Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair…..

Just a quickie here…


Not sure if you’ve seen but Disney Animation Studios are back in action! Yes, they are releasing a new animated feature! Just like the old Snow Whites and Cinderellas. This time it’s the story of Rapunzel, which could be interesting to see.

However this isn’t why I’m here! 😀 The reason is because as I said they are going back to the roots on which Disney took off and creating the classic Disney style, but with a twist! www.slashfilm.com say:

“Previous director Glen Keane developed a new look for this computer animated film, which is said to look and feel more like a traditional hand-drawn Disney Classic, but in 3D. Apparently the film uses a non-photorealistic rendering technique which will make the surface look like it is painted but still containing depth and dimensions. The movie’s visual style is being based on French Rococo artist Jean-Honore Fragonard’s painting “The Swing”. You can definitely see the look they’re going for in the image above.”

It’s all in production right now, however they have released some “concept designs” which look great and extremely promising! Lets just hope it has the same magic it’s predecessors had!

Here’s a test video that was released at Siggraph 2005, it looks great!
