Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by offering updates on “Cruella 2” & “Hotel Transylvania: Transformania.” They then talk about why Robin Williams got so mad at the Mouse back in late 1992 / early 1993 over the way “Aladdin” was being promoted


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

Where the sequel to “Good Morning Vietnam” that Disney Studios was prepping in the late 1980s would have been set

What’s kind of unusual about the animated films & characters that will be featured in “Disney Enchantment” (i.e., the new nighttime fireworks show that will be premiering at WDW’s Magic Kingdom as part of that Resort’s 50th-anniversary celebration)

Why are Disney Television Animation vets somewhat miffed about those “Monsters at Work” toy sets which recently hit store shelves

Who were Disney’s possible fallbacks if Robin Williams had said “No” to voicing the Genie in “Aladdin”?

How are TMS Entertainment & Pluto TV teaming up to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the launch of “Lupin the 3rd”
