Episode 48

Encanto (2021)

The meeting of minds is back! This week, Ross is hosting, while the gang review and pitch sequels for the 2021 Disney animation musical feast, Encanto! Directed by Jared Bush and Byron Howard and starring Brooklyn 99's Stephanie Beatriz, John Leguizamo, Diane Guerrero, Maria Cecilia Botero, Jessica Darrow, with instant ear-worm songs such as We Don't Talk About Bruno, The Family Madrigal and Surface Pressure from the man who continues to be the man of the moment in musical movies right now, Lin Manuel Miranda

You can expect Matt talking about his new twins and finding movie inspiration in them, four white British dudes just massacring the pronunciations of Spanish words and names (we are so sorry), a little bit of real talk about mental health, and the best opening of any episode of Sequel Pitch yet, hands down

Drew Toynbee

Drew is a husband and dad who has been listening to podcasts for ten years and is very excited to have finally come up with an idea for one that people might actually like, which handily ties together his lifelong love of film, and some of his best friends.

When he's not coming up with sequel ideas, editing the show or watching movies, he is a freelance podcast editor and producer with several products on the go, or you can find him spending time with his family and pets, doing DIY, playing Dungeons & Dragons or videogames, or dabbling in a bit of music or amateur dramatics.

Matt Rushton

Matt is an actor, gamer, and wannabe Viking. He has used lockdown as the perfect excuse to keep growing his hair!

His favourite way to spend time is through some form of escapism - be that acting, playing an assortment of different characters in Dungeons & Dragons or video games, or simply immersing himself in characters’ lives playing out in movies & TV shows.

He apparently enjoys these even more when he gets to share the experience with his fellow Pitchers!

Andy Henry

It all started on a cold February morning in 1989, suddenly he was born.

Since then, Andy has loved nothing more than watching movies. He was a film extra when he was younger and now writes, acts and directs his own short films.

He's also a gamer; not a great one but he has a go. He gets too carried away when playing Dungeons and Dragons and is training for next years world Thumb War championship with his gladiator, Donald Thumbp.
