Life after death

In 1968, Disney was awarded the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal. There is also a widespread version of the multiplier freezing in a cryogenic chamber, which he went to in the hope of finding a method for defrosting the human body in the distant future.
His place was taken by brother Roy, who ran the Walt Disney Company until 1971. After his death, the company was headed by three people – Card Walker, Donn Tatum and Ron Miller, whom the Disney brothers had already begun to prepare for leadership. Walt Disney left to his successors many projects and ideas that he did not manage to realize himself.
The gradual implementation of Walt’s ideas allowed the company two more decades to maintain its leading place in the global entertainment industry, won during the life of the founder. And in recent years, the company has also grown seriously, having bought several companies that were famous for their unique individual style – Pixar, Marvel Comics and Lucasfilm. Millions of fans watched in horror, expecting Disney to ruin everything they bought, take humor, violence and true romance from their favorite works. In reality, everything turned out to be not so bad.
Disney’s total profit in 2014 amounted to $ 7.5 billion. Continue reading

Disneyland series

In 1954, the Disney Company began to produce television programs, becoming one of the pioneers of first black and white, and then color television in the United States. The first television hit from Disney was the Disneyland series, which, having changed its name several times, lasted 29 years on the screens of America, and it was shown exclusively in prime time. A year later, the debut of the famous Mickey Mouse Club show took place, in which many future stars of American show business took their first steps.

However, gradually the talent of Walt Disney became closely within the film and television business. A new field for activity was suggested to him by his father’s experience. Walking with his daughters, Walt often went to zoos, carnivals, and other entertainment events. While the children rode on the carousels, the father Continue reading

Beginning of the Mickey Mouse era

After the loss of Oswald, Disney had no choice but to come up with a new star for his cartoons. So the famous mouse Mickey Mouse was born (“Mortimer Mouse called him first, but my wife Lillian didn’t like this name, and she offered to name him Mickey. I couldn’t refuse her such a trifle – that’s how Mickey Mouse came into being, which brought worldwide fame to my company, ”Disney recalled.), suspiciously looking like his eldest brother rabbit. Disney himself and the main artist of his studio, Ab Iverks, took part in its creation.
However, the studio could not sell the first two cartoons with the participation of Mickey Mouse: they were dumb, and sound already came to the cinema. Cartoons were created quite quickly for the studios of that time, in addition, we must not forget that the Disney studio was partly artisanal. As soon as sound cinema appeared in 1927, Walt immediately adopted the experience of his fellow cinematographers and began voicing cartoons. The third film of the series (already with sound) was released on November 18, 1928, and this day marked the beginning of the Continue reading
