    "Walt"

    I think it's interesting that just a few days, or weeks I'm not sure, after Lou had a conversation on a podcast about the notion of a biographical movie about Walt.

    The internet that I've seen is abuzz with the poster, with nearly everyone wishing it was real, and some sites calling Hollywood to pay attention to this one. Of all the stupid WDW rumors that fly around, this one, eventually, could be true I think.

    I think it's an absolutely genius poster. Such a pivotal moment. My only correction on it would be to have Lillian sitting next to him.

    I saw this poster and even checked IMDB because I thought it was real. I was disappointed when it wasn't. I think it would be wonderful with Ryan. He's extremely talented!

    It needs to happen.

    Keep in mind the audience about which you're speaking. If by "the internet" you mean Disney forums, then yes, I'm sure there people 'abuzz' over the poster. But surely you're now talking about 'the internet' as a whole. The majority of the world is not buzzing over an autobiographical film about Walt Disney.

    I've seen articles on IMDb, Huffington, Hollywood Reporter, Reddit, Yahoo, MSN, BuzzFeed, Business Insider, Entertainment Weekly, Inquisitr, Christian Post, forums not specific to Disney, Zimbio, TheFW, Vulture, NextMovie.com, FirstShowing.net, Crushable, PopWatch, and even GameFAQs. If that isn't "the internet", I don't know what is.

    Which is why I was questioning the sources. As long as it's outside the Disney realm, that would make sense. I can't ever see myself going to a site called GameFAQS, so I'll have to take your word for it.

    Re: "Walt"

    It would be an interesting picture but I figured it was a fake. The "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" tag at the top of the poster gave it away. The Disney Company has gone to simply "Disney" to title it's movies. No more Walt or simply "Disney's."

    The depection of Gossleing certainly pulls off Walt's look too.

    It's surprising they have never made a biography on Walt before. Such an incredible story, it would make for a great film.

    I am actually surprised that they never did a biopic on Walt ever before... And I think Gosling would be a perfect pick to portray Walt...
