voters go to the polls in five states with several races posing a test to former president trump's influence especially in georgia where trump and former vice president mike pence are on opposite sides of the race. steve osunsami is tracking it all from atlanta. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, george. more than 850,000 votes in georgia are already in and this time, we're going to see those early vote totals post early in the evening. this is more than the early vote in 2018 and 2020, and this is despite new election rules that were inspired by unproven claims of fraud surrounding the 2020 election. most of the action in georgia's primary election is with the republicans and at the top of the ticket is current governor brian kemp. [ crowd chanting ] he's leading the polls despite being the one politician here who former president donald trump wants to remove the most. trump's former vice president was in georgia monday night taking sides with the governor. >> i mean, i can honestly say i was for brian kemp before it was cool. >> reporter: the election here is being seen as a test of just how important a voice donald
trump still has in the republican party. >> brian kemp is a turncoat. he is a coward. >> reporter: the former president has endorsed and campaigned for former senator david perdue calling kemp a sell-out for refusing to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in georgia where joe biden won. >> we have to win. we want to win and we have a governor that's done the worst job of any governor in probably decades on election integrity. >> reporter: the winner will face democrat stacey abrams in november. republican voters who say they still admire the former president, told us his wishes aren't everything. >> i think there's a lot of misunderstanding about republicans. like, not all republicans are -- >> like trump doesn't represent most republicans. >> reporter: president trump has also targeted george's secretary of state, incumbent brad raffensperger, who famously refused in this phone call to find the former president more votes. >> well, mr. president, the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong. >> reporter: one of
raffensperger's opponents is congressman jody hice who voted against certifying the 2020 election results. the winner of that race could play a consequential role in the next presidential election if georgia comes down to the wire again. congressman hice is one of nearly two dozen election deniers supported by donald trump who are running for secretary of state in 18 places. and importantly, these are positions that are mostly about running elections. tonight, football icon herschel walker is expected to win his primary for u.s. senate. that would mean that he will run against raphael warnock, an incumbent, in the fall, which in this state would pit two black men against each other in competition for the u.s. senate seat. george? >> and, steve, trump has been playing all across the country in these primaries and he's looming over other key primaries today as well. >> reporter: that's right, george.
in alabama, mo brooks is running for u.s. senate without president trump's support. he was a long-time supporter of the former president. in texas, george p. brooks is running for office without the former's president support. george? >> steve osunsami, thanks very much. robin? >> the birds are really chirping there, my goodness. now we have the latest on the war in ukraine. president zelenskyy urging world leaders to step up the pressure on russia even further to stop its aggression. our senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is there on the scene again for us in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. there are tentative indications that the battle in the east is not going so well for the ukrainians at the moment. the russians reportedly making incremental progress, taking some small villages in this area
while president zelenskyy again underlining that the fighting here in the country in donbas is most important part. this morning, as ukraine's president sounds the alarm on the dire situation on the front lines here in the east, another blow to the kremlin. as a top russian diplomat to the united nations in geneva resigns in protest saying, never have i been so ashamed of my country. referring to february the 24th, the beginning of the russian war on ukraine. boris bondarev says the ministry of foreign affairs has been marked with lies and unprofessionalism that's been increasing during his 20 years of service. now he says he needs to be able to look at himself in the mirror. this as president zelenskyy calls for additional military support as he says russian forces have 20 times the firepower in the donbas region. meanwhile, the west doubling down on military aid. the u.s. saying that 20 nations have committed to new security assistance packages to aid ukraine in its fight against the russian onslaught. >> many countries are donating critically needed artillery
ammunition, coastal defense systems and tanks and other armored vehicles. >> reporter: a military chaplain recording these videos driving through donbas as shelling goes off. the renewed russian offensive in the donbas leaving parts of the country devastated. when you hear the sound of the siren drifting through towns and villages around the country, and it's not just military targets that are being hit, but increasingly civilian ones causing loss of home and a loss of life. we spoke with a group of people forced to flee from severodonetsk, which is under constant bombardment. some comparing it to mariupol. helena tells me it's a horror. they're shelling everywhere. guys, it's three months since the war began, but there is still grit and determination in the country. for the ukrainians there is no plan b, but, michael, they need all the help they can get. >> they sure do. thank you so much, ian. now to president biden in
