Trivia

Due to a shoestring budget, the child actors who portrayed the Disney siblings were not permitted to rehearse their scenes prior to shooting. Sadly, their scenes each result in a series of line readings, with no acting. See more »

It goes from awkwardly bad, to awkwardly worse
16 February 2018 | by daytonn-40101See all my reviews

30 seconds into the film, you knew it was going to be bad. The introduction felt like a YouTube trailer for a high school film project. I decided I would watch the film on fast forward to save some time... Every 30 seconds I stopped to watch a few seconds, you could pick up the details of a Christian film. I think a worship team at a Church got together and decided to act? As I saw the acting, it reminded me of how bad I did acting. It's really not as easy as it looks. It felt sort of like Napoleon Dynamite doing a Christmas play about Walt Disney.

Overall, I'm not sure how accurate the information is, but it seems to be a lot about Walt Disney as a child and teenager (which was pretty boring). An hour into the 90 min film, Walt shows his first cartoon to a theater producer. The producer buys his cartoon for $0.30 a foot (I was hoping this was an inappropriate innuendo, but it wasn't). From here Walt starts making cartoons. 5 mins later Walt is talking to a young girl and asks her "Do you want to see my pet mouse!" The girl smiles and Walt walks into the background with the scene fading. (I thought this was a family film!)

At this point, I was so confused, but at 1:10 the narrator confirms that Walt becomes desperate for money and will do anything to make a buck... he begins taking baby pictures and pet pictures... A tad bit of odd humor regarding the animators keeping one another happy, but that pleasure didn't pay the bills. The film goes on with Walt running out of money, his family leaving and a mouse feeding off scraps from Walts art table... From her the movie ends abruptly.
