Trade Disney stock with binary options
Walt Disney created the Walt Disney Company in the US in 1923 under the name Disney Brothers Studios.
History of Disney: In 1929 the company was renamed Walt Disney Productions, then to The Walt Disney Company in 1986, headquartered in Burbank, California. The Disney brothers started an animation studio that saw meteoric success, thanks to a series launched in 1928: Mickey Mouse. During the 1940s, the company became public and diversified its’ productions in the 1950s. The studio produced films and television shows and built its’ first theme park. When Walt died in 1966 followed by the death of his brother in 1971, it left the company on shaky ground with a shortage of productions. At the beginning of the 1980s, a new president, Michael Eisner, took over following a takeover attempt, which was accompanied by a change in shareholding. This new CEO launched several projects that enabled the company to get back its’ footing and return to profitability near the end of the 1980s, leveraging revenue generators like the Disney Channel and the Disney Store, and by developing theme parks.
Next, the company diversified its’ film productions by creating and buying other studios, such as Miramax, Touchstone, and Hollywood Studios. During the 90s, the group ventured into new technologies related to the internet and video games (Disney interactive), and during the 2000s the company began to license and distribute products from the Disney catalogue as well as Baby Einstein, Muppets, Jetix, and Marvel.
Involvement in many sectors: The company is a leader in the entertainment industry and has a strong presence in the media sector including newspapers, radio, television and internet, as well as in televised series such as Alias, Lost and Desperate Housewives. The Disney Group is of course very involved in both short and long animation films like Mickey Mouse and Dingo, in the tourism sector with very profitable amusement parks such as Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resort, as well as live shows and spinoff products like toys, games and clothing.
