Original Content podcast: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ returns for a messy-but-delightful second season

The first season of “The Umbrella Academy” had its flaws, but empathetic portrayals of its seven superhero siblings (all adults bearing the emotional scars of an upbringing under their strict adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves) more than made up for its meandering plot. In season two, which recently launched on Netflix, the Umbrella Academy has been transported to Dallas in the early 1960s, where the Hargreeves must once again try to repair their familial bonds while also averting a nuclear ...

Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Tyler Mitchell to talk Imagine Impact at Disrupt 2020

The world is changing quickly. It seems to be growing more complicated by the minute. Throughout the centuries, humans have used storytelling to make sense of the world around them. That is perhaps more true today than it ever was, as we have access to more stories (via the internet) than we ever have in history. But with this proliferation, it’s critical that the very best storytellers — a diverse group of storytellers — have access to the broadest audiences. Imagine Impact, a content accelerat...

‘Mulan’ is coming to Disney+ on September 4, for an additional price of $29.99

Those wondering whether The Walt Disney Company would eventually give up on a traditional theatrical release for “Mulan” now have their answer. While the coronavirus pandemic prompted Disney to accelerate the streaming release of some movies like Pixar’s “Onward,” and to send certain lower-profile movies like “Artemis Fowl” straight to Disney+, until now the company has chosen to delay its bigger releases like “Mulan” and “Black Widow.” In fact, “Mulan” and Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” were ex...

Like they joke-shaped hole in the middle of this show, but then didn’t put a joke in it.What we’re talking about here, of course, is the situation with Maggie Naird (Lisa Kudro...