japan and the fallout from those remarks indicating he would use military force to defend taiwan from china, a major break with long-standing u.s. policy. let's go to our senior white house correspondent mary bruce who's traveling with the president. mary, the president attempted to clarify those comments overnight. >> reporter: yeah, michael, the president doing a bit of cleanup on his own comments, now insisting there has been no change in the long-standing policy known as strategic ambiguity which says that the u.s. would help taiwan defend itself if china attacked. now, president biden, of course, went much further than that yesterday saying that the u.s. would intervene militarily to defend taiwan. now, whether the president simply misspoke or was actually saying out loud what he really thinks, as we know biden does sometimes, it's really not clear. but this is, of course, the third time that the president has indicated that the u.s. military would respond to come to taiwan's defense. now, either way, all of this dominated much of the headlines here as the president wrapped up his trip to asia. he is now on his way back to washington headed home and this
really was a very symbolic trip, a chance for the president to reinforce key relationships, strengthen economic ties and really underscore his commitment to his goal to counter the rise of china even though so much of his attention has been dominated and will continue to be dominated by the war in ukraine. george? >> mary bruce, thanks. now to the global outbreak of monkeypox. as more cases are reported here in the u.s., the cdc announced that the government will release some vaccines from the national stockpile but only for a small number of people. stephanie ramos is at bellevue hospital where a patient is isolating. good morning, stephanie. >> reporter: george, good morning. a new york city resident has tested positive for the virus and they are isolating here at this hospital. now, the cdc says they are releasing some vaccines for a small number of people who have been exposed to monkeypox. now there are seven people in the u.s. now confirmed or presumed to have the virus in five states. the cdc says monkeypox can be transmitted through prolonged close contact and anyone can get it. now, this is not the first time monkeypox cases have been
reported here in the u.s. back in 2003, there was an outbreak from imported animals that likely infected 47 people. george? >> steve had the birds. you havethe traffic there, stephanie. tell us how quickly this is spreading. >> reporter: it is spreading pretty quickly and it is noisy out here. there are now about 250 confirmed or suspected cases of monkeypox in 18 different countries where the disease is not normally found, george. >> stephanie ramos, thanks. robin? george, we're going to turn to severe weather and at least six reported tornadoes touching down from texas to south carolina. our friend sam champion is in for ginger tracking that. the new threat right now, sam? >> some of those storms kept rolling through oklahoma this morning. there are flood warnings out but i want to show you this. look at this. i got to step back because that's one tornado. >> wow. >> so there were six reported tornadoes as you said. this one dropped into a field in lubbock and outside lubbock and say stayed there.3 didn't damage any buildings or people.
nothing but that. but look at that. they were warned that a tornado would pop into that area, but this is a monster. just guessing this is about a half mile across. luckily it didn't move into any occupied area. some storms in the carolinas did. south carolina, north carolina we're looking at those storms. these took trees down, about two inches of rain easy, water rescues with this and 60-mile-per-hour-plus winds. here's where the storming roll today. follow that front from lubbock into central texas we could have storms from texarkana to shreveport and, again, could be overnight long running storms. robin? >> all right, sam, thank you. michael? now to new developments in the urgent manhunt for the gunman who killed a passenger on the new york city subway. police have released surveillance images of the suspect and they recovered the gun they say was used in the shooting. janai norman joins us now with the latest. good morning, janai. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning. yeah, police have these posters up here outside of the subway station to help them find a 25-year-old brooklyn man with nearly 20 prior arrests, including an outstanding gun charge from last year, robbery and assault. that's who police say they want to talk to about sunday's deadly
subway shooting. police asking the public for help finding the gunman who opened fire on the new york city subway sunday killing a man in an unprovoked attack. >> it is the worst nightmare. it is unimaginable. a person walks up to you and shoots you for no reason. >> reporter: authorities looking to question this man, captured in grainy surveillance image, masked and with a red shirt and dark hoodie. witnesses reported seeing the gunman pacing in the last car of a manhattan bound train before suddenly opening fire killing 48-year-old daniel enriquez. this morning, we're learning more about enriquez, an analyst at goldman sachs, described by the company as a beloved son, brother, partner and friend who was on his way to brunch. his sister telling our station wabc -- >> this could be anybody. that's the part that's horrific. at 11:40 in the morning, this man got on the train with the intent to kill somebody. >> reporter: at this point last year, there were no subway shootings in new york city.
