Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off by discussing how Emma Watts’ decision to step down as head of 20th Century could potentially impact Blue Sky Studios. They also talk about how the series finale of “Bojack Horseman” sort of syncs up perfectly with everything that’s going on in & Around LA right at this moment.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

How long Walt Disney Pictures has been toying with the idea of producing a live-action reboot of that studio’s hand-drawn version of “Pinocchio”

What did Elton John reportedly do to help ensure that “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” would win the Best Original Song award at this year’s Golden Globes

Why folks who miss WDW’s Discovery Island (i.e., the 11.5-acre zoological exhibit that used to operate out on WDW’s Bay lake) need to watch Walt Disney Productions’ July 1976 release, “Treasure of Matecumbe”

How did the Imagineers make sure that the lines to meet Mickey were always short/manageable when Mickey’s Birthdayland first opened at WDW’s Magic Kingdom back in June of 1988

What the “Frozen II” story team originally wanted to have happen to the Kingdom of Arendelle at the end of this Chris Buck / Jennifer Lee movie
