An Auckland mother is appealing to the public to help them locate a dollhouse her husband has mistakenly donated.

But this isn’t just any dollhouse – it’s a family heirloom secretly made during the war by RAF pilots.

“Please return my daughter’s dollhouse – recently picked up from Eversleigh Rd. Her father threw it away without permission,” Rachel Rogan posted on her local Facebook page.

“Really sorry for those ladies who picked it up … but please can we ask for it back?” “

The story dates back to World War II, but the final chapter began last Saturday, November 27, when the Rogan family were cleaning out their home in Belmont, on Auckland’s north coast.

Rogan’s husband had put the house – which had been in storage for about a decade – on the back deck, and Rogan and his daughter were looking inside, remembering when the kids were young and used to playing with it. .

Twenty minutes later, Rogan walked past the bridge, noticed that he was missing, and called her husband to ask where he had put it.

“He said, ‘Here we go, I took him to the door and some people took him.”

Rogan’s husband had put it outside when two couples walked by, liked the look and took it with them.

“My daughter burst into tears. The first thing she said was, ‘I wanted my grandchildren to play with this,’” Rogan said.

“I still feel the tear in my stomach. It was just one of those really heartbreaking whoopsie moments.”

Her husband made a real mistake, and now the family just wants the inheritance back. But although Rogan’s Facebook post has been shared over 100 times, they still haven’t found it.

“The reason we want it back isn’t because of its beauty or anything like that, it’s because of who did it and for whom they did it and the fact that it was that symbol of love and hope and just something that could be fun for other people to play with, but it will never have value for other families like ours, ”Rogan said.

The house was painstakingly built for a year, in secret. Rogan’s husband’s grandfather was an RAF pilot and built the house in the workshop of his training headquarters in the South Island, enlisting other pilots to help him.

He had a one year old daughter at the time and wanted her to remember him if he didn’t come back from the war. The pilots would steal pieces of wood and make the house, and tiny pieces of furniture for her when their supervisors were not looking. He has the nicest little round Rimu dining table, said Rogan.

It was given to his daughter Patricia, who eventually passed it on to Rogan’s daughters – his grandnieces.

“You kind of don’t realize what something like this means to you until you suddenly get deprived of it,” Rogan said.

“It’s terrible when it’s something we should be able to share with the next members of our family.”

Rogan would like him to come home, that his daughters could one day share him with their children, and that he would stay with their family. She was also concerned that there might be lead in the paint, as she was going to have it tested before it was appreciated by the next generation.

“It’s just a mistake. An unfortunate situation that arose out of a mistake, and I’m just appealing to [whoever took it] for forgiveness or something, and I just hope they don’t get attached as much as we do. “

USPS Operation Santa helps children in need. Santa’s elves can join his workshop to help make children’s wishes come true this holiday season.

SAN DIEGO – Operation Santa Claus is in full swing. The US Postal Service is recruiting Santa Claus elves to help make children’s wishes come true. But it takes more children in need to write Santa Claus.

Two years ago, it was the first time that Mayra Elena-Hernandez adopted a letter from a girl named Jacqueline.

“My sister is 6 and I’m currently 11 and I still believe in you and I won’t let the Grinch take that spirit,” Jacquelin wrote.

“It really spoke to me. When I grew up and came to America one of the things was that I was lucky I always had Christmas presents under the tree, but not always my classmates ”, said Elena-Hernandez, a postal worker in the United States.

Operation Santa began in 1912; the anonymous program helps children who may not receive gifts.

“The letters are going crazy right now on the website, so we want the kids to write their letters,” said Juvylyn Sevilla, USPS Customer Relations.

So far 2,300 California children in need have written letters and 25,000 across the country are hoping to double what would be a record.

“My mom is a single mom with two kids – me and my younger sister,” McCenzie wrote. “She struggles with money and accounts and I know there are a lot of other people in the same situation or worse, I would be extremely grateful.”

Children can write in their mother tongue. Jacqueline wrote her letter in Spanish.

“I specifically chose this letter because it is written in Spanish and I am Spanish speaking,” said Elena-Hernandez.

Children can request whatever they want such as a dollhouse, computer, or gift cards.

An adopter can go to the USPS Operation Santa website, read the letters and adopt a child or family, and fulfill as many wishes as you want.

Mayra’s boyfriend is joining Santa’s Workshop this year.

