Episodes of Rick and Morty, Friends, Big Bang Theory licensing through 2028

Episodes of Rick and Morty, Friends, Big Bang Theory licensing through 2028

If you're looking for episodes of Rick and Morty in the near future, you won't be amongst the unlucky masses with just one option. If you're looking for a show like The Office, for example, you've likely been watching on Netflix for the past few years - but soon you'll have to head elsewhere. The same is true of many Disney TV shows and movies, including Marvel Comics movies and Star Wars movies - all of which are now on Disney+. But Cartoon Network, the folks who run the license show when it comes to Rick and Morty, do not seem to be taking the bait when it comes to the whole "exclusive" deal other networks are attempting to score.

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

You cannot buy an officially-licensed Baby Yoda plush toy in time for Christmas 2019. That's by design... sort of. As Lucasfilm product licensing SVP Paul Southern said today, "It was important to us that the reveal of the new character, the Child, be a special moment for fans, and we could not be more thrilled with the response." Lucasfilm and Disney felt it was so extremely important to keep Baby Yoda a secret that they did not include imagery or descriptions of the character in the first wave of license-ready media for manufacturers. As far as they knew - no such character would even exist!

The Mandalorian is still in “A New Hope” mode

The Mandalorian is still in “A New Hope” mode

Here at the start of December of 2019, we've seen 4 full episodes of the Star Wars streaming live action show The Mandalorian. It started out slow, then it kept on going slow, and it's remained relatively slow through the last couple episodes. This show isn't the bombastic spectacle to which we've grown accustomed with Star Wars movies and cartoons - this is something different entirely.

Four things EA is doing right with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launched this week and what a relief it was.

Will EA learn anything from the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?

Will EA learn anything from the success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?

I’ve been a gamer for many years, just as EA has been a games publisher for many years. Lately, the two of us haven’t really seen eye-to-eye. By looking around the internet, I get the feeling that’s true for a lot of folks, who all complain about EA’s overbearing commitment to live service games and the pursuit of profits over anything else. Still, many of EA’s games seem to sell really well, particularly its various sports games, which all appear at least somewhat insulated from the outrage surrounding loot boxes and microtransactions in games that cost $60 up front.
