Walt Disney’s Ron W. Miller Dead at 85

Ron W. Miller, Walt Disney’s son-in-law and the husband of Diane Disney, passed away February 9, 2019, in Napa, California. He was 85.

Miller was 21 and a member of the USC Trojans football team when he was introduced to then-20-year-old Diane Disney on a blind date. They were married in Santa Barbara on May 9, 1954. Ron served in the Army and played football for the Los Angeles Rams before his father-in-law recruited him to work at The Walt Disney Studios in 1957. Miller’s first job was serving as second assistant on Old Yeller (1957). Eventually, as CEO, Miller pushed the Company to expand and explore, creating Walt Disney Home Video, Touchstone Pictures, and The Disney Channel.

Ron Miller, Former Disney CEO and Walt’s Son-in-Law, Dies at 85
Ron Miller, who served as president and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, has died at age 85 in Napa, Calif., the company confirmed on Sunday.

Hot Trailer: ‘Walt Before Mickey’ Shows Down-On-His-Luck Disney

Hot Trailer: ‘Walt Before Mickey’ Shows Down-On-His-Luck Disney
Exclusive: Before he created Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney was an animator and businessman who spent a decade shrugging off failure in order to build the studio that would turn him into an icon. The indie period drama Walt Before Mickey chronicles nine years worth of these early struggles, with American Pie‘s Thomas Ian Nicholas playing the young and ambitious Disney and Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jon Heder as his brother Roy. Check out the trailer exclusively on 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.

What to Watch: Feb. 11-17, 2014

We’re a little light on quantity at What to Watch this week but not on quality. And our newest contributor, Dave Canfield, has already handled today’s release of “All is Lost,” a film you really should add to whatever queue allows you to see quality films. When you’re done with that, pick one of these five. Ok, four. Ignore “Diana.” Please.

The Returned: Season One”

Netflix landed a lot of press for the way they stormed the gates of the TV industry in 2013 but I think the story of The Sundance Channel’s evolution into a major player was under-reported. Jane Campion’s “The Top of the Lake” and the brilliant “Rectify” would have been enough but this import of a French series was actually their best program, and one of the best on TV overall.

‘The Jungle Book’ and Racism in Disney’s Animated Features

The release of The Jungle Book on Blu-ray today has become, as when Saving Mr. Banks was unveiled a couple months ago, an unplanned forum on a most thorny issue for the Disney uber-fan: was Walt Disney a racist/sexist/anti-Semite, and if so, was he a super-racist/sexist/anti-Semite, or just your average, garden-variety racist/sexist/anti-Semite? Even though the 1967 animated film based loosely on a collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling opened months after Disney passed away, this was the last film on which he had any serious impact. And, since Meryl Streep chose to make her speech applauding Emma Thompson for her performance as P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks as much about exactly how bad a man Walt Disney was, the issue of his true personal feelings–whatever those may have been–and whether or not they crept into the films he made has become unavoidable as of late.

Wamg At The Saving Mr. Banks Press Day

Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen. This past month Wamg attended the Saving Mr. Banks press conference where Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Bj Novak, Bradley Whitford, director John Lee Hancock, writer Kelly Marcel and producer Alison Owen discussed making the film, Nanny McFee, and scarring grandchildren with Winnie the Pooh.

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine.

Remembering Diane Disney Miller

Remembering Diane Disney Miller
Every time I chatted with Diane Disney Miller I had to pinch myself, realizing that I was talking to Walt Disney’s daughter. Now I have to come to terms with a different reality following her sudden and untimely death. I mourn for her large, loving family—her husband Ron, seven children, thirteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild—as well as the extended family she fostered while mounting a series of tributes to her dad, culminating in the opening of the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. Walt Disney was a very public figure, but Diane did her best to avoid the spotlight until she realized that her father’s centennial year was approaching in 2001. She worried that...

'Saving Mr. Banks' Trailer Premiere: Director John Lee Hancock Says the Film Isn't a 'Sugarcoated' Portrayal of Walt Disney

Since its release in 1964, "Mary Poppins" has dazzled millions of moviegoers with its beautiful songs, witty banter, and heartfelt storyline. On December 20, audiences will finally get a closer look at what into making the film in Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks."

The new drama takes you inside the creative process of "Mary Poppins." Here, Walt Disney (played by Tom Hanks), the animator and studio mogul, desperately attempts to mount a production of the movie, while P.L. Travers (played by Emma Thompson), the notoriously protective author behind the original story, demands changes at every turn.

Today, Moviefone is thrilled to premiere the trailer for "Saving Mr. Banks." It's less a biopic than a dramatization about how creative conflict can give way to something truly exceptional.

Disney's Return To Neverland Blu-ray Release Date, Details and Pre-Order

Disney has revealed plans to release the animated Peter Pan sequel Return To Neverland on Blu-ray for the first time ever on August 20. A Diamond Edition DVD of the original Peter Pan will be released the same day.

Peter Pan has been on a roll for Disney of late. The original classic made its Blu-ray and high definition debut earlier this year. Jake and the Neverland Pirates has been a big hit for Disney Junior, and Once Upon a Time introduced Pan and Captain Hook in Season 2. It seems like only a matter of time before Pan, Hook, Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys appear in the Disney Infinity video game.

Return To Neverland was originally released in 2002 and features the daughter of Wendy, Jane, getting caught up in Captain Hook's latest evil plan. The Blu-ray is a special edition that will include the DVD and a digital copy in the same package.

Review: Peter Pan

  • Comicmix
Of all the classic animated films, Peter Pan may be the one that has spread its influence furthest. From James Kirk’s reference to the second star on the right to Michael Jackson’s compound being called Neverland, the enduring story of the boy who didn’t want to grow up resonates with us all. Walt Disney has shined its latest crown jewel to a brilliant luster in the Diamond Edition release of Peter Pan, a combo pack featuring Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital copy (along with a Storybook app for tablets). Said to be one of Disney’s favorite stories, he intended it to be among his earliest releases but circumstances delayed it from being completed until its 1953 release. As a result, some of the lush rotoscoping we saw in Snow White is replaced with complete hand-drawn animation, but it also means some of the figures, from Smee to the
