Direct from the Walt Disney Imagineering campus in Glendale, Calif., Iwerks will share personal stories from his new book “Walt Disney’s Ultimate Inventor: The Genius of Ub Iwerks.”

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion about the history of Disney innovation, moderated by film critic and historian Leonard Maltin. The panel will feature Don Iwerks alongside Bob Weis, president of Walt Disney Imagineering; Linda Folsom, media producer for Walt Disney Imagineering; and Leslie Iwerks, the filmmaker behind “The Imagineering Story” on Disney+.
