You may remember Academy Award and Emmy nominated director Leslie Iwerks from her fantastic documentaries on cinema: A Pixar Story and Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible. If you haven’t seen them, stop reading this and go find them. She’s also from a family of multi-generational Disney legends — the daughter of Disney Legend Don Iwerks and granddaughter of Ub Iwerks, the animator and co-creator of Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. At D23 Expo, it was announced that Iwerks’ next documentary, coming in 2016, will focus on Walt Disney Imagineering — the company responsible for developing and designing all the magic in the Disney theme parks, ships and resorts worldwide. The teaser trailer is online and available to watch after the jump.
