The Pagemaster in all its glory.

Episode 40 – The Pagemaster

The Pagemaster is a classic to some and a horror story for others. Who would have thought an animated film about books and head trauma induced hallucinations from 1994 would spark a fairly large (at the time) controversy during its production? Or that such a movie would have a majorly star studded cast? Often, this movie is discussed New as being fairly terrible. But we aren’t so sure…

Come with us on a journey into imagination and wonder as we follow Richard Tyler into the realms of Horror, Adventure, and Fantasy in a quest to conquer his fears. This movie may have many faults, but it also has heart. Honestly, how did a movie with such an amazing cast get made outside of Disney? This was during Disney’s second golden age, for crying out loud.

Highlights: Christopher Lloyd, Patrick Stewart, Whoopi Goldberg, EGOT, Frank Welker, Leonard Nimoy, George Hearn, Jim Cummings, Phil Hartman, Ed Gilbert, BJ Ward, Robert Picardo, James Horner, Baby Face, David Kirschner, David Casci, WGA, Star Trek, The Lion King, Roger Ebert, Ed Begley Jr., Macaulay Culkin
