But gosh, i dind`t even know they had the technology to do it like this at the time! I obvisly have some research to do. great link!
Those things have nothing to do with being lazy/reusing animation.Pixar is infamous for adding in all those small references (such as the various character cameo`s in Boo`s room for Monster`s Inc.) solely for fun.
If you know where to find them, you can also spot Belle and Pumba in the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the Beast in Aladdin. Like I said before, they`re just little corks for fun.
But anywho. You`ll notice (as I think it`s been stated once before) that Disney most often was forced to reuse animation in many instances where either they ran out of time to animate a certain piece [such as the ballroom dance in Beauty and the Beast] or when they ran into a situation where they were far too over-budget [as with Robin Hood] and had to cut afew corners due to financial issues.
they used alot of stuff in "finding nemo"the car from toy storythe buzz lightyear dollthe mobile from monsters inc...
and was that a FREANCH song from snow white?i think they used the same dance in cinderella toobaisically all the white princesses dance that wayi havent seen aladdin in a while, but im pretty sure she never wheres a dress
Lol, I agree with you videogamer.
But yeah. Never actually saw a nice clip montage of it before, but these throwbacks have been compared plenty of times with screenshots. :3Old news to me, but fun to watch none-the-less.
The cost of animating these films is ridiculous so would it hurt to save a little money? Honestly, would a child really notice these similarities if they weren`t side by side? Or even if they WERE side by side?
Very interesting, & I agree with White Wolfos- not exactly "lazy".
i watched the extras on the fox and the hound dvd and this useless piece of trivia has never been useful... till now :-D
Pixar > All
I want to watch an old Disney movie now...
Idk about Opera though (if I remember right, that`s what they Wii uses).
I actually appreciate that they take from their own roots (even subtly) to make sure that their style remains Disney after about 70 years of making feature films, with about 55 years of pure hand animation.
Just to put hand animation into perspective, for a 90 minute feature, at 24 frames per second, it amounts to 129,600 frames. Granted, Disney mainly did cel animation (where a painted transparency is placed atop a background), but that`s still a nontrivial amount of work, even for a decent sized staff.
Thank you. I have learned my useless fact of the day.
Here`s another tidbit of information: the song at the beginning of robin hood (the disney one shown, of course) was taken, sped up, and re-named the hamster dance song! :D
These pieces of live-action test footage were probably just reused.
I seriously don`t blame them.Besides, like someone said; it`s the motions, not the actual art that`s recycled. They still had to draw it out a gazillion times. Think about it, most movies are done at 24 frames per second. All of the frames are done by hand. Multiply 24 seconds by however long a movie is... That`s a lot of drawings.
They deserve to recycle.
and corkex. they draw roughly a frame every second or two, ship them off to somewhere in china. where the frames are `filled` by more or less fine arts sweatshops(but they still cost a lot)
anywhoo, this vid was quite interesting, i never noticed that
the funny part, which I don`t have sound so I don`t know if its mentioned, the voice of little john and baloo is the same guy, as well as the voice of the girl aristocat and maid marian. phil harris (baloo/little john) is also in the aristocats.
I`ll also piggy back off kharrut`s response, the whole individual cell drawing takes a LOT of time, and they were spitting out movies 2 times a year in some cases.
USFEmogirl-you also have to keep in mind that the majority of these films that have copied scenes are the older disney movies, made within the first few decades of animation. Every individual cell was handdrawn, whereas now computers are used for alot of the work. Notice how the newer generation of Disney movies weren`t featured, like the Lion King, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, etc. Production teams have more time and technology to use on more original drawings. The only `new` Disney film shown was Beauty and the Beast, and the dance scene was only copied due to a time crunch. I don`t think profits really had any substantial influence.
"Today, Edwin Catmull serves as president of the combined Disney-Pixar animation studios, and John Lasseter serves as the studios` Chief Creative Officer. Catmull reports to Robert Iger as well as Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook. Lasseter, who has greenlight authority on all new films, also reports to Iger as well as consulting with Roy Disney."
Wikipedia is always right.
oh and Opie - pixar = pure AWESOMENESS!
