Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by sharing their concerns about the December 2019 release date that Disney selected for Blue Sky Studios’ “Spies in Disguise.” They also use the upcoming 10th anniversary of the release of Pixar’s “Up” as an excuse to look back at this Pete Docter movie


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

Why “Uglydolls” under-performance probably has more to do with “Endgame” ‘s continued strength at the box office than it does with the overall quality of this STX Entertainment film

How The Walt Disney Company has known about its “Siamese Cat Song” problem for years but only just now is using Disney +’s live-action version of “Lady & the Tramp” to finally address this issue

Just how old was Charles F. Muntz supposed to be in “Up”? More to this point, how Pixar’s story team initially propose that this world-famous explorer (who had to be at least 30 back in the 1930s) keep his somewhat youthful vigor?

Why Walt Disney Animation Studios decided to stick with a long Thanksgiving Day weekend release date for all of its future films now through November of 2022

The alternate title that Walt Disney Animation Studios was considering for “Dumbo” prior to its October 1941 release


released May 14, 2019
