EPISODE 49: Bolt (2008)

Welcome to the 49th episode of The Castle Vault! In this week’s journey exploring the famed Disney Vault through the Disney Plus streaming service, we make the impossible possible with … Bolt!

In this episode, we feel super and talk about a show within a movie, on this show, for the film Bolt! With a superhero dog, a cat that’s a protector of pigeons, and a hamster who’s rolling his way across America, what’s not to like? Even if the movie overstays its welcome a bit, it’s still a fun movie flooded with action-film tropes, and a lot of heart. But where will it land on The Hierarchy? We also have all of our fun segments that we do weekly, including another incredible World of Color Brain round and the next installment of Chillin’ Like a Villain!

Welcome to the 48th episode of The Castle Vault! In this week’s journey exploring the famed Disney Vault through the Disney Plus streaming service, we keep moving forward with … Meet the Robinsons!

In this episode, we look ahead to the future to remember the past with the 2007 animated film, Meet the Robinsons! This movie is all about family, but the main plot device is time travel, which is always way more complicated than it should be. With an exceptional cast of characters and story filled with heart and emotions, it is definitely signaling a new era of Disney. But where will it land on The Hierarchy?

In this episode, we discuss a movie that’s widely considered to be a drastic shift in direction for Disney Animated Studios, the 2005 film Chicken Little! Disney definitely wanted to try something new with this film, but literally smashing two different movies together into one was a bold choice for sure. But where will it land on The Hierarchy?

In this episode, we discuss a movie that LITERALLY no one knew existed before this podcast – the 2004 film Home on the Range! Despite one of the best, most talented, voice acting lineups we’ve seen here on The Castle Vault, the movie was missing something. But what? Has a Disney movie ever squandered so much potential? But where will it land on The Hierarchy?

In this episode, we are joined by the one, the only, THE Atari Alex, as we discuss the box office flop but cult classic film, Treasure Planet! Sure, there are space whales, but it’s also a classic swashbuckling pirates tale set in space. With cyborgs, morphing blobs, flatulent aliens, and the most divisive robot in existence, there’s a ton to talk about with Treasure Planet. And that’s before even mentioning The Goo Goo Dolls! But where will it land on The Hierarchy? We also have all of our fun segments that we do weekly, including another incredible World of Color Brain round and the next installment of Chillin’ Like a Villain!

In this episode, we are joined by friend of the show Vince to help us discuss the criminally underrated Disney classic, Lilo & Stitch! This movie is all about family, and finding what you’re missing in life, and for that, this story is beautiful. And seriously … who doesn’t love that adorable space alien Experiment 626, aka Stitch? He’s pretty much the best. But where will it land on The Hierarchy?

EPISODE 42: Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)

Welcome to the 42nd episode of The Castle Vault! In this week’s journey exploring the famed Disney Vault through the Disney Plus streaming service, we take a deep dive into … Atlantis: The Lost Empire!

In this episode, we discuss the radically different yet oddly enjoyable Disney film from 2001, Atlantis: The Lost Empire! This film can easily be considered an unappreciated Disney film like no other, but it’s ridiculously fast-paced action makes it hard to fit everything in to one movie. It definitely doesn’t FEEL like a “normal” Disney movie. But where will it land on The Hierarchy? We also have all of our fun segments that we do weekly, including another incredible World of Color Brain round and the next installment of Chillin’ Like a Villain!

Welcome to the 41st episode of The Castle Vault! In this week’s journey exploring the famed Disney Vault through the Disney Plus streaming service, we get into the groove with … The Emperor’s New Groove!

In this episode, we discuss the THIRD film that Disney released in 2000, which was drastically different than the last two! Emperor’s New Groove is super quotable and full of one-liners, but it seems to be missing some of that classic Disney magic. But let’s be real here – Kronk is the real MVP, right? But where will it land on The Hierarchy? We also have all of our fun segments that we do weekly, including another incredible World of Color Brain round and the next installment of Chillin’ Like a Villain!
