Title: Walt Disney: Animation's Magic Kingdom

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Grant Watson


When animation producer Walt Disney announced he was making a feature-length animated film, he was the laughing stock of Hollywood. Derisively called "Disney's Folly", Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs unexpectedly captured the public imagination and launched a legacy and an animation brand that continues to this day.

It's 70 years - and 48 feature films - later. Liked, loved, loathed: no company has had a more profound effect on movie animation worldwide. In one celebratory panel, we track the history, development, effect and legacy of Walt Disney feature animation.
