Mrs. Facesitter is a massive theatre buff (stop looking at me like we're tories) and is obviously devastated at what's happening to the industry generally, so she's absolutely beaming about this. Never seen it myself but recognise the songs (she plays the soundtrack constantly) so I'll definitely watch this when it comes on. 

Although it's not in keeping with the spirit of seeing it as intended, if this takes off it would be great to see more of these available to watch in one's living quarters. Hopefully it's of some help to the industry too, however small, which you'd hope would find its feet again and have waves of people coming back to the theatre afterwards. I'll be joining them.

Sure your missus is aware, but there's currently tonnes of theatre shows available online.

Hamilton is fucking boss. Been to see it twice at the West End so cannot wait to watch this. Was putting off getting Disney + because who needs another subscription, but this will tip me over the edge.

I’m sure you’re all aware of this, but for the benefit of any other technophobes out there I’ve just noticed that a load of the films have an “extras” section. These extras can range from trailers, to gag reels, to deleted scenes and even full blown documentaries.

There’s also some films with audio commentaries, including The Last Jedi commentary with Rian Johnson that I’m looking forward to watching

I knew the extras was there, but everything I’ve looked at just seemed to be a trailer, so o just assumed it was the same for everything else

Artemis Fowl sure leaves up to its name. Nonsensical tripe which had CGI which reminds me of Battlefield Earth.

Outside of The Mandalorian and Prop Culture, the only original content stuff I’ve really enjoyed has been the Short Circuit and Pixar SparksShorts set of short stories. Some nice stuff in there.

Being in lockdown up until 3 weeks ago helped me progress nicely on my Disney Afternoon block, completed both Rescue Rangers (which had one long 60+ episode series) and Gummi Bears (which had six mostly short seasons), the two fan canon seasons of Gargoyles (just have the 13 episode Goliath Chronicles season to watch) and the first season of Ducktales (also 60+ episodes long) but still have about 15 episodes of Darkwing Duck's first season to watch as that was closer to 80 episodes long

Some observations on each

Rescue Rangers - Chip's voice really, really starts to gate on you after the first 30 episodes, they over rely on using Fat Cat and the scientist as villains of the week near the end of the run

Gummi Bears - Gusto steals the show whenever he shows up, Sunni gets too whiny and needy especially when she's with Calla and Gruffi is a cunt

Gargoyles - Goliath is still an utter badass of a character, Broadway was my favorite side character when I was younger cos of how loveable he is, especially with Eliza but on second viewing that's now Brooklyn, especially in that one episode where Goliath, Eliza and Bronx are on the 'world tour' and he steps up as leader

Darkwing Duck - Launchpad works so much better as a sidekick in this show than he did as Scrooge's pilot on Ducktales, Quackerjack is my favorite villain, Honker's parents are really annoying

Ducktales - Still my all time favorite Disney cartoon, still don't understand what the big deal with the number 1 dime and why Magica craves it so much, anytime Donald makes a cameo is a fun episode, bracing myself for season two and the introduction of Bubba Duck, the Scrappy Doo of the show

I read the first 4 or 5 Artemis Fowl books years ago, basically as a protest to people telling me that I HAD to read Harry Potter. They're really good books and the first one especially, should be the easiest thing in the world to make into a movie.

It's basically Die Hard with faeries told from the perspective of Hans Gruber, if Hans Gruber was 10.

I've refused to watch the film on account of them basically abandoning the central premise of Artemis being a child supervillain, and it looking fucking shite.

The Frozen 2 documentary stuff is fucking fantastic. You don't even need to be a fan of the film. The access they get is incredible.

Yeah, I watched a couple of episodes of this. I think I preferred the 'Gallery: Mandalorian', format of production footage/round table discussion, but yeah that access is incredible.

Watched Timmy Failure for the 2nd time yesterday. By far the best Disney+ Original Movie so far. Just well directed, funny and accessible for kids and adults. Would happily see a sequel to it.

I’ve struggled with the Gallery: Mandalorian stuff ... there’s a strong self-congratulatory feeling in the round table stuff, and the acting one seemed to just devolve into them all telling each other how great they are, which I didn’t find especially illuminating. Dave Filoni’s defence of the prequels in the second episode was wonderful though.

That Hamilton is pretty bloody good.  Some absolute bangers as the young folks would say these days.
