Miraculous World

You guys you guys you guys!!! The internet didn't lie to us! It was real! The Miraculous New York special is on Disney+YourSoul RIGHT NOW!!!! We were so eager that we even waited until midnight last night to check. was partly out of eagerness, and partly out of the knowledge that we stood a good chance of being interrupted if we waited to watch it today.

So we checked a little after midnight, and there it was, and Athena's hand was shaking as she moved the remote to select it because it feels like we've waited so long and it was just so momentous or something. And we were still afraid that it was too good to be true, like maybe we wouldn't get to watch it with French audio. I mean, technically we could just watch the English dub, but we've fallen so in love with the French cast that we just can't bring ourselves to do it, especially not for a first viewing. Especially because we think the cast is one of our favorite things about the show.

And we watched it right away! ...But with the volume down really low, because the walls in our apartment are really thin and we didn't want to bother the neighbors. And we had to try starting it three times. Disney+ said it was because of internet problems; we suspect it was all the people tuning in to watch the Mandalorian season finale. But if it was a bunch of people tuning in for the Miraculous special, that would be awesome!

Anyway. We have now seen it four times, which means we only have to watch it six more times to catch it up to the rest of the series. And oh my goodness, there's just so much in it that I don't know if I can talk about it coherently. Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for finally getting to watch the Miraculous World: New York, United Heroez special, Disney+ letting us watch in different languages (and most importantly, French), Mom's package arriving safe and sound, now being in possession of about a hundred cookies (courtesy of Mom and her baking phase), and having the day off so we could watch the special four times.
