The Queens of Animation: The Untold Story of the Women Who Transformed the World of Disney and Made Cinematic History
Author

From the bestselling author of Rise of the Rocket Girls, the untold, "richly detailed" story of the women of Walt Disney Studios, who shaped the iconic films that have enthralled generations (Margot Lee Shetterly, New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Figures). From Snow White to Moana, from Pinocchio to Frozen, the animated films of Walt Disney Studios have moved and entertained millions. But few fans know that behind these groundbreaking features was an incredibly influential group of women who fought for respect in an often ruthless male-dominated industry and who have slipped under the radar for decades. In The Queens of Animation, bestselling author Nathalia Holt tells their dramatic stories for the first time, showing how these women infiltrated the boys' club of Disney's story and animation departments and used early technologies to create the rich artwork and unforgettable narratives that have become part of the American canon. As the influence of Walt Disney Studios grew -- and while battling sexism, domestic abuse, and workplace intimidation -- these women also fought to transform the way female characters are depicted to young audiences. With gripping storytelling, and based on extensive interviews and exclusive access to archival and personal documents, The Queens of Animation reveals the vital contributions these women made to Disney's Golden Age and their continued impact on animated filmmaking, culminating in the record-shattering Frozen, Disney's first female-directed full-length feature film.A Best Book of 2019: Library Journal, Christian Science Monitor, and Financial TimesBinding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Nathalia HoltPublisher: Little Brown and CompanyPublished: 10/22/2019ISBN: 9780316439152Pages: 400Weight: 1.55lbsSize: 9.30h x 6.10w x 1.40dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 06/03/2019Library Journal 07/01/2019 pg. 70Booklist 09/01/2019 pg. 26Kirkus Reviews 09/15/2019Shelf Awareness 10/25/2019
