●     “Feature Film” – The Shaggy Dog (1959 - not the 2006 Tim Allen version)

○     LOOSELY based on The Hound of Florence by Felix Salten (author of Bambi), a German novel, which is, frankly, just very upsetting

○      The Shaggy Dog is the story of dog-hating mailman Wilson Daniels, and his two sons - apparently the only 2 child actors Disney had access to prior to 1965. Kevin Corcoran as younger son “Moochie”, and Tommy Kirk as the lead, “Wilby”. Wilby Daniels is an awkward teenage inventor that seems to be capable of financing his best friend “Buzz”’s romantic life, but has not been able to date himself. He wants to change this when he and Buzz both catch sight of their new French neighbor Francesca,  - Francesca needs to go to  the local museum, so Buzz and Wilby trip over themselves to take her. While at the museum, they split up, and Wilby runs into Dr. Plumcutt, a former customer on his paper route. Dr. Plumcutt tells Wilby all about the Borgia family, their sinister reputation, and their secret dog magic. Afterward, Wilby knocks over a display of antique jewelry, only to realize that he has stolen, ahem, “acquired” a Borgia ring and smuggled it out of the museum in the cuff of his pants. Wilby reads the inscription on the ring aloud and inadvertently turns himself into a dog - which happens to be identical to Francesca’s “Bratislavan sheepdog”, Chiffon. Wilby returns to Dr. Plumcutt at the museum, who takes talking to a dog in impressive stride, and basically is told there isn’t anything he can do except perhaps an act of bravery to break the curse. Wilby switches uncontrollably back and forth between dog and boy, and manages to cause mayhem at a dance and discover a spy ring trying to steal government secrets led by none other than Francesca’s adoptive father. Through another long series of events, and the police refusing to listen to the Daniels family about the spies, and Wilby, in dog form, steals Buzz’s car and leads the police to the harbor, where the spies are escaping with Francesca in tow. Wilby tries to board the boat himself to stop them, but Francesca is knocked into the water and dog-Wilby leaps into the water and drags her to safety, breaking the curse (although no one actually realizes it, and all credit is given to Chiffon). Wilby’s dog-hating father is also commended for his role in the discovery of the spy ring, and is photographed with Chiffon for the paper - for an article about Chiffon being given a medal for bravery.

●     Trivia

○      The initial release of The Shaggy Dog grossed more than $9 million on a budget of less than $1 million – an almost unprecedented return on a film investment, making it more profitable than Ben-Hur, released the same year.

○     This movie has been remade a few times - a 1994 TV version featuring Scott Weinger and Ed Begley Jr, which kept the same general story intact, and the aforementioned 2006 horror movie version featuring Tim Allen

○     “Shaggy” was actually an Old English Sheepdog named Sam - he was a pet, and was recommended for the role by his obedience trainer, William Koehler, who trained many animals for Disney movies, including The Incredible Journey, That Darn Cat, and The Ugly Dachshund.

○     Sam was prepared for the car chase scene by using rubber bands to keep his hair out of his eyes and running him around in a wheel barrow, gradually increasing the intensity and speed as he got comfortable with the situation. A custom seat was made for Sam, with fur-covered “mittens” attached to the steering wheel, and a matching fur-covered seatbelt that blended in with his body.

○     Some of the stunts, such as jumping off of the boat were done by a child or a little person in a sheepdog suit. (The child was Johnny Kirk, Tommy Kirk’s little brother)

○     Sam accidentally stepped onto Tim Considine’s eye during filming, and scratched it.

●     “Feature Film” – Enchanted (2007)

○     This movie is an insane amount of nods to other movies to there is a ton of trivia I will need to limit myself.

○     According to director Kevin Lima, "thousands" of references are made to past and future works of Disney in Enchanted (2007), which serve as both a parody of and a "giant love letter to Disney classics". As Lima worked with Bill Kelly, the writer, to inject Disney references to the plot, it became "an obsession"; he derived the name of every character as well as anything that needed a name from past Disney films to bring in more Disney references.

○     The animated scenes were not actually done by the Disney Animation wing. It was done by James Baxter Animation, the studio responsible for Curious George

○     The first feature-length Disney live-action/traditional animation hybrid since Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988).

