Prop Culture Review

In the old days of Hollywood, movie props weren’t cherished or saved. Once a production was finished shooting, a lot of props were either thrown out, repurposed, or lost somewhere along the way. As time went on, people began to hold items from their favorite movies in high regard, and movie props became treasured artifacts. Today, movie props are some of the most expensive collector’s items out there, often selling for hundreds to thousands of dollars at auction.

That brings us to a new Disney+ documentary series called Prop Culture, which follows film historian and prop collector Dan Lanigan as he tracks down movie props from some of Disney’s most iconic films over the years. Like a kid in a candy store, Lanigan travels around the United States, meeting filmmakers, actors, production crew members, and fellow collectors so he can either see a rare item from Disney’s film history, or show one off for a sentimental reunion and fascinating conversation about movies ranging from Mary Poppins to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
