  • ABC taps Once Upon a Time creators to develop ‘Epic’ pilot
  • https://culturess.com/2021/01/30/abc-once-upon-a-time-creators-epic-pilot/
  • http://bit.ly/3qmVNaw 
    • ABC is rounding out its pilot orders with the addition of a new pilot order from longtime ABC collaborators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. Horowitz and Kitsis are responsible for Disney’s hit show Once Upon A Time, and according to The Hollywood Reporter the OUAT creators have been tapped to develop a new fairy tale anthology called Epic.
    • Like OUAT, Epic will follow the same recipe, incorporating other Disney characters to present a reinvented and reimagined world for them to inhabit.
    • Disney’s massive cast of characters from across all of its properties will give Horowitz and Kitsis an endless supply of new stories to explore. (Remember – Leia and Shuri are both Disney princesses!)
    • Kitsis and Horowitz have had an overall deal with ABC that was renewed in 2018. Now that Shonda Rhimes is working with Netflix, they are at the top of ABC’s stable of showrunners. In addition to developing OUAT, they also worked on Lost and were the minds behind Apple’s brilliant Amazing Stories.
    • Once Upon a Time was centered in fairy tale mythology, borrowing heavily from Disney’s stable of fairy tale characters to create a world where Snow White and Prince Charming’s daughter had been sent to the real world so she would be safe.
    • Epic could use the same formula to bridge the gap between fantasy and reality, or it could remain rooted in fantasy to take more of a deep dive into worldbuilding with beloved characters. It’s not often that creators have so much latitude to work with established characters, but as Once Upon a Time fans know, Horowitz and Kitsis know how to manage a sprawling cast and make their stories make sense.
    • As it stands, ABC has ordered four pilots for consideration for the fall television season. Naturally, COVID-19 has continued to play a big role in making decisions about new shows, as safety protocols and the ability to film safely now factor into a new show’s viability.
  • Disney California Adventure Park to bring back 1,000 workers in limited reopening
  • https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/08/business/disney-california-adventure-limited-reopening/index.html?fbclid=IwAR1kPYWg62hpqiOY0bApmA3GQpGerqigfF9ZxY-2qjAvpPxpIUYlDQMSPzE

    • Some Disney fans will finally have the chance to return to the California Adventure Park next month for a limited-time experience, about a year after the entertainment giant’s theme parks closed because of the pandemic.
    • Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock announced the plan Monday in a letter to workers sent in honor of California Adventure’s 20th anniversary.
    • Disney (DIS) is not yet permitted by the state to fully reopen all of the park’s attractions, so the event won’t be like typical visits to a theme park. Instead, the park will offer guests food and beverages, merchandise and “carefully crafted entertainment experiences,” Potrock said in the letter, which was reviewed by CNN Business.
    • With this initiative — as well as the recent restart of outdoor dining in Downtown Disney after California’s stay-at-home order was lifted last month — around 1,000 Disney cast members will be able to return to work. Tens of thousands of the company’s workers have been furloughed or laid off since last year because of the prolonged closure.
    • “With limited capacity and enhanced health and safety measures in place, Guests once again will get to step into a magical Disney environment — an environment that will provide memorable and fun experiences our guests are craving,” Potrock said.
    • The ticketed events are expected to take place multiple days a week beginning in mid-March. The limited reopening points to the potential beginning of a recovery for Disney’s California theme park operations after the pandemic hammered the company’s bottom line.
    • Disney closed all 12 of its theme parks around the world last spring as the Covid-19 pandemic spread. While some of its resorts, such as Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, have reopened, the California parks remain closed because of state health and safety protocols. The Anaheim, California, resort is Disney’s oldest location, with Disneyland opening in 1955 (California Adventure Park opened in 2001).
    • Disneyland’s unions have pushed California Governor Gavin Newsom to reopen the parks, which is set to happen at a limited capacity only when Orange County reaches a lower level of Covid-19 cases. A group of California state assembly members also proposed a bill aimed at speeding the reopening of Disneyland and other large theme parks in the state.
    • Potrock called the California Adventure Park limited reopening a “very special opportunity … that speaks to our top priorities: getting more Cast Members back to work and engaging with our guests in different and relevant ways.”

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi & Darth Vader’s Rematch Will Break A Star Wars Record
  • https://screenrant.com/star-wars-obi-wan-vader-lightsaber-fight-record/?fbclid=IwAR3mBnTRmy7mDP20oObPIowYF2QDmAFd1i5N6Km3j7zQ4qRqzhPeH0V4fvk
  • http://bit.ly/3jKI5Ma 
    • Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi will see its titular hero face off against Darth Vader, and depending how it happens that rematch could break a Star Wars record. The upcoming show will take place 10 years after Star Wars: Episode III – A Revenge of the Sith, where, after defeating Anakin Skywalker on Mustafar, Obi-Wan Kenobi went into exile on Tatooine, committing to watching over Anakin and Padmé Amidala’s son, Luke. As far as viewers know, Obi-Wan spent the entire time on the desert planet, but that may change in the show, not least because of a promised rematch with Darth Vader.
    • As well as Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen is also returning for Obi-Wan Kenobi, where he will don the Vader suit and helmet for the first time since Revenge of the Sith. The specifics of his role are unknown, but the fact he’s been announced so far in advance suggests it’ll be fairly involved. One thing that has been confirmed is that there will be a “rematch” between Obi-Wan and Vader, which was teased by Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy at the Disney Investor Day back in December 2020. Concept art seemingly confirmed it will indeed be a lightsaber battle, showing the pair crossing laser swords once more, and if that is indeed the case, then it will break a Star Wars record.
    • So far, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader have had two duels in Star Wars movies: their fateful fight on Mustafar, and then the rematch in the original Star Wars, which saw Vader strike down his former master. Vader has also battled Luke Skywalker in two different movies – The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi – while, in the sequel trilogy, Rey and Kylo Ren have had three lightsaber duels in total, but only in two separate movies, with their first clash in Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed by a pair of fights in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. With Obi-Wan and Vader’s rematch a lightsaber duel of some sort – even if it’s carried out via the Force, like Rey and Kylo’s second fight – then this would be the first trilogy of lightsaber battles across three different live-action Star Wars properties.
    • Even when factoring animation into the equation, the fact that Obi-Wan and Darth Vader will be making their rivalry into a trilogy remains an impressive feat, although not a wholly unique one, and indeed both characters factor heavily into looking at who has had the most duels on-screen. Following on from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Obi-Wan fights Maul several times in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, before their final encounter in Star Wars Rebels. Likewise, between their clashes in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, Anakin duels Count Dooku a number of times in The Clone Wars.
    • In both cases, though, there are some extra caveats, with most of those duels not being the sort of direct one-on-one battles like the live-action fights seen with Obi-Wan and Vader or Vader and Luke. Obi-Wan is heavily involved in most battles with Dooku, while his fights with Maul tend to be against him and his brother, Savage Opress. He fights the duo with Asajj Ventress (The Clone Wars season 4, episode 22, “Revenge”) and Adi Gallia (season 5, episode 1, “Revival”), and later in the show is lured into a trap by Maul, barely even igniting his lightsaber in season 5, episode 16, “The Lawless” before being captured.
    • The rematch between the duo in Obi-Wan Kenobi, then, can give viewers a “true” Star Wars lightsaber trilogy, akin to fabled real world trilogies such as Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier trio of boxing matches. Adding to its epic feel is that this is one that spans across 19 years and three different movies/shows and features the direct, one-vs-one battles that so often make for the saga’s greatest, most memorable duels. It makes sense that such a record would fall to these two characters: after all, they had the very first lightsaber battle in Star Wars, opening up the original trilogy, and the very last of the prequels. As two characters whose relationship and respective journeys defines so much of Star Wars, then as Disney continues to head into its new era, focused more on Disney+ shows than movies, it’s only right another Obi-Wan/Vader fight would be a part of it.
  • Gina Carano Fired From Star Wars: The Mandalorian
  • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/star-wars-the-mandalorian-gina-carano-exit-lucasfilm-controversy/?fbclid=IwAR2x1zjKcnzF25lATiQS6JUFfWiPfu4IiIIrt8plpoRSXH53ctePQ6iiksg

    • Gina Carano, who is best known for playing Cara Dune on the first two seasons of Disney+’s Star Wars: The Mandalorian, will reportedly no longer be part of the franchise’s future. The news was confirmed on Wednesday night in a statement from a Lucasfilm spokesperson, revealing that Carano is not expected to return to the series’ future seasons, or to any other future projects in the franchise. This comes after Carano shared several controversial and anti-Semitic posts on her social media, the backlash off which led to the hashtag #FireGinaCarano trending on Twitter on Wednesday.
    • “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” the statement from Lucasfilm reads. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
    • While Carano has had a history of making controversial posts on social media — including expressing transphobic views and denying the validity of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — her posts in recent days caught quite a lot of attention. This included an anti-Semitic post comparing the current political climate to Nazi Germany.
    • Carano’s Cara Dune first made her appearance in The Mandalorian Season 1 episode “Sanctuary”, and grew into a fan-favorite across the first season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucasfilm had even had aimed to unveil Carano as the star of her own Star Wars spinoff during last December’s Disney Investor Day presentation, but those plans were done away with following her previous social media behavior. While it was never confirmed, many had speculated that she could be at the center of the Rangers of the New Republic spinoff series, which was announced during Disney Investor Day but did not have confirmation of a cast or roster of characters.
    • “They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” a source says in the report.

