“I consider this film an epic, action, adventure film. It’s gonna have EPIC SHOTS like you’ve never seen before. Scope-sized scale. Just gigantic vistas and beautiful multilevel effects, like Bambi had at the opening shot. That’s gonna be like a throwaway shot for us, we are gonna have so much dimension to our world in the Outback. No matter what we are doing, we are APPROACHING THIS ONE VISUALLY, we are trying to make every shot something you are gonna look at and just hits you over the head with “Wow, that’s an impressive shot, that’s an incredible visual” “
- Mike Gabriel (director)
ehem ehem…. NAILED IT.
HAN SOLO IS COMING BACK
The actor Harrison Ford has been confirmed to sign with Walt Disney Pictures to bring Han Solo back to life in the Star Wars Episode VII, which is set to be released in 2015. The film, as stated before, will be directed by J.J. Abrams.
THE ARISTOCATS KITTENS
To me, this film is very underrated. Many claim this 1970’s classic to be one of their all-time favorites. When released, it was very well received, specially in Europe, and Marie has become a major Merchandise superstar, particularly in Japan.
These are some exploratory sketches by Ken Anderson, and show how early in production they tried to clearly differentiate the look of each of the three kittens through proportions, attitudes and coloring. They ended up with a d
iva lady, a painter and a musician, with quite the personalities. They went through quite the process too, first with Ken and then going through Milt Kahl’s refinement and Ollie Johnston’s very personal animation.
Back then, haden’t even decided the name of the third kitten. Before Toulouse, they considered naming him Napoleon and also Dopey. Maybe they scrapped that last one out because two Dopeys in Disney would be too much, specially because of how popular Snow White’s lovable dwarfs was.
