During this quarantine period, I’ve been rewatching a lot of my old favorites on Disney Plus. I came across Aladdin, the live-action version, several times and skipped over it because I’d been there done that, wrote a whole post regarding the downfalls of remade and revamped movies because of it.Continue reading “3 things I noticed after watching Aladdin (2019) the second time”

Prior to the Star Wars Episode IX Panel today we found out that the Star Wars Saga will take a hiatus. Walt Disney’s CEO Bob Iger spoke with Bloomberg about shifting his focus to the newly announced Disney Plus streaming service.
Iger also dropped the bomb that the Skywalker saga in these films will come to a conclusion by the end of Episode IX due out December 20, 2019. I’m actually okay with this hiatus.
After watching the celebration stream, I’m looking forward to seeing Episode IX. All of the cast that spoke at the panel held JJ Abrams in such high regard, and I think that will shine through in the movies. Plus it’s really exciting that Billie Dee Williams will reprise he role as Lando Calrissian and Ian McDiarmid will bring back unlimited power as Emperor Palpatine as well!
It was nice to have a resurgence of the Star Wars franchise and meet knew characters. As much as it may hurt to let the Skywalkers go, perhaps new stories along the lines of Rogue One are best for the future of the Star Wars Franchise. I’m not suggesting a load of prequels, but stories being told from other perspectives and brand new character introductions as leads without nostalgia characters to boost the story.
Even though I screamed very loud when I heard Emperor Palpatine laugh at the end of the trailer. I also gasped when Ian McDiarmid showed up on the stage after the initial tearser to say, “Play it again”.
I’m a fan.