“We will adopt at least one letter together. We are trying to make it become a tradition with us, ”said Elena-Hernandez.

A tradition that helps children in need to believe in Santa Claus and the magic of the holidays.

“There are a lot of generous people, a lot of little elves who are trying to make this holiday season a reality, especially for the kids of San Diego,” said Elena-Hernandez.

Children must have a first class stamped letter stamped by December 10. Remember to include clothes and shoes size, age and full address and avoid 3D art, but you can make it as colorful as you want.

Letters go quickly to USPS Operation Santa. The next batch will be posted at 7:00 am PST. More needy children are needed to write so that his elves can help them make their wishes come true. https://www.uspsoperationsanta.com

IDAHO FALLS – The Idaho Museum in Idaho Falls recently announced its exciting list of exhibits for 2022.

The museum’s large exhibition hall will host “Genghis Khan: Culture and Conquest” from January to September 2022. The exhibition is the first Asian-focused exhibition to come to the museum. He explores war, art and domestic life through a combination of artefacts and interactive experiences.

“This is unlike any other exhibit we’ve ever had at the museum before,” MOI spokesperson Chloe Doucette told EastIdahoNews.com. “I feel like it really fulfills that aspect of our mission that brings the world to Idaho. You have the impression of a totally different culture. You will be able to see hundreds of Mongolian artifacts from the time of Genghis Khan.

In addition to the artefacts and interactive aspects of “Culture and Conquest”, the exhibition also features live musical performances. Together, all of the elements work together to broaden museum visitors’ understanding of who Khan was and the impact he had on the world.

“Everyone knows a thing or two about Genghis Khan,” said Doucette. “Maybe they recognize the name or maybe they know a little more about the Silk Road. But the impact of this person on the world is absolutely huge. So I think this exhibit is going be so fun and really interesting.

From September 2022 to January 2023, the museum will welcome visitors to dive into the world of toys with “Toytopia”. This exhibit examines toys throughout history, from our ancient ancestors to the present day.

Adam Forsgren, EastIdahoNews.com

This exhibit features a number of impressive interactive pieces, including an 8-foot-tall Etch-a-Sketch and life-size dollhouse, as well as many playable classic board and video games.

“’Toytopia’, in my mind, is all about creativity, design, build and test,” said Doucette. “But the way he tells this story is through the toys that made us who we are as a society.”

Visitors to “Toytopia” will also learn about the roles played by toys in the education of generations of children and see some of the techniques used in our favorite toys.

“I think on the outside people will be like ‘Oh that sounds really fun and I’m going to bring my family to that,’” said Doucette. “But I think what people are really going to take away from is that appreciation and that experience of,” Wow, there’s a lot of engineering, construction, and creative thinking to make toys what they are. “

The museum also recently opened a special pocket exhibit titled “Roy Reynolds: Layers of a Town”. The exhibit tells the story of the Idaho Falls through a series of 30 oil paintings by masterful local artist Roy Reynolds, who died in September.

“(Reynolds) really had a huge impact on the museum here, both through his oral histories, his stories, his artwork and his donations to the museum,” said Doucette. “He donated the tub that is in our hair salon display in our Eagle Rock recreation area. He was such a prolific artist and it was hard for a lot of people to lose him. So it is hopefully a way to honor his memory. “

“Roy Reynolds: Layers of a Town” runs until February 13, 2022.

Visitors can still view the Idaho Museum’s current traveling exhibit, “Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out” until December 5. Visitors can also view the museum’s permanent exhibit, “Way Out West”, at any time. Visitors who present their SNAP cards can still enter the museum for $ 1.00.

More information is available on the Museum of Idaho’s website and Facebook page.

Sweet baby Jesus, this is what our life will be like now. You thought the sensitive nature of Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox was disgusting, or that the PDA Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian released on the internet was bad. Well, here’s Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson, the new “WTF ?!” celebrity couple, already eager to show the world how hot they are for each other.

And how do they show it? With a hickey. Yes, the 28-year-old comedian (and the most unlikely Hollywood stallion of all time) was recently spotted in public with a red welt on his neck that could only be the stuff of the 41-year-old MILF – and all that. wet dreams of a college boy.

Twitter had some hilarious take on the physical evidence of the odd couple’s arousal:

Davidson’s already weird body might just get weirder and stranger… but more likely, it’s love at first bite. We wish we could skip the inevitable progression from hickey to sex tape and go straight to the breakup.

