Trailer Unveiled For ‘Walt Before Mickey’

A new trailer has been unveiled for the Walt Before Mickey movie.

This film adaptation shares the same title as Timothy S. Susanin’s 2011 nonfiction book which features a forward written by Diane Disney Miller. The video embedded above offers glimpses of Thomas Ian Nicholas as a young Walt Disney and Jon Heder as his brother Roy Disney.

Here’s more from Deadline: “Disney fans got a peek at the 1960s-era Walt in last year’s Saving Mr. Banks, but Walt Before Mickey offers up the pre-Depression Era ‘missing decade’ during which he launched four studios and moved from Missouri to California, with varying degrees of success. Jodie Sweetin (Full House) and David Henrie (Wizards Of Waverly Place) also star for first-time feature helmer Khoa Le, who directs a script by Arthur L. Bernstein and Armando Gutierrez.”
