Disney Distilled Episode #31

Greetings Distillers! It’s a completely different kind of episode of Disney Distilled, as we plunge in to the world of Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast”!

It’s true that no one drinks like Gaston- unless you’re watching him in live-action. Then you drink a lot more.

This week, there is no featured drink, as we have no time to lose! Grab the nearest bottle of booze and get your Blu-Ray player or streaming service of choice ready to go, because this live-watch train is leaving the station!

But- before we get in to it, we’d like to give a special thanks to the crew of The 3 O’Clock Parade podcast for featuring Mac on the show as a special guest to plug the ongoing Indiegogo campaign for Typecast! (have you checked it out yet?)
