Michelle Valladolid & Jim Hill talk about how Disney has made Jasmine the main focus of its merchandise push for the Studio’s new live-action version of “Aladdin.” Jim then shares the history of “Tin Toy” and how this Academy Award-winning short led to the creation of Pixar’s “Toy Story.”


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

How – on the heels of Tim Burton’s “Dumbo” under-performing at the box office earlier this year – Disney Studios is now suggesting that its new live-action version of “Aladdin” will do less than half the business that Disney’s live-action “Beauty & the Beast” did over its opening weekend back in 2017

How Disney World & Disneyland Park’s next pin trading event will key off of the 10th anniversary of the release of Pixar’s “Up.”

What Woody’s last name is

How – if John Lasseter had had his way – Paul Newman would have voiced the character of Woody in “Toy Story” rather than Tom Hanks

How Feature Animation - Florida at Disney-MGM Studios theme park was originally supposed to produce a featurette starring Mickey Mouse that was to have told the story of Columbus’ discovery of America (which was then supposed to have been released to theaters in 1992, just in time for the 400th anniversary of this historic event)