Walmart Cyber ​​Monday to restock PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles https://cprs-palestine.org/walmart-cyber-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bmonday-to-restock-ps5-and-xbox-series-x-consoles/ Sat, 27 Nov 2021 20:19:00 +0000 https://cprs-palestine.org/walmart-cyber-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bmonday-to-restock-ps5-and-xbox-series-x-consoles/ If you didn’t manage to find a PS5 or Xbox Series X on Black Friday, there is still hope for this holiday season.

If you didn’t manage to find a PS5 or Xbox Series X on Black Friday, there is still hope for this holiday season. Cyber ​​Monday is just around the corner, promising similar deals online (although I’m not sure how this differs so much from how ‘Black Friday’ has been conducted this year since everything was mostly sold online. in any event).

Either way, there is another chance for you to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X. But it won’t be easy.

Walmart announced these CyberWeek offers which start Sunday, November 28 at 7:00 p.m. There are deals on toys, electronics, fashion, beauty, and more.

PS5 and Xbox Series X restock on Cyber ​​Monday

Walmart has confirmed that they will be selling the PlayStation 5 ($ 499), PlayStation 5 Digital ($ 399), and Xbox Series X ($ 499) consoles online only, but there’s a catch: this is a version special exclusive to Walmart + members. Starting at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 a.m.PT, Walmart + members will have exclusive access to the limited number of next-gen consoles available.

Walmart + is basically a Walmart membership that offers certain perks including early access to Black Friday and online events / deals during holidays like this. Some additional benefits include free delivery with no minimum order, free delivery from your store, member fuel prices, and more. In that case, you probably only care for the chance of getting yourself a next-gen console.

A Walmart + membership costs $ 12.95 per month or $ 98 for the year. Although trials are offered, you must have a paid subscription to access the Cyber ​​Monday offer.

Walmart has not specified how many of these consoles will be available, but you can bet they will sell out quickly.

So far, Walmart is the only retailer to confirm supply for the PS5 and Xbox Series X on Cyber ​​Monday, but I’m guessing at least a few other retailers will (hopefully) have some. GameStop, for example, had limited console packs available in stores for Thanksgiving.

Now if only being a Walmart + member could guarantee me a Gabby’s Dollhouse Purrfect Dollhouse playset, because that’s what I really need Santa to bring me this year.

Stephanie Haase Moore
Stephanie Haase Moore, 83, of Wilton, CT, died on November 18, 2021 at Meadow Ridge Medical Center while recovering from recent heart surgery.
For sixty-one years, she was the beloved wife of Gary Moore, then the loving mother of Scott, Leanne and Kristen and the beloved grandmother of Emma, ​​Katie and Charlotte.
Steffi was born April 19, 1938 in New Rochelle, NY, attended Thornton Donoval School, and lived on Interlaken Avenue until she was fifteen. In 1953, her parents, George and Helen Haase, moved the family to Sturges Ridge Road in Wilton, and she attended Staples High School in Westport, where she graduated in 1956.
She then attended Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pa., Where she majored in English Literature and was proud to be a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority. Stef was fortunate enough to meet the handsome former GI, Gary , in the student snack bar, and reluctantly agreed to have a beer with him at the local farmer’s bar. They married five months later and completed their studies together.
Steffi and Gary quickly started a family, first residing in Bridgeport, then relocating to Wilton, Connecticut. She was very proud to be an amazing stay-at-home mom, who focused on volunteering with any organization that needed her. The bands she was most devoted to included The Treasure House and The Turnover Shop, and her ultimate joy came from the hours she dedicated to the biannual Minks to Sinks event.
Steffi took her role as a grandmother very seriously and took great pleasure in her three granddaughters. She especially enjoyed sharing her love for dollhouse collectibles, watching movies and making them her famous paprikash chicken.
In addition to his nearly seven-decade love for Wilton, Steffi also relished his family time in western Pennsylvania, where Gary grew up. She was always content to relax with a crossword puzzle or a book on the porch seesaw with a glass of wine in hand, her famous spaghetti sauce bubbling on the stove. She especially enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.
Stephanie is survived by her husband, Gary, her two daughters, Leanne Moore of Norwalk and Kristen and her husband, Stewart, of Ridgefield, her granddaughters Emma Caroline, Katherine Scott and Charlotte Claire, as well as her brother Jon Haase and her wife Margaret of Wilton. She is predeceased by her son, Scott.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, December 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm at the Bouton Funeral Home, 31 W. Church St., Georgetown, CT 06829. Friends can greet family from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm. Interment will be private at Hillside Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made in his memory to the Family and Children’s Agency or the Wilton Library.

