Walt Disney Biopic Poster Is Fake: Wish It Was Real?

French graphic artist Pascal Witaszek has a great idea for a Walt Disney biopic. If it were up to Witaszek, it would star "Blue Valentine" actor Ryan Gosling, be under the guidence of "A Beautiful Mind" director Ron Howard, and be titled, simply, "Walt." Unfortunately for those of you who agree, it's not up to him. It's just an intriguing idea he turned into a remarkably convincing movie poster. But Disney, an animator himself, has been quoted as saying, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."

Witaszek is certainly pursuing it to the best of his abilities. He's no film producer, but it's quite a pitch. The tagline: "Of a Mouse and a Man," a play on the classic Steinbeck novella; the cast: Marion Cotillard, Ewan McGregor, Michele Williams, Matthew Fox, and of course, Gosling, who happens to have started out in The Mickey Mouse Club. He's a little old to play an early Disney (Gosling is 32), but it's still a tempting pick. Do you think a biopic about Walt Disney sounds intriguing? And if you're not down with Witaszek's idea, what would you do differently?

    As long as they portray his ENTIRE life and don't conveniently omit the things he was known for other than Disney....I say yes, I would watch it. Check out www.howtoberetronaut.com and check out the building of Disney World, it's pretty cool.

    Walt Disney created one of the most well known brands in the entire world. It's spawned movies, games, clothes, theme parks, and a whole host of other things. It'd be awesome to watch!

    My Family and I would watch it for sure. There is nothing far more exciting than watching a dream come alive! I'll be sure to wish upon a star for this movie!

    this would make for a wonderful story if shot and told correctly!!!
    And Ryan would make a wonderful Walt, he has the same mannerism as walt.

    Someone who understands Disney. He was particular, his work touched adults same as children with multilayer messages. I am not aware that anybody ever expressed criticism over his work, including Nazis. Disney was enjoyed by Hitler also in spite that he was mocked by Disney. I hope there will be a master to present Disney in the way he deserves.

    Was Walt Disney anti-semitic? I'm serious. If this is true and the film doesn't gloss over it then I'd say yes, it could be a great film. If Disney (the studio) makes the film, I wouldn't watch it.

    I'd love to see Walt's story told for the modern generations who don't know him. Poor Walt would cry if he could see how his beloved parks have been turned into tourist traps only the wealthy can afford, and the foul crap the "Walt Disney" television studios puts out nowadays.

    Walt was always an innovator, so he would've loved what Pixar has done, but he never would've let his hand-drawn 2D cartoons dwindle away and disappear, like his successors have. He also would never have allowed the television cartoon series' departments to have copied Nickelodeon's style to make cheap-looking, distorted, ugly
    animation. Walt was a leader, never a follower, or a copycat. We miss you, Walt!

    Disney, the man, has largely been forgotten by the last couple of generations due to the company juggernaut led by his successors. It would be nice to see the story behind the man that drove the real Disney all those years ago.

    The amazing things about Disney that would make the movie important make it impossible to film in the Hollywood system. He had a way of bringing the creativity out of people that can be learned and taught. It would make for a great and inspiring movie. Unfortunately there is no creativity in Hollywood. This movie would have to be done independently or it would suck. And Disney would never allow it to be made independently.

    Just like Steve Job, Disney was a visionary, and he did come up with some great ideas. Heard he was quite a story teller. A biopic of a great man is always a mind opening experience.

    Disneys gone to hell since he died. Pixar and Dreamworks have overtaken it by far. I feel like we need a movie to remind us who made fairytale books come alive.

    I agree, but it's not complete hell. . . The theme parks and a lot of the newer movies are still good. Just, lots of Pixar, and some weirdness, especially the tv shows. That's the real hell, the TV shows!

    Yeah, and the movies that have come out were a disappointment. The last 2 princess movies were good, and like th classics, the Pirates of the Carribean series I love. but I feel like everything else just doesn't live up to the original Disney standards.

    I would've wished for a more neutral option in the poll, but yes, I think I'd give that movie a try if it was real. I'm not horribly disappointed if it never gets made, but sure, I would watch it, no idea if I'd truly like it though.
