This October is a special one for The Walt Disney Company as it commemorates its 100th anniversary on Monday, October 16.
During this centennial celebration, Disney will have special activations, tie-ins, and moments that will highlight what has made this company so special to so many over the last 100 years.
For example, Disney+ will be decked out with a logo acknowledging the 100th anniversary as well as a special collection of films and series from throughout the decades.
Then there’s the highly anticipated Once Upon A Studio, a special short film that assembles some of Disney’s most iconic characters—everyone from Mickey to Moana—to take a group photo in honour of the company’s 100th. Once Upon a Studio will make its broadcast debut on Sunday, October 15, as part of ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney: Disney’s 100th Anniversary Celebration!, hosted by Kelly Ripa.
Disney will also be re-releasing The Lion King and Moana in theatres this month to showcase two of its most popular and beloved animated films as part of its Disney100 Special. The Lion King runs from September 29 to October 12 and Moana follows right after from October 13–26.
The Disney100 celebrations this October will be unlike any party Disney has held before, but as Walt Disney once said, “We are just getting started.”
