One Day at Disney (2019)

“If I could talk to the 13 year old version of myself and tell him what I’m working on today, I don’t think that he would believe me.” – Ryan Meinerding

Number of Times Seen – 1 (7 Feb 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A look at many of the technical and background employees at Disney that help make their movies such a success.

My Take on it – I came across this film by accident and was amazed at the way that they present things here.

Anyone who knows how movies (and TV work) know that there are lots and lots of people involved in the making of every single scene, yet most of them go completely unnoticed due to their expert craftsmanship that make things look so flawless on screen.

This film is a compilation of 30 short interviews with various behind the scene essential workers at Disney that have helped make the studio and their products such a resounding success.

The various interviews are quite eclectic and they are able to give us a very wide range of stories of craftsman who do imperative work behind the scenes.

We get to heard the stories of executive, special effects gurus, sculpters, a train conductor and even the Disney veterinarian.

In addition, each of them gets to tell such a unique story of how they came to become part of the Disney family and how it has affected their lives in such profound ways.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The clip from The Lion King (1994) shown in the “Zama Magudulela: The Lion King Madrid, Spain” segment is actually the sped-up 25 fps PAL video from a 24 fps film source. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
