This week we take a bit of a detour from our usual show to go into the Disney Parks. We recently got the chance to speak with Kim Hanley (@_kimhanley), a Senior Systems Engineer for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Design and Engineering Department. She takes us back stage to reveal the stuff we don't even think about as Disney guests. To put it mildly, every Disney Parks fan needs to listen to this episode.

In this episode we find out:

  • The difference between a Disney Parks and Resorts Engineer and a Disney Imagineer
  • Kim's thoughts on Disney getting rid of classic rides to make way for new attractions.
  • What is taking so long for the Yeti to get fixed?
  • How she became one of the rare outside hires in Disney's engineering department.
  • What makes Disney engineering so unique.
  • Why Disney will never build a robot.

That and much, much more. For the week of August 27, this is episode 198 of The Disney Movie Review.

This week Disney dug its heels in and said it will not rehire James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3. It ruins the MCU in more ways than one. Some Wreck-it Ralph 2 Fans are getting a little too into new images that feature the princesses. And we talk about why Consumer Products has passed ESPN to claim the title of Disney’s weakest business unit. Plus, we give Disney a grade on the movies that have been released so far this year and we can finally spoil things in Avengers: Infinity War! That and much much more.

This week, Disney asked the Oscars to make the awards show more relevant, and the academy ended up creating an award for the "Most Popular" movie...the same year the most popular film was Black Panther. Dave Bautista says he will ask Disney to cut him out of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 if they do not use James Gunn’s script. And The former head of Dreamworks -- Jeffrey Katzenberg -- is starting a streaming service and Disney is investing in it. For the week of Aug 13, this is episode 196.

The Guardians of the Galaxy responded to the firing of Director James Gunn. It's a new twist in a saga that is far from being over. And Ed has a really good theory on how Disney might be able to fix this whole mess.

Plus, Disney's live-action take on The Jungle Cruise put out a teaser like we've never seen before. We try to figure out what is going on.
