Adventure Thru the Walt Disney Archives explores beloved parts of Disney—including its theme parks and Studio lot—through an engaging, historical lens, as legendary producer and host Don Hahn (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Maleficent) 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.
