Greg wished for a two-hour geek-out session with a Disney insider about the magic behind the commercialism.
What makes a great piece of storytelling in animation?
What was Walt thinking when he came up with Main Street USA?
Why did they get rid of the Back to the Future ride at Universal?
They even talk about the “controversial” things animators hid in your favorite childhood classics, as well as what it really takes to live a sustainably AWESOME life.
Saul lives one. Dreams do come true. ‘Cause after this guest, you’ll know how to live an awesome life, too.