already this year, 14 people have been shot on the transit system including 10 people shot on a subway in brooklyn last month. and we've learned investigators say they have recovered the murder weapon. they say the shooter gave the gun to a homeless man who then sold it for $10. george? >> what a horrible story. janai, thanks very much. now to a viral video of an airport fight between a former nfl player and an airline employee. former player now facing charges. the worker has been fired and our transportation correspondent gio benitez has the story. >> reporter: this morning, united airlines firing this wheelchair attendant at newark airport after this viral video shows former nfl player brendan langley and the employee in a violent brawl. sources telling abc news it all started when that employee asked fr a wheelchair that langley was using to carry his luggage. the situation quickly escalating. langley eventually knocking the employee out, but the agent
getting back up to continue the fight. >> you want some more? you want some more? >> reporter: united telling abc news it has fired the employee after investigating the incident and reviewing video from a bystander. langley briefly played for the denver broncos. this morning, he is charged with simple assault. >> one thing that i know about brendan, he's one of the hardest working guys i ever met. he doesn't -- he's not a very malicious, mean person and, you know, i don't know much about the situation so i can't really speak on everything, but i just want him to be safe. i love him and i hope everything works out in the end. >> reporter: this comes as nearly 2.5 million americans are set to fly each day over the memorial day weekend. the faa saying unruly passenger numbers continue to fall but still more than 1,300 incidents were already reported this year. and abc news has learned that langley is back in canada where he plays professional football. his team says it's looking into
the matter to learn all of the details. robin? >> such an ugly fight. all right, gio, thank you. now to soaring gas prices reaching another record high just as tens of millions of people are set to hit the road for memorial day weekend. kaylee hartung is live at a gas station in miami. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. at this gas station in miami beach it'll cost you $5.60 for a gallon of regular unleaded. that's not quite as bad as it is in california where gas is over $6 everywhere you look, but it's worse than new york where it is averaging nearly $5 a gallon. look, the bottom line is, no matter where or when you are trying to fill up you will feel pain at the pump. gas in all 50 states is over $4 a gallon right now. with the national average at a record high of $4.59 but despite the crippling costs most drivers are still filling up. aaa is forecasting nearly 35 million people are going to get in their cars this weekend and drive more than 50 miles from home. this is the kickoff to driving
season, memorial day weekend, right? this is when gas demand is at its highest all year, so no doubt the beaches here are going to be packed and the price to get here will be steep. robin? >> consumers want to know any chance, any chance that prices will fall before taking to the roads for our getaways? >> reporter: yeah, well, robin, considering that gas prices haven't fallen in nearly a month experts say do not expect to catch a break in this next week. we are heading towards the most expensive memorial day weekend on record with gas a whole dollar more expensive than it was at its previous high in 2014. robin? >> okay, kaylee, thank you. >> a lot of people may be staying home. >> maybe. >> sometimes you need a break at home. how about that? now we're going to go to a golden game for the st. louis cardinals. take a look. paul goldschmidt gets up at bat with the bases loaded. bottom of the tenth, bam. walkoff grand slam. of course, the fans and his teammates go absolutely wild to
celebrate the 7-3 victory over the toronto blue jays. he was 0 for 4 in the game until that big moment. >> he was? >> yes. he was on a hot streak, he's driven in 22 runs in his last 12 games. >> not bad at all. >> having a great season. coming up, a surprise move in the johnny depp/amber heard trial. plus depp's former girlfriend kate moss expected to appear. dan abrams will break it down. and a woman accused of a love triangle murder of a pro cyclist. what her father is saying and you'll hear it only on "gma." but first, back to sam. >> we talked about the tornadoes. let's talk about the heavy rain, these storms had both. more than 2 inches in 30 minutes in parts of this area in north carolina. video was taken just about where that was recorded as wel. so watch the trash can float, watch everything go by. still flooding is likely with some of these storms. i'm going to look at this area also into texas. we'll break it up into two zones even though there's six states. carolinass, yes, likely again for you and this will go from wichita all the way towards shreveport so could have flooding going on from

depp's case ahead of a final decision about calling depp back to the stand. amy here with the latest. good morning. >> good morning, george. the civil trial is timed with each side allowed 61 hours to present their case. amber heard's team has less than five hours left to wrap things up and depp's team has more time left and a list of several rebuttal witnesses expected including his ex-girlfriend, supermodel kate moss. this morning, an abrupt change in tactics in the high-profile court case between amber heard and johnny depp. after initial reports that we'd see depp take the stand again, heard's legal team opting to keep him off it at least for now. a source close to heard telling abc news the 58-year-old actor would be as relevant to their case as a bicycle to a fish adding everything depp has testified up to this point has been irrelevant to the heart of this case. >> they thought about calling him. they decided not to. probably because he's very good. he's very personable and there is a chance he would woo the jury over to his side.
