By Adam Pawlus — Monday, May 23, 2016

According to VentureBeat - Netflix to become exclusive U.S. pay TV home for latest Disney movies from September.   But what does that mean?  From the article:

"It’s worth emphasizing that this will apply only to new theatrical releases, as there are separate licensing deals in place for other Disney content."

Well, there you have it - maybe this will pave the way to that all-important live-action show that we've never seen much progress on, if it's ever going to happen.

May the Fourth Be R5-M4 the Astromech Droid

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, May 4, 2016

As I write this, auctions for R5-M4 are popping up.   This may well be the first-ever action figure labeled "Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You" and is being reportedly sold in Orlando's Disney theme park(s).   I don't have prices, I don't have specifics, I don't know if it's in Anaheim, and I don't have one yet myself.   But I do know you can see one if you click here.

UPDATE: Long-time reader TotallyRawe left a comment indicating this is indeed showing up in Anaheim.  Buy one!  Or two, send me one.  Happy hunting droid junkies!
