Walt Disney Imagineering has debuted a new website alongside new social media accounts on YouTube and Instagram to give Disney fans a deeper insight into the work behind the magic.
The website features the new logo for Walt Disney Imagineering, which takes on a classic look with Walt Disney’s signature.
On the site, fans can learn more about how Imagineering makes the impossible possible through the combination of imagination and engineering.
One section of the website, “Our Story,” details the history of Imagineering through the decades, from the 1940s all the way up to today – highlighting significant moments in the group’s history.
Another section of the site is “Our Culture,” which describes the community and work environment of Imagineering, which, as you can imagine, looks pretty fun despite all the hard work.
In the “What We Do” section of the site, fans can learn more about some of Imagineering’s more recent projects, like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Pandora – The World of Avatar. There are even detailed descriptions of modern technology used in these projects, like the A-1000 animatronics, ‘stuntronics,’ and autonomous characters. The “What We Do” section also describes the creative process of Imagineering from conception to completion, as well as the impact of their work.
There’s even a section for careers and internships for the aspiring Imagineer, as well as details on the annual Imaginations Design Competition.
As for Walt Disney Imagineering’s new social presence, Disney fans can find them on Instagram @waltdisneyimagineering and on YouTube. The Instagram account only has two posts for now, but we are sure there will be more to come. The Imagineering YouTube channel is currently home to the webseries “Imagineering in a Box,” which shows viewers just what it’s like to work at Walt Disney Imagineering.
For those who want an even deeper dive into Walt’s historic “think tank,” a new 6-part docuseries called “The Imagineering Story” is currently streaming on Disney+. We’ll have a Q&A with the series’ director and documentarian Leslie Iwerks in our upcoming Winter issue.
