193: Mulan, 20 Years Later – An Interview With Directors Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Mulan was first released in theaters? To celebrate this milestone, we’ve asked the film’s directors, Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, to take us behind the scenes of the making of the film and talk to us about the legacy the movie has built over the last two decades. Tune in to hear Tony and Barry share stories of working at the animation studio that used to be part of Disney-MGM Studios, and get an inside scoop on the film’s hidden Easter eggs, how the final film differed slightly from their original vision, and more!

Also on this week’s show, we give our take on Solo: A Star Wars Story and the latest trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet. Plus, we play another wacky round of Mad Chatter Jeopardy. Tune in now!
