    A New Generation Of Disney Legends

    Words like “legend” and “icon” get tossed around a lot in Hollywood, but the people who built the Walt Disney company, creating timeless films and beloved theme park attractions, earned those titles long ago.

    Monsters University

    When my daughter was young, I found myself watching movies through her eyes. I came to appreciate films that delivered a positive message even if I felt they had shortcomings.

    Who ever thought you’d be able to flip original Disney animation art—just as the master animators drew it, in pencil form—or purchase high-quality replicas of the first Disney artwork ever sold to the public? Both options are now available to one and all.

    Wreck-It Ralph

    Animation Marvels—In Print And On DVD

    A spectacular new book about Ray Harryhausen is cause for celebration—but more about that later. The estimable Mr. H was inspired to pursue his art, and craft, by the films he saw as a boy, especially The Lost World (1925) and King Kong (1933). But the man who created the stunning animation in those films, Willis O’Brien, wasn’t the only person experimenting with the wonders of stop-motion. Steve Stanchfield, Stewart McKissick and Ken Priebe at Thunderbean Animation have compiled a dizzying DVD collection of rare short subjects appropriately titled Stop-Motion Marvels! and it’s a must for anyone interested in this f...
