The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Aug 27, 2023

In a very special double episode of The Movie Defenders, we are joined this episode by friend of the show, Amy Cass! Amy is currently a Senior Assistant Production Manager at Warner Brothers Animation and has studied recently with the immortal Don Bluth! We spend the first half of our episode talking to Amy about animation... the past, present, and future. We also talk some about something she might be working on (*COUGH* James Gunn *COUGH COUGH*). After learning a lot about modern Hollywood animation we then dive into Scott's sentimental favorite Disney classic, 1973's Robin Hood! Amy brought this one to us and we jump right in to all the classic scenes, music, and Amy even clues us into a specific, new (at the time) animation style they used to make the movie. So grab your bows and arrows, suck your thumb while you're thinking about mom, and always keep the safety on 'ol Betsy. It's time for Disney's Robin Hood on The Movie Defenders Podcast!
