Walt Disney Describes 'Pinocchio's' Pleasure Island

Walt Disney Describes 'Pinocchio's' Pleasure Island

Dec 20, 2018 - In this fascinating feature, culled from story meetings between February 1938 and July 1939 (the film would eventually be released in February of 1940), Walt's original notes are recreated verbatim. The subject at hand is the Boobyland sequence, which would eventually become the Pleasure Island sequence. Of course, that sequence wound up being one of the most memorable parts of a movie made up exclusively of memorable parts, and would go on to help inspire Disneyland's "Pinocchio" attraction as well as the entire Pleasure Island section of Walt Disney World. Commentary from animation historian J.B. Kaufman and "Inside Out" director Pete Docter included.

"When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true."
