Imagine if one sketchbook had been passed down through the decades from one Disney artist to the next, with each one making a contribution before leaving it in the talented hands of another. That idea was the inspiration for The Art of Disney's Dragons. The drawings contained within this volume represent the entire range of dragon-themed development art from animators, live-action studio artists, and Imagineers. Inside find playful pencil studies of Mushu; color concepts on Figment (who was green before he became purple!); bold pencil layouts on Maleficent, and the latest character explorations of Elliot from the new Spring/Summer 2016 live-action film Pete's Dragon. Tom Bancroft, often recognized in Disney circles as being lead animator on Mushu the dragon in Mulan, writes the book's introductory essay.

This series of Pictorial books enables readers worldwide to share images selected from the author's collections of extremely rare Disney-related memorabilia that is generally shown only at formal philatelic exhibitions. Walt Disney's humble little character, Mickey Mouse, was first presented to motion picture theater audiences in 1928-just one year prior to the infamous Wall Street stock market crash that resulted in what is referred to as The Great Depression, which continued until 1941 and was followed by World War Two which lasted until 1945. For the better part of two decades, for countless millions of families, there were few moments of joy and little means of escape from the world's dismal, disheartening economic conditions. Two items not directly related to either Depression or World War came together to provide moments of relief and escape from the grim news of the day. One was the creation of short animated cartoons and another was the development of motion pictures with synchronized sound. Walt Disney and his brilliant creative team became pioneers in these entertainment advances, and their work resulted in the introduction of a small mouse who would quickly become the world's most beloved motion picture star. Even Walt was caught unprepared for the global popularity of Mickey Mouse. Printed items featuring Mickey's likeness were quickly churned out in many countries, much of which was crude to the point of vulgarity. Some examples of these images have survived to become part of Ed Bergen's collection, along with examples of Disney's own successful marketing activities which are presented in this Pictorial series-postcards, greeting cards, books and magazines, toys, wristwatches and other novelties, and ultimately even feature films. Ed Bergen's delightful collection of unusual and seldom seen memorabilia begins with Mickey's motion picture introduction and his immediate rise to unparalleled entertainment fame. It is an insightful glimpse of the early beginnings of Mickey Mouse, who would become America's most welcome ambassador to the entire world.

Its success has since spun into a smash Broadway musical adaptation, intricately detailed environments at Walt Disney World, and soon a live-action movie musical directed by Bill Condon. This authoritative book features interviews with artists, producers, directors, writers, actors, and more from the various beloved installments-making it a treasure trove of delights for fans of the tale as old as time.

Disney decided to give it new life. The film went on to be nominated for an Academy Award in 2004 . This volume showcases all 150 pieces of art created by Dali and Hench. Also, the sole piece of animation art that was filmed in 1946 is showcased in a series of images explaining how it was digitally cut apart, restored and then reassembled for the 2003 completed film version.

With its kind heroine who receives her just reward-and a dashing prince-with the help of her Fairy Godmother, "Cinderella" is one the most beloved fairy tales throughout the world. Although the most popular versions appeared in Charles Perrault's Histoires ou contes du temps pass ("Stories or Fables of Times Past") (1697) and the Grimms' "Fairy Tales" (1812), the story can be traced back to the story of Rhodopis, a Greek slave girl who marries the pharoah of Egypt, which Strabo recorded in the first century B.C.E. In the late nineteenth century, British follklorist Marian Roalfe Cox catalogued 345 variations of the story. For more than two thousand years, children and adults have read and watched as Cinderella endured cruel mistreatment without complaining-and met her prince before the stroke of midnight. A Wish Your Heart Makes will trace the history of the fairy tale, emphasizing its strong ties to Walt Disney and his studio. Major artists who illustrated the story of Cinderella range from Aubrey Beardsley, Edward Burne-Jones, and Walter Crane, to Gustave Dor , Edmund Dulac, John B. Gruelle, and Arthur Rackham. The story has been adapted to the stage many times, including the operas La Cenerentola by Giacomo Rossini and Cendrillon by Jules Massenet, the ballet by Sergei Prokofiev, and musical adaptations by Rogers and Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim. There have been scores of Cinderella films, beginning with a black and white short in 1907. But the most celebrated is Walt Disney's, one of his most beloved fairy tales-and the film that saved his studio, which had languished in the doldrums after the end of World War II. Years later, when a lunch guest asked Disney what his favorite piece of animation done at his studio, he replied, "I think it would be when Cinderella got her ball gown." The book will conclude with the making of the 2015 live-action film Cinderella directed by Kenneth Branagh, including interviews with Branagh, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Anthony Caron-Delion, Patrick Doyle, Dante Ferretti, Derek Jacobi, Lilly James, Aline Brosh McKenna, and Chris Weitz.

In this glossy volume, featuring never-before-seen photos, artwork, and detailed accounts, the process, techniques, and contributions of the women-and men-who defined the Walt Disney Studio's legendary Ink & Paint Department over the years are carefully explored, preserved, and shared for future generations.
