Disney’s story begins in early 1920s, when he moved to California and set up the Disney Brothers Studio with his brother Roy. He got a huge success with creation of “Micky Mouse” in 1928. Afterwards, he created a number of cartoon characters loved by both children and adults.

Disney was a heavy smoker throughout his life and died of lung cancer in December 15, 1966, aged 65. He nevertheless remains an important figure in the history of animation.
