So I have Disney+ until December 2022. Already paid. I'm also paying for Hulu w/no ads separately. 

 

If I were to "upgrade" to the bundle, how the hell do they handle that? I'm guessing I'm SOL. There is no benefit to bundling Hulu given the promotion I already have. 

 

I also assume other's here are in the same situation.

 

I looked into this recently. If you're on the prepaid dirt cheap 3 for price of 2 plan, you can "upgrade" to the bundle and they prorate the price. It's more expensive than what you're currently paying, at least it was when I looked for me.

 

It's a deal for new subs.

That soft spot must be your head, then, Angry!

The first 5 minutes are probably my least favourite 5 minutes of the series. The opening scene is great, but the Horatio Sanz alien character that he captures is just terrible. He looks and feels like

I'll be interested to see what films unavailable in UHD on disc or iTunes...etc are presented in 4k here. Australia's list includes Unbreakable which I know has a 4k master ready to go. I can only assume it's tied up with licensing to another channel here for a while longer (likewise Bob's Burgers which Australia is also getting but we're not just yet). There's expected to be even more than the above on the 23rd though (the promise is "over 400 titles') so we'll see. 

 

Toys is nice to see. I've always had a soft spot for that curio of a film and it never had a blu-ray or iTunes release.

The Muppet Show upscales look really nice, and from the episodes I checked they are thankfully the UK broadcast versions. The Chris Langham episode is missing, which is no real surprise, but the Brooke Shields episode isn't there either which is strange (I can only assume there was a rights issue they just couldn't clear, or she wouldn't sign off on the episode).

Further details on edits and omissions here:

 

On the Brooke Shields episode being missing:

 

Quote

Despite being previously released on the (non-Disney) Time-Life “Best of The Muppet Show” set, there were music rights issues that kept it from appearing on Disney+. Since Disney chose to remove the episode entirely rather than release an edited version, we’re holding out hope that they’re continuing to try and secure the rights so it may be added at a later date.

 

And some strangeness surrounding further missing episodes:

 

Quote

Here in the US, we’re missing the Kaye Ballard episode, which has been previously cleared for release on The Muppet Show‘s season 1 release. Our friends in Europe have reporting missing the John Denver and Spike Milligan episodes. Again, we’re hoping this is just a mistake and will be remedied.

 

They're right. I'm not seeing the John Denver or Spike Milligan episodes listed at all on this side of the Atlantic. The Kaye Ballard episode is there for me though. You can even see on the season episode listings that Ep1 of Season 4 (John Denver) is not listed here. It just begins with Episode 2. Season 3 goes from episode 14 to 16, where the Spike Milligan ep should sit between. That episode should in fact be 17, and so the order of several episodes has been messed up. Hopefully they will indeed fix this.

 

 

There are in fact some missing segments in some episodes too:

 

Quote

In addition to the episode cuts, we’re already hearing reports of missing segments. Despite being assured that the episodes will be presented in-full, there have been various cuts throughout the series. Thanks to eagle-eyed Reddit user Itachilshtar, here’s a seemingly complete list of edits:

  • Bernadette Peters: “They Call the Wind Maria” and “I’m Five” missing
  • Don Knots: “Lullaby of Birdland” missing and all scenes referencing it
  • Cheryl Ladd: UK Spot “There’s A New Sound” missing
  • Danny Kaye: UK Spot “Jogging” missing
  • Roger Miller: UK Spot “Down at the Old Bull and Bush” missing
  • Anne Murray: “Dancing on the Ceiling” missing
  • James Coburn: UK Spot “Bird Walk” missing
  • Tony Randall: “Ti-Pi-Tin” missing
  • Hal Linden: “If I Ruled the World” missing
  • Wally Boag: “The Ying Tong Song” missing
  • Buddy Rich: UK Spot “A Transport of Delight” missing
  • Marty Feldman: “Sesame Street Theme” missing

Wasn't that the whole plot of the episode?  The way I remember it, the whole thing was Fozzie becoming an official "cool guy" because he booked that song for the band (I think Don Knots played upright bass on it).  I have no idea why I remember that...

Ronald Moore is supposedly working on a show for Disney+ that will have something to do with the theme parks and exploring characters from theme park attractions and classic films. 
 

Pretty excited to see what comes of this.

Star is now live in the UK.

 

I'm not seeing any surprise 4k titles amongst the new additions (if there's a 4k disc or 4k on iTunes then it's 4k here though, with puzzling exceptions like The Favourite which is only HD on Star despite being 4k on iTunes). We don't have Speed on the service here in the UK, but despite the 4k master existing the countries where it is appearing on Star only have it in HD for now too.

 

It's weird seeing R rated stuff suddenly populating the main page alongside all the Disney movies. What do you kids want to watch? Cronenberg's The Fly or Mary Poppins? There's also a trio of National Geographic Nazi documentaries which I have to assume are new additions under the Star banner?! Weirder still is the fact Disney still seem happy to give the film Powder a place in their library and merrily allow its writer/director to enjoy residual kickbacks.

I had access to a limited library on Star at first until it requested my password which unlocked everything. 

 

It's a shame Bob's Burgers isn't on the UK service yet as Amazon still have the licence to stream it here. Likewise Modern Family only goes up to s8 for now on Star here. I've decided that I will let my annual subscription lapse next month and just switch to paying monthly as and when I see fit, but I do potentially have an opportunity to redeem 6 more months for free via a reward scheme so I may be able to cover myself through to the end of September.

That's hard to believe. I thought Lucasfilm had sworn to bury all those things (although the Clone Wars shorts are indeed fantastic.)


Are we talking the Tarvovsky Clone Wars? I have them on DVD tucked away somewhere. They were reference material for elements of Force Unleashed.

Press Release , not the full Christmas special 

 

https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/star-wars-holiday-special-boba-fett-ewoks-caravan-of-courage-disney-plus-1234932286/#!

 

The Star Wars Holiday Special” is finally coming to Disney Plus … kind of.

In the biggest bulk release of “Star Wars” content since the streamer’s launch, several “Star Wars” TV spinoffs from the 1970s, 1980s and 2000s will debut on Disney Plus on April 2. Among them will be the animated short “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee” — featuring the debut of bounty hunter Boba Fett — that played in the middle of the live-action “Holiday Special” when it first aired on CBS on 1978.

Joining “Faithful Wookiee” will be two TV movies featuring the cuddly Ewoks, 1984’s “Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure” and 1985’s “Ewoks: The Battle for Endor”; the animated “Ewoks” TV series that aired from 1985 to 1986; and the animated “Star Wars: Clone Wars” TV micro-series from Genndy Tartakovsky that aired on Cartoon Network from 2003 to 2005.”