  • Tony Bennett reveals battle with Alzheimer’s disease: ‘Life is a gift’
  • https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/celebrities/2021/02/01/tony-bennett-reveals-he-has-alzheimers-disease/4336600001/
  • http://bit.ly/3ae4Ipb 
    • Tony Bennett has revealed he has Alzheimer’s disease.
    • In an interview with AARP, the singer, 94, said he was first diagnosed in 2016. According to the story, he has not yet experienced common symptoms like disorientation or episodes of terror, rage or depression, “but there was little doubt that the disease had progressed.”
    • Gayatri Devi, M.D., a neurologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, who diagnosed Bennett, said the singer has some “cognitive issues, but multiple other areas of his brain are still resilient and functioning well.”
    • Devi continued, “He is doing so many things, at 94, that many people without dementia cannot do. He really is the symbol of hope for someone with a cognitive disorder.”
    • In a tweet sharing the story, Bennett thanked the magazine and his family for their support.
    • “Life is a gift – even with Alzheimer’s,” he wrote. “Thank you to Susan and my family for their support, and @AARP The Magazine for telling my story.”
    • Bennett’s wife Susan Crow and eldest son Danny were also part of the interview.
    • Danny said he checked in with Lady Gaga, one of his father’s collaborators, about breaking the silence around his diagnosis.
    • “I wanted to check with her to make sure she was cool,” Danny said. “because she watches his back all the time. She was like, ‘Absolutely, it’s just another gift that he can give to the world.'”
    • Crow explained that there have been challenges.
    • “I have my moments and it gets very difficult,” she said. “It’s no fun arguing with someone who doesn’t understand you… But I feel badly talking about it because we are so much more fortunate than so many people with this diagnosis. We have such a good team. Danny handles Tony’s business affairs. We have great doctors.”
    • The story also revealed that Bennett and Gaga have a new album coming out, following their 2014 album “Cheek to Cheek.” The album, which the story says was recorded between 2018 and early 2020, is set for a spring release.
    • According to Crow, Bennett was already showing clear signs of the disease throughout the recording process, but spoke to what music means to him.
    • “Singing is everything to him,” Crow said. “Everything. It has saved his life many times. Many times. Through divorces and things. If he ever stops singing, that’s when we’ll know.”
    • Crow added that though Bennett is fortunate, he’s still not the same as before.
    • “There’s a lot about him that I miss,” she said. “Because he’s not the old Tony anymore… But when he sings, he’s the old Tony.”
  • The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan “Counting On” Joining Jensen Ackles in The Boys
  • https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/the-walking-dead-jeffrey-dean-morgan-counting-on-join-jensen-ackles-the-boys-season-3/?fbclid=IwAR1kPYWg62hpqiOY0bApmA3GQpGerqigfF9ZxY-2qjAvpPxpIUYlDQMSPzE
  • http://bit.ly/3jMRlQb 
    • Jeffrey Dean Morgan says he’s “counting on” reuniting with his Supernatural alums Jensen Ackles and Eric Kripke in The Boys, where Ackles joins the upcoming third season as Soldier Boy. Last January, Kripke offered Morgan a Season 3 role over Twitter when Morgan tweeted love for the TV-MA-rated superhero satire and said he’d “go play with that gang anytime.” Morgan added he’d suit up for The Boys “in a heartbeat,” and by July, Kripke revealed ongoing talks with the Walking Dead star for an undisclosed role. Weeks later, Kripke cautioned fans that limited availability and the coronavirus pandemic might make Morgan’s Boys role one of the “many things COVID is screwing up in this world.”
    • Asked on Twitter Saturday if he’s still up for joining The Boys, Morgan tweeted, “Counting on it. @therealKripke ya hear me?” In a subsequent tweet, Morgan wrote he’s “super excited” for his Supernatural son and added Ackles is “gonna kill it” as the original superhero Soldier Boy.
    • “I absolutely have [talked to Morgan]. There’s one role we’re already talking about,” Kripke told Collider over the summer, adding both camps have to “coordinate” because of Morgan’s starring role as Negan on The Walking Dead.
    • “He’s on The Walking Dead, so he has another home. But we already talked about one role, and there might be a potential other that we’re talking about,” Kripke said. “But we are [talking], just this past week we were literally texting back and forth about trying to figure out how to get him on the show. I don’t think it’s a done deal yet, but the will is there, and we’re both talking about it.”
    • Asked about Morgan’s potential role in an August update, Kripke pointed out that COVID-19 “could really screw that up.”
    • “He is on The Walking Dead, so he can only come up for a couple of days. If there’s still a two-week quarantine between Canada and the United States, that renders that impossible,” he told Games Radar. “Of the many things COVID is screwing up in this world, a Jeffrey Dean Morgan cameo or a Jeffrey Dean Morgan role may be one of them. But if the quarantine is removed and a couple of things break our way? Then yeah, we’ll try to figure it out.”
    • Last week, star Karl Urban revealed he was en route to Toronto to begin filming “in a highly tested, PPE, zone controlled, socially distanced way.”
    • “I think, because of COVID and because we’re shooting in the winter which is going to be a little difficult, it limits us to interiors, initially. So it’s a very staggered intake of cast to the shooting schedule this season,” Homelander actor Antony Starr told ComicBook.com in January. “I’ll head up soon. Honestly, I’m chomping at the bit to get back into it, but there’s just a lot of new regulations. It’s a whole new world with COVID that we have to adhere to a bunch of new regulations, so very soon. Can’t be soon enough.”
    • Morgan recently wrapped a six-week shoot on the extended Season 10 of The Walking Dead. The pandemic-proofed Georgia set of the zombie drama resumed production in October after spending most of 2020 shuttered by the virus, and The Walking Dead returns to life with six new episodes on Sunday, February 28, on AMC.

    • WandaVision is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision – two super powered beings living idealized suburban lives – begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
    • I had wanted to feature this a few weeks ago. But to be perfectly honest, it had me scratching my head for the first three episodes deciding if it was worth recommending to our audience.
    • The premise of the show was couched in nostalgic TV sitcoms and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason behind it
    • By episode 4 some clarity starts to creep into the series and it began to emerge as the Marvel Universe we know and love.
    • Each episode is loaded with easter eggs if you are careful enough to notice them. Some related to the Marvel Cinematic universe, some related to the original comics but almost all of them play a significant part in telling the story.
    • The show brings several tertiary characters together from other Marvel projects in kind of a B team style non-super powered avengers mash up
    • We even had a cameo appearance by our in studio model mixer the Rodecaster pro that I had a chance to geek out over

this opening is going to look like

0:02:40.560,0:02:43.760
then in our tales from the edge of the

0:02:42.319,0:02:46.959
galaxy

0:02:43.760,0:02:50.640
we get rumors of an obi-wan kenobi

0:02:46.959,0:02:52.080
and darth vader rematch

0:02:50.640,0:02:53.920
should be interesting coming out of the

0:02:52.080,0:02:58.080
new show

0:02:53.920,0:03:01.519
then uh we talked about gina carano and

0:02:58.080,0:03:05.360
uh some controversial remarks that have

0:03:01.519,0:03:08.400
cost her her role on the mandalorian

0:03:05.360,0:03:09.360
in our entertainment news we talk tony

0:03:08.400,0:03:12.959
bennett’s battle

0:03:09.360,0:03:15.920
with alzheimer’s and some

0:03:12.959,0:03:17.760
information on jeffrey dean morgan from

0:03:15.920,0:03:21.599
walking dead

0:03:17.760,0:03:24.400
joining jansen ackles

0:03:21.599,0:03:27.120
and the boys yeah so that should be very

0:03:24.400,0:03:28.879
cool two shows you both love

0:03:27.120,0:03:30.239
we’ll finish up with our insightful

0:03:28.879,0:03:32.159
picks of the week and we do have an

0:03:30.239,0:03:35.519
afterthought this week to uh

0:03:32.159,0:03:37.840
to go over before we wrap things up

0:03:35.519,0:03:38.720
so anything else before we get started

0:03:37.840,0:03:40.720
nope i

0:03:38.720,0:03:47.840
think that’s everything all right let’s

0:03:40.720,0:03:47.840
get into it okay

0:03:47.920,0:03:57.200
[Music]

