If you know me you may remember that I’m quite interested in the history of Walt Disney. His life story, from newspaper boy to the man who created Disneyland, is fascinating to me.
As a British man who grew up, like most other Brits, believing that we probably won’t amount to anything special, I often find myself wondering if the Disney phenomenon could only have ever come out of America.
I studied animation at university, and while I enjoyed the practical side of the studies, I was always more interested in the history of animation. A large chunk of that is thanks to Disney, and most of that is on display at the exhibition.
There you can see the early sketches for characters, such as Mickey and Donald, pose boards, zoetropes and much more. If you’re a fan of Disney, you’ll love it. If you’re interested in the moving image, you’ll enjoy it, too.
It’s all put together impressively well, and has just enough of that Disneyland feel to make you forget you’re walking through the upper floor of an art museum.
There’s a gift shop on the ground floor which has various I-want-it-but-don’t-need-it Disney goods. We decided to get a few postcards.
The exhibition runs until the 30th of September. I recommend going, it really is worth it. The only trouble is, you may come out wondering how much a trip to Disneyland is.
