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

What’s significant about the way John Hench painted Mickey Mouse back in 1978 for that Disney character’s official 50th anniversary portrait

Which character from “Star Wars Rebels” made an appearance in the first episode of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” (albeit in a far younger form than we’re used to see him in)

When did Alan Rudolph originally hope to shoot his feature film version of “The Far Side” comic strip

Which three Disney-related projects did Craig Gillespie direct prior to “Cruella”
