When Disney came out Star Wars: The awakening of the force in 2015, his 30-year leap of Return of the jedi introduced a lot of new characters and mysteries to the franchise. One of them was the way Ben Solo and Leia Organa turned to the dark side to become Kylo Ren. Later this year, Marvel Comics will explore part of this story with a new comic mini-series: The rise of Kylo Ren.
Lucasfilm announced the four-issue comic book series at the Lucasfilm publishing group yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con. Charles Soule, the writer behind Marvel & # 39; s dark Vador and Poe Dameron BD, will write the series.
As I just announced, I'm writing THE RISE OF KYLO REN – a series of limited edition comics launched in December just before Episode IX.
You know the only story everyone wants to see, about Kylo and the Knights of Ren? That's it.

The comic book series will be released in stores in December, just in time for the next edition. Skywalker climb, who teased some revelations in the story of Kylo Ren. according to Vanity Fair, the movie will bring back the Knights of Ren – Kylo Ren's companions who made the shortest number of cameos in The force awakens, but did not show up at The last Jedi. Vanity Fair says they will bring "an element of chaos to the war between the Resistance and the First Order", but we do not know much about their role in the great story.
In The force awakens, we learned that Kylo Ren was Han and Leia, and that I destroyed Luke Skywalker's young Jedi Academy after falling on the dark side. We learned a little more in The last Jedi – that Luke, in a moment of weakness, was planning to kill his nephew when he felt the darkness grow in him, sending him into his new person. Let's hope that the series will add to what we know about Ben Solo's transformation into Kylo Ren.
The Lucasfilm Publishing Panel unveiled some additional titles and provided you also look at some books previously announced: Dooku: Lost Jedi, a first audio title written by Cavan Scott, will receive a print edition this fall, while George Mann will write a style book Grimms Fairy Tales in the Star Wars universe.
Here we see the first big difference. Creating a server for your group of friends in Discord is very simple and does not take more than a few seconds. However, in the case of TeamSpeak, you will need a computer on which to install the server software and an Internet connection powerful enough to handle all the traffic it generates (downhill and uphill). , sending and receiving data).
It is also important to note that the computer on which it is installed must always be turned on for members to connect. It is therefore strongly recommended to proceed with the installation on a dedicated server or a VPS server, for the cost involved.
Despite the aforementioned disadvantages, it is also important to mention that this gives more control over the serverbecause it does not depend on a company that can make completely one-sided decisions that are not appropriate for the community you are creating around the server.
One of the things that everyone seems to agree on is that the The audio quality offered by TeamSpeak is superior to discord. This does not mean that Discord is bad, but that of his main competitor is superior. This may not be a problem if you are going to use the server during your games, but it may be important for other uses and maybe that's why companies like NASA or Boeing use to perform some of their internal communications.
Ease of use and user interface They are also regular critics on both platforms. Most users complain that TeamSpeak's design is ugly and a bit complicated to understand. Discord is easier, easier to use and understand.
In my opinion, I think the reason for these criticisms is given by the type of design used in each. Discord is a service born in 2015, in full development of mobile applications and baby design of these. In contrast, TeamSpeak was born in 2001 and, although it has evolved a lot in all these years, there is still a drawing that can be complex and obsolete compared to other options.
The price of both services It is also an important point that differentiates the two services. In the case of TeamSpeak, up to 32 simultaneous users are completely free, but if you need to be able to host more players, you need to purchase a license that starts at $ 55 to accommodate up to 64 users and whose price and the number of users increases. Of course, in all cases, we must add the cost of the dedicated server, the VPS server or the national server used for its installation.
However, Discord is completely free, does not limit the number of users and it is not necessary to have hardware to host it. Instead, it offers Nitro and Nitro Classic, packs that allow you to do more things in chats and, in the case of the Nitro pack, access to many different games.
Two different ways to monetize the tools and that can decant the scales towards Discord thanks to the model freemium, with which the users can use all without limits and if they want functions that everybody can not pay. In the case of TeamSpeak, the server administrator must still pay the license and will have to pay more and more money if his community expands and needs to serve more users.
The use of robots to add music, games and other functions to the discussions is present on both platforms, but the variety and quality of options available for Discord are much greater. If you want some examples, you can browse our compilation with the best robots for Discord.
Deciding between one platform or another is a very personal decision. Looking for the best possible audio quality and have more control over the server? Then TeamSpeak is your option. Are you looking for something fast to configure even if you lose audio quality? If that is the case, the discord should be your choice.
In honor of the release of The Lion King (2019), we returned to the sparse memory of the new obsession imagined by Disney to research what projects were worth and not worth all the time, effort and nostalgia.
