The Walt Disney Company, commonly known as Disney (/ˈdɪzni/),[3] is an American diversified
multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Walt Disney
Studios complex in Burbank, California.

Disney was originally founded on October 16, 1923, by brothers Walt and Roy O. Disney as the
Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio; it also operated under the names The Walt Disney Studio and
Walt Disney Productions before officially changing its name to The Walt Disney Company in
1986. The company established itself as a leader in the American animation industry before
diversifying into live-action film production, television, and theme parks.

Since the 1980s, Disney has created and acquired corporate divisions in order to market more
mature content than is typically associated with its flagship family-oriented brands. The
company is known for its film studio division, The Walt Disney Studios, which includes Walt
Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, 20th
Century Fox, Fox 2000 Pictures, Fox Searchlight Pictures, and Blue Sky Studios. Disney's other
main units and reporting segments are Disney Media Networks, Disney Parks, Experiences and
Products, and Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International. Through these segments, Disney
owns and operates the ABC broadcast network; cable television networks such as Disney
Channel, ESPN, Freeform, FX, and National Geographic; publishing, merchandising, music, and
theater divisions; and Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, a group of 14 theme parks around
the world.[4][5]

The company has been a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1991. Cartoon
character Mickey Mouse, created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, is one of the world's
most recognizable characters and serves as the company's official mascot.
