Q: On the internet, I found that Walt Disney purchased rights to Sir John Tenniel's illustrations of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland while working on the movie before work on Snow White began. A Walt Disney biography states that he purchased the rights after the success of Snow White. Which one is true?
A: According to Brian Sibley, who did research for a 1986 edition of Lewis Carroll’s book, Disney purchased the rights to the Tenniel drawings in 1931.
