This week I interview Disney Biographer Dr. Steven Watts - one of the historians featured in the recent PBS Documentary Walt Disney: American Experience. I ask him what the documentary got right and wrong, whether he was racist against different groups of people, One thing Walt Disney did that made him so successful.

Visit www.TheDisneyMovieReview.com/45 for the show notes this week.

In this episode, we ask Dr. Watts:

  1. What did he think of the documentary?
  2. What was it like to do research in the Disney archives? 
  3. How did Walt see what others could not see?
  4. What are the human parts of Walt Disney that we often do not see?
  5. Was Disney racist between certain groups? 
  6. In the documentary Dr. Watts said Disney didn’t think through the problems of the Depression. What did he mean by that?
  7. Would Walt Disney have been able to be Walt Disney without Roy as his brother?
  8. What about Elias? How do we wrap around such a controversial figure? 
  9. Walt was very intent on the studio being named after him. Did that cause conflict?
  10. Do you you believe in the idea of a Disney Renaissance?
  11. what does it take to make history?

This week a new study says audiences are more excited for the Hunger Games than Star Wars. There are probably two reasons why. Disney invests in a virtual reality company to help them sell jeans to miners. It's explained in the podcast. Netflix says they want to be the next Disney and they are going after China to prove it.

This week Disney released a new trailer for The Jungle Book, but don’t worry. Disney won’t screw up the canon this time. PBS puts out a 2-night documentary on Walt Disney to mixed reviews. Why no one really knows whether it’s good or bad. Disney announced some Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious news and it's probably too late to stop it.

This week, Cameron joins us again to break down the news of the week. Disney and Dreamworks have agreed to sever their distribution agreement, but what does that really mean? And who gets the better side of that deal? Captain America gets into a fight with Steven Spielberg and DC Comics gets in on the fun, potentially starting a war of the words. And even though it has nothing to do with Disney movies we talk about the new Jungle Cruise breakfast at Disneyland. That and much, much more. For the week of September 14, this is episode 41 of The Disney Movie Review.
