This Week in Disney History: November 19-25

There’s always a great, big, beautiful tomorrow at The Walt Disney Company, because every day is tied to a milestone in the heritage and rich history of a company that has been entertaining millions of people every year. Published every week, this interesting series features highlights from all the divisions of The Walt Disney Company. Let's see what happened this week:


Nov. 21: Tenth anniversary of “Bolt”
For super-dog Bolt, every day is filled with adventure, danger, and intrigue—at least until the cameras stop rolling. When the star of a hit TV show is accidentally shipped from his Hollywood soundstage to New York City, he begins his biggest adventure yet—a cross-country journey through the real world to get back to his owner and co-star, Penny. Armed only with the delusions that all his amazing feats and powers are real, and with the help of two unlikely travelling companions—a jaded, abandoned housecat named Mittens and a TV-obsessed hamster in a plastic ball named Rhino–Bolt discovers that he doesn’t need superpowers to be a hero.

Did you know? Bolt’s design was loosely based on American White Shepherds, with changes to the ears, nose, and overall body size. The film was Disney’s first animated feature to be conceived and designed for 3-D.
