Some famous Disney Movies that changed the Animation

A restless innovator was Walt Disney; he was dabbling in pushing the boundaries tirelessly, whether in live-action productions, animation, or theme park attractions. Always wanting to explore, invent, and expand on what was doable.

  1. “Steamboat Willie” (1928)

In the first film of Mickey and Minnie, in its technology innovation, the importance of “Steamboat Willie” lies. It is the first film that is synchronized with sound. The first movie where the action and dialogues of the characters were synchronized, instead of wallpapering the action with background music. It is an eight-minute-long movie, but its combination of humor and heart won the true magic.

2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

In the same decade that followed “Steamboat Willie,” Walt Disney overcome the short-form medium, by publicly embracing, critically adoring what came up with pieces, and the possibility of pushing the limits. But this wasn’t the end. Walt made a first-ever feature-length animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” by which everyone in Hollywood began to refer to the feature film as “Disney’s Folly.”

3. Sleeping Beauty (1959)

After 20 years of making Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in the industry, Walt experimented in more depth to give some more contemporary to the animated features. Before the release of Sleeping Beauty, the first animated film Lady, and the Tramp exhibited an aspect ratio of anamorphic widescreen. Sleeping beauty was the first 70 mm widescreen film with Techirama photographed animated film.

4. 101 Dalmatians (1961)

Before 101 Dalmatians, the Animators used to draw their characters on paper. First, drawings were transferred to the paint and ink department from the animation department in that department, and the talented artists traced the animator’s lines, onto cels. The illusion of life was born after these cells were photographed in quick succession. A new process Xerography was introduced with 101 Dalmatians. In 1942, Chester Carlson developed this technique which was used only in animation never in a feature film. The clean production style allowed a new process that would dry photocopying via the artists’ work. The pencil strokes appeared on film for the first time by Animators was seeing. This process looked so charming, and was so successful, that for decades it was the standard for Walt Disney Animation Studios.

5. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)

The combination of animation and live-action fascinated Walt Disney; before “Steamboat Willie,” was created as a series of shorts inspired by Alice in Wonderland which featured cartoon characters interacting with a human child. This process extensively featured Disney projects like Mary Poppins, The Three Caballeros, and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. But Who Framed Roger Rabbit? It was mixed with animation and live-action, and with interaction with an unprecedented level of realism. The entire process was overtiring and in the end far-reaching. The film won awards for Best Film Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Editing, and it was nominated for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Sound and for “creating the cartoon characters and direction for animation” a Special Achievement Academy Award was received. 

6. The Rescuers Down Under (1990)

By the time The Rescuers Down Under was made, 101 Dalmatians had developed the Xerography process (Floyd Norman veteran animator said he very much enjoyed it). Walt Disney Animation Studios tested a new process by the end of 1980 CAPS or The Computer Animation Production System. For compositing purposes, the system was used for paint and digital ink. The first fully CAPS composited film and the colored film was The Rescuers Down Under but The Little Mermaid was first tested. The animators now started scanning their drawings and inside a computer, they started manipulating. Traditionally animated elements and sophisticated imagery were allowed. The audience liked it as it looked gorgeous, and the story was brought in a fuller, subconscious way.
