Drew Taylor & Jim Hill talk about 2019’s nominees for Best Animated Feature and Best Animated Short Film. They also talk about how “Zootopia” being the highest grossing animated film in Chinese cinematic history eventually led to Shanghai Disneyland getting a new land built around these characters


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

How Mamoru Hosoda’s “Mirai” will likely soon become the film that parents turn to when they’re dealing with toxic cases of sibling rivalry

Why picking “The Place Where Lost Things Go” as the song from “Mary Poppins Returns” ‘s score to push during awards season may have been a poor choice on Disney’s part

The lessons that were learned from Hong Kong Disneyland’s Space Mountain that were then applied to how rides, shows & attractions were staged at Shanghai Disneyland

Why Shanghai Disneyland has a Mickey Avenue, rather than a Main Street, U.S.A.

Where in Hollywood you can go to see three of Pixar’s Sparkshorts (i.e., that animation studio’s new “experimental storytelling initiative”) up on the big screen
