Star Wars, Apple, and Mario, Oh My!

What a weekend, am I right? Here’s some interesting news to come from the past few days. First up we’ve got news that more Star Wars movies ARE DEFINITELY HAPPENING. How exciting that news is largely up to how you feel after Rise of Skywalker. Next up, we’ve got Apple testing their noninvasive blood glucose technology, which I think is pretty neat. Wrapping things up we delve into the impressive box office numbers of everyone’s favorite video game plumber. It’s Mario. Mario wins the box office. That’s the tweet, or whatever.

Oh boy, the Star Wars movies are starting up again!

Maybe these will actually get made?  I did notice no mention of Taika or Rian Johnson…. Hmmm…. -Bryan

Well, there you have it – a bite-sized look at the news from yesterday that we here at After the Hype found important. I don’t suppose you have thoughts on any of these stories, do you? Because if you did I would like to recommend you let us know over at our discord.
