Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about why the late Stan Lee’s cameo in “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is a real standout in that Sony Pictures Animation film. These two then talk about the possible impact that John Lasseter’s slow-motion exit from Disney & Pixar may have had on “The Incredibles 2” & “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.”


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

How it took a year and a half to put together a 30 second-long proof-of-concept for the look of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” and then another year and a half to animate the rest of that Sony Pictures Animation production.

How Walt Disney Pictures uses things like the songs from 1940’s “Pinocchio” to make its reboots different from the family-friendly films that other studios are making

The fun connection that Spider-Ham from “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” has to Mickey Mouse

How Rob Marshall’s decision to shoot some scenes for “Mary Poppins Returns” on location in London (rather than shooting all of them on a soundstage. Which is Walt did with the 1964 original) impacted the overall look of this sequel.

Why people in the entertainment industry are still struggling to come up with a proper way to describe Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” & “The Lion King”
