Destination D - 75 years of Disney Animation - Inside the Walt Disney Animation Studios Today
The next segment of Destination D was Inside the Walt Disney Animation Studios today. Darrin Butlers (Disney Animation) introduced several people with sneak peeks into current projects. They started the presentation by showing us Tangled Ever After. We then got to hear from the Frozen director about this tale of two sisters (voiced by Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel). We had the opportunity to meet Olaf - a goofy snowman that was a first attempt for the young snow queen. A first pancake if you will - you know, you always mess that one up and it ends up looking a little different from the classic pancake shape. We were then treated to a song from the film - it was beautiful! Plus, they showed art from the upcoming film. No cameras allowed of course. Next up in the program was Paperman. The team discussed the process used on this short and then they screened the film for us. It was wonderful! Finally, we were given some insight and previews for Wreck it Ralph. The voice actors actually were able to record together - a process that is usually done separate in animation, but lead John C. Reilly (Ralph) really wanted to be able to play against the other actors. I can't wait to see this film!