0:03:55.599,0:03:58.640
and now i haven’t sped that up yet i

0:03:57.200,0:04:00.159
have to do that

0:03:58.640,0:04:01.760
and you didn’t do any of the show plugs

0:04:00.159,0:04:03.120
beforehand that’s right we’ll do those

0:04:01.760,0:04:06.319
we’ll do those at the end

0:04:03.120,0:04:09.599
um so abc has now tapped

0:04:06.319,0:04:12.720
the once upon a time creators to develop

0:04:09.599,0:04:14.159
epic um so there’s some talk going

0:04:12.720,0:04:17.440
around that abc

0:04:14.159,0:04:20.479
has uh gone to the long time

0:04:17.440,0:04:24.479
collaborators of adam horowitz and

0:04:20.479,0:04:26.720
edward uh kitsis um who are responsible

0:04:24.479,0:04:29.360
for the hit once upon a time

0:04:26.720,0:04:29.759
and according to the hollywood reporter

0:04:29.360,0:04:33.360
they

0:04:29.759,0:04:34.000
are working on a fairy tale anthology

0:04:33.360,0:04:38.080
called

0:04:34.000,0:04:39.520
epic um it you know like once upon a

0:04:38.080,0:04:41.680
time epic will follow

0:04:39.520,0:04:44.240
probably the same kind of recipe

0:04:41.680,0:04:47.600
incorporating other disney characters

0:04:44.240,0:04:50.880
to represent um a reinvented or

0:04:47.600,0:04:53.759
reimagined world for them to inhabit

0:04:50.880,0:04:55.360
um so obviously they have a massive cast

0:04:53.759,0:04:57.440
of characters to

0:04:55.360,0:04:58.400
you know to choose from across the

0:04:57.440,0:05:01.199
properties

0:04:58.400,0:05:01.600
um with endless story ideas you also

0:05:01.199,0:05:04.880
have to

0:05:01.600,0:05:07.919
remember that princess leia and shuri

0:05:04.880,0:05:09.759
are also part of you know the disney

0:05:07.919,0:05:11.680
family too so now you could

0:05:09.759,0:05:13.520
you know there’s so many more characters

0:05:11.680,0:05:17.360
that they could bring into this

0:05:13.520,0:05:21.199
um so they’ve actually been in in a deal

0:05:17.360,0:05:24.400
with disney that was renewed in 2018

0:05:21.199,0:05:26.479
and uh shonda rhimes who

0:05:24.400,0:05:29.280
was working with abc and developing

0:05:26.479,0:05:31.520
she’s actually now working with netflix

0:05:29.280,0:05:32.800
so they’re kind of the top show runners

0:05:31.520,0:05:37.199
that disney is

0:05:32.800,0:05:38.800
an abc is going to um they obviously

0:05:37.199,0:05:40.880
came up with once upon a time which was

0:05:38.800,0:05:41.600
a huge hit they were also the minds

0:05:40.880,0:05:44.720
behind

0:05:41.600,0:05:49.039
lost and they also came up with

0:05:44.720,0:05:52.240
the revamping of apple’s amazing stories

0:05:49.039,0:05:54.960
as well so not much is really

0:05:52.240,0:05:56.639
known what the story is going to be it

0:05:54.960,0:05:58.960
could follow the same

0:05:56.639,0:06:00.000
formula to kind of bridge the gap

0:05:58.960,0:06:03.039
between

0:06:00.000,0:06:04.479
fantasy and reality um you know bringing

0:06:03.039,0:06:07.440
the characters

0:06:04.479,0:06:08.160
you know into more modern story time so

0:06:07.440,0:06:11.199
again

0:06:08.160,0:06:14.160
not much is is really known um so as it

0:06:11.199,0:06:15.680
stands uh abc has ordered four pilots

0:06:14.160,0:06:17.280
for consideration for the fall

0:06:15.680,0:06:19.600
television season

0:06:17.280,0:06:21.600
obviously because of covid that’s been

0:06:19.600,0:06:23.759
playing a big role into

0:06:21.600,0:06:25.280
you know the decision making of what new

0:06:23.759,0:06:26.319
shows they’re going to do and the safety

0:06:25.280,0:06:28.479
protocols

0:06:26.319,0:06:29.919
and you know when they can actually fill

0:06:28.479,0:06:32.240
them so

0:06:29.919,0:06:33.919
should be interesting to uh to see what

0:06:32.240,0:06:36.400
what happens so now is this an

0:06:33.919,0:06:38.240
independent project or is it an offshoot

0:06:36.400,0:06:39.840
of once upon a time it’s a completely

0:06:38.240,0:06:42.479
different

0:06:39.840,0:06:44.720
completely different show interesting

0:06:42.479,0:06:46.720
and who do you think deserves some

0:06:44.720,0:06:48.000
some attention here from a character

0:06:46.720,0:06:49.599
standpoint i don’t know

0:06:48.000,0:06:51.759
it would kind of be interesting to see

0:06:49.599,0:06:55.440
if maybe like

0:06:51.759,0:06:57.280
character lesser known characters maybe

0:06:55.440,0:06:59.120
kind of come to the the forefront

0:06:57.280,0:07:02.720
obviously once upon a time

0:06:59.120,0:07:07.120
you know they did snow white they did

0:07:02.720,0:07:10.560
uh sleeping beauty um they did rapunzel

0:07:07.120,0:07:12.800
tinker bell the seven dwarfs um

0:07:10.560,0:07:14.000
you know interesting take on beauty and

0:07:12.800,0:07:16.080
the beast

0:07:14.000,0:07:17.599
um with different characters so i think

0:07:16.080,0:07:20.240
it would be nice maybe to do

0:07:17.599,0:07:21.039
some of the more modern ones or some of

0:07:20.240,0:07:25.199
the

0:07:21.039,0:07:28.240
lesser-known you know ones out there so

0:07:25.199,0:07:30.160
i don’t know interesting interesting

0:07:28.240,0:07:31.360
tell us about disney’s california

0:07:30.160,0:07:34.160
adventure reopening

0:07:31.360,0:07:36.319
yeah so some disney fans will finally

0:07:34.160,0:07:37.199
have a chance to return to california

0:07:36.319,0:07:40.560
adventure park

0:07:37.199,0:07:42.639
next month for a limited time experience

0:07:40.560,0:07:44.639
about a year after the entertainment

0:07:42.639,0:07:45.919
giants theme park closed because of the

0:07:44.639,0:07:49.199
pandemic

0:07:45.919,0:07:51.280
disneyland resort president ken potrock

0:07:49.199,0:07:54.400
announced uh plans on monday

0:07:51.280,0:07:58.319
in a letter to worker scent in honor of

0:07:54.400,0:08:00.720
california adventure’s 20th anniversary

0:07:58.319,0:08:02.400
obviously disney is not yet permitted by

0:08:00.720,0:08:05.919
the state to open

0:08:02.400,0:08:07.440
um to fully re-open for the park’s

0:08:05.919,0:08:09.280
attraction so the event

0:08:07.440,0:08:11.680
won’t be like a typical visit to the

0:08:09.280,0:08:14.080
theme park instead the park will

0:08:11.680,0:08:16.319
offer guests food and beverages

0:08:14.080,0:08:19.520
merchandise and carefully crafted

0:08:16.319,0:08:22.160
entertainment experiences uh that’s

0:08:19.520,0:08:23.599
what pot rock had uh said in the letter

0:08:22.160,0:08:27.520
which was reviewed by

0:08:23.599,0:08:29.759
um cnn business with this initiative as

0:08:27.520,0:08:31.840
well as the recent restart of outdoor

0:08:29.759,0:08:32.959
dining in downtown disney after

0:08:31.840,0:08:35.680
california’s

0:08:32.959,0:08:37.680
stay-at-home order was lifted last month

0:08:35.680,0:08:39.440
around a thousand cast members will be

0:08:37.680,0:08:41.440
able to return to work

0:08:39.440,0:08:43.519
obviously tens of thousands of the

0:08:41.440,0:08:45.440
company’s workers have been furloughed

0:08:43.519,0:08:48.480
or laid off since last year

0:08:45.440,0:08:50.800
because of the prolonged exposure

0:08:48.480,0:08:53.040
so with limited capacity and enhanced

0:08:50.800,0:08:55.120
health and safety measures in place

0:08:53.040,0:08:57.200
guests once again will get to step into

0:08:55.120,0:08:58.800
a magical disney environment

0:08:57.200,0:09:01.120
an environment that will provide

0:08:58.800,0:09:02.480
memorable and fun experiences for our

0:09:01.120,0:09:05.200
guests

0:09:02.480,0:09:07.440
that our guests are craving he had said

0:09:05.200,0:09:09.920
so they’re going to be a ticketed event

0:09:07.440,0:09:10.880
which will take place multiple days a

0:09:09.920,0:09:13.519
week beginning

0:09:10.880,0:09:15.200
in mid-march the limited reopening

0:09:13.519,0:09:17.440
points to the potential beginning of a

0:09:15.200,0:09:18.800
recovery for disney’s california theme

0:09:17.440,0:09:20.800
park operations

0:09:18.800,0:09:23.200
after the pandemic hammered the

0:09:20.800,0:09:25.120
company’s bottom line

0:09:23.200,0:09:27.200
disney obviously had closed all of its

0:09:25.120,0:09:29.760
theme parks last spring

0:09:27.200,0:09:30.880
with the pandemic and only some of them

0:09:29.760,0:09:34.080
have opened

0:09:30.880,0:09:37.600
um disneyland had opened

0:09:34.080,0:09:39.760
just their shopping area

0:09:37.600,0:09:41.040
and then had started opening some of the

0:09:39.760,0:09:43.600
food areas

0:09:41.040,0:09:45.360
but then some of those had to close when

0:09:43.600,0:09:46.000
california kept going back and forth

0:09:45.360,0:09:48.720
with their

0:09:46.000,0:09:50.399
uh you know the park openings and at one

0:09:48.720,0:09:54.240
point they had

0:09:50.399,0:09:56.720
kind of opened uh california adventure

0:09:54.240,0:09:58.240
for a little bit and then they had to

0:09:56.720,0:10:00.880
close it so now they’re

0:09:58.240,0:10:01.600
you know gonna try and open it up again

0:10:00.880,0:10:04.240
so

0:10:01.600,0:10:05.519
i guess we’ll see you know a little bit

0:10:04.240,0:10:07.120
at a time i guess

0:10:05.519,0:10:09.680
so i assume this has to do with

0:10:07.120,0:10:13.120
california loosening the restrictions

0:10:09.680,0:10:16.640
right right is that a result of

0:10:13.120,0:10:19.839
actual uh infection numbers going down

0:10:16.640,0:10:20.800
is it correlated to the number of

0:10:19.839,0:10:22.800
vaccines out

0:10:20.800,0:10:24.079
have they released any information they

0:10:22.800,0:10:27.519
haven’t really said

