    • Disney World’s Magical Express Service to Be Discontinued in 2022

      • With health and safety procedures like temperature checks, new security systems at the parks, modified Park Hopping, and the introduction of Disney Park Pass, things look quite different than they did at the beginning of 2020. Policies are changing for Disney resort guests as well, as MagicBands are no longer free, and Extra Magic Hours haven’t been available since the parks reopened. Now, there’s yet another change for Disney resort guests — Disney’s Magical Express is coming to an end!
      • Beginning January 1st, 2022, Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be available for transportation to and from the MCO airport. The service will continue to be available throughout 2021 but will end with the start of next year.
      • Complimentary transportation will still be available within the Walt Disney World resort, such as the buses, monorail, and Disney Skyliner. A Disney spokesperson has told AllEars that while the Minnie Van service still does not have a return date currently set, they hope to bring back the option in the future.
      • For those looking to travel between the Orlando International Airport and Disney World in the future, there is some good news — Brightline plans to open a rail station at both Disney Springs and the Orlando International Airport. – Already planned for a South FL to Orlando route is in the works
      • A Disney spokesperson had the following to say about the end of Magical Express in a statement: “As consumer needs and preferences change, we will no longer offer Disney’s Magical Express service starting with arrivals in 2022. At the same time, we’re also introducing new ways for guests to enjoy their visits, including early theme park entry for Disney Resort hotel guests.”
    • Disneyland ending annual pass program because of coronavirus pandemic: report

      • Disneyland is ending its annual pass program 10 months after the theme park shut down because of the coronavirus pandemic, the theme park said Thursday.
      • The park in Anaheim, California, said it would begin issuing pro-rated refunds to eligible passholders.
      • “Due to the continued uncertainty of the pandemic and limitations around the reopening of our California theme parks, we will be issuing appropriate refunds for eligible Disneyland Resort Annual Passports and sunsetting the current program,” Ken Potrock, president of Disneyland Resort, said in a statement. He said the park will develop new membership offerings for when it can reopen.
      • Disney officials would not say how many people hold these passes or how much the move will cost the company.
      • The announcement comes the same week that Disneyland allowed county health officials to use its parking lot for a large-scale coronavirus vaccination site.
      • Disneyland closed in March and has not reopened since because coronavirus metrics in the county where the park is located have not declined to the levels required by the state.
      • California health officials have said large amusement parks like Disneyland can only reopen once transmission reaches minimal levels, and then park capacity will be limited to 25% and reservations required.
      • California has seen a surge in coronavirus cases in recent months that has prompted a shutdown of many businesses and nighttime curfews in much of the state.

    • Exclusive: Star Wars Is Making Heir To The Empire As A Crossover
    • https://www.giantfreakinrobot.com/ent/exclusive-star-wars-heir-to-the-empire.html?fbclid=IwAR151RKq5cVfRqWDZx04WXivEChs2OAQbg5S1bXrGRnoQ5Zumn11BmAr3D4
    • http://bit.ly/3bKOpBr 
      • Hardcore Star Wars fans know that one of the best Star Wars stories ever told didn’t happen on screen, it happened in the Star Wars novels. Now we’ve learned that story is finally coming to the screen. Lucasfilm is working towards adapting Heir to the Empire.
      • We’ve been informed by our exclusive insider source that The Mandalorian and many of the upcoming Star Wars shows are headed towards a big crossover event. That crossover event will culminate in an adaptation of the book Heir to the Empire.
      • Heir to the Empire was the first novel in author Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy. Originally published in 1991 the book tells the story of the New Republic trying to hang on to control of the galaxy after defeating the Empire at the Battle of Endor. It involves the Imperial Remnant reforming under the leadership of a brilliant Grand Admiral named Thrawn. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because Grand Admiral Thrawn was teased in Mandalorian season 2. He’s the big bad Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano is on the hunt for.
      • The dropping of Grand Admiral Thrawn’s name wasn’t just a one off, it was a road map to the future of the franchise. Our source tell us that’s where The Mandalorian and upcoming spinoff shows like Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano are headed.  They’re actually making Heir to the Empire, at last. 
      • Our source is a proven insider with a track record of breaking stories like this. This source has, however, asked that we maintain anonymity. 
      • Keep in mind that this is probably a long way off. The crossover will involve shows like Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano and Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic. Neither of those shows have even started filming yet. But our source insists that Disney has a road map for where it’s all headed and where it’s headed is Heir to the Empire.
      • This means Disney will definitely have to move forward with the recently rumored plans to recast iconic characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa. All three figure heavily into the events of the Thrawn trilogy.  It will likely also mean even more work for Donald Glover playing Lando Calrissian, since he’s a critical component as well. It could even mean that Glover’s announced Lando series will also be a critical part of the Heir to the Empire crossover event along with The Mandalorian, Rangers of the New Republic, and Ahsoka Tano.
      • Lucasfilm has learned a lot from watching Marvel and one of the big key’s to Marvel’s road map is that they had a plan from the beginning. Heir to the Empire is Star Wars’ first Avengers movie.
    • Ubisoft announces open-world Star Wars game
    • https://clutchpoints.com/ubisoft-announces-open-world-star-wars-game/
    • http://bit.ly/35MJGeK 
      • Ubisoft announced today that it will be working on an open-world game set in the Star Wars universe. Ubisoft Massive, developers of the Division, will head up the new Star Wars project. Subsequently, Division 2 Director Julian Gerighty is set to helm the project. There have yet to be announcements whether the game will be single-player or multiplayer. Fortunately for Star Wars fans around the world, Ubisoft know their way around open-world games.
      • The new Star Wars project came to light following Lucasfilm Games entering a partnership with Ubisoft and Bethesda. This marks the first time a company outside of EA produced a Star Wars game since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. EA famously produced Star Wars games for nearly eight years. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot shared a little insight about the upcoming Star Wars title and what it can offer to fans.
      • Development is still in the very early stages but it’s a good sign for fans of the Star Wars franchise. Hopefully, this announced project doesn’t join the long list of cancelled Star Wars games. Ubisoft and Lucasfilm both promise to share more details with its fans and potential players when there is more to announce. Finally, Lucasfilm stated that all Star Wars games would continue to be treated as canon alongside any film, TV, book, and comic releases. The new game’s announcement follows the conclusion of the franchise’s third trilogy in December 2019.

    • Chris Evans Sends Fans in a Frenzy After ‘Captain America’ Star Is Reportedly Reprising Role
    • https://popculture.com/movies/news/chris-evans-captain-america-reportedly-reprising-role-fans-frenzy/
    • http://bit.ly/3oQvLMl 
      • Chris Evans is reportedly in talks to reprise his role as Captain America in a future Marvel Cinematic Universe film, and the news has sent fans into a frenzy. According to Deadline, there is no official confirmation that a deal had been finalized, but sources advised the outlet that Evans and Marvel have been discussing it and that he is open to returning. Deadline noted that it reached out to Marvel about the rumors, and the company “had no comment.”
      • Evans made it clear in past years that he was not picking the shield back up after Avengers: Endgame, and even passed the mantle to Anthony Mackie’s character, Sam Wilson, at the end of the film. Wilson is often better known by his superhero name, Falcon. While the move was shocking for many fans, this passing of the torch was actually not unprecedented for the two characters, as years prior Wilson had become Captain America in Marvel Comics continuity.
      • There has been a lot of speculation as to how Evans could return, though with time-travel and multi-verse storylines having been introduced in recent MCU films, it seems the possibilities could be endless for new adventures of Evans as Steve Rogers. Perhaps fans will get to see more WWII-era missions carried out by Cap and the Howling Commandos, or maybe Evans will portray an alternate-dimension version of Rogers. Fans have been taking to social media to speculate on all the possibilities, but mostly they are just so excited to get more for Evans as Captain America.

    • Negan and Maggie Meet Again in New Look at The Walking Dead Extended Season 10
    • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/the-walking-dead-season-10-new-episodes-negan-maggie-meeting-first-look-photo-home-sweet-home/?fbclid=IwAR2G-Q06l8BdP5bytMCz_mPCW_IJcZQmnr7uYQDr4Ni6t7mqTa4k91lEA3Y
    • http://bit.ly/3nKW4SE 
      • Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) meet again for the first time in years when The Walking Dead returns with six new episodes in February. More than seven years after their climactic confrontation in season 9 episode “What Comes After,” where widowed Maggie plotted with Daryl (Norman Reedus) to execute the jailed murderer of husband Glenn (Steven Yeun), Negan is a free man. Carol (Melissa McBride) commuted the reformed villain’s life sentence when she set him free to infiltrate the Whisperers and assassinate Alpha (Samantha Morton), making Negan instrumental in ending the Whisperer War brought to a bloody finish in October’s “A Certain Doom.”
      • Negan and Maggie cross paths in the extended season 10 premiere, “Home Sweet Home,” which you can see in a new first-look photo from the episode airing February 28:
      • “You’re out,” Maggie tells Negan in a virtual table read clip released in October. No longer the withered prisoner Maggie left to rot years earlier, Negan tells her, “I didn’t escape, if that’s what you’re thinking.”
      • Carol confesses to Maggie about letting Negan out of jail, explaining that “we were going to lose everything. Negan is the reason we didn’t.” Daryl adds that “nothing’s decided” with Negan, prompting Carol to point out Maggie is “never gonna come around on him.”
      • When Daryl asks if Carol has come around on the group’s former enemy, she shrugs. “It’s good to see her,” Carol says, not regretting her decision to orchestrate Alpha’s death and avenge slain son Henry (Matt Lintz).
      • “Look, Negan killed Maggie’s husband and burnt down her house, so it’s just not going to be an easy road, I think, for either of them,” showrunner Angela Kang said during a virtual Comic-Con panel over the summer. “And Negan’s been on this whole other journey while she’s been gone, but it’s sort of like Maggie is coming in and she hasn’t seen any of that.”
      • Because Maggie and son Hershel spent years away from Virginia as part of the new community where they found masked warrior Elijah (Okea Eme-Akwari), it’s a surprise to learn Negan avenged Maggie’s friends murdered by the Whisperers. After one of Alpha’s skin-wearing weirdos cut down interim Hilltop leader Jesus (Tom Payne), Alpha decapitated Tara (Alanna Masterson) and Maggie’s protege, Enid (Katelyn Nacon), and spiked their heads at a border marking Whisperer territory.
      • “It’ll be interesting to see if anybody kind of tells Maggie what Negan’s been up to, or if they just put it on Negan to kind of start from scratch with this,” Morgan said at virtual New York Comic Con in October. “I think that’s an Angela and Scott [Gimple, executive producer] thing.”

      • Drawing on newly available info, this show traces how the British royal family has survived the last 100 years of power struggles, politics and more.
      • This documentary series explores the history of the Windsor dynasty, which was founded in 1917 when Germany and Britain were at war. A combination of new research and evidence, assistance from family insiders, and access to Windsor Castle’s royal archives has provided an understanding of how this royal family has survived a century of great change. We learn how George V rebranded the family from its original German roots, and how Edward VIII almost ruined the dynasty with the abdication crisis in 1936.

