Ant-Man and the wasp debuted to more than $75 million this weekend, eclipsing the $57 million of its predecessor. This episode we dive into the ins and outs of the film, as well as how this will relate to Avengers: Infinity War. 

Also, I have to give a HUGE shout-out to Ed and Kristin for making this episode possible. I took an unexpected trip to Dallas and left all of my recording equipment at home. Ed came through in the clutch to record the episode and Kristin brought in a perfect slam dunk by editing it. I will be forever grateful for their work to make this entire podcast work!

This week we're on vacation, so we prerecorded an episode on what we think are the best uses of Disney movies in Disney parks. We probably made a few huge oversights, but one REALLY stands out!

Jun 25, 2018

This week was whirlwind news week, with major stories happening every single day. Consider that:

  • Fox accepted Disney’s $71 billion bid for the company
  • Disney named the new Heads for the Disney and Pixar Animation Studios
  • Lucasfilm appears to have canceled plans for future standalone Star Wars films
  • ABC ordered new episodes of Roseanne
  • And the Incredibles 2 destroyed animation records.

...all in the same week! We do our best to break it all down. For the week of June 25, this is Episode 189 of The Disney Movie Review.

Jun 25, 2018

Cameron took his family to Disneyland on vacation. He tells us what he liked and what he didn't. Plus, we get into a little bit of a "who did it better" between Disney World and Disneyland. Then he gives his final rating of the trip.

Jun 11, 2018

This week the Disney Company agreed to part ways with John Lasseter. It is the end of the rule of a man that spawned one of the most successful periods of Disney Animation in history. Some are hailing him as a saint, others, a monster. No one has the full picture.

But What really happened with Lasseter inside the halls of Pixar? And if it was enough for him to be fired, why is he coming back as a consultant through the end of the year? And What took so long for Disney to make this decision in the first place? We work to process all that and much, much more. For the week of June 11 this is episode 187 of the Disney Movie Review.

Jun 4, 2018

This week Disney canceled its highest rated show after the star posted some racist comments on Twitter. Meanwhile, Disney is not backing down after Comcast launched a bid to buy Fox in cash. Plus Solo was hit hard in its opening weekend, earning just $84 million from Friday to Sunday. Are Star Wars fans to blame or is Disney just putting out too much content? 

For the week of June 4, this is episode 186 of The Disney Movie Review.

May 21, 2018

I am now the dad of two beautiful girls. It is awesome and mom and baby are doing great! In the meantime, we previously recorded an episode where we interviewed Pete Tedone, creator of the LastGen Podcast Network and host of The Disney Magic Hour. It is pretty awesome and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did recording it.

May 7, 2018

This week, Avengers: Infinity War broke $1 Billion dollars at the box office and is continuing to smash records. However, with Deadpool and Solo looming, how long can it stay on top? Disney boosted Twitter’s stock price, but it is struggling to lift its own past $100/ share. And the rumor is that is Disney is spending $290 million on the live-action version of Mulan. That and much much more. For the week of May 7, this is episode 183 of The Disney Movie Review.

May 7, 2018

In this bonus episode, the writers of Avengers: Infinity War are weighing on some of the more controversial parts of the movie. It's not a spoiler to say that some of the Avengers die in Infinity War, since we all expected a few of them to pass on. However, the writers are pushing back against those who are petitioning for a comeback storyline.

Huge thanks to DeeDee for passing us this story.

Apr 30, 2018

Fan reaction to Avengers: Infinity War has been largely positive, especially compared to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Infinity War currently has a 93 percent from fans on Rotten Tomatoes while The Last Jedi has a 47 percent. But why?

In this episode we break down why the same fans that thought The Last Jedi was too complex are cheering for a film that had at least 32 "main" characters.

Apr 9, 2018

This week a pregnant woman is stopped from going on a Disney cruise because she is too pregnant. Black Panther solidifies its place as a cultural phenomenon. Han Solo also got his own menu at Denny’s, an American institution. And would you skip your high school prom to go see Avengers: Infinity War? It's a light news week, but we have fun anyway. For the week of April 9, this is Episode 180 of The Disney Movie Review

Apr 2, 2018

This week we dive into the infamous tweet that asked Disney to make a princess that’s had an abortion.

