Lee Unkrich: “I spoke with Julian Senior, the WB publicist who tours the Japanese crew around, when I first saw this footage two years ago. He told me that Stanley was actually at the studio that day, but didn’t want to meet with the crew and be interviewed on camera. So, in the bit where Julian is getting Stanley on the phone for them, he’s actually just in another office! It’s funny watching Julian pretend to be calling Stanley elsewhere once you know this tidbit.”