○     One of the elderly male dancers appeared in Mary Poppins (1964) as a chimney sweep.

○     When Prince Edward is knocking on apartment doors in search of Giselle, the very first door is opened by Judy Kuhn, the singing voice of the title character of Pocahontas (1995).

○     While Giselle is looking in the fish tank "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid (1989) is playing as background music. In the same scene, Jodi Benson plays the secretary - she also played the lead as Ariel in The Little Mermaid (1989).

○     When Prince Edward is flipping through TV channels in the hotel room, the soap opera he watches features Paige O'Hara, the voice of Belle in Beauty and the Beast (1991)

○     At the beginning, Giselle is creating a mannequin of her 'true love'. The outfit it is wearing is never worn by the prince - but it is worn by Robert at the ball, near the end of the film.

○     As we see Giselle progress into a modern woman, so does her wardrobe. She begins in the over-the-top wedding gown, then to the very princessy long gown, then to a very girly but short dress, and finally, into a modern evening gown. In the same way, Robert's wardrobe regresses from suit and tie to more casual clothing, and ending in a very prince-like outfit at the ball.

○     At the end of Robert and Giselle's dance, when Nancy cuts in, the camera angle makes it look as though she is wearing a crown. This foreshadows that she will become the future ruler of Andalasia when she returns there and marries Edward.

○     Thoughts on the film?

●     “Feature Film” – Tron (1982)

○     Trivia from IMDB

○     When talented computer engineer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) finds out that Ed Dillinger (David Warner), an executive at his company, has been stealing his work, he tries to hack into the system. However, Flynn is transported into the digital world, where he has to face off against Dillinger's computerized likeness, Sark, and the imposing Master Control Program. Aided by Tron (Bruce Boxleitner) and Yori (Cindy Morgan), Flynn becomes a freedom fighter for the oppressed programs of the grid.

○     The film was disqualified from receiving an Academy Award nomination for special effects, because the Academy felt at the time that using computers was "cheating".

○     To inspire the actors, arcade games were placed on the production sets and could be played during downtime. Jeff Bridges apparently was the most adept at the games and found it hard to tear himself away from a game to shoot a scene.

○     Although the film was an initial failure, the arcade video games based on it proved to be a tremendous hit and actually out-grossed the film.

○     Many Disney animators refused to work on this movie because they feared that computers would put them out of business. In fact, 22 years later Disney closed its hand-drawn animation studio in favor of CGI animation. Hand-drawn animation was ultimately resumed at Disney at the behest of new creative director John Lasseter, also head of Pixar- ironically a computer animation company.

○     In the initial scenes with Flynn at the arcade, he is playing a game he invented called Space Paranoids. The game he is playing bears remarkable resemblance to 3-D graphics game engines, which would not be invented for ten more years.

○     The state-of-the-art computer used for the film's key special effects had only 2MB of memory and 330MB of storage

○     The programmers' cubicles at Encom were shot using the actual programmers' cubicles at The Walt Disney Company's Information Technology group. A matte painting was used to expand the area to a size more appropriate to a software company.

○     The ENCOM laser bay was real. It was actually the target bay for the twenty-beam SHIVA solid-state laser facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. It was used for nuclear fusion research in the late seventies and early eighties, and was capable of delivering up to 28 trillion watts of power on target.

○     All the live action that occurred inside the computer was filmed in black and white, and colorized later with photographic and rotoscopic techniques.

○     HIDDEN MICKEY: At 1:12:26 in the "solar sailer" sequence, you'll see, for a brief moment, the silhouette of Mickey Mouse on the ground made to look like part of the terrain.

●     “Feature Film” – Bolt  (2008)
This film is about a German Shepherd puppy adopted by a little girl named Penny. Penny is also a child actress, and when we fast forward 5 years, Bolt actually believes he is actually a lab-enhanced superdog in the spy movie like setting of the TV show he and Penny star in. He spends every filming believing that he is actually saving Penny from the evil green-eyed man.