0:04:25.280,0:04:28.639
obviously with the health and safety

0:04:27.520,0:04:30.800
procedures

0:04:28.639,0:04:32.080
like temperature checks and security

0:04:30.800,0:04:35.040
systems

0:04:32.080,0:04:35.440
um you know modified park hopping and

0:04:35.040,0:04:38.320
and

0:04:35.440,0:04:40.240
all these different changes um you know

0:04:38.320,0:04:41.680
they’re kind of scaling down certain

0:04:40.240,0:04:42.880
things you know one of the announcements

0:04:41.680,0:04:45.199
they had made that

0:04:42.880,0:04:47.919
magic bands were no longer going to be

0:04:45.199,0:04:49.360
uh given away free if you had a resort

0:04:47.919,0:04:50.960
stay so now you have to

0:04:49.360,0:04:53.759
if you want a magic band you have to

0:04:50.960,0:04:56.240
purchase one or you have to use one

0:04:53.759,0:04:57.840
uh that you’ve previously used before

0:04:56.240,0:05:00.400
and now it seems that

0:04:57.840,0:05:01.840
the next thing to kind of go away is the

0:05:00.400,0:05:05.120
magical express

0:05:01.840,0:05:06.960
so beginning january 1st 2022 disney’s

0:05:05.120,0:05:07.840
magical express will no longer be

0:05:06.960,0:05:10.800
available

0:05:07.840,0:05:11.600
for transportation to and from the

0:05:10.800,0:05:14.160
orlando

0:05:11.600,0:05:15.759
international airport uh the service

0:05:14.160,0:05:17.520
will continue to be available all

0:05:15.759,0:05:19.840
throughout 2021

0:05:17.520,0:05:21.680
but will start uh but will be

0:05:19.840,0:05:24.080
discontinued at the start of the

0:05:21.680,0:05:26.160
following year

0:05:24.080,0:05:27.440
so complementary transportation is still

0:05:26.160,0:05:29.840
available within

0:05:27.440,0:05:32.240
the resort with the buses the monorail

0:05:29.840,0:05:35.479
the skyliner

0:05:32.240,0:05:36.639
and a disney spokesperson had told

0:05:35.479,0:05:38.320
alleers.net

0:05:36.639,0:05:40.240
which is where this article had come

0:05:38.320,0:05:42.800
from that while the mini

0:05:40.240,0:05:43.520
van service still does not have a return

0:05:42.800,0:05:45.280
date

0:05:43.520,0:05:47.360
they are hoping to bring it back in the

0:05:45.280,0:05:49.840
future and the mini

0:05:47.360,0:05:50.880
van service was kind of like their uber

0:05:49.840,0:05:52.880
on site

0:05:50.880,0:05:54.479
um but you could actually i think take

0:05:52.880,0:05:56.960
it to some places

0:05:54.479,0:05:57.759
relatively close by off site i believe

0:05:56.960,0:05:59.759
we’ve never

0:05:57.759,0:06:01.680
we never used it because we’ve been

0:05:59.759,0:06:04.639
taking our own vehicle

0:06:01.680,0:06:06.479
uh for many years so obviously for those

0:06:04.639,0:06:08.000
who are traveling between the orlando

0:06:06.479,0:06:11.199
international airport

0:06:08.000,0:06:12.960
and disney world in the future you know

0:06:11.199,0:06:16.160
now you’re gonna have to

0:06:12.960,0:06:18.639
find your own way uh to get there but

0:06:16.160,0:06:22.319
there is some good news because

0:06:18.639,0:06:25.919
uh they are uh brightline

0:06:22.319,0:06:28.639
which is a um rail system

0:06:25.919,0:06:29.360
that they’re planning on building it’s

0:06:28.639,0:06:33.280
actually from

0:06:29.360,0:06:35.520
south florida up to the orlando area and

0:06:33.280,0:06:37.199
in disney springs they are actually

0:06:35.520,0:06:40.240
planning to

0:06:37.199,0:06:41.840
do a line from the orlando airport to

0:06:40.240,0:06:44.080
disney spring so

0:06:41.840,0:06:47.600
but that’s you’re looking at like the

0:06:44.080,0:06:50.319
end of 2022 maybe even 2023

0:06:47.600,0:06:51.440
at this point so there will be that

0:06:50.319,0:06:54.479
available

0:06:51.440,0:06:58.080
but of course again you know

0:06:54.479,0:07:01.520
if you saw anything online or any

0:06:58.080,0:07:03.759
uh you know disney forum everybody is

0:07:01.520,0:07:05.199
like how are we gonna get to disney now

0:07:03.759,0:07:06.160
blah blah blah blah blah and i’m

0:07:05.199,0:07:09.360
thinking

0:07:06.160,0:07:10.400
you know magical express hasn’t always

0:07:09.360,0:07:14.639
been around

0:07:10.400,0:07:16.000
if you know yes it’s been around for a a

0:07:14.639,0:07:19.120
while now and people got

0:07:16.000,0:07:22.240
accustomed to it but for many years

0:07:19.120,0:07:24.720
you had to find your own way to

0:07:22.240,0:07:25.840
you know so that’s it i guess that’s the

0:07:24.720,0:07:28.880
first question that i have

0:07:25.840,0:07:30.880
right what is the history of

0:07:28.880,0:07:32.960
magical express when it first was

0:07:30.880,0:07:34.400
implemented it was

0:07:32.960,0:07:36.560
to support the cruise line wasn’t it

0:07:34.400,0:07:40.639
right when it first started

0:07:36.560,0:07:43.360
and i want to say in the

0:07:40.639,0:07:45.120
late 90s i don’t i i meant to look up

0:07:43.360,0:07:45.680
with the date of when it actually

0:07:45.120,0:07:47.759
started

0:07:45.680,0:07:49.599
when they first started doing any kind

0:07:47.759,0:07:51.840
of transportation

0:07:49.599,0:07:53.440
um that you didn’t have to pay for it

0:07:51.840,0:07:54.879
was actually through the cruise line if

0:07:53.440,0:07:56.840
you booked a land and see

0:07:54.879,0:07:58.479
package they picked you up at the

0:07:56.840,0:08:00.479
airport and

0:07:58.479,0:08:01.759
then they would take you you know to

0:08:00.479,0:08:04.800
your resort

0:08:01.759,0:08:07.199
and then when you had to go uh

0:08:04.800,0:08:08.800
to your cruise depending on if you were

0:08:07.199,0:08:10.639
if you were going to the cruise first

0:08:08.800,0:08:12.319
they would take you to the cruise and

0:08:10.639,0:08:14.240
then from the cruise to the park

0:08:12.319,0:08:15.919
and park to the airport or you know

0:08:14.240,0:08:18.639
whichever

0:08:15.919,0:08:20.560
version of of your trip that you had

0:08:18.639,0:08:22.319
well then they saw that this was

0:08:20.560,0:08:26.240
something that they could do

0:08:22.319,0:08:27.919
and i actually remember that um some of

0:08:26.240,0:08:30.720
my trips and this was

0:08:27.919,0:08:32.640
back when i actually traveled alone i

0:08:30.720,0:08:35.360
did two disney trips alone

0:08:32.640,0:08:37.680
they actually had um when you made your

0:08:35.360,0:08:40.800
reservation you could make a reservation

0:08:37.680,0:08:42.640
with mirrors and

0:08:40.800,0:08:44.159
book your stay amir’s being the

0:08:42.640,0:08:46.480
transportation company

0:08:44.159,0:08:48.880
the company that actually that’s who

0:08:46.480,0:08:51.760
does the the magical express now

0:08:48.880,0:08:53.040
so back then you could get i don’t know

0:08:51.760,0:08:55.440
it was like 25

0:08:53.040,0:08:56.480
round trip but you had to get your own

0:08:55.440,0:08:58.800
luggage

0:08:56.480,0:09:01.200
and then once you had your luggage you

0:08:58.800,0:09:03.600
went downstairs you had a voucher

0:09:01.200,0:09:05.519
and they would you know take you to

0:09:03.600,0:09:07.440
whichever resort you know they had

0:09:05.519,0:09:09.519
basically how they do magical express

0:09:07.440,0:09:13.040
now in some respects

0:09:09.519,0:09:16.560
um the one thing that magical express

0:09:13.040,0:09:19.920
started doing that basically

0:09:16.560,0:09:23.360
you know i could see why people

0:09:19.920,0:09:26.399
um how people could be

0:09:23.360,0:09:26.880
um you know upset or you know one of the

0:09:26.399,0:09:29.360
things that

0:09:26.880,0:09:31.519
you know they’re gonna miss is when you

0:09:29.360,0:09:32.720
use magical express you get special

0:09:31.519,0:09:35.920
luggage tags

0:09:32.720,0:09:37.440
so when you go to your airport and you

0:09:35.920,0:09:40.160
drop off your luggage

0:09:37.440,0:09:41.200
that’s the last time that you see your

0:09:40.160,0:09:44.399
luggage

0:09:41.200,0:09:46.240
until it comes to your resort

0:09:44.399,0:09:48.320
room yeah now that was something that

0:09:46.240,0:09:50.959
was always

0:09:48.320,0:09:52.480
going and and leaving right was always

0:09:50.959,0:09:54.160
convenient was that you never had to

0:09:52.480,0:09:55.680
handle your life never had to hand your

0:09:54.160,0:09:57.680
luggage so when you get to

0:09:55.680,0:09:59.680
orlando international airport you

0:09:57.680,0:10:02.640
basically got off the plane

0:09:59.680,0:10:03.760
and you went right to a magical express

0:10:02.640,0:10:05.040
bus

0:10:03.760,0:10:06.959
you know and they would say that your

0:10:05.040,0:10:10.560
luggage should arrive within

0:10:06.959,0:10:12.800
roughly three hours of your flight

0:10:10.560,0:10:14.079
um so that the idea was that once you

0:10:12.800,0:10:17.040
got to the

0:10:14.079,0:10:18.000
the uh the park or the resort you could

0:10:17.040,0:10:20.320
go and do whatever

0:10:18.000,0:10:21.440
you didn’t have to wait around for

0:10:20.320,0:10:23.519
anything so you

0:10:21.440,0:10:25.200
you would check in at your home airport

0:10:23.519,0:10:27.519
you check your luggage there you go the

0:10:25.200,0:10:28.240
plane you get off the plane in orlando

0:10:27.519,0:10:30.720
yep

0:10:28.240,0:10:32.160
they would handle your luggage yep you

0:10:30.720,0:10:35.760
would go down to the

0:10:32.160,0:10:38.720
far furthest possible 12 mile

0:10:35.760,0:10:40.800