200-year-old British residence in Hyderabad to reopen as window on Deccan politics https://cprs-palestine.org/200-year-old-british-residence-in-hyderabad-to-reopen-as-window-on-deccan-politics/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 17:09:57 +0000 https://cprs-palestine.org/200-year-old-british-residence-in-hyderabad-to-reopen-as-window-on-deccan-politics/ In January, the British Residency building in Hyderabad, a lavish mansion that introduced European architectural style to the region in the early 19th century and one of the city’s most important heritage structures, will come full circle.

In January, the British Residency building in Hyderabad, a lavish mansion that introduced European architectural style to the region in the early 19th century and one of the city’s most important heritage structures, will come full circle. The launch of an in-house interpretive center will complete the building’s conservation process for the future, although visitors will have to wait a few more months before the campus is open to the public.

Built between 1803 and 1808, this building was not only the seat of the residents of the East India Company at the court of the Nizam, but also a center of power that at times overshadowed the authority of successive monarchs.

(Express photo: Rahul V Pisharody)

The residence, which provided for a permanent station and a full-fledged military base for the British in the princely state of Hyderabad, was also the result of the subsidiary alliance treaty signed by the second Nizam, Mir Nizam Ali Khan, Asaf Jah II. with the British East India Company in 1798.

After independence, the historic monument became the Osmania University College for Women (OUCW) until it was closed for restoration in the early 2000s.

(Express photo: Rahul V Pisharody)

Now a protected monument notified by the State Department for Heritage, the building also serves as the backdrop to the famous book by Scottish historian William Dalrymple. White Mughals: Love and Betrayal in 18th Century India, the story of the love affair between British resident James Achilles Kirkpatrick and Khair-un-Nissa Begum, a Muslim nobleman he married. It was Kirkpatrick who, when he was the 6th resident of Hyderabad between 1798 and 1805, commissioned and supervised the construction of the building.

At present, a small team of laborers are finishing the last coats of limewash and are working on various utilities. Once inaugurated in January, the building will have an interpretation center while the OUCW will retain some rooms to accommodate the offices of the principal, vice-principal and a meeting room.

(Express photo: Rahul V Pisharody)

The story that shaped Deccan politics

The building, designed by Lt. Samuel Russell of Madras Engineers, lasted six years under the supervision of Kirkpatrick and Raja Mudaliar. It was following the Treaty of Subsidiary Alliance in 1798, says Professor Salma Ahmed Farooqui of the HK Sherwani Center for Deccan Studies at Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), that the land and garden house of Nawab Shamsher Jung were handed over to the Briton by the Second Nizam for the construction of a permanent residence for the British diplomat.

“After signing the treaty, the British gained a political foothold in the princely state of Hyderabad. A cantonment, the largest in the country at the time, was established in Secunderabad and British troops were stationed permanently. In addition, the Nizam ceded the fertile eastern coastal areas of northern Circars to the British, ”adds Professor Farooqui, who is also director (Indian office of the Association for the Study of Persian Societies).

The residents, beyond being diplomats, were very popular in Hyderabadi’s social circles, she said. They adopted the local culture, dressed as nawabs, attended social gatherings, got used to making casseroles and hookahs, and spoke in Persian and later in Urdu. It was also a time when the influence of the European way of life and of English as a language was immense among the nobles. “Kirkpatrick was so popular that he was awarded the title of Hashmat Jung by the Nizam. He was also called Farzand-e-Dilpasand, which means the favorite son. The bazaar areas near the residence – Hashmat Gunj and Russell Gunj, were named after British residents, ”she adds.

