    • Disney+ Rumored to Be Merging With Hulu
    • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/disney-plus-hulu-combining-streaming-service-new/
    • https://bit.ly/3osRNUM 
      • The new rumor from Collider claiming that the company is looking at ways to merge its Disney+ streaming service with Hulu for one all-encompassing platform. 
      • Disney had been planning its launch of Disney+ for years, with the studio’s purchase of a majority of 20th Century Fox’s assets last year bringing a number of new properties, and platforms, under one umbrella. 
      • It’s hard to deny that things would be much easier if the brands were combined, but there are still some questions about how such a move would happen.
      • Currently, Disney+ has roughly 73 million subscribers while Hulu has roughly 36 million, so finding a way to tout one platform that has 110 million subscribers would surely give such a streaming platform more firepower to make important deals. The big issue, however, is the strict delineation that currently exists between the type of content available on both services. On Disney+, everything could easily be described as “family-friendly,” as even their PG-13 fare is the tone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Star Wars films, earning these ratings due to mild language or intense action. Hulu, however, has R-rated and TV-MA content that many parents wouldn’t like their children to accidentally stumble across.
      • Despite both services being owned by Disney, Hulu and Disney+ operate independently of one another. However, what would likely be the best strategy for the company to merge these two brands is to create one streaming umbrella that could be launched that would house both services. For example, when a streaming app is launched, most users must first select which user profile they are using before being granted access to content, so if one streaming app would launch and then request that you select Disney+ or Hulu to proceed, there wouldn’t be too many issues regarding interface integration.
      • Ever since Disney acquired Fox’s assets, one of the biggest questions audiences have had is what the family-friendly studio would do with their R-rated brands. With a third Deadpool film scoring writers in recent weeks, a film series known for fully embracing the R-rated nature of the character, the studio has seemingly confirmed that it won’t be watering down its more abrasive brands, with a potential merger of its streaming platforms seeming like an inevitability.
    • Sherman Brother Son Prompted Iconic ‘Spoonful of Sugar’ Song

      • Behind so many earwigs from the classic Disney animation era are the musical Sherman Brothers. Richard and Robert, often known as Dick and Bob, penned classics heard in Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Aristocats, and more. Disney theme park fans will recognize One Little Spark, It’s A Small World After All, There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” the “Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room.
  • What you might not know is that Bob Sherman’s son, Jeffery, is the reason that Spoonful of Sugar was written! During the polio outbreaks in the early 1960s, the Shermans were penning songs for Mary Poppins and Jeffrey was behind one of the film’s most popular songs!
  • Jeffrey Sherman, son of Robert (Bob) Sherman, wrote a timely piece on his Facebook timeline about the upcoming vaccines and pandemic, relating the issue to his personal experience with Disney’s feature film, Mary Poppins. The lengthy, public post was shared on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, alongside a photo of Mary Poppins giving Jane and Michael Banks their medicine on spoons.
  • Jeffrey recalls being a child while his father and uncle worked tirelessly on the music for Mary Poppins, turning P.L. Travers’ story into a silver screen musical. The story begins,
  • “When I was a kid, they rolled out a vaccine for polio. We were given it at school on a sugar cube. I went home and my dad, who was working on Mary Poppins, asked how my day was.
  • What I didn’t know was that Julie Andrews who was hired to play Mary had not really liked the song my dad and uncle had written -“Through the Eyes of Love” – and it was rejected. It was their favorite song for the movie.
  • Walt asked the Sherman Brothers to come up with a new song that would be in line with Mary’s //Julie’s philosophy.
  • Dad asked me how my day was and I told him about getting the polio vaccine at school.
  • I was known for rejecting the booster shots at my doctors’ office and running away.
  • He said, “ Didn’t it hurt?””
  • This is where Jeffrey gave his father the magical words that ended up replacing Through the Eyes of Love with Mary’s best advice.
  • “I told him they put it on a sugar cube and you just ate it.
  • He stared at me, then went to the phone and called my uncle Dick.
  • They went back to the office and wrote -“A Spoonful of Sugar” (Helps the Medicine Go Down.”)
  • It’s my little corner of film music history I suppose. Inadvertently.”
  • Jeffrey’s sage advice doesn’t end there. He comments on getting back to our real normal, reflecting on the polio vaccine and the months ahead,
  • “For anyone I know here on FB, trust the doctors. When the vaccine for Covid comes out, get it.
  • We are all codependent on each other in this pandemic. Trust science and doctors and epidemiologists.
  • We are a small world and we will beat this enemy if we listen to those who know.
  • Be safe. Wear a mask. Be kind and thoughtful and considerate to your fellow man and woman.
  • We will beat this.

    • Star Wars: The Mandalorian Creator Jon Favreau Reveals New Details About Baby Yoda’s Macarons
    • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/star-wars-the-mandalorian-spoilers-baby-yoda-macarons-recipe/
    • https://bit.ly/36IySiw 
      • Star Wars: The Mandalorian has been breaking the Internet on almost a weekly basis, between the live-action introductions of major characters and countless other connections and pieces of lore. Along the way, there have been quite a lot of noteworthy moments involving Grogu, also known as “The Child” and “Baby Yoda”. One of the most adorable instances came in the series’ twelfth episode, which is titled “The Heist”. The episode saw Baby Yoda stealing and eating (and then throwing up) a package of macarons from another child in Navarro’s school, a sequence of events that quickly had fans smitten. If you’ve been wanting to try the light blue confection in real life, the popular YouTube channel Binging with Babish is here to help — with the help of The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau. In a new video, which was posted on Tuesday, Favreau joins in to provide a bit of behind-the-scenes intel about how the macarons came to be in the show.
      • “Josh, our prop master, came to us and was asking. ‘What do these cookies look like?’ If you look at the very end of the episode, under the credits, we like to include a lot of production art,” Favreau revealed. “So you can see the first look at what we thought it might look like. We wanted it to be blue, because it was like blue milk. And the prop master ended up baking macarons for it. But not a full macaron, not the sandwich, just like one half of the sandwich.”
      • Favreau also essentially apologizes for the screen-accurate cookie being so laborious (and often, expensive) to recreate, and suggests constructing a recipe for a blue raspberry sugar cookie as a more feasible alternative.
      • “It didn’t really have much flavor. It was kind of a blue raspberry a little bit, but again, because it’s on a film set, you’re not worried so much about the taste. It’s about the look. What I also found out now that everybody loves – especially, kids love to nerd out on the stuff in the show – that little kids might want to eat macarons, because it’s what Baby Yoda is eating. I later realized that macarons, when you buy them, could be several dollars each. So it’s an expensive thing.”
      • With the help of the macarons, “The Heist” was undeniably one of the most standout Baby Yoda episodes yet — something that series star Carl Weathers, who directed the episode, saw as a priority.
      • I know what the show is about – it’s called The Mandalorian, so that sort of takes care of that,” Weathers said in a recent interview. “But his sidekick, his ward, his little being that accompanies him on his journey, has this sweetness, this obviously childlike quality that we all love in little ones, before they can say ‘no!’ and throw things and have tantrums. When I read the script, one of my comments was to ask John to put more of the Baby in there.”
      • “The journey that we’re on is fraught with danger and is very action-oriented, and there’s a lot of weapons-fire and bad guys going down and chases and all that good stuff, explosions – it’s like a panoply of all the good stuff in action movies,” Weathers added. “But there’s also the Baby – this gentler, softer, sweeter side that comes out of everyone who interacts with him. And that to me was just a wonderful balance. Jon crafted these scenes so beautifully. I’m a fan of the Kid, I’m a real fan. I’d love to see more of him.”
    • The Real Reason George Lucas Sold Star Wars
    • https://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/ent/george-lucas-star-wars.html
    • https://bit.ly/3mMiuDq 
      • George Lucas made history when he sold the Star Wars brand and the rest of Lucasfilm to the Walt Disney Company in 2012. The landmark sale gave Disney the rights to arguably the most popular and influential piece of fiction of the last century. Many have speculated exactly why Lucas decided to sell off his most profitable venture, and now the answers have come to light.
      • In a new Star Wars Archives book, George Lucas revealed that the real motivation behind his sale of Lucasfilm and Star Wars was his family. “I was 69,” said Lucas in regard to his decision to work on a new trilogy of films. “So the question was am I going to keep doing this the rest of my life? Do I want to go through this again? Finally, I decided I’d rather raise my daughter and enjoy life for a while.”
      • George Lucas was planning to begin work on another Star Wars trilogy that would have taken place after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. According to Lucas, the way he made Star Wars films would take an entire decade. “It takes 10 years to make a trilogy – Episodes I to III took from 1995 to 2005,” said Lucas in the interview. Lucas was planning to get the new trilogy started in 2012, which means that he would still be working on Episode IX today if he had decided to make the movies himself.
      • That management and directing style also influenced the sale to the Walt Disney Company. George Lucas has said that his way of approaching Star Wars movies meant that he needed to be directly involved in as much of the process as possible. Knowing that, Lucas realized that he would be spending the next ten years deeply steeped in the world of Star Wars and film production. Upon realizing that, he had to make the decision whether or not to sell the property to the highest bidder and walk away.
      • “I’ve spent my life creating Star Wars – 40 years – and giving it up was very, very painful. But it was the right thing to do,” said George Lucas. While he shared his original ideas for the next trilogy with the Walt Disney Company, they ultimately decided to go a very different direction with a lot of the groundwork that Lucas had given them. While it is thrilling to think about what might have been, it seems like the decision to sell Star Wars was the right one for everyone involved.
      • Now, George Lucas is more focused on film legacy and preservation. That includes helping to build a museum, The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, and making sure that future generations understand the power and legacy of the arts. Maybe one day we will see a fully realized version of what George Lucas wanted to do with his sequel trilogy in some form or another. But for now, it is best to examine what we have and learn from it. The future of Star Wars is still wide and open, and we have some pretty exciting things coming down the pipe. We will have to see what happens.

