‘In the Heights’ Creates a Competitive Box Office, ‘Loki’ Streams, and ‘Winnie the Pooh’

by Collin Willis

In the Heights, the first in a slew of musicals this year, arrived this past week in theaters and on HBO Max. Its arrival helped create the first genuinely competitive box office in nearly a year and a half. Brennan and I talk about why it might not be underperforming, as well as our reactions to the film. Additionally, we talk about Disney+’s attempts to make Wednesdays the new Fridays with Loki. Where does it fall in our rankings of MCU television?

Later we discuss the end of my Disney Animation rewatch and what I gleaned from my 84 year trip through the Walt Disney canon. And because there’s never enough discourse over a Disney property, Brennan and I watch 2011’s Winnie the Pooh for this week’s Babble Movie Club.

All this, some Bud Luckey trivia, and more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast.