walk to the end of of the transportation

0:10:38.720,0:10:43.440
yeah yeah they’d put you on a bus

0:10:40.800,0:10:44.000
right they drive you to the resorts

0:10:43.440,0:10:46.160
right

0:10:44.000,0:10:47.120
uh you’d get a little movie right you

0:10:46.160,0:10:50.240
know in the

0:10:47.120,0:10:52.000
process there they would go through drop

0:10:50.240,0:10:53.360
off at multiple resorts you get dropped

0:10:52.000,0:10:55.519
off at your resort

0:10:53.360,0:10:57.040
they would then bring the luggage from

0:10:55.519,0:10:59.600
the airport

0:10:57.040,0:11:00.079
they would handle it at the concierge

0:10:59.600,0:11:01.760
desk

0:11:00.079,0:11:03.200
and then they would deliver it to your

0:11:01.760,0:11:06.000
room at that point

0:11:03.200,0:11:08.079
yeah and then when you left you would

0:11:06.000,0:11:09.680
drop off your luggage and check in

0:11:08.079,0:11:11.360
right because then what they started

0:11:09.680,0:11:14.560
doing was they started doing

0:11:11.360,0:11:17.519
airline check-in at the

0:11:14.560,0:11:19.360
resorts right so instead of having to

0:11:17.519,0:11:20.480
you know take your luggage to the

0:11:19.360,0:11:22.959
airport and do

0:11:20.480,0:11:24.560
online you know and do the check-in for

0:11:22.959,0:11:27.200
your flight going home

0:11:24.560,0:11:28.560
you were able to do all of that at your

0:11:27.200,0:11:30.720
resort

0:11:28.560,0:11:32.000
again say goodbye to your luggage your

0:11:30.720,0:11:34.959
luggage would end up

0:11:32.000,0:11:36.640
you know going on its own you would then

0:11:34.959,0:11:39.440
get a ride

0:11:36.640,0:11:40.640
from your resort to the airport you’d

0:11:39.440,0:11:43.360
get on your flight

0:11:40.640,0:11:45.120
and then you’d get to you know get home

0:11:43.360,0:11:48.480
and then you’d actually have to

0:11:45.120,0:11:49.680
if you like flying into philly you would

0:11:48.480,0:11:50.880
hope that you’re luggage that your

0:11:49.680,0:11:52.800
luggage actually

0:11:50.880,0:11:54.399
shows you didn’t always show up right

0:11:52.800,0:11:56.000
that wasn’t always disney’s fault

0:11:54.399,0:11:57.519
right because sometimes that was you

0:11:56.000,0:12:00.320
know so with this going away

0:11:57.519,0:12:00.959
does that mean that the the airport

0:12:00.320,0:12:02.480
check-in

0:12:00.959,0:12:06.320
at the resort’s going away as well

0:12:02.480,0:12:09.519
that’s again what people are trying to

0:12:06.320,0:12:11.839
figure out and as of right now

0:12:09.519,0:12:13.920
nothing’s really come out is the airline

0:12:11.839,0:12:16.639
checking going away

0:12:13.920,0:12:18.480
is that yeah because this was a lot more

0:12:16.639,0:12:20.639
than just a ride from the airport oh

0:12:18.480,0:12:21.760
absolutely and logistics and that was

0:12:20.639,0:12:24.959
the thing was that

0:12:21.760,0:12:26.560
it it started again this all started

0:12:24.959,0:12:27.839
with the cruise line because when you

0:12:26.560,0:12:30.399
took a cruise

0:12:27.839,0:12:31.680
it was the same thing you had special

0:12:30.399,0:12:33.440
luggage tags

0:12:31.680,0:12:34.720
so that you didn’t have to touch your

0:12:33.440,0:12:37.760
luggage

0:12:34.720,0:12:41.360
until you got you know to the resort

0:12:37.760,0:12:42.320
and then if you did um the land and then

0:12:41.360,0:12:44.160
the sea

0:12:42.320,0:12:45.920
they came and picked up your luggage at

0:12:44.160,0:12:47.120
the resort you didn’t even have to bring

0:12:45.920,0:12:48.639
it somewhere

0:12:47.120,0:12:50.560
and then they would bring it to the

0:12:48.639,0:12:54.560
crews as well so they got

0:12:50.560,0:12:56.800
used to that yeah you know

0:12:54.560,0:12:57.680
the logistics of it and then it just

0:12:56.800,0:13:01.040
grew

0:12:57.680,0:13:04.000
and you figure it’s been you know

0:13:01.040,0:13:06.000
20 years maybe that they’ve been doing

0:13:04.000,0:13:08.880
that so i could definitely see

0:13:06.000,0:13:11.760
you know people that haven’t been going

0:13:08.880,0:13:15.279
to disney as long or have been and then

0:13:11.760,0:13:19.120
have just gotten so used to this

0:13:15.279,0:13:20.160
and now it’s gone now i’m surprised that

0:13:19.120,0:13:22.800
they didn’t start

0:13:20.160,0:13:23.600
maybe still offering it but now you have

0:13:22.800,0:13:26.800
to pay

0:13:23.600,0:13:29.200
right for it um

0:13:26.800,0:13:30.560
because again you figure it’s already in

0:13:29.200,0:13:32.800
place the system

0:13:30.560,0:13:33.680
as far as i know really hasn’t had too

0:13:32.800,0:13:36.880
many

0:13:33.680,0:13:39.440
glitches i could definitely see

0:13:36.880,0:13:40.880
you know a huge family that you know

0:13:39.440,0:13:43.920
doesn’t want to have to

0:13:40.880,0:13:44.320
you know rent a car or get a van or

0:13:43.920,0:13:47.279
bring

0:13:44.320,0:13:49.600
car seats or you know when you do those

0:13:47.279,0:13:51.279
big family vacations

0:13:49.600,0:13:52.639
i could see them saying hey listen let

0:13:51.279,0:13:54.480
me pay you know

0:13:52.639,0:13:56.000
a couple hundred bucks and not have to

0:13:54.480,0:13:59.680
worry about

0:13:56.000,0:14:02.720
all of that you know other stuff so

0:13:59.680,0:14:03.760
again as of right now no no news as to

0:14:02.720,0:14:07.199
what’s going on

0:14:03.760,0:14:10.560
but again there’s always ways to get

0:14:07.199,0:14:14.560
to you know the the resort

0:14:10.560,0:14:17.839
um you know from the airport obviously

0:14:14.560,0:14:21.040
it’s not something that’s going to be um

0:14:17.839,0:14:23.600
complementary anymore so

0:14:21.040,0:14:25.519
well just one more thing we’re losing sp

0:14:23.600,0:14:26.000
speaking of that let’s let’s talk about

0:14:25.519,0:14:28.240
something

0:14:26.000,0:14:29.360
else that we’re losing on our west coast

0:14:28.240,0:14:31.839
yeah so for

0:14:29.360,0:14:32.959
uh our west coast disney people it seems

0:14:31.839,0:14:36.160
that disneyland

0:14:32.959,0:14:39.279
is ending the annual pass program

0:14:36.160,0:14:40.480
because of the pandemic um you know

0:14:39.279,0:14:43.120
disneyland

0:14:40.480,0:14:44.800
uh is ending the program it’s been now

0:14:43.120,0:14:45.839
10 months that the theme park has been

0:14:44.800,0:14:49.279
shut down

0:14:45.839,0:14:52.320
um and obviously there’s

0:14:49.279,0:14:54.160
no horizon uh

0:14:52.320,0:14:56.399
you know as to when the park is going to

0:14:54.160,0:14:58.480
be open uh so they had issued a

0:14:56.399,0:15:01.680
statement that it would also

0:14:58.480,0:15:04.320
begin issuing pro-rated refunds to

0:15:01.680,0:15:06.000
eligible pass holders so it said due to

0:15:04.320,0:15:06.880
the continued uncertainty of the

0:15:06.000,0:15:08.959
pandemic

0:15:06.880,0:15:10.639
and limitations around the reopening of

0:15:08.959,0:15:13.279
our california theme parks

0:15:10.639,0:15:14.800
we’ll be issuing appropriate refund

0:15:13.279,0:15:18.320
refunds for eligible

0:15:14.800,0:15:22.000
disneyland resort annual pass holders um

0:15:18.320,0:15:25.120
and unsetting the current program

0:15:22.000,0:15:27.040
uh so disney didn’t say how many people

0:15:25.120,0:15:29.199
this was going to affect or how much

0:15:27.040,0:15:32.720
money you know the company would be

0:15:29.199,0:15:34.160
uh you know how losing you know at this

0:15:32.720,0:15:36.000
point

0:15:34.160,0:15:38.399
it also the announcement came the same

0:15:36.000,0:15:40.240
day that disneyland has now allowed

0:15:38.399,0:15:42.639
county health officials to use its

0:15:40.240,0:15:46.399
parking lot for large-scale

0:15:42.639,0:15:49.440
coronavirus vaccination sites so

0:15:46.399,0:15:50.399
you know at least something good i guess

0:15:49.440,0:15:53.279
is being

0:15:50.399,0:15:54.639
done on disney property you know but it

0:15:53.279,0:15:58.399
is kind of

0:15:54.639,0:16:00.399
you know unsettling um obviously again

0:15:58.399,0:16:01.519
no dates as to when things will be

0:16:00.399,0:16:04.160
opening up

0:16:01.519,0:16:05.600
um you know obviously once the

0:16:04.160,0:16:09.360
transmission rates

0:16:05.600,0:16:12.959
start lowering uh disneyland is hoping

0:16:09.360,0:16:15.680
hoping to open at 25 capacity

0:16:12.959,0:16:17.759
and just like how disney world did it

0:16:15.680,0:16:20.160
with reservations being required

0:16:17.759,0:16:22.079
for the specific days that that you’re

0:16:20.160,0:16:25.920
going so

0:16:22.079,0:16:27.519
again right now you know

0:16:25.920,0:16:28.959
so just kind of one more thing that

0:16:27.519,0:16:31.040
disney’s doing away with

0:16:28.959,0:16:32.240
that that at least the locals have

0:16:31.040,0:16:35.360
certainly taken advantage right

0:16:32.240,0:16:38.560
and and honestly i think once things

0:16:35.360,0:16:41.839
kind of get to a more

0:16:38.560,0:16:44.160
normal atmosphere

0:16:41.839,0:16:45.360
i can’t imagine that they wouldn’t bring

0:16:44.160,0:16:47.920
bring it back

0:16:45.360,0:16:49.600
i can’t imagine them i was just

0:16:47.920,0:16:51.519
completely doing away with it

0:16:49.600,0:16:52.959
i think it was more shutting it down

0:16:51.519,0:16:54.560
just because they aren’t

0:16:52.959,0:16:56.320
open at this point in time and that’s