FYI: Movies away, like Mary Poppins is back (2018), and remakes of Disney classics that were largely already live-action, like Pete's Dragon (2016), were excluded. Enjoy!
At first glance, filmmaker Tim Burton and author Lewis Carroll look like a match of paradise. Unfortunately, as both of Burton Alice Illustrated films, this is really not the case.
Interminably cynical, Burton Alice in Wonderland transforms a beloved adventure so far into a rabbit terrier into a tale of Joan of Arc that sucks all the pleasure of a world of talking cats. The stars Mia Wasikowska, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway and Johnny Depp offer generally excellent performances, without however marveling the comic strips by adhering to the bitter tone of the film.
Although the costumes and the artistic direction awarded at the Oscars are quite pleasant, Alice in Wonderland remains an excellent example of why some classics are best left alone.
Tim Burton's sequel Alice in Wonderland ranks higher on our list, if only because it doubles its boring qualities with remarkable bravery.
With a vibrant color palette, Alice through the mirror Try to be more than your predecessor – but when you travel and make a strange wink at the sexist medical practices of Victorian England, everything is like being crazy.
If the disappointing box office of the film was due to scandal Around his star Johnny Depp or his generally unbearable nature is hard to say. Anyway, Alice through the mirror was a failure for both Disney and his audience.
Tim Burton takes Dumbo was not as exhausting as his two Alice in Wonderland projects, but he was likewise self-indulgent.
A host of persistent photos of the adorable baby Dumbo moaning for his mother and bursting out big tears the size of an elephant, Dumbo (2019) plays more like an ASPCA campaign from the vaudeville era than a children's movie. As Angie Han from Mashable Note that it is not that the kindness of Dumbo is a problem in itself, but it is often the impression of being abused in a film without having to do anything else.
Yes, some parts of this uneven remake – namely all the schtick of Michael Keaton and Colin Farrell-ness of everything – are quite pleasant. Unfortunately, overall, the project failed to prove that the refurbishment of a 77-year-old classic was worth the effort.
Technically speaking, Christopher Robin is a sequel to Disney's original Winnie the Pooh movies – not a remake of them. But this is the first time that busy residents of Hundred Acre Wood are receiving live action treatment and we are allowing them to feature (albeit a low spot) in our rankings.
A less magical Hook scam Christopher Robin follows the return of an adult Christopher to his fantasies of childhood. Star Ewan McGregor does his best to keep the wobbly story on track, but it's the incomparable Winnie, voiced by Jim Cummings, who steals the show.
Delivering a dazzling dialogue of laughter with nostalgic perfection, Pooh is exactly what you remembered. It's the saving grace of a film that often feels forced – even to the point that we look Christopher Robin again, if only to play another round of "Say what you see".
The beauty and the Beast just try a little too hard.
Featuring the exceptional cast of Emma Watson, this remake of 2017 attempts to tell this "tale of the past" with tons of backstory, new characters, a cast of stars, a kind of genre (not the all) LGBTQ including subplotand a unique rich visual style, unlike any Disney princess movie.
Unfortunately, these many efforts tend to blur the story of Beauty and the Beast rather than elevate it. There are times when the current fantasy is worth the price of entry – namely Watson's staircase appearance in what is a yellow version of the dress worn by Hermione Granger at the Christmas ball . But overall, this is not particularly memorable.
With an operating time greater than two hours, The beauty and the Beast (2017) is undoubtedly more of the story that you come to know and love. But, like Mashable's Angie Han Explainit does not make it more magical.
When images of a nauseating Will Smith blue appeared on the Web in February, we feared the worst. But, as it turns out, Aladdin (2019) is not so bad.
While genius has remained a low point in the final form of the film, the stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott – both found through an international casting search – are breathtaking as Disney's unlikely unlikely couple. Nail each nuance of character with a few definite improvements written for Jasmine of Scott, these two characters go through the film as many traps as they can.
Unfortunately, the under-sought musical numbers in the film prevent the duo from reaching its true grandeur. Reflecting on Aladdinlack of dance numbers worthy of Bollywood, Masa Proma Khosla "It is disappointing to see that, in an attempt to pay tribute to the traditions of oriental dance, Aladdin chose to go on the So you think you can dance and mitigate these forms of art until the West recognizes them already. "
Better than expected, but still not as good as the original, Aladdin is good – but not the Agrabah royalty.
The Lion King is not bad in itself, but it is a struggle to overcome one's fear of failure.
A constantly faithful reconstruction of the masterpiece of 1994, that of Jon Favreau on the Saharian plateau Hamlet s' hangs at its source – offering only the superb photorealistic animation style as justification for its creation.
