Lately it seems like you can’t turn around without seeing another Disney live action remake. We’ve got Dumbo! And Aladdin! And Lion King! But that’s just the tip of the Disney iceberg.
In this episode, Amanda White returns to talk with me about all the live action movies that have come before (most of which – surprise! – I haven’t seen) and all the ones slated to come next. And, in our continued quest to be timely and relevant (ha!), we debate the value of Maleficent, the 2014 movie starring Angelina Jolie, as well as the definition of live action when it comes to movies about animals that talk. Tune in for all this and more!
And don’t forget to get your FREE copy of Tales as Old as Time, my devotional inspired by Beauty & the Beast! (Click here to get it right now!)
