- 'Prop Culture' takes a look at the props that brought classic Disney movies to life.
Disney Plus has had its fair share of original content that allows viewers to take a look behind-the-scenes at what makes the Disney parks and movies great. The streamer launched with The Imagineering Story which allowed people to look at how the Disney parks around the world came to life. One Day At Disney and Disney Insider take a look at the various people working around The Walt Disney Company.
Prop Culture is the latest show to premiere on Disney Plus and it looks at the iconic props that made classic movies come to life. Host and collector Dan Lanigan takes a trip talking to filmmakers, actors, and artists who were involved with each movie. Every episode focuses on movies including Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mary Poppins, Tron, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Muppet Movie, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.
Prop Culture is full of nostalgia and heartwarming stories which allows people to gain a deeper appreciation for the work that goes into movies. The first episode that looks at Mary Poppins shows how many of the props from the movie got lost. Which made it more meaningful when those who had part of the film encountered the few props that survived. Choreographer Dee Dee Wood got to touch one of the original chimney sweep brooms after years it was one of the most heartwarming moments.
Another notable episode was the episode that focuses on Tron. Tron flopped when the movie was released in 1982 but became a cult classic years later. Lanigan meets with actor Bruce Boxleitner and Boxleitner reunited with his costume from the movie. The episode shows how much attention and how filmmakers loved to create it.
Prop Culture is full of nostalgia and packs a heartwarming punch. The stories by the people who had their hand in creating movies showed how much goes into making works of arts for people to see.
Prop Culture released all eight episodes at once, which allows fans to binge watch at once. Its a show that delivers with its charm and gives movie buffs a chance to learn something new.
