Immediately after they finished doing a live recording of their "Fine Tooning" podcast at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort earlier this month, Drew Taylor & Jim Hill began taking questions from listeners who attended that event. The topics that got touched on in this off-the-cuff session include how "Winnie-the-Pooh" 's July 2011 release date helped kill off 2-D animation at Walt Disney Animation Studios.


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

How Walt Disney Animation Studios isn't making the best use of legendary animators like Mark Henn & Eric Goldberg

Why the financial press is willing to overlook how "A Wrinkle in Time" and "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms" under-performed at the box office

What actually factors into Disney's decision-making process when it comes to developing new parades & fireworks shows for the Parks

How "Frozen The Musical" was built to tour, rather than a long run on Broadway
The role that "The Bear in the Big Blue House" played in The Walt Disney Company's decision to acquire the Muppets back in February 2004

The battle between studio execs (who eventually want movies to be available in all formats at the exact same time) and filmmakers (who want to preserve the communal theatrical experience)

Why "The Walking Dead" executive producer Greg Nicotero almost had a run-in with a TSA agent