One day when filming ends at a cliffhanger, Bolt freaks out, thinking Penny is actually still in danger and needing to be rescued. He manages to find his way into a shipping crate and ends up in New York, where he begins his mission to find the green-eyed man and save Penny. In New York, he meets a streetwise alley cat named Mr. Mittens, that is coerced into helping him find his way back home to Hollywood. Along the way, the two bond and find a new friend - Rhino, a hamster and a huge fan of Bolt. Along the way, Bolt has to come to grips with the fact that he is not really a superdog, and that maybe it’s okay just being a dog. And eventually, just being a loyal “regular dog” helps him find penny and save her from a studio fire before they retire together to just be friends instead of co-stars.

○     Trivia

○     First Disney animated feature conceived and produced in 3-D. (Chicken Little and Meet the Robinsons were converted to 3D after the fact)

○     Chloe Moretz voiced THE ENTIRE FILM before they got Miley Cyrus on board

○     Developed by Chris Sanders, the creator of Lilo & Stitch - Bolt was originally a VERY different film

○     In order to properly animate Rhino, the crew adopted a real hamster which they called Doink and filmed it from beneath while it was walking on a sheet of Plexiglas. Thus they were able to see how Rhino would walk in his plastic ball.

○     Ironically, Mittens’ family left her when they moved to California

○     Bolt - A Reference to Thunderbolt from 101 Dalmations?

●     “Feature Film” – The Princess and the Frog  (2009)
Hardworking and ambitious, Tiana dreams of one day opening the finest restaurant in New Orleans. Her dream takes a slight detour when she meets Prince Naveen, who has been turned into an amphibian by evil Dr. Facilier. Mistaking her for a princess and hoping to break the spell, Naveen plants a kiss on poor Tiana -- thereby turning her into a frog as well. The pair hop along on an adventure through the bayous to seek the help of a powerful voodoo priestess.

○     Trivia

○     The first Disney movie to feature an African-American princess.

○     This is Disney's first 2-D film in which all of the voice actors do both the speaking and singing parts since, Beauty and the Beast (1991).

○     The animation style was influenced primarily by Lady and the Tramp (1955), for the city scenes, and Bambi (1942), for the bayou scenes. Those films were, in the directors' opinion, "the peak of animation in the classic Disney animation style."

○     This was supposed to spearhead a return to hand-drawn animation but subsequent research after the film's disappointing box office run indicated that audiences thought it was old-fashioned.

○     First Disney film since The Lion King (1994) to have more than one song be nominated for Best Original song at the Academy Awards. ( It Lost Best Animated Picture to UP)

○     For much of the film, Naveen calls Tiana "Princess" and later "Waitress", symbolizing his objectification of women as a whole. He doesn't call her by her real name until after the song 'Ma Belle Evangeline', when he starts to fall in love with her.

○     The last line of Dr. Facilier's Friends On the Other Side song is "You got what you wanted but you lost what you had", which is in direct contrast to Mama Odie's song about finding who you are and learning what you need; accentuating the evil side vs good side of voodoo. It means you may have gotten what you wanted but you lost what you already had that you needed.

●     Segment: News/Announcements  “The Newsies Banner”

○     There will be a new party, Oogie Boogie Bash, debuting in Disney California Adventure Park come September. It’s like Micky’s Halloween Party but with some major upgrades, especially in the villain department.

○     The Little Mermaid Live Musical will air on ABC on November 5. The production will star "Moana's" Auli'i Cravalho as Ariel and Queen Latifah as the evil sea witch Ursula.

  • “Feature Film” – The Lion King (2019)

    • Trivia

    • Jeremy Irons expressed interest in reprising his role as Scar.

    • Benedict Cumberbatch turned down the role of the voice of Scar.

    • James Earl Jones, Hans Zimmer, Elton John, and Tim Rice are the only people who worked on the original animated film that reprise their respective roles, as the voice of Mufasa, the composer of the film, and songwriters.

    • Donald Glover grew up watching the original film and mentioned that while recording the music for the remake, he didn't need anybody to teach him how to sing the songs, he had been singing since he was a child.

