Starting this Christmas, every Christmas but one until 2027 will have either an Avatar sequel or a Star Wars sequel. We discuss being force-fed these Disney owned properties like foie gras geese.

And some other stuff, including the Canadian movie Ordinary Days, and Mena Massoud, the actor who’s playing the title role in Disney’s new Aladdin .
