It’s done! About an hour ago, Merida was officially crowned “Disney Princess” in Magic Kingdom!

DISNEY FUN FACT- ALICE DAVIS
We all know Marc Davis accomplishments as a Disney legend, but his wife Alice was not gonna be left out of the equation.
She worked alongside top notch artists like Mary Blair (both of them seen in the photo above) in the Disneyland park attraction “It’s a Small World”. Blair did the color and art direction whereas Davis was in charge of the folklore patterns, the research, design and supervision of the manufacturing of the doll’s costumes.
Yay Alice! She couldn’t let Marc get all of the Disney magic.
Who still hasn’t gone to the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival but is dying to go?
Who’s up for some Welsh Festival at Disneyland Paris?
Mickey and Minnie are first in line!

Cruella De Vil was another character brought to life by the talented Marc Davis. Here I overlapped a scene drawn by Marc withthe finished cell, and I cannot help but to highlight the incredible personality these two characters show in this scene.
Nanny’s determination and kind of comical, standing her ground, while Cruella, holding her cigarette doesn’t even give a damn about this little woman and expects to bid as high as she has to to get what she wants, as she has done all her life.
The fact that you can read all of that, from just one image shows the power, and the talented animation crew that was behind it.
In the photograph, you can see Marc Davis, Milt Kahl and Ken Anderson being interviewed about 101 Dalmatians. Marc appears to be talking while Milt is ready to jump in with some insight. This was a very exciting film for the animators, as it was the first time they would see their drawings on the screen thanks to the new Xerox process.
