Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how “Angry Birds 2” garnered better reviews & sold more tickets over its opening weekend than the original “Angry Birds” movie did back in 2016. Drew & Jim then go on to discuss how both Disney & Comcast are struggling to carve out distinctive identities for all of the animation studios these two media giants currently control.


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

What Kristen Andersen-Lopez Tweeted about “Frozen 2” just 100 days prior to the theatrical release of this highly anticipated Walt Disney Animation Studios sequel

Why the folks at Walt Disney Pictures would prefer that you think of Jon Favreau’s photo-realistic “Lion King” as a live-action film

How Disney’s $19-billion-dollar acquisition of ABC / Cap Cities suggests that it could be years yet before The Walt Disney Company finally manages to successfully integrate all of those film & television elements which it acquired from 21st Century Fox into the Mouse House

How – over the next two years – Pixar Animation Studios & DreamWorks Animation are headed in opposite directions. At least as far as sequels to their earlier hit films are concerned

Why recent personnel changes at Disney Studios suggests that the Mouse is in it for the long haul, at least as far as Blue Sky Studios is concerned