Yes, the world of digitally rendered Pride Lands is a technical triumph and the voice played by its starred actors is largely enjoyable. But like Mashable's Angie Han written"None of this comes down to anything new or vital, the remake does not deepen our understanding of these characters, this story, this world, significantly."
Without a doubt the most tedious of the films on this list, The Lion King cherishes the kings who preceded him like no other, but fails to win a throne of his own making.
When the time has come for Disney to repeat the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty, They did not just do everything live. Instead, they told the story from the point of view of its iconic villain – a decision that has re-imagined one of Disney's best to date.
Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning play the roles of Maleficent and Aurora, but their characters still stand between them, but for far more complicated reasons than it seemed there. Oozing with style, Maleficent creates a dark world that is similar to the realm seen in the original Sleeping Beautybut with a dark texture and a slippery personality all its own.
Part of the sequel, a remake party, this Disney tour is both enjoyable as a standalone and as an extension of the original animation. And this suite, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil? We could not be more ready for that.
Many advocates of Disney's live-action remake have argued that re-creating classic movies can help introduce older stories to new audiences. Jungle book is the one who actually does that.
Director Jon Favreau has managed to turn one of Disney's least-known commodity products into a high-end selection for 2016 kids, realizing the adventure of the Mowgli jungle in its most cinematic . Telling the story of a child befriending animals in the real world gave him the impression of being both more thoughtful, more terrifying and more adventurous.
Neel Sethi shines in the role of the young hero, while Idris Elba and Bill Murray shine in the role of Shere Khan and Baloo. It took a second to animate all this animal fur, The jungle Book is a new kind of classic
Published in 1956, Dodie Smith's timeless story about fleeing puppies has always been endearing, but Disney's live-action campy remake has made it a full-fledged movie. event.
Featuring the fabulous fabulous Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil, this 101 Dalmatians Transplanting the characters from the original animated feature into a stylish world of London madness. De Vil, now a world-renowned fashionista, tackles every scene with a sinister force, her superb black and white suit almost as iconic as her.
More sensitive to the comic style of the late 90s, this remake is struggling to hold up today while the second half returns to a heavy mess. But Close, whose role as De Vil earned him a Golden Globe nomination, more than makes up for his outstanding line deliveries.
Worth the detour, 101 Dalmatians (1996) is a proof of concept that Disney animated remakes can work.
Narrated and narrated by countless studios and creators, the story of Cinderella's encounter with Prince Charming at the ball is as classic as possible. So it's no wonder this is the only live remake that Disney has managed to do completely.
With Lily James, Cate Blanchett and Richard Madden, Cinderella (2015) honors the masterfully created images of the original film – including an exquisite rendering of this sky blue shirt – while expanding the central plot and characters to make the fantasy more heartfelt.
Fill a fairy tale with real people, Cinderella is all that one can wish for a dream reinvented child. If only he came with glass slippers.

Among these possible integration problems, some experts wonder if the properties of Tor will be preserved or what would be the complete integration of the two models. With everything and with, just a few days ago and at a meeting of the Tor team, plans to create a "Super Private" browsing mode in Firefox have changed slightly, so that the new proposal, at least initially, is to create an extension that can be called "Tor Mode" in the own Mozilla browser.
So and mainly because of the complexity of the integration Tor directly on Firefox, Mozilla and the Tor team are studying the use of an extension to measure performance impact before integrating it fully into the database. code of the Navigator as such. Therefore, an idea was originally presented to Firefox to incorporate the new "Tor Mode" that would be used to pave the way, all in the form of a complement which would be installed in the browser.
Keep in mind that initially this new extension would not be added by default to the program, but would be an item that users could download from the company's official store to add to the program. software an activation buttonTor Mode"Or something similar. The system would allow users to experience what could be a complete integration with Tor going through Internet with its usual program, which would also make it possible to know the interest of the general public for this development.
It should be noted that this add-on would configure the browser to use Tor as a proxy and would use other features very similar to the default ones of Tor Browser. Thus, by clicking on the button that would be added corresponding to the "Tor Mode", you will probably open a new window in which a dedicated profile and "Ultra Secure" is used.
In addition, this mode would necessarily require the use of HTTPS, although, as we have said for the moment, all this is in the early stages of development to see what would be the best way to achieve full integration after passing the mentioned extension. What is certain is that all this, that is to say integrate Tor in Firefox, it would bring an experience private navigation real and more secure for a large number of Internet users around the world, which could be an important precedent in this software sector.
