One Day At A Time is delightful, insightful, thought provoking, powerful and entertaining

Rita Moreno and Justina Machado reading script from Norman Lear show produced by Netflix ©Mario J. Novoa # netflix 's  # OneDayAtATime  is delightful, insightful, thought provoking, powerful and entertaining...covering a spectrum of the  # LatinX  American experience. When I first heard about the show I was skeptical, but now that I've experienced it, I highly recommend it.  On a side note, this drone was shooting footage which captured some cool shots and Rita's improvisational humor.  I  had a chance to hear  # RitaMoreno  and  # JustinaMachado  at the  # NALIP  Media Summit this past summer, and enjoyed listening to their banter about the making of the show.  A much needed show in an era of polarizing extremes, this show gives us humor and hope. # Love. Hoping for season 2 @TheRitaMoreno @JustinaMachado  # bingeworthy  #netflix @nalip_org.  @onedayatatimecomedy Rita Moreno and Justina Machado reading script from Norman Lear sh

When Tezuka Osamu met Walt Disney

“I admire Walt Disney, I am charmed by Walt Disney, and I decided my career inspired by Walt Disney. And I met him in New York, or, I should say, I just walked past him. On the opening day of New York World’s Fair, I was lucky enough to get a chance to talk to him. I came across him leaving the stage just after delivering the speech.  I got nervous but somehow introduced myself to him.    ‘I am a head of a Japanese animation studio.’ ‘Nice to have you here.’ ‘I am the one who made Astro Boy.’ ‘Really? I know Astro Boy. I saw the work in Los Angeles. It’s a great work.” ‘Thank you very much. My staff would be honored. Well, may I have your comment about the work?’ ‘It’s a very interesting Sci-Fi story. Future children are looking toward the space. So I, myself, think about making Sci Fi, too.  If you have time, visit me in Burbank.’  (by Tezuka Osamu) Li

Obi-Wan & Saw Gerrera Returns in Star Wars Rebels

via Gizmodo Obi-Wan has been on Rebels before, but as his younger incarnation, portrayed in the films by Ewan McGregor. This is the first time the Alec Guinness-era version of Kenobi will appear in animation. And the reason for his debut is almost as momentous: Darth Maul is finally going to get the rematch he’s been clamoring for since a much younger Kenobi cut his body in two at the end of The Phantom Menace . However, I’d imagine that fight won’t happen until the season finale later in the year. Before that, there’s a whole lot of other great stuff going on: Sabine seems to be embracing the Force a bit, rocking the Darksaber and trying to recruit her fellow Mandalorians; Mon Mothma makes an appearance, along with fellow Rebel leader General Dodonna; the TIE Defender is finally here; Thrawn and Tarkin still seem to have a big part to play; and, of course, what is Ezra’s connection with Kenobi and his warning? What isn’t here in this trailer is any hint that we’ll see
