Drew Taylor starts off this week’s episode by sharing what he learned at the junket for DreamWorks Animation’s “Abominable” (which arrives in theaters on September 27th). He then shares a sit-down that he did with Academy Award-winner Hans Zimmer, who then talks about what it was like to work on both the 1994 animated version of Disney’s “The Lion King” as well as that studio’s photo-real remake of that film


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

Whether officials at DreamWorks Animation were concerned – on the heels of “Smallfoot” & “Missing Link” – of being the third film built around the Yeti / Bigfoot to be released theatrically in the past year

How the domestic box office numbers for “Toy Story 4” are now almost eerily paralleling what “Toy Story 3” made during the Summer of 2010 during this exact same point in that Pixar production’s theatrical run

Now that Apple has the exclusive right to produce new animated content featuring the Peanuts characters, who’ll be the star of the very first show (which will be available for streaming this Fall)?

How the memory of losing his father at the age of 6 made Han Zimmer better plugin with the emotions that are featured in the storyline for Disney’s “The Lion King”

Why veteran producers like Jerry Bruckheimer & acclaimed filmmakers like Ridley Scott loves to have Hans Zimmer score their movies
