The Walt Disney Company: From Mickey Mouse to The Lion King
Founded October 16th, 1923, The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest companies in the world. But this huge conglomerate had humble beginnings: it launched as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio by Walt and Roy Disney, who began their cartoon efforts with a series of films called "Alice Comedies." Soon after, the Disneys lost the rights to one of their popular cartoon characters, and invented Mickey Mouse as its replacement. Since then, Disney has shaped the animation industry, and has made some of the most beloved films of all time, including "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Sleeping Beauty," "Mary Poppins," "The Little Mermaid," and "The Lion King" to name just a few.
