Explore paintings, sketches and concept art from films such as FantasiaFrozen and the newest release Raya and the Last Dragon. The exhibition centres on the studio’s beloved characters – whether computer-generated or created with pen and paper – and uncovers how they’re brought to life through animation.

More than 500 original artworks are on show – from as far back as the ’20s right through to today – pulled from the Walt Disney Animation Research Library. They’ve been curated from a staggering 65 million original artworks.

The museum is also hosting special events to coincide with the exhibit, including after-hours viewings, a sleepover in the museum (including dinner and breakfast), a Disney trivia competition and sensory-friendly sessions.

Tickets are on sale now.
