These Australian Devices Will Be Able To Stream Disney+

  These Australian Devices Will Be Able To Stream Disney+ Disney+ is just days from launching in Australia and its looking set to seriously shake up the local streaming scene. But some in other countries have complained of the service not working on specific devices. Here are the devices confirmed to be able to stream all your Disney classics and soon-to-be faves. A Linux developer in the Netherlands first spotted troubles with Disney+ and after little digging, tech site Tweakers realised it was due to the streaming service's use of WideVine, digital rights management service.

(Image: Disney/Lucasfilm) Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is at the cutting edge (heh) of reality imitating fiction, with Disney spending massive sums of money on converting a little pocket of its park to looking, feeling, tasting, and smelling like it’s really a part of the Star Wars universe, only with many more opportunities to give Disney your money.

But this next endeavour, as reported by TheForce.net, is taking things to a whole ‘nother level. What is Disney doing? They are currently testing two X-Wing drones the size of cars to, (emphasis mine), “fly over the land during a one-time media event scheduled for December.” It’s worth noting that these are one-time only experiments, for a media event, and these specific devices will probably not be seen by the public.

Characters in 'The Crown' and the actors who played them

  Characters in 'The Crown' and the actors who played them As season three of 'The Crown' premieres on Nov. 17, we take a look at the actors who are playing the characters and their royal real-life counterparts.

But just. Let me reiterate. These are flying, car-sized drones shaped like X-Wings. Which basically just means they’re real-life X-Wings. That fly. In the sky. Yeah, sure, that’s not space, but it’s something.

Oh, here’s a picture of the in-progress drones, courtesy of MickeyBlog:

It’s making me excited for the second version of Galaxy’s Edge, which will probably just involve getting shot by lasers in space.

A new "Planet of the Apes" movie is in the works at Disney and Fox in what will be the first feature in the franchise since Disney acquired Fox earlier this year. And the studio has tapped Wes Ball, the director of "The Maze Runner," to develop and direct the new film, and individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap. The project is described as in the early development stages, and it's not clear whether this will be a continuation of the trilogy that recently concluded with Matt Reeves' 2017 "War for the Planet of the Apes," or whether it's a full reboot or a separate standalone film.
