Walt Before Mickey?

Postby ibrmacf » December 18th, 2013, 8:32 pm

Anybody know anything about this:

Apparently, a film is being made based on the book, "Walt Before Mickey" and it doesn't seem to be a documentary, but rather an actual dramatic film. This film seems to be about Walt's early career. I can just feel the controversies arising on whom they'll cast to play Walt Disney for this film...if this is not a hoax.

Um...a little odd that they list a runtime when the movie hasn't shot a frame yet!

So this is a real film! Really interested. Reminds me of a short film posted on Cartoon Brew years ago about a young Walt Disney. Would be very interesting to compare this to Saving Mr. Banks, that's for sure. :)

This is the same film, Vi.

There were two of them, both promoted on the Brew around 18 months ago. Each looked fairly good, but both also limited by the nature of their low budgets.

They both seem to have been fully shot...maybe this one is only being finished up and shopped around now?

No way! That's awesome. I remember really liking what I saw. :)

One word: Wow! :)

Saving Mr. Banks was great, but this looks to be even better!

This is again the same film, Vi...that trailer, and the one for the other similar film, have been out for months!
