Dan Zehr & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how the Imagineers have handed the Anaheim version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” off to Disneyland Ops teams. They then talk about how the negative reaction that “Temple of Doom” received back in 1984 led to “Indy III” deliberately revisiting the style & tone of “Raiders”


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

How some WDW Cast Members who appear onstage in “The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” has also done on-camera stunt work for “Avengers: Endgame”

What special “Star Wars” -related touches Disneyland Park incorporated into its “May the Fourth Be With You” celebration for 2019

How “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” led to the Motion Picture Association of America’s decision to create the PG-13 rating

That scene from “Indiana Jones and the Saucer Men” which was supposed to have featured Indy commiserating over drinks with Marion Ravenwood & Willie Scott

How long a hiatus does Walt Disney Studios plan on giving the “Star Wars” film franchise between the December 2019 release of “The Rise of Skywalker” and the launch of the next franchise
