Disney works

Steven Spielberg is probably the director who was influenced by Disney the most, as he served as an executive producer on the 1988 Touchstone Pictures film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He also directed the 2016 film, The BFG, which was released on July 1, making it the first Disney movie to be directed by Spielberg. Disney has also owned the Indiana Jones franchise, which Spielberg co-created with George Lucas, since December of 2013. He also directed the 2015 Touchstone Pictures film Bridge of Spies.

He also points out that John Williams' theme of the movie Jaws (which Spielberg directed) was based on the theme of Man from Bambi, as was the main score for Close Encounters of the Third Kind modelled after "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio.

He was mentioned in the Lizzie McGuire episode "When Moms Attack" and the Hannah Montana episode "Wherever I Go".
