Animator, producer and entrepreneur Walt Disney may have died in 1966, but a post-mortem appearance on Saturday at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute has people wondering.

An incredibly realistic hologram of Disney was unveiled as part of Disney100: The Exhibition celebrating 100 years of the Walt Disney Company.

While the exhibit boasts it will "showcase more than 250 of its 'Crown Jewels,' rarely seen original artworks and artifacts, costumes, props and other memorabilia," it seems the hologram is the attraction garnering the most chatter.

The Disney Company's official fan club D23 posted a video of the unveiling to social media.

It began with a quick intro from Mickey Mouse as his "Sorcerers Apprentice" character from Fantasia.

According to The New York Times, the hologram was created by using archival video and artificial intelligence tools.

People on social media were mixed in their reactions.

Some thought the hologram was well-executed and honored the company's founder.

And a few are a little unsure if it's actually a hologram.

But to the vast majority, the display was a bit "icky."

According to the Franklin Institute, Disney curated special behind-the-scenes glimpses into the creation of Disney's most popular characters, films, shows and attractions—from Disneyland to Walt Disney World and beyond—exclusively for the exhibition.

In addition, it will include themed galleries featuring moving stories, interactive installations and background information and "will take visitors on a journey through 100 years of The Walt Disney Company."

Disney100: The Exhibition will run through August 27 at The Franklin Institute before embarking on a North American tour.