0:16:54.560,0:16:58.639
the and and that’s i think

0:16:56.320,0:17:00.320
really what it kind of comes down to is

0:16:58.639,0:17:02.399
that you know and and that’s the thing

0:17:00.320,0:17:05.280
is they have so many different

0:17:02.399,0:17:07.600
types of annual passes um you know the

0:17:05.280,0:17:10.240
biggest one is the coast to coast

0:17:07.600,0:17:11.280
pass where you have disney land and

0:17:10.240,0:17:14.480
disney world

0:17:11.280,0:17:15.439
so i’m sure that’s still available for

0:17:14.480,0:17:18.000
people that

0:17:15.439,0:17:19.280
you know that that do a lot of traveling

0:17:18.000,0:17:22.160
and and

0:17:19.280,0:17:24.160
and go to both parks um but if you

0:17:22.160,0:17:26.240
figure the park hasn’t been cl you know

0:17:24.160,0:17:28.079
hasn’t been open in 10 months

0:17:26.240,0:17:29.600
what’s the point in paying for an annual

0:17:28.079,0:17:31.760
pass for a park

0:17:29.600,0:17:32.960
uh you know because they do their their

0:17:31.760,0:17:35.600
park passes

0:17:32.960,0:17:36.480
you know day to day so if you you know

0:17:35.600,0:17:40.160
got it today

0:17:36.480,0:17:43.280
you have 365 days you know it’s not like

0:17:40.160,0:17:45.440
you know some seasonal uh

0:17:43.280,0:17:48.080
parks you know around here where if you

0:17:45.440,0:17:50.160
get an annual park it’s just for this

0:17:48.080,0:17:52.080
you know calendar year or whatever the

0:17:50.160,0:17:53.120
season is so yeah they did mention in

0:17:52.080,0:17:55.039
the article that they

0:17:53.120,0:17:56.559
were planning on putting some other

0:17:55.039,0:17:57.600
program in place that’s still under

0:17:56.559,0:17:59.120
development they just

0:17:57.600,0:18:00.880
aren’t rid of it right and that’s

0:17:59.120,0:18:02.480
probably you know what it is they’re

0:18:00.880,0:18:03.039
probably trying to figure out because

0:18:02.480,0:18:05.840
i’m sure

0:18:03.039,0:18:07.120
once the park opens again you’re still

0:18:05.840,0:18:10.000
going to have to make

0:18:07.120,0:18:12.160
a reservation to go you know there’s

0:18:10.000,0:18:15.120
going to be some sort of limitation

0:18:12.160,0:18:16.640
so maybe it’s one of the you know maybe

0:18:15.120,0:18:18.640
it’s kind of

0:18:16.640,0:18:20.559
i could almost see them doing maybe like

0:18:18.640,0:18:24.480
the multi-day

0:18:20.559,0:18:27.520
like a multi-day park hopper type ticket

0:18:24.480,0:18:30.960
where okay this is good for

0:18:27.520,0:18:33.679
12 visits you know so it’s

0:18:30.960,0:18:35.039
kind of you know and you have a year to

0:18:33.679,0:18:36.880
use it in

0:18:35.039,0:18:38.960
you know type thing so i could kind of

0:18:36.880,0:18:39.679
see them maybe starting something like

0:18:38.960,0:18:41.679
that

0:18:39.679,0:18:43.840
until the park is open at you know a

0:18:41.679,0:18:46.080
hundred percent capacity

0:18:43.840,0:18:47.679
um you know for for those because you

0:18:46.080,0:18:49.600
figure you know the locals

0:18:47.679,0:18:50.720
how often are they going are they going

0:18:49.600,0:18:53.039
right you know every day

0:18:50.720,0:18:55.280
are you going you know every couple of

0:18:53.039,0:18:57.919
weekends so do you really need something

0:18:55.280,0:18:59.440
that gives you 365 days of access

0:18:57.919,0:19:02.160
or do you only need something that gives

0:18:59.440,0:19:05.600
you like 24

0:19:02.160,0:19:07.360
so so that was all we had for our disney

0:19:05.600,0:19:08.720

opening

0:20:43.520,0:20:51.360
uh exclusive star wars news

0:20:48.799,0:20:53.039
hardcore star wars fans uh know that one

0:20:51.360,0:20:55.600
of the best star wars stories

0:20:53.039,0:20:58.240
ever told didn’t happen on the screen

0:20:55.600,0:20:59.840
and it happened in star wars novels

0:20:58.240,0:21:01.679
now we’ve learned that the story is

0:20:59.840,0:21:03.600
finally coming to the screen

0:21:01.679,0:21:06.640
and lucasfilms is working towards

0:21:03.600,0:21:09.679
adapting air to the empire

0:21:06.640,0:21:13.200
obviously we’ve gotten uh some

0:21:09.679,0:21:16.240
hints uh with the mandalorian

0:21:13.200,0:21:16.960
because we got to finally hear grand

thrall’s name thrawn’s name mentioned

0:21:20.320,0:21:26.559
so of course that was the poor people

0:21:23.360,0:21:28.799
also appeared in uh rebels as well true

0:21:26.559,0:21:30.559
so you know obviously you would know a

0:21:28.799,0:21:32.000
little bit more about that he’s also got

0:21:30.559,0:21:35.600

0:21:38.240,0:21:41.600
of came out that they’re going to be

0:21:39.440,0:21:44.159
doing some crossover events

0:21:41.600,0:21:45.679
that’ll kind of you know culminate in an

0:21:44.159,0:21:48.240
adaptation of the book

0:21:45.679,0:21:49.360
heir to the empire um and that was the

0:21:48.240,0:21:52.400
first novel

0:21:49.360,0:21:55.520

0:21:57.760,0:22:00.320
trying to hang on to control of the

0:21:59.360,0:22:03.120
galaxy

0:22:00.320,0:22:04.240
after defeating the empire at the battle

0:22:03.120,0:22:07.280
of endor

0:22:04.240,0:22:09.679
uh it involves the imperial remnant uh

0:22:07.280,0:22:11.039
reforming under the leadership of the

0:22:09.679,0:22:14.080
brilliant

0:22:11.039,0:22:15.840
grand admiral whose name is thrawn

0:22:14.080,0:22:17.360
he has a kitty right he is a little kid

0:22:15.840,0:22:18.880
yeah he doesn’t anymore though he does

0:22:17.360,0:22:20.320
he got rid of the kitty yeah

0:22:18.880,0:22:22.400
oh that looks like katie shows up in

0:22:20.320,0:22:23.840
this oh does it oh okay yeah see i

0:22:22.400,0:22:26.720
remember when you played

0:22:23.840,0:22:28.400
uh your your star wars miniature game

0:22:26.720,0:22:29.360
and i remember his little character and

0:22:28.400,0:22:31.200
he had like this little

0:22:29.360,0:22:32.400
yeah the kitty shows up in the novel

0:22:31.200,0:22:34.720
because it it

0:22:32.400,0:22:35.440
creates a bubble where the force doesn’t

0:22:34.720,0:22:38.400
work around

0:22:35.440,0:22:38.799
oh so that’s why the kitty is there um

0:22:38.400,0:22:41.760
so

0:22:38.799,0:22:44.400
again we got teased about it in the

0:22:41.760,0:22:47.840
mandalorian season two

0:22:44.400,0:22:50.400
when um you know uh ahsoka

0:22:47.840,0:22:52.480
is on the hunt and she’s obviously

0:22:50.400,0:22:56.480
looking for him so we know now

0:22:52.480,0:22:58.720
he is part of canon and will be

0:22:56.480,0:23:00.559
making his debut and what was really

0:22:58.720,0:23:03.840
funny was there was

0:23:00.559,0:23:04.960
a tweet from i think it was one of the

0:23:03.840,0:23:07.520
congressmen

0:23:04.960,0:23:08.320
from georgia that just got elected and

0:23:07.520,0:23:11.520
he

0:23:08.320,0:23:13.120
he tweeted something like thrawn is the

0:23:11.520,0:23:14.880
new trilogy

0:23:13.120,0:23:16.400
question mark question mark and everyone

0:23:14.880,0:23:17.039
thought that thrawn should have been the

0:23:16.400,0:23:20.400
trilogy

0:23:17.039,0:23:22.480
so you know so obviously one

0:23:20.400,0:23:24.640
a new star wars you know now now we know

0:23:22.480,0:23:26.640
of another star wars fan

0:23:24.640,0:23:27.840
not that you know we didn’t know that

0:23:26.640,0:23:30.720
there were a lot

0:23:27.840,0:23:31.360
out there there’s a few there’s a couple

0:23:30.720,0:23:34.640
couple

0:23:31.360,0:23:38.720
five or six million billion um

0:23:34.640,0:23:41.200
so obviously now more talk about this so

0:23:38.720,0:23:43.120
obviously i never read any of the novels

0:23:41.200,0:23:44.400
you’re very big on all the novels i

0:23:43.120,0:23:46.960
don’t think there’s one that you

0:23:44.400,0:23:48.320
haven’t read i had there’s some of the

0:23:46.960,0:23:49.120
new stuff i haven’t read because it’s

0:23:48.320,0:23:50.960
just drunk

0:23:49.120,0:23:52.960
right but overall you’ve read all the

0:23:50.960,0:23:53.200
the good stuff so all the classics all

0:23:52.960,0:23:55.919
the

0:23:53.200,0:23:56.559
other right so i think you could

0:23:55.919,0:23:59.520
probably

0:23:56.559,0:24:00.720
speak to the the fans you know that are

0:23:59.520,0:24:02.559
the hardcore

0:24:00.720,0:24:05.360
you know novel fans because again we’ve

0:24:02.559,0:24:08.400
talked about this how certain novels

0:24:05.360,0:24:10.640
were canon certain weren’t and now it’s

0:24:08.400,0:24:13.039
kind of nice that they’re

0:24:10.640,0:24:14.559
getting this one in because this is a

0:24:13.039,0:24:17.760
character that you’ve

0:24:14.559,0:24:18.400
always enjoyed this this novel series

0:24:17.760,0:24:22.000
which came

0:24:18.400,0:24:24.000
out in in the 90s really resurrected

0:24:22.000,0:24:26.000
the franchise at the time because it was

0:24:24.000,0:24:27.760
sort of dying out you were getting these

0:24:26.000,0:24:29.679
you know director release cuts that

0:24:27.760,0:24:31.919
lucas was putting out

0:24:29.679,0:24:32.960
but you got to remember this came out

0:24:31.919,0:24:34.799
before

0:24:32.960,0:24:36.799
the prequel trilogy the ritual trilogy

0:24:34.799,0:24:39.840
didn’t come out till 99

0:24:36.799,0:24:42.799
and this was what really jumpstarted

0:24:39.840,0:24:46.080
interest in the franchise again and

0:24:42.799,0:24:48.159
everybody loved it i mean

0:24:46.080,0:24:50.720
