There are quite a few Disney books I’m looking forward to in the second half of 2019! I rounded up eighteen that currently are scheduled for this year . A couple of these books may end up getting pushed into another year (as the Ub Iwerks book has been previously) – but hopefully not too many. It really is an abundance for those who love to read Disney books! Most of these are Disney books geared toward adults, a few are aimed to kids. I’ve written a number of book roundups over the past few years, and this year there are a number of Star Wars books – and I didn’t even add in Spider-Man: Far From Home – The Art of the Movie, although I now want to own that one after seeing the film. With Marvel, Muppets, Star Wars, Disney history books, etc., it can be hard to whittle down the list to a reasonable length.
The books are in no specific order, although the Imagineering and art books tend to be my favorites. And there are affiliate links on Amazon throughout. Any books I review I will add a review link to.
1 – Magic Journey: My Fantastical Walt Disney Imagineering Career is scheduled to be released September 10th, 2019. Kevin Rafferty’s 40 year Imagineering career and stories should make for a terrific book!
2 – Walt Disney’s Ultimate Inventor: The Genius of Ub Iwerks (Disney Editions Deluxe) was scheduled for 2018 but was moved to November 12th, 2019 (after being bumped to October earlier this year). I have been looking forward to this one.
