“TRADITION, TRADITION, DA-DA-DA-DA…. TRADITION!”
Disney returns to hand-drawn animation! Thank goodness.
There’s a beauty and a personality to hand-drawn cartoons that CGI just can’t replace. Don’t get me wrong, I love what can be done with digital animation. But to let it completely replace other styles of animation that have their own strengths? A waste. Since Disney started incorporating CGI into their animation, I can’t say their films have improved much. I still prefer classics like The Rescuers and One Hundred and One Dalmatians to the show-offy Aladdin or The Lion King. Disney’s tradition is time-honored and full of amazing feats, and there’s a cetain “wow” factor when you know that each cell was lovingly hand-crafted. I’m glad it will continue.