However, with their popularity, their hold on the monarchs increased. Quoting a book, Nizam-British relations 1724-1857 by academic Sarojini Regani, Professor Farooqui says the Nizam chose colonial agents because of threats his kingdom faced from the Maratha rulers and Sultan Tipu of Mysore. It was also during the reign of the Second Nizam that the rulers of Asaf Jah moved the region’s capital to Hyderabad from Aurangabad. Previously, Hyderabad had been the capital of the Qutb Shahi dynasty between 1591 and 1687, until the Mughal Emperor Aurangazeb conquered Golconda and transferred the capital to Aurangabad. While the first Nizam, Mir Qamar-ud-din Khan, Asaf Jah I, declared independence from the Mughals in 1724, it was not until 1763 that the capital was moved from Aurangabad to Hyderabad.

During the reigns of the successive Nizams, the power and influence of British residents grew further, she says, so that even the Prime Minister of the State was the choice of the British who had a lot to say in all fields. . “Mir Farqunda Ali Khan, the fourth Nizam, received the title of Yar-o-Wafadar (staunch ally) by the British. Although the Nizam is the sovereign general, its autonomy has not remained as it would have been if it had not signed the subsidiary alliance treaty ”, declared Professor Farooqui.

A conservation project that took 15 years to take off

While conservation and restoration work only started in 2015, it was in the early 2000s that the then university director, Pramada Devi, and the heritage conservation architect Vasanta Shobha Turaga explored ways to preserve the building for the future from structural disintegration. In 2002 and 2004, the building was listed as a Distressed Historic Monument under the World Monuments Watch program of the World Monuments Fund, New York.

The college prepared a conservation management plan in collaboration with the WMF in 2010. A project implementation committee, comprising the OU, the Heritage Department, the National Culture Fund and the WMF, is working was then assembled to raise funds and work started in 2015. About Rs 13 crore of the total project cost Rs 17 crore has been spent on restoration so far and donations continue to be collected, said a member of the project team.

(Express photo: Rahul V Pisharody)

First, the model of the Residence building destroyed in 1978 by a fall from a tree branch was restored. The dollhouse, a tradition in English manor houses, located in the gardens of Rang Mahal, has been remodeled with the help of the Deccan Heritage Foundation, in London. The adjoining cemetery has been restored with the support of the British Association for Cemeteries in South Asia (BASCA)

Considering the size of the building and the multiple layers of history, the conservation project was difficult, argued the conservation team led by chief conservation architects, conservation architects GN Heritage Matters and the restaurateur, Jeernodhar Conservators. The work was undertaken in six phases depending on the priority of conservation needs and the availability of funds. “The first task to be done was a threat to the structural integrity of the building. The ceiling of the west oval room (ball) had disintegrated. We had to take it apart and redo it. In addition, the wooden beams were damaged due to water infiltration. “Getting a huge 30-foot-long piece of teak wood to redo an entire beam was also a challenge. “

(Express photo: Rahul V Pisharody / File)

At the time of the start of the works, only eight ceiling fans in the Darbar Hall, three chandeliers and 12 large mirrors from the British era were present, with the exception of the original Burmese teak wood doors and windows. The conservation team believe the building, although one of the finest examples of Palladian architecture, was not designed by an architect.

“While we had literature and pictures for reference, the building began to reveal layers of history on its own. This is because they continued to renovate the building as new residents took over. The designs, probably taken from model books, were translated into the building by Indian artisans. Oval ballrooms were originally not oval but rectangular. The circular staircase was not present.

The building has, in addition to the Darbar Hall, seven rooms on the ground floor and nine rooms on the first in addition to a basement (originally designed to be the ground floor). Although the classical facade on the north side with massive columns, marble stairs and two lions as guards on either side, forms a rich portico, the original entrance to the building was through the basement on the south side with a circular portico that faced the old town beyond the river Musi. The conservation team added, “For a long time we thought the dome was masonry, but when we looked at it we found there was a wooden frame inside. The revelation of the historical layers occurred even after four years. Once when we opened a wall we found a wooden staircase behind it.

Another unique feature of the building is the papier-mâché ceiling of the Darbar Hall, possibly the only one of its kind surviving in India. This was nearly 60 percent damaged and its restoration alone took a few years. Each challenge led to a change in the decision-making process for an appropriate conservation intervention with the future of the building in mind, the team said.

Still work to do

In addition to 150 years of colonial history and its influence on the region, the interpretive center would also exhibit the role of the OUCW in educating women in the state during the seven decades following independence.

Conservation architect Anuradha Naik, who will be the curator of the center, explains that the concept is to disseminate information about the building, its history and the Deccan policy at the time, the conservation project, etc. using archival images, photographs and old maps.

