Today is the day that The Walt Disney Company launches Disney+, the company’s new streaming service set to compete with Netflix and Hulu in the upcoming streaming wars. With content from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic, many people have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the service. It’s this high demand and anticipation that are causing problems at launch.
Those who already have subscribed to Disney+ have taken to Twitter to express their discontent with connectivity issues at launch. When trying to login to the website, an error message occurs. And when users finally log-in, some content seems to be missing, such as the various Star Wars films.
Here are some of the best tweets about the issues:
The month of October has come to an end, and what better way to celebrate the last day of the month than with the most-watched movie of the month, Hocus Pocus. This cult classic has been around for the past twenty-six years and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Once the month of October hits, Hocus Pocus is a must-watch. So, here are five of the funniest Hocus Pocus memes on the internet.
1. THE ACCURACY

This is so true! The world of Instagram automatically transforms from summer to spooky once the clock strikes midnight on October 1.
2. UNLIKELY PAIRING

Cher, Tye, and Dionne didn’t peg me for the Sanderson sisters, but now that they’re put together in this meme, I can’t unsee it. Although, Cher is definitely more like Winifred, and Tye is more of a Mary in my opinion.

This is most of us in the morning. Who has the ability to function until noon? Most of us can agree we are a total Billy, at least until we finish our first cup of coffee.

One of the best parts of the movie is when the Sanderson Sisters sing “I Put a Spell on You”. It is also the most random part of the movie because how could these three witches, who were just resurrected from the year 1693 know the lyrics to any song of the 20th century? And yet they have no idea what a bus is.

When you get older you start to realize how often they mentioned Max’s virginity. As a kid, the movie is all fun and the adult themes go over your head, but then ten years pass and the word virgin is on a constant loop for the next ninety minutes. We get it, Max is a virgin. Even at the end of the movie he remained one.
The freeform Marvel show Cloak & Dagger has been canceled. It only ran for two seasons and unfortunately was ended reportedly due to a large drop in viewership. While their own show is canceled, Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt will reprise their roles and make an appearance in the third season of The Runaways another hit Marvel show on Hulu.

Other shows based on Marvel properties on prime time television like Legion, on FX was canceled and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will rap up some time next year. There isn’t any word that these cancellations are a direct result of the creation of Disney +, the House of Mouse’s streaming service due to launch next month, but it wouldn’t be too far off to say. They have been slowly taking off Disney movies from Netflix. So get your wallets ready, I guess.
I was a fan of the show so I’m sad to see it go, but who knows maybe they’ll do more with the characters in the future.
Marvel’s Phase four is already underway and Taika Waititi will direct the fourth Thor movie titled, Thor: Love and Thunder.
Waititi promises that it will be bigger and better than Thor: Ragnarok. Waititi’s Thor is my favorite out of all the movies about the God of Thunder. It shows the characters in a different way, it’s absolutely hilarious and has a flare that only Waititi can bring to a film.

In the fourth film a lot of the cast will be returning. Waititi will reprise his role as fan favorite, Korg, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. There is also speculation that she will follow a story line from the comics and become Mighty Thor.
The movie won’t be out until 2021 but my anticipation is through the roof.
Star Wars may have started well before memes became our primary means of communication, but that hasn’t led to it’s neglect. Besides, with the prequels providing basically endless fuel, and some new screenshots from the sequels, we’ve got fertile ground for a rich meme harvest.
Please Never Describe Me

Besides being spectacularly shady, this is relatable. Not because my father was flammable, in so far as I know, but because we all know at least one person who can’t describe people to save their lives. Ironically, my dad is this way. He once described someone to me who he expected me to locate by saying that they had dark hair and maybe a tattoo. Maybe a tattoo? Anyone might have a tattoo. And what’s Luke supposed to do, put out a classified craigslist add looking for anyone flamable? Alright, I know it’s not canon, but it really should be.
It’s True And You Should Say It

He committed war crimes! He was a really bad person! Just wanting to peace out and live in the swamp is an incredibly understandable impulse, and I don’t think anyone questioned Yoda’s choices, but the prequels just HAD to explain, didn’t they? Plus, puppet Yoda was good. He was weird, sure, and I wouldn’t want him sitting on MY shoulders, but he was clearly a friend. CGI is an abomination. He looks like he’s going to glitch out of the screen and clip through my body, killing me instantly. Then he’ll probably do something weird like harvest my fingernails. No thanks.

Alright, alright, before you @me, I don’t actually think Jar Jar Binks is a sith lord. The guy couldn’t do even one thing. Who would recruit him? But when I bring up the theory, people get so mad! Sure, the prequels are awful (still don’t @me! It’s objective fact! I hate sand!), but the meta is outrageous. That’s why most of these memes are from the prequels. There’s really just an infinite number of things to unpack. The Darth Binks theory is great because it doesn’t make the prequels any better. They’re still ridiculous, convoluted, and poorly written (for starters). Nothing changes. Just… Jar Jar’s a sith. It makes you think.
The Chosen One

God I love Luke, but he was just the densest, most useless chosen one on his planet or any other. Right at his face! You think you’d have these problems with Leia? I’m still mad my girl didn’t ever get to use her powers for violence, though the space walk was obviously amazing. Whose idea was this? They’re like, look, we have two Skywalkers, either could fulfill the prophecy. One is a polished diplomat spy with the guts to lie to Darth Vader’s face and the courage to keep going after her planet explodes. The other is the slowest, most confused farm boy you’ve ever seen. The choice is easy!
Since Someone Found Everything Else

Seriously, they should be able to just slap it back on there. And when’s Rey going to lose a hand? At this point it’s just a rite of passage. I stan Rey hard, but if she doesn’t lose a hand, is she really even a Star Wars lead? Then again, maybe it’s just a Skywalker thing. Either way, can we talk about how everything that got lost in the first three movies is just around now? How did Maz get Luke’s lightsaber? How did Kylo get Vader’s helmet? Don’t ask questions! I mean, the Star Wars movies have always had so many plot holes, but these are weirdly back to back. She might as well have his hand too.
The Man is Swish

Look, I like prequel Obi Wan. We all like prequel Obi Wan. I’m just saying that prequel Obi Wan and original Obi-wan are two entirely different people. Original Obi Wan is not without humor, but he’s ultimately a serious, dedicated man. Prequel Obi Wan is sassy, impulsive, and has a dedication to fashion no number of years or friend murders could dull. Look at this man! You’re telling me he was just hanging out on Tatooine, in the hills, without a drop of hair gel? That whole planet couldn’t contain this swagger. No hate, but they’re entirely different people.
The Real Reason Anakin Turned

It’s not exactly a hot take, but the Jedi Order was messed up. I mean, for people with so many rules, they had approximately zero morals. Let’s tell people not to love anyone and then expect them to have compassion! Let’s break the Geneva Convention! Seriously, for such a supposedly great civilization, they were about 0% civilized. If he hadn’t murdered all those kids and become a space fascist, Anakin just would have been right. Honestly… down with the Jedi, and good for Luke burning all their manuals. You can be stabby without being authoritarian and colonialist and repressive. Get it together.
