Disney gives a small glimpse at Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker
August 26th, 2019 under Disney+, Star Wars. [ Comments: 3 ]

We are less than four months away until the final episode of Star Wars comes out and now we are seeing some video from Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker. Over the weekend, Disney released a special look at the film during a panel at D23.

Fans of the franchise say that they can predict what might be happening, but they will not know for sure until December 20th. At that point, all the answers will be answered. Unless you cannot get the day off of work to see it. Then you will have to wait until the 21st. Or if you are Jewish, then on the 25th.

I wonder if this movie will beat out Avengers: End Game in box office titles. I doubt it, so it will be interesting to see how it does as compared to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I still have not seen that movie.


BTWF: Mark Hamill on Night Gallery
June 25th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]

Before Mark Hamill was the Joker, the joke was on him in Night Gallery. He looks the same now as he did when he was 20 in that 1972 episode.


BTWF: Mark Hamill on The Bill Cosby Show
June 24th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]

Before the force was strong with Mark Hamill, he desperately needed it on The Bill Cosby Show. Thankfully, he learned how to fight better on screen than he did when he was 19 in that 1970 episode. It was his first acting job, so we can forgive him.


The singing seal!
June 22nd, 2019 under Animals, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]

If someone told you that a seal could sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, you would be that is cool. However, Zola can sing that nursery rhyme and the Star Wars theme. Now that is so out of this world that it is in a galaxy far far away.

According to CBS News, Zola and two other seals, Janice and Gandalf, were taught how to mimic sounds. While Zola is the singer, the other two can mimic vowels. Dr. Amanda Stansbury and Professor Vincent Janik of the Scottish Oceans Institute at the University of St Andrews in Scotland taught them how to speak in hopes that it could “help shed light on speech disorders.”

Pretty impressive. I cannot wait to have a conversation with a seal. Hopefully, that will happen in our lifetime. If it does, then what do you say to them? Polly, want a cracker, is already taken. They will probably be like stop giving us balls to balance on our nose. Then they would tell us that they are so much better than us as they take over the world. Maybe it is not a good thing that we are teaching seals to use their voices?


Mark Hamill got fired from Jack in the Box
June 11th, 2019 under James Corden, Star Wars. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 1981, Mark Hamill was a household name thanks to Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back. Because of that fame, he was able to star in The Elephant Man on Broadway. While that was him, Bradley Whitford was waiting for his start in the biz and was working as a waiter in Manhattan to make ends meet. The Studio 60 star got a little treat one night when Luke Skywalker walked into his restaurant and sat down at his table. Not only that he got a good tip from the star.

Yesterday, when they were both on The Late Late Show, James Corden wanted to see if Hamill remembered that moment from nearly 40 years ago. Sadly, he did not.

What he did remember was when he worked as a waiter and that is why he gave Whitford a good tip. He also remembered when he worked at Jack in the Box. He was in the back, but all he wanted to do was work the window at the drive-thru. Finally, he was given the chance and felt that the clown needed to sounded like a clown. He did his best clown voice and his manager sent him home…permanently.

I wonder if that manager realizes he fired the future voice of Joker? I wonder what he is doing now? Besides kicking himself for firing Mark Hamill.
