Insights Into Entertainment: Episode 73 “Crowning a New Head of Lucasfilm?”

This week’s Disney Detective explores the cautious reopening of Downtown Disney in California. We’ll also take a look at a rather comedic take on a malfunctioning audio-animatronic in Carousel of Progress. We’ll then take a look at an extremely talented 20 year old Tik Tok artist who seems to have captured the attention of a number of notable Disney people.

Star Wars Insights explores the rumored future of the franchise. Will Kathleen Kennedy be stepping away from Lucasfilm to pursue her own female-centric production company. This comes from the same source who suggested a radical move by Disney to explain away the sequel trilogy where many fans thing they took the franchise off course.

Entertainment News explores how San Diego Comic-Con will be coming to you at home this year. We’ll talk about the recently announced 6th season of the Crown. We’ll also take a look at the schedule of Great Performances that PBS will be releasing for us to enjoy a little bit of Broadway at home.

We’ll finish up with our Insightful Picks of the week were we both give our take on the recently released Hamilton on Disney Plus. Another great show!