    • Billy Eichner did not have to audition for the voice of Timon. Jon Favreau happened to be a fan of his and suggested the thought to Eichner's agent, who told him about it; he accepted it in a heartbeat.

    • Jon Faverau revealed in an interview that he brought James Earl Jones back as the voice of Mufasa because: "I see it as carrying the legacy across. Just hearing him say the lines is really moving and surreal, the timbre of his voice has changed. That served the role well because he sounds like a king who's ruled for a long time."

    • Scar's villainous song "Be Prepared" was originally to be left out of the film due to its Nazi themes which Disney executives were afraid to tackle and also because Chiwetel Ejiofor's voice was not fit for the singing. This drew a lot of ire from film critics and fans. However, the studio relented and put the song back in the film.

    • The hyenas Shenzi, Kamari, and Azizi are named after the Swahili words for "savage," "mighty", and "moonlight", respectively. Kamari and Azizi were originally named Banzai and Ed in the 1994 animated film, but were given African names for this film.

●     “Feature Film” – Toy Story 4

○     Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody's slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they're two worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.

○     Second Chance Antiques was one of the hardest locations for the Toy Story 4 (2019) team to create, because of the breadth of items that had to fill out the cramped second-hand store. "Fortunately, at Pixar, we have a big 'backlot' of objects from all of our feature films," production designer Bob Pauley told The Hollywood Reporter.

○     Duke Caboom is obviously inspired by real-life stunt man (turned kid's toy) Evel Knievel, right down to his Canadian garb spoofing Knievel's red-white-and-blue costume. But it goes further; Knievel's motorcycle toy was advertised on commercials like the one seen in Toy Story 4, most with the toy performing impossible feats that set expectations that the real thing could never match.

○     "It was a big treasure hunt because we have a lot of interesting history, and we also took the opportunity to plant some fun Easter eggs," added supervising technical director Bob Pauley

○     Gabby Gabby is a nod to the popular Chatty Cathy dolls of the early to mid '60s

○     Among the myriad items on shelves at the antique shop, Bing Bong's rocket from Inside Out (2015) and Ellie and Carl's house from Up (2009) can be seen.

○     Duke Caboom, a Canadian action figure toy who first appeared in Jack-Jack's crib in Incredibles 2 (2018)

○     The carnival worker has a tattoo of the pizza planet truck on the back of his leg.

●      “Feature Film” – Charlie the Lonesome Cougar

●      Charlie the Lonesome cougar is the story of an orphaned cougar cub found and raised by logger Jess Bradley. Charlie grows up in the logging cap begging scraps from cook Potlatch and dodging his nemesis, the fox terrier Chainsaw. Good-natured Charlie is friendly and curious, but this gets him into a lot of trouble, destroying multiple kitchens and just causing general mayhem because of his size and not understanding that he is a cougar not a person.

When Charlie’s misbehavior causes too much trouble in the logging camp, Jess has to keep him penned up, but bored Charlie manages to escape and meet up with a young “cougarette”. Charlie gets lost, and has to spend time out in the wild, learning to survive and to fear humans after a farmer takes a couple shots at him. When Charlie returns to the logging camp and behaves aggressively, Jess calms him down, but realizes that Charlie can’t live among humans anymore. He takes Charlie to live in a wildlife sanctuary, where he once again meets the lady cougar and settles into a happy, wild-life with her.

○    Trivia:

                                      i.        Last project approved by Disney himself

                                     ii.        First project without any assistance from Disney

                                    iii.        Four cougars played Charlie

                                   iv.        The “log rolling” scene was added later, after inspiration from a real cougar

                                    v.        The “log flume ride” wasn’t a real cougar, and you can tell if you look closely

●      “Feature Film” – Meet the Robinsons

○    Based on the book “A Day With Wilbur Robinson” Orphaned Boy genius Lewis gives up hope of any his inventions working when his Memory Scanner, which he built to try to find his mother, breaks at the science fair. It is then Lewis meets young time-traveler named Wilbur Robinson who tells him he needs to fix the Memory Scanner or it would screw up the space time continuum forever. Lewis needs convincing that Wilbur is from the future so Wilbur whisks Lewis away in his time machine. The boys spend a day in the future with Wilbur's eccentric family and learn what really makes family all while being pursued by a mysterious sinister man in a bowler hat.

