🍅 Rotten Tomatoes: 83%
👥 Audience Score
: 63%
🎭 Genres: Drama, Action, Sci-Fi
⭐️ Starring: Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christiansen, Moses Igram, Joel Edgerton

📺 Where to watch: Disney+

The last episode just dropped on June 22nd, and getting to watch these each week as they came out was an absolute blast.

While it's not without its flaws and critique from both critics and audience members alike, if you're at all into Star Wars, I think you'll find this offers something pretty special and enjoyable.

While this series has been widely advertised and intended as a limited, single-season show, the director, Deborah Chow, suggested that if there was not only demand, but a real, good reason to continute Obi-Wan's story, then there could be a decent chance of making a 2nd season.

#2. Lightyear (2022)

🍅 Rotten Tomatoes: 75%
👥 Audience Score
: 85%
🎭 Genres: Adventure, Action, Family
⭐️ Starring: Chris Evans, Keke Palmer, Taika Waititi

📺 Where to watch: In theaters!

While I've yet to see this one, it's great to see that it's been well-received by both the critics and audience.

Tim Allen, who voice the original Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story franchise, said this in an interview:

"It's just a whole new team that really have nothing to do with the first [Toy Story] movies… It's a wonderful story… I just wish there was a better connection."

Common question

  • "Why is Chris Evans voicing Buzz Lightyear and not Tim Allen?"

Tim's version of Buzz is more of a comic relief, best friend character, and usually not the most intelligent in the room.

In this film, Buzz is the hero and protagonist. He’s ambitious, serious, and driven. While he is also funny, it's not as much in a silly way.

Chris Evans, who comes from playing Captain America, has an ability to portray a stronger action hero that the movie needs.

But I'll have to watch the movie to see what I really think!
