The life of Walt Disney has been one of the most written-about and documented things in history. However, there are few stories that have made it to the big screen about Walt’s early days trying to get his animation business started from the ground up. “Walt Before Mickey”, released in 2015, stars Thomas Ian Nicholas as Walt himself and details the triumphs and failures that Walt encountered during those early days. Today we are joined by Thomas Ian Nicholas as well as one of the writer/producers of the film who also played the role of Ub Iwerks in the film, Armando Gutierrez. Together, we’ll talk about how the film came to be, the challenges of working on a film with such a low budget and tight deadline, things Thomas Ian Nicholas did to prepare for the role of Walt, and much more!
