.680,0:36:12.079
course he you know went to pat’s to get

0:36:11.680,0:36:14.560
a

0:36:12.079,0:36:16.160
cheesesteak so kind of cool that he’s

0:36:14.560,0:36:18.240
you know in the area for

0:36:16.160,0:36:20.000
for a little bit cool well it’s always

0:36:18.240,0:36:21.040
good to have a celebrity in town once in

0:36:20.000,0:36:23.119
a while

0:36:21.040,0:36:25.119
i think the last big celebrity thing we

0:36:23.119,0:36:27.119

0:36:34.320,0:36:36.880
actually over at the art museum as a

0:36:35.920,0:36:38.079
matter of fact

0:36:36.880,0:36:40.160
people were taking pictures of

0:36:38.079,0:36:43.119
themselves yeah that’s kind of cool yeah

0:36:40.160,0:36:44.240
kind of cool and that was all we had for

0:36:43.119,0:36:47.119
entertainment news

0:36:55.200,0:37:00.000
yeah it’s fine

0:36:56.400,0:37:03.119
so new york comic-con was last weekend

0:37:00.000,0:37:07.040
um you know everything was virtual

0:37:03.119,0:37:09.280
i think in terms of comparing

0:37:07.040,0:37:11.119
san diego to new york i think new york

0:37:09.280,0:37:14.480
did a much better job

0:37:11.119,0:37:15.680
um the the videos for the most part seem

0:37:14.480,0:37:19.040
to be

0:37:15.680,0:37:20.720
better produced um you know there

0:37:19.040,0:37:22.400
there was one that we started watching

0:37:20.720,0:37:24.000
that we didn’t actually

0:37:22.400,0:37:25.440
really make it a couple of minutes

0:37:24.000,0:37:27.200
through just because of who the

0:37:25.440,0:37:28.560
moderator was they weren’t doing a very

0:37:27.200,0:37:31.200
good job but

0:37:28.560,0:37:33.680
most cases yeah just a hint for any

0:37:31.200,0:37:35.599
shows out there do not have tv critics

0:37:33.680,0:37:37.280
moderate your shows well no

0:37:35.599,0:37:39.040
because some of them were open oh the

0:37:37.280,0:37:41.040
other one that they did on doctor who

0:37:39.040,0:37:44.079
wasn’t a great moderator here like

0:37:41.040,0:37:47.680
you know who was a great moderator the

0:37:44.079,0:37:49.760
the the uh the expanse

0:37:47.680,0:37:51.200
because they had one of the actual right

0:37:49.760,0:37:53.599
it was one of the cast

0:37:51.200,0:37:54.560
i actually moderated and there was an

0:37:53.599,0:37:57.680
excitement

0:37:54.560,0:38:00.240
there was even even um uh

0:37:57.680,0:38:03.359
walking dead the walking dead panel was

0:38:00.240,0:38:03.359
moderated by um

0:38:03.680,0:38:07.200
chris hardwick chris hartman thank you

0:38:07.200,0:38:09.760
remember the names you can’t pronounce

0:38:08.560,0:38:13.119
them it’s a team effort here

0:38:09.760,0:38:14.240
right there we go um i would also

0:38:13.119,0:38:17.599
suggest

0:38:14.240,0:38:18.079
that if you are a actor who is going to

0:38:17.599,0:38:21.119
be doing

0:38:18.079,0:38:22.320
virtual comic conventions and stuff like

0:38:21.119,0:38:25.200
that

0:38:22.320,0:38:27.040
buy a decent camera do the lighting in

0:38:25.200,0:38:30.960
your house correctly

0:39:12.640,0:39:16.800
panels went right

0:39:14.400,0:39:18.160
and we still didn’t even get through all

0:39:16.800,0:39:21.280
of them there were still

0:39:18.160,0:39:22.079
a bunch that you know we wanted to to

0:39:21.280,0:39:24.480
watch and just

0:39:22.079,0:39:25.920
haven’t you know had time so it

0:39:24.480,0:39:27.280
definitely seemed a little bit more

0:39:25.920,0:39:28.720
organized and

0:39:27.280,0:39:30.880
you know so i don’t know if it was just

0:39:28.720,0:39:31.839
that they had more time to get things

0:39:30.880,0:39:35.280
ready

0:39:31.839,0:39:36.079
than san diego um but you know

0:39:35.280,0:39:38.720
definitely

0:39:36.079,0:39:40.079
take a look it’s on their youtube page

0:39:38.720,0:39:44.720
you know all the different

0:39:40.079,0:39:46.800
you know um uh panels are there so

0:39:44.720,0:39:50.720
all right we’ll be back in a minute with

0:39:46.800,0:39:50.720
our insightful picks of the week

0:39:51.630,0:39:56.880
[Applause]

