Win Your Copy of Walt Before Mickey

"Walt Before Mickey" will be released by Vision Films across North America on DVD and Digital on Walt Disney's birthday, December 5th. It is a perfect film for the holidays, taking viewers on a journey through the early years of Walt Disney's career. We really enjoyed watching this inspiring, heartwarming movie, as it tells the story of Walt Disney’s early years and his career leading up to his visionary creation of Mickey Mouse.
The movie is based on the book by Timothy S Susanin. Walt before Mickey is from director Khoa Le and writers/producers Arthur L Bernstein and Armando Gutierrez.  

Walt before Mickey takes viewers on a journey through the passion, ambition, and dreams of a man who would go on to capture millions of hearts across the world, and inspire dreams for generations to come. From Disney's early childhood in Marceline, Missouri the story begins with his obsessive ambition to be an artist. Pursuing his goal as a young adult he opens his first business, the animation company Laugh O Gram Studios in Kansas City. He brings together his Dream Team of friends and talented artists who support him through his ever-growing struggles in a burgeoning industry. As the first employer to give women an opportunity in the animation world, his fortitude and sense of decency shine through even his darkest hours. Not the best money manager, Disney faces mounting bills, bill collectors, process servers and ultimately his fear of failure all the while remembering the words spoken to him as a young boy by his father, "Always finish what you started and anything worth doing is worth doing well!"

We enjoyed watching and learning from the film, as it details Disney's struggle to succeed after repeated failures and obstacles, his close relationship with his brother, finding his one true love and ultimately his determination to pursue his dream. We see how he realizes that "dreams don’t come true without a lot of hope and failure" and how this determination leads him to create the character Mickey Mouse, putting him on the map and into the history books.

  2. I live in BC and have never heard of this movie before but would love to see it! I am a big Disney fan, and love to see/read all the stories about the man who created it all - this one sounds really interesting, and unlike anything I've read or seen before on his background.
