Disney Comic-Con Press Conference: Frankenweenie and Oz: The Great and Powerful

While Disney held its annual Comic-Con panel today, they gave press members the option of attending a more intimate press conference where we could talk to the talent on hand from the movies they were promoting. Which mean that for about 30 mins a piece we’d have the opportunity to ask the likes of Tim Burton, Atticus Shaffer, Sam Raimi, Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams about the projects they worked on. Having not seen either film or the Oz teaser trailer beforehand, it was a bit difficult to ask about the films, but the press on hand proved more than adept at not making that a big issue. Overall, everyone was very lovely, answering questions about previous films, stop motion animation, green screen acting, and even a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Full audio available after the jump!