    • Warner Bros. Smashes Box Office Windows, Will Send Entire 2021 Slate to HBO Max and Theaters
    • https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/warner-bros-smashes-box-office-windows-will-send-2021-slate-to-hbo-max-and-theaters
    • https://bit.ly/3qwxFms 
      • Warner Bros. is plotting a sweeping response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has shuttered movie theaters around the country. After announcing that Wonder Woman 1984 will go to HBO Max as well as theaters Dec. 25, the studio has laid out a similar path for its 2021 slate amid uncertainty about when moviegoing will get back to normal.
      • The studio announced Thursday day-and-date releases for its 17-film slate, which will hit HBO Max for a one-month window that starts the same day they will be available in U.S. theaters.
      • The studio’s 2021 slate includes projects such as The Suicide Squad, The Matrix 4, Dune, Godzilla vs. Kong and Space Jam: A New Legacy. Other films include Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In the Heights, Reminiscence, Malignant, The Many Saints of Newark, King Richard and Cry Macho.
      • The unprecedented move is likely to catch theater owners off guard and upsets a model that has been in place for decades. Warner Bros. stresses that these are pandemic-only rules, but once something is broken, can you really put it back together again? This also raises serious concerns about the landscape of moviegoing in 2021.
      • Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, argued the move would be good for the theatrical business in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
      • “It allows us to do a global release and a national release in what we think is going to be a checkerboarded theatrical market place for the bulk of 2021,” Emmerich told THR. “We think where theaters are open, and consumers can go, that a lot of people will choose to go to the theater, especially for big movies.”
      • Despite word of coming vaccines, the company decided to put the entire 2021 slate on HBO Max after consulting with epidemiologists. Emmerich said the move was “to guarantee as many movies as we could for the year for the global theatrical marketplace.”
      • Sources say these discussions were kept close to the vest and not shared with many exhibitors. Warner Bros. will likely have to agree to far more generous terms with theater owners to avoid them boycotting their films. Insiders say the Wonder Woman 1984 split of ticket sales is far better for exhibitors than normal. Sources also say the studio did not inform partners such as Legendary, which has Dune and Godzilla vs. Kong, that their films were included in this plan.
      • Emmerich would not comment on possible terms the studio might give theaters to show these films. He also noted he was excited for other studios to share their own plans, saying, “having movies out there is good for cinemas.”
      • In a statement announcing the news, Ann Sarnoff, CEO, WarnerMedia Studios and Networks Group, cited “unprecedented times” that “call for creative solutions.”
      • “No one wants films back on the big screen more than we do,” said Sarnoff. “We know new content is the lifeblood of theatrical exhibition, but we have to balance this with the reality that most theaters in the U.S. will likely operate at reduced capacity throughout 2021. With this unique one-year plan, we can support our partners in exhibition with a steady pipeline of world-class films, while also giving moviegoers who may not have access to theaters or aren’t quite ready to go back to the movies the chance to see our amazing 2021 films. We see it as a win-win for film lovers and exhibitors, and we’re extremely grateful to our filmmaking partners for working with us on this innovative response to these circumstances.”
      • WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar said in a statement, “After considering all available options and the projected state of moviegoing throughout 2021, we came to the conclusion that this was the best way for WarnerMedia’s motion picture business to navigate the next 12 months. More importantly, we are planning to bring consumers 17 remarkable movies throughout the year, giving them the choice and the power to decide how they want to enjoy these films. Our content is extremely valuable, unless it’s sitting on a shelf not being seen by anyone. We believe this approach serves our fans, supports exhibitors and filmmakers, and enhances the HBO Max experience, creating value for all.”
      • Kilar expanded upon his thinking in a blog post Thursday.
      • Emmerich said in a statement, “This hybrid exhibition model enables us to best support our films, creative partners and moviegoing in general throughout 2021. We have a fantastic, wide-ranging slate of titles from talented and visionary filmmakers next year, and we’re excited to be able get these movies in front of audiences around the world. And, as always, we’ll support all of our releases with innovative and robust marketing campaigns for their theatrical debuts, while highlighting this unique opportunity to see our films domestically via HBO Max as well.”
      • HBO Max is only available in the United States, and Warners’ 2021 slate will roll out internationally in theaters as planned. The move comes after Warners released Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in theaters this summer amid challenges faced by the pandemic.
      • Universal has already shortened theatrical windows via its unique VOD plan, which was put in place because of the pandemic.
      • When asked how long it took to get to this decision and to gain the support from across the company, Emmerich noted, “It took a minute as a company.”
      • “We have these movies just sitting on the shelf,” said Emmerich. “Consumers are starved for content.”

      • Elliot Page will continue to play the role of Vanya Hargreeves in “The Umbrella Academy,” the Netflix series about a family of superheroes that’s become one of the streaming service’s biggest hits.
      • Vanya is a cisgender woman whose superpower involves unleashing force through the use of sound. There are no plans to change the character’s gender, insiders told Variety.
      • Page, star of films such as “Juno” and the X-Men series, announced he is a gender non-binary transgender person in a heartfelt social media message on Tuesday. Page’s credited name has already been updated on “The Umbrella Academy’s” IMDB page.
      • Netflix is also in the process of updating Page’s name in the metadata across all titles he is involved with that are available to watch on the streaming service, another insider said. Those changes should start to be reflected throughout Tuesday.
      • The bulk of the social media reaction to Page’s announcement was positive, with stars such as Miley Cyrus and Kate Mara signaling their support. However, some commentators suggested that the role of Vanya Hargreeves should be recast. The character’s name trended on Twitter below #Elliot.
      • GLAAD, the LGBTQ advocacy group, pushed back at the notion that Vanya should be recast with a cisgender female actor.
      • “Trans actors can and do play both trans and cisgender characters. I’m sure Elliot will continue to be brilliant in Umbrella Academy and many different types of roles in the future,” Nick Adams, director of transgender media at GLAAD, told Variety.
      • “The Umbrella Academy” centers on group of adopted sibling superheroes who team up to solve the mystery of their father’s death while warding off a potential apocalypse. The series ended its second season in July. In November, Netflix renewed “The Umbrella Academy” for a third season.

