The first of two documentaries exploring the life, career and legacy of Walt Disney, making use of archive footage alongside interviews with his friends, colleagues and relatives to present a portrait of a ruthlessly driven animator and entrepreneur whose single-minded ambition allowed him to create a string of cartoon masterpieces that would define an entire industry. This opening instalment charts Disney's early days, from the creation of Mickey Mouse through to the triumph of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, his first full-length animated feature film.