0:10:24.079,0:10:30.959
um you know it did say that

0:10:27.519,0:10:33.680
they are reaching lower cases so

0:10:30.959,0:10:34.800
i guess as the numbers drop down things

0:10:33.680,0:10:38.160
are kind of

0:10:34.800,0:10:39.760
slowly opening up to see that the rates

0:10:38.160,0:10:41.360
stay down so they’re probably just being

0:10:39.760,0:10:43.680
very cautious

0:10:41.360,0:10:45.519
at this point so so now this is

0:10:43.680,0:10:47.440
specifically

0:10:45.519,0:10:48.560
just california adventure nothing with

0:10:47.440,0:10:51.760
disneyland

0:10:48.560,0:10:53.600
um you know so i’m guessing again

0:10:51.760,0:10:54.880
they’re probably going to have the same

0:10:53.600,0:10:57.440
type of thing where

0:10:54.880,0:10:58.880
you can walk around certain areas of the

0:10:57.440,0:11:01.920
park you can

0:10:58.880,0:11:02.399
do certain dining experiences and they

0:11:01.920,0:11:04.560
might

0:11:02.399,0:11:05.519
be putting on some sort of entertainment

0:11:04.560,0:11:07.200
show

0:11:05.519,0:11:08.959
for you to watch but obviously you’re

0:11:07.200,0:11:12.720
not able to get on

0:11:08.959,0:11:14.640
any of the rides but we saw images

0:11:12.720,0:11:16.000
you know where they’ve prepared just

0:11:14.640,0:11:19.440
like they have in

0:11:16.000,0:11:20.399
florida with all of the plexiglas and

0:11:19.440,0:11:22.640
all the safety

0:11:20.399,0:11:24.800
so they’re they’re ready for the park to

0:11:22.640,0:11:25.200
be open to to have the safety measures

0:11:24.800,0:11:27.120
and

0:11:25.200,0:11:28.240
to have people spaced out and everything

0:11:27.120,0:11:31.200
they’re just waiting

0:11:28.240,0:11:32.240
for the state to say you know to give

0:11:31.200,0:11:34.000
them the go ahead

0:11:32.240,0:11:35.680
so the article alludes to it being a

0:11:34.000,0:11:39.040
ticketed event right

0:11:35.680,0:11:40.000
does that like we’ve gone to ticketed

0:11:39.040,0:11:42.320
party events

0:11:40.000,0:11:43.200
is it is it that type of yeah there was

0:11:42.320,0:11:47.040
nothing that

0:11:43.200,0:11:50.480
that said how much it was going to cost

0:11:47.040,0:11:53.519
i can’t imagine it you know 10 15

0:11:50.480,0:11:54.000
you know something uh you know pretty

0:11:53.519,0:11:55.920
low

0:11:54.000,0:11:57.200
because i know is this an addition to a

0:11:55.920,0:11:58.880
park ticket

0:11:57.200,0:12:00.800
this would be your park ticket this

0:11:58.880,0:12:03.279
would be your your event

0:12:00.800,0:12:04.880
a special you know this way they know

0:12:03.279,0:12:06.480
how many people are coming in

0:12:04.880,0:12:08.959
it’s probably something where you maybe

0:12:06.480,0:12:12.000
get two or three hours

0:12:08.959,0:12:15.120
uh you know at a time select the

0:12:12.000,0:12:15.760
right limited capacity and it’s buying

0:12:15.120,0:12:18.240
advanced

0:12:15.760,0:12:19.040
with essentially reservations right

0:12:18.240,0:12:20.880
right right

0:12:19.040,0:12:22.480
interesting well i guess you got to

0:12:20.880,0:12:23.920
start somewhere right yeah

0:12:22.480,0:12:25.200
and you know this is a good sign that

0:12:23.920,0:12:26.560
we’re moving in the right direction

0:12:25.200,0:12:28.160
absolutely

0:13:59.519,0:14:05.360
so disney’s obi-wan kenobi will see

0:14:02.720,0:14:06.880
its hero face off against darth vader

0:14:05.360,0:14:10.320
and depending on how it

0:14:06.880,0:14:11.920
happens that rematch rematch could break

0:14:10.320,0:14:14.079
a star wars record

0:14:11.920,0:14:15.600
the upcoming show will take place 10

0:14:14.079,0:14:18.959
years after

0:14:15.600,0:14:21.760
star wars episode 3 revenge of the sith

0:14:18.959,0:14:23.120
where after defeating anakin skywalker

0:14:21.760,0:14:25.760
on mustafar

0:14:23.120,0:14:27.760
obi-wan kenobi went into exile on

0:14:25.760,0:14:30.079
tatooine

0:14:27.760,0:14:31.760
committing to watching over anakin and

0:14:30.079,0:14:34.240
padme’s son luke

0:14:31.760,0:14:36.079
and as far as you know viewers know

0:14:34.240,0:14:39.040
obi-wan spent the entire time

0:14:36.079,0:14:40.800
on the desert planet but that may change

0:14:39.040,0:14:43.360
in the show

0:14:40.800,0:14:44.320
because of a promised rematch with darth

0:14:43.360,0:14:47.440
vader

0:14:44.320,0:14:48.399
so um we obviously know that ian

0:14:47.440,0:14:51.040
mcgregor

0:14:48.399,0:14:52.720
as well as hayden christensen will be

0:14:51.040,0:14:55.120
returning for the show

0:14:52.720,0:14:56.720
um and he’ll be donning the darth vader

0:14:55.120,0:15:01.680
suit and helmet for the first time

0:14:56.720,0:15:01.680
since since revenge of the sith

0:15:02.160,0:15:07.040
the specifics of his role are unknown

0:15:04.560,0:15:08.320
but the fact that he’s been announced so

0:15:07.040,0:15:11.360
far in advance

0:15:08.320,0:15:13.120
suggests it’s fairly involved

0:15:11.360,0:15:15.760
one thing that has been kind of

0:15:13.120,0:15:18.320
confirmed is that there is a rematch

0:15:15.760,0:15:20.800
between obi-wan and vader which was

0:15:18.320,0:15:23.519
teased by lucas films president

0:15:20.800,0:15:27.120
kathleen kennedy at disney investors day

0:15:23.519,0:15:29.759
back in december of 2020. concept art

0:15:27.120,0:15:31.279
um seemingly confirmed it will indeed be

0:15:29.759,0:15:34.320
a lightsaber battle

0:15:31.279,0:15:35.839
showing the pair crossing laser swords

0:15:34.320,0:15:38.000
why would you say laser swords in the

0:15:35.839,0:15:38.839
article it’s lightsabers everybody knows

0:15:38.000,0:15:42.399
that

0:15:38.839,0:15:45.040
duh exactly uh once more

0:15:42.399,0:15:47.199
and that if this in is the case then

0:15:45.040,0:15:49.279
it’ll break a star wars record

0:15:47.199,0:15:51.680
so so far obi-wan and darth vader have

0:15:49.279,0:15:54.000
had two duels in star wars movies

0:15:51.680,0:15:56.160
their fate fight their fateful fight on

0:15:54.000,0:15:58.160
mustafar say that five times fast

0:15:56.160,0:15:59.279
and then their rematch in the original

0:15:58.160,0:16:02.880
star wars which was

0:15:59.279,0:16:04.240
technically the first um which saw vader

0:16:02.880,0:16:07.120
strike down

0:16:04.240,0:16:09.440
his former master uh vader has also

0:16:07.120,0:16:12.320
battled luke in two different movies

0:16:09.440,0:16:13.519
um and then obviously you have kylo ren

0:16:12.320,0:16:16.079
and rey who

0:16:13.519,0:16:16.560
had three lightsaber duels as well but

0:16:16.079,0:16:19.199
only in

0:16:16.560,0:16:19.680
two separate movies so the idea is that

0:16:19.199,0:16:22.480
if

0:16:19.680,0:16:24.959
this happens it’s in three separate

0:16:22.480,0:16:27.519
events so that’s why it’s kind of like a

0:16:24.959,0:16:29.759
a big deal it’s like a hat trick of

0:16:27.519,0:16:32.000
lightsaber tools

0:16:29.759,0:16:32.800
okay hey you know what we’ll take what

0:16:32.000,0:16:36.079
we can get

0:16:32.800,0:16:38.720
um so you know so

0:16:36.079,0:16:40.720
it’ll be kind of cool to see you know

0:16:38.720,0:16:44.320
where it takes this so you know

0:16:40.720,0:16:47.519
if you know so the rematch between ob1

0:16:44.320,0:16:50.480
you know it can be this true lightsaber

0:16:47.519,0:16:51.920
trilogy um which i guess was kind of you

0:16:50.480,0:16:55.120
know

0:16:51.920,0:16:56.800
only you know like a fabled thing in in

0:16:55.120,0:16:57.920
star wars i guess is what the the

0:16:56.800,0:17:00.079
article

0:16:57.920,0:17:01.360
um you know talked about i don’t know i

0:17:00.079,0:17:04.559
think it’s kind of

0:17:01.360,0:17:05.199
cool to to see you know what really

0:17:04.559,0:17:07.280
happened

0:17:05.199,0:17:09.039
during this you know time away because i

0:17:07.280,0:17:11.360
know i don’t know

0:17:09.039,0:17:12.240
you probably know a little bit more from

0:17:11.360,0:17:13.839
books and

0:17:12.240,0:17:16.000
comics and things like that so it’ll be

0:17:13.839,0:17:18.880
kind of cool to see if there is

0:17:16.000,0:17:19.839
you know how epic this match really is

0:17:18.880,0:17:21.760
is it you know

0:17:19.839,0:17:25.439
going to be like the kick-ass darth

0:17:21.760,0:17:28.400
vader that we got to see in rogue one

0:17:25.439,0:17:29.919
or you know is he like kind of lame

0:17:28.400,0:17:31.679
because it’s been 10 years i don’t know

0:17:29.919,0:17:34.160
it’ll it’ll be interesting to say

0:17:31.679,0:17:35.600
well there’s a video on youtube that is

0:17:34.160,0:17:38.640
a fan made video

0:17:35.600,0:17:41.039
where they take a mashup of the

0:17:38.640,0:17:42.080
original lightsaber battle from a new

0:17:41.039,0:17:45.440
hope okay

0:17:42.080,0:17:50.080
obi-wan and darth vader and they add

0:17:45.440,0:17:54.080
enhanced cgi and enhanced stunt double

0:17:50.080,0:17:57.600
um video to it with a concert and

0:17:54.080,0:18:00.240
in uh costume and everything

0:17:57.600,0:18:02.400
and it that becomes that has become like

0:18:00.240,0:18:03.600
the quintessential lightsaber battle

0:18:02.400,0:18:06.640
between the two of them

0:18:03.600,0:18:08.640
okay everyone looks at now because

0:18:06.640,0:18:10.400
let’s face it the the lightsaber battle

0:18:08.640,0:18:13.360
from a new hope really was just so

0:18:10.400,0:18:15.200
lame it was it was like two old man with

0:18:13.360,0:18:16.400
walking sticks hitting each other well

0:18:15.200,0:18:19.120
cause they were two

0:18:16.400,0:18:21.120
