Piercing Ken Thoughts: In the Special Look clip I mentioned that I was not sure when I would end up seeing this based on my no longer being a subscriber to Disney+. Maybe when the second season of “The Mandalorian” rolls around I will look into it again but who knows. The film did look like a lot of fun and with so many novels to choose from in the characters history, this could very well spark some reading in your household. What do you folks with the wee ones While this film looks like fun, I don’t currently subscribe to the Disney+ service. I gave it a whirl to watch “The Mandalorian” which ran its course for the time being and since I own almost all of the Disney films I need on DVD along with all the Marvel and Star Wars stuff I don’t currently need it. What did you think about the “Special Look”? Will you be looking to subscribe to this service and help keep your family occupied during this crazy time ? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time around. Stay safe out there.
