Geek Speak dusts their mouse ears off again this week. This time they're gonna talk about the renaissance for Disney, the years 1988-1998 where some of their most beloved films were produced. Featured this week:
The Lion King – Tricked into thinking he killed his father, a guilt ridden lion cub flees into exile and abandons his identity as the future King.
The Rescuers Down Under – The R.A.S. agents, Miss Bianca and Bernard, race to Australia to save a boy and a rare golden eagle from a murderous poacher.
Hercules – The son of the Greek Gods Zeus and Hera is stripped of his immortality as an infant and must become a true hero in order to reclaim it.
Aladdin – Aladdin, a street urchin, accidentally meets Princess Jasmine, who is in the city undercover. They love each other, but she can only marry a prince.
They also discuss all the other classic Disney movies of that era, Disney video games, Thanksgiving, Family Guy killing off a main character, country music, and more.