old men with walking sticks but like you

0:18:19.120,0:18:23.120
never got to see even even

0:18:21.120,0:18:25.440
luke’s lightsaber battle with darth

0:18:23.120,0:18:27.039
vader in return of the jedi

0:18:25.440,0:18:28.799
which was certainly more enhanced

0:18:27.039,0:18:31.520
because he’s flipping and doing

0:18:28.799,0:18:32.720
right different things you never really

0:18:31.520,0:18:35.120
got to see

0:18:32.720,0:18:36.799
what a jedi could really do in the

0:18:35.120,0:18:37.360
lightsaber battle until the prequels

0:18:36.799,0:18:39.200
came around

0:18:37.360,0:18:41.280
right right which was really one of the

0:18:39.200,0:18:43.520
saving graces of the prequels was the

0:18:41.280,0:18:44.880
the realism of some of the lightsaber

0:18:43.520,0:18:48.559
battles

0:18:44.880,0:18:50.080
um but this one that the

0:18:48.559,0:18:52.720
you know this fan fiction that they put

0:18:50.080,0:18:55.520
out was really what everyone hoped

0:18:52.720,0:18:57.520
it would look like when everyone finally

0:18:55.520,0:18:59.520
fought darth vader again

0:18:57.520,0:19:01.120
so i’m interested to see the battle

0:18:59.520,0:19:03.360
itself right

0:19:01.120,0:19:05.520
that’s less interesting to me than the

0:19:03.360,0:19:08.640
circumstances under which

0:19:05.520,0:19:10.640
they meet each other 10 years later

0:19:08.640,0:19:12.640
because the problem you run into is

0:19:10.640,0:19:14.720
they’ve kind of painted themselves into

0:19:12.640,0:19:15.520
a corner with the dialogue from a new

0:19:14.720,0:19:17.919
hope

0:19:15.520,0:19:19.039
right where the last time they stay the

0:19:17.919,0:19:20.640
last time that we saw

0:19:19.039,0:19:22.559
each other you were the master i was the

0:19:20.640,0:19:24.960
apprentice well clearly

0:19:22.559,0:19:26.880
10 years after revenge of the sith

0:19:24.960,0:19:29.280
that’s not the case

0:19:26.880,0:19:30.320
so if they’re seeing each other again 10

0:19:29.280,0:19:32.640
years later

0:19:30.320,0:19:34.400
right how do you how do you justify that

0:19:32.640,0:19:37.840
line in a new hope

0:19:34.400,0:19:39.919
so that’s kind of difficult yeah is it

0:19:37.840,0:19:41.600
something where they

0:19:39.919,0:19:43.760
yeah because he’s gonna know it’s darth

0:19:41.600,0:19:44.720
vader because we know he has to be in

0:19:43.760,0:19:46.960
the suit by that

0:19:44.720,0:19:48.320
right yeah right he’s in the suit at the

0:19:46.960,0:19:51.679
end of revenge of the sith

0:19:48.320,0:19:53.760
right so yeah

0:19:51.679,0:19:55.200
i don’t know so that’s kind of that’s

0:19:53.760,0:19:56.080
that’s one of the issues the other one

0:19:55.200,0:19:59.039
is that all those

0:19:56.080,0:20:00.240
all the post uh revenge of the sith

0:19:59.039,0:20:03.679
storylines that came out

0:20:00.240,0:20:05.360
between comics and novels with obi-wan

0:20:03.679,0:20:08.720
he was on the planet he never left the

0:20:05.360,0:20:11.039
planet so it’ll be interesting to see

0:20:08.720,0:20:12.400
under what circumstances he leaves the

0:20:11.039,0:20:14.240
planet at this point in time because

0:20:12.400,0:20:15.039
he’s there on assignment to watch over

0:20:14.240,0:20:17.440
luke right

0:20:15.039,0:20:18.720
did he take a vacation and they ran into

0:20:17.440,0:20:21.840
each other at a resort

0:20:18.720,0:20:22.799
well and it also it also brings up the

0:20:21.840,0:20:25.360
possibility of

0:20:22.799,0:20:27.360
what kind of misadventures could luke be

0:20:25.360,0:20:28.799
getting into here that they could go off

0:20:27.360,0:20:31.360
in the novel or something like that

0:20:28.799,0:20:33.200
about where he kind of goes to watch to

0:20:31.360,0:20:35.440
make sure he doesn’t

0:20:33.200,0:20:37.360
get into trouble as a 10 year old kid

0:20:35.440,0:20:41.120
because he luke’s going to be 10

0:20:37.360,0:20:42.960
during this exactly exactly so

0:20:41.120,0:20:44.559
it’s it’s interesting it’s i’m glad to

0:20:42.960,0:20:45.200
see that there’s more news coming out

0:20:44.559,0:20:47.520
about this

0:20:45.200,0:20:49.280
because you know the press kind of went

0:20:47.520,0:20:51.280
dead on this project for a little while

0:20:49.280,0:20:53.520
right right uh so it’s nice that they’re

0:20:51.280,0:20:55.200
breathing some life back into it

0:20:53.520,0:20:56.480
and we knew that hayden christensen was

0:20:55.200,0:20:58.240
going to be making an appearance as

0:20:56.480,0:20:59.520
vader but everyone assumed it was going

0:20:58.240,0:20:59.919
to be some kind of flashback or

0:20:59.520,0:21:03.520
something

0:20:59.919,0:21:07.200
right right so it would be cool to see

0:21:03.520,0:21:10.159
vader in that rogue one role right

0:21:07.200,0:21:11.760
or he doesn’t know that it’s obi-wan

0:21:10.159,0:21:14.720
like obi-wan

0:21:11.760,0:21:16.159
is in a disguise of some sort or

0:21:14.720,0:21:19.360
something like i could see

0:21:16.159,0:21:22.960
that being well it’s possible

0:21:19.360,0:21:26.000
that obi-wan doesn’t know that vader

0:21:22.960,0:21:29.120
is vader that’s true

0:21:26.000,0:21:32.240
right that’s true because he never

0:21:29.120,0:21:33.840
saw him in the fall

0:21:32.240,0:21:35.360
but in order to make the line from a new

0:21:33.840,0:21:36.559
hope plausible it has to be the other

0:21:35.360,0:21:39.120
way around like you mentioned

0:21:36.559,0:21:40.080
right vader has to not know it’s obi-wan

0:21:39.120,0:21:41.840
right

0:21:40.080,0:21:44.400
and that could be because he could be

0:21:41.840,0:21:45.919
dressed as a storm trooper or

0:21:44.400,0:21:47.919
it could be like a take on a roll of a

0:21:45.919,0:21:49.120
bounty hunter or something right right

0:21:47.919,0:21:50.720
although you don’t see too many bounty

0:21:49.120,0:21:51.679
hunters running around with lightsabers

0:21:50.720,0:21:54.720
yeah well

0:21:51.679,0:21:56.880
so that should be interesting so on the

0:21:54.720,0:21:58.159
heels of that good news tell us some bad

0:21:56.880,0:22:01.840
star wars news

0:21:58.159,0:22:06.159
yeah so this is actually a story that

0:22:01.840,0:22:08.880
has been kind of you know in the news

0:22:06.159,0:22:09.919
are they gonna fire her what’s gonna

0:22:08.880,0:22:12.559
happen

0:22:09.919,0:22:13.520
you know it was back and forth and

0:22:12.559,0:22:16.480
finally

0:22:13.520,0:22:17.919
you know disney and and lucasfilms

0:22:16.480,0:22:21.120
finally

0:22:17.919,0:22:23.679
took the axe and and chopped it uh

0:22:21.120,0:22:24.400
so news came out obviously this week

0:22:23.679,0:22:27.120
that

0:22:24.400,0:22:27.520
gina carano has been fired from star

0:22:27.120,0:22:29.840
wars

0:22:27.520,0:22:30.559
mandalorian she’s obviously the

0:22:29.840,0:22:32.640
character

0:22:30.559,0:22:34.799
uh the actress best known for playing

0:22:32.640,0:22:36.880
cara dune in the first two seasons

0:22:34.799,0:22:38.880
of the mandalorian and she will

0:22:36.880,0:22:40.559
reportedly no longer be part of the

0:22:38.880,0:22:42.400
franchise’s future

0:22:40.559,0:22:44.320
the news was confirmed on wednesday

0:22:42.400,0:22:46.080
night in a statement from lucasfilm

0:22:44.320,0:22:48.640
spokesperson revealing

0:22:46.080,0:22:49.520
that carano is not expected to return to

0:22:48.640,0:22:52.799
the series

0:22:49.520,0:22:55.360
future seasons or to any future

0:22:52.799,0:22:56.720
projects in the franchise this comes

0:22:55.360,0:22:59.120
after carano

0:22:56.720,0:23:02.000
shared several controversial and

0:22:59.120,0:23:05.360
anti-semitic posts on her social media

0:23:02.000,0:23:07.520
with the backlash off which led to the

0:23:05.360,0:23:10.480
hashtag fire gina carano

0:23:07.520,0:23:12.320
trending on twitter so in the statement

0:23:10.480,0:23:14.880
they said gina carano is no

0:23:12.320,0:23:16.799
longer currently employed by lucasfilms

0:23:14.880,0:23:18.080
and there is no plans for her to return

0:23:16.799,0:23:21.039
in the future

0:23:18.080,0:23:22.000
nevertheless her social media post uh

0:23:21.039,0:23:24.240
derogated

0:23:22.000,0:23:25.919
peoples based on their cultural and

0:23:24.240,0:23:29.520
religious identities

0:23:25.919,0:23:32.640
and are um

0:23:29.520,0:23:35.280
sorry um identities are

0:23:32.640,0:23:37.919
unacceptable um she obviously had a

0:23:35.280,0:23:39.120
history of making controversial posts on

0:23:37.919,0:23:42.400
social media

0:23:39.120,0:23:45.600
including expressing transphobic views

0:23:42.400,0:23:48.240
and ident um identifying

0:23:45.600,0:23:51.840
the the and did not i’m sorry and

0:23:48.240,0:23:51.840
denying the the

0:23:52.320,0:23:59.360
i can’t talk um uh denying the

0:23:56.320,0:24:02.720
um the pandemic that was going on and

0:23:59.360,0:24:04.960
her recent post caught quite a um

0:24:02.720,0:24:07.279
a lot of attention because they included

0:24:04.960,0:24:09.360
anti-semitic posts comparing

0:24:07.279,0:24:10.320
current political climate to nazi

0:24:09.360,0:24:12.559
germany

0:24:10.320,0:24:13.919
um she made her first appearance in the

0:24:12.559,0:24:17.520
mandalorian

0:24:13.919,0:24:19.360
season one uh episode sanctuary and she

0:24:17.520,0:24:21.840
grew to be a fan favorite in the first

0:24:19.360,0:24:22.480
season so according to the hollywood

0:24:21.840,0:24:26.080
reporter

0:24:22.480,0:24:29.039
lucasfilms had you know

0:24:26.080,0:24:30.400
