Salvador Dali and Walt Disney were met by chance in 1945 at a dinner at Jack Warner, one of the four founders of the famous Warner Brothers, who gave us Bugs Bunny. Their passionate conversation about common hobby, fishing, soon turns into a conversation about collaboration on the project. His fellow surrealist Andre Breton, Dali writes a letter: "I came to America in touch with the three big American surrealists: the Marx Brothers, Cecil B. DeMille and Walt Disney.

In a recently published letter to Disney, its "very, very dear friend," Dali said: "[...] I was encouraged by the trajectory of our common destiny ... that night we met almost that I could not close my eyes." About Dali's Disney said: "We need to continue to discover new paths. It is usually a good idea for a story are not so easy for them to fight. Dali is communicative. He is full of ideas. "While it is otherwise personally a fan of realism in art, Disney was thrilled Dali's work, and even bought and exhibited his works in his home. Soon after, these two giants and friends start work on the film Destino (Destiny).

In 1999, Roy Disney, a descendant and heir of Walt Disney, during work on the film Fantasia 2000, after going through the company's archives and accidentally discovered more than 150 sketches, drawings and paintings, as well as a total of 15 seconds of animation Destina.

Destino is so smooth combination of "classic" Disney: love story, the main character from Disney's characteristic facial features, the wind in your hair and the birds, but also the "classic" Dali with his classes, bizarre sculptures in the middle of the field, and ambiguous Freudian images