>> reporter: those who took the stand monday included an orthopedic surgeon who examined medical records claiming heard severed depp's finger after flinging a bottle of vodka at him, but found the medical evidence to be inconclusive. >> does mr. depp's description of what happened line up with the undisputed photographic evidence that you've reviewed? >> no. >> reporter: a psychiatrist testifying that depp shows signs of a substance abuse disorder while music executive kathryn arnold claims heard suffered financially because of defamatory statements from depp. >> her publicist's company was harassed. any kind of movie that she was related to got negative attention from the social media world which made it difficult to work with amber on any level. >> reporter: and less than a week after actress ellen barkin's taped deposition was played in court, recalling out of control behavior by depp during their relationship in the '90s, kate moss expected to testify via web cam. the 48-year-old supermodel referenced by heard on the stand
weeks ago eliciting this reaction from depp's team. >> they wanted to bring kate moss to testify that no abuse occurred in her relationship with johnny depp. but johnny depp isn't permitted to bring witnesses to bolster his own character, his own personality, unless the other party brings it up. >> reporter: in a 2018 op-ed heard claims she was a survivor of domestic abuse and while she didn't name depp he says his career and reputation suffered. suing for $50 million calling her allegations a hoax prompting heard to countersue for double the amount. now, heard's team could still call depp back to the stand. we should know that later today. the trial is set for closing arguments starting friday and then it is in the jury's hands with millions hanging in the balance. guys? >> okay, amy, thanks very much. let's bring in our chief legal analyst dan abrams. we just heard from amy on whether depp will be called back to the stand. why do you think heard's team appears to be second-guessing that? >> first, we got to ask the question, were they really going
to call him? i wonder whether it was a strategy to make him think that they were going to call him to the stand. but if this really was a change in strategy on their part, i think it was just too risky. i think the case going down to johnny depp taking the stand again, it's just too much for amber heard's team to call him and take that chance i think. >> we also heard in amy's report about kate moss and that depp's team is prepared to have her testify. you saw his team's reaction. explain why they're so -- why they want her on the stand. >> because she can provide something ordinarily you wouldn't get in a trial which is someone saying, he's a good guy. this sort of stuff doesn't happen. typically you're not allowed to bring in just sort of good character evidence where someone says, oh, this sort of thing didn't happen to me. that's not typically admissible but because amber heard specifically mentioned the kate moss supposed incident, now johnny depp's team can call her and she can testify about more than just did that actual incident happen, but will be able to leave something with the jury potentially that says, huh,
not every relationship johnny depp had was like this one. >> and on monday they touched on amber heard's $100 million countersuit. could she win that? >> i think it's a real long shot. i think what the countersuit does is, it offers jurors an opportunity to let neither of them win potentially here, and they say, look, you know, johnny depp doesn't win this, amber heard doesn't win this. it's sort of a compromise. if there was no countersuit, it would just feel like a johnny depp win for him to, you know, to not lose the case. >> you said from the beginning this is a tough trial for johnny depp's team. what does he need to do to turn it around in the final hours? >> you know, i think it's going to be really hard as a legal matter for him to be able to do it. i don't know that there's going to be a major specific issue he could do in the final hours. >> dan abrams, thank you as always. now we're going to turn to the texas yoga instructor wanted for murder. her father is now speaking out and our chief national correspondent matt gutman joins us from austin with that.
