The title says it all.
1923 is when Walt Disney and his brother Roy decided to start Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio which later became Walt Disney Productions which then became what we know as The Walt Disney Company as we know it today. But as you see now, animation is what started it all.
90 years later, the Walt Disney Animation Studios still makes great feature animation films for all of us to enjoy including their most recent creation “Frozen”! Films like these and all the past 52 films have had one thing in common: story. It’s what we think makes an animated film really come to life and the blend of an artful hand and great storytelling is at the heart of what future 52+ Disney animated films will have!
Just yesterday, Disney CEO Bob Iger, Animation Creative John Lasseter, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn, and Disney Animation President Ed Catmull hosted a cocktail reception on the Walt Disney Studios lot for pretty much everyone who has been involved with animation for all these years. Special guests included Disney Legends Tony Anselmo (voice of Donald Duck), Bill Farmer (voice of Goofy), Disney Archives founder Dave Smith, Directors Ron Clements (“Aladdin”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph”), the even the cast of crew of “Frozen”.
