Jerry Rees, the multi-talented director/writer/artist returns to The Disney Project Podcast to give us an update on what he's currently working on, but more importantly to tell us what it was like to work with Robin Williams on the 1989 Disney Park short Back to Neverland. Jerry's memories of Robin are priceless, and a great tribute to the talent we lost too soon.

This month we're joined by Estelle Hallick from This Happy Place Blog, as she shares some of her Muppet love and expertise with us. Jeff Heimbuch got lost on his way home on the day of recording, so it's just Keith and Estelle chatting about the film Muppets Most Wanted, the excellent advertising campaigns the Muppets seem to find themselves in, and their current and future presence in the Disney Parks.

A few months ago, when the film Escape From Tomorrow was still kind of relevant, four friends decided via Twitter to chat about the film in an episode of this podcast. Corralling said four friends took a little longer than planned. Beloved Twitter celebrities @EPCOTExplorer and @Epcot_Prime join Keith and Jeff for a very fun discussion on the controversial "film", and even share their theories on just what the heck it was about.

Keith and Jeff had a topic all planned out for episode 13, but since it became pushed back a month, they decided to chat about Keith's recent Walt Disney World trip instead. Jeff asks Keith about the 2013 Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and Keith tells Jeff all about the day when the Carousel of Progress was closed for the filming of Brad Bird's Tomorrowland. The two also chat about the newly-released Maleficent trailer, and a few other tidbits.

Friend of The Disney Project Jeff Heimbuch returns to debate an interesting topic: would an actual "Yesterland Park" work? Keith and Jeff discuss the pros and cons of creating an entire Disney Park consisting of both extinct and never-realized attractions, while also offering up a practical solution for Disney's current theme parks.

Jerry returns to wrap up the wonderfully successful Jerry Rees month over at The Disney Project. This time the topic is a little film he directed called CinéMagique, which just so happens to be the best in-park film Disney has ever done. In episode 8, Keith (maybe the world's biggest CinéMagique fan) challenged Jerry to stump him with some trivia questions about the film. Jerry comes prepared, with a full "baker's dozen" of questions, ready to give Keith a run for his money.

This is a podcast no CinéMagique fan should miss!
