  • Ghost Stories: Pitching an MCU Disney+ Series

  • The Mandalorian Season 2 Finale Review

    The Mandalorian season 2 has now concluded and what a journey it was. While not perfect, the show expanded in scope and connected to disparate parts of the canon, all while maintaining a strong and emotional core with the relationship between the eponymous hero and his little green friend....
  • Questions and Hopes for the Future of Star Wars

    Last week on Disney’s Investor Day, the future of Star Wars, along with Marvel and many other Disney projects, was solidified. In short, there’s a hell of a lot of it coming. We may be three years out from the next big screen Star Wars experience, but there’s an...