0:39:54.000,0:39:58.240
yo for your insightful pick so my

0:39:56.880,0:40:01.839
insightful pick is a

0:39:58.240,0:40:04.880
new show that is on uh amc

0:40:01.839,0:40:06.800
and it’s called soulmates soulmates

0:40:04.880,0:40:07.599
paints a future where science can

0:40:06.800,0:40:10.960
identify

0:40:07.599,0:40:12.480
your perfect match um so

0:40:10.960,0:40:14.480
the idea of the show it’s actually kind

0:40:12.480,0:40:17.520
of interesting no

0:40:14.480,0:40:20.319
uh two episodes um

0:40:17.520,0:40:22.079
have the same cast you know each episode

0:40:20.319,0:40:24.960
is basically its own

0:40:22.079,0:40:26.560
little story and basically what it is is

0:40:24.960,0:40:29.839
you know sometime in the

0:40:26.560,0:40:33.119
not too um you know

0:40:29.839,0:40:33.760
distant future there is a company that

0:40:33.119,0:40:37.440
comes out

0:40:33.760,0:40:39.920
that says that you can take this uh test

0:40:37.440,0:40:41.200
and they’ll tell you who your your

0:40:39.920,0:40:44.160
soulmate is

0:40:41.200,0:40:44.960
and that you know basically everybody

0:40:44.160,0:40:48.000
you know

0:40:44.960,0:40:49.839
in the world is is taking this test that

0:40:48.000,0:40:50.079
you know all the different talk shows

0:40:49.839,0:40:52.880
are

0:40:50.079,0:40:53.520
all talking about people that have taken

0:40:52.880,0:40:57.520
the test

0:40:53.520,0:40:59.920
uh soul connection is is the the company

0:40:57.520,0:41:01.920
out there um but of course you know

0:40:59.920,0:41:04.960
people are are taking the test who are

0:41:01.920,0:41:05.839
already with somebody and finding out

0:41:04.960,0:41:08.480
that they’re

0:41:05.839,0:41:09.280
with the wrong person you know so to

0:41:08.480,0:41:12.079
speak

0:41:09.280,0:41:12.640
um so it becomes that dilemma of you

0:41:12.079,0:41:15.359
know

0:41:12.640,0:41:16.400
do you leave your marriage do you leave

0:41:15.359,0:41:19.680
your current

0:41:16.400,0:41:22.880
you know situation to go often and find

0:41:19.680,0:41:25.119
you know that other person um so again

0:41:22.880,0:41:25.920
there uh there’s only been two episodes

0:41:25.119,0:41:28.800
so far

0:41:25.920,0:41:29.680
uh it comes out uh sunday uh sorry

0:41:28.800,0:41:33.359
monday nights

0:41:29.680,0:41:35.280
at 10 but again very interesting because

0:41:33.359,0:41:37.599
it’s all these different you know

0:41:35.280,0:41:39.680
dynamics the the first dynamic

0:41:37.599,0:41:40.720
uh the first episode is a husband and

0:41:39.680,0:41:44.640
wife

0:41:40.720,0:41:48.560
and everything you know seems okay

0:41:44.640,0:41:52.000
and um you know her the the wife’s

0:41:48.560,0:41:53.920
brother has been uh in

0:41:52.000,0:41:55.839
bad relationships his whole life and all

0:41:53.920,0:41:57.680
of a sudden takes the test and meets the

0:41:55.839,0:41:58.960
love of his life and within two weeks

0:41:57.680,0:42:01.920
they’re married

0:41:58.960,0:42:02.640
and she’s kind of uh you know the the

0:42:01.920,0:42:06.079
wife is

0:42:02.640,0:42:08.800
is kind of going back and forth

0:42:06.079,0:42:10.400
of you know do i take the test do i not

0:42:08.800,0:42:12.400
uh she has a friend of hers

0:42:10.400,0:42:14.560
who takes it and her marriage falls

0:42:12.400,0:42:17.839
apart the husband kicks her out

0:42:14.560,0:42:20.480
so she goes to take the test and then

0:42:17.839,0:42:22.480
decides no i don’t want to take it and

0:42:20.480,0:42:24.880
she goes and tells her husband

0:42:22.480,0:42:26.560
hey i was going to take this test i knew

0:42:24.880,0:42:27.920
we were having issues but

0:42:26.560,0:42:29.680
i couldn’t go through with it and

0:42:27.920,0:42:30.560
whatever and then the husband comes out

0:42:29.680,0:42:34.160
and says

0:42:30.560,0:42:37.599
yeah i took the test and

0:42:34.160,0:42:40.960
so it’s like oh okay no

0:42:37.599,0:42:44.640
but just very interesting and and again

0:42:40.960,0:42:46.560
what what’s very nice about it is

0:42:44.640,0:42:48.960
not every episode you know so you don’t

0:42:46.560,0:42:51.119
necessarily have to watch them in order

0:42:48.960,0:42:53.599
and they’re all you know different story

0:42:51.119,0:42:58.260
lines so very very interesting

0:42:53.599,0:43:00.400
all right good pick thank you

0:42:58.260,0:43:03.040
[Applause]

