Abstract:

"The Art of Walt Disney tells the story of Walt Disney and the company he built based on the creations of his extraordinary imagination, from Mickey Mouse to feature films to theme parks and Broadway. Based on numerous interviews with Disney staff members past and present, the text is profusely illustrated with more than eight hundred illustrations ranging from concept and background art to film stills - from Mickey's 1928 debut in Steamboat Willie to the latest from Disney/Pixar, The Incredibles - to views of theme-park attractions and Broadway stage productions." "Christopher Finch has revised and expanded this volume extensively, adding three new chapters, to cover all the major Disney projects since the 1995 edition." "This new edition of The Art of Walt Disney once again tells the story of Disney's rise from humble beginnings to international renown, but this time we're brought into the twenty-first century."--Jacket.
