What’s Disney?


Disney is one of the most popular media companies in the United States that specialize in the production of animated films. The Disney Walt Company is the pioneer of some of the most popular animated cartoons like Micky Mouse and Donald Duck. The company also owns Disneyland, the most frequented theme park in Anaheim, California.

Disneyland, which was established in 1955, is the only theme park whose design and development was directly supervised by Disney Walt. Walt says that the idea to create Disneyland came after visiting various theme parks with his daughters between the 1930s and 1940s. The media company was established in 1923, and it operated as Disney Brothers Studio.

Later on, the company adopted several other names, including the Walt Disney Studio and Walt Disney Productions before adopting its current name, The Walt Disney Company, in 1986. Initially, the company specialized in animated films. But after enjoying great success in this industry, it later diversified into producing live-action films and television shows.

Since then, the company has continued to diversify its operations in a bid to generate more revenue. Currently, the company has several main business units, including divisions in TV, broadcasting, live streaming, theme parks, consumer products, publishing, and other international operations. It also runs several cable television networks like Disney Channel, FX, National Geographic, ESPN, and Freeform.

Since its establishment, Disney has produced many successful animation films, including Pinocchio, Zootopia, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Dumbo, Moana, Aladdin, Fantasia, Beauty and the Beast, Raya the Last Dragon, The Lion King, and more.

He first featured in the movie Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins after the LGM’s created him as a potential partner for Buzz Lightyear because he was a robot that could be rebuilt if damaged.

Initially, XR was just an absent personality only programmed to acquire knowledge from Buzz. His first mission with Buzz was to defend the LGM’s Unimind from Zurg. But he was wrecked by Warp Darkmatter. The LGM’s attempt to rebuild him was subdued when Zurg captured the Unimind. This resulted in XR being reconstructed with a more human personality.

Since Commander Nebula signed the documents to authorize his reconstruction, XR considers him to be his father. That’s why he constantly refers to him as “Dad”. But Commander Nebula doesn’t like it when XR calls him dad.

Also, XR has an older brother, XL, who was initially constructed as a forerunner model to XR, but it failed. Since XR has a taste for the finer things in life, he enjoys partying, beautiful girls, money, dancing, and anything lavish.