0:43:00.400,0:43:04.560
so my pick this week is not a

0:43:03.040,0:43:08.319
documentary

0:43:04.560,0:43:10.880
kind of right uh it is the right stuff a

0:43:08.319,0:43:12.480
new series on national geographic or by

0:43:10.880,0:43:15.760
natural geographic

0:43:12.480,0:43:18.079
available on disney plus

0:43:15.760,0:43:20.720
the incredible story of the early days

0:43:18.079,0:43:22.800
of the u.s space program

0:43:20.720,0:43:24.160
based on the iconic bestseller by tom

0:43:22.800,0:43:26.560
wolf

0:43:24.160,0:43:28.560
at the height of the cold war newly

0:43:26.560,0:43:30.640
formed nasa selects seven of the

0:43:28.560,0:43:32.800
military’s best test pilots to become

0:43:30.640,0:43:36.079
astronauts

0:43:32.800,0:43:38.480
competing to become the first in space

0:43:36.079,0:43:40.079
these men achieve the extraordinary

0:43:38.480,0:43:43.040
inspiring the world to

0:43:40.079,0:43:44.560
turn towards a new horizon of ambition

0:43:43.040,0:43:47.839
and hope

0:43:44.560,0:43:50.319
now the show itself is based on the book

0:43:47.839,0:43:53.359
it’s based on real life events but it’s

0:43:50.319,0:43:57.839
dramatized so it’s not a documentary

0:43:53.359,0:43:58.880
um it is a historical drama we’ll call

0:43:57.839,0:44:01.680
it

0:43:58.880,0:44:02.960
and what you know we’ve only seen the

0:44:01.680,0:44:04.960
one episode so far

0:44:02.960,0:44:07.119
was it one or two episodes we’ve only

0:44:04.960,0:44:08.560
seen the one the one the second episode

0:44:07.119,0:44:10.160
is available we haven’t watched it

0:44:08.560,0:44:11.920
haven’t watched it yet um

0:44:10.160,0:44:13.280
what’s interesting about it is you get

0:44:11.920,0:44:15.440
to see

0:44:13.280,0:44:16.960
sort of behind the scenes and some of

0:44:15.440,0:44:19.200
the stuff is

0:44:16.960,0:44:20.400
you know creative writing for the most

0:44:19.200,0:44:23.440
part

0:44:20.400,0:44:26.800
um but the inspiration

0:44:23.440,0:44:28.720
that happened from the

0:44:26.800,0:44:30.640
moon landings and the space program and

0:44:28.720,0:44:33.200
everything all of that comes out

0:44:30.640,0:44:35.359
and that’s all genuine uh you see some

0:44:33.200,0:44:38.319
of the historical

0:44:35.359,0:44:40.079
uh relationships that occur and like how

0:44:38.319,0:44:41.839
some of these guys got selected how they

0:44:40.079,0:44:44.160
got along with each other

0:44:41.839,0:44:46.880
but i think most importantly you see

0:44:44.160,0:44:49.760
these seven astronauts who were held up

