The Mandalorian trailer New Star Wars show hits Disney Plus Nov 12

first_img 2 Oh boy! Oh boy!! #Mandalorian— Collingwood Jays 🇨🇦 (@CollingwoodJays) August 24, 2019 On Saturday, Favreau came on stage to give fans a first look: Whether you like the original or the prequels, “we’ve got something for everyone,” he said. Favreau previously revealed that the series would be set seven years after Return of the Jedi (so 23 years before The Force Awakens). At D23, the writer-director said the time period appealed to him because there’s no government, no law, and the world just degrades. What would it be like to be a bounty hunter during that period of lawlessness?  WOWThe Mandalorian looks as good as a Feature length Film— Jamie Moran (@JamieMoranUK) August 24, 2019 Tags Carl Weathers plays Greef Carga, a man who’s hired the Mandalorian for a job.”He’s kinda the head of this guild of bounty hunters,” Weathers said of his character during Star Wars Celebration, according to CNET’s Sean Keane. “The Mando is a guy who he figures can get the job done.”The Mandalorian also stars Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Omid Abtahi as Dr. Pershing, plus Nick Nolte, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow and Werner Herzog in unnamed roles, and the voice acting talents of Taika Waititi.The reaction to the new trailer was almost unanimously positive.  Star Wars: The Mandalorian is set to be the first Disney Plus original series to debut, and it has been a prime feature of the D23 Expo this weekend. The series stars Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian, and was written by Jon Favreau, who is also executive producer along with Dave Filoni (The Clone Wars) and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. All three shed light on how the production came to be, in addition to premiering the first official trailer for the upcoming Disney Plus show.  New details and footage were revealed Friday ahead of the Nov. 12 launch, and Disney teased us with a poster earlier in the day. Droid voice @TaikaWaititi says it’s VERY important to him to have droid representation on film in @themandalorian 😬 #StarWars— cait petrakovitz ➡️ D23 🙌🏽💃🏽 (@misscp) August 24, 2019 Disney Plus Disney Star Wars That MANDALORIAN TRAILER HAS ME SHOOK 🔥— Admiral Jackbar (Geeky Gator) (@The_GeekyGator) August 24, 2019 And that reaction is understandable. The spaghetti western tone is evident even in the trailer, and when you close with Werner Herzog in full Grizzly Man voiceover mode, it’s hard to hold back the shivers. If this trailer is anything to go by, we could be in for something pretty cool with The Mandalorian.The Disney D23 Expo runs through Sunday, Aug. 25.

Start streaming November 12. @TheMandalorian— Disney+ (@disneyplus) August 23, 2019 Speaking at Star Wars Celebration back in April, Pascal gave the lowdown on his gray-area bounty hunter. “He’s got a lot of Clint Eastwood in him,” the actor said, adding that he watched Sergio Leone and Akira Kurosawa movies to prepare. 50 Photos Comments Share your voice 2019 TV shows you can’t miss Yo I am beyond pumped for this.

Sneak Preview Beatles Abbey Road 50th Anniversary Edition Features Dazzling Sound Unreleased

first_imgThe Beatles’ body of work has been so worshipped, scrutinized and dissected that 50 years later, one could wonder what’s left to discover. After all, how much more can one say about “Abbey Road”? It’s arguably the greatest album by the greatest group of all time, and is one of the premiere artistic statements of its era. And as the final album the Beatles made together — it was recorded after “Let It Be” but released before  — it was created in a spirit of pre-breakup détente: The Beatles knew they were splitting up, so they made one last big effort for the team, and consequently, “Abbey Road” has none of the tension and contentiousness of “The White Album” and “Let It Be.” It’s all harmony, in every sense of the word.Although the Beatles’ catalog has already been revisited several times — first on CD in the ‘80s, then the “Anthology” rarities series in the ‘90s, then in meticulously remastered stereo editions in the ‘00s, then in mono, and now in 50th anniversary editions — each one has revealed tantalizing surprises for longtime fans.

Since the “Abbey Road” sessions overlapped with those of “Let It Be” — which was recorded before, but released after, “Abbey Road” — some other contemporaneous recordings will be included in that anniversary reissue, which has not been officially announced, but everyone knows is getting the 50th anniversary treatment next year.But in the meantime, the “Abbey Road” anniversary edition provides some wonderful surprises, even for those who have heard the album hundreds of times.Abbey Road Anniversary EditionTracklistsSUPER DELUXE [3CD+1Blu-ray set; digital audio collection]CD ONE: 2019 Stereo MixCome TogetherSomethingMaxwell’s Silver HammerOh!

The remixes unveil many previously hidden elements in the songs — mostly subtle ones, but exciting to fans all the same — and just two of the outtakes were previously released, and in slightly different versions.The full tracklist appears below and granular details of the set can be found here, but all anyone who’s read this far will care about is what it sounds like — and, speaking as someone who has heard every second of this album hundreds of times since the age of 6, it sounds amazing.Most of the new remix of the album was played, along with parts of the special “Atmos” mix — and hearing it over the mind-blowing sound system at the Dolby 24 Screening Room in New York is a privileged setting that won’t be recreated in most mortals’ homes. With that caveat, it sounds stunning: The remix places the listener in the center of the music, with the so-familiar elements of the Beatles’ sound — the breathtaking vocal harmonies, the snarling electric guitars, Ringo’s cascading drum rolls and Paul McCartney’s astonishing bass playing — moving from one speaker to the next fluidly.“Abbey Road” is arguably the most cleanly produced and arranged Beatles album, and the new remix places it in dramatic relief: The vocals on “Because” and the sweeping strings on “Something” (the latter of which were played in isolation during this session) have never sounded so full and pristine.The unreleased material is equally fascinating. Aired during this session was a stunning, extended early version of John Lennon’s “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” that finds the group edging into noise-rock, as guest keyboardist Billy Preston wails away on the organ. Also played was an earlier take of “Octopus’ Garden,” close to the final but featuring some priceless studio banter between the soon-to-be-former bandmates. When the take breaks down, Lennon jokes to Ringo, “I thought you were about to sing ‘In an octopus’ garden with John,” to laughter. The segment ends with Ringo joking about the reason the take broke down: “Maybe I came in too early … or maybe you did!” 2019 Stereo Mix Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
