Disney Magic Hour Episode #179 - Something Wicked This Way Comes

DMHEp179CoverArt.jpg

By the pricking of my thumb, Jonathan Pryce this way comes. I will be very upfront in saying a wacky mood was in me during this recording. Very hyper and rather silly but that is because the crazy 80’s continues as Ray Bradbury brings a tale of temptation in the form of a sinister carnival led by Mr. Dark. It seems Disney is trying to find a new identity here with varying success but they get in their own way with an abundance of revisions to what Bradbury and director Jack Clayton aimed for. The result is still a great experience but you can see interference at the films conclusion. Did that sink our experience? Does the film find a way to hold up? In a film that has quite a number of attractive camera work, what is the iconic shot? This week we are joined by Theme Park Stop’s Ian Kauffman to break it all down! Lots to do! Lets go!

PLEASE NOTE : There was an audio snafu on this episode that you will hear in the background. I apologize but it was impossible to remove so other than snuff the entire episode we decided to release what we have and I think it’s a great discussion so it would have killed me to not release it. ENJOY!!

Disney Magic Hour Episode #177 - TRON LEGACY Review

DMHEp177CoverArt.jpg

GREETINGS…again…PROGRAMS!! You can take a kid out of The Grid but you can’t take The Grid out of the kid. Or in this case you can just stay in The Grid for an undetermined amount of time, find zen and become a Christ character. Or Moses. There is a lot going on here. 28 years after first meeting Kevin Flynn and crew, we are back in the digital landscape of TRON with the long awaited sequel, TRON LEGACY. After so many years how do you bring an audience back in? Do you stick with the religious allegory of the previous entries? Spoilers : They do. A lot. Does it work though? That is a whole conversation and lucky for you we are here to do just that. Lots to do! Let’s go! END OF LINE.

GALAXY’S EDGE is now upon us and we were lucky enough to visit the new Hollywood Studios land twice as part of a cast member preview and an annual passholder preview. For the West Coast side of the equation we are joined by Ryan Wilson who was visiting Batuu for three whole days recently out in Disneyland! Yes, RYAN IS BACK! There is a TON to discuss this week and we talk food, merch, mood, experiences and boarding the Millennium Falcon. That plus an update on availability of Disney+ and a special offer to D23 members and those attending the D23 Expo.
