Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this episode by talking about the “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” sequel that Walt Disney Animation Studios had in development. They look back at when 100,000 people crowded onto the Great Lawn of NYC’s Central Park to catch the world premiere of Disney’s 33rd full-length animated feature


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

What was the difference between the two “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” -themed attractions that WDI was prepping for Disney’s stateside theme parks

Why The Walt Disney Company wants to find what it’s going to take to make audiences feel confident/comfortable about returning to movie theaters

How the characters from that “Team: Atlantis” series that Walt Disney Television Animation was prepping for the Disney Afternoon programming block were to have shared a universe with Disney’s “Gargoyles”

Why the execs in charge of Disney Parks, Experiences & Products are big fans of Princess Tiana but not necessarily fans of the film that first introduced Disney’s first African-American princess to the world

What sort of physical challenges would Walt Disney Imagineering face if they decided to retheme “Splash Mountain”
