This documentary features original footage and interviews with various Disney legends and historians along with valuable archival material that are the property of The Walt Disney Company.
The name Walt Disney means different things to different people. For some it’s about princesses and fairytales while others see it as a multimillion-dollar media conglomerate. The name also invokes deep feelings of positivity, progress, and the enduring belief that tomorrow can always be better than today.
In the decades following his death, many stories have been written about his life and his legacy. Sadly, not all the publications have been true or positive.
Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow takes a close look at the various technologies that Walt Disney developed over the course of his life since it’s no secret that Disney loved inventors and gadgets. But the film also takes a look at the man himself.
At a time when women, Jews, and African Americans were considered as second-class citizens, Walt hired people of all races and religions to work in his company in varying prestigious positions. Those who worked for him remember that he talked directly with anybody who was doing anything. There were no layers of organization in his eyes. He cut through all of the levels, and made each employee feel that his or her contribution was valuable. Walt took the time to get to know what his employees were like and what they were interested in.
