What happens in this episode?

With Premier Access, Disney+ subscribers can watch the latest Disney live-action “re-imaging” with Mulan. Originally slated for a cinema release before COVID-19 and now being used to test the waters of streaming from Disney, does this finally break the curse of soulless remakes? Our hosts discuss this and also some of the potentially more problematic elements of the film’s release.

There’s also a dash of Our Cinematic Week where Christian revisits classic Ardman animations featuring Wallace and Gromit while Iain takes a look at a potentially forgotten Batman animated movie with Mystery of the Batwoman.

And for you video game fans, there’s even a slight chat about Nintendo’s Mario celebration plans and the Uncharted series. Cross medium podcasting at it’s finest!
