    Will the Walt Disney ever make a movie about the life of Walt? I think it could be a great movie when done right. Theconly thing would be who would play Walt?

    I'd love to see a movie about Walt Disney... It would be really interesting.

    I'd rather them get an unknown actor to play Walt... God knows if I saw someone like Robert Pattinson in the role, I'd have to shoot the screen.

    Interesting idea, could be very good if done right, or just a film documentary on his life.

    Because Walt is the namesake of the Walt Disney Corporation, I have a feeling that this would be a very hard movie to get endorsed by the company and Diane.

    That being said it would be awesome to see a Walt Disney biopic. I think Ryan Gossling, Casey Affleck or Adrian Brody would be perfect for the role. And depending on the context, maybe Daniel Day-Lewis.

    Ralph Fiennes... Give him a mustache and he looks pretty similar to Walt Disney. I think a realistic biopic may happen someday, the question is if the Walt Disney Company will release it or not. If done right, I think it could rake in the Oscars.

    Also, I think the title should be either The Walt Disney Story or One Man's Dream.

    They could do one actor playing him in his early years, Adrien Brody, And then change the actor as he starts to age. Im thinking Daniel Day-Lewis would absolutley own this part. Hes such a great actor.

    awesome!

    i think that a movie about walt would be a great ideal especially now... many children/teens go to Walt Diseny World without even knowing who walt is... i think it would be a great way to get the word out!:kiss::wave::p

    I saw a special on CNBC last week that his daughter made of Walt. It was great & very touching.

    The Man Behind the Myth

    I believe I saw the same show. It was 2 hours that took you through his entire life. It was called "Walt: The Man behind the Myth". It was produced by Pantheon Studios for the Walt Disney Family Foundation. It was an excellent documentary.

    I think a movie about Walt would be great. As far as an actor to play him, it would have to be someone who guenuinely respects the role and can appreciate it. Ryan Reynolds seems like a good fit for some reason. Like Walt, he really seems to be a kid at heart.
