WALT DISNEY

The man we know as Walt Disney was born at the turn of the twentieth century in Chicago USA.

His name is synonmous with sound and vision animation.

He was the pioneer of cartoon films and the brainchild behind the entertainment theme parks we all know around the world today.

He married an artist Lilian Bounds in 1925 and she played an instrumental part in the early stages of developing a Disney brand.

Walt Disney had always had a great love for drawing and he was known to be a daydreamer.

His first success came with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto soon followed.

In fact, Walt Disney himself was the voice of Mickey Mouse for many years.

 

His wife Lilian could not have minded being cast as the wicked Queen when Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs became his first full-length animation movie in 1937.

The inspiration came from a trip to Russia in the late 1920s when it is said that he fell in love with a beautiful blonde haired girl whom he later modelled to be Snow White.

With his wife beside him, this was a love for a woman never to be returned.  The Snow White movie tells the tale as only he can.

 

Wlt Disney as on a roll through the war time years which saw the production and success of Pinnochio, Dumbo and Cinderella among others.

More than one hundred feature films were produced by the Disney Brothers Studio during his lifetime, the last of which was Mary Poppins in 1964.

Walt Disney succumbed to lung cancer in 1965 aged 65 but the dynasty he built lives on to this day.
