This week is a jam-packed show as we try to catch up on two weeks of news! Does a gay LeFou really make sense for Beauty and the Beast? Disney marketing kicked into overdrive this week by releasing new trailers and footage for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Cars 3. Plus we found out that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is plural and a new article details how Disney is making fans of the Expanded Universe (a.k.a. Legends) happy. That and much much more. For the week of March 6, 2017, this is episode 121 of The Disney Movie Review.

This week Lucasfilm released the final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We break it down and ask whether those reshoots still matter. The internet went crazy over rumors of a white guy stealing the show in the new Mulan movie. But there is more to this story.

For the week of October 17, this is episode 103 of The Disney Movie Review.

We debate it. That and much, much more. For the week of Oct 10, this is episode 102 of The Disney Movie Review.

This week, Moana gets an official trailer and we are definitely smelling what Maui is cooking. Disney makes a deal with Turner for the TV Rights of Star Wars, but did they get enough money? The Dr. Strange "whitewashing" controversy enters a new chapter and did Disney just make a hire that could lead to the next CEO? I think so. Plus, what the heck happened to the show last week? That and much, much more. For the week of September 19, 2016, this is Episode 99 of The Disney Movie Review.
