Jim Korkis New Articles & Books

Disney historian and best-selling author Jim Korkis is back at it with more great little-known anecdotes and unofficial stories from Disney's past. His authoritative but friendly and accessible style make for enjoyable reading.

Over the past couple months, Jim has released several Snow White-related articles including one on the evolution of the Disney princess, published December 21, 2012 (the 75th anniversary) in the UK-based tabloid The Sun. Read Fairest to Feminist.

The piece was greatly expanded and posted on MousePlanet earlier this month. Read Evolution of the Disney Princess.

Then just a few days ago, MousePlanet uploaded Debunking Disney Stories, a piece in which Jim does just that. It includes an interesting segment on the Disneyland statues from Snow White's Grotto.

The big news is the release of Jim's new book, Who’s Afraid of the Song of the South? It's the first definitive account of the Disney film, its history, its production, and the controversy that still surrounds it today. In addition, his 2010 title The Vault of Walt has now been completely revised with a major overhaul and five brand-new stories.

Both books are now available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble...
