DVD Release Celebration
TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURES, 1948-1960, Walt Disney, approx. 90 min. The TRUE-LIFE ADVENTURES -- a series of 13 groundbreaking film shorts and short features released between 1948 - 1960 that captured the wonder of animals and nature and won eight Academy Awards® -- epitomize the magic of Walt Disney. In classics such as “Seal Island,” “The Living Desert,” “The Vanishing Prairie” and “White Wilderness,” Walt blended his unique sense of innovation with creativity and technology to put together films that brought fascinating insights into the world of wild animals as well as attention to the importance of conserving our outdoor heritage. The acclaimed series makes its long-awaited DVD debut from Walt Disney Home Entertainment on December 5. This program will consist of highlights from some of the most famous and popular entries. “Some of my first and fondest production experiences were on these wonderful films, so they’re very close to my heart…the movies remain as relevant and entertaining today, a whole new generation will be able to discover them… Like the specialists at Disney’s Animal Kingdom who are carrying on that tradition, Walt cared deeply about wildlife and its conservation. And, equally important, he made films that were solid entertainment.”- Roy Disney. Discussion following the screening with Roy Disney and a panel of some of the filmmakers (TBA).
