LAMBCAST #165: FRANCHISE LOOK-BACK: THE DISNEY RENAISSANCE

disney_logo_20091101As I mention during the show (and for anyone that was paying attention over at the Forums), this episode was initially intended to be split in two.  After all, we cover an insane nine (!) films in it.  However, life found a way to get in the way and we were forced to do it all in one monstrous ep.  So you ought to know that you’re in for a long ride, though considering the number of films discussed, I think we were pretty brisk. 

The films covered are: The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan, and Tarzan.   Taking part in the discussion was Kristen, Jay, Nick, Dylan, and, in a LAMBcast first, Pat, who joined us remotely.

Also on tap:

* Rants and Raves of the Week
* Name That Film Times Five (tentatively titled)

    Aside from the politically correct balderdash, I enjoyed hearing a look back on this time period. The period is also defined by the business structure of Disney at the time. A new regime and a new emphasis on the movie stream. The death of Jeffery Wells and the departure of Katzenberg were the spots that signaled the end of this second golden age. The rise of Pixar as a film supplier changed the thinking to a large degree as well. I wonder if the recent down tick in Pixar quality and originality can be traced to the point where they took over at Disney.
