Dove Review

Everyone the world over has heard of Walt Disney and his wonderful world of imagination. He is well-known for his memorable characters in animation, and for his many live action movies. Many of us grew up watching “The Wonderful World of Disney” on Sunday nights, a show filled with the creative stories of nature, his lovable cartoons, and his unforgettable feature films.

“As Dreamers Do: The Amazing Life of Walt Disney” takes a look at this intriguing man from his early years into his older years when he was using his God-given talents. From the time he was a little boy, Walt loved to draw and his imagination was already an important part of him. He saw things differently than most people around him. Walt had a supportive family, especially his older brother Roy and his Auntie Margaret, who encouraged him to have faith and believe in himself.

This film shows the surroundings Walt Disney grew up in; his relationships with family members, and some of the hard times and financial problems he faced. But the most important lessons he learned were believing in himself, and believing that no matter how hard times can be, dreamers never quit. We are proud to award this movie the Dove Family Approved Seal for Ages 12 and over.
