    Star Wars Prequels vs Sequels

    Star Wars Prequels vs Sequels

    The original trilogy of Star Wars movies are unanimously agreed to be the best of the three trilogies, but how do the prequels and sequels stand when put against each other? The prequels have gotten a lot of criticism for many years, with the prequels only recently being more praised than trashed, and the sequels have been a controversial discussion among the Star Wars fanbase since the release of the Force Awakens. This week, Blake and JJ are tackling this topic, talking about the pros and cons both trilogies have, from their plots and characters, to their memorable moments and musical score. There’s also discussion on how nostalgia plays a heavy part in people’s opinions on the films, the generation, and how external content (such as television shows and direct sequels) can affect different products of the franchise, both positively and negatively. They also discuss what they’ve done Disney lately, and some Disney news, involving the potential cancellation of a much anticipated Star Wars project and the confirmed arrival of a much beloved cartoon series to Disney+, with much hope for a new season. Now jump on in and hit that play button, and see how these two trilogies compare to each other!

    Disney Parks on Film

    Disney Parks on Film

    Over the decades Disney parks have been featured on film. Whether it is a full featured film like Saving Mr. Banks or an ABC sitcom like Full House, Disney has found a way to bring the excitement of the parks through this form of media.
    This idea does a lot for the parks. It brings awareness to the public about all the exciting things that can be experienced at one of the theme parks. It is obviously a great tool for marketing the parks. You cannot help but want to go to a park after watching your favorite sitcom family experience the trip of a lifetime.
    The television shows in particular do this really well. When you watch the Johnsons from Blackish go to Walt Disney World where the kids take full advantage of their VIP status makes you want to do the same. Even someone who is never happy like Roseanne can find that happiness when visiting Walt Disney World.
    In this episode Rachel and Jeremiah talk about the best and worst of these. They go over some of their favorite moments on film that feature both Disney World and DIsneyland. What worked for them and what was a failure? Come join them in this fun conversation about Disney parks on film.

    Disney Plus Tiers

    Disney Plus Tiers

    Blake and JJ are bringing something quite new to the table in this week’s episode: a tier list. They've created a tier list of a majority of the most popular shows on Disney+, which include the Emmy-award winning Mandalorian to the most recent MCU show, Ms. Marvel. After talking about some of what they’ve done Disney lately, they jump into a quick explanation of a tier list, and get to work ranking the Disney+ shows on the tier list. Tier lists are really easy to use, and we’d highly recommend you trying it yourself on the link provided below, and sharing it on Facebook! We love to see other people’s rankings and opinions, and how they differ from each other. So go ahead and grab that tier list, and fill it out while you listen!
    Here’s the tier list if you’d like to join along!
    What did your tier list look like? How did it compare with ours? Let us know, and connect with us at Mouse House Weekly, we’d love to discuss with you!

Empire hits 40 years

Just finished. Colby, you have a future in broadcasting/media or whatever you choose to do. Your input is effortless for someone so young. Darrell and Bradley you guys were just as great as you always are. That being said, I think as a member of the generation of children who saw A New Hope in its original run and the same for Empire and Jedi, I have a different perspective. I never ever touched an action figure from this franchise or have spent more than 5 min playing a Star Wars themed video game. I appreciate everyone’s connection to the series, but if I played the game that Darrell suggested and there was only the first movie released, I would be completely ok with that. Yoda’s dialogue and story arc are essential to Empire and Jedi, but his muppet movements and Frank Oz’s voice were too cartoonish for me even as
15 year old. I still love the movie and love the Yoda character, but I wish would have just cast a little-person in the role and made him more believable. And Bradley, I was at least one of the people who told you I thought CGI Yoda warrior was ridiculous. My soft rant here isn’t meant to make me out to be one of the rabid Star Wars hater-fans, because honestly, after listening to you guys I kind want to re-watch all
The films again. And related to that, I believe it was Topher Grace who did the 9 film re-edit. Lastly, my
biggest gripe about Star Wars is I feel like they sold out to Disney. I personally have zero interest in getting a Disney subscription, but that evidently is the only way I will get to ever see the last film. Not sure what
I’ll do. As Coby ended, “May the force be with you.”
