Sneak Peek of the New Ub Iwerks Book!
Disney has recently released a slew of theme park and Disney history books. Titles featuring Marc Davis, Kevin Rafferty, Marty Sklar and others have entered the marketplace in time for the 2019 Holiday season. Disney Publishing just sent me a review copy of a new book about one of Disney’s unsung and oft overlooked technical wizards: Ub Iwerks.
If you haven’t heard of Ub, that’s not a surprise, but his technical innovations and processes advanced animation, filmmaking and theme parks unlike almost anyone else. Disney just released Walt Disney’s Ultimate Inventor: The Genius of Ub Iwerks by Don Iwerks. They sent me a review copy and I made a sneak peek video of the new book.

Ub Iwerks led a quietly fascinating life with many patents and technical advances under his belt. Not only did Ub make the Disney Studios a better studio, but he moved the entire entertainment industry forward by less and bounds.
