While exploring their newfound abilities in the nearby forests and playgrounds, their innocent play takes a dark turn and strange things begin to happen.Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter called the film "low-tech, high-tension", writing that "The lonely, uncanny and sometimes unthinkingly violent world of childhood is explored with chilling candour and exceptional skill". Jessica Kiang of Variety praised the performances of the child actors as well as the film's atmosphere, calling the film "both a satisfying genre exercise and a minute observation of the process by which young children acquire morality."SPECIAL GUEST: Becca (Ross's long-suffering wife) Get bonus content on PatreonSupport this show http://supporter.acast.com/general-witchfinders.

    As we gear up for the Booking Magnet LIVE 2022 Annual Actors Conference, I'm pleased to introduce you to Gail Bean. Enjoy this interview and be sure to connect with us on social media to share your takeaways. Xo! - Christine Connect with Gail Bean here: Instagram- gail__bean About Gail… Gail Bean is a television and film actress currently starring as ‘Wanda Bell,' an around the way girl turned drug addict in FX''s hit series “SNOWFALL.” Created by the late great John Singleton, set in south central Los Angeles, this period piece follows true events of the United States government ushering crack cocaine in the black communities and fostering the demise of a people. Wanda is the fun, upbeat girlfriend of top drug dealer, Leon. Having such close proximity to the rock, she eventually falls prey and grapples with who she was versus who she has become. “SNOWFALL” just aired it's fourth season & was recently renewed for a fifth. Born in St. Louis, MS to a school teacher and professional football coach, Bean was raised to love and appreciate the arts at an early age. At age 3, her family moved to Atlanta, GA and it was there that her parents enrolled Bean in ballet, art and theater classes to cultivate her passion. After enrolling in acting courses for several years, it was her mentor, Rodney Perry, that encouraged Bean to make the transition to Los Angeles to pursue a serious career in acting. In 2014, Bean starred in DUFFLE, a short-film by indie filmmaker Eric Rhea that explores the story of a young unemployed father-to-be struggling to follow the right path when faced with two options, while under pressure to provide for his long-time girlfriend (Bean) and their unborn child. In 2015, the Atlanta native starred in Kris Swanberg's Sundance hit, UNEXPECTED, opposite Cobie Smulders. Bean stirred headlines in 2015 with Kris Swanberg's Sundance film festival hit UNEXPECTED. The young star was listed on Hollywood Reporter as the ‘Top 10 Next Generation' Breakout Stars of Sundance. Since her breakout role, Bean has landed roles in the James Gunn horror thriller, 'The Belko Experiment' (2016) which explored a survival of the strongest experiment when employees learn that they are pawns in a deadly game and have to stick together to remain alive. One of Bean's most memorable television roles is where she portrays the controversial character of Rasheeda in Issa Rae's hit HBO series “Insecure.” Bean's television credits also includes NBC's “Chicago PD,” the FX Emmy Award winning series “Atlanta,” and Comedy Central's “Detroiters.” Committed to using her platform to empower and educate, Bean is actively involved in philanthropic programs that provide arts resources to support disenfranchised communities for healing and upliftment. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an active supporter and continues to be a staunch advocate for community service, theater programs and art projects that are centered upon helping children and young adults.

This is Pete Fletzer and welcome to Disturbances in the Force. www.ATGcast.comPatreon.com/ATGcast@ATGcastYouTube.com/ATGcast(c) 2022 Pete in the Seat StudionsSo Let's get to it.

