Podcast: Luca / Top 3 Coming of Age Scenes in Animated Films – Episode 435

This week’s episode is brought to you by TeePublic and the InSession Film Store. Get your InSession Film T-shirt today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Pixar’s latest in Luca and our Top 3 coming-of-age scenes in animated movies! Plus, JD gives a few brief thoughts on F9 since he will be out next week.

This may just be the quintessential JD/Brendan episode. It’s always a fun time when we get to talk about Pixar, or animation generally, but it’s even more poignant when we get to discuss coming-of-age stories in film. It’s a “genre” that we deeply love and it fits animation immaculately. So, discussing the best coming-of-age scenes in the world of animation just seems too perfect for us. And spoiler alert, we had a ton of fun with it on this week’s episode.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Coming of Age Scenes in Animated Films (1:12:51)
As mentioned above, this topic is right up our alley in just about every way. Coming-of-age stories are very personal to us, and when coupled with animation it often makes for some magical experiences. Which is to say, there is no shortage of great scenes to pick from for our lists, making this exercise a bit challenging. But also a lot of fun simultaneously. That said, what would be your top 3?
