Delightful new illustrations capture Disney's 100-year history

The Walt Disney Company is celebrating its 100th anniversary this week, and everyone from Mickey to Wish's Asha is here to celebrate. The Disney Archive has released a series of illustrations summing up the highlights of every era of the animation giant's history.

The six illustrations span from the 1920s to today, featuring characters and products from the company's history. They run from beginnings of the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923 to modern-day streaming via theme parks, major acquisitions and an array of well-known characters on the way (see our guide to the 12 principles of animation for an insight into Disney's success).