○    Trivia:

i.        Started as a live action project

ii.        After their agreement with Pixar expired, Disney formed the new Walt Disney Animation Studios, of which this is the first film.

iii.        After reading the screenplay, director Stephen J. Anderson actively lobbied to direct this movie. As a child of adoption himself, Anderson personally experienced many of the emotions (questions about belonging, being wanted, etc) that Lewis expresses in the film.

iv.        The character of Lewis was voiced by both Daniel Hansen and Jordan Fry. Daniel Hansen voiced Lewis at the beginning of the film's production, but had to be recast when his voice “broke” and when Lewis needed things changed, they had Jordan Fry re-dub some segments. It is noticeable in some parts of the movie.

v.        The Robinsons' topiary garden is inspired by Walt Disney World. Large, intricate topiaries (generally of Mickey and other easily recognizable characters) have long been a staple of Disney World. Also, the Robinsons' garden features colored circular "bounce" pads; during the scenes where the characters bounce on these, they bounce in the same way as the "jumping" fountains outside the Imagination! pavilion at Epcot (which also jump from colored circles).

vi.        Director Stephen J. Anderson and actor Ethan Sandler voiced a significant amount of the cast between them. Many of these characters interact; consequently, the two spent much time in voice-over sessions together. Stephen played Bowler Hat Guy / Grandpa Bud / Tallulah  and Ethan played Doris / CEO / Spike / Dmitri / Laszlo / Fritz / Petunia

vii.        When Wilbur is revealing his family, he says his dad looks like Tom Selleck. Tom Selleck indeed provides the voice for Wilbur's Dad.

●      “Feature Film” – Dinosaur

○    Trivia: (Theme - don’t make this like the other movies)

i.        In order to separate this from the similar movie The Land Before Time (1988), the film was intended not to have any dialogue at all, but Michael Eisner of Disney insisted they include it.

ii.        The backgrounds in the movie are actually superimposed photos of exotic tropical locations such as Tahiti and Hawaii.

iii.        One original concept for the dialogue in the film would have seen the characters not moving their lips and beaks to talk but rather as voice-overs, similar to Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993).

iv.        Initially, the directors were to use the popular Tyrannosaurus as the film's antagonistic predator but at around the time of production, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) was released, which depicted a somewhat softer, motherly side to the classic dinosaur. Thus, a Carnotaurus was used. However, they still changed the Carnotaurus's size and ferocity to that of a Tyrannosaurus. In real life, Carnotaurs were smaller than Iguanodons.

 v.        At an official $130 million (unofficially $200 million) it is the most expensive movie released in 2000.

vi.        The original planned opening shot, showing the meteor moving through space, was cut when an identical opening shot was used in Armageddon (1998).

vii.        Unfortunately the Plot ended up like Tarzan in many ways

dino pic.JPG

viii.        The attraction called Dinosaur (previously called Countdown to Extinction) at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park was originally to be created/opened at the same time as the movie's release as part of the company's "synchronicity" between branches of the WDC, but due to the overwhelming technology development required to begin production, the film's opening was delayed. Even though it was started after the film was in-production, the theme park ride opened first (by almost 18 months) before the movie's release; hence, the ride's name change later.

ix.        First Disney Animated Feature Film to be Computer Animated instead of Traditionally Hand Drawn. Starting with Chicken Little (2005) 5 years later, all films in the Animated Feature Film line up would be 3D Animated, with the exceptions of The Princess and the Frog (2009) and Winnie the Pooh (2011)

●     “Feature Film” The Black Cauldron

●     Centuries ago, in the land of Prydain, a young pig keeper named Taran is given the task of protecting Hen Wen, a magical future seeing? fortune telling?, all knowing? pig, who knows the location of the mystical black cauldron. This is not an easy task, for The Evil Horned King will stop at nothing to get the power of the cauldron.Taran along with the young princess Eilonwy, the bard Fflewddur Fflam, and a wild creature named Gurgi seek to destroy the cauldron, to prevent the Horned King from ruling the world.