0:03:52.159,0:04:01.519
go for disney detective

0:03:56.560,0:04:04.439
with our new sounds

0:04:01.519,0:04:05.840
uh so this article uh came from

0:04:04.439,0:04:09.120
comicbook.com

0:04:05.840,0:04:12.319
and it was actually uh they were uh

0:04:09.120,0:04:14.720
sourcing um collier i guess

0:04:12.319,0:04:15.840
um that they were claiming that it

0:04:14.720,0:04:18.959
looked like disney

0:04:15.840,0:04:22.479
was looking to finally merge with hulu

0:04:18.959,0:04:25.360
into one encompassing platform

0:04:22.479,0:04:26.800
so disney had been wanting to pla to

0:04:25.360,0:04:29.919
launch disney plus for

0:04:26.800,0:04:31.040
for years and with the studio purchasing

0:04:29.919,0:04:34.080
the majority

0:04:31.040,0:04:35.680
of 20th century fox assets last year

0:04:34.080,0:04:37.280
they’ve been talking about kind of

0:04:35.680,0:04:40.479
bringing everything in

0:04:37.280,0:04:42.800
under one umbrella so currently disney

0:04:40.479,0:04:43.919
plus has roughly about 73 million

0:04:42.800,0:04:46.960
subscribers

0:04:43.919,0:04:49.120
while hulu has roughly about 36 million

0:04:46.960,0:04:50.000
so finding a way to kind of do one

0:04:49.120,0:04:53.280
format for

0:04:50.000,0:04:54.880
a 110 million subscribers would surely

0:04:53.280,0:04:57.759
give the streaming platform

0:04:54.880,0:04:58.880
more you know firepower uh to make

0:04:57.759,0:05:02.240
important deals

0:04:58.880,0:05:04.400
but the biggest issue uh that you know

0:05:02.240,0:05:06.400
most people are concerned about is the

0:05:04.400,0:05:10.240
fact that on disney plus

0:05:06.400,0:05:13.360
everything is pretty family friendly uh

0:05:10.240,0:05:16.240
even their pg-13 stuff is

0:05:13.360,0:05:17.919
along the lines of you know the mcu so

0:05:16.240,0:05:20.960
it’s not

0:05:17.919,0:05:22.160
too over the top where obviously hulu

0:05:20.960,0:05:25.520
has a lot more

0:05:22.160,0:05:29.039
r-rated stuff and tvma stuff

0:05:25.520,0:05:30.000
so the concern is how do you merge

0:05:29.039,0:05:32.800
everything

0:05:30.000,0:05:34.400
and keep it still family-friendly for

0:05:32.800,0:05:36.880
those that want it

0:05:34.400,0:05:37.520
and keep you know the younger kids away

0:05:36.880,0:05:41.280
from the

0:05:37.520,0:05:44.479
more questionable content

0:05:41.280,0:05:47.759
so all both of the services are actually

0:05:44.479,0:05:49.919
owned by disney so it’s really not

0:05:47.759,0:05:52.400
a merger so to speak it’s just kind of

0:05:49.919,0:05:55.280
merging two different uh

0:05:52.400,0:05:56.160
you know streaming services in into one

0:05:55.280,0:05:58.560
so

0:05:56.160,0:06:00.080
um you know i guess we’ll we’ll see what

0:05:58.560,0:06:01.840
what ends up happening

0:06:00.080,0:06:03.199
um you know they were talking about

0:06:01.840,0:06:06.319
possibly maybe

0:06:03.199,0:06:09.440
uh password protecting you know to

0:06:06.319,0:06:11.039
to that when you log in you have to

0:06:09.440,0:06:12.639
you know log in with a password because

0:06:11.039,0:06:13.680
right now you have to log in with a

0:06:12.639,0:06:17.120
profile

0:06:13.680,0:06:19.120
but it’s not protected so i could log in

0:06:17.120,0:06:21.600
as you or you could log in as as

0:06:19.120,0:06:22.319
me so obviously they need to do some

0:06:21.600,0:06:24.880
tweaking

0:06:22.319,0:06:25.919
before it you know moves forward but

0:06:24.880,0:06:27.360
it’s been

0:06:25.919,0:06:29.600
out there a couple of different news

0:06:27.360,0:06:30.720
sources we’re talking about it so

0:06:29.600,0:06:32.160
obviously

0:06:30.720,0:06:33.600
and this doesn’t really get in the works

0:06:32.160,0:06:34.080
doesn’t come as much of a surprise

0:06:33.600,0:06:36.319
because

0:06:34.080,0:06:38.160
after uh disney picked up the 20th

0:06:36.319,0:06:41.520
century for its properties

0:06:38.160,0:06:43.680
they took a majority stake in hulu right

0:06:41.520,0:06:45.440
the unfortunate thing is here is that

0:06:43.680,0:06:48.319
hulu itself

0:06:45.440,0:06:49.360
was more of a consumer-friendly

0:06:48.319,0:06:52.400
clearinghouse

0:06:49.360,0:06:55.360
of networks and

0:06:52.400,0:06:55.840
with disney taking the majority stake in

0:06:55.360,0:06:58.160
there

0:06:55.840,0:06:59.039
it kind of negates the whole purpose of

0:06:58.160,0:07:01.039
it

0:06:59.039,0:07:02.479
and ultimately in the end it’s going to

0:07:01.039,0:07:05.360
be the users who

0:07:02.479,0:07:05.759
are going to get hurt from this because

0:07:05.360,0:07:08.319
you know

0:07:05.759,0:07:09.680
as any time anything gets gobbled up and

0:07:08.319,0:07:12.080
you have less competition

0:07:09.680,0:07:13.599
right there’s less incentive to keep the

0:07:12.080,0:07:15.680
prices reasonable

0:07:13.599,0:07:17.680
so what you’ll see probably happen is

0:07:15.680,0:07:19.919
you’ll see

0:07:17.680,0:07:21.759
disney merge this in probably in a

0:07:19.919,0:07:24.720
parental controlled area

0:07:21.759,0:07:26.080
of disney plus and you’re going to see

0:07:24.720,0:07:28.080
those prices go up because they’re not

0:07:26.080,0:07:29.039
going to give you hulu and disney plus

0:07:28.080,0:07:30.960
at the same price

0:07:29.039,0:07:32.160
right and right now there’s a lot of

0:07:30.960,0:07:34.240
deals like for instance

0:07:32.160,0:07:35.280
we get hulu for free because of our

0:07:34.240,0:07:36.800
cellular carrier

0:07:35.280,0:07:38.240
right and you’re gonna see all those

0:07:36.800,0:07:40.080
deals are gonna evaporate and you’re

0:07:38.240,0:07:44.240
gonna have to pay for it moving forward

0:07:40.080,0:07:46.000
right so it’s not unexpected but i don’t

0:07:44.240,0:07:49.440
think it’s going to turn out well for

0:07:46.000,0:07:49.440
the end users in this case

0:07:49.520,0:07:56.639
tell us about spoonful of sugar so

0:07:53.039,0:07:57.360
uh this is actually a story that that he

0:07:56.639,0:08:00.800
has shared

0:07:57.360,0:08:01.759
many times uh i happen to be friends on

0:08:00.800,0:08:05.120
facebook

0:08:01.759,0:08:05.680
uh with jeffrey sherman um he happens to

0:08:05.120,0:08:09.039
be

0:08:05.680,0:08:12.240
the son of uh bob sherman who

0:08:09.039,0:08:16.240
is part of uh half of the

0:08:12.240,0:08:19.120
writing team of the sherman brothers who

0:08:16.240,0:08:20.240
robert and richard who were also known

0:08:19.120,0:08:22.240
as dick and bob

0:08:20.240,0:08:23.280
where they penned many of the classics

0:08:22.240,0:08:25.919
heard in

0:08:23.280,0:08:26.960
mary poppins the jungle book aristocats

0:08:25.919,0:08:30.080
and more

0:08:26.960,0:08:33.039
disney theme park fans will recognize

0:08:30.080,0:08:35.200
one little spark it’s a small world and

0:08:33.039,0:08:35.599
there’s a great big beautiful tomorrow

0:08:35.200,0:08:37.760
and

0:08:35.599,0:08:38.800
the tiki room song so those were all

0:08:37.760,0:08:41.519
penned so

0:08:38.800,0:08:43.039
so if you’ve been to disney or watched

0:08:41.519,0:08:46.160
any disney movies

0:08:43.039,0:08:49.279
you’ve heard a sherman brothers song

0:08:46.160,0:08:52.560
um but what you might not know is that

0:08:49.279,0:08:54.720
his uh bob son jeffrey is the reason

0:08:52.560,0:08:57.120
that the song spoon full of sugar was

0:08:54.720,0:09:00.240
written and what’s kind of cool is

0:08:57.120,0:09:02.480
again he’s shared the story uh

0:09:00.240,0:09:03.600
a number of times on on facebook about

0:09:02.480,0:09:06.320
how uh

0:09:03.600,0:09:08.080
you know he he kind of helped uh you

0:09:06.320,0:09:11.680
know with with this song

0:09:08.080,0:09:13.600
and he just posted about it um a couple

0:09:11.680,0:09:15.600
of days ago and now it’s just kind of

0:09:13.600,0:09:17.839
blown up and gone viral

0:09:15.600,0:09:20.000
uh before we started filming i was

0:09:17.839,0:09:23.680
actually looking and he just posted

0:09:20.000,0:09:27.920
um so this article uh came from

0:09:23.680,0:09:30.519
uh inside the insidethemagic.net

0:09:27.920,0:09:31.680
but it was actually also featured on

0:09:30.519,0:09:34.399
today.com

0:09:31.680,0:09:35.519
so the today show did a little blurb on

0:09:34.399,0:09:38.959
it too so it’s

0:09:35.519,0:09:40.640
it’s kind of blown up um you know just

0:09:38.959,0:09:44.640
in the last couple of days

0:09:40.640,0:09:47.279
so he explains you know the story so his

0:09:44.640,0:09:49.440
his dad and his uncle are writing the

0:09:47.279,0:09:52.320
various songs for mary poppins

0:09:49.440,0:09:53.279
and there’s this one song that they both

0:09:52.320,0:09:56.640
love

0:09:53.279,0:10:00.080
and um julie

0:09:56.640,0:10:00.640
andrews you know is there in the middle

0:10:00.080,0:10:02.000
of

0:10:00.640,0:10:03.920
you know kind of filming some of the

0:10:02.000,0:10:05.680
stuff and she says

0:10:03.920,0:10:08.000
and she tells walt disney you know i

0:10:05.680,0:10:10.000
really don’t like this this one song

0:10:08.000,0:10:11.360
everything else kind of flows this one

0:10:10.000,0:10:12.800
song i don’t like

0:10:11.360,0:10:15.040
and it just so happened that it was a

0:10:12.800,0:10:16.399
song that the two brothers

0:10:15.040,0:10:18.640
really liked so they’re like all right

0:10:16.399,0:10:21.279
we need to come up with another song

0:10:18.640,0:10:21.920
and they couldn’t think of anything and

0:10:21.279,0:10:24.320
this was

0:10:21.920,0:10:26.160
and he says that you know when i was a

0:10:24.320,0:10:27.440
kid they were rolling out the vaccine

0:10:26.160,0:10:31.040
for polio

0:10:27.440,0:10:33.839
and we were given uh we were given it at

0:10:31.040,0:10:36.640
school and they put it on a sugar cube

0:10:33.839,0:10:37.680
so when he had gone home uh that day

0:10:36.640,0:10:39.680
from school

0:10:37.680,0:10:41.360
his dad was there and he had had a rough

0:10:39.680,0:10:42.800
day and he said oh

0:10:41.360,0:10:45.360
you know how was how was your day at

0:10:42.800,0:10:46.560
school and he’s like oh i got my polio

0:10:45.360,0:10:48.240
vaccine

0:10:46.560,0:10:49.680
and he was like wait a second but you

0:10:48.240,0:10:51.680
hate shots so

0:10:49.680,0:10:52.800
you know part of the the story he

0:10:51.680,0:10:55.839
explains that

0:10:52.800,0:10:57.920
he he you know hated shots

0:10:55.839,0:11:00.000
and he would like run and hide from the

0:10:57.920,0:11:03.600
nurses so of course his dad was kind

0:11:00.000,0:11:05.600
of shocked how did you get the vaccine

0:11:03.600,0:11:07.519
and they were like oh they just put it

0:11:05.600,0:11:10.240
with some sugar and we just had to eat

0:11:07.519,0:11:12.880
it and he just went

0:11:10.240,0:11:14.160
hold on i gotta call your uncle and

0:11:12.880,0:11:17.040
that’s how they came

0:11:14.160,0:11:19.120
up with the spoonful of sugar helps the

0:11:17.040,0:11:22.320
medicine go down

0:11:19.120,0:11:23.600
so it was again he shared the story

0:11:22.320,0:11:25.600
you know couple times throughout the