timothy zahn is a is a brilliant

0:24:48.159,0:24:53.760
brilliant writer uh he writes it

0:24:50.720,0:24:55.520
it’s such a complex level and has so

0:24:53.760,0:24:56.720
many working parts and all the novels

0:24:55.520,0:24:59.360
that he does

0:24:56.720,0:25:00.559
that it keeps you enthralled the entire

0:24:59.360,0:25:03.279
time

0:25:00.559,0:25:04.240
and this novel itself this novel series

0:25:03.279,0:25:07.840
itself

0:25:04.240,0:25:11.279
introduced us to characters who who

0:25:07.840,0:25:13.279
were mainstays in the canon

0:25:11.279,0:25:15.120
up until the point where disney took

0:25:13.279,0:25:15.600
over and and basically made it all

0:25:15.120,0:25:17.520
legends

0:25:15.600,0:25:19.279
right so you had great character

0:25:17.520,0:25:22.400
development this is where

0:25:19.279,0:25:22.799
mara jade shows up so you you eventually

0:25:22.400,0:25:25.919
see

0:25:22.799,0:25:29.120
luke and marijeet have a child and that

0:25:25.919,0:25:32.400
that spawns more and it so much came

0:25:29.120,0:25:33.600
out of this trilogy and it’s poignant to

0:25:32.400,0:25:36.320
what we’re seeing now

0:25:33.600,0:25:37.039
because one of the concepts they

0:25:36.320,0:25:40.880
introduced

0:25:37.039,0:25:42.720
in this trilogy was a concept of clones

0:25:40.880,0:25:45.520
and generating clones and force

0:25:42.720,0:25:48.080
sensitive clones and stuff like that

0:25:45.520,0:25:49.679
and there’s even later in the novel

0:25:48.080,0:25:52.720
series itself

0:25:49.679,0:25:56.559
there’s a element that was i think

0:25:52.720,0:26:01.120
borrowed in uh the expanse

0:25:56.559,0:26:04.080
with making rocks that you can’t see

0:26:01.120,0:26:05.520
okay okay so a lot of stuff that’s not

0:26:04.080,0:26:09.440
even star wars

0:26:05.520,0:26:12.080
kind of springboarded off of this series

0:26:09.440,0:26:13.440
so well written and when it came out

0:26:12.080,0:26:15.520
everyone who read it

0:26:13.440,0:26:17.120
thought this was going to be the perfect

0:26:15.520,0:26:20.320
sequel trilogy because it was set

0:26:17.120,0:26:21.919
in the right time period it was had all

0:26:20.320,0:26:23.760
the right characters in it

0:26:21.919,0:26:26.080
it had a great story and it had a

0:26:23.760,0:26:28.159
handoff point at the end there

0:26:26.080,0:26:30.799
okay so at the end of the trilogy you

0:26:28.159,0:26:32.640
could have had a legitimate handoff to

0:26:30.799,0:26:35.120
the next generation

0:26:32.640,0:26:36.320
um so it was literally the the probably

0:26:35.120,0:26:37.600
the perfect

0:26:36.320,0:26:39.760
trilogy that you could have

0:26:37.600,0:26:41.360
springboarded off of

0:26:39.760,0:26:43.840
and lucas didn’t do anything he

0:26:41.360,0:26:46.159
backtracked he did the prequels and then

0:26:43.840,0:26:47.120
sold off to disney and you know we have

0:26:46.159,0:26:50.840
what we have today

0:26:47.120,0:26:52.240
well and maybe now with you know john

0:26:50.840,0:26:55.520
favreau

0:26:52.240,0:26:57.600
you know taking such a positive step

0:26:55.520,0:26:59.919
towards everything and being such the

0:26:57.600,0:27:02.799
fanboy that he is

0:26:59.919,0:27:04.080
we’re gonna get what you know that is

0:27:02.799,0:27:07.840
what you’ve been looking for

0:27:04.080,0:27:07.840
but is favro heading up this project

0:27:08.080,0:27:11.360
they haven’t released these right they

0:27:09.600,0:27:14.720
haven’t released any information

0:27:11.360,0:27:15.039
but it’s very possible that this could

0:27:14.720,0:27:19.919
go

0:27:15.039,0:27:21.919
to patty jenkins and after that

0:27:19.919,0:27:25.279
spaghetti mess of a movie this

0:27:21.919,0:27:27.039
wonder woman 1984 was i really don’t

0:27:25.279,0:27:28.799
want to see her take something like this

0:27:27.039,0:27:31.440
over

0:27:28.799,0:27:33.200
but anyway it’s good news anyway the

0:27:31.440,0:27:35.279
resurrecting one of the best novels

0:27:33.200,0:27:36.399
in the history of star wars bringing it

0:27:35.279,0:27:38.720
back in

0:27:36.399,0:27:40.799
uh they’ve brought elements and pieces

0:27:38.720,0:27:42.159
of it here and there but

0:27:40.799,0:27:44.000
it’s definitely going to be nice to see

0:27:42.159,0:27:46.559
it kind of yeah

0:27:44.000,0:27:47.360
so what else do we have in star wars so

0:27:46.559,0:27:51.120
and then in

0:27:47.360,0:27:54.080
on the gaming side of things uh ubisoft

0:27:51.120,0:27:54.799
uh announced the open world star wars

0:27:54.080,0:27:56.320
game

0:27:54.799,0:27:58.559
they announced that they would be

0:27:56.320,0:28:02.399
working on an open world

0:27:58.559,0:28:05.440
game set in the star wars universe um

0:28:02.399,0:28:09.039
it’s and there hasn’t really been

0:28:05.440,0:28:11.840
too much uh talk of what it was gonna

0:28:09.039,0:28:13.679
kind of be like i know i had heard on

0:28:11.840,0:28:15.520
the radio they were even talking about

0:28:13.679,0:28:16.559
and trying to figure out is it something

0:28:15.520,0:28:19.279
where

0:28:16.559,0:28:20.720
you know it’s kind of all players is it

0:28:19.279,0:28:22.640
all time frames there

0:28:20.720,0:28:24.880
i don’t think there was really much

0:28:22.640,0:28:25.520
about it but the big news like you had

0:28:24.880,0:28:28.320
mentioned

0:28:25.520,0:28:29.120
that that this uh is the first time that

0:28:28.320,0:28:32.320
a company

0:28:29.120,0:28:34.559
outside of ea is going to produce

0:28:32.320,0:28:35.679
a star wars game since disney acquired

0:28:34.559,0:28:39.360
lucasfilms

0:28:35.679,0:28:40.480
in 2012. uh ea has famously produced

0:28:39.360,0:28:43.440
star wars games

0:28:40.480,0:28:44.240
for nearly eight years and now here is a

0:28:43.440,0:28:47.520
chance

0:28:44.240,0:28:50.640
you know for someone else to to step in

0:28:47.520,0:28:54.320
and and produce some of these uh

0:28:50.640,0:28:57.919
some of these games well we say

0:28:54.320,0:29:00.399
they’ve famously produced them for

0:28:57.919,0:29:03.520
and i think a more apt description would

0:29:00.399,0:29:05.440
be infamously produced okay

0:29:03.520,0:29:06.799
you know you’ve got they re they

0:29:05.440,0:29:08.799
resurrected

0:29:06.799,0:29:10.240
battlefront so they got battlefront 1

0:29:08.799,0:29:12.480
battlefront 2 out of them

0:29:10.240,0:29:14.320
which was a remake of a game that

0:29:12.480,0:29:17.760
lucasfilm had put out

0:29:14.320,0:29:18.880
uh years ago and they eventually got it

0:29:17.760,0:29:20.640
right

0:29:18.880,0:29:22.960
but they were terrible to start out in

0:29:20.640,0:29:25.360
fact in fact battlefront

0:29:22.960,0:29:26.880
battlefield front one was still not a

0:29:25.360,0:29:30.159
very good game

0:29:26.880,0:29:33.360
battlefront 2 they came out with and the

0:29:30.159,0:29:34.000
game play was okay the story was alright

0:29:33.360,0:29:37.279
they they

0:29:34.000,0:29:39.600
stuck elements of the continuing star

0:29:37.279,0:29:42.310
wars story in the game itself

0:29:39.600,0:29:44.399
so parts of that emerged in

0:29:42.310,0:29:48.240
[Music]

0:29:44.399,0:29:50.880
mandalorian and and the sequel trilogy

0:29:48.240,0:29:51.520
the problem you run into is that nobody

0:29:50.880,0:29:54.799
knows

0:29:51.520,0:29:56.480
because very few you know casual fans

0:29:54.799,0:29:57.120
played the game and and played it for

0:29:56.480,0:30:00.080
the story

0:29:57.120,0:30:01.600
okay so this sort of goes back into the

0:30:00.080,0:30:02.159
methodology that they had before where

0:30:01.600,0:30:04.000
they’re

0:30:02.159,0:30:06.480
sticking story elements in places people

0:30:04.000,0:30:10.159
aren’t going to see them

0:30:06.480,0:30:13.279
but um ea

0:30:10.159,0:30:14.640
is famous for monetizing their games so

0:30:13.279,0:30:18.000
there was a lot of

0:30:14.640,0:30:18.559
controversy about the pay to win aspect

0:30:18.000,0:30:21.600
of

0:30:18.559,0:30:24.720
uh battlefront when it came out uh they

0:30:21.600,0:30:28.480
recently released

0:30:24.720,0:30:31.440
uh squadrons which is okay

0:30:28.480,0:30:32.880
and it’s not it was it was riddled with

0:30:31.440,0:30:34.880
bugs when it came in right

0:30:32.880,0:30:37.360
right pretty much everything that ea

0:30:34.880,0:30:38.640
comes out with but the big game that ea

0:30:37.360,0:30:41.679
has right now is

0:30:38.640,0:30:44.720
star wars the old republic which is

0:30:41.679,0:30:48.080
the current open world as much as

0:30:44.720,0:30:49.679
as open as it can be right

0:30:48.080,0:30:51.360
but prior to this the only other open

0:30:49.679,0:30:54.640
world star wars game you had was star

0:30:51.360,0:30:58.399
wars galaxies that was put out by sony

0:30:54.640,0:31:00.640
and that was huge that was a huge

0:30:58.399,0:31:03.519
universe compared to what you get with

0:31:00.640,0:31:04.080
star wars the old republic uh in fact

0:31:03.519,0:31:06.320
when when

0:31:04.080,0:31:08.960
star wars the old republic came out it

0:31:06.320,0:31:10.880
was kind of disappointing that it was

0:31:08.960,0:31:13.760
very different it was a very cookie

0:31:10.880,0:31:16.960
cutter mmo style game

0:31:13.760,0:31:18.960
that was very limited very small in

0:31:16.960,0:31:20.240
scope compared to what galaxies was

0:31:18.960,0:31:22.480
[Music]

