Holy Hell, PROMARE Looks Amazing

It’s been a while since I’ve watched anime regularly, but I may need to make it out to the theater for the special event to watch this in person!

The colors, the action, Promare looks unreal!

…I sure hope the subtitles are as lively and dramatic as shown here…

Ewan McGregor Rumored to Headline a STAR WARS: OBI-WAN Series for Disney+

Deadline:

Ewan McGregor may be picking up his lightsaber again. The 48-year-old Scottish actor is in talks about reprising his role as the heartfelt but headstrong Jedi master known as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a yet-to-be-titled Disney+ series, Deadline has confirmed.

Honestly, I’d love to see it. And I have a hunch we’ll learn more at Disney’s D23 event this weekend.

Apple’s THE MORNING SHOW Gets a Proper Teaser Trailer

Well, it certainly feels like the type of show which you’d find on HBO.

I’m all for the premise (for whatever reason, I’ve always been intensely fascinated by The Today Show), but Apple needs to give me some more reasons to pay them $10/month.

We’ll see what Apple announces regarding the rest of the lineup, and maybe some back catalog licenses?

There’s a LEGO FRIENDS (Like the TV Show) Set Coming For Some Reason

The Brothers Brick:

It’s been 25 years since the day Rachel entered the doors of the Central Perk Café dressed as a bride, kicking off the story of the six most famous friends in New York City. Recently, The LEGO Group has been doing an excellent job celebrating anniversaries of the most remarkable events (such as the moon landing) and the 25th anniversary of the US TV show Friends is yet another fantastic occasion for one special set, LEGO Ideas 21319 Central Perk. The model of the iconic coffee-house consists of 1,070 pieces and comes with 7 minifigures of the cast. The set will be available for purchase beginning September 1 and will retail for $59.99 US | $89.99 CAN | £64.99 UK.

The modern day, streaming based obsession with this show and The Office is so wild to me. I liked both shows just fine, but the current fervor behind both is weird.

The set itself is a big shrug to me – doesn’t look right, looking more like Cafe Nervosa from Fraiser – though the Gunther minifig is an unexpected addition.

(And I don’t get why people are like “WELL NOW THAT (SHOW) IS LEAVING NETFLIX, I HAVE TO GET (STREAMING SERVICE)”, I mean, iTunes and Amazon exist. You can buy these shows and own them forever, for a lot less than a recurring monthly commitment.)
