Everything I Know I Learned from Disney Animated Feature Films

By Heidi

Lucky for me (and YOU), I have a LARGE stack of books here from my friends at Theme Park Press to read and share! It’s always so hard to pick which ones to read first, so I just randomly stacked them up and plan to grab from the top of the pile. So, you never know what you might be reading about! First up, is this new book by Disney Historian, Jim Korkis . . .

About the Book
Advice for Living Happily Ever After

From Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) through Big Hero 6 (2014), Jim Korkis takes you behind the scenes of 54 Disney animated films. Nearly eight decades of Disney, in a book not just packed with trivia, but with life lessons served up by Disney characters, loved and loathed alike.

Beginning with the names not chosen for the Seven Dwarfs in Snow White and why Walt wouldn’t let Pinocchio kill Jiminy Cricket, through the cameo appearance of Rapunzel inFrozen and the importance of a full diaper in Big Hero 6, Korkis shares hundreds of stories about Disney animated films, and then the Disney characters themselves offer their wise, witty, sometimes wonky advice.
