It was on December 5, 1901, when Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago. With an early interest in art, he took classes as a boy and took the job of a commercial illustrator at the age of 18.

On October 16, 1923 Walter and his brother Roy, signed an agreement to produce an animated film series called the “Alice Comedies” and decided to call their company Disney Brothers Studio. Later in 1926, it was changed to Walt Disney Studio.

Between 1928 and 1966, when Walt Disney died at the age of 65, Disney created masterpieces in the form of Mickey Mouse in “Steamboat Willie,” “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Cinderella,” and “Mary Poppins.”

From 1971 the empire was extended to Orlando, Tokyo, Paris, and California which has only extended through the years.

Recently, the animation giant has come up with new characters such as Elsa and Anna from “Frozen,” Miguel from “Coco,” Mirabel Madrigal from “Encanto” and hopefully many more to come.