0:11:23.600,0:11:28.800
years but obviously

0:11:25.600,0:11:29.519
in you know now with all the different

0:11:28.800,0:11:32.399
vaccine

0:11:29.519,0:11:32.959
informations you know coming out and and

0:11:32.399,0:11:36.240
whatnot

0:11:32.959,0:11:38.079
he was you know basically saying hey if

0:11:36.240,0:11:39.600
you can do something take it with some

0:11:38.079,0:11:42.399
sugar we’re all

0:11:39.600,0:11:44.480
in this one small world together we need

0:11:42.399,0:11:47.279
to be safe for everybody

0:11:44.480,0:11:49.920
and you know gave a little story how his

0:11:47.279,0:11:53.120
experience kind of

0:11:49.920,0:11:54.720
paved the way to this iconic uh song

0:11:53.120,0:11:57.040
from mary poppins so

0:11:54.720,0:11:59.680
that’s kind of cute yeah you know this

0:11:57.040,0:12:02.399
is the time that we need stuff like that

0:11:59.680,0:12:04.079
some throwbacks to a simpler more

0:12:02.399,0:12:06.079
innocent error

0:12:04.079,0:12:07.839
you know and the reassurance that you

0:12:06.079,0:12:09.279
know we’ve we’ve kind of gone through

0:12:07.839,0:12:10.720
this sort of thing before

0:12:09.279,0:12:12.560
right and we’ve gotten through it and

0:12:10.720,0:12:14.639
we’re going to get through it again

0:12:12.560,0:12:16.560
yeah let’s let’s do it all as a team

0:12:14.639,0:12:19.200
folks we’re all the same team here and

0:12:16.560,0:12:20.480
yeah you know we’ll get through it so

0:12:19.200,0:12:22.639
that’s kind of a cute story

0:12:20.480,0:12:24.560
yeah so again it was it was really cool

0:12:22.639,0:12:25.920
that you know again like i said because

0:12:24.560,0:12:28.079
i’ve been

0:12:25.920,0:12:30.560
friends with him on facebook for years

0:12:28.079,0:12:33.680
i’ve heard the story before so it wasn’t

0:12:30.560,0:12:36.399
but now to hear how all of a sudden

0:12:33.680,0:12:38.480
it kind of picked up momentum you know

0:12:36.399,0:12:40.079
it was kind of cool

0:12:38.480,0:12:42.160
that was all we had for our disney

breaking the internet on

0:14:12.000,0:14:16.079
a almost weekly basis between the

0:14:14.160,0:14:18.399
live-action introductions of major

0:14:16.079,0:14:19.360
characters and the the countless

0:14:18.399,0:14:21.839
connections and

0:14:19.360,0:14:22.639
and pieces of lore and obviously along

0:14:21.839,0:14:25.760
the way

0:14:22.639,0:14:29.279
there’s the those lovable moments

0:14:25.760,0:14:30.000
uh with grogo or baby yoda or the child

0:14:29.279,0:14:33.120
whatever you

0:14:30.000,0:14:36.320
you know still want to call him um

0:14:33.120,0:14:38.000
and obviously one of the you know more

0:14:36.320,0:14:39.839
adorable instances

0:14:38.000,0:14:41.120
happened in the 12th episode that was

0:14:39.839,0:14:43.519
called the heist

0:14:41.120,0:14:44.160
where we saw baby yoda stealing and

0:14:43.519,0:14:47.120
eating

0:14:44.160,0:14:47.600
and then of course throwing up a package

0:14:47.120,0:14:50.639
of

0:14:47.600,0:14:54.320
macarons from another child

0:14:50.639,0:14:58.480
um and obviously that had uh

0:14:54.320,0:15:00.560
fans you know smitten after that um

0:14:58.480,0:15:01.920
and so what was kind of funny was there

0:15:00.560,0:15:05.120
was a video

0:15:01.920,0:15:05.839
that was posted on a popular youtube

0:15:05.120,0:15:09.760
channel

0:15:05.839,0:15:13.440
uh where it was actually uh john favreau

0:15:09.760,0:15:17.360
was with a chef and they were making

0:15:13.440,0:15:18.880
macarons um and he was kind of giving

0:15:17.360,0:15:22.240
you know little behind the scenes

0:15:18.880,0:15:24.399
uh stories about the episode uh

0:15:22.240,0:15:26.320
and he had said josh uh their prop

0:15:24.399,0:15:28.800
master came to us and was asking

0:15:26.320,0:15:30.399
what do these cookies look like so he

0:15:28.800,0:15:31.360
john had said well if you look at the

0:15:30.399,0:15:33.759
very end of the

0:15:31.360,0:15:37.040
episode under the credits they always

0:15:33.759,0:15:38.800
like to include the production art

0:15:37.040,0:15:40.320
and that’s been something that we’ve

0:15:38.800,0:15:44.399
always enjoyed watching

0:15:40.320,0:15:46.000
after each episode um so he said

0:15:44.399,0:15:47.519
you know when they were first looking at

0:15:46.000,0:15:49.120
him they weren’t really sure

0:15:47.519,0:15:51.519
and then he was like well i kind of want

0:15:49.120,0:15:53.360
him to be blue like it was made from

0:15:51.519,0:15:55.519
from blue milk so something kind of

0:15:53.360,0:15:57.519
weird and unusual

0:15:55.519,0:15:59.440
and that’s when he kind of started

0:15:57.519,0:16:01.920
baking macarons

0:15:59.440,0:16:02.880
and you know not the full macaron but

0:16:01.920,0:16:04.480
just kind of

0:16:02.880,0:16:06.240
part of it because i guess it’s usually

0:16:04.480,0:16:10.240
made like a sandwich

0:16:06.240,0:16:12.720
so they just made part of it um and

0:16:10.240,0:16:14.079
favreau then you know basically uh says

0:16:12.720,0:16:17.040
that he apologized

0:16:14.079,0:16:18.880
saying that you know for this elaborate

0:16:17.040,0:16:22.160
cookie because so many

0:16:18.880,0:16:24.639
um fans when they see something uh

0:16:22.160,0:16:26.639
you know the the kids want to either eat

0:16:24.639,0:16:27.680
that or make something and macarons

0:16:26.639,0:16:29.920
happen to be

0:16:27.680,0:16:31.040
kind of expensive because it’s it’s made

0:16:29.920,0:16:34.959
with almond

0:16:31.040,0:16:36.639
powder and stuff um so

0:16:34.959,0:16:38.399
uh you know so then they were gonna try

0:16:36.639,0:16:40.000
and go with like a cheaper cookie but

0:16:38.399,0:16:40.880
then you know it just didn’t work so

0:16:40.000,0:16:43.600
they had to

0:16:40.880,0:16:44.240
you know go with the more uh expensive

0:16:43.600,0:16:46.320
one

0:16:44.240,0:16:47.440
uh and he said obviously you know the

0:16:46.320,0:16:49.040
one that they made

0:16:47.440,0:16:50.800
really didn’t have any flavor but nobody

0:16:49.040,0:16:53.440
was gonna be

0:16:50.800,0:16:54.000
but it needed to look you know really

0:16:53.440,0:16:55.920
good

0:16:54.000,0:16:57.839
um you know and then they talked about

0:16:55.920,0:16:59.600
um you know the rest of the episode and

0:16:57.839,0:17:00.240
obviously we know that carl weathers was

0:16:59.600,0:17:02.880
the one

0:17:00.240,0:17:04.000
that directed that one um and when he

0:17:02.880,0:17:05.760
had read the script

0:17:04.000,0:17:07.520
he actually went to john and said you

0:17:05.760,0:17:10.000
need to put more baby in there

0:17:07.520,0:17:10.959
you know so he’s a big fan of baby so

0:17:10.000,0:17:12.959
that’s why we got

0:17:10.959,0:17:15.520
you know with everything else that was

0:17:12.959,0:17:18.079
going on in that episode we got

0:17:15.520,0:17:19.199
you know a lot of baby yoda funny parts

0:17:18.079,0:17:23.120
with him you know

0:17:19.199,0:17:23.120
when when they’re racing away

0:17:23.760,0:17:29.360
and things like that so um

0:17:26.799,0:17:31.280
you know so it was a cute little story

0:17:29.360,0:17:33.679
and you know so if you want to learn how

0:17:31.280,0:17:36.160
to make some macarons not macaroons

0:17:33.679,0:17:37.840
because macaroons are made with coconut

0:17:36.160,0:17:41.360
and macarons are made with

0:17:37.840,0:17:44.640
almonds so there is a key difference

0:17:41.360,0:17:45.520
there is well and this sort of goes in

0:17:44.640,0:17:48.559
line with

0:17:45.520,0:17:51.600
the i don’t know trend that disney has

0:17:48.559,0:17:53.039
has had since quarantine where they’ve

0:17:51.600,0:17:56.400
been giving out

0:17:53.039,0:17:58.080
yes true recipes for the various

0:17:56.400,0:18:00.000
park things and different things like

0:17:58.080,0:18:03.120
that so now you have a

0:18:00.000,0:18:07.280
uh a star wars yeah i don’t know

0:18:03.120,0:18:08.640
dessert delight recipe i don’t know

0:18:07.280,0:18:10.640
they said they don’t have any taste so i

0:18:08.640,0:18:12.080
guess they don’t taste bad then right

0:18:10.640,0:18:15.120
well or maybe the ones that

0:18:12.080,0:18:16.160
they made you know like if you make the

0:18:15.120,0:18:17.840
real recipe

0:18:16.160,0:18:19.600
maybe they give you the recipe to make

0:18:17.840,0:18:23.120
them taste right

0:18:19.600,0:18:25.919
right right yeah so so what is the

0:18:23.120,0:18:27.280
real reason that george lucas sold star

0:18:25.919,0:18:29.360
wars it wasn’t just the money

0:18:27.280,0:18:31.120
it wasn’t just the money actually

0:18:29.360,0:18:32.799
although that was a very good reason he

0:18:31.120,0:18:34.720
he made a whole lot of money so

0:18:32.799,0:18:36.960
obviously george lucas

0:18:34.720,0:18:39.039
made history when he sold the star wars

0:18:36.960,0:18:42.160
brand and the rest of lucasfilm

0:18:39.039,0:18:44.480
to the walt disney company in the

0:18:42.160,0:18:46.880
landmark sale gave disney the rights

0:18:44.480,0:18:49.360
to the most popular and influential

0:18:46.880,0:18:52.559
piece of fiction of the last century

0:18:49.360,0:18:53.600
and many people speculated exactly why

0:18:52.559,0:18:56.400
he decided

0:18:53.600,0:18:58.320
to sell off his most profitable venture

0:18:56.400,0:18:59.280
and now it seems some answers have come

0:18:58.320,0:19:02.600
to light

0:18:59.280,0:19:03.919
uh so this article came from giant

0:19:02.600,0:19:08.000
freakingrobot.com

0:19:03.919,0:19:10.000
that’s such a cool jj abrams

0:19:08.000,0:19:11.600
yeah it’s his production company oh okay

0:19:10.000,0:19:13.919
makes sense then um so

0:19:11.600,0:19:14.960
in the new star wars archives book that

0:19:13.919,0:19:17.280
we talked about

0:19:14.960,0:19:19.440
a couple of weeks ago too it seems that

0:19:17.280,0:19:20.480
george had revealed that his real

0:19:19.440,0:19:22.799
motivation

0:19:20.480,0:19:23.520
behind the sale of lucasfilms in star

0:19:22.799,0:19:27.039
wars

0:19:23.520,0:19:30.320
was his family he said i was 69

0:19:27.039,0:19:32.240
um and so the question was am i going to

0:19:30.320,0:19:34.480
keep doing this for the rest of my life

0:19:32.240,0:19:36.640
do i want to go through this again and

0:19:34.480,0:19:39.280
finally i decided i’d rather raise my

0:19:36.640,0:19:41.440
daughter and enjoy life for a while

0:19:39.280,0:19:43.840
so george was actually planning to begin

0:19:41.440,0:19:45.679
work on another star wars trilogy

0:19:43.840,0:19:48.320
that would have taken place after the

0:19:45.679,0:19:51.120
events of star wars

0:19:48.320,0:19:53.360
episode 6 return of the jedi so

0:19:51.120,0:19:54.640
according to lucas the way he made the

0:19:53.360,0:19:56.960
star wars films

0:19:54.640,0:19:57.840
would it have would have taken an entire

0:19:56.960,0:19:59.679
decade

0:19:57.840,0:20:02.720
he says it takes ten years to make a

0:19:59.679,0:20:06.559
trilogy episodes one through three

0:20:02.720,0:20:09.200
uh went from 1995 to 2005.

