Go Inside Disney’s dream factory with The Walt Disney Studios: A Lot to Remember (Disney Editions) hardcover book, which is now available. This deluxe book features a heavily illustrated history of the Walt Disney film studio. Co-written by the director of the Walt Disney Archives Rebecca Cline and Steven B. CLark, founder of D:23 the Official Disney Fan Club.
The Walt Disney Studios: A Lot to Remember brings readers back to 19223, when two enterprising brothers named Walt and Roy Disney decided to go into the movie business together, establishing the Disney Brothers Studio in Los Angeles, CA. Since then, Walt Disney Studios has released hundreds of groundbreaking and entertaining shorts as well as full-length feature films in both animation and live-action garnering countless awards, accolades, and aficionados the world over. Walt was never a man to rest on his laurels, the Disney Studio continues to surpass itself, innovating new technology, pioneering new techniques, and gleaning higher box-office returns with every passing decade.
Abundantly illustrated with behind-the-scenes photographs and artwork from the studios ninety-plus years of productions, The Walt Disney Studios: A Lot to Remember celebrates Walt Disney’s dream factory, which has always been and continues to be the heard of the Walt DIsney Company. From Pinocchio and Fantasia, World War II propaganda films to the Disneyland TV show, Bedknobs and Broomsticks to Pirates of the Caribbean, some of the company’s most monumental and iconic creations have been brought to life at the Studio. So park your car in the Zorro lot, take a stroll down MIckey Avenue, and get ready for an insider tour …this is the Walt Disney Studios like it’s never been seen before.
When I opened the box containing this breathtaking book, I was very impressed. The book is quite large, and the pages are just beautifully bound. I was fascinated by the amount of history is tucked within these pages. This isn’t just a collection of internet tales, myth or legends, but more of an in depth journey back in time. What intrigued me most, was so many photographs I had never even seen before! Pictures of character models and inspirations, like the live model for Cruella DeVil!
Even though I’ve had the book all morning, I still find something new and interesting every time I flip through the pages. A behind the scenes peek at Bedknobs and Broomsticks brought a few tears to my eyes as I relived the nostalgia of one of my favorite childhood movies. Seeing what went in to creating the magic of my beloved movie gave me an even deeper appreciation for it. “Bobbing along…” is now echoing softly in my mind.
This book can’t even be called a book, but rather a treasure. It is truly a collector’s item any Disney lover should read and admire. From how the Disney brothers got started, to all of their fantastic feats, and the magic they created all within beautiful illustrations and photographs. My final smirk came when I realized the play on words the title of the book held. Not only is it a lot of Disney history to remember, but it is also a studio lot worth remembering as well.
