“What is the largest item in the Walt Disney Archives?” | Ask the Archives Episode 4

By the D23 Team

The Walt Disney Archives is full of fascinating props, costumes, ephemera, and more—including massive items used in the making of movies. If you visited the “Walt Disney Archives Presents––A Pirate’s Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels and Really Bad Eggs” exhibit at the 2017 D23 Expo, you probably admired the 23-feet-tall “bigature” (the opposite of a miniature) model of The Black Pearl, which was the largest item in the Walt Disney Archives—until recently, when something from the Fox Archives landed in their collection! Watch the video to discover what out-of-this-world prop from Prometheus now holds the record for largest item in the Walt Disney Archives.
