The conversation will be followed by a panel discussion regarding the history of Disney innovation. Film critic and historian, Leonard Maltin, will moderate the panel discussion. Don Iwerks will be joined by Bob Weis (president of Walt Disney Imagineering), Linda Folsom (Media Producer, Walt Disney Imagineering), and Leslie Iwerks (filmmaker behind The Imagineering Story on Disney+) for the panel conversation.