●     Trivia:

●     The movie is loosely based upon the first two books in Lloyd Alexander's Prydain Chronicles ("The Book of Three" and "The Black Cauldron").

●     The first Disney animated movie to not contain any songs, neither performed by characters nor in the background.

●      This movie is notable for being the first full-length Disney animated movie to incorporate computer graphics imagery (CGI) in its animation. The CGI was utilized for a lot of the special effects, which included the bubbles, a boat, a floating orb of light, the Cauldron, the realistic flames seen near the end of the movie, and the boat that Taran and his friends used to escape the castle. The dimensions and volume of the animated objects were fed into a computer and then their shapes were manipulated through computer programming before they were transferred as physical outlines the animators could work on. Despite this movie being released a year before The Great Mouse Detective (1986), both were in production simultaneously, and the computer graphics for the latter were done first. When Producer Joe Hale heard about what was being done, the possibilities made him excited, and he made the crew from The Great Mouse Detective (1986) create some computer animation for his own movie. For others effects, Animator Don Paul used live-action footage of dry ice mists to create the steam and smoke coming out of the Cauldron.

●      Tim Burton, worked as a Conceptual Artist on this movie

●      The first Disney animated theatrical movie to receive a PG rating, and had been the only one to have that rating up until The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) and Dinosaur(2000).

●      There is an urban legend that, despite the movie's failure in the U.S., it was popular in Japan, so much so, that the creator of the Legend of Zelda series, Shigeru Miyamoto, based a lot of the game's elements on this movie.

●      When the Horned King activates the power of the Black Cauldron, the sound of a space shuttle launch was used.

●     “Feature Film” The Great Mouse Detective

○   Released on July 2nd 1986. Basil, the rodent Sherlock Holmes, investigates the kidnapping of a toy-maker and uncovers its link to his arch-enemy, Professor Ratigan.

○   Thoughts and Reactions?

○   Fun Facts

■   The clock tower scene is the first major use of computer animation (the clock's gears) in a feature-length animated film. The same scene was also the first time traditionally-animated characters were put inside a computer-generated background.

■   The "Let Me Be Good To You" segment was almost cut because though brief, the lyrics and some animation was considered "too risque" for a Disney animated family film, the animators avoided a PG rating and got the scene kept in by appealing to the censors on the grounds that the segment was a Cabaret song and harmless in lyrics, and because the character animated singing it was a mouse, not a human and thus not questionable.

■   Basil of Baker Street is named after Basil Rathbone, who played Sherlock Holmes in 14 films. By strange coincidence, Basil was also a name used by a disguised Holmes in Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of Black Peter."

■   Alan Young had performed a near-perfect Scottish accent as the voice Scrooge McDuck for the 1977 Disneyland Records adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" (which he also developed and wrote). He repeated the role of McDuck in Mickey's Christmas Carol(1983), and was a natural for the Scottish accent of Hiram Flaversham.

■   The first meeting between Basil and Dawson where Basil guesses he came from Afghanistan and gives a complicated explanation how he assume it, mirrors first meeting between Holmes and Watson in Arthur Conan Doyle's "A Study in Scarlet" (the first Holmes novel) where Holmes does the same thing.

■   Production took only one year to complete thanks to the use of computers.

●     Segment: This week in Disney history “Once Upon a Time”

○   April 10th 1992 - Disney's live-action feature film musical Newsies is released in theaters.

●     Segment: News/Announcements  “The Newsies Banner”

○   Should be getting Star Wars Episode 9 Trailer the day this episode goes up.

○   Dumbo is not doing well at the box office

■   "Oh man, they could teach a film course on why Dumbo didn't work. It was like Tim Burton was going through the emotions. It felt like an expensive, uninspired story told very blandly without Disney or Burton's signature magic," says box office analyst Jeff Bock with Exhibitor Relations. "What a missed opportunity. I doubt we'll see a Burton budget like this again."

○   Avengers: Endgame Ticket Sale Chaos

■   "Endgame" set Fandango's first day pre-sales record overtaking "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." It broke the record in only six hours, the online ticket seller reported on Tuesday evening
