Essay title: Walt Disney

After the success of Snow White, Walt built a new studio in Burbank and began working on Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi. These films were not as commercially successful as Snow White, but, over the years, have become timeless family classics. What distinguished Walt’s cartoons from their predecessors, was his ability to breath life into his characters and give them distinct personalities.
