The Art of Walt Disney : From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms
"The Art of Walt Disney is one of Abrams' enduring classics.

Based on hundreds of interviews with Disney staff members past and present, the text is illustrated with more than 800 illustrations ranging from concept art to film stills to views of the theme-park attractions. This revised and expanded edition covers all of the major projects since the 1995 edition, including the films "Lilo & Stitch, "Brother Bear, and "Home on the Range, as well as Disney's collaborations with Pixar: "Toy Story I and "II; "Monsters, Inc. ; "Finding Nemo (the highest-grossing animated film in history); and "The Incredibles, due for release this year. The live-action films and Broadway productions are also covered, as well as the latest theme-park developments, including brand-new parks such as Tokyo DisneySea and Hong Kong Disneyland.show more
