Disney and ACMI bring the magic back to winter

ACMI's first major exhibition since reopening is a crowd-pleasing blend of history, art and technology, says CEO Katrina Sedgwick about 'Disney: The Magic of Animation'.

Unless you’ve been brought up by wolves, or raised in a basement like Bad Boy Bubby, you’re guaranteed to have some kind of emotional relationship with a Disney character. Depending on your age, this could be Mickey Mouse, The Little Mermaid, or Elsa from Frozen. Perhaps, like me, you had a crush on Snow White’s wicked stepmother.

This emotional pull is one of the reasons why Katrina Sedgwick, Director and CEO of ACMI, is almost certain she’s got a hit on her hands with the Melbourne Winter Masterpiece exhibition Disney: The Magic of Animation.
