The story of Walt Disney and the company he built based entirely on the creations of his extraordinary imagination. It covers Walt's early career, including Mickey Mouse's 1928 debut in "Steamboat Willie", all of the animated feature films from "Snow White" to "Fantasia 2000", live action films, and the theme parks such as Disneyland. The author was granted access to archives and people, interviewing hundreds of Disney staff members past and present, from chairman Michael Eisner, to the animators, to the imagineers who design the theme parks. Illustrations include concept art, background paintings, film stills and views of theme park attractions, all selected in consultation with the artists and animators themselves. This book has been revised and updated to include all major projects since the last edition, including "Toy Story 2", "Tarzan" and "Fantasia 2000".
