Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about Drew’s conversation with Enrico Casarosa, the director of Pixar’s “Luca.” Jim then shares a story about Jon Provost (of “Timmy & Lassie” fame)’s encounter with the original “King Kong” stop motion puppets


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

How did veteran Disney producer Don Hahn make sure that the new footage which was created for Epcot’s “Beauty & the Beast” sing-along show would then fit in seamlessly with scenes culled from the original 1991 film

Which division of The Walt Disney Company actively pushed in the early 1990s for a new Mickey Mouse short to be produced where this corporate symbol would then be wacky & out there

How did the production of “Runaway Brain” effectively pave the way for the style of remote production that was used to complete Disney’s “Raya and the Last Dragon” & “Encanto”

Which star of “Marvel’s The Avengers” will be voicing the title character in Pixar’s “Lightyear”

Who will be directing “Ciao Alberto,” the Pixar-produced short that will pick up where “Luca” left off
