Special guest, John BIG FAT PANDA Saccheri joins us this week as Pete and Melyssa review Disney's latest animated release, RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET which is the sequel to 2012's WRECK IT RALPH.  With the first film being such a pleasant surprise filled with off the wall humor and emotional weight, can the sequel raise the stakes even more while keeping the heart at the center of the film?  We will discuss that and the new THE LION KING "live action" teaser trailer!! 

Disney Magic Hour Episode #152 - MIDNIGHT MADNESS Review, Stan Lee Passes, Toy Story 4 Trailer

This week the gang reviews the 1980 cult film MIDNIGHT MADNESS and say goodbye to Stan Lee, hello to TOY STORY 4 and welcome Pedro Pascal to THE MANDALORIAN.  The main event is MIDNIGHT MADNESS though as the journey through the Disney library continues and we hit the 80's like a freight train.  Does this cult flick hold up though?  Is it just the nostalgia of youth viewings?  The team breaks it down and question the limits one can take of the sophomoric humor of the time.

DMHEp151CoverArt.jpg

The Disney Magic Hour is traveling through time and space to review the utterly bonkers 1979 THE BLACK HOLE.  Take a trip with us and #NotNemo to beyond the realm of our reality into (checks notes) ...Hell?  We will discuss the production of the film, the actors involved, where the story came from and how it all comes together as we ask the three questions we put to any film... 1) Does it hold up?  2) Does it achieve its moral message/what is the moral message? 3) What is the iconic shot? Why is Ernest Borgnine dressed as a lion?

This film is three sheets to the wind weird so lets all jump in together and get nuts!

Winnie the Pooh is one of the most beloved characters ever featured in a Disney film.  With the release of CHRISTOPHER ROBIN we find the silly old bear back on the big screen but the title says it all.  This is a film about his friend Christopher Robin, played here by Ewan McGregor, as he struggles to find himself amidst the stress of life and work.  Does the film work?  How does the new animation for Pooh and crew look in action?  Is the film as endearing as the trailers were?  That is what we discuss on this week's show and we find ourselves joined by Nick Groome of the Disney Duet!!
