The Fourth is strong with Jeff as he takes on a fun-filled day packed with Star Wars activities, and the Walt Disney Family Museum welcomes its first exhibit of contemporary lowbrow art by Camille Rose Garcia. But first, Team Mousetalgia discuss their 24-hour day prep as Jeff and Dave decide to attempt to stay in Disneyland Park for 24 straight hours. Next, Jeff and Kristen review Iron Man 3, and Jeff discusses the WDFM’s press event celebrating their new Alice in Wonderland exhibit featuring works by Mary Blair and Camille Rose Garcia, and the team ponders the museum’s direction and mission. We discuss the Walt Disney Company’s focus on acquiring franchises vs. in-house creative ventures, and move into a review of Jeff’s celebration of Star Wars Day on May 4, with stops at Disneyland, Bats Day, Gallery Nucleus and a 30th anniversary screening of Return of the Jedi in Hollywood, featuring guest speaker Mark Hamill!
