Re: The Croods

Although both The Croods and Early Man essentially started as the same project, they're actually markedly different movies, both story- and character-wise. One odd 'similarity' between them is football. The fact that the Early Man cavemen invented football (soccer) is that movie's major story thrust...

Re: The Croods

This looks really fun .. and -- despite a similar premise to Aardman's Early Man -- looks to be a different 'flavor' from that film, and from the first Croods. :)

Re: Dragon's Lair Movie!

In the Dragon's Lair comic books published by Arcana in the mid-2000s (on which Bluth was a story consultant), Princess Daphne is introduced as a smart, capable woman .. and practically Dirk's equal, at swordplay. She wears modest -- rather drab -- medieval-era garb. After her capture, it is Singe w...

Re: The live action Jetsons Movie

Kino have a Uni deal, Droo. They have a bunch of 80s Uni titles coming along the line: the Michael J Fox vehicle The Secret Of My Success is also coming along, in October! Most of the Kino Lorber Blu-rays I have are silent films, or 'boutique' 60s movies like One Million B.C. or Doctor Goldfoot and...

Re: The live action Jetsons Movie

Jetsons: The Movie was 'post-Orbitty'; however, Orbitty does not appear in the film. I enjoy the movie well enough, for what it is .. though (IMO), the stunt recasting of Judy Jetson was unnecessary, and hurts the viewing experience as a big-screen 'swan song' adventure for the long-running TV show...

Re: Disney Renaissance 2/Disney Revival

.. but PatF is set in 1926, while CDD is set in 1939 (ish) .. so .. 'identical cousins', maybe..?

Re: Betty Boop: The Movie

Yeah; it's right in the middle of my Saturday online class time. :cry: Still .. it seems like a fun festival lineup. 8) Here's another early Betty Boop cartoon (assisted by Bimbo & Koko). This was the first of her cartoons with the "Sweet Betty" opening song. It also features Betty singing "Do Somet...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

I was working at a variety of small-time vendors in the late-90s & early-00s -- mostly for commercials & TV VFX, but occasionally contributing to TV cartoons. I had several friends & former co-workers who were in feature animation, and was trying hard to break into that biz. :lol: I finally got my c...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

If you've ever seen the "Work-In-Progress" version of Beauty and the Beast .. there almost certainly exists within Disney's archives a similar version of Kingdom of the Sun , which represents its state at the point that version of the movie was abandoned, in favor of the transition to what became Th...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

When I visited the WDFA studio in 1997, they were then in-production on Tarzan .. but there were a couple of bulletin boards' worth of concepts and pre-production art for (what was then) Kingdom of the Sun on display, in one of the hallways. I recall in particular several painted studies of Yzma by ...

Re: Betty Boop: The Movie

90 years ago today -- August 9, 1930 -- the Fleischer 'Talkartoon' Dizzy Dishes was released in theaters .. featuring (in one brief song sequence) the debut appearance of a character who would quickly be refined over the ensuing months to become Betty Boop! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL6aY_BXWU...

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Yeah; one of the monitors I was referring to is a Samsung 720p TV/monitor, which I still use with my Oppo 'multi-region' DVD player (via a DVI connector). It was a huge upgrade from watching DVDs on CRTs or 480p LCD sets using 's-video' connectors; and still looks gorgeous to this day (it's just a 1...

Re: Disney Renaissance 2/Disney Revival

I feel privileged to have paid a visit to both the Orlando feature studio (in 1993, during the production of Pocahontas ) and the Burbank feature studio (in 1997, during the production of Tarzan ) .. and seeing for myself those massive gold-wooden animation desks everywhere; crammed into every nook ...
