Week in Geek #94: VOD in the Coronavirus Era and Rosario Dawson is Ahsoka Tano | Fanboys Anonymous
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

VOD and the Coronavirus

A lot of films are being bumped up on their release schedules because there's no reason not to. For instance, Frozen II and Sonic the Hedgehog, Onward, Bloodshot and more are all either currently on streaming platforms or will be very soon. That is because there is no alternative. All movie theaters are closed, so there's no chance of making any money through the remaining people checking them out in-person.

But a lot of people are discussing how this will impact the future. Is this going to make people feel like they need to have films released more at home rather than in theaters? I highly, highly doubt it. If anything, people are going to miss going to the theaters even more and when we can do that again, it'll be booming.

What I do think will happen, though, is this will give some studios some information on whether or not people are interested in seeing things bumped up in their schedules in general. For example, if the new Bond film No Time to Die comes out November 25th and the regularly scheduled VOD release would be April or May, maybe it'll be bumped up to March. That would make sense to me.

Rosario Dawson Cast as Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian Season 2

This is pretty cool. I'm not particularly fond of how Ahsoka's character is one of these super important pieces of the puzzle that the movies can easily get away with completely ignoring, as it exposes one of the fatal flaws of how Lucasfilm and Disney's story group has approached non-film media over the past bunch of years. However, she's a character that many people love and to see her brought into a live-action format played by someone as great as Rosario Dawson is pretty cool.