0:31:20.240,0:31:24.720
and it was just people were expecting

0:31:22.480,0:31:27.840
kind of galaxies too and it wasn’t

0:31:24.720,0:31:29.600
it wasn’t along those lines so

0:31:27.840,0:31:31.600
another open world star wars game i

0:31:29.600,0:31:34.240
think would be welcome if it was along

0:31:31.600,0:31:36.320
the lines of galaxy

0:31:34.240,0:31:37.360
but the fact that ea is not the only

0:31:36.320,0:31:39.840
company

0:31:37.360,0:31:41.919
that’s in the game now making these

0:31:39.840,0:31:43.519
whether it’s ubisoft or whoever else is

0:31:41.919,0:31:45.039
out there

0:31:43.519,0:31:46.159
opening that license up i think is

0:31:45.039,0:31:47.760
probably the smartest thing that

0:31:46.159,0:31:51.279
disney’s done so far

0:31:47.760,0:31:52.559
with the gaming licenses i would love to

0:31:51.279,0:31:55.120
see them do the same thing with their

0:31:52.559,0:31:57.600
tabletop gaming

0:31:55.120,0:31:58.799
yeah you know when when i was into star

0:31:57.600,0:32:01.919
wars miniatures

0:31:58.799,0:32:04.880
and you were really really into it

0:32:01.919,0:32:06.000
yeah um wizards of the coast had the

0:32:04.880,0:32:08.240
license

0:32:06.000,0:32:09.039
and they eventually wound up giving up

0:32:08.240,0:32:12.880
the license

0:32:09.039,0:32:14.880
to fantasy flight and i just do not like

0:32:12.880,0:32:17.919
fantas the mechanics that fantasy flight

0:32:14.880,0:32:19.919
does it’s a very proprietary

0:32:17.919,0:32:21.679
system that they use they use their own

0:32:19.919,0:32:23.600
dice their own markers you know their

0:32:21.679,0:32:25.519
own accessories and

0:32:23.600,0:32:27.440
you know if you want to play their game

0:32:25.519,0:32:29.600
you’ve got to buy it from them and they

0:32:27.440,0:32:32.799
are exceedingly expensive

0:32:29.600,0:32:34.799
as far as games go right whereas with

0:32:32.799,0:32:36.000
uh the wizards of the coast it was a d20

0:32:34.799,0:32:37.600
based game so right

0:32:36.000,0:32:40.880
you go out and buy that stuff anywhere

0:32:37.600,0:32:44.080
you want it just made a lot more sense

0:32:40.880,0:32:46.399
but the other thing is is that

0:32:44.080,0:32:47.440
lucas has always been notorious about

0:32:46.399,0:32:49.120
its licensing

0:32:47.440,0:32:52.559
right like it’s one of those things

0:32:49.120,0:32:54.640
where it’s star wars right so

0:32:52.559,0:32:55.679
you’ll make money no matter what like

0:32:54.640,0:32:58.720
people are going to buy

0:32:55.679,0:32:59.120
right right the the sequel trilogy kind

0:32:58.720,0:33:01.440
of

0:32:59.120,0:33:02.799
kind of proves that no matter how bad it

0:33:01.440,0:33:05.679
is star wars you’re still

0:33:02.799,0:33:07.919
right still going to buy it right right

0:33:05.679,0:33:09.360
but they have exceedingly high demands

0:33:07.919,0:33:11.679
traditionally

0:33:09.360,0:33:13.039
there’s a high cost to licensing it so

0:33:11.679,0:33:15.919
your profit margins

0:33:13.039,0:33:18.159
are significantly reduced but they also

0:33:15.919,0:33:19.519
exert a tremendous amount of control

0:33:18.159,0:33:21.039
over it

0:33:19.519,0:33:22.720
like for instance there were stories

0:33:21.039,0:33:25.200
when

0:33:22.720,0:33:27.120
i was into star wars miniatures where

0:33:25.200,0:33:30.399
they would come out with a set

0:33:27.120,0:33:32.320
uh every three to four months

0:33:30.399,0:33:34.559
and the set usually consisted of 60

0:33:32.320,0:33:35.919
figures well every single one of those

0:33:34.559,0:33:38.480
figures

0:33:35.919,0:33:39.919
had to go through its development phase

0:33:38.480,0:33:43.600
and get approval

0:33:39.919,0:33:45.279
from from lucas

0:33:43.600,0:33:47.039
with all their abilities and everything

0:33:45.279,0:33:50.240
else before they could even be

0:33:47.039,0:33:51.679
allowed to make the thing wow and

0:33:50.240,0:33:53.679
and they exerted some of the same

0:33:51.679,0:33:57.360
control over the games here i’m only

0:33:53.679,0:34:02.000
meaning excuse me uh mainly because

0:33:57.360,0:34:02.000
of the story elements involved okay so

0:34:02.159,0:34:06.320
lucasfilm has kind of a reputation for

0:34:05.039,0:34:08.399
being one of the more

0:34:06.320,0:34:10.000
difficult licensing companies out there

0:34:08.399,0:34:11.200
to work with when you’re making their

0:34:10.000,0:34:12.960
products

0:34:11.200,0:34:14.320
uh the figures are the same way you know

0:34:12.960,0:34:16.159
hasbro had the figures

0:34:14.320,0:34:18.240
right everything has to be approved at

0:34:16.159,0:34:20.240
the highest level

0:34:18.240,0:34:21.919
so opening this up i don’t know if it’s

0:34:20.240,0:34:24.800
going to make the process better but i

0:34:21.919,0:34:27.760
think giving it to someone other than ea

0:34:24.800,0:34:29.440
who these days come across really just a

0:34:27.760,0:34:31.520
bunch of software mercenaries at this

0:34:29.440,0:34:32.960
point they want to crank something out

0:34:31.520,0:34:36.960
and they want to milk it for as much as

0:34:32.960,0:34:38.800
they can get and it ruins the experience

0:34:36.960,0:34:40.399
so hopefully having this open up here is

0:34:38.800,0:34:42.800
going to be a good thing for everybody

0:34:40.399,0:34:45.520
you know not just disney and star wars

0:34:42.800,0:34:48.480
but for all the fans as well

0:34:45.520,0:34:49.359
so good news all around bad news on the

0:34:48.480,0:34:52.560
disney front

0:34:49.359,0:34:54.399
and good news on the star wars up front

0:34:52.560,0:34:56.159
so at least there’s something positive

0:34:54.399,0:34:58.880
there’s a there’s a good trade there

0:34:56.159,0:35:00.800
there you go so let’s take a quick break

0:34:58.880,0:35:02.560
i’ll get a drink and clear my throat

0:35:00.800,0:35:05.200

dun dun dun dun dun

0:36:28.480,0:36:33.520
so chris evans is reportedly in talks to

0:36:32.160,0:36:37.040
reprise his role

0:36:33.520,0:36:40.160
as captain america in a future mcu

0:36:37.040,0:36:43.359
film and the news has sent fans into a

0:36:40.160,0:36:45.200
frenzy so according to deadline there is

0:36:43.359,0:36:47.760
no official confirmation

0:36:45.200,0:36:49.040
that a deal has been finalized but

0:36:47.760,0:36:51.599
sources ava

0:36:49.040,0:36:53.200
advised the outlet that evans and marvel

0:36:51.599,0:36:56.160
have been discussing it

0:36:53.200,0:36:58.079
and that he is open to returning uh

0:36:56.160,0:37:00.560
deadline noted that it reached out to

0:36:58.079,0:37:03.359
marvel about the rumors and the company

0:37:00.560,0:37:04.960
has no comment uh evans had made it

0:37:03.359,0:37:06.240
clear in the past that he was not

0:37:04.960,0:37:08.560
picking the shield back up

0:37:06.240,0:37:10.240
after avengers end game and had even

0:37:08.560,0:37:12.800
passed the mantle to

0:37:10.240,0:37:14.560
uh anthony mackey’s character sam wilson

0:37:12.800,0:37:18.240
at the end of the film

0:37:14.560,0:37:19.119
uh so now you know there’s a lot of

0:37:18.240,0:37:22.240
speculation

0:37:19.119,0:37:24.640
as to how he could even return

0:37:22.240,0:37:27.200
would it be through time travel would it

0:37:24.640,0:37:30.800
be a multi-verse storyline

0:37:27.200,0:37:33.839
being introduced obviously possibilities

0:37:30.800,0:37:37.599
you know are kind of endless but

0:37:33.839,0:37:39.680
again twitter was all abuzz

0:37:37.599,0:37:40.720
with you know news that this could

0:37:39.680,0:37:42.800
possibly happen

0:37:40.720,0:37:44.160
and everybody was just like yes of

0:37:42.800,0:37:47.359
course we want you back

0:37:44.160,0:37:47.760
so you know who knows maybe it’ll be

0:37:47.359,0:37:50.800
true

0:37:47.760,0:37:54.320
maybe you know just kind of hearsay

0:37:50.800,0:37:55.839
to kind of bring some light to the mcu

0:37:54.320,0:37:56.480
who you know who knows but it would be

0:37:55.839,0:37:58.400
kind of

0:37:56.480,0:38:00.079
interesting to see how they would do i

0:37:58.400,0:38:04.160
could totally see them doing it

0:38:00.079,0:38:07.200
as like a flashbacky type um

0:38:04.160,0:38:07.760
thing but again you know we haven’t seen

0:38:07.200,0:38:10.320
any of

0:38:07.760,0:38:12.000
like the new stuff as to where the

0:38:10.320,0:38:15.280
timeline goes yet

0:38:12.000,0:38:16.960
after uh end game so it should be

0:38:15.280,0:38:19.040
you know well the other thing that’s

0:38:16.960,0:38:21.920
worth noting is

0:38:19.040,0:38:23.040
