A welcome return into 2021, after our end of the year 2020 episode we start with a look back into a couple of questions from last time with a discussion on who actually does die the most in films if its not Sean Bean, and answering Ryan's question on how Donald Trump did end up in The Little Rascals film in the 1990s.
We spend a length of time discussing all 22 billion dollars worth of content Disney dumped out plans for in December for the next few years. We cover the Star content being added to Disney Plus with Fox, ABC, and other content arriving. We talk through the dozen or so Star Wars Disney Plus shows and the expansion to the ILM Stagecraft Studios they have used in The Mandolorian. We talk LucasFIlm's content including Willow, more or last Indiana Jones, Patty Jenkins Rogue Squadron film, and then all the stuff Disney is putting both TV and Film to Disney Plus, including live-action, Animation, and Pixar, We then finish up with all their Marvel content too!
After all that stuff, we talk Wonder Woman box office and viewing numbers on HBO Max, plus the fast tracked third film. Following the HBO Max dramas, we look at director and actors comments on HBO max, as well as the Mortal Komabt movies' date change, and the announcement of an Alien franchise series.

We talk there release date for Mad Max Furiousa, the internet loving Tom Cruise covid rant recording on the set of Mission Impossible, possibly buying MGM for $5.5 billion, the new Revenge of the Nerds and the Return of Night Court, and finish out talking about Jackass actors in hospital on day 2 of their fourth film and if we really want to see them do this to themselves in old age. We farewell Tommy Lister, Jeremy Bulloch, Dawn Wells, Marion Ramsey, Michael Apted, and Tanya Roberts before touching on a few trailers for Nobody, The Little Things, and Coming 2 America.
We round out the episode with retro reviews of Karate Kid 2 and 3 from Ryan so that we could watch and discuss Cobra Kai season 3 for you all, before sitting down to have a proper round of chat regarding Wonder Woman 1984.
