Netflix Targets Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions In 2022; One Streaming Netflix Hour “Well Under” Carbon Equivalent Of Quarter Mile Drive
By Jill Goldsmith

Netflix Tuesday joined a growing group of companies exploring the environmental footprint of their businesses as the streamer committed to pollute less and increase investment in prevention, conservation, and regeneration projects. It is committing to reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by the end of next year and years thereafter.

In a blog post, the company’s first Sustainability Officer, Emma Stewart, outlined steps to reach that goal with a plan informed by climate science — and perhaps with some backup from the content side. “We acknowledge the reach of sustainability stories on Netflix,” she said, noting that in 2020, 160 million households watched at least one sustainability related title. Some 100 million households tuned into Our Planet since the launch in 2019 of the series of nature and ecology documentaries hosted by David Attenborough.

The Special Netflix Presentation of Diana, directed by Christopher Ashley, was filmed in 2020 and features the original Broadway cast, led by Jeanna de Waal as Diana, Roe Hartrampf as Prince Charles, Erin Davie as Camilla Parker Bowles and two-time Tony winner Judy Kaye as Queen Elizabeth.

Still amazes me how these projects play out. The first was a delightful hit, likely beyond any expectations, so let's wildly overpay for the inevitable sequel mediocrity that will follow.

That will pay for a lot of Do(nuts) for guarantee "mediocrity".
Most sequels failed from a story perspective. I might be a minority who don't care for any of the Star Wars after 1981.

Rogue One?
You got me on that one. I did enjoy Rogue One, outside of the Leia/Solo legacy. The story lines just felt contrived and silly, nowhere as good as something like The Expanse with a way smaller budget and rather unknown actors at the time.
I do like Daisy's character as a strong woman but the plot can't save her.

LaKeith Stanfield becomes Yasuke, the first African samurai, in debut trailer for Netflix anime series

Creator LeSean Thomas tells EW he hopes his show will be a "gateway" for viewers into anime.

By Nick Romano

Yasuke, the world's first African samurai, had to fight for his place in history. The records of his time traversing 16th century Japan and serving under daimyō Nobunaga Oda are still sparse and filled with gaps. And yet, given the figure's significance, anime creator LeSean Thomas is surprised there hasn't been any "full-fledged mainstream media storytelling" of the warrior. He's about to change that now, albeit with a supernatural twist.

EW can exclusively reveal the first trailer for Yasuke, Thomas' new anime series for Netflix that features Judas and the Black Messiah Oscar nominee LaKeith Stanfield as the voice of the title sword-bearer.

Told across six episodes, the alternate-reality series, designed by animation studio MAPPA (Attack on Titan: The Final Season), follows the greatest ronin ever known as he struggles to maintain a peaceful life as a boatman to a local village after surviving a past marked by violence and death.

Record producer Flying Lotus crafted the music for Yasuke and also helped shape the story with Thomas and Stanfield.

"The stuff that I tend to make I consider gateway anime," Thomas tells EW over the phone from Tokyo, where he's been working in the Japanese anime scene for the past few years. "These are projects that have a combination of ingredients that you wouldn't normally get from the Japanese industry because of the history, the regional differences, and our cultural approaches. There are people who I'm pretty sure will say something like, 'Well, I'm not really into anime but, man, it has LaKeith,' or, 'Wow! Flying Lotus. I want to check that out.'"
