One special song took the world by storm…
The runaway hit “Let It Go” gives voice to Elsa’s profound transformation. During the “Let It Go” number, Elsa transitions from buttoned up perfectionist to a person who gives herself permission to be who she is.
A Live-Action Treasure
The adventure movie that launched a thousand movies, Treasure Island got Walt’s all-live-action career off to a swashbuckling start. The film was a hit—so much so that Disney set sail with three more swashbucklers filmed in England, including The Story of Robin Hood and His Merrie Men (1952).
Peter Pan was one of Walt Disney’s favorite stories, but when he finally gained the rights to make the movie, he had a hard time deciding exactly how Peter should be portrayed, both in terms of appearance and character. Walt eventually settled on a merry—but mischievous—individual who could fly without wings.
The Master’s Final Film Triumph
Walt had considered Rudyard Kipling’s famous collection of stories, with its many colorful animal personalities, as an ideal subject for Disney animation since the mid-1930s. He finally bought the screen rights in 1962.
The Mouse who Started it all
This mini superstar with the outsized ears has caused quite a stir in sight and sounds ever since he was first unveiled in 1928.
With astounding special effects overflowing from a bottomless carpetbag of movie magic, Mary Poppins (1964) is an extravagant musical fantasy about the proper British nanny who can do anything.
Dead Man’s Chest
In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006), Captain Jack Sparrow finds himself once again in a life-or-death scenario, with the ruler of the ocean depths, Davy Jones in the mix.
When it came to the 2015 live-action adaptation, three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell would play Fairy Godmother in real life by creating a ball gown so beautiful, that it would seem almost to have been made by magic.
Disney collectors have sought out Disney pins since the 1930s, but it was in 1999 that Disney Pin trading became a phenomenon, as Disney parks began a new tradition of official pin trading with the kickoff of the Millennium Celebration at Walt Disney World Resort.
