Walt Before Mickey Poster

Lots of people online are getting excited for the movie Walt Before Mickey. Trying to find information like where its playing is kinda sketchy. This is what I was able to find out…

According to their website the release date is Summer of 2015, I have seen many people comment that is actually coming out August 14th 2015. As far as an actual movie theater showtimes I looked on many of the major sites like Movie Tickets, Fandango, AMC and none of them had any information listed. I messaged their Facebook page for more information and received this response.

Hi chip. The movie is having its theatrical premier on August 14 in Downtown Disney Orlando. It will have a wider release of about 50 theaters on September 4th.

If you check out their Facebook page you can preorder their DVD and stay up to date on other information.


Here is a little more about the movie and a trailer:

When people think of Walt Disney, childhood memories flood the mind with images of animated films featuring colorful characters and catchy songs. What isn’t widely known is that there were many timeless struggles that startups even today face. This is a tale filled with trials and triumph. Walt Before Mickey showcases these challenges through the eyes of a man with a dream.

Set in the 1900’s, the film is written by Executive Producers Arthur L. Bernstein and Armando Gutierez which is based on the book of the same name written by Timothy Susanin, forward by Diane Disney Miller. It is the only book to be supported by the Diane Disney Miller of the Disney family.

The film also stars Ayla Kell (Bridget), Hunter Gomez (Hugh Harmon) and Taylor Gray (Friz Freleng).

“I’m honored to portray Walt Disney in the beginning of his career, to share his perseverance and passion despite early failed attempts toward creating his ultimate dream.” –Thomas Ian Nicholas

“I’m proud to be a part of an inspiring story that humanizes an American icon, and sheds light on the blood sweat and tears it took to get to the top.” –David Henrie

“Walt before Mickey inspires a new generation of Disney lovers to dream as big as your imagination can take you. Tom’s resemblance and performance really transports you to another era. Jon brings a brotherly humor to the dynamic. Being able to be a part of telling such an amazing story is truly a gift to me.” – Ayla Kell

Produced by Armando Gutierez, Arthur L. Bernstein, and Directed by Khoa Le.

Keep in mind this movie is not released by Disney so I imagine they have a very limited budget and is more of an independent film than big movie release.
