In this episode of the podcast, I interview the creator of the wildly popular Spice Girl franchise, Jojo, to find out why Jojo’s got such a devoted fanbase, what it’s like to work on a film for the first time, and how she decided to bring Jojo to life in the first place.
Jojo’s Adventures in Sausage Land features the adventures of Jojo and the gang of misfits and misfits (as you’d expect) who get caught in the middle of a massive war between humans and monsters.
The film is a sci-fi classic and it was one of the first films to be released on home video.
You can find out more about Jojo at the BBC and here on New Scientist.
In this episode, I also talk to Jojo writer/director Alex Gansa about his approach to the story and the challenges of writing a film that is a sequel to a cult classic.
Alex has also worked on films including The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and The Secret Life of Bees.
You can find more of Alex’s work at his website and you can follow him on Twitter @alexgansa.
