Brooks for “Broadcast News,” Frank Oz from “The Muppets,” Kelly Ripa from “The View,” Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood for “Alice in Wonderland,” Martha Blanding, who Disney called “the first permanent full-time Black tour guide” at Disneyland, and comics artist Steve Ditko.

“Being named a Disney Legend is the ultimate recognition from our company, reserved for individuals who have made a lasting impact on our history through their talent and achievements,” stated Bob Iger. “The fourteen individuals being recognized as Legends this year have made exceptional creative contributions in various areas of Disney.