0:20:06.559,0:20:10.720
he had uh so he said when he was

0:20:09.200,0:20:14.080
planning to start

0:20:10.720,0:20:15.120
it would have been 2012 and he just

0:20:14.080,0:20:18.400
didn’t want to be

0:20:15.120,0:20:19.520
making movies for for that long is

0:20:18.400,0:20:21.919
really kind of

0:20:19.520,0:20:23.280
you know what it came down to he said

0:20:21.919,0:20:26.000
i’ve been you know spent

0:20:23.280,0:20:27.760
my life creating star wars for 40 years

0:20:26.000,0:20:29.919
and i’m giving it up

0:20:27.760,0:20:30.799
uh he said giving it up was very very

0:20:29.919,0:20:33.679
painful but

0:20:30.799,0:20:34.000
it was the right thing to do um he said

0:20:33.679,0:20:36.240
while

0:20:34.000,0:20:38.240
he shared his original ideas obviously

0:20:36.240,0:20:41.200
for the next trilogy with disney

0:20:38.240,0:20:42.000
obviously we know disney kind of said

0:20:41.200,0:20:45.280
nope

0:20:42.000,0:20:47.280
we’re doing our our own thing um so now

0:20:45.280,0:20:49.760
george is actually more focused on his

0:20:47.280,0:20:51.679
film legacy and preservation

0:20:49.760,0:20:53.280
and that includes helping to build a

0:20:51.679,0:20:56.240
museum

0:20:53.280,0:20:58.400
the lucas museum of narrative art and

0:20:56.240,0:21:00.559
making sure that future generations

0:20:58.400,0:21:02.720
understand the power and legacy of the

0:21:00.559,0:21:06.400
art so maybe one day we’ll

0:21:02.720,0:21:08.400
get to see what his vision of star wars

0:21:06.400,0:21:09.679
the next trilogy you know was supposed

0:21:08.400,0:21:12.080
to be maybe it’ll be

0:21:09.679,0:21:13.120
you know an exhibit in in the museum you

0:21:12.080,0:21:14.559
never know

0:21:13.120,0:21:16.159
it’s hard to believe that he’s

0:21:14.559,0:21:17.360
interested in preserving the legacy of

0:21:16.159,0:21:20.000
his films after he

0:21:17.360,0:21:21.840
butchered them with the uh you know the

0:21:20.000,0:21:23.840
remake of the original trilogy

0:21:21.840,0:21:25.120
but we know why he did that because we

0:21:23.840,0:21:26.640
talked about that

0:21:25.120,0:21:28.320
a couple of weeks ago because of course

0:21:26.640,0:21:32.480
that was in this book too

0:21:28.320,0:21:34.240
right no it’s not it’s not it stopped

0:21:32.480,0:21:36.799
being his movie

0:21:34.240,0:21:38.080
when he released it okay you release it

0:21:36.799,0:21:41.039
it goes out to the public

0:21:38.080,0:21:42.799
it was put in the library of congress

0:21:41.039,0:21:44.159
you have no right to go in there and

0:21:42.799,0:21:47.440
touch up the mona lisa

0:21:44.159,0:21:50.559
after you’ve you’ve finished the work

0:21:47.440,0:21:51.760
but how do you know he didn’t he didn’t

0:21:50.559,0:21:54.480
want

0:21:51.760,0:21:56.080
go back and fix the mona lisa pretty

0:21:54.480,0:21:56.400
sure he didn’t how do you know were you

0:21:56.080,0:22:00.320
there

0:21:56.400,0:22:01.520
he was dead that’s kind of terminal at

0:22:00.320,0:22:03.679
that point right

0:22:01.520,0:22:05.760
but you don’t know you might have had

0:22:03.679,0:22:07.600
like five versions of the mona lisa

0:22:05.760,0:22:08.960
he’s commissioned to do a work he does

0:22:07.600,0:22:10.240
the work he hands it off he doesn’t

0:22:08.960,0:22:13.280
model whatever

0:22:10.240,0:22:16.480
whatever so okay so

0:22:13.280,0:22:19.200
it wasn’t the money right okay we all

0:22:16.480,0:22:22.400
believe that right

0:22:19.200,0:22:24.080
so uh a couple minutes uh

0:22:22.400,0:22:26.000
just i want to dedicate a couple minutes

0:22:24.080,0:22:28.480
to our mando moments

0:22:26.000,0:22:29.440
so spoiler spoiler spoiler if you

0:22:28.480,0:22:33.919

0:22:40.159,0:22:43.679
20 minutes of the show if you want stop

0:22:42.080,0:22:46.159
it was an awesome episode

0:22:43.679,0:22:47.280
uh what do i got one two three four five

0:22:46.159,0:22:50.400
six things today

0:22:47.280,0:22:52.480
oh wow dark troopers

0:22:50.400,0:22:54.640
i was right that’s all i had to say

0:22:52.480,0:22:58.799
about those okay

0:22:54.640,0:23:00.880
boob is back yes not only is boba back

0:22:58.799,0:23:02.480
he still got slave one after all these

0:23:00.880,0:23:05.679
years

0:23:02.480,0:23:10.080
which is more than um amanda

0:23:05.679,0:23:13.120
can say after this episode um

0:23:10.080,0:23:15.280
django is officially mandalorian

0:23:13.120,0:23:16.960
yeah but the rest all this he was he was

0:23:15.280,0:23:20.000
a mandalorian in

0:23:16.960,0:23:23.280
in legacy non-canon uh

0:23:20.000,0:23:25.440
then in canon he was accused

0:23:23.280,0:23:27.120
really of by a corrupt politician of

0:23:25.440,0:23:29.360
being just a thug

0:23:27.120,0:23:30.400
but now he is a mandalorian so that’s

0:23:29.360,0:23:33.600
that’s that was

0:23:30.400,0:23:36.640
huge and now he’s on the team yep

0:23:33.600,0:23:40.000
so apparently uh we’re building uh

0:23:36.640,0:23:43.200
jen’s 11. because he’s not ocean

0:23:40.000,0:23:44.880
right right didn’t what then then jaren

0:23:43.200,0:23:48.159
sorry dean’s 11 den’s 11

0:23:44.880,0:23:49.600
right sure um the best guar spear

0:23:48.159,0:23:52.960
survives

0:23:49.600,0:23:54.080
and more importantly the gear shift ball

0:23:52.960,0:23:57.120
survives

0:23:54.080,0:23:58.960
that was so sad too so that’s so his

0:23:57.120,0:24:02.080
his ship gets blown up and there’s

0:23:58.960,0:24:05.039
literally nothing it’s basically

0:24:02.080,0:24:06.640
you know dust right right and he’s

0:24:05.039,0:24:08.320
sifting through and he finds the ball

0:24:06.640,0:24:10.000
which plays a huge role

0:24:08.320,0:24:12.080
and you know another bonding moment in

0:24:10.000,0:24:14.240
the beginning his little father-son

0:24:12.080,0:24:15.520
bonding moment but the spear the best

0:24:14.240,0:24:16.799
guard spear that he got in the last

0:24:15.520,0:24:19.360
episode

0:24:16.799,0:24:21.840
that survives which clearly sets up a a

0:24:19.360,0:24:25.919
reunion with

0:24:21.840,0:24:27.760
baby yoda who is uh was invited to stay

0:24:25.919,0:24:31.360
with the imperials for a little while

0:24:27.760,0:24:34.640
as their guest right um and

0:24:31.360,0:24:35.520
uh a showdown probably with uh moth

0:24:34.640,0:24:37.919
gideon

0:24:35.520,0:24:39.679
and the dark saber he’s gonna fight him

0:24:37.919,0:24:41.679
with the spear oh yeah

0:24:39.679,0:24:43.600
i take the dark saber over the spear any

0:24:41.679,0:24:46.880
day

0:24:43.600,0:24:47.679
yeah uh what else oh so dark side baby

0:24:46.880,0:24:49.520
yoda

0:24:47.679,0:24:50.960
he was totally dark side after he was

0:24:49.520,0:24:52.960
invited to stay

0:24:50.960,0:24:54.240
he’s force choking people he’s throwing

0:24:52.960,0:24:56.960
them around it was

0:24:54.240,0:24:58.400
awesome uh he’s not afraid to use the

0:24:56.960,0:25:00.720
force at this point in time

0:24:58.400,0:25:02.400
right uh he’s overcome his whatever

0:25:00.720,0:25:05.520
inhibitions he had

0:25:02.400,0:25:07.440
however he does have to take a nap to

0:25:05.520,0:25:10.960
take a nap poor little thing

0:25:07.440,0:25:11.360
um so he’s not all that powerful just

0:25:10.960,0:25:13.919
yet

0:25:11.360,0:25:14.960
right he does seem to recognize the dark

0:25:13.919,0:25:17.919
saber or at least

0:25:14.960,0:25:18.320
a lightsaber so he he goes to reach for

0:25:17.919,0:25:20.240
that

0:25:18.320,0:25:21.360
and he’s familiar with those from his

0:25:20.240,0:25:23.679
training apparently

0:25:21.360,0:25:25.600
right and then the overriding question

0:25:23.679,0:25:27.360
is who did he contact when he was

0:25:25.600,0:25:30.559
meditating on the stone

0:25:27.360,0:25:31.520
luke who’s left you got luke you got

0:25:30.559,0:25:36.000
leia

0:25:31.520,0:25:38.159
possibly calcastus possibly ezra bridger

0:25:36.000,0:25:39.520
so who’s going to show up right and

0:25:38.159,0:25:42.720
they’re they’re the good guys

0:25:39.520,0:25:44.240
right what bad guys are out right right

0:25:42.720,0:25:45.360
because the way this show’s going you’re

0:25:44.240,0:25:46.400
going to get to the bad guys before you

0:25:45.360,0:25:49.200
get to the good guys

0:25:46.400,0:25:51.600
probably unfortunately uh the razor

0:25:49.200,0:25:54.720
crest

0:25:51.600,0:25:57.279
yeah not so much totally gone

0:25:54.720,0:25:58.080
the shame after he you know it he beat

0:25:57.279,0:25:59.679
it up

0:25:58.080,0:26:01.360
got it back rebuilt the whole thing and

0:25:59.679,0:26:02.640
now it’s gone got hit by an orbital

0:26:01.360,0:26:05.840
bombardment from

0:26:02.640,0:26:06.400
uh the cruiser yeah um which is ironic

0:26:05.840,0:26:08.320
because

0:26:06.400,0:26:09.760
stormtroopers in this episode are five

0:26:08.320,0:26:11.600
feet away from someone who can’t shoot

0:26:09.760,0:26:12.799
them but somehow they can hit a speck of

0:26:11.600,0:26:16.159
dust from orbit

0:26:12.799,0:26:18.400
with the cruiser um so

0:26:16.159,0:26:20.559
interesting uh the other thing i noticed

0:26:18.400,0:26:22.480
in that scene was that boba fett flew

0:26:20.559,0:26:25.360
really close to the cruiser and nobody

0:26:22.480,0:26:28.159
shot at him yeah yeah which makes me

0:26:25.360,0:26:29.679
wonder if there’s a reason for that

0:26:28.159,0:26:31.200
because i don’t think slave 1 is all

0:26:29.679,0:26:34.070
that stealthy right

0:26:31.200,0:26:36.799
right so maybe there’s a fix in there

0:26:34.070,0:26:39.279
[Music]

