Walt Disney Facts:

Walter and his sibling Roy helped to establish Walt Disney Productions, which ended up noticeably extraordinary compared to other known film generation organizations on the planet. Disney was an inventive illustrator and made the toon character Mickey Mouse.

Disney used to draw, paint and sell pictures to neighbors and family friends in his childhood.

Disney went to McKinley High School in Chicago, where he took drawing and photography classes and was a contributing sketch artist for the school paper. Around evening time, he took courses at the Chicago Art Institute.

In 1934, Disney had turned out to be disappointed with creating equation based toon shorts, and started a four-year generation of a full-length cartoon, Snow White, and the Seven Dwarfs, in light of the fable.

Disney had been a substantial smoker since World War I. In November 1966, he was determined to have lung growth and was treated with cobalt therapy. He kicked the bucket of circulatory crumple caused by lung malignancy.


Walt Disney Quotes:

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

“All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me… You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”

“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”

“I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.”

“Animation offers a medium of storytelling and visual entertainment which can bring pleasure and information to people of all ages everywhere in the world.”
