In honor of The Walt Disney Family Museum's 10th Anniversary Celebration, Emmy Award®-winning filmmaker David Stoelk takes audiences on a fascinating journey through the creation of the institution that, for a decade, has honored the man behind the magic.

Ten years before the museum opened its doors, Walt's daughter, Diane Disney Miller, embarked on the mission of sharing her father's personal story with the world. From the discovery of Walt's newspaper-wrapped Academy Awards®, tucked away in her family’s company vaults in Burbank, to the museum’s ribbon-cutting ceremony in San Francisco’s scenic Presidio, the film explores the museum’s history through never-before-seen footage. Exclusive interviews with Walt Disney’s family, archival footage of interviews with the architects, contractors, and exhibition planners, and rediscovered footage of Diane all help to narrate the film and shine a light on those who, alongside Diane, championed the museum’s mission.

Through his documentation of the museum’s inception, Stoelk uncovers another story: that of a daughter’s devotion to her father. Though the museum tells the story of Walt’s life, work, and legacy, the creation of the institution is a triumph of Diane's dedication, vision, and heart.

Runtime: 46 minutes