good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, michael. i spoke to that father last night. mike armstrong is shattered. he said his daughter is not capable of committing the crime she's accused of, murdering a love rival in a fit of jealous rage, but there is one thing that he and authorities agree upon at this point. there are a lot of unanswered questions here. >> we love you, katie and we are going to figure this out. >> reporter: this morning, the father of missing murder suspect kaitlin armstrong speaking exclusively with abc news. >> i know her. i know how she thinks and i know what she believes and i know that she just would not do something like this. i know her. i know her. >> reporter: he says his daughter is not capable of committing the crime she's charged with, shooting her alleged romantic rival, rising cycling star moriah wilson. >> that is what they believe. i know she did not do this. there are a lot of unanswered questions. >> reporter: according to court documents, the day after
wilson's murder police questioned armstrong confronting her with this surveillance video showing a dark suv matching her vehicle driving away from the home. wilson was found with a deadly gunshot wound. now that's the camera that captured that jeep cherokee driving up the alley. minutes later those shots were fired and wilson was killed. what's surprising here is that none of the neighbors here said they heard anything. when detectives told armstrong the video made things not look too good, they wrote in the report she nodded her head up and down as if in agreement. that's when investigators said she asked to end the interview and was allowed to leave. by the next morning her social media accounts were reportedly wiped clean according to the arrest affidavit and she vanished. the u.s. marshals joining the urgent search for her and say she may still be in the austin area. >> she was a realtor. she was a yoga teacher. so she had personal relationships here in the austin area. we hope that eventually if she
had some type of plan, that maybe she would reach out to those associates and we would receive a tip based upon that. >> reporter: now, mike armstrong said he last spoke to his daughter about five days ago. he knew where she was then. now, the u.s. marshals say they have about three to ten agents working on this at any given time. they say the key is finding that jeep grand cherokee. guys? >> all right, matt, we appreciate that. ahead on "gma," memorial day as we know coming up and our becky worley has gone back to nature to find the best deals. how ya doing? >> reporter: robin, good morning. i'm doing great. i mean, whether you're camping in the backyard with your s'mores or you're ascending everest, there are deals to discover this weekend, including on one critical home item that hasn't seen discounts let alone much inventory for a year. so camp out during the break and we'll give you all that info when we come back. we'll give you all that info when we come back. people with darker complexions have always struggled

we're back now with those memorial day sales. this weekend is not just the time to have a barbecue but a great time to buy a barbecue. although we're living through a period of sky-high inflation, becky worley says there are still deals out there to be had. good morning to you, becky. >> reporter: robin, good morning. these sales weekends, holiday
weekends are more important than ever, and shopping early like now may be your best chance to get a discount on the things you really need. this morning, a look at the state of sales as we head into a holiday weekend. first, the bad news. >> memorial day sales won't be as good as they were last year and so that's just because of inflation. so the things that are going to be short in demand is going to be anything that's outside. so your grills, your lawn mowers, your patio furniture, those are short in supply. >> reporter: his advice, if you see a summer item you need now, and it has even a small discount, grab it. for example, at home depot this nexgrill propane gas grill is $100 off. at lowe's these patio chairs are 50% off. and that leads to the good news about supply chain issues. appliances which were hard to come by earlier this year have started to arrive and so there is some discounting. like this washing machine at best buy, it's $370 off. >> sale items are going to be lrge appliances -- your refrigerators, washer/dryers, dishwashers.
right now retailers want to get the old models off their lot, off their sales floor and bring in the new models. >> reporter: tech also with a little price movement. airpods on sale at amazon for $149. that's $30 off. it's a good deal if you have to get it for graduation or father's day. we're also seeing some discounts on clothing. j. crew with select kids' clothes up to 50% off and the gap also discounting 40% off your entire purchase. but with base prices still high, the advice remains the same. if it's a purchase you don't need this summer, hold off. now, another place where we're seeing a lot of discounts outdoor gear, specifically rei has their anniversary sale so 20% off of any one item for members. that could be a big ticket item and that membership costs just $30 for a lifetime, robin. that's worth its weight in gold. >> it is. i can see that you're in your glory right now, becky. let's get specific.
let's get specific on deals. what are you seeing, my friend? >> reporter: okay, some of the things i've seen, mountain biking shoes like these izumis, $124, that's 64% off. headlamps, this black diamond is $29. that's 25% off and then, we've got this tent here, a similar one, a six-person tent for $236. that's 25% off and i'm telling you, camping might be the cheapest deal of the summer. have you seen airfare and hotel prices? i'm getting out my s'mores. >> thank you. you got some great deals there, becky. you look the part. you look the part. >> she has too much fun. i love it. coming up next, we have our "play of the day." >> we're going to have some fun too. >> yeah. too. >> yeah. commanding a room, being your own biggest fan. who said you could do that? say no to settling, no to compromising. yes to getting all of the above.