marvel is famous for killing characters

0:38:21.920,0:38:26.000
and bringing them back

0:38:23.040,0:38:26.960
and for multiple universes right you

0:38:26.000,0:38:29.520
know we’ve got

0:38:26.960,0:38:31.359
um dr strange coming out with the

0:38:29.520,0:38:34.240
multiverse

0:38:31.359,0:38:35.680
you have uh spider-man and the

0:38:34.240,0:38:37.920
spider-verse

0:38:35.680,0:38:40.400
so there’s different parallel universes

0:38:37.920,0:38:42.079
that this could happen in

0:38:40.400,0:38:45.200
they’ve already obviously dabbled in

0:38:42.079,0:38:47.839
time travel right so you might see that

0:38:45.200,0:38:49.280
there’s a history there was one comic

0:38:47.839,0:38:51.680
series that i read that was

0:38:49.280,0:38:53.040
actually very good where uh captain

0:38:51.680,0:38:56.800
america

0:38:53.040,0:38:59.520
meets wolverine in world war ii and and

0:38:56.800,0:39:01.119
fighting together in world war so there

0:38:59.520,0:39:02.640
there could be a whole offshoot of that

0:39:01.119,0:39:05.200
where it has nothing to do with

0:39:02.640,0:39:06.640
what the current phase of the marvel

0:39:05.200,0:39:08.480
cinematic universe is in

0:39:06.640,0:39:10.880
right right so there’s so much that they

0:39:08.480,0:39:10.880
can do

0:39:10.960,0:39:15.200
that the possibilities really are

0:39:12.720,0:39:18.240
endless on this one

0:39:15.200,0:39:22.960
i would certainly welcome it uh he

0:39:18.240,0:39:25.200
probably was you know outside of

0:39:22.960,0:39:28.240
robert downey jr as tony stark he

0:39:25.200,0:39:30.560
probably embodied the character that he

0:39:28.240,0:39:31.680
portrayed more than just about anybody

0:39:30.560,0:39:35.599
else yeah

0:39:31.680,0:39:35.599
yeah perfect for the character

0:39:35.680,0:39:39.920
especially after they had him as human

0:39:37.599,0:39:41.839
torch and fantastic form before that

0:39:39.920,0:39:42.960
didn’t really fit too well on that one

0:39:41.839,0:39:44.320
right right

0:39:42.960,0:39:46.240
but it’s a great character it’s a

0:39:44.320,0:39:50.720
character that has has been

0:39:46.240,0:39:52.480
a a leading figure a commanding figure

0:39:50.720,0:39:52.800
in the marvel cinematic universe and i

0:39:52.480,0:39:55.520
think

0:39:52.800,0:39:56.079
not having that character and just the

0:39:55.520,0:39:59.920
marvel

0:39:56.079,0:40:03.119
universe you know right for

0:39:59.920,0:40:03.760
so long you know as well so how can you

0:40:03.119,0:40:07.119
just

0:40:03.760,0:40:10.400
not have a captain america exactly

0:40:07.119,0:40:10.880
and you know we look at the tragic loss

0:40:10.400,0:40:13.040
of

0:40:10.880,0:40:14.720
chadwick boseman who was a rising star

0:40:13.040,0:40:15.280
who was going to take over that leading

0:40:14.720,0:40:18.079
role

0:40:15.280,0:40:19.839
in the marvel cinematic universe and we

0:40:18.079,0:40:22.240
have this vacancy now that

0:40:19.839,0:40:22.960
right i think you kind of need to bring

0:40:22.240,0:40:26.000
cap back

0:40:22.960,0:40:29.280
in fill that gap until

0:40:26.000,0:40:29.920
we can we can find a more permanent

0:40:29.280,0:40:33.280
solution

0:40:29.920,0:40:36.400
there yeah so but anyway

0:40:33.280,0:40:38.079
good news if if he is coming back so

0:40:36.400,0:40:40.000
what else do we have we’ve got walking

0:40:38.079,0:40:42.160
dead news don’t worry so yeah so

0:40:40.000,0:40:45.280
walking dead is actually going to be

0:40:42.160,0:40:48.800
returning for an extended season 10

0:40:45.280,0:40:51.680
um that’ll be it’ll be six new episodes

0:40:48.800,0:40:52.560
uh that’ll be happening in february

0:40:51.680,0:40:56.240
season 10

0:40:52.560,0:40:56.880
kind of it had ended they didn’t get to

0:40:56.240,0:40:59.920
show

0:40:56.880,0:41:02.240
the season finale because

0:40:59.920,0:41:04.160
kovid had hid and they were still in

0:41:02.240,0:41:07.440
post-production and things like that

0:41:04.160,0:41:10.160
and then they kind of extended uh

0:41:07.440,0:41:11.359
they they kind of added on to the season

0:41:10.160,0:41:13.680
and added these six

0:41:11.359,0:41:15.920
extra episodes which will be coming out

0:41:13.680,0:41:19.680
and this is where we will now get to see

0:41:15.920,0:41:23.520
negan and maggie meeting again

0:41:19.680,0:41:26.640
where they haven’t seen each other

0:41:23.520,0:41:30.480
in more than seven years when

0:41:26.640,0:41:33.040
they had a conflict in in season nine

0:41:30.480,0:41:33.520
so this will be kind of a big deal

0:41:33.040,0:41:37.280
because

0:41:33.520,0:41:39.520
obviously uh there is no love lost

0:41:37.280,0:41:43.440
between these two characters since

0:41:39.520,0:41:46.319
negan kind of uh negan made maggie a

0:41:43.440,0:41:48.000
a widow uh since he was the one that

0:41:46.319,0:41:49.760
that killed off glenn

0:41:48.000,0:41:52.079
uh which there are still people that are

0:41:49.760,0:41:54.480
very bitter about that even though

0:41:52.079,0:41:55.599
it had happened in the comics years

0:41:54.480,0:41:57.599
before

0:41:55.599,0:41:59.760
and i know plenty of people that

0:41:57.599,0:42:01.280
actually stopped watching walking dead

0:41:59.760,0:42:04.000
after that happened because they were

0:42:01.280,0:42:06.640
like how could you do that like well

0:42:04.000,0:42:08.640
they they knew it was gonna happen it

0:42:06.640,0:42:12.000
was already in the comics but anyway

0:42:08.640,0:42:14.480
uh so it’ll be interesting to to see

0:42:12.000,0:42:17.040
how their their paths crossed uh they

0:42:14.480,0:42:19.119
had done a virtual table read

0:42:17.040,0:42:20.560
uh back in october and there was a clip

0:42:19.119,0:42:24.400
that kind of came out

0:42:20.560,0:42:27.359
and uh so maggie kind of tells negan oh

0:42:24.400,0:42:28.000
you’re out um and he goes well i didn’t

0:42:27.359,0:42:30.640
escape

0:42:28.000,0:42:31.119
if that’s what you’re thinking um then

0:42:30.640,0:42:33.680
can

0:42:31.119,0:42:35.520
it seems that carol confesses to maggie

0:42:33.680,0:42:37.520
about letting him out of jail

0:42:35.520,0:42:39.040
and explains that they were about to

0:42:37.520,0:42:42.480
lose everything

0:42:39.040,0:42:43.040
and that he actually helped with the

0:42:42.480,0:42:46.400
plot

0:42:43.040,0:42:48.079
of the whisperers and you know after

0:42:46.400,0:42:50.800
they lost so many

0:42:48.079,0:42:51.839
of their people because of it this was

0:42:50.800,0:42:54.480
really the only thing

0:42:51.839,0:42:56.240
you know that they could do so it’ll be

0:42:54.480,0:42:59.359
interesting to see

0:42:56.240,0:43:02.079
you know how she reacts to

0:42:59.359,0:43:03.440
you know to all of this and and the

0:43:02.079,0:43:04.560
other interesting thing is that we’re

0:43:03.440,0:43:08.079
gonna see

0:43:04.560,0:43:10.880
um some backstory from negan

0:43:08.079,0:43:12.000
uh we’re gonna see what life was like

0:43:10.880,0:43:15.200
before everything

0:43:12.000,0:43:17.680
happened and his real-life wife uh

0:43:15.200,0:43:19.520
is actually playing lucille in these

0:43:17.680,0:43:22.079
flashbacks so

0:43:19.520,0:43:23.119
that’ll be kind of uh interesting to to

0:43:22.079,0:43:25.680
see as well so they

0:43:23.119,0:43:27.760
they return the end of february uh you

0:43:25.680,0:43:29.440
know for six episodes so looking forward

0:43:27.760,0:43:31.920
to it yeah i think it’s very cool

0:43:29.440,0:43:32.800
i’m excited to get maggie back in the

0:43:31.920,0:43:35.520
mix of things

0:43:32.800,0:43:37.359
right i think we kind of know the

0:43:35.520,0:43:40.480
direction that it’s going assuming

0:43:37.359,0:43:41.200
it’s right to the comic uh timeline and

0:43:40.480,0:43:43.280
so forth

0:43:41.200,0:43:45.359
right so that’ll be a dramatic turn for

0:43:43.280,0:43:48.079
the show itself

0:43:45.359,0:43:48.560
and you know we absolutely love jeffrey

0:43:48.079,0:43:51.520
dean

0:43:48.560,0:43:52.880
oh absolutely fantastic so it’ll

0:43:51.520,0:43:54.079
definitely be good to see him come back

0:43:52.880,0:43:57.280
and see what that dynamic

0:43:54.079,0:43:59.200
is yeah yeah so that was all we had for

0:43:57.280,0:44:00.880
our entertainment news this week

0:43:59.200,0:44:08.560
yep we’ll be right back with our

0:44:00.880,0:44:11.520
insightful picks of the week

0:44:08.560,0:44:14.340
go for your insightful pick so my

0:44:11.520,0:44:15.760
insightful pick is a documentary

0:44:14.340,0:44:19.359
[Music]

