In early 1941, before U.S. entry into World War II, the United States Department of State commissioned a Disney goodwill
tour of South America. The trip took Disney and a group of composers, and artists from his studio to South America, mainly
to Brazil and Argentina, but also to Chile and Peru.
Disney was chosen for this because several Latin American governments had close ties with Nazi Germany, and the US g
overnment wanted to counteract those ties. Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters were popular in Latin America, and
Walt Disney acted as ambassador.
Saludos Amigos was popular enough that Walt Disney decided to make another film about Latin America, The Three
Caballeros, to be produced two years later.
