A little over one week ago, Disney debuted the genie that will take center stage in the live-action version of Aladdin. The blue version of Will Smith definitely broke the internet, but probably not in the way Disney was hoping for. 

Before we get there, we talk a bit about Ron Miller, the former Disney CEO who recently passed away. Then we jump into Frozen 2 and talk about why the teaser was so epic. That and much, much more!

Dec 3, 2018

With any luck, we'll have a trailer for Avengers by the time you read this. But as of 1:46pm ET on Sunday afternoon, said trailer has not arrived. So this week we dive into the Artemis Fowl teaser and ask whether Disney can make a successful young adult movie. Then we examine Fox's attempt to make Deadpool PG-13 in Once Upon a Deadpool and why the debate over the the "live-action" version of "The Lion King" is far from silly. Plus, will you still subscribe to Disney Plus if it has ads? Cause it will probably have ads.

That and much, much more. For the week of December 3, this is episode 210 of The Disney Movie Review

Mar 26, 2018

News was light this week, so we cover a few topics then dive into whether Walt Disney's vision for the Disney company is alive or dead.

Then we take a look at the clues that let us know what Disney's new service might look like.

  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?

  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?

This week on episode 29 of The Disney Movie Review, Pixar releases its first full-length trailer for The Good Dinosaur, but the trailer has no dialogue. That’s not an accident and we’ll tell you why. Ant-Man opened with more than $58 Million last weekend beating Universal Pictures’ Minions. We look into the formula Marvel used to beat Minions. GQ magazine pranks Lucasfilm and there is nothing they can do about it. ESPN is in a lot of financial trouble and I am one big reason why. That and much, much more.
