entreperneur Walt Disney
by Ekeze Lee
With his brother, Roy, Walt set up another company and sought to find a distributor for his new film – Alice Comedies – based on the adventures of Alice in Wonderland.
In 1927, the Disney studio was involved in the successful production of ‘Oswald the Lucky Rabbit’, distributed through Universal Pictures. However, with Universal Pictures controlling the rights to ‘Oswald the Lucky Rabbit’, Walt was not able to profit from this success. He rejected an offer from Universal and went back to working on his own.
