Greg and Jennifer bring on series co-creator, Greg Weisman, to dive into the show’s premiere episode. The choice to set it in Scotland, and how they accidently didn’t contradict actual Scottish history; the terrific script written by Michael Reaves and how he was a savior for the series; the animation and sound design; contrasting Demona and Princess Katharine; and how a show on the Disney Afternoon’s opening episode featured genocide.
