Coca-Cola almost bought Dr Pepper in the Eighties and likewise Pepsico almost bought 7Up in the same decade, though both would get their chance when they bought the drink companies' non-North American units.

vivo was almost a dreamworks film, back in 2010, Lin Manuel miranda pitched an idea for a film to DreamWorks Animation following the success of his stage musical in the heights. Due to a restructuring in 2015, DreamWorks eventually dropped the project. On December 14, 2016, Sony Pictures Animation, eventually acquired the project from DreamWorks and fast-tracked it under the name Vivo

In Return of the Jedi, it was General Madine who was going to lead the Rebel attack on the Death Star, not Admiral Ackbar. They filmed the same scenes with both characters, in case the Admiral Ackbar costume/animatronics didn't work out or looked convincing enough. Apparently, they did, and a meme was born.

It also explains why Kenner released General Madine and Admiral Ackar action figures in the first assortment of Return of the Jedi figures in 1983; it was their way of hedging their bets over which character would end in that role when the movie's toys were being designed and the film itself was in post-production.

Today I have learned about the downside effects of over consuming (had an interesting lecturer from Europe, and was very surprised how much attention do they pay on sustainability and nature conservation). I have never thought about the effect of our consumption. So I think we have to set priorities. Really, imagine if each of us would stop buying useless things. All those factories would go bankrupt! My brother yesterday bought three adult onesie, just because they were with different characters. What for? And I am sure that each of us buys a lot of skin care or cosmetics and doesn`t even finish them. We consume too much.

The scene from the How I Met Your Mother finale in which Ted reveals the identity of the mother to his children Luke and Penny was shot in 2006 as the teenage actors portraying the two would be adults by the time the final season was shot.

Steven Spielberg acquired the rights for the book in 1991, planning to produce a traditionally animated film based on the book. However, DreamWorks ended up acquiring the rights for the book for approximately $500,000 and putting it in active development in November 1995

Red Hot Chili Peppers actually recorded an entire album back in 2003 before deciding to scrap it with two songs ultimately making into their Greatest Hits album.

You're referring to Shrek.

The voice work for Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust was actually recorded in English first than in Japanese, which is why the anime film was released in North America before it was released in Japan.

The MeTV online schedule for Bugs Bunny and Friends mistakenly listed People Are Bunny for today when instead there was Hare Trigger.

Also, today seems like an anniversary for something...just trying to remember what it was I was thinking of.
