  • With the Lion King hitting theatres this weekend I’m reminded of the biggest stunts we did at @Disney.

On April 22, 1997 in the middle of New York’s Central Park we launched Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Along with 1500 young performers through live human animation, we created a lion, dinosaur, and dragon who orchestrated movement together as separate animals and then came together to showcase the new logo for Animal Kingdom.

Here’s one of my favourite images of the lion captured from a helicopter above Central Park.

In celebration of #Apollos50th I'm sharing some of my personal favourite photos of the time I met my childhood heroes, Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Jim Lovell. I had the honour of working on audacious projects including sending Buzz Lightyear into space!

Click the link in my bio at @DuncanJWardle to hear about the time that my mother woke me up at 4am, "Sit down, shut up, and pay attention,” my mother lovingly directed, “something important is about to happen.” and that life-changing day, how it inspired innovation and a no limit mindset within my life and how it forever changed mankind.

  • "It was nearly 4am Monday morning when my mother woke us... “Sit down, shut up, and pay attention,” my mother lovingly directed, “something important is about to happen.” That was almost 50 years ago today. And this week we're celebrating Man's first landing on the moon. NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Here's a look back on that life-changing day, how it inspired innovation and a no limit mindset within my life and how it forever changed mankind: Link in bio at @DuncanJWardle
