Drew Taylor & Jim Hill first talk about the “Song of the South” news that just came out Disney’s annual shareholders' meeting. Then Drew & Jim discuss some of the characters & storylines that Dan Scanlon & his team at Pixar Animation Studios explored for “Onward” but ultimately abandoned.


On this show, listeners will learn:

Which major metropolitan area in the United States inspired “Onward” ‘s fantasy / familiar settings

Why -- given the number of theaters that are already closed in Europe & Asia -- Columbia Pictures felt compelled to push back the release date for “Peter Rabbit 2” from April 3rd until August 7th

The look of which character in “Onward” was inspired by Carol, Dan Scanlon’s bug-eyed dog

How -- what with hour-long animated dramas and half-hour-long animated musical comedies -- television is really bumping out the borders when it comes to audience expectations

Why was the working title for Pixar Animation Studios’ latest theatrical release “Trio”
