The friend of every 90s kid, the Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck. Leading with these, they founded many more branches as the company grew. These included Marvel Entertainment, Lucasfilm, ABC, Pixar Animation Studios, and ESPN to name a few.
It won its first Academy Award for Best Cartoon and the lead was followed with many successes in the fictional category. The company also holds the rights of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves which was the then highest-grossing film of its time.
Walt and his vision for the company proved right in today’s time with the empire expanding through every nook and corner of the globe. He was an animator, writer, voice actor, and film producer all at once. Some of the inspiring quotes he famously said-
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
