Ocean County Natives Make Anime-Style Netflix Series

SEASIDE PARK, NJ — Somebody once asked George Lucas how to break into the movie business. The “Star Wars” visionary simply said, “Somehow.” Charley Parlapanides remembered that moment as he and his brother reflected on going from Seaside Park to Central Regional schools to Hollywood.

Netflix will release Charley and Vlas Parlapanides’s anime-style series “Blood of Zeus” on Oct. 27. The program revolves around Heron, a commoner on the outskirts of ancient Greece, discovering secrets of his past and trying to save heaven and earth.

Watch the trailer below:

Influences for the series include sagas of epic worlds with otherworldly characters — “The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Wars” and Greek mythology. But it wouldn’t have been possible without the brothers’ humble, small-town, Greek-American upbringings.

“We grew up in the Jersey Shore — immigrant family who believed in working hard and getting educated,” Charley said. “We felt we had to

Let’s face it: winter is coming. But if there’s anything that can comfort us about shorter days and more time spent inside, it’s the anticipation surrounding the release of season four of Netflix’ “The Crown” on November 15.

The new season will introduce viewers to a new love interest of Prince Charles (played by Josh O’Connor): Lady Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin. And over the weekend, the network fueled even more excitement about the upcoming season with its release of the first photos of actor Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana, on the royal’s wedding day in her iconic wedding dress.

In addition to her humanitarian work, dedication to her children, and graceful composure in nearly every setting, Diana was known for her unique style sensibility, which evolved from demure to confident over the course of her all-too-short life. And while she had

The Crown: Netflix releases first look at Emma Corrrin in Princess Diana’s iconic wedding dress

It’s one of the most iconic fashion moments and now fans of The Crown have seen the first glimpse of Princess Diana’s replica wedding gown.

Ahead of the release of season four of the series, Netflix has shared a preview of actor Emma Corrin as Princess Diana in the dress by Emmy award-wining costume designer Amy Roberts.

“A first glimpse of Princess Diana’s wedding dress. Emmy award-winning costume designer Amy Roberts wanted to capture the same spirit and style of David and Elizabeth Emanuel’s original design, without creating a replica for Emma Corrin,” the caption said.

The Welsh fashion designers created Princess Diana’s original gown for her 1981 marriage to Prince Charles.

Netflix has published the first still of newcomer Emma Corrin in Princess Diana’s wedding dress in Season 4 of The Crown.

In the image Corrin stands in a white, ruffled dress that clearly took inspiration from Diana’s famed 1981 wedding gown. Emmy award-winning costume designer Amy Roberts emulated the famous David & Emanuel design without creating a reproduction.

The royal drama returns on November 15 and will feature Emma Corrin as Princess Diana, who becomes romantically entwined with and eventually marrying Prince Charles. It’s a breakthrough role for the actress, who has a startling resemblance to the late princess.

Netflix also published images of Colman as the Queen and Helena Bonham Carter’s Princess Margaret. Produced by Left Bank Pictures and created by Peter Morgan, Season 4 wrapped in March and it will be the current cast’s final
