This looks like a welcome return to fun, cartoon animation. I particularly like the alligator, animated I believe by Eric Goldberg. I wish directors, Ron Clements and John Musker great success with this film, and I hope it brings hand-drawn cartoon animation back to the forefront where it belongs.

omg, monstrous, what's with this old-style disney characters? didn't they realize some more than half a century has passed and lots of things have changed...?

Pete Emslie said...

Should Disney characters now be designed in the same style as your avatar, Virgil?

Tim said...

Incredible!
Can't wait to see the rest!

I´m glad that Disney return to hand draw animation. The alligator and the old woman are very solid in the drawing and animation (Eric Goldberg and Andreas Deja?). Sadly, since my point of view, I believe that there is not unit in the characters design . Each one seems like a different movie. This is something that occurs also in other films of Disney. Thanks for sharing.

The animation for this movie is beautiful and very fun to watch.
Boris and myself are extremely fortunate to have contributed to this film over the summer at Yowza :D

Yes! Welcome back to 2D! But I have to admit when I saw the gator, I immediately thought of "The Rescuers," and the snake is right out of "Jungle Book." Maybe it's an inside joke. Anyway, most of the audience won't care. Let's hope it's a hit.

That one frog is fantastic. The female one is a little bland though...

Please be good...

This alligator is a heck of a lot more solidly constructed than the two in "The Rescuers" and the whole feature was done in Toon Boom, off the shelf!

After talking to a few people down there about this film and what it portents for Disney, I think I'm going to have to see this a bunch of times. Everyone's working for far, far more than a paycheque on this one...
