This week the lads start the top of the pod by recapping some of movies and shows they’ve been watching in the last week. Aaron discusses his re-watch of Star Wars Rebels, and why he fell in love with 1917. Ped on the hand, jumped in to Ford vs. Ferrari and Terminator: Dark Fate. The latter film really caught Ped by surprise, and he was disappointed the film didn’t have better marketing, as it turned out to be a really good film.
The big news that dropped at the end of last week (just after last weeks podcast of course!), was footage that a fan had recorded of The Batman movie filming while on set in Glasgow. As seen in the video below, you can see Batman riding on a Bat-bike donning the brand new iteration of the Bat-suit.
HBO Max made a big announcement this week via Warner Media. It looks like Friends is coming back for an unscripted show to be featured on HBO Max. Very few details are known at this point, but it’s believed the original six members will report for filming.
Some rather big news from Disney this week is that Bob Iger will be stepping down as C.E.0. with immediate effect. Iger will stay on as Executive Chairman until the end of 2021, while Bob Chapek has been named as the new C.E.O. What does this mean to Disney, and Disney+? Aaron and Ped get into all the details of the impacts of the decisions, while also remarking on all the achievements of Bob Iger over his 15 year reign.
With all of this going on at Disney, Star Wars unveiled a secret project titled, ‘Project Luminous’. This will be a series of books based around a time period 200-400 years before the battle of Yavin (BBY), (the ending battle during A New Hope). Lots of details came out attached to this project and Aaron and Ped get really excited about what this could mean for the Star Wars franchise moving forward. Watch the announcement trailer below:

Lastly, it was reported just today (Thurs Feb 28, 2020), that Steven Spielberg will not coming back to direct Indiana Jones, but rather James Mangold will take his place. The guys talk about where the story could be headed, and also build on an article that discussed the potential of this becoming Disney+ show. Ped, and Aaron, run through the possibilities of what a weekly Indiana Jones show would look like.
