The Disney LegacyAs the presentation began, filmmakers Byron Howard, Clark Spenser, and Rich Moore shared with us the imagination behind the Disney legacy, and why Disney continues to make some of the most unforgettable films.
Some of the greatest films ever made were made by Walt Disney and the Disney artists. Contemporary and ground breaking films that are inspired by their long legacy of innovation and great story telling. Ten years ago John Lasseter and Bob Iger joined Disney, and one of the first things they did was put filmmaking back in the hands of filmmakers, not in the hands of executives. What they started was something called the story trust. It's a mix of veterans and young talent. Directors, writers, and story artists who challenge each other every day to push Disney films to a new level of excellence.With the story trust came the four ingredients to every Disney film made.
- First, Disney strives to tell timeless stories for today's audiences.
- Second, Disney makes movies to be entertaining for people of all ages around the world.
- Third, Disney films must contain a combination of both great humor and deep emotion.
- Fourth, Disney films must live up to the standard of Walt Disney. After all, his name is on each and every one of these movies.
