Celebrating a Century of Magic:
Disney's 100 Years
A century ago, in a magical corner of the world, an empire of the imagination was born that would transform the history of entertainment forever.
On October 16, 1923, Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney founded the company that would take their name to the pinnacle of the entertainment industry: Disney.
Now, in the year 2023, we are celebrating a full century of magic, creativity and unforgettable moments.
We invite you to read today's post, in which we review a bit of the history of this mythical company.
A Century of Magic in Every Frame
Over 100 years, Disney has given us countless endearing characters, heartwarming stories and magical worlds that have touched the hearts of generations.
From the release of Mickey Mouse's first animated short, "Steamboat Willie," in 1928, to more recent hits such as "Frozen," "Moana" and "Soul," the company has remained committed to bringing joy and fun into the lives of people of all ages.
Innovation in Film and Technology
Disney has not only been a leader in storytelling and animation, but has also driven technology and innovation in the world of film.
The first Technicolor animated film, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937), marked a milestone in film history.
Since then, Disney has continued to innovate with the introduction of revolutionary visual effects and pioneering films in computer animation, such as "Toy Story" (1995), produced in collaboration with Pixar.

A Legacy of Diversity and Inclusion
Throughout its history, Disney has embraced diversity and promoted inclusion in its stories and workforce.
Characters such as Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Elsa and Moana have empowered audiences around the world and highlighted the importance of representation in entertainment.