former senator david perdue, calling kemp a sell-out for refusing to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in georgia where joe biden won. the winner will face democrat stacey abrams in november. president trump has also targeted brad raffensperger, who famously refused to find the president more votes. >> mr. president, the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong. >> reporter: one of his opponents is congressman jody hice who is running here. congressman jody hice is running against raffensperger, one of two dozen election deniers kupted by donald trump who are running for secretary of state
in 18 places. this is important because these are offices that mostly about running elections. george? >> especially looking ahead to 2024. steve, thanks very much. michael? now to the new study about kids and screen time. researchers showing how limiting screen time can have tremendous benefits on their physical activity. abc news medical contributor dr. darien sutton is here with us and, you know, dr. sutton, many kids spend a lot of time on the screens, with the pandemic that only increased the time which is understandable but it's still concerning. so tell us about the study. >> so the study is from the journal of the american medical association and looks to understand the benefit of reducing screen time in children. we know on average children spend around four to six hours a day on their screens. that is not a good outcome, me looking at my screen right now while doing this so apropos. [ laughter ] and what they looked to find is whether or not decreasing that screen time was associated with either being sedentary and staying on the couch or getting physically active. in this study they reduced it to less than three hours a week and they found children were more physically active by more than 45 minutes a day, more than five hours a week.
>> they want to reduce screen time. a lot of parents watching are screaming, help! how will we make that happen? we'll ask you how can they take away the screens and not have tantrums or arguments or both? >> well, you know, it's a very difficult task. i'd say, first off, be realistic. the american academy of pediatrics suggests children should get no more than one to two hours a day. now, that is a difficult task. i have some tips up here. first off, adjust the settings on your phone. many don't realize but the phone can have apps which allow you to avoid those distracting apps. if it doesn't have that easy setting you can download focus apps and do phone-free zones and screen-free times to make it more automatic. create a central charging station to plug in all your devices and i say all of us because we all have work to do. i checked my screen time this morning. it was abysmal so i won't share it but also practicing what you preach is really important. >> that last one is so hard. >> yeah. >> don't have your phone at the dinner table. i'm just saying. don't have your phone at the dinner table. all right, dr. sutton, thank you. >> thank you.

disney and lucasfilm are trying to do and what we're trying to do is we're trying to protect the experience for the fans. the first time they see it, we want them to have the best experience they can, so they want to keep everything a secret and the longer they can keep something until you announce it, the better, i guess, for them. but for us, it's a long time, people asking, would you play obi-wan kenobi again? and i had to go, well, if disney wanted to do something, i'd be happy to do it. trying not to lie but not really tell the truth. >> you know what? let's not keep the fans waiting any longer. let's take a look at a clip. here we go. >> there's more to life than your farm, owen. he needs to see that, there's a whole galaxy out there. >> i'm asking you to leave us alone, ben. i mean it. >> is he okay? >> you don't care if he's okay. you care if he's showing. >> he's my responsibility, owen. >> i'm his uncle. >> we talked about this.
when the time comes, he must be trained. >> like you trained his father? >> oooh. >> uncle owen. >> worth the wait. i can't believe it's been almost two decades since return of the sith. what's it like being back in the universe? >> it really was fun. we have a brilliant director, debra cho, really a talent. and that, working with her, and working in the new technology, and we have these amazing, huge lcd screen dome that goes round the stage, so if we're playing a scene in the desert, well, it's the desert everywhere you look. there's no green screen, no blue screen anymore, which is really a game changer for us. it was really fun. i really, really enjoyed it. >> we can tell. well, you know you have fans everywhere so we went to social media. we wanted them to ask some questions. and so, we have one from steven, who wanted to know, did you and hayden get to have any input on where you wanted your characters to go emotionally in the series since you both know your characters so well?
>> yes. disney came to me years ago and asked -- because i was asked in interviews, would i play obi-wan kenobi again? and i said, yes, i would like to. i think there must be a good story between the last one i did, "revenge of the sith" and "a new hope" with alec guinness. they said, do you mean it? would you be happy to play him again? i said, yeah. we started talking then and i sort of -- i wasn't -- i didn't work with the writers but i read all the different variation, all the different iterations of the script going forward, so i was asked my opinion. i wasn't, like, working with the writers, but i was giving my two cents worth, i suppose. >> makes sense that you would be. >> yeah. it's nice to be -- you know, it's nice because, yeah, i played him for three movies and i know what he feels like from my perspective, i guess. >> which is important. and we have another fan question from cassie who asks, would you like to reunite with natalie portman? might she make a surprise
appearance in "obi-wan kenobi"? put you on the spot with this one. >> i don't know. you would have to ask -- first of all, you would have to ask natalie if she would like to do that. but i always loved working with her. and we worked together in an interesting time of our lives with hayden and natalie and i. we made the -- natalie and i made the first one, i think, in '96 or '97, so a long time ago, and then hayden came in, episode ii and iii so we're all young, passionate actors, and you know, it's -- it was lovely to work with her. so, who knows? i've worked with her since. i did a film with her called "jane got a gun" some years ago. >> you're getting a lot of practice at not answering these questions. >> being honest but he wasn't -- yeah, i don't know. i'm as confused as -- >> he didn't lie. >> we have an audience over there. looking over here, going, how do you do that so -- we'll get to
you, jess. thank you, ewan. thank you so much. you're quite talented. and thank you for bringing it back and wanting to do it again. because sometimes people distance themselves and say, no, i've done that. >> yeah. i -- i'm really happy to have done it again. i think i've sort of felt over the last five, ten years, the warmth for our wheprequels that made and at the time, we didn't feel that. but the generation we made them for, the children who watched those films, they really love them. our "star wars" films are their "star wars" films, so now that i feel that, it's nice to make something like this and -- for fans who are going to -- -- to make people happy is a nice thing. >> you always do that. thank you so much. and the first two episodes of "obi-wan kenobi" debut this friday on disney plus. who's coming up next? who's coming up next? could it be jennifer? yes.