wanted her to be part of the spin-off of

0:24:29.039,0:24:33.760
um

0:24:30.400,0:24:36.240
one of the star wars uh the star wars uh

0:24:33.760,0:24:37.360
rangers of the new republic obviously

0:24:36.240,0:24:39.840
now

0:24:37.360,0:24:41.760
they’re gonna have to look to either

0:24:39.840,0:24:44.960
recast it or

0:24:41.760,0:24:47.600
you know redo uh her

0:24:44.960,0:24:49.120
her part in it yeah this is this is

0:24:47.600,0:24:50.480
unfortunate like

0:24:49.120,0:24:52.320
you know my take on this is you’re

0:24:50.480,0:24:54.000
entitled to your opinion

0:24:52.320,0:24:55.520
you can think whatever you want the

0:24:54.000,0:24:56.880
thought police aren’t really out there

0:24:55.520,0:25:00.240
to stop you from thinking

0:24:56.880,0:25:01.760
right my issue with this

0:25:00.240,0:25:03.360
and you’re you’re welcome to express

0:25:01.760,0:25:04.960
those opinions

0:25:03.360,0:25:07.679
the problem is that when you express

0:25:04.960,0:25:12.080
those opinions from the platform

0:25:07.679,0:25:14.720
that your employer provides for you

0:25:12.080,0:25:16.640
you’re now exploiting that platform some

0:25:14.720,0:25:17.760
people exploit it for good some people

0:25:16.640,0:25:20.640
exploit it for bad

0:25:17.760,0:25:22.159
right the issue you have is at that

0:25:20.640,0:25:25.120
point in time you’re representing

0:25:22.159,0:25:27.200
that employer right so if you’re going

0:25:25.120,0:25:28.799
to do something like that

0:25:27.200,0:25:30.640
you kind of have to be careful how

0:25:28.799,0:25:33.440
you’re going to express yourself right

0:25:30.640,0:25:34.640
right um and you know i’m not debating

0:25:33.440,0:25:36.720
whether what she

0:25:34.640,0:25:38.000
thought or said was right or wrong i i

0:25:36.720,0:25:42.080
firmly believe that

0:25:38.000,0:25:43.520
her position is amazingly ignorant and

0:25:42.080,0:25:46.240
obtuse

0:25:43.520,0:25:48.320
but she has a right to express it right

0:25:46.240,0:25:49.279
in a way that does not reflect poorly on

0:25:48.320,0:25:51.200
your employer

0:25:49.279,0:25:52.960
right disney was well within their

0:25:51.200,0:25:56.000
rights i’m sure there was probably

0:25:52.960,0:25:57.760
some level of uh

0:25:56.000,0:25:59.279
publicity clause or something like that

0:25:57.760,0:26:01.279
that disney has with their talent that

0:25:59.279,0:26:02.480
allows them to terminate contracts based

0:26:01.279,0:26:05.360
on stuff like this

0:26:02.480,0:26:06.960
right it’s unfortunate that this is what

0:26:05.360,0:26:09.600
her thoughts are

0:26:06.960,0:26:10.080
and that was the thing because it it

0:26:09.600,0:26:12.960
again

0:26:10.080,0:26:14.400
like i said this had been coming up you

0:26:12.960,0:26:17.679
know i had been seeing

0:26:14.400,0:26:18.720
stories on her for for months really and

0:26:17.679,0:26:22.080
it was just kind of like

0:26:18.720,0:26:22.480
i don’t you know and people were you

0:26:22.080,0:26:24.799
know

0:26:22.480,0:26:26.159
disney was standing by her saying yeah

0:26:24.799,0:26:27.840
you know okay

0:26:26.159,0:26:29.919
that’s her and and that’s what they were

0:26:27.840,0:26:33.039
basically saying they were saying

0:26:29.919,0:26:36.080
she has the right to to her opinion

0:26:33.039,0:26:38.720
we stand by her you know and i think

0:26:36.080,0:26:40.320
it was this was kind of the final straw

0:26:38.720,0:26:41.039
it’s like you started out here and it

0:26:40.320,0:26:43.039
was okay

0:26:41.039,0:26:44.080
you started out here it was okay then

0:26:43.039,0:26:47.600
you went here

0:26:44.080,0:26:50.880
and that was where they they had to

0:26:47.600,0:26:53.200
really back away that she does have

0:26:50.880,0:26:56.159
quite a track record for making comments

0:26:53.200,0:26:58.960
like this and there being a backlash

0:26:56.159,0:26:59.679
and the fact that you continue down that

0:26:58.960,0:27:03.039
path

0:26:59.679,0:27:03.919
without i wouldn’t even say censoring

0:27:03.039,0:27:07.200
but at least

0:27:03.919,0:27:09.600
moderating your your your

0:27:07.200,0:27:10.559
messaging or she posts it and then

0:27:09.600,0:27:13.760
deletes it

0:27:10.559,0:27:14.320
right then why even post it in the first

0:27:13.760,0:27:16.240
place

0:27:14.320,0:27:18.799
you know if it’s to the point where you

0:27:16.240,0:27:20.559
have to post it and then take it down

0:27:18.799,0:27:22.080
then you probably shouldn’t have posted

0:27:20.559,0:27:24.000
it you know

0:27:22.080,0:27:25.840
to to begin with and really the real

0:27:24.000,0:27:27.840
shame here is for the fans because the

0:27:25.840,0:27:30.960
character that she portrayed

0:27:27.840,0:27:32.480
was a great character she was a strong

0:27:30.960,0:27:35.840
female lead

0:27:32.480,0:27:37.440
she was had the potential for being a

0:27:35.840,0:27:39.600
role model for

0:27:37.440,0:27:40.480
for young women all over the place right

0:27:39.600,0:27:43.120
and

0:27:40.480,0:27:44.240
honestly they could recast it there’s

0:27:43.120,0:27:47.760
probably

0:27:44.240,0:27:50.480
a number of actresses

0:27:47.760,0:27:51.279
that could fill that role it doesn’t

0:27:50.480,0:27:54.399
necessarily

0:27:51.279,0:27:56.480
need to be you know you need to be heard

0:27:54.399,0:27:59.200
the problem that you have is because of

0:27:56.480,0:28:01.120
what she did what she said

0:27:59.200,0:28:02.640
it’s associated with disney it’s

0:28:01.120,0:28:04.640
associated with star wars and it’s

0:28:02.640,0:28:06.480
associated with that character

0:28:04.640,0:28:08.080
so i think at this point in time you’ve

0:28:06.480,0:28:09.600
polluted that character the point that

0:28:08.080,0:28:11.760
you need to burn the character

0:28:09.600,0:28:13.760
i don’t know because you know there was

0:28:11.760,0:28:14.640
something that a friend of mine had had

0:28:13.760,0:28:18.240
kind of

0:28:14.640,0:28:19.600
posted and it it came from from somebody

0:28:18.240,0:28:21.919
else he had shared it

0:28:19.600,0:28:22.720
and it talked about how you know like jk

0:28:21.919,0:28:24.880
rowling

0:28:22.720,0:28:26.720
she’s obviously under fire for a lot of

0:28:24.880,0:28:27.840
things and you know so many people are

0:28:26.720,0:28:29.440
like oh i’m never

0:28:27.840,0:28:31.919
you know dealing with harry potter again

0:28:29.440,0:28:34.799
because of her and it was like well no

0:28:31.919,0:28:35.600
you can still enjoy harry potter for for

0:28:34.799,0:28:37.919
what

0:28:35.600,0:28:40.159
it was and all the lessons you know that

0:28:37.919,0:28:42.320
it taught you don’t have to look at

0:28:40.159,0:28:43.279
who the person was and they kind of said

0:28:42.320,0:28:46.559
you can look at

0:28:43.279,0:28:48.799
her character cara dune and what she

0:28:46.559,0:28:50.000
stood for not the actress that played

0:28:48.799,0:28:53.440
her so

0:28:50.000,0:28:54.640
i i can see that but maybe they can do

0:28:53.440,0:28:59.520
something to bring it

0:28:54.640,0:29:01.600
so that it’s not necessarily

0:28:59.520,0:29:02.960
all about the actress that played her

0:29:01.600,0:29:04.880
but more about

0:29:02.960,0:29:06.320
the character obviously i don’t think

0:29:04.880,0:29:09.919
star wars has ever

0:29:06.320,0:29:11.120
recast anybody you know leia was over

0:29:09.919,0:29:13.200
solo and that was a film

0:29:11.120,0:29:14.720
well that that was okay so that’s like

0:29:13.200,0:29:17.039
the one but like

0:29:14.720,0:29:18.960
you know princess leia was always carrie

0:29:17.039,0:29:21.760
fisher they’ve never

0:29:18.960,0:29:24.640
you know obviously they had the cgi you

0:29:21.760,0:29:27.120
know and luke has always been

0:29:24.640,0:29:28.240
luke and you know they recast yoda and

0:29:27.120,0:29:31.679
that was a failure

0:29:28.240,0:29:33.120
yeah true they did kind of okay so

0:29:31.679,0:29:35.679
they don’t have a good track record

0:29:33.120,0:29:38.480
right and the problem that you have is

0:29:35.679,0:29:42.000
she embodied the character because the

0:29:38.480,0:29:44.000
character required a certain type of

0:29:42.000,0:29:45.440
look right certain type of demeanor and

0:29:44.000,0:29:47.600
a certain type of character

0:29:45.440,0:29:49.440
yeah you could definitely just kind of

0:29:47.600,0:29:51.360
kill her off or just never

0:29:49.440,0:29:53.520
talk about her again that’s why i think

0:29:51.360,0:29:55.679
you gotta burn the character

0:29:53.520,0:29:57.360
ironically had she played the lead role

0:29:55.679,0:29:58.640
in the mandalorian you would have easily

0:29:57.360,0:29:59.120
gotten away from because you never saw

0:29:58.640,0:30:03.279
her face

0:29:59.120,0:30:05.279
right true true but the role she played

0:30:03.279,0:30:08.720
she was that character yeah you can’t

0:30:05.279,0:30:11.200
continue on with that character

0:30:08.720,0:30:12.080
anyway sad news but we move on

i will i just have to now go for

0:31:48.159,0:31:52.080
entertainment news

0:31:49.279,0:31:54.159
uh so this was some you know sad news

0:31:52.080,0:31:54.799
that had had come out actually the week

0:31:54.159,0:31:57.279
before

0:31:54.799,0:31:58.799
um so tony bennett has revealed that he

0:31:57.279,0:32:01.840
has alzheimer’s

0:31:58.799,0:32:03.600
uh in an interview with aarp the singer

0:32:01.840,0:32:05.960
who was 94

0:32:03.600,0:32:07.360
said that he was first diagnosed in

0:32:05.960,0:32:09.360
2016.

