I'll listen to the podcast soon, but first, there's a question I've been meaning to ask someone who might know. Does Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm also mean that Disney now owns the non-Star Wars, non-Indiana Jones films that Lucasfilm made ("Radioland Murders", "Labyrinth", "American Graffiti", etc.), or is just "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones"? I know they primarily bought it for "Star Wars", but I'm just curious.ReplyDelete
Hi! Sorry I was away so just getting to these now.Delete
Adam: I'd say it's all fair game - they bought the whole kit-and-caboodle. Remember Indiana Jones takes up as much space in DHS as Star Wars does. Consider this also: since Disney now also has distribution rights to Dreamworks, how long until they snatch that up and also pull in Spielberg as well.
Okay, just listened to the podcast. Fun to listen to as always! I'm afraid I can't comment on the film itself since I haven't seen. Have to disagree about the Mickey, Donald, and Goofy one, though. I remember thinking the dialogue in that one was kind of lame. You mentioned "Muppet Treasure Island" (which I'd love to hear you guys do a show on, by the way) but did you know Tim Curry was also Dr. Sevarious on "Gargoyles"?ReplyDelete
Also... (sticking with the above theme), I also said that about all Disney has left to buy to own my childhood is the complete collection of Tim Curry works :)
I always thought Mickey's version was one of the better video movies and I wish they did more of types of projects rather than movie continuations videos.ReplyDelete
Those sort of films are very popular yes. Goes all the way back to Lonesome Ghosts for me (which is really a short, but is partly why stuff like the animated Three Musketeers exists).Delete
