    It's part of the human condition to care about whether free will is real or not?

    Loki came back from another timeline, and so did Gamora. Black Widow is getting a movie despite her death, and apparently Iron Man will make a cameo in it. It's not as bad as in the comic books, but it's already at the point where death doesn't really matter.

    It takes all that practice and more when you use a real instrument. I've "made music" with software, but I could never play a piano or even drums.

    It still takes a lot of practice to make anything worth listening to in them.

    Min Min? We already know they're working on it. They tend to only share news when a game is close to being finished.

    Also the first female only DLC character - prior it was only the alt costumes

    Min Min?

    although I wish MP4 also got the "we're working on it" updates

    To see what will happen? I think you just need to make the character(s) interesting enough. Besides, there are plenty of stories with unlikable protagonists.

    You do need to root for the protagonist, or else why would you watch a movie?

    I don't think you need to root for the protagonist. And not every action needs to be justified for them to be sympathetic. I haven't seen Joker, but wasn't that a big movie with a villainous protagonist? Maleficent was the hero in her movie, but based on this trailer, I don't think that's what they're going for here.

    Looks like it's only in the live-action remake actually, though I haven't read the book.

    watching educational content, which is a good form of screentime

    Maybe, but a lot of the "educational" channels on Youtube spread misinformation and/or have a political agenda. 90% of the time the kid would be better off reading a book (unless it's really young) or even watching TV, in my opinion. I don't think there are a lot of pros with "digital babysitting"...

    And France has fairly low English proficiency and a decent domestic media industry. Think how bad it is in countries without that.
