    Miller married Diane Disney in 1954. He played for the Los Angeles Rams in 1956 and in one game, with Walt in attendance, was knocked unconscious. Walt thought football was too dangerous and feared his future grandchildren could grow up without a father. He asked Miller to give up football and come work for him -- and Miller agreed.

    Ron Miller, son-in-law of Walt Disney and former President and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, dies at 85

    Tonight, Disney released a much-too-short teaser for the live-action Aladdin movie which opens May 24 and stars Will Smith as the Genie. Could we call him "Man In Blue"? Never mind.

    Disney and The Hollywood Reporter should know better than to keep calling movie previews "trailers." It's been 50 years since previews "trailed" feature films. They are shown before the feature film and are clearly identified as "previews." Anyway, the new Frozen 2 preview was viewed more than 116,000,000 times in its first 24 hours -- and how did those blowing leaves from Pocahontas get in there?

    Frozen 2 is most watched animated trailer of all time in first 24 hours

    Smith created the Disney Archives in 1970. They hold hundreds of thousands of books, magazines, scripts, animation drawings, videotapes, DVDs, toys, dolls, contracts, training manuals and other Disney artifacts and memorabilia. Several hundred of the books and toys and artifacts are housed in a room at Disney's Burbank studios. The room is open to the public as part of a studio tour. A few years ago, I got to see the room and meet Dave, who had retired in 2010 but just happened to be there that day. Smith also wrote the Disney A To Z encyclopedia, which is now in its fifth updated edition.
