So for the past month or so there has been a ton going on behind the scenes. Modern Mouse has been working with some other Disney personalities to create a new “Network” and we are calling it Network 1901. Our goal is to bring you as much quality Disney content as possible on a weekly basis. We are starting off with 3 podcasts a week, frequent YouTube videos, and blog posts. We are going to cover everything under the Disney umbrella.
So what does that mean for Modern Mouse? You’ll still be able to find content here, especially the show notes and podcast episodes, but we encourage you to join us at Network1901.com for more content and to explore things that we at Modern Mouse don’t even get a chance to cover. For more info, check out our video below and stay tuned for more details on this week’s Modern Mouse Radio podcast on Wednesday!
Josh is joined by Jordan Duncan, a coordinator at the Museum of Puppetry Arts and a long time Muppets fan. They discuss the recent cancellation of The Muppets on television and ask, “What’s Next for the Muppets?” As Disney grows, it seems like every division continues to be a homerun. Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and so on, have all found their stride and are major successes for Disney, but The Muppets franchise continues to feel lost without knowing where to really go with it. Is it a nostalgia act? Can it be modern? Is it for adults? Is it for children? We try to answer all of these questions and more!
Be sure to follow Jordan on Twitter (@JordanGhastly) or on Instagram to chat more about Muppets, Jim Henson, or the Puppetry Arts in general.
Josh is joined by James Carter from the Creepy Kingdom podcast this week to talk about his newest venture, a full length documentary about the Haunted Mansion attraction and it’s loyal and unique fan base. James has just started filming and will be looking to put out the film at the beginning of next year. He is on the show to promote and gain some buzz around the project.
If you are interested in donating to the film’s Kickstarter, make sure to do so as there are some great perks involved. Also be sure to check out FoolishMortalsDoc.com for all of the news around the film!
