The Disney Thread: For Everything Concerning the House of Mouse

The season finale of The Mandalorian was damned good. The opening scene is pretty amazing.
My only complaint was the Kylo Ren effect.

I mean, I knew who the actor was playing him, but... when IG took off the Mandalorian's helmet, he looked less to me like Oberyn Martell and more like a mid-30s Corey Feldman who'd put on weight.

I guess the Disney Vault still exists after all: Films are quietly disappearing from Disney Plus

"Dr. Dolittle, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Home Alone and Home Alone 2, and The Sandlot are no longer streamable on Disney Plus. All these titles disappeared without warning, and so far, Disney hasn’t said anything about it. "
 
Oh for fuck's sake, how am I ever supposed to see some of this stuff (e.g., I've never seen The Sandlot) if the people who own it take it back from everyone else, but then just pretend it doesn't exist, stuff it in a chest, and sit on it?

I assume this means they've decided to issue "revised" versions, and want to make sure nobody has enough warning to archive the originals.

EDIT: Yeah, I know. Assuming they've previously been preserved intact, of course.

The more likely issue: the people involved with these films may have successfully won streaming revenue from these films and are entitled to income from them so Disney just... doesn't stream them.

As for Dr. Dolittle... it's probably because the new one is coming out, it sucks, and they don't want people to be able to watch the original instead.
 
Keep it up and it's back to the high seas you fucks.

On topic, I was lukewarmish on the Mandalorian in the middle point of the series (and I wish people wouldn't hire Bill Burr, he drags me kicking and screaming out of suspension of disbelief no matter where he shows up now, though it's almost made up for by Clancy Brown devil dude) but fuck were the two finale episodes great. Way to make me care about characters Favreau and Filoni.
 
I feel like we need this somehow redone as one o’ them alignment charts now.

I still like the sequels a lot better than the prequels, all in all.
From a technical standpoint, sure, but they felt kind of pointless to me.

At least the prequels walked (well, stumbled slowly on) their own path, instead of retracing the OT's steps with different pit-stops...

Disney Plus Is Rebooting Space Camp

Anyone else remember Space Camp? The movie about a group of kids who accidentally go into space? Like, not some aliens or future tech, but somehow end up in space on NASA's space shuttle. I don't even remember how it happened in the movie, but I have vague memories of having seen the film.

My favorite movie as a kid. :D
Also the reason so many kids wanted to go to Space Camp in the 80s.
 
I mean, that doesn't mean he wasn't abusive as well.
I listened to the whole audio, you know evidence, yeah not so much. She spends a lot time berating him for the times when he'd leave the room when she'd start getting violent, and multiple statements to the equivalent of 'Why do you keep making me hit you?" He admits to shoving her once so he could get away from her and throwing A thing once after she'd been lobbing a lot of things at him.
She's gaslighting enough to light up Victorian London.
But just assume the worst, when you could actually listen to the audio.
 
In this, I think we see some reverse sexism in action (which I don't mean as an attack or insult to you, Blots!).
If this was a case of a man being abusive to his wife, and someone said "but maybe she was abusive towards him, too", that wouldn't fly, at all. Victim blaming, assuming the worst, trying to minimize the abuse, what have you.
Now, though, there still is A LOT of "yeah, but maybe..." going on. We're not allowed to question the victim in any sort of abuse case because reasons, except when it's a famous guy? That's also unfair.
 
He talked about wanting to step down during the last couple of years, he finally did, but will stick around until the end of 2021.

Not sure if Chapek was the best choice for replacement, he's one of the reasons that WDW doesn't have a night parade at this time.
