This week we talk about the fate of the Spiderman franchise, a refreshing of the Carousel of Progress, and remembering a forgotten “nearly-was” Haunted Mansion changing portrait. Then we look at rebooting the Matrix franchise, updates on the new James Bond movie and Kevin Smith being tapped to recycle a beloved Mattel television hero from our childhood. All this and a couple of great Insightful Picks of the Week with a promise of a bonus episode this week covering the D23 Expo in California.
This week’s Disney Detective segment dives into news about Disney’s Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary at Disneyland. We’ll take a look at how Toy Story 4 is doing at the box office then take a brief look at some casting news regarding the forthcoming live action version of The Little Mermaid.
It’s Avengers Endgame Weekend and we’ve got some news on that, a discussion on some harsh criticism towards Disney by a member of the family and disappointing restrictions for Galaxy’s edge. Our Entertainment news takes a look at details released on the next James Bond film as well as some albums from artists we haven’t heard from for a while. We finish up with a twist to our Insightful Picks of the week to wrap another great podcast.
