On the beat of themed entertainment. New season debuts January 2022. A production of No Midnight Media.

May 20, 2020

Between sequels, prequels, and remakes, Disney seems to have no problem “going back to the well” these days. That wasn’t always the case.

For 53 years, each Disney story was unique. That began to change in the 90s, first on the big screen, and 26 years ago, in white vinyl VHS cases across the world.

On this episode of Theme Park Time Machine, Adam explores the advent of the Disney sequel, and the direct-to-video feature, starting with Aladdin: The Return of Jafar.
