here. Where did this university come from? Yeah, okay, this is my first question, where did it come from? Because this is now, this is the third movie that actually takes place in Halloweentown of the four. The 3rd movie in the franchise takes place in the human realm. So now we've got A 3rd version of the town which looks more like the version from the first movie, but not quite and totally different from the version in the second movie, that doesn't look anything like anything we have seen in terms of Halloween Town on a map or an illustration or what have you. But this university on the map that they show you at the beginning of the movie by Lake Erie by Lake Erie is set almost right behind Town hall and the big Jackal Lantern. Where did this come from? Why have we not heard of it? Why have we not seen it before? I don't know where it comes from, Right part of what baffles me to this day is that in the 2nd and 3rd films, you know you're building upon this franchise, but so little of them actually took place in the town and you really get farther and farther away from the first film. So now we're back and it completely undoes everything from the first film on top of everything else because this whole time marty was supposed to finish high school and then train with her grandmother for a year and I was really hoping that even though they changed the actress, they were going to follow through on that one thing. And not only is marty not training with her Sophie is instead and we've got this college that comes out of nowhere. The other thing that it violates from the first film is that it's called, Which university, But any kind of magical creature is allowed in. Okay, fine. Taking a page out of harry potter's book I guess. But what really doesn't make sense to me is that Halloween town was this hidden world and it was a normal world, just hiding in plain sight and they had normal jobs and we got to see all of that play out in the first one when they go to the barber, when they go to the dentist. So why is there a specialized, which school? Why isn't it just college? Yeah, lot of that is negated the premise of the colleges negated when they're supposed to go through a formal training because it's not just marty, it's supposed to be all of them. So now basically you don't have to do the training anymore. If you go to college
