I couldn’t think of any other way to improve Disney’s smash-hit animated film ‘Frozen’. Ok maybe two: 1) Remove the annoying trolls 2) Make it in traditional 2D version. These are the hand-drawn 2D concept art from the film’s development. Before they were rendered in computer animation, animators first had to make their ideas come […]
Ever wondered what a Nickelodeon storyboard animator does in his spare time? He re-imagines how Disney films might look if they had more realistic endings. NYC-based Jeff Hong is the animator of this super cool series that shows us what might’ve happened at the end of all those super sweet endings of a Disney film.
Would you sell your old and tiny house for a million dollars? In 2006, Edith Macefield of Seattle turned down such an offer, paving the way for her home to become the inspiration for Disney/Pixar’s hit movie, ‘Up’. The 84-year old woman made headlines when she refuse to sell her property to developers, forcing them […]
Who knew the scruffy Captain Hook could look so seductive? Or Frozen’s Queen Elsa to be such a debonair gentleman? Italian artist and DevianrArt user, ‘Maby-chan’, illustrated our favourite Disney and Dreamworks characters, but with a genderswapped twist. Disney princesses like Rapunzel and Merida became dashing princes, while leading men like Captain Jack Sparrow became leading ladies.
I just love images that create different, powerful feelings in the viewer. This artist was moved to paint the scene because of a beautiful piece of music from the last Harry Potter movie. See more of the artist’s amazing work here.
Sometimes a Disney Princess just needs to let her hair down, right? Thanks to artist Isaiah K. Stephens, you can see just what your fave DP gets up to come Halloween night! This fun collection of sees Snow White looking buff as Wonder Woman, Belle dressed as Hermione Granger, Pocahontas as Katniss Everdeen, and even […]
Here’s one for you Disney fans! This collection of images details live-action scenes of Peter Pan, Snow White and the Mad Hatter, spliced with Disney animations—back in the day Disney studios referenced real people in creating their animations (and even traced their characters over live-action footage—this is known as ‘rotoscoping’).
In 1946, Walt Disney, commissioned by the International Cello-Cotton Company (which preceded Kimberly-Clark), produced a 9-minute something film. It was subsequently screened to about 105 million students across the US in their sex ed classes. Let it be said that the lipstick-wearing baby with the falsies-lined peepers is awfully distracting.
Disney has arguably produced some of the most iconic animated films of all time, with famous characters that have sparked the imaginations of both children and adults alike. It’s intriguing to see these original sketches of Disney characters that we all know so well. We’re kind of curious as to what these films would be […]
I guess the beauty of being a celebrity is that you can wear whatever you want, even if it makes you look like the evil witch from Disney’s Snow White cartoon. The official look for the Met Gala this year was supposed to be punk. But I guess something got lost in comunication because it’s clear these celebrities resemble classic Disney characters.
When was the last time you sent a paper airplane love letter to a complete stranger? Well, maybe you should take a hint from Paperman and try it out. It seemed to work for him. Paperman is a short film that came about when director John Kahrs began to wonder if his interactions with strangers […]
Disney buys Lucasfilm for US$4 billion, enrages Star Wars fans, sparks off deluge of reactions in the form of Disney-Star Wars mashups. We’re a bit wistful, so the one with Luke Skywalker walking away into the Mickey Mouse sunset fits our mood perfectly.
You would have to be living in a galaxy far, far away not to have picked up on the news of Disney buying the empire of George Lucas, Lucasfilm Ltd. An empire that doesn’t stop at Star Wars. Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound and LucasArts are all part of this astronomical 4 billion dollar […]
Italian artist Vacon Sartirani specializes in all things wormy, sluggy, and grotesque, often interjecting his writhing creatures into more recognizable pop images. His Mickey Mouse against the Worms series re-writes old Disney comics to feature slimy, writhing, faceless monsters.
Between 1957 and 1967, Disneyland would lay its cards on the table and put forward the whacky shapes, gadgets and materials that it believed would constitute the housing of the future. This particular example features ‘four equal wings ‘floating’ above landscaped grounds and waterfalls; an Atoms for Living Kitchen, with its revolutionary “microwave” oven; and a sleek living room, with its giant, wall mounted television screen’. Very preescent! Apparently, the planned one-day demolition of the House of the Future actually took two weeks ‘as the wrecking ball just bounced off the exterior. Workers painstakingly cut the house into pieces with hacksaws’.
