As Disney gets ready to debut its Disney100 Super Bowl commercial, Disney CEO Bob Iger has sent a message to D23 Members, thanking them for “helping carry the legacy that Walt inspired” 100 years ago when The Walt Disney Company was founded. Iger also shared a look at the Super Bowl commercial, which you can find in our earlier article.
Here’s the message, which promises more Disney100 details soon:
Dear D23 Members –
A century after Walt and Roy Disney first opened for business in 1923, their remarkable legacy lives on in ways they never could have imagined.
Later tonight, we’ll premiere a very special commercial during the Super Bowl honoring 100 years of unrivaled storytelling and innovation, and I wanted to personally share it with all of you first.
For 100 years, Disney has provided joy and wonder for the whole world to enjoy. We’re honored to have created the moments that make your heart sing, your mind soar, your eyes teary, your stomach drop, and your imagination come alive, as you’ve embarked on so many incredible journeys with our stories and characters throughout your lives. You in particular, our most loyal and ardent fans, truly understand what it is to experience the magic of Disney.
Over the coming year, our Disney100 celebrations will give us the chance to say thank you to generations of fans, and to honor the brilliant storytellers whose talents and imagination created the exceptional achievements that make Disney such an enduring part of the global culture. We’ll have numerous opportunities for fans and families of all ages to relive their most beloved Disney memories and to delight in new content and experiences.
Walt once said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” That’s how I feel about this great company he started a century ago. We have a lot more magic to create, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.
So, as we commemorate our historic anniversary, I want to thank you for helping us carry forth the legacy that Walt inspired all those years ago. I hope you like this wonderful video, and we look forward to sharing more exciting Disney100 updates with you soon.
One of the Disney100 projects that Disney World fans are certainly waiting to hear more about is the replacement show for Harmonious at EPCOT. Back at the 2022 D23 Expo, Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro announced that an all-new nighttime show would debut that would celebrate the 100th Anniversary in late 2023 at EPCOT.
