‘House of the Dragon,’ ‘Rings of Power,’ and Interviewing Adrien Brody

Chris and Andy discuss standing ovation culture at the Cannes Film Festival (01:29), and Bob Iger’s admission that he tried to tell too many stories at the start of streaming (05:47). They talk about the many prequels being announced, starting with Dune: Prophecy (12:31), as well as the companies’ commitment to getting a return on investment for their IP.
