After completing preproduction in Burbank, CA, some of us packed up and moved to Paris for a year as the film made its way through production. This photo is from that time - me, Catherine Rascon (assistant editor) and Greg Perler, the film’s editor. #D23GoofyMovie pic.twitter.com/hKau2sYsS0— Kevin Lima (@GoofyMovieDir) April 11, 2020
Anyone got these?
Everyone loves to talk about this one
Recently I did a podcast about A GOOFY MOVIE with Jason Marsden and we discovered that we share a most favorite scene in the movie. To me it’s remarkable that we were able to add so many new layers of emotion to a character that’s been around for as long as Goofy. #D23GoofyMovie pic.twitter.com/PbGf50iWWf— Kevin Lima (@GoofyMovieDir) April 11, 2020

Setting the record straight
POWERLINE! It’s often been rumored that Powerline is Bobby Brown. Honestly, he was conceived as a combination of Prince, Michael Jackson and yes, Bobby Brown. #D23GoofyMovie pic.twitter.com/EkNNqGhw2n— Kevin Lima (@GoofyMovieDir) April 11, 2020
