What can we say about Disney? Well, they pretty much run the world now, not bad for what started out as a small studio run by Walt Disney and his brother, Roy. Now the franchise spans theme parks across the globe, multi million dollar movies and the most famous mouse in the world.
Walt started out drawing cartoons, before illustrating for commercials at a young age. Mickey Mouse came to life in 1928 in a short cartoon. He grew in popularity and eventually became the face of Disney, with his image appearing in most Disney movies in some form.
In 1937, Disney released the first fairytale retelling - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The movie was massively over budget and if it was not a success it would have bankrupted the studio. Luckily, it was a hit.
Disney has won many awards over the years and the company has grown in power, now containing some of the biggest franchises in the world - Star Wars and Marvel. Where it goes from here is anyone's guess, but it looks set to go from strength to strength.
We all grew up on Disney movies and in turn we have shown them to our own kids. What was your favorite Disney Movie growing up?
