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. Not quite recognized with the glory of doing the animation or the writing, these key individuals in the process work as a bridge that help square away the building blocks and general visual flow of an animated feature. When you see those...

We saw the film a few times during its theatrical run and absolutely fell in love with the clever, colorful world. Now that the film is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital we can revisit that world as...

ZOOTOPIA second highest grossing Disney animated feature only behind FROZEN, more than $1B worldwide

We didn’t even realize that ZOOTOPIA was still in theaters (considering it’s home release was announced early last month) but alas news comes today from Disney that the fantastic animal adventure has just crossed the $1 billion dollar mark as of yesterday. That’s enough to make it Disney’s second billion-dollar release of 2016 and its 11th of all time. Worldwide, it’s the #1 animated film of the year and just the...

Disney didn’t take this one lightly, the bonus features here match the scope of the film’s success offering tons to deve into including roundtables,...
