Walt Disney Pictures refers to several different entities associated with The Walt Disney Company:

Walt Disney Pictures, the film banner, was established as a designation in 1983, prior to which Disney films since 1954 were released under the name of the parent company, then named Walt Disney Productions. Another label, Touchstone Pictures, was created in 1984 to enable Disney to release films with a more mature content than those officially associated with the Disney name.

Walt Disney Pictures and Television, a subsidiary of Walt Disney Studio Entertainment and the main production company for live-action feature films within the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group, based at the Walt Disney Studios, acquires and produces output that are released under the Walt Disney Pictures and Touchstone Pictures banners. Their most commercially successful production partners in later years has been Jerry Bruckheimer, ImageMovers Digital, Spyglass Entertainment, Walden Media, Mandeville Films, and Gunn Films

Animated features produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, ImageMovers Digital, and DisneyToon Studios are usually released by Walt Disney Pictures under the Disney banner. Exceptions include Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Nightmare Before Christmas which were originally released under Disney's Touchstone imprint. These two films are also regarded as more like "Disney" films compared to other Touchstone films.



Walt Disney Pictures distributes most all of their own films internationally, via Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (formerly Buena Vista Distribution), with a few excepted movies to Canada. Some, though not all, films by Walt Disney Pictures are distributed in Canada by another billion-dollar franchise known as Alliance Films with DVD rights to Universal Studios Home Entertainment among other films distributed in Canada for Alliance Films. In Turkey, Walt Disney Pictures films had been distributed by United International Pictures.
