The talent and legacy of Disney Legend Marc Davis is on display in this week's episode of Mousetalgia. In honor of the upcoming exhibit titled "Leading Ladies and Femme Fatales: The Art of Marc Davis" at the Walt Disney Family Museum, Mousetalgia welcomes Imagineer Chris Merritt to the show to talk about the influence Marc Davis had on his own career, and the incredible talent that Davis displayed throughout his career working as Disney animator and Imagineer. Also, Jeff travels to Wondercon in Anaheim and talks about the convention experience and two panels: "The Art of the Pitch" hosted by Disney/ABC, and "Frozen: The Art of Story" hosted by Disney Feature Animation. The panels explored the value of story and communicating your message, and the Frozen panel offered behind-the-scenes stories from the artists that worked on developing the script and story for the Academy Award-winning film. Plus - Star Wars day is this week, and we divulge our secret plans to celebrate on May 4... and more!
