by: Kristen Heng
The reason I chose Walt Disney as my famous animator is beacause he makes really interesting films and animations. Even though he is gone the Disney company is still thriving and releasing amazing movies and animation. He is like an animation pioneer because he is known throughout the world and his animations are highly popular. Almost everyone knows him and his creations.
Introduction: Why I Chose the Animator and Why He Is Considered an Animation Pioneer
Walt Disney was born on December 15, 1901 and as he grew up he developed an interest in art. In 1918, he tried to enlist in the military and when he was declined because he was underage, he joined the Red Cross and helped as a medical assistant. Walt had started to make characters and his first one was called Oswasld the Lucky Rabbit. Walt married his beloved wife, Lilly or Lillian and shortly after their wedding, Walt made the well-known mouse that we all love, Mickey Mouse in 1928. Then on December 21, 1937, after he released The Old Mill, Disney created Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, which was the first full length animated film. Then over the course of five years, Disney created Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, and Pinnocchio.
