Today we Disney mourn the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant a giant in sports and a person so full of life. Terrible news and so hard to process.
Kobe and his family were often seen at Disneyland and shared many Disney photos with his fans like this family photo with Goofy and the cute Up photo with his wife below.
He also visited Disneyland after his Lakers won the Championship back in 2010. You can read that post here.
Other ties to Disney include working with Disney Legend Glen Keane on the animated short Dear Basketball which ended up winning the Oscar for Best Animated Short for both Bryant and Keane in 2018.
See the video clip here:
Kobe was 41 and died with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna who was also among those killed in the helicopter crash yesterday.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family…
