Disney has a feature-length documentary in the works that will go behind the scenes and into the history of its Imagineers, the division tasked with designing the studio's theme parks and rides. Lesley Iwerks, the granddaughter of Mickey Mouse co-creator Ub Iwerks, is set to direct. Check out the trailer for the film, introduced at last weekend's D23 expo, below.

The doc is set for 2016 release, following the unveiling of Disney's new theme park in Shanghai, China.

Documentarian Iwerks has previously helmed 2007's "A Pixar Story," "Industrial Light and Magic," and the Oscar-nominated short doc "Recycled Life."
