Walt Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois, North Tripp Avenue, in the Hermosa community area. His father is Elias Charles Disney, an Irish-Canadian, while his mother is Flora Call Disney, who was an English-German descent. As a result, he had a German, English, and Irish ancestry. Arundel Elias Disney was his great-grandfather who was the child of “Robert d'Isigny”, the Frenchman who had took a voyage to England. The clan anglicized the “d'Isigny” name into "Disney" and settled down in this English village now called as Norton Disney, in the south city of Lincoln.
In 1925, Disney employed Lillian (Lilly) Bounds, a young woman that will paint and ink celluloid, but a brief courtship, they got married on July 25, 1925. In 1928, Walt find out that Winkler and Charles Mintz, her husband, stole the rights of the characters from him. They also stole all his animators, apart for Ub Iwerks. On his way home, Walt started sketching on a portion of paper and the outcome of his doodles was a mouse now named as Mickey. With only Ub and Walt to animate them, Lillian Disney and Edna Disney, Roy's wife ink in those animation cells, and quickly, three Mickey Mouse were produced. Initially, the first two did not sell, so Walt supplemented some synchronized sound to their final one, “Steamboat Willie”, and it was rapidly picked up. Mickey’s voice was from Walt that became a great success.
In 1955, he opened in Southern California a theme park called as Disneyland. It was a location for kids and parents to take rides, explore, and bump with the usual animated characters in safe and clean surroundings. Again, it was another success. Walt was one of the primary producers of movies to venture into TV, with his series of Disneyland in 1954 that will endorse his theme park. To sum it all, Walt came up with a lavish musical dream Mary Poppins in 1964, which blend live-action with the animation. It is thought by lots of people to be his masterwork.
