"The Imagineers were lost, unable to find the right concept for a thrilling, family friendly experience that would be remembered for the ages until Disney CEO Bob Iger suggested they base their ride around the latest Disney movie..."

Behind the Attraction is another show they're working on. When that gets released, I don't know. It was announced last October.

It just seems endless ripe. The Pirates of the Caribbean episode was a bit in-depth. They could explore more rides and attractions in a similar way, other aspects of Imagineering not covered.

Is there word on future episodes?

I could not get enough of this show. Loved every minute of every episode. Great stuff, IMO!

I agree. I’ve heard so much negative things about Eisner but all the bad things happened after Wells died. I really feel for him. I can’t imagine losing someone I was so close to so tragically. It really is sad watching him do a 180. Grief is tough, especially when you lose someone tragically. Starting episode 5 now. This series is way realer than I imagined(pun intended) but I just feel like they’ll make Iger a savior.

Hey everyone... if you, like me, dug the soundtrack to The Imagineering Story, you may be pleased to learn that the full soundtrack is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, etc... Here's the album link for Spotify: Enjoy...

I’ve been watching the show over the last two days, and I just started episode 5. I don’t want to discredit Iger, because he did do good things. The cost cutting of the 90s really harmed the parks, and he helped turn DCA around. However. I know what ended up happening to DCA recently. And what’s happening with Future World. And what happened to Great Movie Ride. And now I’m sad.

To really appreciate the OG Pirates today, one has to have nostalgia or admire and understand the story at a deeper level than the average brain dead guest would. The technology and effects don't wow like they did when the ride opened.

I took that more as the Imagineer noting the cultural differences that they needed to adapt to in order to create something that would have been more exciting for Shanghai guests. But I get it - it feels personal when someone indicates that Pirates isn’t the amazing attraction that it is. I am really sad we’re not seeing any more episodes. Every update felt like a Disney parks fan’s dream (ignoring some of the obvious skips and propaganda.) The cleaned up vintage footage, the exclusive bits of art, photos and video of things from the archives never released was incredible. The EPCOT CENTER stuff blew my mind.

Man,I Miss this series. It was one of my favorite parts of Disney+....Just seeing Walt and the Imagineers working on the rides we all know and loved was so special. I agree it got a little bit of "Iger saves the day" at the end but I can look past it.

The weird propaganda in the last two episodes made them a bit hard to watch, but I really enjoyed the rest of the series. I hope they'll release some expansions of some of the parks at some point, and maybe years down the line they can revisit the last two episodes and make them not as contradictory. One thing that stuck out to me was in the 6th episode when they kept putting down Pirates of the Caribbean to push the Shanghai one.

Interesting on the Verizon ads for Disney+ that the women says “there is something special about a Disney movie” and then they show clips from Star Wars and Marvel movies. “Disney” is just now the broad marketing umbrella for all of these “family” brands.
