The Imagineering Story


In case it’s not already obvious, one thing Disney has always done well is mine its own properties for bonus entertainment value. Take this series, for example. Leslie Iwerks (granddaughter of legendary Disney animator Ub Iwerks) takes fans on a fascinating journey through the history of Walt Disney Imagineering, where the ideas and projects that eventually became Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and the subsequent Disney parks were born. From Walt’s initial concept for a well-maintained, family friendly amusement park to the opening of the latest, cutting-edge Disney resort in Shanghai, to the construction of a brand new Star Wars-themed land, each episode goes in depth with key creatives behind the scenes and doesn’t shy away from the struggles they faced bringing attractions to life and keeping the parks running smoothly. If you missed going to theme parks in 2020, well, this is no substitute, but it’s almost as good.
