Overview

A classic that has sold more than 500,000 copies since it was first published in 1973, The Art of Walt Disney has never been revised or updated until now. Seven completely new chapters (fully half the text and illustrations in the book) carry the story forward, chronicling the dramatic resurgence of the company under new management, which has seen the release of the three most successful animated films ever made - Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King. This new edition also covers live-action movie production and the growth of the Disney theme parks, with the addition of EPCOT Center, Disney-MGM Studios, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris. To prepare this new edition, author Christopher Finch was given unprecedented access to Disney, interviewing scores of individuals, from chairman Michael Eisner and other senior executives to animators and Imagineers, as the artists who design the theme parks are called. The book is profusely illustrated, including concept art, background paintings, and stills from every important animation project, beginning with Mickey's 1928 debut in Steamboat Willie and including works in progress, such as the feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame; production shots and stills from live-action movies; and an enormous variety of views of the theme parks around the world, with close-ups of innovative rides and attractions. Art for the book was carefully selected in consultation with the artists and animators themselves.

The first and only major updating and revision of a classic that has sold more than 500,000 copies since its first publication in 1973, this elaborately illustrated volume tells the remarkable story of Walt Disney, and chronicles the dramatic resurgence of the company he founded as it grew under new management, up to the release of The Lion King. 666 illustrations, 350 in color.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Art of Walt Disney was first published in 1973. This major revision (some 50 percent of the text is new, with 200 new illustrations) carries the Disney story up to such current feature films as Pocahontas and even stories in production like The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Finch (The Art of the Lion King, Hyperion, 1994) also continues his exploration of Disney's nonanimated enterprises: the live-action films, television productions, and Disney theme parks in the United States, Japan, and France. As one would expect, excellent full-color illustrations abound, although the type size has been reduced in comparison with the first edition, presumably for reasons of economy. Solomon (The History of Animation, LJ 12/95) takes a vertical approach to the Disney phenomenon, concentrating on the fascinating world of Disney-animated features that were never released for a variety of reasons. In doing so he draws on the resources of the studio's Animation Research Library, where he was able to take advantage of countless detailed drawings and notes preserved even for productions that never came to fruitiona common practice at Disney. In this volume the Disney connoisseur will learn about Disney projects like Chanticleer and Reynard, as well as a curious collaborative venture undertaken by Disney and Salvador Dali. Disney propaganda, training, and entertainment films made during World War II are detailed in one of the most fascinating chapters. Few Disney fans would associate the animation giant with such films as Four Methods of Flush Riveting or Prostitution and the War. As contributions to the history of animation, both volumes are essential for academic and American studies collections. Public libraries with limited budgets may opt for Finch's more broadly appealing book.Janice Zlendich, California State Univ. Lib., Fullerton

    A must have for Disney admirers and those who are not!!

    For people who admire Disney's work and for those who don't this is a great book. Walt's work can not fit in any book, but this one managed to explain and decribe his work in a best possible way. You won't find many information on Walt's personal life, but the book is called The ART of Walt Disney. Lots of photos of original drawings, cels, backgrounds are included, which makes the text you read easy to understand and see it in reality. A must have for anyone who cares about culture, because Disney has changed the culture and this book explains it accurately. After reading this book, Disney admirers will just love his art more and those who are not, will become.

    Terrific book on the Art of Disney

    This book is packed with photographs, drawings and artwork from Walt Disney's life and from the Walt Disney Company. In addition to the all the images, there is a lot of good information about Walt Disney and the Disney Company in the text. Even the cover of this book is well done and attractive. Anyone could feel proud to have this book sitting on his or her coffee table. The book was well researched and contains a lot of historical information about Walt Disney and the Disney Company. In terms of information on Walt, it is not as complete as some of the biographies of Disney that I read. However, it is a very good overview of Disney's life and a good chronology of the Disney Company. I appreciated the way that the artwork was coordinated with the text and well explained. There is artwork and photographs from Disney¿s very early days all the way through to the 1990s. The author did not seem to miss anything in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the art of Walt Disney and the Disney Company and would like to know both a little better.
