Furthermore, Disney is a multibillion dollar empire with an unlimited grasp on individuals and territories. An empire per se, since they own many media outlets, markets, shops, etc., you name it they got it. However, the film Mickey Mouse Monopoly presents an entirely new perspective on the presumed innocence projected in Disney films. This film exposes certain traits Disney employs and exclusively portrays through its media productions, specifically cartoons for directing and nurturing influence beginning with children. Mickey Mouse Monopoly points out camouflaged messages of class, race, and gender issues in Disney films that occur behind the scenes intended to sway viewers towards adopting Disney values.
The impact of Disney on our society is based on providing this fantasy world to children. There is no other company on the globe that can do so with such success.

Walt Disney imagined what people thought to be the impossible and created a Disney empire that was made up of cartoons, movies, amusement parks, and much more entertainment.

The debate over the good and bad aspects of Disney movies has been going on for years. It has become a part of pop culture in a way never expected through things such as YouTube videos and meme’s. While looking at multiple Disney movies may give a wider range of example of both the good and the bad in Disney movies, to help depict the effects the movies actually have on kids it is most beneficial to study just one movie.

Everyone is familiar with Disney, whether it be the theme parks, the channel, or the movies they create. But most people most likely do not know the history of how it got to the status that it has attained today. The basic knowledge around Disney is that it was started by Walt Disney but that is as far as their knowledge goes about Disney from the time the Disney Company was established to today. When Walt Disney first came out to Los Angeles to establish himself as an animator, he thought that he wasn’t going to able make an impact in animation. He said,“I was a little discouraged with the cartoon at that time, I felt at that time I thought I was getting into it too late. In other words, I thought the cartoon business was established in such a way that there was no chance to break into it.” (Kurti).

Walt Disney is the most influential person of the 1930-1940’s because of being the first animation studio at the time to do an animated feature film, the complexities of his animation techniques that are applied to this day,and transforming his animation studio to the empire it is today.
