This week we took the #BettyWhiteChallenge, a viral Spider-Man animatronic video that confuses a bunch of people, Spider-Man: No Way Home continues breaking records, Disney repurposes the gingerbread houses from the parks after the holiday season, a theory floating around says that Disney Animation is trying to make Bruno from Encanto disappear, D23 Expo tickets are now on sale, a Figment popcorn bucket at Epcot causes a bit of a line and who the heck is Robert Fettucine?
In this episode we recap the finale of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we prepare for the end of March Mayhem (in April), we talk about new concept art for changes coming to the Jungle Cruise later this year, exciting new animatronic technology is upon us, and we talk about a special ceremony held at Disneyland this week as the park prepares to welcome back guests after a historic 400+ day closure.
This week we’re joined by Matthew Serrano the director of the documentary Live From The Space Stage: A Halyx Story and Remain Seated Please – A Hoot and Chief Story. Aside from his films, we also discuss how contrast in your experiences can mold the type of storyteller or even the type of person you become, Matthew shares tidbits not included in the film and more!
This week we’re excited to welcome Josh Shipley to the show! Josh worked at Walt Disney Imagineering for 21 years before taking on the challenge of helping develop and run Evermore Park for a couple of years as their Chief Creative Officer. Josh shares stories about his path to becoming an Imagineer and why everyone’s path is different. We also discuss his personal thoughts about attraction design and where attractions might be headed in the future. It was a super fun talk that we hope you enjoy!
This week we confirm the rumor that Carl Fredricksen’s house floating over Sleeping Beauty Castle during Pixar Fest and the new foods being offered during the summer event.
