“I don’t know why I’m here,” Depp joked. “I never really liked the word ‘fan.’ It implies that someone is over someone else. I would say that you are actually my employer,” The 'Pirates of Caribbean' star added.

'Star Wars' star, Lucas, had this to say "Disney has been part of my life for 60 years. I was there the second day Disneyland was open.

A lot of what I do came out of the films and the joy I’ve had at the park. In fact here’s something no one knows: Goofy was the inspiration for Jar Jar Binks.”


Danny Elfman who has scored music for several Disney films, was also one of the honourees.

'Devious Maids' star, Susan Lucci who featured as Erica Kane on ABC’s 'All My Children' also made it to the list.

Other inductees included George Bodenheimer, Andreas Deja, Eyvind Earle, Julie Reihm Casaletto and Carson Van Osten.