0:26:36.799,0:26:41.039
and the last thing is ocean’s eleven so

0:26:39.279,0:26:41.919
apparently we’re building the a team

0:26:41.039,0:26:44.480
here

0:26:41.919,0:26:45.440
once again which we did last season with

0:26:44.480,0:26:48.720
different people right

0:26:45.440,0:26:52.080
right so we have uh

0:26:48.720,0:26:54.159
mando we have boba fett we have

0:26:52.080,0:26:55.919
whatever mignon way’s character is i can

0:26:54.159,0:26:57.520
never remember her right

0:26:55.919,0:26:59.679
uh now we’re going to go break somebody

0:26:57.520,0:27:01.360
out of prison right we’re probably going

0:26:59.679,0:27:04.159
to get cara doing to help us

0:27:01.360,0:27:05.440
at least not break them out because now

0:27:04.159,0:27:07.760
she’s the law

0:27:05.440,0:27:08.960
right right so she’ll probably help in

0:27:07.760,0:27:11.039
in the finale there

0:27:08.960,0:27:12.159
right and maybe when we break what’s his

0:27:11.039,0:27:14.960
name out of jail

0:27:12.159,0:27:16.559
we’ll bring a couple of his friends too

0:27:14.960,0:27:17.279
because that’ll kind of be like oh well

0:27:16.559,0:27:20.240
if you

0:27:17.279,0:27:22.080
take me you gotta take me we have two

0:27:20.240,0:27:24.000
episodes left this season i think so

0:27:22.080,0:27:26.880
yeah so we got a jailbreak episode and

0:27:24.000,0:27:26.880
then the finale

0:27:27.760,0:27:31.440
it’s i mean i suspect we’re probably

0:27:29.760,0:27:32.480
gonna see boca tan come back for the

0:27:31.440,0:27:34.159
finale

0:27:32.480,0:27:36.080
i don’t know if we’re gonna see ahsoka

0:27:34.159,0:27:38.000
come back would be kind of cool

0:27:36.080,0:27:39.440
but i think they’re setting she appeared

0:27:38.000,0:27:41.520
i think more to set up her own

0:27:39.440,0:27:42.880
her own show right so i don’t think

0:27:41.520,0:27:44.240
we’re gonna see her back this season she

0:27:42.880,0:27:46.960
might be back next season

0:27:44.240,0:27:49.120
okay uh so anyway that’s that was my

0:27:46.960,0:27:50.399
mando moments for this week my takeaways

0:27:49.120,0:27:52.559

0:29:25.520,0:29:31.440
they were going to be releasing

0:29:27.760,0:29:33.360

0:29:31.440,0:29:35.039
the same time that they were releasing

0:29:33.360,0:29:37.679
it to the theaters

0:29:35.039,0:29:38.480
and leaving it on hbo max for just the

0:29:37.679,0:29:41.520
month

0:29:38.480,0:29:46.080
well now it seems uh warner brothers

0:29:41.520,0:29:48.720

0:29:46.080,0:29:50.640

0:29:48.720,0:29:52.159
going to be doing the same

0:29:50.640,0:29:54.480
thing that they’re doing with wonder

0:29:52.159,0:29:55.039
woman that they’re gonna be doing with

0:29:54.480,0:29:58.159
all

movies was it 12 17 17 movies

0:30:01.919,0:30:05.200

0:30:04.640,0:30:07.760
going

0:30:05.200,0:30:09.840
to theaters so if you happen to live in

0:30:07.760,0:30:10.480
an area where your theaters are still

0:30:09.840,0:30:12.559
open

0:30:10.480,0:30:13.840
you are more than welcome to obviously

0:30:12.559,0:30:16.559
go and enjoy

0:30:13.840,0:30:18.320
the movie at the theater or you can

0:30:22.720,0:30:29.279
the movie will be streaming on hbo max

0:30:26.559,0:30:30.080
as well um and this was kind of

0:30:29.279,0:30:33.039
something that

0:30:30.080,0:30:33.919
we’ve been talking about for for a while

0:30:33.039,0:30:35.440
now with

0:30:33.919,0:30:37.679
you know what are the movie studios

0:30:35.440,0:30:39.600
going to be doing um

0:30:37.679,0:30:41.679
you know they’ve had so many months to

0:30:39.600,0:30:44.399
kind of figure something out and

0:30:41.679,0:30:46.240
you know they’ve been going back and

0:30:44.399,0:30:47.760
forth so many different times you know

0:30:46.240,0:30:49.120
disney did it as well

0:30:47.760,0:30:51.679
are we going to release it on disney

0:30:49.120,0:30:52.480
plus are we gonna you know hold off and

0:30:51.679,0:30:54.159
wait

0:30:52.480,0:30:55.840
you know back and forth back and forth

0:30:54.159,0:30:56.880
okay we’re gonna release it but now it’s

0:30:55.840,0:30:58.559
at a premium

0:30:56.880,0:31:00.559
but then they release certain things

0:30:58.559,0:31:02.640
that aren’t at a premium

0:31:00.559,0:31:04.240
so they kind of you know been teetering

0:31:02.640,0:31:05.600
back and forth and now warner brothers

0:31:04.240,0:31:09.279
finally said you know what

0:31:05.600,0:31:11.840
this is how we’re doing it for for 2021.

0:31:09.279,0:31:13.200
um so it’s various movies it’s uh

0:31:11.840,0:31:18.000
suicide squad

0:31:13.200,0:31:21.760
the matrix iv dune godzilla vs king kong

0:31:18.000,0:31:24.799
space jam a new legacy uh other films

0:31:21.760,0:31:26.480
are uh the little things um

0:31:24.799,0:31:28.240
tom and jerry i didn’t even know they

0:31:26.480,0:31:31.440
were doing that

0:31:28.240,0:31:32.399
mortal kombat those who wish me dead the

0:31:31.440,0:31:35.600
conjuring

0:31:32.399,0:31:38.960
in the heights um and

0:31:35.600,0:31:42.480
a whole you know a bunch of others uh

0:31:38.960,0:31:45.039
as well so it’s you know a a big lineup

0:31:42.480,0:31:46.399
you know kind of different genres of

0:31:45.039,0:31:49.600
film um

0:31:46.399,0:31:52.640
as well the uh

0:31:49.600,0:31:55.039
toby emrich who is the

0:31:52.640,0:31:56.640
warner brothers picture chairman was

0:31:55.039,0:31:58.480
quoted in the article

0:31:56.640,0:32:00.000
that came from the hollywood reporter

0:31:58.480,0:32:02.799
basically saying you know

0:32:00.000,0:32:03.840
it allows us to do a global release and

0:32:02.799,0:32:06.000
a national

0:32:03.840,0:32:08.000
national release and what we think is

0:32:06.000,0:32:10.720
going to be a checkerboard

0:32:08.000,0:32:11.919
uh theatrical market place for the bulk

0:32:10.720,0:32:14.399
of 2021.

