Behold the trailer for Walt Before Mickey, which shows the modest beginnings of the world's most famous animator. And no this isn't a Funny of Die video this is a real movie about Walt losing his shit and his money, a lot.

Based off the novel, Walt Before Mickey: Disney's Early Years: 1919-1928 by Timoth S. Susanin (that has a forward by Diane Disney Miller) the film takes place just like the title says, "before Mickey." But that doesn't stop it from teasing the hell out of Mickey's beginnings with a little mouse nibbling on some cheese. Clearly times were tough for Walt, but he made it out alright.