0:32:07.360,0:32:11.559
according to the story he has not yet

0:32:09.360,0:32:13.760
experienced common symptoms like

0:32:11.559,0:32:16.640
disorientation

0:32:13.760,0:32:18.159
or episodes of terror rage or depression

0:32:16.640,0:32:20.000
but there is little doubt that the

0:32:18.159,0:32:24.480
disease has progressed

0:32:20.000,0:32:26.880
um a neurologist who had diagnosed him

0:32:24.480,0:32:27.600
said that the singer has some cognitive

0:32:26.880,0:32:30.000
issues

0:32:27.600,0:32:32.799
but multiple other areas of his brain

0:32:30.000,0:32:34.880
are still resilient and functioning well

0:32:32.799,0:32:36.480
the doctor had said he is doing so many

0:32:34.880,0:32:39.120
things at 94

0:32:36.480,0:32:39.679
that many people without dementia cannot

0:32:39.120,0:32:41.360
do

0:32:39.679,0:32:42.880
he really is a symbol of hope for

0:32:41.360,0:32:46.000
someone with cognitive

0:32:42.880,0:32:48.480
with a cognitive disorder in a tweet

0:32:46.000,0:32:49.279
sharing the story bennett had thanked

0:32:48.480,0:32:51.840
the magazine

0:32:49.279,0:32:54.399
and his family for their support he said

0:32:51.840,0:32:56.480
life is a gift even with alzheimer’s

0:32:54.399,0:32:59.279
thank you to susan and my family for

0:32:56.480,0:33:00.880
their support and aarp the magazine for

0:32:59.279,0:33:04.080
telling my story

0:33:00.880,0:33:04.559
uh his wife susan crowe and their eldest

0:33:04.080,0:33:08.000
son

0:33:04.559,0:33:09.679
danny were also part of the interview

0:33:08.000,0:33:11.039
danny said he had actually checked in

0:33:09.679,0:33:12.880
with lady gaga

0:33:11.039,0:33:15.360
who is one of uh his father’s

0:33:12.880,0:33:17.360
collaborator collaborators

0:33:15.360,0:33:18.559
about breaking the silence about his

0:33:17.360,0:33:20.159
diagnosis

0:33:18.559,0:33:22.080
he said i wanted to check with her to

0:33:20.159,0:33:24.159
make sure that she was cool with it

0:33:22.080,0:33:26.240
because she watches his back all the

0:33:24.159,0:33:27.600
time and she was like absolutely it’s

0:33:26.240,0:33:30.480
just another gift

0:33:27.600,0:33:31.519
that he can give the world um crowe had

0:33:30.480,0:33:32.640
explained that there have been

0:33:31.519,0:33:35.519
challenges

0:33:32.640,0:33:37.039
uh she said i have my moments and it

0:33:35.519,0:33:39.120
gets very difficult

0:33:37.039,0:33:40.559
it’s no fun arguing with someone who

0:33:39.120,0:33:42.720
doesn’t understand you

0:33:40.559,0:33:45.200
but i feel badly talking about it

0:33:42.720,0:33:47.440
because there are so much more fortunes

0:33:45.200,0:33:50.159
because we are so much more fortunate

0:33:47.440,0:33:52.720
than so many people with his diagnosis

0:33:50.159,0:33:54.960
we have such a good team uh danny

0:33:52.720,0:33:56.320
handles his business affairs and we have

0:33:54.960,0:33:58.640
great doctors

0:33:56.320,0:33:59.919
uh the story actually also revealed that

0:33:58.640,0:34:02.159
bennett and gaga

0:33:59.919,0:34:04.320
have a new album which is coming out

0:34:02.159,0:34:08.000
following their 2014

0:34:04.320,0:34:10.240
album cheek to cheek the album

0:34:08.000,0:34:12.320
which uh the story states was recorded

0:34:10.240,0:34:15.040
between 2018

0:34:12.320,0:34:16.000
and early 2020 is set for a spring

0:34:15.040,0:34:18.399
release

0:34:16.000,0:34:20.079
according to his wife bennett uh was

0:34:18.399,0:34:22.480
already showing clear signs of the

0:34:20.079,0:34:25.359
disease throughout the recording process

0:34:22.480,0:34:26.399
but spoke that you know what the music

0:34:25.359,0:34:29.280
means to him

0:34:26.399,0:34:31.440
uh she said singing is everything to him

0:34:29.280,0:34:32.639
everything it has saved his life many

0:34:31.440,0:34:35.040
many times

0:34:32.639,0:34:36.079
through divorces and things if he ever

0:34:35.040,0:34:38.879
stops singing

0:34:36.079,0:34:40.000
that’s when we’ll know um she also had

0:34:38.879,0:34:42.879
said that

0:34:40.000,0:34:44.000
um you know there’s a lot that i miss

0:34:42.879,0:34:45.919
about him

0:34:44.000,0:34:48.240
but because he’s not the old tony

0:34:45.919,0:34:52.000
anymore but when he sings

0:34:48.240,0:34:55.839
it’s he becomes himself again so

0:34:52.000,0:34:58.079
very sad um you know to hear that but

0:34:55.839,0:34:59.040
it sounds like he you know he’s doing

0:34:58.079,0:35:02.240
well right

0:34:59.040,0:35:05.359
you know with it it hasn’t gotten

0:35:02.240,0:35:08.320
you know worse to the point that

0:35:05.359,0:35:10.880
you know he doesn’t know who he is or he

0:35:08.320,0:35:13.280
can’t still perform and stuff so

0:35:10.880,0:35:15.599
you know yeah what surprised me about

0:35:13.280,0:35:16.079
the article was i wasn’t aware of the

0:35:15.599,0:35:18.640
level

0:35:16.079,0:35:19.520
of relationship that he had with lady

0:35:18.640,0:35:22.079
gaga oh

0:35:19.520,0:35:22.720
yeah and that was something that you

0:35:22.079,0:35:25.839
know

0:35:22.720,0:35:29.280
when they kind of got together in

0:35:25.839,0:35:32.320
in 2014 it was like

0:35:29.280,0:35:35.440
after that they were always together

0:35:32.320,0:35:36.079
you know and and she was always there

0:35:35.440,0:35:38.560
for him and

0:35:36.079,0:35:39.200
and performing whenever she could with

0:35:38.560,0:35:41.599
him and

0:35:39.200,0:35:42.880
they and i think that’s when a lot of

0:35:41.599,0:35:46.240
people kind of

0:35:42.880,0:35:50.320
started to realize that she was

0:35:46.240,0:35:53.200
as talented of a singer as she as she is

0:35:50.320,0:35:53.839
you know she wasn’t just this pop icon

0:35:53.200,0:35:55.520
she

0:35:53.839,0:35:56.960
she was a talented singer she was a

0:35:55.520,0:35:59.680
classically trained

0:35:56.960,0:36:00.880
singer because of the two of them you

0:35:59.680,0:36:02.480
know getting together

0:36:00.880,0:36:03.920
so yeah that’s nice it’s good to have

0:36:02.480,0:36:06.720
someone like that you know

0:36:03.920,0:36:08.640
who has your back absolutely well we

0:36:06.720,0:36:11.200
wish him the best

0:36:08.640,0:36:13.040
tell us about uh one of our favorite

0:36:11.200,0:36:15.520
actors jeffrey dean morgan

0:36:13.040,0:36:17.440
yeah so jeffrey dean morgan says he’s

0:36:15.520,0:36:21.280
counting on returning

0:36:17.440,0:36:24.560
uh reuniting with his supernatural uh

0:36:21.280,0:36:27.599
alum uh jensen ackles and

0:36:24.560,0:36:30.560
eric uh crimple in the boys where

0:36:27.599,0:36:31.920
ackles is going to be joining uh the

0:36:30.560,0:36:35.520
upcoming third season

0:36:31.920,0:36:38.960
as soldier boy so last january

0:36:35.520,0:36:42.079
uh [ __ ] had offered morgan a season

0:36:38.960,0:36:44.720
three spot over twitter you know

0:36:42.079,0:36:46.079
when he had tweeted love for the the

0:36:44.720,0:36:48.240
television show

0:36:46.079,0:36:50.640
uh he said you know that he would go and

0:36:48.240,0:36:53.200
play with that gang anytime

0:36:50.640,0:36:55.280
and then you know morgan had also added

0:36:53.200,0:36:58.160
that he would suit up in a heartbeat to

0:36:55.280,0:37:00.079
to be able to play with them um and then

0:36:58.160,0:37:03.440
it kind of went back and forth

0:37:00.079,0:37:05.760
that they were in talks to try and get

0:37:03.440,0:37:06.640
uh jeffrey dean morgan to play but

0:37:05.760,0:37:09.119
obviously

0:37:06.640,0:37:09.839
kovid kind of screwed things up with you

0:37:09.119,0:37:13.200
know

0:37:09.839,0:37:13.680
with the uh being a reality and then

0:37:13.200,0:37:16.560
again

0:37:13.680,0:37:17.599
it kind of went back and forth and he

0:37:16.560,0:37:20.640
was like okay

0:37:17.599,0:37:21.280
i’m ready you know let me know when and

0:37:20.640,0:37:23.599
then

0:37:21.280,0:37:24.480
when it was announced that uh jensen was

0:37:23.599,0:37:27.680
gonna be

0:37:24.480,0:37:29.280
uh a character morgan was like he’s

0:37:27.680,0:37:30.079
gonna be awesome in it he’s gonna be

0:37:29.280,0:37:32.880
great

0:37:30.079,0:37:34.560
and then it seems that they were able to

0:37:32.880,0:37:35.200
kind of work something out during the

0:37:34.560,0:37:38.160
summer

0:37:35.200,0:37:41.040
because the other thing was um jeffrey

0:37:38.160,0:37:43.200
dean morgan was obviously working on

0:37:41.040,0:37:44.880
uh the walking dead because the walking

0:37:43.200,0:37:47.680
dead had the whole

0:37:44.880,0:37:48.960
10 episodes that they were uh filming

0:37:47.680,0:37:53.040
over the summer

0:37:48.960,0:37:55.760
to uh to come out so now it seems like

0:37:53.040,0:37:56.320
something is definitely gonna happen and

0:37:55.760,0:37:58.720
don’t know

0:37:56.320,0:38:00.079
what his character is gonna be if it’s

0:37:58.720,0:38:03.280
gonna be just little

0:38:00.079,0:38:04.160
you know kind of a bit part thing but it

0:38:03.280,0:38:07.280
sounds like he

0:38:04.160,0:38:09.599
he is gonna be part of it and

0:38:07.280,0:38:11.119
we definitely became fans of the show

0:38:09.599,0:38:12.320
we’re already fans of jeffrey dean

0:38:11.119,0:38:14.560
morgan so

0:38:12.320,0:38:15.839
this is just kind of another little

0:38:14.560,0:38:18.880
cherry on top of

0:38:15.839,0:38:21.599
you know this already big sunday

0:38:18.880,0:38:22.079
that that we enjoy you know in the boys

0:38:21.599,0:38:24.560
and of

0:38:22.079,0:38:25.119
of all the people that you would think

0:38:24.560,0:38:28.079
of for

0:38:25.119,0:38:29.359
the boys he is probably the number one

0:38:28.079,0:38:32.480
person that would be perfect

0:38:29.359,0:38:34.560
oh i could totally see him you know

0:38:32.480,0:38:36.160
and what would be funny was if he played

0:38:34.560,0:38:38.160
like a good guy

0:38:36.160,0:38:39.680
you know because like a good version of

0:38:38.160,0:38:42.240
deegan

0:38:39.680,0:38:42.720
yeah that would be kind of you know kind

0:38:42.240,0:38:44.960
of

0:38:42.720,0:38:46.640
funny but i hope he plays a bad guy too

0:38:44.960,0:38:48.000
so he would be a great compliment to the

0:38:46.640,0:38:50.000
billy butcher character

0:38:48.000,0:38:52.000
yeah i could see that something like

0:38:50.000,0:38:52.560
that yeah like he comes in to kind of

0:38:52.000,0:38:53.520
help

0:38:52.560,0:38:55.359
but like i would have seen him with

0:38:53.520,0:38:56.480
superpowers though yeah that would be

0:38:55.359,0:38:58.960
kind of cool

0:38:56.480,0:39:01.200
um so walking dead will actually be

0:38:58.960,0:39:04.240
returning for six new episodes

0:39:01.200,0:39:08.960

0:39:04.240,0:39:10.320
on amc how exciting that is

0:39:08.960,0:39:11.680
and that was all we had for our

0:39:10.320,0:39:12.480
entertainment news this week we’re gonna

0:39:11.680,0:39:13.920
take a

0:39:12.480,0:39:16.160
very quick break we’ll come back and

0:39:13.920,0:39:18.350
we’ll start with your insightful pick of

0:39:16.160,0:39:22.400
the week okay

0:39:18.350,0:39:24.800
[Applause]

0:39:22.400,0:39:26.400
go for your insightful pick so my

0:39:24.800,0:39:29.920
insightful pick this week

0:39:26.400,0:39:32.960
is a netflix series called

0:39:29.920,0:39:33.440
firefly lane it features two best

0:39:32.960,0:39:36.480
friends

0:39:33.440,0:39:38.720
tully and kate and how they support each

0:39:36.480,0:39:40.880
other through good times and bad times

0:39:38.720,0:39:42.320
with an unbreakable bond that takes them

0:39:40.880,0:39:45.359
from their teens

0:39:42.320,0:39:46.240
all the way into their 40s it’s actually

0:39:45.359,0:39:50.000
based off

0:39:46.240,0:39:52.400
of a novel of the same name

0:39:50.000,0:39:54.839
um and what’s interesting is it’s kind

0:39:52.400,0:39:57.920
of you know your best friend

0:39:54.839,0:40:01.200
uh gal pal story

0:39:57.920,0:40:03.440
um you see them meet when they’re about

0:40:01.200,0:40:06.160
14 in the in the 70s

0:40:03.440,0:40:08.079
and then the story kind of you know

0:40:06.160,0:40:10.480
takes you to the the present which is

0:40:08.079,0:40:12.640
actually 2003.

0:40:10.480,0:40:14.319
and then it goes to the 80s and you get

0:40:12.640,0:40:16.720
to see them in college

0:40:14.319,0:40:17.920
and then you know it it constantly goes

0:40:16.720,0:40:19.680
back and forth

0:40:17.920,0:40:21.359
uh throughout the decade so you get to

0:40:19.680,0:40:23.040
see them as kids you get to see them in

0:40:21.359,0:40:26.400
college you get to see them

0:40:23.040,0:40:29.119
you know in their 20s and then you know

0:40:26.400,0:40:30.880
what they’re currently going through now

0:40:29.119,0:40:34.319
and and back and forth so

0:40:30.880,0:40:36.400
um kind of reminiscent of um

0:40:34.319,0:40:38.400
sisterhood of like the traveling pants

0:40:36.400,0:40:41.440
or the yaya sisterhood so it’s that

0:40:38.400,0:40:43.839
you know that kind of chick flicky

0:40:41.440,0:40:45.520
type thing um but what’s interesting is

0:40:43.839,0:40:47.200
at the end of every episode there’s kind

0:40:45.520,0:40:48.480
of like a little teaser a little

0:40:47.200,0:40:51.760
cliffhanger

0:40:48.480,0:40:52.000
of something you know that happened in

0:40:51.760,0:40:55.040
the

0:40:52.000,0:40:58.240
present but you don’t know what it is

0:40:55.040,0:41:02.079
and uh there’s 10 episodes in the season

0:40:58.240,0:41:04.240
um what i did find out was that the book

0:41:02.079,0:41:05.359
is actually a little bit different than

0:41:04.240,0:41:08.640
the series

0:41:05.359,0:41:10.240
where in the book they had one of the

0:41:08.640,0:41:13.200
characters die

0:41:10.240,0:41:15.680
in the series they kind of had some they

0:41:13.200,0:41:19.920
allude to somebody else passing away

0:41:15.680,0:41:21.440
so um they’re nothing’s been renewed yet

0:41:19.920,0:41:24.000
for a second season

0:41:21.440,0:41:25.760
but they could obviously take it because

0:41:24.000,0:41:28.800
there was a second book

0:41:25.760,0:41:31.119
um in in the series that that came out

0:41:28.800,0:41:32.240
so it’ll be interesting to see how they

0:41:31.119,0:41:35.760
change it

0:41:32.240,0:41:38.000
from you know how the the book was so

0:41:35.760,0:41:39.760
you know if you’re into that you know

0:41:38.000,0:41:43.440
chick flicky

0:41:39.760,0:41:46.960
girl powermint thing

0:41:43.440,0:41:51.119
then i i know i know it’s totally you

0:41:46.960,0:41:54.070
you’re totally the audience for it

0:41:51.119,0:41:57.010
all right good pick thank you

0:41:54.070,0:41:58.480
[Applause]

0:41:57.010,0:42:01.520
[Music]