1. D23, the annual Disney Fan Expo, will take place later this year at the Anaheim Convention Center – the same location as Star Wars Celebration a few weeks ago. The event features experiences, exclusive merch and inside looks at all things Disney – which of course includes the Star Wars franchise. On Saturday September 10th, D23 will feature a panel that includes both Marvel and Lucasfilm. The official announcement states QUOTE “Filmmakers, celebrity talent, and surprise guests will join representatives from Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm, among others, onstage to showcase theatrical and Disney+ titles. Going behind the scenes of these studios' highly anticipated films, specials, and series, attendees will see exclusive footage and be among the first to learn what else is in the works.” While there is no specific mention of what will be shown, D23 has, in the past, been the place where projects such as the Obi-Wan Kenobi series have been announced. D23 takes place September 9th through the 11th2. YouTube channel DisInsider dropped some rumored news this week regarding the upcoming Disney plus Star Wars series Acolyte. Derek Cornell of the site claims that some Star Wars Legends characters could be introduced into live action on the Leslye Hedland helmed show. He claims that Darth Bane, Malak, Revan and Nihilus could make an appearance in the yet to shot series. He also claimed that the DisneyLand and DisneyWorld Galaxy's Edge Location – the Planet Batuu – could be making an appearance in an upcoming show as well. He speculated it could be the newly announced Skeleton Crew or the Ahsoka series. There are no official Lucasfilm statements on any of these rumors at this time.3. The cast of the Mandalorian spoke to Entertainment Tonight this week and they gave some indication that the third season of the show will be expanding the universe as well as taking on a more dramatic tone. Carl Weathers, who plays Greef Karga and is also directing an episode in season 3, said “it has a lot more heft, it's so dense but full of character. [The new episodes] had a lot more opportunity for depth. Each of these characters has so much story within their own personal story. As an audience, you get to see just little glimmers of things that we didn't realize about them.” Katee Sackoff, aka Bo Katan said, ““She's not done. [Bo-Katan refusing the darksaber] makes us question, it makes her question, ‘What's different? Why not now?' And that's important. She's still on that journey, you know, from the first time that we met her when she was very young and impressionable. And she's been continuing to evolve and grow and figure out who she is.” You can find the full article on ET.com. The Mandalorian Season 3 drops in February 2023.4. The marketing campaign for the Obi-Wan Kenobi show continued this week with another edition of Obi-Wan Wednesdays. Each week from now through June 29, Star Wars dot com will feature new products inspired by the DisneyPlus series. This week, they unveiled a funko pop of Tala Durith, the Imperial officer turned Jedi trafficker. Hasbro dropped 5 new Retro series 3 point 7 5 inch action figures designed to capture the style of the original 70s and 80s toys. They include Obi-Wan, the droid Ned B, the Grand Inquisitor, Darth Vader and the Fifth  brother. Lego ALSO unveiled a new playset that recreates the duel between Vader and Obi-Wan on Mapuzo from Part 3 of the series. It includes minifigs of Kenobi, Vader, Ned B and Tala. Finally, a plush version of Leia's droid companion, LO-LA is available for pre-order by Mattel. Visit ObiWanWednesdays.com for these items and previous merchandise that is now available.5. Obi-Wan Kenobi series writer Joby Harold spoke to the Hollywood Reporter earlier this week and he shared some insight to Moses Ingram's character, the third sister, aka Reva. He told THR QUOTE: “I love that Reva is this mystery box, so I try to speak to her as little as possible, and I'm going to keep it that way. But the notion of having a character that we don't know on a legacy show where we do know everything and everybody is part of the fun of the show. So the less said about her, the better, considering there are very few people and places where you don't know what's happening.” Part 5 of Obi-Wan Kenobi drops Wednesday, June 15 on Disney plus Thanks for listening and may the force be with you! https://www.etonline.com/the-mandalorian-cast-teases-dark-and-even-better-season-3-coming-in-2023-exclusive-185232

    Episode SummaryAnother critical and commercial success of the Disney Renaissance, The Lion King (1994) was a beast at the box office and on home video. It was also the first animated Disney animated film set in Africa. Despite (relatively) diverse casting and the incorporation of authentic African music, there's still plenty of racism to discuss, with some homophobia and questionable political commentary thrown in! Episode BibliographyBBC NEWS | Entertainment | Disney settles Lion song dispute.

