The 85th annual Academy Awards had its share of unexpected moments and sequences – I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence did not expect to stumble as she walked up the stairs – but for many who appreciate everything Disney, surely it were the wins, losses and outright snubs that may have caused the most surprises.
This edition of Disney In Depth explores what Disney movies should have won, what should have been nominated, and what wins didn’t surprise whatsoever.
Valentine’s Day is here, and most of you are making some last-minute purchases to show your significant other how much you appreciate having them in their life. But if you know your lover is a Disney fantic, you can also send them this Paperman Valentine’s Day image that will surely get the message across to the one you love.
Check out the Valentine’s Day Paperman art below and don’t forget to watch the Paperman short with the one you love (watch it here below).
If anything John Kahrs‘ Paperman short, which was featured in front of Wreck-It Ralph, was nothing short of magical. The black-and-white short seamlessly integrated computer animation with hand-drawn animation and told a romantic story of man who will go to great lengths to share his feelings with a person he just met on a train. That combined with a great score, and you have yourself one of the best-animated shorts ever.
This is not an exaggeration either; Paperman was quickly seen as one of the possible winners for an Academy Award for Best Animated Sort.
So if you missed the film, then Disney is giving you another opportunity to see the short. The studio has released the 6-minute film online for you to see. Check it out here below.
The Walt Disney Company claimed a number of momentous milestones and achievements in 2012, such as boasting the highest-grossing film of the year (Marvel’s The Avengers). But as Disney reached some considerable points, they also faced and developed a handful of issues. This special edition of Disney In Depth looks back at the world of Disney in 2012, with my top 10 best in this edition, and “bottom” 10 worst (with some suggestions on how to remedy those problems) in next week’s edition.
At the bi-annual Destination D event at Anaheim’s Disneyland Hotel last week, the Disney D23 Official Disney Fan Club hosted a series of events that focused on the legendary history of Disney animated features. Hundreds of Disney fans gathered inside the resort’s convention center to obtain exclusive access to lectures, concerts and footage. Over the coming weeks inside Disney In Depth, I will cover some of those topics featured in the fascinating presentations held at Destination D. As for now, this edition will focus on the exciting future of the division we know as Disney animation.
Walt Disney Animation Studios appears like it is entering that third renaissance we have all been waiting for. With the beautiful The Princess and the Frog and delightful Tangled leading the way, the studio that suffered from creative missteps like Home on the Range is now producing hit films that resonate with audiences and appeal to critics to boot. During “Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios Today,” animator Darrin Butters hosted an appealing round-up of the studio’s newest projects.
Warning: This edition contains some spoilers of details mentioned at the event.