0:32:11.919,0:32:15.679
we think that theaters you know some

0:32:14.399,0:32:18.159
theaters are gonna go

0:32:15.679,0:32:20.000
and open so consumers can go and there

0:32:18.159,0:32:22.399
were a lot of people

0:32:20.000,0:32:23.200
that are gonna choose to to stay home as

0:32:22.399,0:32:25.919
well

0:32:23.200,0:32:27.279
so it’s nice to see that you know

0:32:25.919,0:32:30.880
they’re kind of

0:32:27.279,0:32:34.159
making it you know available for for

0:32:30.880,0:32:36.320
whichever market you kind of fall into

0:32:34.159,0:32:38.480
well and and again this is not

0:32:36.320,0:32:40.000
unexpected

0:32:38.480,0:32:42.559
we’ve been talking about this for months

0:32:40.000,0:32:45.679
now that they need to figure out a way

0:32:42.559,0:32:48.159
to distribute their product and still

0:32:45.679,0:32:50.320
make money off

0:32:48.159,0:32:52.159
what i thought was interesting was as

0:32:50.320,0:32:55.279
soon as this announcement came out

0:32:52.159,0:32:58.399
right movie chains amc

0:32:55.279,0:33:00.000
and cinemark had a 15 drop in their

0:32:58.399,0:33:04.240
stock

0:33:00.000,0:33:05.840
so this is gonna hurt the movie theater

0:33:04.240,0:33:07.440
i don’t know how long this is going to

0:33:05.840,0:33:11.039
last uh if

0:33:07.440,0:33:13.440
if the studios find that this is

0:33:11.039,0:33:14.399
profitable and and to an agreeable

0:33:13.440,0:33:18.399
extent

0:33:14.399,0:33:21.600
this may be the future of movie releases

0:33:18.399,0:33:23.519
um direct to market here

0:33:21.600,0:33:24.880
you can make money off of it for sure

0:33:23.519,0:33:27.919
absolutely

0:33:24.880,0:33:30.960
and you’re not paying licensing you know

0:33:27.919,0:33:32.559
fees or marketing or anything like that

0:33:30.960,0:33:34.880
so there’s definitely advantages of it

0:33:32.559,0:33:36.399
to the studios but

0:33:34.880,0:33:38.480
i think it’s going to fundamentally

0:33:36.399,0:33:41.440
break the the

0:33:38.480,0:33:43.360
movie theater system that we have now

0:33:41.440,0:33:45.120
because there are movies that

0:33:43.360,0:33:47.440
really should be seen in the theater

0:33:45.120,0:33:47.919
absolutely they’re designed for it and i

0:33:47.440,0:33:50.159
think

0:33:47.919,0:33:51.360
movies like the matrix you mentioned

0:33:50.159,0:33:53.840
matrix is coming out

0:33:51.360,0:33:54.399
right i think movies like that star wars

0:33:53.840,0:33:56.480
i mean

0:33:54.399,0:33:57.919
you cannot not see star wars in a

0:33:56.480,0:34:00.880
theater right right

0:33:57.919,0:34:02.559
it’s just it’s made for it you know we

0:34:00.880,0:34:05.679
can sit at home with

0:34:02.559,0:34:07.919
a 65-inch 4k tv and in

0:34:05.679,0:34:08.879
7.1 dolby surround sound what are you

0:34:07.919,0:34:11.599
trying to say

0:34:08.879,0:34:12.639
blast it and get right a fantastic

0:34:11.599,0:34:15.760
effect but it’s not the

0:34:12.639,0:34:16.320
but it’s not the same right so we’ll see

0:34:15.760,0:34:19.679
i

0:34:16.320,0:34:20.399
i certainly hope that this move doesn’t

0:34:19.679,0:34:23.760
put

0:34:20.399,0:34:26.960
the movie theaters out of business

0:34:23.760,0:34:29.119
but i hope it’s a way for people to

0:34:26.960,0:34:32.879
still consume the the product out there

0:34:29.119,0:34:36.079
under very difficult circumstances

0:34:32.879,0:34:38.079
so tell us about elliot page so

0:34:36.079,0:34:40.320
elliott page will continue to play the

0:34:38.079,0:34:43.440
role of vanya hardgraves

0:34:40.320,0:34:46.800
in the umbrella academy and netflix

0:34:43.440,0:34:48.159
uh is uh it’s a netflix series it’s

0:34:46.800,0:34:50.399
actually been one of my

0:34:48.159,0:34:51.679
insightful pics and it’s a family of

0:34:50.399,0:34:53.919
superheroes

0:34:51.679,0:34:55.839
um that has become one of the streaming

0:34:53.919,0:34:58.880
services biggest hits

0:34:55.839,0:35:00.079
vanya happens to be a cisgender woman

0:34:58.880,0:35:02.320
whose super power

0:35:00.079,0:35:04.079
involves unleashing force through the

0:35:02.320,0:35:07.280
use of sounds

0:35:04.079,0:35:09.520
so as of right now there are no plans to

0:35:07.280,0:35:11.599
change the character’s gender so if

0:35:09.520,0:35:15.280
you’re not familiar

0:35:11.599,0:35:18.320
the actor was

0:35:15.280,0:35:19.359
uh had made an announcement earlier this

0:35:18.320,0:35:22.880
week

0:35:19.359,0:35:26.320
that he is a gender non-binary

0:35:22.880,0:35:29.680
transgendered person and had posted on

0:35:26.320,0:35:31.599
his social media about it um now

0:35:29.680,0:35:33.440
he happens to be the star of the

0:35:31.599,0:35:36.640
breakout film juno

0:35:33.440,0:35:39.760
also part of the x-men series um

0:35:36.640,0:35:43.440
and also part of the umbrella academy so

0:35:39.760,0:35:47.119
as of uh tuesday the umbrella academy’s

0:35:43.440,0:35:50.720
imdb page has actually already updated

0:35:47.119,0:35:51.520
their information they took out her dead

0:35:50.720,0:35:54.240
name which was

0:35:51.520,0:35:54.560
ellen if you didn’t know and changed it

0:35:54.240,0:35:57.920
to

0:35:54.560,0:35:58.720
elliott so now netflix is in the process

0:35:57.920,0:36:01.599
of

0:35:58.720,0:36:02.320
updating all of the movies that he was

0:36:01.599,0:36:04.960
in

0:36:02.320,0:36:05.760
to include elliott now so if you wanted

0:36:04.960,0:36:08.880
to search

0:36:05.760,0:36:10.000
by actor you’d be able to find all of

0:36:08.880,0:36:13.680
his movies

0:36:10.000,0:36:16.079
um obviously he made the announcement

0:36:13.680,0:36:17.280
and basically you know he had said i

0:36:16.079,0:36:20.240
have to do

0:36:17.280,0:36:20.720
you know what’s right for me and this is

0:36:20.240,0:36:22.880
who i

0:36:20.720,0:36:23.760
am i know there are some people that

0:36:22.880,0:36:28.400
aren’t as

0:36:23.760,0:36:31.040
fortunate to be able to come out and say

0:36:28.400,0:36:32.400
who they really are i hope you can

0:36:31.040,0:36:35.920
understand

0:36:32.400,0:36:39.280
um that i’m doing this because i need to

0:36:35.920,0:36:43.119
and he was obviously met with you know

0:36:39.280,0:36:46.480
so much love um and and support from

0:36:43.119,0:36:49.920
from you know from various people um

0:36:46.480,0:36:50.880
so you know then uh you know there were

0:36:49.920,0:36:54.000
a couple of people

0:36:50.880,0:36:55.599
um that were saying oh well maybe they

0:36:54.000,0:36:57.200
need to recast

0:36:55.599,0:36:59.760
you know and and not have a

0:36:57.200,0:37:02.240
transgendered person in this role

0:36:59.760,0:37:03.040
because the character isn’t transgender

0:37:02.240,0:37:05.359
and uh

0:37:03.040,0:37:06.560
glad actually had came out and said

0:37:05.359,0:37:09.280
trans actors

0:37:06.560,0:37:10.000
can and do play both trans and cisgender

0:37:09.280,0:37:12.079
characters

0:37:10.000,0:37:13.040
and i’m sure elliott will continue to be

0:37:12.079,0:37:15.119
brilliant in

0:37:13.040,0:37:18.160
the umbrella academy and many other

0:37:15.119,0:37:20.640
types of roles in his future

0:37:18.160,0:37:22.560
and the umbrella academy again centers

0:37:20.640,0:37:24.400
on a group of adopted siblings of

0:37:22.560,0:37:26.480
superheroes who

0:37:24.400,0:37:27.680
uh team up to solve the mystery of their

0:37:26.480,0:37:29.920
father’s death

0:37:27.680,0:37:30.720
while warding off potent the uh

0:37:29.920,0:37:33.680
potential

0:37:30.720,0:37:35.599
uh apocalypse uh the series just had its

0:37:33.680,0:37:36.480
second season that came out this past

0:37:35.599,0:37:39.040
summer

0:37:36.480,0:37:40.560
and in november netflix actually renewed

0:37:39.040,0:37:42.960
it for a third season

0:37:40.560,0:37:44.960
as well that’s interesting and i think

0:37:42.960,0:37:46.320
it’s it’s fantastic to see the kind of

0:37:44.960,0:37:48.640
support that came

0:37:46.320,0:37:50.320
forward you know for this decision here

0:37:48.640,0:37:52.480
and i think it’s

0:37:50.320,0:37:53.839
i think it’s monumental given where we

0:37:52.480,0:37:56.880
were you look

0:37:53.839,0:38:00.720
20 years ago yeah and and how how

0:37:56.880,0:38:02.240
far the equality movement has come in

0:38:00.720,0:38:03.839
that time it’s it’s got a ways to get it

0:38:02.240,0:38:05.040
still has a yeah i was just going to say

0:38:03.839,0:38:07.520
it still has a way to go

0:38:05.040,0:38:10.160
ways to go but the amount of progress

0:38:07.520,0:38:13.440
that’s been made in the last 20 years

0:38:10.160,0:38:15.839
is encouraging just to say the least and

0:38:13.440,0:38:17.839
you know and we were even talking about

0:38:15.839,0:38:20.640
what maybe even a year ago

0:38:17.839,0:38:20.880
about the whole dead name and right

0:38:20.640,0:38:23.920
right

0:38:20.880,0:38:26.000
you know and and netflix and imdb you

0:38:23.920,0:38:26.400
know they were trying to go through and

0:38:26.000,0:38:29.119
and

0:38:26.400,0:38:30.960
update various actors who had come

0:38:29.119,0:38:32.480
forward and saying this is my dead name

0:38:30.960,0:38:34.720
please don’t use it anymore

0:38:32.480,0:38:36.000
and now it’s you know he came out with

0:38:34.720,0:38:38.240
the comment and

0:38:36.000,0:38:40.400
there was no question about it netflix

0:38:38.240,0:38:42.079
is updating imdb

0:38:40.400,0:38:44.240
and there shouldn’t be anything right

0:38:42.079,0:38:46.000
exactly that you have a forward-thinking

0:38:44.240,0:38:48.000
organization like that that will

0:38:46.000,0:38:49.359
right that will without question take

0:38:48.000,0:38:50.160
care of that for you i think that’s

0:38:49.359,0:38:52.800
fantastic

0:38:50.160,0:38:54.160
yeah and that’s supportive of of those

0:38:52.800,0:38:57.839
who

0:38:54.160,0:38:59.280
have not found the opportunity to come

0:38:57.839,0:39:02.880
forward at this point in time

0:38:59.280,0:39:06.320
who who are still you know may still be

0:39:02.880,0:39:08.240
operating under duress

0:39:06.320,0:39:09.920
i’ll say you know whether it’s their

0:39:08.240,0:39:12.560
family or the press or

0:39:09.920,0:39:14.720
or whoever you know every time you see

0:39:12.560,0:39:16.560
an example of this where this

0:39:14.720,0:39:17.760
you know someone has an extraordinary

0:39:16.560,0:39:20.240
amount of courage to come

0:39:17.760,0:39:21.839
forward and they’re rewarded for that i

0:39:20.240,0:39:25.040
think is a fantastic thing

0:39:21.839,0:39:26.880
yeah so that was all we had for our

0:39:25.040,0:39:27.440

0:39:53.040,0:39:55.920
uh

0:39:53.599,0:39:57.520
for this week happens to be a show that

0:39:55.920,0:39:59.839
we both started

0:39:57.520,0:40:01.520
watching together when it came out and

0:39:59.839,0:40:04.800
we actually just finished

0:40:01.520,0:40:08.720
season one and it is the walking dead

0:40:04.800,0:40:09.520
world beyond um so the series is set in

0:40:08.720,0:40:12.160
nebraska

0:40:09.520,0:40:12.880
10 years after the zombie apocalypse has

0:40:12.160,0:40:14.720
started

0:40:12.880,0:40:15.920
and it features four teenage

0:40:14.720,0:40:19.040
protagonists

0:40:15.920,0:40:20.000
and focuses on the first generation to

0:40:19.040,0:40:22.720
come of age

0:40:20.000,0:40:24.560
in the apocalypse as we know it and some

0:40:22.720,0:40:25.280
will become heroes some will become

0:40:24.560,0:40:27.280
villains

0:40:25.280,0:40:28.720
and in the end all of them will be

0:40:27.280,0:40:32.160
changed forever

0:40:28.720,0:40:34.000
um and um you know so you see this

0:40:32.160,0:40:36.560
heroic group of teens kind of

0:40:34.000,0:40:39.440
sheltered from you know from the dangers

0:40:36.560,0:40:42.480
of everything and they decide to leave

0:40:39.440,0:40:45.040
their little safety haven

0:40:42.480,0:40:45.920
um to kind of go on a cross-country

0:40:45.040,0:40:49.119
journey

0:40:45.920,0:40:52.400
uh to find one of uh the fathers

0:40:49.119,0:40:53.359
of two of the girls uh to kind of save

0:40:52.400,0:40:56.319
the world

0:40:53.359,0:40:59.040
um it happens to be a spin-off series of

0:40:56.319,0:41:02.800
the walking dead it’s actually the third

0:40:59.040,0:41:05.760
spin-off from the walking dead um

0:41:02.800,0:41:06.000
and uh when they had announced that they

0:41:05.760,0:41:08.560
were

0:41:06.000,0:41:10.400
going to be doing this it was only going

0:41:08.560,0:41:11.440
they know that they’re only doing two

0:41:10.400,0:41:13.359
seasons of it so

0:41:11.440,0:41:15.119
it’s one of those we know what our

0:41:13.359,0:41:17.839
beginning is we know what our our

0:41:15.119,0:41:20.160
end is which i kind of like because

0:41:17.839,0:41:21.280
sometimes you start watching a show and

0:41:20.160,0:41:23.040
they’re getting into it and then all of

0:41:21.280,0:41:24.560
a sudden oh we’re canceled or uh we’re

0:41:23.040,0:41:25.200
not doing it anymore and they never

0:41:24.560,0:41:28.240
finally

0:41:25.200,0:41:30.319
get to that ending where with this we

0:41:28.240,0:41:33.599
know it’s just two seasons

0:41:30.319,0:41:35.359
uh 10 episodes each so

0:41:33.599,0:41:37.040
you know there’s going to be the

0:41:35.359,0:41:40.160
beginning middle and end

0:41:37.040,0:41:43.599
and you know we were kind of

0:41:40.160,0:41:45.839
not really sure it’s kind of

0:41:43.599,0:41:47.680
i guess sort of not really a kid’s

0:41:45.839,0:41:50.960
version of walking dead

0:41:47.680,0:41:51.920
maybe a teenage version of it because

0:41:50.960,0:41:55.040
obviously the the

0:41:51.920,0:41:56.319
zombies were thanks right you know they

0:41:55.040,0:41:58.800
really don’t know how to fight

0:41:56.319,0:42:00.839
very well they kind of push them out a

0:41:58.800,0:42:05.200
lot of cross-checking involved

0:42:00.839,0:42:08.000
yeah but it’s interesting to see because

0:42:05.200,0:42:09.760
they give you these like little hints of

0:42:08.000,0:42:12.880
things that you’re like

0:42:09.760,0:42:15.200
hmm what what’s this little twist

0:42:12.880,0:42:16.079
and what’s this little turn and there

0:42:15.200,0:42:18.480
were some

0:42:16.079,0:42:20.319
uh articles that were talking about okay

0:42:18.480,0:42:23.760
is rick gonna show up

0:42:20.319,0:42:26.000
in the second season because you kind of

0:42:23.760,0:42:27.520
figure out that the people that took him

0:42:26.000,0:42:30.960
away when

0:42:27.520,0:42:33.200
uh he had gotten hurt are the same

0:42:30.960,0:42:34.319
military kind of organization that are

0:42:33.200,0:42:37.359
in this so you’re

0:42:34.319,0:42:39.200
finding out a little bit more about them

0:42:37.359,0:42:41.280
so it’ll be interesting to see where

0:42:39.200,0:42:43.760
they weave

0:42:41.280,0:42:44.560
everything together so i think we both

0:42:43.760,0:42:47.680
enjoyed it

0:42:44.560,0:42:48.720
it you know you didn’t give up on it

0:42:47.680,0:42:49.599
because there were a couple of weeks

0:42:48.720,0:42:51.040
where you’re like

0:42:49.599,0:42:52.720
all right this kind of needs to change

0:42:51.040,0:42:55.359
but all in all

0:42:52.720,0:42:56.480
you liked it and i know i enjoyed it so

0:42:55.359,0:42:58.960
looking forward to

0:42:56.480,0:43:00.160
to whenever you know the second uh

0:42:58.960,0:43:03.520
season will come out

0:43:00.160,0:43:03.520
all right good pick thank you

0:43:04.690,0:43:10.240
[Applause]

