MimiArt Films, was founded in 2006 by a group of movie buffs and independent investors from New York and New Jersey. And reportedly, upon the company's inception, the principals of the company are said to have selected Walt Disney's CEO, Robert Iger's parents' names, "Mimi" and "Art" (Arthur), for their company name "MimiArt." Apparently, this was done in the hopes that by combining these two names, that this could somehow miraculously transcend the MimiArt Films, Limited Liability Company to the same heights as the Walt Disney Company.
Evidentially the MimiArt name has captured a personal endearing sentimental chord with Iger, as discussions have taken place between Nick Van Dyk, Chairman of Miramax Television and the Attorney for MimiArt Films. There is no word yet on the outcome of those discussions.
