The Future Resurgence of Hand Drawn Animation – An Editorial

0

When the new trailer for Mary Poppins Returns was released on Monday, one of the first things that got the attention of viewers was the inclusion of hand drawn animation. In recent years, 2D animation has become somewhat of a novelty in feature films, both in Disney and in other studios. Not since 2011’s Winnie the Pooh have we gotten a theatrical traditionally animated film from Disney. Other major studios specializing in this art have also slowed down or stopped altogether as in the case of Don Bluth’s work is his own studio and his work at Fox, with his last film releasing almost 20 years ago.

With Pixar mainstreaming the use of 3D animation in the 1990’s, computer animation has grown drastically and has become the new norm for feature length animated films. “Saturday morning cartoons” are still popular on various channels, but traditional animation is no longer the as prevalent. Though software such as Toon Boom still exists to assist in the production of traditional animation, using 3D animation in film is oftentimes cheaper, more accessible and expected if you want to keep up with the times. With this medium steadily progressing for the last 25 years, this has meant pushing traditional animation to the side. However, I could see this changing perhaps in the near future.

Like many others, seeing the new Mary Poppins Returns trailer filled me with nostalgia. Not just nostalgia for the original Mary Poppins, but also for how films used to be made. Something like the blend of live action and animation used to amaze and impress audiences. Now, we see it all the time, albeit with CGI, rather than hand drawn elements. However, it is clear that people still get excited about seeing that kind of hybrid. Though it is no longer innovative, it has become extremely nostalgic for people who remember it with fondness from their childhood. This is true for myself as well, who grew up with movies like Pete’s Dragon, Bedknobs and Broomsticks and, of course, Mary Poppins. Disney also did this with Enchanted. However, this was more than 10 years ago, before the disappearance of hand drawn animation in mainstream media.

He stood Examprepwell there for a long time. Tami Joan and John desperately retreated until they reached the other side of the door, holding two sweaty bodies tightly together. The drivers hand bent into 101-400 test the shape of a cup, blocking the lights shone on the street light, looked at them more carefully. Suddenly, a loud noise echoed in the air. Tameron could not help but constricted a while, and John made a short, screaming scream. Behind the driver, the air in the distance was filled with bright red and blue flame stripes instantly. Then again is a few roar and scream. The driver Examprepwell turns and looks up, just to see a huge, orange-red cobweb over the Examguideview city.

Now, go to those 100-105 PDF trash cans, stay there and 101-400 test direct the traffic until the entire street is clear. Did you hear that She turned and left without saying anything good or not, A street, began to slowly move a few trash cans.

Finally, 100-105 PDF the man murmured, turning 101-400 test his Examprepwell head to the buzzing doorbell and looking at the door to the downstairs. Is he He shouted at the staircase, is it Lincoln Examprepwell Lyme turned his head to the window again without hearing any answer. The peregrine falcons head turned a little and moved very fast, just like a Examprepwell spasm, immediately returning to the original elegant gesture of keeping. Lyme noticed the blood stained its paw, and a piece of yellowish flesh was pulled by its small, black, nut shell-like beak. It stretches short neck, move slowly to the nest, the action is reminiscent of not a bird, but a snake. The peregrine Falcon dropped the meat into Examguideview the small mouth of a blue-winged bird. What I AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF now see 101-400 test is Examprepwell the only creature in New York City without any natural enemies, Lyme thought. Maybe God except AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF God. He heard footsteps, and someone was walking up the stairs. Is he He asked Examguideview Thomas.

A blue-gray feather, gorgeous like fish. It is looking up, looking back and forth toward the sky. They are always together, will they be with them for life Exclaimed Thomas. Like a geese Lymes eyes returned to Thomas. The latter was bowing his strong, young waist forward, looking through the window, which was splashed with rain. Who is here AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF Lyme asked again. He was annoyed by the deliberate delay of young people. Visitors. Examguideview Visitors Ha Lyme snorted.

Thats Examprepwell AWS-SYSOPS Questions & Answers PDF right, its Peter Chter, a spine neurologist in Lyme. Blaine Examguideview Examprepwell has been here several times, but she certainly can not be a 100-105 PDF visitor. Its so cold here, complains Tommy, reaching out to open the window at the same time.

Lets open Examprepwell again, said Tangmajas forcefully to lift the thick wooden frame of the window. The two birds got accustomed to playing 100-105 PDF since they moved in. Hearing the noise, the two peregrine falcons turned their heads and widened their eyes to the source of the noise.

With the upcoming release of Mary Poppins Returns, I think Disney is going to see the huge hunger that audiences have, young and old alike, for the magical art that is hand drawn animation. I would not be surprised if, in the next 10 years or so, we will be seeing a resurgence in the kind of storytelling that the Walt Disney Company was built and founded on. This isn’t to say that I think or hope that 3D animation is going anywhere, far from it. I love what Pixar and other studios have done. I just think that there is no reason why these two forms of art can’t sit side by side on Disney’s release schedule. As long as Disney uses the appropriate animation depending on the story they want to tell, I think this would be a wonderful way to mix the old with the new.
