One evening, Walt Disney gathered his animators and studio staff together and told them of his newest idea: a feature-length, story-driven animated film called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
He was almost named Mortimer Mouse. How did Walt Disney and his team dream up the new animated star?
Walt Disney's Bambi was released in August of 1942 and stood out as the most ambitious feature-length film in the history of the studio.
In its first year, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs grossed $8 million.
