The People & Places series is a collection of short subject documentary films produced by Walt Disney Productions roughly between the years 1953 and 1960. The series (except The Alaskan Eskimo, Siam, Sardinia, and The Blue Men of Morocco) was filmed in CinemaScope and filming locations were countries around the world the Disney staff visited.

A revival of the People & Places series is set to appear on Disney+, to be produced by the Supper Club production company's Jason Sterman, Brian McGinn and David Gelb.[1]
