As well as the official name of the service Disney+ . However Iger also shared news of a docu-series centered on Walt Disney Imagineering.
Iger stated that the series will include “stories we’ve never really told before and images we have never shared.” This would give viewers a rare look at the inner workings of the Disney Company.
In addition Iger added that this was one of several docu-series being developed for Disney+. Recently it was announced that a docu-series based on the book Ink & Paint by Mindy Johnson.
Filmed in conjunction with Sertner productions, “It tells the story of animation at Disney, from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Coco and Moana, through the prism of an unsung workforce of trailblazing women who helped create some of the greatest animated movies of all time.”
The most exciting description of the series called the project, “a Hidden Figures look at a number of women who made many of the Disney animated classics possible with little or no recognition for their work.”
The series’ title refers to the original method of making animation which involved individual cels, which first were inked, putting on black ink to do the outlines,before they were sent to a group of painters to do the coloring.
Both the Imagineering and Ink & Paint docu-series are set to debut on Disney+ next fall.
