You know it is coming and now, here’s a taste of what is to come this Christmas. The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode IX is here and along with it, the movie’s name: Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. If you don’t already know, episode 9 will be the concluding movie of the Skywalker saga started over 40 years ago. Obviously, having spent $4.05 billion in cash and stock to acquire Lucasfilm, Disney is not about to lay to rest this super lucrative revenue generator that also has an enormous fan base – more so when the franchise’s financial performance to date has been positive.

It has been while since we last talked about Beats. We didn’t think any that came up along the way was worthy after the one that has Apple’s W1 chip. Anyways, here’s one that is a wee bit interesting: Mickey Mouse edition Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones because, Mickey Mouse. The iconic cartoon mouse and the world’s only mouse that has a pet dog is now at a grand old age of 90. To make this occasion, Apple has revealed a pair of special edition Solo3 cans, the Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphone Mickey Mouse 90th Anniversary Edition (quite a mouthful, eh?). Continue reading Apple Announced Mickey Edition Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones
The need to protect actors during movie making lead to the creation of the job known as stunt doubles, AKA stuntman. Little do we know that a job normally reserved for the fearless could be at threat of robot takeover too. Believe or not, Disney is hatching a plan to let autonomous humanoids take on dangerous stunt. Continue reading Wait, What? Now, Even Stunt Man’s Job Is Threatened By Robots?
What you see here is a Millennium Falcon and nope, it wasn’t parked among the wastes of the desert planet Jakku. Neither was it in Rub al Khali desert near Abu Dhabi, or Hollywood backlot. No, wait. It was actually on a backlot, just not in stateside. In fact, it was uncovered to be parked on the backlot of Longcross Studios outside of London, just off the M3 freeway. I said ‘was’ because, it was spotted way back in June and as you know, Google Earth only updates the satellite images between 1 and 3 years, and so, for all we know, it may have already moved between now and then. Continue reading Did Disney Did A Bad Job In Trying To Hide The Millennium Falcon?

Disney’s biggest cash cow is probably not the surprise hit Frozen, or any other of its animated flicks. If anything, it would be Marvel and Star Wars, which now proves to be the two most worthy acquisitions the entertainment company has ever made. And I am not going to lie: we never loved Disney this much before. Disney has taken, in particular, Marvel to a height previously unthinkable and it is continuing to do so by giving fans more tangible experience outside of the theaters. The Marvel-themed Disney’s New York Hotel is one such endeavor. Continue reading Disneyland Paris To Get Marvel-Themed Disney’s New York Hotel
When Marvel/Disney decided to go big in promoting Marvel movies, collaborating with Samsung for an Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6, we totally understand why. After all, Iron Man and the Avengers were and are still huge contributors to Disney’s coffer, but Pirates of the Caribbean? Not to belittle the Pirates franchise I personally enjoy watching, or Johnny Depp or Jerry Bruckheimer, but we didn’t think it warrant such a treatment. Nevertheless, here it is, the Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean Galaxy S8. As expected, this special edition phone is everything the standard Galaxy S8 is, which means everything about is identical to the standard device, save for some cosmetic touches. Continue reading Will You Buy A Samsung Pirates of the Caribbean-Themed Galaxy S8?
I don’t care what others think about Disney Research’s study into catching a real ball in virtual reality, but me think it could be an advancement in cheating in real life. How? Imagine you are having trouble catching ball pitched in a baseball game or maybe even in a game of football, then this development could actually help you in picking up the skill real quick. But wouldn’t putting on a VR headset blind you from the outside world as it is, after all, not augmented reality?
