Adventure Thru the Walt Disney Archives – D23 Gold Member World Premiere!

This event is SOLD OUT

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Walt Disney Archives, and to celebrate the occasion, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club will premiere the new documentary Adventure Thru the Walt Disney Archives. The film, hosted by legendary producer Don Hahn (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Maleficent), will premiere on exclusively for D23 Gold Members on June 27.

Adventure Thru the Walt Disney Archives gives viewers a look into rarely seen parts of the extensive Disney Archives, which were founded by Disney Legend Dave Smith on June 22, 1970. The film looks at beloved parts of Disney, including its theme parks and Studio lot, through an engaging, historical lens, as Hahn speaks with Walt Disney Archives director Becky Cline and other members of the Archives team. Each stop on the adventure offers a look at some of the iconic treasures that have played a role in shaping The Walt Disney Company. The film, directed by John Gleim, features new interviews with Disney Executive Chairman Bob Iger, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Pixar’s Pete Docter, film historian Leonard Maltin, and many more.

“Making this film was my Disney ‘fanboy’ dream come true,” says Hahn. “The Walt Disney Archives is packed with hidden treasures, and I had incredible access to them all.”
