Nature's Half Acre

Disney Studios Nature Films

The first Disney True-Life Adventure, Seal Island, came about as a result of viewing a vast amount of film footage shot in Alaska while filming a story about Eskimos. There was enough footage of the Alaskan wildlife that a nature film emerged. As Walt Disney attempted to sell the film, Disney's film distributor, RKO, argued that no one would pay to see such a film. This rejection eventually led Walt and Roy Disney to create the Buena Vista Distribution Company so that the Walt Disney Studios could control its own film distribution. Some of these are from the Disneyland TV series and so also appear in that library.
