Good News/Bad News: The Last 2D Animators at Disney are Doing Projection Mapping for Walt Disney World

The Good News: Legendary Disney animators Mark Henn (Tiana, Jasmine, etc.), Eric Goldberg (Genie, Phil, etc.), and Randy Haycock (adult Simba , young Hercules, etc.), are animating characters from Aladdin, The Little MermaidMoana, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, etc. USING THE CLASSIC, HAND-DRAWN METHOD for an upcoming Walt Disney World show, Happily Ever After, scheduled to debut May 12.

Besides the usual fireworks and pyrotechnics, Happily Ever After will feature the now de rigueur projection mapping on Cinderella’s Castle – only it will be done in glorious hand-drawn animation! What a wonderful way to keep kids aware of this now pretty-much-extinct Disney tradition!

The Bad News: Disney is wasting these legends on temporary theme park shows, when they could be using them to train a brand new generation of animators in the fine art of hand-drawn animation! Traditions like this MUST be passed down from one generation to the next, or else the intricacies and subtleties of the art form will be lost. Textbooks and video tutorials can only capture a fraction of the knowledge that these ‘old Masters’ have to share. It would be a shame if this knowledge died with them.

We as fans are guessing, who is the bad person?
Whilst Disney are more focused on “Why are they a bad person?”
Cause the strength of the surprise villains isn’t their surprise….

The fact that they have to be a “surprise” is their weakest aspect.

Big Hero 6 The Series Hint At The Kim Possible D23 Interview 

There’s also guaranteed to be tremendous heart in McCorkle and Schooley’s next series for Disney—the upcoming series Big Hero 6 The Series, which continues the story of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Oscar®-winning film Big Hero 6. The series, which picks up immediately after the events of the movie, is so eagerly anticipated it’s already been picked up for a second season in advance of its fall debut on Disney XD. We couldn’t help but wonder how Kim and Ron might fit into this new group of teens committed to saving the world, led by Hiro and his huggable robot Baymax, along with the no-nonsense Go Go, quirky scientist Honey Lemon, control freak Wasabi, and fanboy Fred.

“Kim is this weird hybrid of Honey Lemon and Go Go. A lot of times, with Ron, she was pretty sarcastic. But she did have a very positive attitude,” McCorkle says. Schooley theorizes that Ron and Fred are definitely cut from the same cloth, and McCorkle quickly points out, “No good would come of that.”
