  3. Further to our discussions on Sonic, someone has a lot of time on their hands...
  4. Yes Frozen worked really well. Someone pointed out how close it was to the Episode 9 teaser. Re trailer bumpers it seems they’re a necessary evil although no one likes them. I like when we get the opportunity to do something interesting with them. Second trailer for once upon a time in Hollywood being a great example of that.
