Think, act, draw, pitch — How to bring a Disney Animated Story to life! #SDCC

We got the chance to sit in on a fun panel (where video was unfortunately not allowed) to get the inside scoop on the story development process from the story artists of Walt Disney Animation Studios.

REVIEW: MOANA sails home with impressive assortment of extras

Although MOANA did not get any Oscar love at the recent Academy Awards, it’s no secret that we absolutely adored this film. We have a soft spot for Disney Princess films and while Disney has certainly found a certain magic with castles and magic, they’ve broken the mold here with this tale of a Polynesian princess whose kingdom is the far reaches of the entire Pacific ocean.
