I am the creator of Electric Dragon Productions which includes AniMat's Reviews and AniMat's Classic Reviews.

    I am honestly surprised you didn’t talk about another big news in animation this week: That Mark Osbourne, the director of Kung Fu Panda and The Little Prince is set to direct a film adaption, and possibly trilogy, of Jeff Smith’s Bone comic that has been in development at Warner Brothers and Animal Logic for quite sometime. Maybe in next week’s podcast you’ll bring it up.
