Fandom Of The Month

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! It’s Disney month here at FanficAholics Anon!

It’s unlikely that there’s one among us who has not been captivated by the magic of a Disney movie as a wide-eyed child, and now FFA is offering you all the chance to relive those pre-salad days among friends.

Founded on 16th October 1923, the company was first known as Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio, and was the baby of Walt Elias Disney and his brother, Roy O. Disney. In 1938, the studio became publicly traded as Walt Disney Productions, and it was not until 1986 that it adopted its current name of The Walt Disney Company. Today, it boasts one of the largest and best-known movie studios in Hollywood, and is worth an estimated $69.206 billion.

The very first Disney production was a short, silent film in 1923 entitled ‘Alice’s Wonderland’, which depicted a child actress named Virginia Davis interacting with a series of animated characters. Since then Disney has come a long way, moving expertly with the times with the release of it’s first sound film ‘Steamboat Willie’ (featuring company mascot, Mickey Mouse), through to the success of it’s first pre-war feature length animation ‘Snow White and The Seven Dwarves’, right up to the creation of Disneyland in 1954. The company has moved from strength to strength, now with a list as long as your arm of movies that have topped the box offices. In addition to this, the Disney Company own Pixar, the ABC network, Marvel Entertainment, ESPN Inc., a cruise line, and a host of other media and entertainment related companies that proudly wear the Disney logo.

So, step-lively, and look for your bear necessities of Disney, down at Fanficaholics Anon, and its sister groups, FFAFM, FanficAholics Updates, and FFA PicSpam.

After all, we are where the magic lives!
