Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The film accurately depicts Walt as a heavy smoker. Walt Disney died of lung cancer in 1966. See more »
Goofs Walt's Laugh O Gram studio was located in Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City is mentioned several times in the film, however Walt (actor Thomas Ian Nicholas) and other characters refer to Kansas several times later in the film. Wrong state. See more »
Movie Connections Features Newman Laugh-O-Grams (1921). See more »
Soundtracks Just A Wish See more »
Crazy Credits In the opening credits, we are told that the story is "based on the book by Timothy Susanin, forward by Diane Disney Miller." It's supposed to be "foreword," not "forward." This error is one of the most common in English and does not speak highly of the technical team's literacy level. See more »
Quotes Elias Disney: Let me tell you something about life... always finish what you start, and anything worth doing is worth doing well.