According to OUCW head teacher Vijjulatha Manga, the building and center are slated to open in January. “But we also need to restore the Rang Mahal gate, the side wings and the gardens. It will take a few more months. HMDA has expressed its willingness to support the restoration of the side wings while the Pleach India Foundation has offered to restore the Rang Mahal gate and gardens, ”said the director.

Naik is currently the author of a book on the life and history of British Residence. “The building itself is the gem we have,” she says.

Ready to get started with decor, appliances or your kitchen layout? Look no further than the redesigned kitchen studio by Lesniks Küchen, who has worked with kitchen specialists to design spaces that are more than just cooking areas. Familiarize yourself with the store layout and product offerings before shopping so you can have a streamlined experience online or in person.

We caught up with Ilja Stepa, owner of 3Dstil.de, to find out more about how he used Matterport products to digitally transform Lesniks Küchen’s studio store into a 3D experience for online users. Read on to learn more about the project and the company’s future plans with the digital twins.

What inspired the 3D capture of this space?

The first time I visited this newly opened kitchen studio, I was truly surprised by the love and work the owners put into their project. The space, which I once knew as a warehouse, was beautiful. The new Lesniks Küchen studio is furnished with great diligence, attention to detail and great taste, so I absolutely wanted to capture this place in 3D to make it accessible to the world through the magic of Matterport.

What are the “must haves” that you want visitors to explore and why?

We love allowing users to explore every nook and cranny of our 3D spaces and experience the realism and precision of the comforts of their home – especially before they decide to visit it in person. They should also check out the additional views offered by the 3D digital twin, such as the spectacular view of the dollhouse. This feature never fails to delight users, according to studio owners and their clients.


What’s the one thing you want visitors to remember after exploring your 3D tour?

We want the visitor to our spaces to feel surprised, excited and, at the same time, comfortable to handle and navigate in 3D space. It is important for us to make the space intuitively usable and to entertain the user during their virtual tour of the space. Our goal is to create a seamless digital experience that will reflect a positive and professional perception of the brand and the place visited.

What are the benefits of your Matterport digital twin?

A digital twin makes it possible to visit spaces and places regardless of distance, opening hours and / or bad weather. They can experience the space as if they were actually there.

Thanks to the high resolution and intuitive navigation, 3D spaces can be experienced interactively from any device, increasing the location’s exposure to the digital world. The various view options, such as the dollhouse or the floor plan view, are additional bonuses, which in some cases may even exceed the on-site viewing possibilities.


Do you have plans to capture more 3D experiences?

Of course, we are just getting started! We love to spread awareness of the possibilities that Matterport brings to businesses and institutions in today’s digital world – and we love to see the enthusiasm of our customers once their location is completed and live as a digital twin.

Besides private companies, we engage with institutions such as museums, town halls and exhibitions to show them the fantastic possibilities offered by digital twins. We also look forward to extraordinary projects, such as converting entire yachts into Matterport 3D spaces.

We are very excited to see how Matterport will progress and grow in the future and look forward to helping our customers adapt 3D and VR technologies for their digital presentations and marketing.

Each season beyond the first season has had a title and the title for season 6 is Homecoming. In season six, the Spy Racers will meet their match with a mysterious new villain who seems to be one step ahead of them every step of the way. The final season will be a globetrotter event moving from the Swiss Alps to Los Angeles as they hunt down the villain.

Spy Racers Season 6 continues to feature the vocal talents of Tyler Posey, Charlet Chung, Jorge Diaz, Camille Ramsey, Luke Youngblood and Renée Elise Goldsberry.

Speaking to Collider, Tim Hendrick, who is the show’s executive producer, said, “It’s a dream come true to be a part of the biggest and worst action franchise ever and I don’t. can’t believe we’ve reached the end of the road with the Toretto squad, ”adding“ It’s really bittersweet to see this oversized last season drop as a Christmas present for the fans. Hope everyone will take it as much fun unboxing it as we got doing it. Tony, Echo, Layla, Frostee, Cisco and Nowhere will be part of my family forever and I will truly miss getting caught up in their adventures.

Once Fast and furious spy runners concludes, the only Dreamworks to keep getting new seasons on Netflix will be Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous, Gabby’s dollhouse, City of rhyme time and Go do. Go!. The studio is now mainly working on projects for Peacock, Hulu and Apple TV +.
