He’s one of the best animators in Disney and worldwide, was one of the first animators to bring Disney into the Renaissances and getting it out of the Dark Ages, also he’s one of the most famous Disney animators and one of the group sometimes referred to as the “Nine New Men”, His impacts on Disney and the movies he was in is undeniable, as he’s the one of the main reasons the movies succeed, his fave feature in animation are the eyes. he left Disney on March 23, 2012.
Now everybody have seen the new Frozen shots, and a lot of us are not happy about them. True, Anna looks like Rapunzel, and Elsa looks like a Disney Fairy. the characters don’t look like the concept art which is annoying ! overall the posters don’t look anything special, and it looks like Disney Faries with a bit details.
BUT, i remember my thoughts when i saw the early shots of Tangled, i didn’t like them that much, and i thought it’s gonna fail, with Punz looking that young in the age of 18, and the 3D shapes overall ! and Tangled turned out to be pretty darn awesome !
So i hope this will be the same as Tangled, there’s still a small hope in me that it’s gonna be a really good movie, even though it’s a very little hope.
AND, the director isChristophe Beck, who directed Tarzan, so i can’t accept anything from him which is not perfect !!
So let’s not judge the book by its cover, even though i’m trying so hard not to.
EDIT : LOOKS LIKE THE PHOTOS MIGHT BE FAKE !
To see how Tarzan’s body would move while sliding down a log,Glen Keane along with the animators based his movement on that of pro skateboarder Tony Hawk while on his skateboard.
