While the name of Walt Disney will always be synonymous with the movie magic of hand-drawn animation, the legendary studio also helped lay the foundation for the digital age of cinema with its technological innovations and pioneering development of computer graphics.

This March Break, TIFF is delighted to present this rarest of opportunities to see some of Disney's most beloved and influential animated classics on the big screen, as well as three live-action spectaculars that pushed the frontiers of cinematic special effects. From animal adventures to spaced-out sci-fi spectacles, our showcase of Walt Disney Classics will take you up in the sky, under the sea, across the world and beyond the stars! — Samuel La France
