    Two Princes: Part Two

    Two Princes: Part Two

    After Paramount Pictures' 1974 version of The Little Prince seemingly vanished into thin air, it would be decades before another big screen version would come around. 
    That version would be fully animated, with a voice cast that included Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Benicio Del Toro, James Franco, Ricky Gervais, Paul Giamatti and Marion Cotillard. But Paramount abruptly abandoned plans to release the film, and in this episode, The Little Prince director Mark Osborne explains what he thinks went wrong.
    Plus, Patrick Oliver Jones of the Why I'll Never Make It podcast talks to the makers of the new Broadway version of The Little Prince that just opened last week.

    Two Princes: Part One

    Two Princes: Part One

    Joseph Tandet was a lawyer who was not in The Industry. But when the opportunity arose to own the rights to The Little Prince, he took it.
    He wound up as a producer on a big-budget movie adaptation. The 1974 version of The Little Prince had everything going for it, including Gene Wilder, musical numbers by Lerner & Loewe, Bob Fosse dancing, and Stanley Donen in what should have been his element. But something went wrong between the page and the screen. 
    Several years after Tandet's movie of The Little Prince became a forgotten memory, he used his ownership of the rights again, this time to mount a stage version that would never officially open.
    This episode is a crossover with the Why I'll Never Make It podcast and features host Patrick Oliver Jones doing most of the hosting duties here. It also features both Little Princes: Steven Warner from the 1974 film and Anthony Rapp (Star Trek Discovery) from the 1982 Broadway edition.

    The Greatest Cartoon Almost Made

    The Greatest Cartoon Almost Made

    At the height of his career, Richard Williams was hailed as the next Walt Disney. He wanted to prove that animation was high art, not just something to sell toys and cereal. So he spent three decades working on a single film called The Thief and The Cobbler, which was going to be extraordinary. But he made a deal with a movie studio that he couldn't keep.
    This episode of Imaginary Worlds features Garrett Gilchrist, Kevin Schreck, Neil Boyle and Greg Duffell discuss whether Hollywood or Williams's perfectionism did him in.

    The Fall and Rise of Super Mario Bros.

    The Fall and Rise of Super Mario Bros.

    How did they make a movie out of Super Mario Bros, and why did it not really resemble the game it was based on? This episode tells the story of how Super Mario Bros went down, and how an alternate cut was found, restored — and released online this year.
    SMB screenwriter Parker Bennett, along with the curators of the Super Mario Bros archive, Ryan Hoss and Steven Applebaum, help tell this story of a maligned, misguided movie that now has cult status and genuine love.
    We also recount the time Dennis Hopper lost it.

    How Grizzly II: Revenge Was Released After 37 Years

    How Grizzly II: Revenge Was Released After 37 Years

    The 1983 horror movie Grizzly II: Revenge boasts a cast that includes George Clooney, Laura Dern, and Charlie Sheen. But it may never have been released if not for Hungarian producer Suzanne C. Nagy, who finally made it available to audiences after 37 years.
    On the latest episode of The Industry, host Dan Delgado interviews Nagy, the original producer of Grizzly II: Revenge. A sequel to the popular 1976 film Grizzly, which cashed in on the post-Jaws killer animal craze, Grizzly II: Revenge follows the story of a mama bear who attacks a large rock concert to take out her rage towards the poachers who killed her cub.

    One Man's Quest to Fix Superman IV

    One Man's Quest to Fix Superman IV

    Like many Superman fans, British actor Aaron Price grew up believing a man could fly — thanks to the spectacular 1978 Richard Donner film starring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel.
    But a decade after that film, Superman IV arrived to challenge fans' faith with a rough, budget-challenged story that pitted Supes against Nuclear Man, a forgettable villain created vis-a-vis the Cold War arms race.
    Still, Price believes the film is redeemable — and in this special bonus episode of The Industry, he explains how he is trying to restore director Sydney J. Furie's original vision for Reeve's final Superman film.
    You can follow Aaron Price and his campaign to #ReleasetheFurieCut on Twitter: He's @AaronLewisPrice.