In the first theme, The role of women in family business, we looked at the differences and challenges associated with women's varying roles within their families and businesses. We also explore the gender differences that women face in relation to treatment and opportunities within the family business as well as the role mentors—both male and female—play in advancing women within family businesses,” KPMG said. The full study is worth a read, and is available here:https://assets.kpmg/content/dam/kpmg/sa/pdf/2022/the-power-of-women-in-family-business.pdf***19:21 - The 966 talks with Jack Fowler, director at the global management consulting firm YCP Solidiance and co-author of a new report on Saudi Arabia's construction industry, 'Partnering for Success in Saudi Arabia Construction.'The report highlights Key Drivers for Saudi Arabia's Development as well as challenges, risks, and opportunities of doing business in Saudi Arabia. ***1:08:44 - Yallah!

The article was written  by  on April 13, 2021   Susan shares the history over the last 40 years of how several books have attempted to address the issue of whether a student should follow their passions. Mark and Susan give their take on the article.   (55:56) Questions from a listener-I have a college sophomore and a high school senior so I have gone through the process twice - it is exhausting!     I have two questions: 1) In searching for colleges, we looked at rankings depending on what the student's area of study was  (business, film, animation, international relations, etc.) The rankings we found were Poets & Quants Undergrad, Hollywood Reporter,  Animation Review, and Foreign Policy.   I had heard about US News, but not the other rankings - how can we determine if they are truly industry valid rankings? I know rankings don't dictate success, but the search has to start somewhere, and it is just one more data point.   2) It was very difficult and at times impossible to find acceptance rates for a specific school within a university.  For example - NYU Tisch, LMU Film & TV, Villanova undergrad business, and Georgetown SFS. Is there a way to find out? The acceptance rate for each school/program can vary greatly from the whole of the university.  Thank you so much!!      Maria from Pennsylvania   (01:17:17) Interview-Rod Skinner, the Dean of College Counseling at Milton Academy-Topic "Why is it so much harder to get into a selective college these days"- (Part 3 of 3)   Preview-Part 3/3   One means of getting people off a fixation with one school What parent can do to help their kids have positive mental health while going through the college process The importance of parents having this one skill when working with their kids More great advice for parents is shared Rod recommends a book and shares an amazing quote The importance of relationships with parents The lightning round, Rod goes on the hotseat Sage wisdom for college counselors, students and parents     (01:27:37) Our recommended resource for episode 227 is the website ctas.substack.com.

    Originally from Philadelphia, David attended that city's “Fame” high school, Creative And Performing Arts, where his classmates included QuestLove and Boyz II Men. He then graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York, and worked as a graphic designer for ad agencies, designed book covers, movie posters, and indie film titles.He impulsively moved to Los Angeles in 2000 and became a stand-up comic for a while, performing at The Improv, The Vancouver Comedy Festival, and in sketches on “The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson” and “The Showbiz Show with David Spade”. But he tired of comedy clubs after a few years and focused on writing instead. In 2006, his “Will & Grace” spec made it to the semi-finals of the Warner Bros. Comedy Workshop.Switching to drama, he optioned the book “Minamata” (and the life rights of the author), about the experiences of journalist W. Eugene Smith photographing mercury poisoning victims in Japan. He wrote the screenplay in six weeks, and it got him a literary manager. Then Johnny Depp's company came on board to produce with Depp himself as the star. Filming on MINAMATA completed in the Spring of '19, with an expected release in Fall 2021. “Minamata” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2020 and has since been picked up by Samuel Goldwyn Films for domestic distribution. It also stars Bill Nighy, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tadanobu Asano, and the singer Katherine Jenkins.His follow up, DREAMERS (based on the book John Lennon Vs. The US), is about John Lennon's immigration battle with the Nixon administration which legally set the stage (many years later) for DACA/The Dream Act. David was recently hired by the director of “Minamata”, Andrew Levitas, to rewrite a script about the two brothers who owned Adidas and Puma and who battled each other for decades. That project, “Adidas V Puma”, is currently out to actors and mentioned in “The Hollywood Reporter” in early March 2021.