♪ i got a feeling ♪ ♪ i got a feeling ♪ >> we're back now with oscar-winning actress jennifer connolly. she's starring in one of the most hotly anticipated movies, "top gun: maverick." the trailer for the movie has already been evantubehd more than 24 million times. >> wow. >> yeah, surprised you, huh? >> that's impressive.
>> welcome to the show, jennifer. great to see you. we know the movie, you just had the premier at the royal premier in london, and you posted a throwback from when you were there in 1986 for your movie, "labyrinth." was it a little less stressful this time around? >> you know, i have to say, they're so impressive, i think, kate and william, who i met. the first time i was there in 1986, i met william's mother, diana, princess diana. they were so impressive, i think i forgot to be intimidated. they're so disarmingly gracious and warm, so it was really a great evening. >> and i want to get right into "top gun: maverick" as well because i absolutely adored this movie. you're fantastic in it. you play ctom cruise's love interest but you two had never met before this film, never done a film together. what was it like shooting this film together? because when you watch it, the chemistry is immediate. >> thank you. you know, i love the idea of their relationship.
my character's name is penny benjamin, who's mentioned in the original "top gun" movie so these characters have known each other a long time so it was a fun place to start their relationship. they've clearly known each other for many years. so we could kind of hit the ground running. he's just a great actor so he makes it just a joy working with him. >> and "top gun" is about airplanes. you don't like flying, though? >> it's not my favorite thing to do. >> but you -- but tom took you up in a plane. >> he did. it was an extraordinary experience. not only a plane, a p-51, which is like a world war ii plane, and it was pretty extraordinary. we were flying, skimming the tops of the mountains and there was a jet right off our wing that was filming us, so it was kind of definitely flying unlike any flying i've done before. >> were you nervous at any point? >> he's such a good poiilot. and he's to meticulous that it was therapeutic for me as someone who doesn't love to fly, to do that kind of flying with
someone like him, i could just enjoy it. >> you don't fly but you do sail in the movie and we're going to take a look at a clip of just that. let's check it out. >> little rougher than i was expecting. >> you don't say. >> depower the sails. >> what does that mean? >> you're supposed to be in the navy. >> i don't sailboats, penny. i land on them. >> yeah. i love that. i don't sail boats, i land on them. but you took sailing lessons but i heard you got help from your kids. >> yeah, actually, well, i was really worried that, you know, in that context, with the wind and the sailing, there's a lot to think about out there. it was very strong wind and it was a lot to manage. i was worried i might forget my lines, which is not something i normally dwell on, but to practice, i was like, you know what? i'm just going to -- i stood on my coffee table and in my living room, and i said to my kids, i'm
going to run my lines, do anything you can to distract me, throw water on me, blow on me, whatever you need to do. because i know that the moment i get out there, everything is going to just, like, leave my mind, you know? so that's how i practiced. >> and that's actually a pretty intense sailing scene. now that your kids -- your kids have seen the movie, and they know they've helped you prepare. what do they think of it? >> they had so much fun. i had to say, like, all the -- my kids loved it. you know, i've seen it three, four times now with an audience, and every time i've been, people are just having a great time, like, you know, yelling at the screen and clapping and crying and i think it's a really -- it's just a fun celebratory kind of movie, you know? >> i'm one of those people. >> you are? >> i was laughing, i was crying, i was screaming. i was proud. i was everything. >> it's fun. it's a fun time, and i think it's, like, i know it was a long time waiting for it to come out but i feel like it's a great
time now. i think people are ready to have good experiences together in a movie theater, and the movie's really satisfying, and people are walking out feeling happy. >> well, it is more than worth the wait. i'll be the first to attest that. so, thank you. >> thank you. >> always appreciate it. great seeing you. >> great to see you. >> everybody, check out "top gun: maverick." it's in theaters on friday. do yourself a favor. it's a great time to go this weekend. now we're going to go to sam. >> and now i hope you don't mind if we take a second to tell you about a very special episode of tam rin hall. when their health symptoms weren't taken seriously by their doctors. the filmmakers of the award-winning documentary "aftershock" expose the disproportionate number of black women who die due to childbirth complications. checkdrew: sunshine today, hot a