0:43:06.880,0:43:11.839
so my pick this week is another space

0:43:10.240,0:43:12.800
documentary because i haven’t had enough

0:43:11.839,0:43:14.480
of those right

0:43:12.800,0:43:16.079
might as well keep a theme going right

0:43:14.480,0:43:18.160
uh well i like

0:43:16.079,0:43:19.760
i like watching them and seeing how

0:43:18.160,0:43:22.960
they’re different

0:43:19.760,0:43:23.760
so this week’s uh documentary was apollo

0:43:22.960,0:43:26.800
chronicles

0:43:23.760,0:43:29.760
on amazon prime featuring rare

0:43:26.800,0:43:31.839
archival footage and audio this epic

0:43:29.760,0:43:33.760
four-part mini-series documents one of

0:43:31.839,0:43:34.880
the greatest accomplishments of the 20th

0:43:33.760,0:43:38.160
century

0:43:34.880,0:43:41.040
but behind the seminal event is a moment

0:43:38.160,0:43:41.599
monumental story filled with incredible

0:43:41.040,0:43:45.119
drama

0:43:41.599,0:43:47.280
danger ingenuity and emotion the apollo

0:43:45.119,0:43:49.200
chronicles tells the story like it has

0:43:47.280,0:43:51.599
never been told before

0:43:49.200,0:43:53.359
participants family members historians

0:43:51.599,0:43:56.400
and other experts

0:43:53.359,0:43:58.640
paint a rich portrait of a story

0:43:56.400,0:44:00.480
that will have the audience immersed

0:43:58.640,0:44:02.720
from start to finish

0:44:00.480,0:44:04.079
and right in the first episode within

0:44:02.720,0:44:06.640
the first few minutes of the first

0:44:04.079,0:44:08.400
episode i learned something about

0:44:06.640,0:44:09.680
the apollo program that i had never

0:44:08.400,0:44:11.760
known okay

0:44:09.680,0:44:13.359
and i’m not going to say it here okay

0:44:11.760,0:44:15.760
because people sort of need to watch it

0:44:13.359,0:44:18.800
but it was a very surprising

0:44:15.760,0:44:19.200
anecdote that came out of that and and

0:44:18.800,0:44:22.640
that

0:44:19.200,0:44:25.680
seems to happen at least once in every

0:44:22.640,0:44:26.240
episode of these four episodes so

0:44:25.680,0:44:28.960
there’s

0:44:26.240,0:44:30.880
information that’s in there that’s

0:44:28.960,0:44:32.720
presented differently than other

0:44:30.880,0:44:34.000
documentaries but there’s information

0:44:32.720,0:44:36.800
that’s deeper than

0:44:34.000,0:44:38.079
other documentaries and i found it kind

0:44:36.800,0:44:40.800
of a refreshing

0:44:38.079,0:44:43.839
change from some of the standard boring

0:44:40.800,0:44:45.839
stock footage stuff that you see

0:44:43.839,0:44:47.359
they talk about something that’s

0:44:45.839,0:44:50.800
actually going to be featured

0:44:47.359,0:44:52.400
in our insights in the history podcast

0:44:50.800,0:44:55.760
that we’re working on

0:44:52.400,0:44:59.200
so that was kind of interesting to see

0:44:55.760,0:45:01.040
as well so it was it was kind of

0:44:59.200,0:45:02.800
you know different footage that was in

0:45:01.040,0:45:04.400
there and little behind the scenes stuff

0:45:02.800,0:45:07.760
they talked to some

0:45:04.400,0:45:11.200
industry experts they talked to the

0:45:07.760,0:45:13.040
uh um head astronomer at the franklin

0:45:11.200,0:45:13.839
institute which was interesting so that

0:45:13.040,0:45:16.079
kind of

0:45:13.839,0:45:17.440
a little local time a little home tie

0:45:16.079,0:45:19.359
there

0:45:17.440,0:45:21.119
and they talked to a number of other

0:45:19.359,0:45:22.640
experts

0:45:21.119,0:45:24.319
from the area but you found out

0:45:22.640,0:45:27.040
information from

0:45:24.319,0:45:29.680
that you didn’t know about the uh soviet

0:45:27.040,0:45:31.280
space program too so it was

0:45:29.680,0:45:32.400
very interesting how they how they

0:45:31.280,0:45:34.160
pulled all these different little

0:45:32.400,0:45:37.280
tidbits together

0:45:34.160,0:45:38.560
and um gave you

0:45:37.280,0:45:40.480
more of an insight than you would

0:45:38.560,0:45:43.680
normally have seen in

0:45:40.480,0:45:44.640
in other episodes so apollo chronicles

0:45:43.680,0:45:48.240
streaming now

0:45:44.640,0:45:48.240
on amazon prime

0:45:49.890,0:45:53.280
[Applause]

0:45:51.120,0:45:55.839
[Music]

0:45:53.280,0:45:59.040
so the last thing that we did have today

0:45:55.839,0:46:02.319
uh unfortunately this news broke

0:45:59.040,0:46:03.520
almost immediately sunday yeah it was

0:46:02.319,0:46:07.119
immediately after

0:46:03.520,0:46:09.520
the show last week and that is the death

0:46:07.119,0:46:10.880
of david prowls now for those of you who

0:46:09.520,0:46:14.000
are not

0:46:10.880,0:46:16.319
die hard star wars fans david

0:46:14.000,0:46:19.280
prowls was the man in the suit in the

0:46:16.319,0:46:21.200
original star wars trilogy

0:46:19.280,0:46:22.560
everyone knows that james earl jones did

0:46:21.200,0:46:25.440
the voice

0:46:22.560,0:46:27.040
and he did the voice because david

0:46:25.440,0:46:30.800
prowse is british

0:46:27.040,0:46:32.160
and he has a very distinctive british

0:46:30.800,0:46:36.160
accent

0:46:32.160,0:46:39.280
and when lucas was filming the movie

0:46:36.160,0:46:40.960
he would have david prowse do the lines

0:46:39.280,0:46:43.520
and they’d go back and they’d look at

0:46:40.960,0:46:45.440
the screen trials afterwards and

0:46:43.520,0:46:46.240
realized that that voice was not going

0:46:45.440,0:46:49.760
to fit that

0:46:46.240,0:46:52.640
character however he was picked to do

0:46:49.760,0:46:54.560
to be the character because he was an

0:46:52.640,0:46:57.599
imposing individual he was a

0:46:54.560,0:46:59.599
professional bodybuilder in fact he was

0:46:57.599,0:47:01.839
very good friends lifelong friends

0:46:59.599,0:47:03.920
with arnold schwarzenegger they would

0:47:01.839,0:47:07.119
work out together

0:47:03.920,0:47:10.400
he was a

0:47:07.119,0:47:12.240
an actor who did uh worked in hammer

0:47:10.400,0:47:14.400
films worked with hammer films so he was

0:47:12.240,0:47:17.359
familiar with peter cushing

0:47:14.400,0:47:19.760
with christopher lee other you know

0:47:17.359,0:47:22.559
standout star wars characters

0:47:19.760,0:47:24.960
he’s played frankenstein he’s played

0:47:22.559,0:47:27.680
he’s been on doctor who so he had

0:47:24.960,0:47:28.960
quite a repertoire before he came to

0:47:27.680,0:47:31.760
star wars

0:47:28.960,0:47:34.400
but where he really was the the most

0:47:31.760,0:47:37.599
famous because you got to see his face

0:47:34.400,0:47:41.200
was um outside of being a

0:47:37.599,0:47:43.359
weightlifter he was the green cross code

0:47:41.200,0:47:46.880
man who was a

0:47:43.359,0:47:48.880
road safety individual um almost like a

0:47:46.880,0:47:52.079
smokey the bear kind of

0:47:48.880,0:47:54.960
figure over here he was that over there

0:47:52.079,0:47:57.359
for for road safety and and kids grew up

0:47:54.960,0:48:00.319
knowing him as this individual

0:47:57.359,0:48:01.920
to the point that he was actually made a

0:48:00.319,0:48:04.160
member of the british

0:48:01.920,0:48:07.680
order empire forget i wrote it down i

0:48:04.160,0:48:09.599
don’t remember what it was

0:48:07.680,0:48:11.760
and and that’s that’s what he wanted to

0:48:09.599,0:48:14.240
be most known for

0:48:11.760,0:48:14.800
although he was always there the rest of

0:48:14.240,0:48:18.640
his life

0:48:14.800,0:48:21.680
right um and i had an opportunity

0:48:18.640,0:48:25.839
a missed opportunity to meet him i know

0:48:21.680,0:48:25.839
and i’m not the type of person who

0:48:25.920,0:48:32.000
gets excited about getting celebrities

0:48:28.960,0:48:34.240
pictures or photographs or

0:48:32.000,0:48:36.880
autographs or anything like that so i

0:48:34.240,0:48:39.359
never bothered with that before but

0:48:36.880,0:48:40.880
but david prowse was the only person i

0:48:39.359,0:48:44.800
ever wanted to do that with

0:48:40.880,0:48:44.800
he was appearing at a

0:48:45.440,0:48:49.440
cop monster mania it was monster mania

0:48:47.680,0:48:51.040
and cherry hill in new jersey a few

0:48:49.440,0:48:53.520
years back

0:48:51.040,0:48:54.720
i was psyched i wanted to go i was going

0:48:53.520,0:48:57.200
to pay whatever

0:48:54.720,0:48:59.359
it cost to go and meet him shake his

0:48:57.200,0:48:59.599
hand get a picture and get him to sign

0:48:59.359,0:49:03.040
it

0:48:59.599,0:49:04.160
yep and i wound up getting like deathly

0:49:03.040,0:49:06.960
ill that weekend

0:49:04.160,0:49:07.599
and i could not go i did sneak a picture

0:49:06.960,0:49:10.079
of him

0:49:07.599,0:49:12.640
i i didn’t go and meet him but right

0:49:10.079,0:49:16.559
that was kind of before they started

0:49:12.640,0:49:19.200
getting more uh territorial about taking

0:49:16.559,0:49:20.800
pictures so you know so from standing

0:49:19.200,0:49:23.520
across the way

0:49:20.800,0:49:24.240
with my cell phone i i did take a

0:49:23.520,0:49:26.880
picture but

0:49:24.240,0:49:28.160
i know it wasn’t the same so i missed

0:49:26.880,0:49:30.640
the opportunity

0:49:28.160,0:49:31.599
shortly after that you know he was in

0:49:30.640,0:49:33.599
advanced

0:49:31.599,0:49:35.280
age there and he stopped doing public

0:49:33.599,0:49:37.599
appearances after that so i knew i’d

0:49:35.280,0:49:39.520
never get it again

0:49:37.599,0:49:41.520
and then it was kind of heartbreaking

0:49:39.520,0:49:43.680
seeing the news on sunday of last week

0:49:41.520,0:49:46.800
that he had passed away but

0:49:43.680,0:49:47.359
he was 85 years old david prowls the

0:49:46.800,0:49:53.040
original

0:49:47.359,0:49:56.720
darth vader sadly is no longer with us

0:49:53.040,0:50:00.240
