During a visit to Walt Disney Studios, James Gunn had the opportunity to tour Walt Disney’s office, which has very recently been restored to the exact state it was in at the time of the filmmaker’s death. Disney, the mastermind behind the brand that bears his name, died of lung cancer in 1966 at the age of 65.
Luckily for us, Gunn is a social media maven and often lets us into his world via Facebook.
Gunn has recently wrapped filming on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for Marvel, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studios. Clearly there are advantages to creating masterpieces for the House of Mouse whilst being an all-around awesome person. Tours like this are not common. According to The Nerdist:
“Tours of Walt Disney’s office suite begin in 2016 as part of the D23: The Official Disney Fan Club offer to their Gold Members.”
So even if you’re not in the unique position of bringing Star Lord to the big screen, you can still have a shot of seeing the interior space of one of Hollywood’s most iconic and visionary minds. If you snag a D23 Gold Membership, that is. It’s surprisingly not a total bank breaker at $79.99 per year for individuals.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in US theaters May 5, 2017 and in the UK April 28, 2017.
