Disney In Depth: A Retrospective and Farewell
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Five years ago, I embarked on an exciting chapter in my life. I started to write for Geeks of Doom with a column based on my greatest diversion: Disney. Now, reaching this momentous milestone, I reflect on my experiences in writing about the House of Mouse, share some thoughts about the value of The Walt Disney Company in our lives, and say good-bye for now to the column that has continually enriched my life. Please indulge me as I offer a retrospective that also gives context to the meaning of Disney to me, and likely fellow Disney aficionados.

Disney In Depth: Recognizing The Next Disney Legends
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two years ago, in light of the D23 Expo 2015, I named six individuals paramount to the success of The Walt Disney Company who should be named Disney Legends, the highest honor that can be bestowed. I think it is inevitable that Joe Rodhe, for instance, renowned Imagineer with those awesome earrings, who I contended should become a Disney Legend, will one day attain that honor. This prompted me to reflect on individuals within The Walt Disney Company, whether they have more recently joined the corporation or have been directly or indirectly part of its framework, who have a high chance of being recognized as Disney Legends at some point.

I had planned on publishing a column about the next set of individuals who would likely be recognized as Disney Legends, but The Walt Disney Company beat me to the punch by recently issuing a press release of its nine forthcoming Disney Legends. You’ll have to take my word that I predicted Stan Lee, Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill would be named as Disney Legends this year. That said, I am excited to share my thoughts on these four, as well as five others, who will obtain this major honor at the D23 Expo.

Brett Nachman   |  @   |

The tale as old as time is timeless, and so is its music. With the recent release of Disney’s smash success Beauty and the Beast, let’s unpack the music box that is the film’s soundtrack. With all of the original tunes from the 1991 film, as well as some new additions, this new version blends classic and contemporary almost seamlessly, with a few exceptions.

Here is my review of the soundtrack for the 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast.

Disney In Depth: Revisit These Overlooked Disney Songs (Part 2)
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

More Disney songs, specifically from the past 15 years, more or less, are most upsettingly forgotten in light of a few breakout pieces. “Let it go,” I tell myself, tongue in cheek. There are memorable songs beyond the realm of Frozen, Tangled, and Moana.

In this Disney In Depth I follow-up part one of my list of overlooked Disney songs with ten more that deserve multiple listens – and downloads, too, should they be accessible.

Disney In Depth: Revisit These Overlooked Disney Songs (Part 1)
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Hundreds of new Disney songs surfaced in the past few decades, many of them defining our childhood and young adult years. We listened to them on an endless loop via our cassettes and CDs. Many tunes, however, may have escaped our memories or even not entered our lives at all. The world of Disney music is vast in both scope and setting, ranging from our television screens and home video to the theme parks and on stage.

This first edition of a two-part feature on Disney In Depth explores the songs you may have missed or forgotten, but should very well revisit.

Disney In Depth: Book Review: Maps Of The Disney Parks
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Maps of the Disney Parks
Hardcover
Text By Kevin and Susan Neary
Maps Curated by Vanessa Hunt
Publisher: Disney Editions
Release date: October 18, 2016

How would we live without maps? They give us direction and purpose. Some lead us down new paths. Others familiarize us with common settings. The park maps we snatch upon entering any of the Disney theme parks accomplish just this. Even more, the meta atmosphere of Disney often means there are maps within maps. Thankfully a new book from Disney Editions titled Maps of the Disney Parks compiles both the dated and novel park maps, as well as maps featured within the park settings.

Duo Kevin and Susan Neary, along with Disney Imagineer Vanessa Hunt, have produced a wonderful publication of lush visuals galore that should nicely complement your edition of Hunt’s Poster Art of the Disney Parks.
