Museum officials say the exhibit will feature items that haven't been widely seen by the public. That includes drawings, props, costumes and animation artwork.

One example is Disney's original script for the 1928 cartoon debut of Mickey Mouse in "Steamboat Willie." There will be props from movies like "Mary Poppins," "The Princess Diaries," and "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea."

Disney CEO Robert Iger (EYE'-gur) said in a statement that the company is happy to offer a "rare glimpse" into its history.
