In stock



The behind-the-scenes story of Walt Disney's Fun and Fancy Free, a 1947 "package feature" composed of two different stories, Bongo and Mickey and the Beanstalk. Both were originally planned as separate feature-length films in the early 1940s; both were shelved during the war and resumed production in 1946, then combined in a single colorful package with animation by some of the all-time great Disney animators. Here is the full story of the film, profusely illustrated with sketches, paintings, and photos, many never previously published.

The Making of Walt Disney's Fun and Fancy Free is the first volume in the Hyperion Historical Alliance Monograph SeriesFor more information about the Hyperion Historical Alliance publications, visit:"
