This week Disney names a female director for the live-action version of Mulan and I could not be happier. Daisy Ridley sports a new hairstyle that brings out more theories on who Rey’s parents could be. Plus, Disney raised and lowered ticket prices at their theme parks but that was overshadowed by protests over Bob Iger and Donald Trump. That and much, much more. For the week of Feb 20, 2017 this is Episode 120 of the Disney Movie Review.

This week Guardians of the Galaxy and Pirates of the Caribbean both got new trailers and some surprising results, Bob Iger says he would be open to staying as CEO even though Disney’s stock is falling, and we are pretty positive that theme park ticket prices will be going up soon so we get a jump on the conversation. That and much, much more. For the week of February 13, 2017, this is Episode 119 of The Disney Movie Review.
