Walt Before Mickey tells the story of a young Walt Disney trying to pursue his dreams in animation. The film follows the highs and lows of his early career before he becomes the entrepreneur that we know him as today.
Some parts a little slow, and I didn’t particularly care for the love story element, but overall it isn’t a bad movie. I liked that it started with a bit about his childhood and the voice-over helped to put things in context.
Although it’s based on the true story, I’m not sure how accurate it is, so its worth taking it with a pinch of salt, but it was still interesting to learn about Walt Disney without the Disney company and how things came to be.
It made me smile, and got me excited for my holiday to Florida in a few months, what else could you ask for?
