Marvel netflix shows

If you enjoy watching Marvel shows on Netflix, you might want to sit down for this: in the future, new Marvel shows will air on Disney’s in-development streaming service, leaving Netflix in the dust. This is all part of a larger plan Disney has to compete with Netflix, which included their as-of-now dead deal to purchase a large chunk of 21st Century Fox. The bottom line: the era of Marvel Netflix shows is nearing an end.

Luke Skywalker Last Jedi backstory

What was Luke Skywalker doing in the thirty years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens? We know about a few precious fragments of what happened to him during that time, but if you’re hoping for an extended exposition scene in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi in which Luke explains the past three decades to an inquisitive Rey, I’m sorry to report that you’re out of luck.

In a new interview, actor Mark Hamill reveals that Luke’s backstory is “not important” in The Last Jedi.

The Last Jedi questions

Sorry, fellow nerds: this is not going to go the way you think. Star Wars: The Last Jedi isn’t going to answer all your questions. At least according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. Kennedy recently spoke a little about Rian Johnson‘s upcoming Star Wars sequel and revealed that while Johnson’s film will provide fans with answers to some pressing The Last Jedi questions, others will remain a mystery.

Disney Needs to Chill Out Right Now

Disney L.A. Times ban

(Welcome to The Disney Discourse, a recurring feature where Josh Spiegel discusses the latest in Disney news. He goes deep on everything from the animated classics to the theme parks to live-action franchises. In this edition: between trying to buy 20th Century Fox and blacklisting the L.A. Times, Disney needs to chill the eff out.)

Update: Amid growing backlash, Disney has lifted their ban against L.A. Times film critics.

What a wonderful time it is to cover the film industry. The last couple months — has it really only been that long? — has been dominated (justifiably) by the flood of accusations of sexual harassment and assault against Harry Knowles, Harvey Weinstein, James Toback, and Kevin Spacey, among many others. But the last few days have offered a brief, if no less troubling, shift in the story, as the Walt Disney Company has been pushing its power around with little regard for who ends up in its wake. Earlier this week, there were shocking rumors regarding the company engaging in talks with 21st Century Fox to buy most of its studio product. More vexing, if more inside-baseball, was Disney’s choice to bar the Los Angeles Times from attending its press screenings.

jungle cruise pirates of the caribbean

From the moment Disney announced that the studio was making a Jungle Cruise movie based on their classic theme park ride, we knew the comparisons between this film and Pirates of the Caribbean – the most successful Disney movie based on a popular ride – would be inevitable. Now yet another person involved with the new Dwayne Johnson film has drawn that same comparison, along with divulging a tiny bit of info about the film’s approach we hadn’t heard before.

Thor Ragnarok composer interview

When he was hired to compose the score for Thor: Ragnarok, Mark Mothersbaugh was well aware that Marvel Studios has been hammered with criticism about bland and unoriginal scores for their superhero movies. So when he met with director Taika Waititi, Mothersbaugh put a two-pronged plan in place: to live up to the scores they’d done previously, but also to widen the scope and bring something new to the table that we hadn’t heard in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before.

For the former frontman of the successful new wave band Devo and someone who has since scored over 190 films, video games, and TV shows, this was a new challenge. But Mothersbaugh rose to the occasion and ended up crafting a score that complements Waititi’s comedic approach to the mythological hero and his journey. I spoke with the composer by phone to talk about his approach to the material, “quoting” Michael Giacchino’s Doctor Strange score, working on the David S. Pumpkins animated Halloween special, and more.

Fox Disney

After years of rumors involving Apple buying Disney or Disney buying Netflix, we have finally arrived at a potentially industry-shaking acquisition involving the House That Walt Built. According to a new report, 21st Century Fox (whose assets include the 20th Century Fox film studio and Fox television) have been talking with the Walt Disney Company about selling most of its assets as part of a plan to refocus and re-organize as a company built around news and sports. That means that Disney could acquire a massive and valuable library of movies, characters, and franchises to add to their already impressive line-up.

Does Luke join the Dark Side

“It’s time for the Jedi to end.” Star Wars fans practically lost their minds when Luke Skywalker uttered those words in a trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and that statement combined with images of the sci-fi icon looking stern and shrouded in shadows on posters have made it clear that the Luke we meet in this movie has experienced some major changes since we saw him in Return of the Jedi.

But does Luke join the Dark Side in The Last Jedi? In a new interview, actor Mark Hamill talks about Luke’s state of mind and sheds some light on how he’s doing when we catch up with him. If you’re looking to avoid spoilers, it might be best to sit this one out.