0:41:58.480,0:42:02.000
so my pick this week strangely enough i

0:42:01.520,0:42:03.760
think this

0:42:02.000,0:42:05.280
week two or week three where it’s not a

0:42:03.760,0:42:08.319
documentary yeah

0:42:05.280,0:42:11.280
something like that here so this week is

0:42:08.319,0:42:11.760
uh one division on disney plus even

0:42:11.280,0:42:14.839
though you

0:42:11.760,0:42:16.079
hated it the first week i’ll get to that

0:42:14.839,0:42:19.040
relax

0:42:16.079,0:42:20.880
just saying wanda vision is a blend of

0:42:19.040,0:42:22.880
classic television and the marvel

0:42:20.880,0:42:24.560
cinematic universe in which juan the

0:42:22.880,0:42:26.800
maxim of envision

0:42:24.560,0:42:29.359
two super powered beings living

0:42:26.800,0:42:32.079
idealized suburban lives

0:42:29.359,0:42:33.839
begin to suspect that everything is not

0:42:32.079,0:42:36.640
as it seems

0:42:33.839,0:42:38.800
now as you said i had wanted to feature

0:42:36.640,0:42:39.839
this a few weeks ago but to be perfectly

0:42:38.800,0:42:41.680
honest

0:42:39.839,0:42:43.359
it had me scratching my head for the

0:42:41.680,0:42:46.240
first three episodes

0:42:43.359,0:42:48.000
deciding if if it was worth recommending

0:42:46.240,0:42:50.240
to the audience

0:42:48.000,0:42:52.800
the premise of the show was couched in

0:42:50.240,0:42:54.800
nostalgic tv sitcoms

0:42:52.800,0:42:57.440
and there really seemed to be no rhyme

0:42:54.800,0:42:59.599
or reason behind it

0:42:57.440,0:43:01.680
by episode 4 some of the clarity starts

0:42:59.599,0:43:04.319
to creep into the series

0:43:01.680,0:43:06.880
and it began to emerge as the marvel

0:43:04.319,0:43:09.440
universe that we know and love

0:43:06.880,0:43:09.920
each episode’s loaded with easter eggs

0:43:09.440,0:43:12.480
if you’re

0:43:09.920,0:43:13.280
careful enough to notice them or like me

0:43:12.480,0:43:16.480
you cheat and

0:43:13.280,0:43:18.160
read the summaries afterwards

0:43:16.480,0:43:19.680
some are related to the marvel cinematic

0:43:18.160,0:43:21.280
universe some are related to the

0:43:19.680,0:43:23.359
original comics but almost

0:43:21.280,0:43:25.040
all of them play a significant part in

0:43:23.359,0:43:26.560
telling the story

0:43:25.040,0:43:29.680
if you’re smart enough to pick up on

0:43:26.560,0:43:31.680
them and that’s really the tricky part

0:43:29.680,0:43:33.040
the show brings several tertiary

0:43:31.680,0:43:36.640
characters together from

0:43:33.040,0:43:39.920
other marvel pro projects in kind of a b

0:43:36.640,0:43:42.160
team style of a non-superpowered

0:43:39.920,0:43:44.800
avengers so you get a character from

0:43:42.160,0:43:46.319
thor you get a character from ant-man

0:43:44.800,0:43:49.280
you get a character from

0:43:46.319,0:43:50.160
um captain marvel and they work together

0:43:49.280,0:43:54.000
as a team

0:43:50.160,0:43:56.720
right uh kind of piecing things together

0:43:54.000,0:43:57.839
and figuring out what the puzzle is so

0:43:56.720,0:44:01.599
we even had a

0:43:57.839,0:44:04.480
cameo appearance uh by our in studio

0:44:01.599,0:44:06.400
model mixer the road caster pro

0:44:04.480,0:44:09.599
that you were like more excited about

0:44:06.400,0:44:12.160
that than that was anything

0:44:09.599,0:44:13.520
as my mixer shows up in the show because

0:44:12.160,0:44:15.359
it really it’s a great piece of

0:44:13.520,0:44:18.560
technology and it looks good

0:44:15.359,0:44:21.599
that’s the important thing um

0:44:18.560,0:44:23.520
so yeah the show’s okay now i think it’s

0:44:21.599,0:44:24.720
we’re kind of moving in a direction that

0:44:23.520,0:44:26.400
kind of

0:44:24.720,0:44:28.079
doesn’t have us speculating about

0:44:26.400,0:44:29.119
everything because by the end of episode

0:44:28.079,0:44:32.400
three

0:44:29.119,0:44:34.880
we just we had no idea what was going on

0:44:32.400,0:44:35.440
right and we were just sort of making

0:44:34.880,0:44:37.119
you know

0:44:35.440,0:44:39.520
it struck me as like when the first

0:44:37.119,0:44:40.720
matrix movie came out

0:44:39.520,0:44:42.560
and we found out that there was going to

0:44:40.720,0:44:44.560
be a sequel to it everyone

0:44:42.560,0:44:46.000
speculated on what the sequel was going

0:44:44.560,0:44:47.920
to be what i was going to address

0:44:46.000,0:44:49.119
what the origins were and everybody was

0:44:47.920,0:44:50.480
wrong right

0:44:49.119,0:44:52.640
and that was what i was afraid of with

0:44:50.480,0:44:53.359
this was that they weren’t giving us

0:44:52.640,0:44:56.160
enough

0:44:53.359,0:44:57.200
to see where the story was going until

0:44:56.160,0:45:00.079
episode four

0:44:57.200,0:45:01.920
right you you really needed to kind of

0:45:00.079,0:45:06.079
just watch it

0:45:01.920,0:45:07.440
and just let it simmer and just go

0:45:06.079,0:45:09.440
because what was happening in the

0:45:07.440,0:45:12.400
episodes right had almost

0:45:09.440,0:45:13.760
nothing to do with the overarching plot

0:45:12.400,0:45:16.319
in the first three episodes

0:45:13.760,0:45:18.800
right so they were literally like

0:45:16.319,0:45:22.240
standalone little episodes

0:45:18.800,0:45:23.440
but now after you know episode 4 episode

0:45:22.240,0:45:25.200
5

0:45:23.440,0:45:26.960
those easter eggs that were dropped in

0:45:25.200,0:45:28.400
there make sense right

0:45:26.960,0:45:30.079
one of the easter eggs that they they

0:45:28.400,0:45:31.359
drop frequently is there’s one or two

0:45:30.079,0:45:33.359
commercials

0:45:31.359,0:45:35.280
that you get that aren’t commercials

0:45:33.359,0:45:38.800
right they’re commercials for the

0:45:35.280,0:45:40.160
in show tv show right

0:45:38.800,0:45:42.160
and there’s always something subtle

0:45:40.160,0:45:44.880
about that that’s a marvel related

0:45:42.160,0:45:46.400
right and what was interesting because

0:45:44.880,0:45:49.599
like this week’s

0:45:46.400,0:45:52.640
episode episode 6 the commercial

0:45:49.599,0:45:55.359
kind of didn’t make any sense

0:45:52.640,0:45:56.400
unless you go and you read some of these

0:45:55.359,0:46:00.960
spoilers

0:45:56.400,0:46:04.319
and you go oh okay

0:46:00.960,0:46:08.480
and you see that there is so

0:46:04.319,0:46:12.160
much thought put into every

0:46:08.480,0:46:15.839
little thing layers upon layers

0:46:12.160,0:46:17.839
upon layers and some of stuff that

0:46:15.839,0:46:19.599
if you’re not a die-hard fan that read

0:46:17.839,0:46:20.240
the comics religiously right now you’re

0:46:19.599,0:46:22.400
not gonna

0:46:20.240,0:46:23.680
unless you read the summaries right and

0:46:22.400,0:46:27.280
that’s what i think is

0:46:23.680,0:46:30.400
so great because they obviously did this

0:46:27.280,0:46:31.599
for the die hard fans you know so you

0:46:30.400,0:46:34.079
get the people that

0:46:31.599,0:46:34.720
read every comic and go oh this is this

0:46:34.079,0:46:37.200
episode

0:46:34.720,0:46:39.119
you know this issue this blah blah blah

0:46:37.200,0:46:42.800
this you know they can tell you

0:46:39.119,0:46:44.960
exactly where this was very similar

0:46:42.800,0:46:46.800
to the level of detail that you get from

0:46:44.960,0:46:48.319
the mandalorian to the point of we have

0:46:46.800,0:46:51.440
one episode of the mandalorian

0:46:48.319,0:46:52.880
yeah where this little r5 droid shows up

0:46:51.440,0:46:54.240
and you happen to notice that the back

0:46:52.880,0:46:56.560
of the r5 droid has

0:46:54.240,0:46:57.599
you know a bunch of burnt smudge on the

0:46:56.560,0:47:00.160
back

0:46:57.599,0:47:01.359
and you realize that it’s the droid they

0:47:00.160,0:47:02.960
carried over from

0:47:01.359,0:47:04.400
a new hope you know that’s the level of

0:47:02.960,0:47:05.040
detail that was there and that’s the

0:47:04.400,0:47:06.480
kind of level

0:47:05.040,0:47:08.400
of detail you’re getting in the show

0:47:06.480,0:47:10.079
yeah so i it’s definitely

0:47:08.400,0:47:12.000
you know and i think that’s the thing is

0:47:10.079,0:47:14.160
that you know like obviously

0:47:12.000,0:47:15.599
i’m a marvel fan but i never read any of

0:47:14.160,0:47:17.040
the comics so there’s a lot of stuff

0:47:15.599,0:47:20.240
that’s going

0:47:17.040,0:47:21.599
over my head but i’m smart enough to

0:47:20.240,0:47:24.319
kind of pick up

0:47:21.599,0:47:25.280
hmm this this is something this isn’t

0:47:24.319,0:47:27.680
just

0:47:25.280,0:47:28.640
well whatever what i like about it is

0:47:27.680,0:47:31.119
it’s it’s

0:47:28.640,0:47:32.319
enough in the show to spark me to go do

0:47:31.119,0:47:34.800
the research yes

0:47:32.319,0:47:36.720
to learn the back story right exactly so

0:47:34.800,0:47:37.440
i’ve learned a tremendous amount from

0:47:36.720,0:47:39.040
that

0:47:37.440,0:47:41.680
initiative and if it’s something that

0:47:39.040,0:47:44.160
you’ve only watched the marvel movies

0:47:41.680,0:47:44.960
there’s enough to pick up right on

0:47:44.160,0:47:46.960
different things

0:47:44.960,0:47:48.000
is the b team that we get are all from

0:47:46.960,0:47:49.839
marvel movies right

0:47:48.000,0:47:51.760
so you know and that was something that

0:47:49.839,0:47:53.440
where when we were watching it with our

0:47:51.760,0:47:54.960
daughter we would stop and kind of

0:47:53.440,0:47:55.760
explain something to her and she’d be

0:47:54.960,0:47:58.880
like oh

0:47:55.760,0:48:00.880
okay and then certain things you know

0:47:58.880,0:48:01.920
made sense to kind of help the story

0:48:00.880,0:48:05.359
along so

0:48:01.920,0:48:07.760
so one division on disney plus

0:48:05.359,0:48:10.960
streaming now and we’ll be right back

0:48:07.760,0:48:10.960
with some afterthoughts

0:48:12.710,0:48:16.800
[Applause]

0:48:14.640,0:48:19.040
go with your afterthoughts so this was

0:48:16.800,0:48:21.920
something that that kind of

0:48:19.040,0:48:24.160
i saw a news article for our our local

0:48:21.920,0:48:27.520
news that had talked about it

0:48:24.160,0:48:30.559
and it is a pop-up dining and sci-fi

0:48:27.520,0:48:32.160
experience uh it is called a galaxy

0:48:30.559,0:48:34.720
burger pop-up

0:48:32.160,0:48:35.760
and currently it is in springfield

0:48:34.720,0:48:38.559
pennsylvania

0:48:35.760,0:48:40.160
uh it actually goes until next week um

0:48:38.559,0:48:43.200
february 21st

0:48:40.160,0:48:47.280
the dates were actually january 29th

0:48:43.200,0:48:50.400
uh to february 21st um and they have set

0:48:47.280,0:48:53.680
times and you need a uh ticketed theme

0:48:50.400,0:48:56.960
time uh a ticketed

0:48:53.680,0:49:00.400
time uh to enter um this

0:48:56.960,0:49:02.480
experience so think of um you know your

0:49:00.400,0:49:06.640
favorite burger joint and

0:49:02.480,0:49:09.680
a uh comic con kind of mashed together

0:49:06.640,0:49:12.079
um so they have uh time

0:49:09.680,0:49:14.079
tickets every 30 minutes and you have

0:49:12.079,0:49:15.680
two and a half hours to experience the

0:49:14.079,0:49:18.480
entire adventure

0:49:15.680,0:49:20.079
adventure so obviously they’re doing the

0:49:18.480,0:49:23.280
time tickets due to

0:49:20.079,0:49:24.640
coveted safety measures to ensure and

0:49:23.280,0:49:27.680
also ensure that everybody

0:49:24.640,0:49:28.800
has a fun and safe adventure so they

0:49:27.680,0:49:30.640
basically allow you

0:49:28.800,0:49:32.000
30 minutes to eat and enjoy the

0:49:30.640,0:49:34.720
restaurant and then

0:49:32.000,0:49:35.599
two hours to kind of do the other

0:49:34.720,0:49:38.640
adventures

0:49:35.599,0:49:40.880
uh and activities um

0:49:38.640,0:49:42.559
so they have uh you know the the one

0:49:40.880,0:49:45.599
ticket price was basically the

0:49:42.559,0:49:49.040
galaxy experience where it’ll uh

0:49:45.599,0:49:51.440
give you a sandwich a side and a drink

0:49:49.040,0:49:52.720
and then it gave you admission into the

0:49:51.440,0:49:55.200
experience

0:49:52.720,0:49:57.440
with additional photo opportunities and

0:49:55.200,0:50:00.480
it was running like forty two dollars so

0:49:57.440,0:50:01.680
when you think about how much uh a comic

0:50:00.480,0:50:04.240
con is

0:50:01.680,0:50:05.599
uh you know to get in most comic cons

0:50:04.240,0:50:08.240
are like 50 bucks so

0:50:05.599,0:50:08.800
for less than that you were also getting

0:50:08.240,0:50:10.800
uh

0:50:08.800,0:50:13.520
a burger and a drink and then they had

0:50:10.800,0:50:16.960
like a vip experience that included

0:50:13.520,0:50:20.160
um you know a blue milkshake um

0:50:16.960,0:50:21.040
along with a t-shirt uh as well uh they

0:50:20.160,0:50:23.520
also had a

0:50:21.040,0:50:24.559
kids uh price as well which was thirty

0:50:23.520,0:50:26.960
two dollars

0:50:24.559,0:50:28.000
um but they had all of these different

0:50:26.960,0:50:30.480
um

0:50:28.000,0:50:32.240
artifacts that you could uh you know

0:50:30.480,0:50:35.280
take your pictures with

0:50:32.240,0:50:39.119
um it’s being held like i said at the

0:50:35.280,0:50:42.160
um the the springfield mall

0:50:39.119,0:50:42.559
in springfield pennsylvania and it’s you

0:50:42.160,0:50:44.319
know

0:50:42.559,0:50:45.920
kind of a pop-up and i think the idea is

0:50:44.319,0:50:47.119
that they’re going to kind of move it

0:50:45.920,0:50:50.160
around so i don’t know

0:50:47.119,0:50:51.839
where it’s planning to go

0:50:50.160,0:50:53.359
you know afterwards but for somebody

0:50:51.839,0:50:56.319
that’s looking to go to

0:50:53.359,0:50:57.200
to a comic con and is missing that you

0:50:56.319,0:50:59.119
know

0:50:57.200,0:51:00.400
that experience it kind of looks you

0:50:59.119,0:51:02.079
know interesting

0:51:00.400,0:51:04.000
uh you know something to something

0:51:02.079,0:51:05.839
different to do very cool and that’s one

0:51:04.000,0:51:07.599
thing that we’re definitely

0:51:05.839,0:51:09.760
kind of jonesing for at this point in

0:51:07.599,0:51:11.040
the pandemic is missing out on on some

0:51:09.760,0:51:11.440
of these pop culture things that we

enjoy

0:51:11.440,0:51:18.559

0:51:22.559,0:51:26.800
calls you know they’re doing those

0:51:24.559,0:51:29.760
experiences so you can kind of get

0:51:26.800,0:51:31.599
that aspect of it but to actually be

0:51:29.760,0:51:32.160
able to physically go and see stuff

0:51:31.599,0:51:33.520
