This week Disney and AMC have partnered to give free tickets to Black Panther's re-release on the big screen. This got us into a discussion on the most useless film in the MCU and how Avengers: Endgame might change that. Before we get there, we dive into Bob Iger's claim that 40 percent of Disney's upcoming slate will be led by female directors. Plus Ed reviews the After Hours Event at Magic Kingdom.
We missed you last week and are happy to be back! A Disney film has (finally) been nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, but all signs point to a loss. Plus Lee Unkrich is leaving Pixar after 25 years of making magic. And Kevin Feige uncharacteristically revealed a "spoiler" for Avengers: End Game.
Captain Marvel tickets are now on sale and they are going really, really fast. Unfortunately, Marvel's success is being overshadowed by John Lasseter, who recently got a new job as the head of Skydance Animation. We talk about what that means for Skydance and Disney.
Meanwhile, Bob Iger didn't do himself any favors with the fans by criticizing "nondescript coasters" in India. That and much, much more. For the week of Jan 14, this is episode 216 of The Disney Movie Review.
Disney closed out the year in style, posting a domestic record at the box office.
