And there’s just been, from the moment I think the first images these guys dropped, everyone was like, ‘Wow, they got it exactly right.’ You can just tell the tone and the heart of it, so just seeing the way people already embraced it without having seen a minute of it, it’s been breathtaking.”

Vaughan will speak to me? I’d be curious about adapting this or serving to adapt this. Is there any manner?” Not talking about me being Grandfather, that had nothing to do with it.
