What a shame that Disney buried this thing.
2 January 2019 | by matthewssilverhammerSee all my reviews

It's easily the most in-depth and well-made look at how the studio is run, leaving in both the good and the bad. Sting's roller coaster of emotions as the contracted help is a great emotional anchor, even if he comes off a bit self-righteous. Banning this was a mistake; if anything, I just have more respect for how Disney makes its animated features.
