#156 | The Disney Renaissance: A Whole New World (feat. @kuroverse)

Following the success of “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” in 1988, Walt Disney Feature Animation experienced a resurgence of interest in their films. This “Disney Renaissance” led to the creation of a string of critically-acclaimed blockbuster films between 1989 and 1999, including “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and The Beast,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,” “Mulan,” and more. Join the Say Something Nice Crew and artist extraordinaire Tim as we discuss the secrets behind the magic of these animated classics and the people who brought them to life.
