Over the past century, Disney has grown from a small American animation studio into a multipronged global media giant. Today, the company’s annual revenue exceeds the GDP of over 100 countries, and its portfolio has grown to include Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ABC, and ESPN. With a company so diversified, is it still possible to identify a coherent Disney vision or message? Disney Culture proposes that there is still a unifying Disney ethos, one that can be traced back to the corporate philosophy that Walt Disney himself developed back in the 1920s. Yet, as cultural historian John Wills demonstrates, Disney’s values have also adapted to changing social climates. At the same time, the world of Disney has profoundly shaped how Americans view the world. Wills offers a nuanced take on the corporate ideologies running through animated and live-action Disney movies from Frozen to Fantasia, from Mary Poppins to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But Disney Culture encompasses much more than just movies as it explores the intersections between Disney’s business practices and its cultural mythmaking. Welcome to “the Disney Way.”

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Medienökonomie, -management, Note: 1,3, Universität Leipzig (Institut für Theaterwissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Walt Disney: Kulturindustrie und Industriekultur , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: “The Walt Disney Company is a diversified worldwide entertainment company with operations in four major business segments: Studio Entertainment, Parks and Resorts, Media Networks and Consumer Products.” Diese Arbeit untersucht das strategische Handeln der Walt Disney Company im Bereich Werbung, Merchandise und Public Relations. Zur thematischen Hinführung wird einleitend auf die Gründung und (Weiter-) Entwicklung (nach Walt Disneys Tod) des Unternehmens eingegangen. Ersichtlich wird bereits an diesem Punkt die anfängliche Verbundenheit von Werbung und Trickfilm, die Innovation und Zielstrebigkeit von Walt Disney und eine zwar fordernde aber erfolgversprechende Unternehmenspolitik. Die Kapitel ‚Werbung’ und ‚Public Relations’ werden differenziert behandelt und zu Beginn der jeweiligen Abschnitte einführend definiert. Im Vordergrund steht dabei die Instrumentalisierung von Werbung und Public Relations durch den Konzern Disney und ihre strategische Verwendung und Nutzung in der Öffentlichkeit. Die zielbewusste Vorgehensweise des Unternehmens wird anhand von Beispielen aus der Geschichte des Konzerns vorgestellt und analysiert. Die ausgewählten Beispiele beziehen sich auf die gesamte Unternehmensgeschichte von Disney, der Schwerpunkt liegt jedoch eindeutig auf der epochalen Geschäftsführung von Walt Disney und nachfolgend von Michael Eisner und seinem Team . Des Weiteren zeigt diese Arbeit eine Ambivalenz zwischen industriellen Wirtschaftsapparat und kulturprägendem Imperium auf. Eine Ambivalenz, die in vielen Bereichen aufzufinden und in der Rezeption des Betriebes konstant sichtbar ist. Die Stilisierung von Disney (vor allem in Amerika) zu einer moralischen und Werte schaffende Instanz vernachlässigt häufig die Berücksichtigung, dass Disney ein Unterhaltungs- und Wirtschaftskonzern mit dem ökonomischen Ziel der Profitmaximierung ist. Die Ambivalenz hierbei herrscht in dem Zwiespalt zwischen dem inszenierten Moral- und Wertesystems Disney und der wirtschaftlichen Verhaltensweise. Eine Ambivalenz zwischen sympathischem Märchenonkel und hartem Geschäftsmann.

This entertaining and playful book views Disney World as much more than the site of an ideal family vacation. Blending personal meditations, interviews, photographs, and cultural analysis, Inside the Mouse looks at Disney World's architecture and design, its consumer practices, and its use of Disney characters and themes. This book takes the reader on an alternative ride through "the happiest place on earth" while asking "What makes this forty-three-square-mile theme park the quintessential embodiment of American leisure?" Turning away from the programmed entertainment that Disney presents, the authors take a peek behind the scenes of everyday experience at Disney World. In their consideration of the park as both private corporate enterprise and public urban environment, the authors focus on questions concerning the production and consumption of leisure. Featuring over fifty photographs and interviews with workers that strip "cast members" of their cartoon costumes, this captivating work illustrates the high-pressure dynamics of the typical family vacation as well as a tour of Disney World that looks beyond the controlled facade of themed attractions. As projects like EuroDisney and the proposed Disney America test the strength of the Disney cultural monolith, Inside the Mouse provides a timely assessment of the serious business of supplying pleasure in contemporary U.S. culture. Written for the general reader interested in the many worlds of Disney, this engrossing volume will also find fans among students and scholars of cultural studies.

For over twenty-five years, Disney artist Carl Barks (1901-2000) created some of the most brilliant and funny stories in comic books. Gifted and prolific, he was the author of over five hundred tales in the most popular comic books of all time. Although he was never allowed to sign his name and worked in anonymity, Barks's unique artistic style and storytelling were immediately evident to all his readers. Barks created the town of Duckburg and a cast of characters that included Donald Duck's fabulously wealthy Uncle Scrooge, the lucky loafer Gladstone Gander, the daffy inventor Gyro Gearloose, the roguish crooks the Beagle Boys, and the Italian sorceress Magica de Spell. Carl Barks and the Disney Comic Book: Unmasking the Myth of Modernity is the first critical study of Barks's work in English. From a cultural studies perspective, the author analyzes all phases of Barks's career from his work in animation to his postretirement years writing the Junior Woodchucks stories. Andrae argues that Barks's oeuvre presents a vision strikingly different from the Disney ethos. Barks's central theme is a critique of modernity. His tales offer a mordant satire of Western imperialism and America's obsession with wealth, success, consumerism, and technological mastery, offering one of the few communal, ecological visions in popular culture. Although a talented visual artist, Barks was also one of America's greatest storytellers and, Andrae contends, lifted the comic book form to the level of great literature. Thomas Andrae, an instructor in the cinema department of San Francisco State University, is the senior editor and cofounder of Discourse: Journal for Theoretical Studies in Media and Culture. He produced The Duck Man, a feature-length documentary on Carl Barks, and was an editor of the Carl Barks Library.
