We here at the WDWNT Network are proud to announce that we were able to obtain an interview with actor Lee Arenberg, who played the part of Pintel in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The interview was conducted by John Rick and Tom Corless for The Disney Pincast, but will also air on some of the other podcasts of the WDWNT Network this weekend. In the interview, Arenberg tells us about working on the epic Pirates of the Caribbean film trilogy, being a part of a Disney attraction, the importance of the movie premieres inside Disneyland, and some of his other work notable works, including Seinfeld, Star Trek, and a host of other shows. You can hear the interview now by listening to episode #60 of the Disney Pincast (download on iTunes or listen through the site), or you can wait until Sunday when the interview will air on the WDW News Today Podcast and the Disneyland News Today Podcast.
Reported by our big brother site, WDW News Today:

Mischievous Simba is well aware that as the son of Mufasa, he’s next in line to rule over all the other critters as king.

I just want to ask for everyones opinion on the way our Image Gallery is set up. At the moment it’s not viewable, & we’re of course working on getting it back up. But what I want to know, is when it returns, do you want it to be arranged the way it always has been (by park) or split up into my various trips to the Disneyland Resort. There is a poll on the sidebar to the right & I’d like to ask everyone to voice their opinion.
