Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing Pixar veteran Darla Anderson’s decision to sign a multi-year deal with Netflix. They then discuss why it took Disney Studios nearly two decades to produce a full length animated version of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan”


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

The role that John Lasseter & Co. wanted Mattel’s Barbie to play in the first “Toy Story” film

The movie that Wernher von Braun reportedly asked Ward Kimball to help make for the Pentagon back in the mid-1950s

The three picture deal that Disney execs offered Aardman Animation after “The Wrong Trousers” took home the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film back in March of 1994

How “Cinderella” provided the seed movie from Disneyland back in the early 1950s but is one of the only animated features not represented in that theme park on opening day

How the under-new-management version of DreamWorks Animation currently has sequels to three of the previous regime’s hits (i.e., 2013’s “The Croods,” 2016’s “Trolls,” & 2017’s “Boss Baby”) in the works
