It’s Disney+ launch day, meaning hordes of new subscribers are well into their second or even third watch of The Goofy Movie by now (we presume). But after audiences consider themselves appropriately “Goof’d,” the new streaming platform is ready to offer them a bounty of streaming titles from the larger Disney archives, as well as a selection of original films and series. One such series is The Imagineering Story, a six-part documentary offering a glimpse into the history of Disney’s storied Imagineers. Ahead of the docuseries’ debut, we asked director Leslie Iwerks about the tricky balance of giving Disney theme park fans a peek behind the curtain while still maintaining some of the “Disney magic.” Iwerks also told us about her favorite feats of Imagineering, and shared what it was like to grow up in a family of legendary Disney artists.
