Brainstorming Disney Plus Enhancements with Aaron Wallace

November 15, 2022

Three years ago, the debut of the streaming service that has enabled us all to relive our favorite magical memories and make new ones, too, transformed the way we consume Disney content. Disney Plus has grown into a major vehicle for delivering outstanding original series, films, specials, and shorts, in tandem with offering a vast catalogue from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and, more recently, 20th Century Studios. On this episode of Notably Disney, host Brett Nachman welcomes back author Aaron Wallace as they brainstorm ways to enhance Disney plus, including the debut of favorite legacy titles, development of new series and specials, incorporation of more live programming, and integration of helpful features and tools.

Get in contact with Aaron Wallace by following him on Twitter (@aaronwallace), Instagram (@aaronhwallace), and on his website www.aaronwallaceonline.com, where you can learn more about his books.

That sparked the inspiration for this episode of Notably Disney, in which host Brett Nachman brings back to the podcast Dan Heaton (host, The Tomorrow Society Podcast), to pose a series of tough musical choices. Each Dan and Brett present 10 sets of Walt Disney World-themed music options to one another and discuss their preferences.
