Here is a very interesting report on storytelling compiled by Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and General Manager at Disney Junior, Walt Disney’s television channel for pre-schoolers and their families, marking their one year anniversary.
On Disney’s influence on storytelling, Lynn Whitaker of the Department of Theatre, Film & TV Studies, University of Glasgow, said: As an academic in the field of children’s media I am frequently struck by the passion and commitment of those who make and promote high quality media for our youngest citizens. By high quality media I mean those programmes, books, games and films that truly have the power to inspire our children, to enrich their lives, to provide insight, wonder and lasting values that shape a child’s understanding of self and others. One doesn’t need to be an academic to know that the name of Walt Disney is synonymous with such media.