0:44:15.760,0:44:20.880
that never happens um this is one that

0:44:19.359,0:44:24.480
actually popped up

0:44:20.880,0:44:26.800
um on my netflix uh after

0:44:24.480,0:44:28.079
like hey things you might be interested

0:44:26.800,0:44:31.680
in um

0:44:28.079,0:44:34.880
with english accents how’d you know

0:44:31.680,0:44:38.319
um so

0:44:34.880,0:44:41.440
this popped up after we had finished uh

0:44:38.319,0:44:44.400
the the uh most recent episode

0:44:41.440,0:44:46.160
uh season of the crown um so the

0:44:44.400,0:44:48.960
documentary is the royal

0:44:46.160,0:44:50.720
house of windsor um and it actually came

0:44:48.960,0:44:54.000
out in 2017

0:44:50.720,0:44:55.440
so uh not as up to date as

0:44:54.000,0:44:57.040
some of the other documentaries but

0:44:55.440,0:44:58.560
again you know

0:44:57.040,0:45:00.480
pretty pretty up to date for the most

0:44:58.560,0:45:02.240
part um

0:45:00.480,0:45:04.400
the documentary series explores the

0:45:02.240,0:45:07.839
history of the windsor dynasty

0:45:04.400,0:45:09.839
which was founded in 1917 when

0:45:07.839,0:45:10.960
germany and britain were at war a

0:45:09.839,0:45:13.280
combination of

0:45:10.960,0:45:14.960
new research and evidence assistance

0:45:13.280,0:45:17.680
from family insiders

0:45:14.960,0:45:19.920
and access to windsor castles royal

0:45:17.680,0:45:21.680
archives has provided an understanding

0:45:19.920,0:45:24.400
of how this royal family

0:45:21.680,0:45:26.400
has survived a century of great change

0:45:24.400,0:45:28.960
we learn how george v

0:45:26.400,0:45:30.640
rebranded the family from its uh

0:45:28.960,0:45:33.280
original german roots

0:45:30.640,0:45:34.720
and now edward uh the eighth almost

0:45:33.280,0:45:37.960
ruined the dynasty

0:45:34.720,0:45:41.280
with his advocation in uh

0:45:37.960,0:45:42.720

  1. uh what’s really interesting is

0:45:41.280,0:45:46.640
again

0:45:42.720,0:45:48.240
watching the crown um and we know that

0:45:46.640,0:45:51.680
there’s parts of it that

0:45:48.240,0:45:55.119
are uh the um

0:45:51.680,0:45:57.440
the fabrication of the creative license

0:45:55.119,0:45:58.240
of the story but what’s interesting is

0:45:57.440,0:46:01.280
to see

0:45:58.240,0:46:01.760
in the documentary how much they really

0:46:01.280,0:46:05.839
do

0:46:01.760,0:46:08.960
follow you know the the timeline and and

0:46:05.839,0:46:11.520
you know most of the events um

0:46:08.960,0:46:12.640
because what was interesting to see was

0:46:11.520,0:46:16.560
certain

0:46:12.640,0:46:19.440
scenes play out uh film footage and and

0:46:16.560,0:46:19.920
and whatnot in the documentary that we

0:46:19.440,0:46:23.040
saw

0:46:19.920,0:46:27.040
reenacted in the crown

0:46:23.040,0:46:30.240
so it was kind of a nice um

0:46:27.040,0:46:31.839
accompanied uh uh

0:46:30.240,0:46:33.200
show to watch if it’s something that

0:46:31.839,0:46:34.720
you’re interested in the crown and want

0:46:33.200,0:46:38.000
to know a little bit more

0:46:34.720,0:46:41.119
history uh behind certain things uh

0:46:38.000,0:46:44.560
you know it does a very good job of

0:46:41.119,0:46:47.040
you know it there’s a whole uh

0:46:44.560,0:46:48.560
you know thing where they talk about you

0:46:47.040,0:46:51.280
know the queen mother

0:46:48.560,0:46:52.000
and you really don’t see it as much in

0:46:51.280,0:46:54.839
the crown

0:46:52.000,0:46:57.599
you see it a little bit but you

0:46:54.839,0:46:58.800
understand more of her power and how

0:46:57.599,0:47:02.079
powerful she

0:46:58.800,0:47:04.319
really was long after

0:47:02.079,0:47:05.680
her daughter became queen like she

0:47:04.319,0:47:09.359
didn’t want to let go

0:47:05.680,0:47:12.480
of being queen she felt she still had

0:47:09.359,0:47:15.119
you know more to do and and how much

0:47:12.480,0:47:16.000
um you know behind the scenes stuff she

0:47:15.119,0:47:19.200
really did

0:47:16.000,0:47:22.880
and then you get to see also with uh

0:47:19.200,0:47:25.359
prince philip and princess diana

0:47:22.880,0:47:26.720
how much they had in common because they

0:47:25.359,0:47:29.520
were outsiders

0:47:26.720,0:47:30.960
to the rest of of the family and and how

0:47:29.520,0:47:33.040
much they kind of

0:47:30.960,0:47:34.400
you know prince philip actually tried to

0:47:33.040,0:47:36.880
help her

0:47:34.400,0:47:37.680
in in certain things when when things

0:47:36.880,0:47:40.720
started

0:47:37.680,0:47:43.839
you know going downhill and um so

0:47:40.720,0:47:47.520
very interesting again it plays up until

0:47:43.839,0:47:50.720
uh um you know 2017. so it’s again

0:47:47.520,0:47:53.359
pretty pretty recent um and and

0:47:50.720,0:47:54.800
again if you’re a fan of the crown this

0:47:53.359,0:47:56.640
is a nice little

0:47:54.800,0:47:58.240
you know tied you over until the next

0:47:56.640,0:48:00.079
season because again

0:47:58.240,0:48:02.240
because it’s a little bit more current

0:48:00.079,0:48:03.040
you can kind of get little hints as to

0:48:02.240,0:48:05.359
where

0:48:03.040,0:48:07.200
the crown for the next season might be

0:48:05.359,0:48:10.319
going with more of these future

0:48:07.200,0:48:12.559
you know things going on okay great pick

0:48:10.319,0:48:12.559
thank you

0:48:14.290,0:48:16.400
[Applause]

0:48:15.100,0:48:19.119
[Music]

0:48:16.400,0:48:20.079
so my pick this week is not a

0:48:19.119,0:48:22.319
documentary

0:48:20.079,0:48:24.880
it’s actually kind of a bit of a retread

0:48:22.319,0:48:27.839
that i’ve had in the past and that is

0:48:24.880,0:48:29.599
the expanse season five now i’ve been a

0:48:27.839,0:48:31.920
huge fan of the expansion

0:48:29.599,0:48:33.440
yes you have very early on i’ve read all

0:48:31.920,0:48:36.640
the books

0:48:33.440,0:48:39.040
i’m anxiously if not impatiently

0:48:36.640,0:48:40.480
waiting uh book nine to be released in

0:48:39.040,0:48:43.040
the coming months

0:48:40.480,0:48:44.240
to kind of finish out the whole story

0:48:43.040,0:48:46.640
but season five

0:48:44.240,0:48:48.960
actually centers around the novel

0:48:46.640,0:48:50.000
nemesis games and it includes some plot

0:48:48.960,0:48:53.440
elements from

0:48:50.000,0:48:56.640
the novel babylon’s ashes

0:48:53.440,0:48:58.960
so the season premiered december 16th

0:48:56.640,0:49:00.160
three episodes dropped at release and

0:48:58.960,0:49:03.359
then they’re releasing

0:49:00.160,0:49:06.079

up until february 3rd so we’re about

0:49:06.079,0:49:11.119
five in i think at this point i think so

0:49:08.319,0:49:12.400
so we’re pretty far into the the season

0:49:11.119,0:49:15.040
right now

0:49:12.400,0:49:17.200
season five of the series picks up as

0:49:15.040,0:49:18.400
multitudes of humans leave the solar

0:49:17.200,0:49:20.960
system

0:49:18.400,0:49:22.960
in search of new homes and vast fortunes

0:49:20.960,0:49:24.640
on the earth-like worlds beyond the

0:49:22.960,0:49:26.839
alien ring

0:49:24.640,0:49:28.000
and a heavy price for centuries of

0:49:26.839,0:49:30.800
exploitation

0:49:28.000,0:49:33.359
of the belt finally comes due and a

0:49:30.800,0:49:35.440
reckoning is at hand

0:49:33.359,0:49:37.440
for the crew of the ross and auntie and

0:49:35.440,0:49:39.920
the leaders of the inner planets

0:49:37.440,0:49:40.640
and the belt the past and present

0:49:39.920,0:49:43.280
converge

0:49:40.640,0:49:45.200
bringing forth personal challenges that

0:49:43.280,0:49:47.440
have wide-reaching repercussions

0:49:45.200,0:49:49.040
throughout the solar system

0:49:47.440,0:49:50.880
in different parts of the solar system

0:49:49.040,0:49:52.800
the crew of the rosconti

0:49:50.880,0:49:54.079
and their allies confront the sins of

0:49:52.800,0:49:57.280
their past

0:49:54.079,0:49:59.520
while marco anarios unleashes an

0:49:57.280,0:50:00.319
attack that will alter the future of

0:49:59.520,0:50:03.119
earth

0:50:00.319,0:50:05.440
mars the belt and the worlds beyond the

0:50:03.119,0:50:05.440
ring

0:50:06.640,0:50:10.240
the novel itself was was very well done

0:50:08.880,0:50:12.000
and when i read the novel i

0:50:10.240,0:50:14.079
tried to envision how they were going to

0:50:12.000,0:50:16.079
pull off some of the effects that

0:50:14.079,0:50:17.520
happened in the novel

0:50:16.079,0:50:19.359
and i didn’t think they were going to do

0:50:17.520,0:50:21.520
it very well so

0:50:19.359,0:50:22.559
in watching the series and seeing how

0:50:21.520,0:50:25.359
they’re doing these

0:50:22.559,0:50:26.000
these scenes i’m very impressed you can

0:50:25.359,0:50:28.480
tell that

0:50:26.000,0:50:30.000
amazon since they’ve taken it over have

0:50:28.480,0:50:31.599
really dropped a lot of money in the

0:50:30.000,0:50:32.960
budget you’re getting a lot of great

0:50:31.599,0:50:34.960
cinematic

0:50:32.960,0:50:36.800
shots especially the space shots you’re

0:50:34.960,0:50:39.760
seeing some of the externals of the

0:50:36.800,0:50:41.680
space stations now

0:50:39.760,0:50:43.440
they’re doing a fantastic job with it

0:50:41.680,0:50:44.400
the story picks up right where it left

0:50:43.440,0:50:48.640
off

0:50:44.400,0:50:50.559
it sticks very closely to the novels

0:50:48.640,0:50:51.920
but and that’s kind of how the the the

0:50:50.559,0:50:56.000
rest of the series

0:50:51.920,0:50:59.119
seasons have gone as well they’ve made

0:50:56.000,0:51:00.319
changes because there’s eight novels

0:50:59.119,0:51:02.400
right now that are out

0:51:00.319,0:51:04.000
and then there’s a couple of novellas

0:51:02.400,0:51:05.280
that are out that are short stories that

0:51:04.000,0:51:07.359
accompany them

0:51:05.280,0:51:09.200
and the previous seasons have actually

0:51:07.359,0:51:11.680
incorporated the short stories

0:51:09.200,0:51:14.160
into the seasons themselves you’ll

0:51:11.680,0:51:16.800
remember the one episode where

0:51:14.160,0:51:18.000
they describe the the uh discover the

0:51:16.800,0:51:19.680
epstein drive

0:51:18.000,0:51:21.920
right you know has that that was

0:51:19.680,0:51:22.640
actually out of a one of the novellas

0:51:21.920,0:51:25.920
okay

0:51:22.640,0:51:26.880
um so there’s an episode out of the one

0:51:25.920,0:51:29.040
of the

0:51:26.880,0:51:30.720
novellas that’s coming up in this season

0:51:29.040,0:51:32.480
too which should be very interesting

0:51:30.720,0:51:34.079
because it really contributed to

0:51:32.480,0:51:35.760
some of the backstory of one of the key

0:51:34.079,0:51:37.599
characters

0:51:35.760,0:51:39.680
so the season itself is fantastic i

0:51:37.599,0:51:42.400
can’t wait to watch the rest of it

0:51:39.680,0:51:43.680
and assuming that amazon is going to

0:51:42.400,0:51:45.200
continue with it

0:51:43.680,0:51:46.480
it should be a great story moving

0:51:45.200,0:51:47.040
forward because there’s a lot of great

0:51:46.480,0:51:49.680
stuff

0:51:47.040,0:51:50.640
left to tell from the novels in this so

0:51:49.680,0:51:56.319
the expanse

0:51:50.640,0:51:56.319
season 5 available now on amazon prime

0:51:57.730,0:52:03.440
[Applause]

0:52:00.160,0:52:06.000

0:52:03.440,0:52:06.480

0:52:06.000,0:52:09.280
