Happy Thanksgiving! On this week’s super-sized holiday episode, Jeffrey Epstein and Candice Valdez from the D23 Inside Disney podcast join us to give us the inside scoop on the official Disney podcast, and they share behind-the-scenes stories of the show, which they publish weekly along with their third co-host Sheri Alzeerah. We talk about the state of Disney fandom, the variety of Disney properties, and the inspiration behind the show. Then, Chris Buckley, animation director of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special and Head of 3D Animation for Atomic Cartoons, joins us to talk about his career in animation, and speaks with us about how the Star Wars galaxy and LEGO combine to make a funny, engaging world the entire family can enjoy. Chris talks about LEGO humor, disobeying the laws of physics, Boba Fett piloting the Falcon – and more. Finally, Kristen Carr checks in after a morning on the recently-reopened Buena Vista Street! She talks to us about the shopping, the eating – including Carthay Circle – and most of all, the cast members who make the Disney magic feel so real. Plus – our holiday gift suggestions.. and more.