Apr 2, 2018

We got a cast list for Artemis Fowl, Ant-Man and the Wasp is getting reshoots, Pixar will have a short in front of Incredibles 2, and somehow Kristin still likes Szechuan sauce from McDonalds.

Mar 19, 2018

This week Avengers: Infinity War got an amazing final trailer and tickets are already hard to find. Then we talk about the weekend box office for Black Panther and A Wrinkle In Time, which made history last weekend. Also, analysts are thinking Disney could spend up to $30 billion annually on its streaming service. Finally, we dive into the new Parking Fees at Disney World and what they can tell us about Disney’s search for a new CEO.

Mar 19, 2018

It's easy to complain about price increases and parking fees. It's harder to put yourself in the boardroom when Bob Iger is looking for new revenue streams. In this bonus episode, we talk about the things we think Disney should actually be charging for to increase revenue. This conversation was taken directly from Episode 177. You can find more information on www.TheDisneyMovieReview.com.

Mar 12, 2018

This week it’s two for the price of one as we have too much news to just do one show. We talk about the new trailers for Mary Poppins Returns and Christopher Robin (which I mistakenly call "Winnie the Pooh"). Then we break down plagiarism allegations against Solo: A Star Wars Story. Finally, we have a discussion about why 52 percent of Disney shareholders think Bob Iger makes too much money.

Feb 12, 2018

This week we interview someone who went to the Black Panther premiere. She sat between Christopher Priest -- who helped create Black Panther -- and Ta-Nehisi Coastes -- who is writing the new Black Panther comics. What did she think? Take a listen and find out.

Feb 12, 2018

This week we recap Disney’s Super Bowl commercials and decide whether or not the company wasted its money. Plus we finally got new details on what fans can expect from Disney’s new streaming service, including how much the ESPN service will cost. And with ANOTHER new trilogy announced, we debated whether there is too much Star Wars. Finally, the first quarter results are in and the Disney parks are carrying the company for now. For the week of Feb. 12, this is episode 170 of The Disney Movie Review.

Feb 5, 2018

This week Ant-Man and the Wasp get a trailer and it looks anything but small. Black Panther is zooming towards a $150 million opening but some people on Facebook want to take it down. Plus, the Disney Studios will work to impress investors with first quarter numbers. For the week of February 5, this is episode 169 of The Disney Movie Review.

*Disclaimer: This was recorded prior to the super bowl. We will discuss those trailers next week.

Jan 29, 2018

The Oscar nominations came out this week and Cars 3 isn’t on the list. Black Panther is just three weeks away and we talk about what it could make and what it means for black women. In a quarterly earnings call, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings says they aren’t afraid of Disney’s new streaming service. For the week of January 29, this is Episode 168 of The Disney Movie Review.

Jan 15, 2018

It was quite the eventful week as Disney admitted to darkening the skin of extras in the live action version of Aladdin. In addition, Disney began charging wealthy guests for extra fast passes, a sharp change in direction from the current free system.

For the week of January 8, 2018 this is episode 165 of The Disney Movie Review.

Jan 1, 2018

I'm like Bob Iger. I keep saying there won't be an episode and then, Poof! Here it is! But when Ed, Kim, Cameron, Chiwahn, and I all get together at a diner in Texas, you have to break out the recorder. Sorry for the sound quality, but we hope you enjoy this one!

Dec 11, 2017

This week we are inches away from a final deal for Disney to buy 21st Century Fox. So we take an in-depth look at the winners, the losers, and the things that are just too soon to tell. Plus, Kristin provides an exclusive look at how this deal could forever change the theme parks. And Olaf's Frozen Adventure is leaving theaters, which has made some fans more upset than they were in the first place. That and much more this week on Episode 161 of The Disney Movie Review.

Dec 4, 2017
