If you’ve seen Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, you know that the Scottish accents of the main characters can be so thick that it’s sometimes hard to understand what they’re saying. But did you know that their accents were so thick initially that Boyle actually re-recorded the first 20 minutes of Trainspotting’s dialogue so that American audiences would be able to understand them without subtitles? We’re not entirely sure he was successful. That’s just one of the facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

It’s been eleven years since the first Trainspotting gave us an instant classic, and enough time has passed for Renton, Spud, Simon, and Begbie to learn that their lives as constantly drug-addled youths were unsustainable. In the meantime, Begbie has done some time in prison, Renton and Spud have gotten into system-cleansing athletic routines, and Simon has a very special business venture in the works.

Raise your hand if you get bored and try out different accents. This is a habit I picked up as a kid that continues to this day. After watching the first season of Justified, for example, the rural Kentucky accent wormed its way so deeply into my brain that I had a hard time turning it off. As a result, one of my favorite videos of 2016 was this Wired piece where a dialogue coach weighed in on 32 different performances. It really highlights the amount of detail that goes into every single sentence an actor delivers.

Everyone knows how Beauty and the Beast starts off — a haughty prince refuses to give shelter to an old lady who turns out to be a fairy, who then curses him and his whole castle, turning him into a monster and his staff into inanimate objects. Well, the inanimate objects are still pretty animate, able to talk and dance and sing at poor Belle, who should be checking her food for hallucinogens rather than singing along, but who cares, this is a Disney movie. For those of you dying to see the rest of the castle’s inhabitants in their more flesh-and-blood forms, they’re human again in a new poster standee for the movie.

The notion of an Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff has been floating around for years, perpetuated in part by Ewan McGregor, who played the young version of Luke Skywalker’s mentor in the Star Wars prequels. As recently as last month, McGregor was still talking up the concept with his idea for a two-part spinoff. Lucasfilm has kept unusually quiet about the whole thing, and according to a new rumor, we might finally know why.

Turns out, choosing life isn’t all that fun once you grow up and succumb to tedious responsibilities and the repetitive monotony of daily life. That’s a lesson Ewan McGregor’s Mark Renton appears to have learned in the 20 years between Trainspotting and Danny Boyle’s long-awaited sequel. As a little pre-Thanksgiving treat, Sony has released an international trailer for T2: Trainspotting, featuring a bit of new footage and plenty of new things from which to choose.

Over the past few years, there has been a small but noticeable attempt to rehabilitate the image of the Star Wars prequels in popular culture. Last November, for example, the A.V. Club published an article on why the Star Wars prequels don’t deserve our hatred. Similar pieces have been published in The Mary Sue, USA Today, and many other websites and online publications. It just goes to show that there is a lid for every pot, no matter how misshapen that pot may be.
