Eddie Murphy will present the much-imitated but never improved upon action comedy that catapulted him to superstardom.

“Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most prolific producers of our time, and Disney is thrilled to be a part of this event,” said Rich Ross, chairman of the Walt Disney Studios. “His history of success and collaboration with the Walt Disney Studios is unparalleled and in honor of Jerry’s accomplishments, Disney has established an endowed scholarship in his name at the AFI Conservatory.”

Event tickets can be purchased at www.Disney.com/BruckheimerCelebration starting today (April 23). Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the American Film Institute.

“Across the history of American film, few film producers have earned a place in the cultural pantheon as a household name. Jerry Bruckheimer is one of those rare exceptions,” said Bob Gazzale, AFI president and CEO. “His name is synonymous with the kind of heart-pounding, cinematic spectacle that has driven masses of film lovers around the world to experience the pure and explosive joy of the movies. And most significantly, his legacy will continue in support of the art form thanks to Disney’s establishment of a Jerry Bruckheimer scholarship at the AFI Conservatory.”
