Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by talking about what Bob Iger revealed about Disney’s 2006 acquisition of Pixar in his new book, “The Ride of a Lifetime.” Drew then shares an interview that he did with Jill Culton, the co-director of the soon-to-be-released DreamWorks Animation / Pearl Studios co-production, “Abominable”


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

How Disney is promoting “Frozen II” just the same way as they did the original “Frozen” back in the late Summer / early Fall of 2013 (i.e., pretending that an animated musical doesn’t have any songs in it)

Why it’s kind of bizarre – given how poorly its films have been doing at the box office – that Paramount Animation has put so much time & effort into developing a logo for that division of this studio

How the 10 episodes of “Disenchantment” that Netflix just made available for downloading aren’t actually the second season of this adult comic fantasy animated series, but – rather – the second half of Season One

How Adult Swim fans need to be ready for how genuinely brutal Gennedy Tartakovsky’s new series, “Primal,” is going to be

How Jill Culton was the director of “Everest,” left the project, only to then return as the co-director of an animated feature that was now known as “Abominable”