For years, Amazon struggled third-party sellers who list imitations of everything from charging cables for iPhone to soccer jerseys on his site. Nutritional supplements are another popular target for counterfeit products, as is a largely unregulated industry. The US Food and Drug Administration has been criticized – particularly by former staff-To refuse to test food supplements for safety and effectiveness in the same way as pharmaceutical products. In this case, the problems came together: an Amazonian merchant sold authentic probiotics dupes manufactured by Align, to the brand Procter & Gamble.
"We are aware that some counterfeit Align products have been sold to Amazon through third parties," said Mollie Wheeler, spokesperson for Procter & Gamble, in an email. "Amazon has confirmed that it has stopped third-party sales of the Align products in question and that it only sells Align products received directly from P & G's manufacturing facilities."
In a statement, a spokeswoman for Amazon pointed to several initiatives that the company has developed to detect counterfeiters, such as Trademark Register and Project zero. Trademarks must generally participate in these programs and the spokesman declined to say whether Procter & Gamble or Align were already registered.
"We examine every potential counterfeit complaint thoroughly, often in partnership with brands, and in the rare cases where a bad actor succeeds, we take swift action, including removing the item for sale, by banning the bad actors, by suing, and working with the forces of the order if necessary ", one reads in the declaration. "We have taken these actions against the wrong actors in question and have proactively notified and refunded the customers." Neither Amazon nor Procter & Gamble would say who detected the first pills.
Amazon also did not answer the question of whether it was going to test the counterfeit probiotics, leaving Bressler and other customers wondering if they ingested anything dangerous. FDA you found Supplements sometimes contain prescription pharmaceuticals such as steroids or antidepressants, which can be harmful if a person takes them without being aware of them. CVS Recently announced plans to independently test each nutritional supplement offered in its stores. The fact that Amazon does not do the same thing may seem inconsiderate, but the fact is that the company has already taken many more steps than it is required by law.
Even if the counterfeit Align tablets sold by Amazon were harmful, Bressler and the other buyers would probably have little legal recourse against the company. When consumers tried to sell their products online, they have been selling their products for a few years.
Retailers, on the other hand, can be held directly responsible for selling things like dubious dietary supplements. Three years ago, the Ministry of Justice controlled CNG must pay a $ 2 million fine for selling products containing harmful hidden ingredients, and the chain has agreed to better control the goods on its shelves.
Amazon is both a retailer and a third-party market. It buys certain products directly from the manufacturers and sells them at a high price, and allows independent traders to offer their products directly to consumers, the latter representing 58 percent gross sales of goods on the platform. But the line of demarcation between these two parts of his activity is not always clear. Amazon exercises significant control over vendors, including dictating the presentation of their products in search results. In addition, it often stores and ships their products for them. And unlike eBay, Etsy or other online marketplaces, a single list of Amazon products may feature products from dozens of independent sellers, which prevents consumers from knowing who they are buying a product from. "Amazon has obviously continued to push the needle more and more to take responsibility for the products in the market," said Goldman.
US Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit governed Earlier this month, such differences effectively make Amazon responsible for harmful products sold by third-party sellers under certain circumstances. "Noted judges noted noted because because because because because because", "" "" "" "The The The The Amazon The Amazon a third-party seller on Amazon in 2014. Several weeks later, while she was walking her dog, the dog was broken, leaving the woman blind permanently.Goldman notes that the decision is based on the Pennsylvania law and does not define yet precedent for the rest of the country, Amazon is also ask the court see again.
Making Amazon legally responsible for everything on its site would not be a quick fix. The immunity granted under section 230 is what has in part allowed online markets to flourish. If the platforms became totally responsible, it would make it incredibly difficult, for example, Etsy to allow independent artists to sell their work on their site. Amazon you have banned some products he was deemed dangerous, like hoverboardsbut there are an infinite number of other categories in which seemingly benign products can pose risks.
And in situations where Amazon can not be held legally accountable, it may be nearly impossible to locate entities that are. The third-party vendor who sold Align imitating tablets or the company that made them may be very difficult to find, especially if they are abroad. In the dog collar business, The Furry Gang, the third-party vendor who sold the faulty collar, has completely disappeared.
The US government takes more reviews the growing problem of counterfeits and the way online shopping has allowed many imitations to flourish. Thursday, legislators in the House of Representatives held a hearing counterfeits, where representatives of various industries spoke of the threat to their businesses. "As one of the largest and most influential online trading companies in the world, Amazon has an important role to play in ensuring that counterfeit products remain out of the reach of consumers," Robert said. C. Barchiesi of the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition in written testimony. "And we look forward to their continued cooperation to this end."
