The first trailer for “Star Wars 9” came out this weekend, and now we know the official title: “The Rise of Skywalker”. Late December is the street date. Speaking of Skywalker, there’s a voiceover from MARK HAMILL saying, quote, “We’ll always be with you. No one’s ever really gone.” Then the screen goes black, and the clip ends with maniacal laughter. It turns out that laughter came from IAN MCDIARMID . . . a.k.a. The Emperor. You know, the guy that Luke and a reformed Darth Vader supposedly killed at the end of “Return of the Jedi”. The trailer was first unveiled at an event called “Star Wars Celebration” in Chicago, and McDiarmid was there to confirm it’s his laugh. The trailer gives us our first look at BILLY DEE WILLIAMS, returning as Lando Calrissean . . . and CARRIE FISHER, who’s in the movie thanks to unused footage from the last movie. By the way . . . this is going to be the last “Star Wars” movie for a while. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy says, quote, “We’re going to take a hiatus for a couple of years. “And we’re taking the time to really look at where this is going from the standpoint of a saga.”
Disney+ isn’t even launching until November, and it’s already causing chaos for Netflix. On Thursday, after Disney’s big announcement, Netflix stock dropped 2%. That doesn’t sound like much, but it translates to $3.2 BILLION. Disney+ is going to have hugely popular content, but that’s not the only thing Netflix has to worry about. Disney+ is also 7 bucks a month, or $70 a year. That’s about half of what Netflix costs. But some analysts think Netflix is going to be fine because it has a wide variety of content, while Disney+ will pretty much be family-friendly stuff.
Hulu has ordered The Dropout with SNL’s Kate McKinnon as Elizabeth Holmes the founder of Theranos. (claiming they had a blood test that used way less blood and cost less but with accurate results) The series will be based on the podcast of the same name, as well as a two-hour ABC News documentary about the rise and fall of Holmes, once the youngest self-made billionaire. She pleaded not guilty. A premiere date has yet to be announced.

Next week it’ll be two years since the bombing at ARIANA GRANDE’s concert in Manchester, England . . . and the damage it caused is still very, very real.

After winning game 2 in Winnipeg against the Jets and taking a 2-0 series lead, the Blues were at Enterprise Center last night for Game 3. And, David Perron opened up the scoring and put the Blues up 1-0 on the 1st. Then the Jets scored 3 in a row in the second to take a 3-1 lead. Shortly after the third opened, Vladimir Tarasenko scored pushing the Blues within one. Unfortunately, things didn’t get better. Back-to-back Jets’ goals put them up 5-2. Alexander Steen ended up scoring, but it was too little too late, and Winnipeg’s Kyle Connor scored his second of the game shortly after that and that was your final…Winnipeg 6….Blues 3. The team is off tonight but game 4 is tomorrow night. And…it’s a late one. Puck drops at 8:30PM.

TIGER WOODS is back. Or at least he was yesterday. He won the Masters at 13 under par. It was his first victory in a Major tournament since he won the U.S. Open in June of 2008 . . . almost 11 years ago. As everyone knows, his run as the best golfer in the world was sidetracked shortly after that by multiple back surgeries . . . not to mention his insatiable lust for white women. This was Tiger’s 15th major title, and he’s now just three behind record holder JACK NICKLAUS, who has 18. Maybe he can get back to the business of surpassing Jack now.
A sports bettor is taking home nearly $1.2 million after Tiger Woods defied the odds to win his 15th major championship. The unidentified gambler placed an $85,000 wager with William Hill on Tuesday on Woods to win the Masters. The bet was made at 14-1 odds, meaning the bettor would walk away with $1,190,000 if Woods won. According to ESPN, it was the first bet ever placed by the gambler at William Hill. It’s the largest single golf ticket in the company’s U.S. history.

Tonight, the Cardinals are up in Milwaukee to take on the Brewers. First pitch is scheduled for 6:40PM.
The nightmare is over for CHRIS DAVIS of the Baltimore Orioles. After a record-setting 54 straight at-bats without a hit, stretching all the way back to last September, Chris got a base hit. And he knocked in two runs in the process. He ended up going 3 for 5 on the day, with two doubles and four RBIs. He had a big smile on his face when he got to first base. He even asked for the ball.
