Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this podcast by talking about how Paramount’s decision to push the release date of “Sonic the Hedgehog” back to February 2020 may have actually made it harder for this live-action / CG film to succeed at the box office. Drew then shares an interview he recently did with Alan Menken, where that Academy Award-winner talks about the development of the original animated “Aladdin” back in the late 1980s / early 1990s.


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

How Howard Ashman & Alan Menken almost did a musical for Broadway based on the life of baseball great Babe Ruth

How – thanks to “Monster Trucks” -- Paramount Animation has had plenty of experience with having to change the look of a lead character in mid-production

Which is the most difficult Pixar-themed hole at that pop-up miniature golf course which is now touring Australia

Why stop motion animators are upset with Taika Waititi for walking away from “Bubbles”

What’s the current production status of that live-action “Little Mermaid” that Walt Disney Pictures is developing
