Over the past few years, Disney has been adding mature themes to their family friendly films. Frozen has themes of family love vs. romantic love, Zootopia tackles racism and tolerance, and the live action Jungle Book discusses identity. Andy from the DCast joins Josh to discuss these themes and why Disney is doing it. Is it good or bad for business? Are children picking up on these themes and is it thought provoking to them. Andy himself has 3 adopted children and is a pastor at his church so he brings his opinions and voice to a polarizing topic!

Also be sure to check out TheDCast.com to hear more of Andy and more. Plus contact him on Twitter @AndyHerndon or @TheDCast to chat more about this episode!

Zootopia Tsum Tsums

Zootopia is Disney Animation’s newest film coming out in March 2016. Part of any new release from Disney animation is marketing and merchandise, so of course Keith bought into some pretty great tsum tsums. He also breaks down each character in the tsum tsum set and makes a guess at which of these characters might be the villain of the movie.

***From August 1st-31st we will be doing a t-shirt sale and 20% of our earnings will be going to Together We Rise – a charity to help foster kids get a leg up and we will be specifically donating to them to help kids go on a fun vacation to Disneyland and help them make new friends! Buy a shirt to help support Modern Mouse Radio and Together We Rise***

This week’s focus is a little different than the regular Modern Mouse Radio show! Every 2 years Disney holds their own convention that at this point could rival San Diego Comic Con and it’s called the D23 Expo. Since 2009 it’s been held at the Anaheim Convention Center just a few blocks from the Disneyland Resort.

This year, the Expo was attended by Keith, Angie, Josh, and Erika of the Modern Mouse Crew and since all four are constant contributors to the website and this being a special episode of Modern Mouse, we figured it might be best to check in with everyone on what they thought of this year’s big Disney convention. The crew discusses their overall thoughts on the Expo as well as getting into the big announcements that included upcoming animated and live action films, coming attractions to the Disney parks around the world, and what’s coming from Disney Interactive in video game content. All of that plus discussion on the best and worst of the Expo!