♪ ♪ we are celebrating aanhpi heritage all month long and this morning, we're checking out three different asian cultures and their take on the comfort food. i'm here with esther choi. sam is holding it down with charles chen, and larry is there with chef jess tom. welcome, all of you. and i'm going to start with you, chef esther. tell us about this korean dish that we're going to try right here. take us through it. >> okay. so this is probably the most iconic korean noodle dish. it's what the kings and queens used to eat. and it's so special to me because this is one of the first dishes my grandmother taught me how to make. it's made with glass noodle, some vegetables, and usually beef but it can be seafood, any
protein you want. so, i'm just going to dress this a little bit so you can taste it. but the dressing is usually made with soy sauce, sesame oil, some garlic, sugar, and then stir fried with the sweet potato noodles. >> so, sweet potato noodles, how common is that in a korean dish? >> it's pretty common. they're like these glass noodles that are slightly chewy and really delicious, and a lot of times, gluten free, so it's a great option for gluten sensitive. >> people say, glass noodles because it looks like glass. you can see right through it. >> and you got to try some over here but i'm going to slightly dress it. >> give me a little bit of that and while i try this -- you're already eating. how's it going, sam? >> it's great because charles and i are just checking in. in l.a., a lot of times, celebrity chef, but spent your time in new york. >> yes, yes, yes. >> while i swallow this, charles, tell me. this is a dish that's inspired by your -- it's a taiwanese
dish. >> this is my grandma's favorite dish to make, beef stew noodles. it's so flavorful. they're compact, different flavors, star anise in there, fennel, cumin. >> it's gorgeous to look at. >> i'm going to top it off with cilantro and mustard green is a must for this dish. this is like sauerkraut. >> when i do noodles, they clump together. what's michael doing? what happened? what'd i miss? >> a lot of moozales. noodles. >> this is -- so, this is whole wheat, 100% whole wheat noodles and i have a tip. when you're cooking this at home, shock it, cook it until it's al dente and then shock it in cold water. >> that will keep them from clumping together. while i enjoy all of this, lara, what's going on? >> very excited to talk with jess tom. this is the fan favorite, i think, a classic chinese dish,
such a comfort food, and you have a veggie take on lo mein noodles. >> we're combining a classic chinese noodle dish with a classic chinese sauce, ginger scallion sauce, which makes everything so much better. the trick with this, it's so easy. you mix the sauce, just like soy sauce, sesame oil, chili paste, done, that's easy. saw saute the vegetables, and whatever you have in the fridge, you can put in your noodle dish. it's so adaptable. >> the question that i have is, what do you do if you can't find the noodles that you want? like i know you're pretty specific about your noodle choice. >> don't let perfect be the enemy of the good. everything in here is so awesome. if you don't have lo mein noodles, you can use spaghetti, linguini, soba, any of those noodles are going to be so good. >> it's really accessible to everyone. >> absolutely. >> and the other question is the wok. how important is it to do this
in a wok? >> a wok is great but again, if you don't have it, the most important thing is that you have a large cooking surface that can get really hot. it needs to get hot, and it needs to be big enough to mix everything in there. >> yeah. agreed. i'm going to taste this. guys, have you tasted all three? >> yeah. >> this is not a competition. everyone is a winner. >> everybody is a winner. >> sam, that is a beautiful technique. >> you got to get down into the bowl because if you don't, it's all over you, right? so you really -- right. >> i got to stretch before i eat so i can get down that low. and everybody at home, this is really delicious and you can get all these recipes, just point your phone at the qr code on your screen or go to our website, "good morning america."com. stay right there. we're going to finish eating and we'll be right back. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> that was a great recipe. thank you for bringing it. meet a future mom, a first-time mom and a seasoned pro. this mom's one step closer to their new mini-van!
