The Walt Disney Company has been honoring the special Disney Legends who make dreams come true since 1987, and 10 new Legends are joining the group during D23 Expo 2017.
To celebrate the occasion and give a nod to the thirty-year history of the Disney Legends awards, Disney twenty-three magazine has created a unique stand-alone issue. Disney twenty-three photo editor Ty Popko photographed 40 Legends in Disney locations, including Walt Disney’s office. Dick Van Dyke, Lea Salonga, Hayley Mills, Paige O’Hara, Richard Sherman, Tim Allen, Regis Philbin, and Anika Noni Rose are among the featured Legends.
Other highlights of the Disney twenty-three Legends issue:
- Kurt Russell gives a first-hand account of working for Walt Disney
- Richard Sherman pens a tribute to Annette Funicello
- Dave Smith answers your Disney Legend questions
- Photos from the past 30 years of Disney Legends awards ceremonies
In addition, Disney animator Eric Goldberg created exclusive artwork for the issue featuring more than 30 Legends. You can spot Julie Andrews, Robin Williams, Angela Lansbury, and Steve Martin among the animated stars.
Disney twenty-three magazine is offered exclusively to D23 Gold and Gold Family Members. The new issues hits mailboxes this month.
