  • Walt Disney is one of the most iconic Americans of the last century. His movies have been enjoyed by children and adults for generations; his theme parks are visited by tens of millions of people every year; and his beloved characters connect with audiences over and over again. Disney is a brand known throughout the world, but the man who created the brand is less familiar.

    American Experience: Walt Disney offers an unprecedented look at the life and legacy of this iconic figure. The two-part documentary features interviews with artists who worked at the studio, as well as authors and academics who have studied Disney.

    The creative genius behind feel-good underdog stories considered himself an underdog as well. In addition to his passion for art and storytelling, Walt also wanted to ensure that his legacy would remain—and it certainly has.

    PART 2 Thursday, January 14 at 8 p.m.Walt continues to struggle with union organizers and testifies before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947, calling the strikers “communists.”

    Cinderella premieres in 1950 and is a box-office hit. Walt has already turned his attention to his next big project: Disneyland, a living movie and three-dimensional make-believe world where people can experience adventure. Disneyland opens in 1955. There are 1 million visitors in the first 10 weeks and the world’s first theme park becomes a must-see attraction. Mary Poppins, based on one of Walt’s children’s favorite books, premieres in 1964 and is yet another box-office hit for the Disney studio. The film is nominated for 13 Oscars, including Best Picture.In 1965, Walt begins planning the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, also known as EPCOT. Unfortunately, he does not live to see this plan come to fruition. Walt passes away from lung cancer on December 14, 1966.