0:44:46.880,0:44:51.920
to the world as

0:44:49.760,0:44:54.800
heroes even before they did anything

0:44:51.920,0:44:57.599
heroic they were held up as heroes

0:44:54.800,0:44:58.480
but the show come brings out the flaws

0:44:57.599,0:45:01.520
that they have

0:44:58.480,0:45:05.200
you know you see that they’re just

0:45:01.520,0:45:07.760
regular guys they’re regular people um

0:45:05.200,0:45:09.920
they have extraordinary talents they’re

0:45:07.760,0:45:11.119
extraordinarily brave but they have all

0:45:09.920,0:45:13.359
the same flaws

0:45:11.119,0:45:16.160
all the same insecurities all the same

0:45:13.359,0:45:19.599
weaknesses that everyone else does

0:45:16.160,0:45:20.960
and instead of bringing them down to the

0:45:19.599,0:45:23.920
level of

0:45:20.960,0:45:24.319
an average citizen i think if anything

0:45:23.920,0:45:28.240
it

0:45:24.319,0:45:29.359
it elevates everyone else to the point

0:45:28.240,0:45:32.160
of

0:45:29.359,0:45:32.640
you know you can do these extraordinary

0:45:32.160,0:45:34.960
things

0:45:32.640,0:45:37.280
even though you may not think you’re an

0:45:34.960,0:45:39.760
extraordinary individual

0:45:37.280,0:45:40.880
so it offers that sense of hope and

0:45:39.760,0:45:42.960
empowerment

0:45:40.880,0:45:44.880
the way that the show is done so it’s

0:45:42.960,0:45:47.520
it’s very well done

0:45:44.880,0:45:49.200
the acting is great the special effects

0:45:47.520,0:45:52.240
uh so far have been

0:45:49.200,0:45:53.760
spot on um they haven’t relied on any

0:45:52.240,0:45:55.119
archival footage which is

0:45:53.760,0:45:56.880
which is kind of nice everything that

0:45:55.119,0:45:59.280
you see is stuff that’s been generated

0:45:56.880,0:46:01.359
for the show itself so

0:45:59.280,0:46:02.720
that suggests how serious they are they

0:46:01.359,0:46:05.839
are about the show itself

0:46:02.720,0:46:15.200
so the right stuff available now

0:46:05.839,0:46:17.839
on disney plus and we’ll be right back

0:46:15.200,0:46:19.839
so i think that was all we had for this

0:46:17.839,0:46:21.520
week i did want to put out a quick

0:46:19.839,0:46:24.319
programming note

0:46:21.520,0:46:25.520
that we likely will not be podcasting

0:46:24.319,0:46:28.160
next week

0:46:25.520,0:46:29.920
we have we won’t we’ve got something

0:46:28.160,0:46:30.319
going on next week so we probably won’t

0:46:29.920,0:46:32.400
be

0:46:30.319,0:46:33.760
uh available to do the podcast next week

0:46:32.400,0:46:34.240
