Went and saw "Tangled" last week, and I have to say, it's probably Disney's best in a decade (Non Pixar related). Hayley (my wife) and I were invited to Real Life Church in Santa Clarita last Sunday to hear Glen Keane http://theartofglenkeane.blogspot.com/ speak about the movie. He tried to tie in a spiritual meaning to the movie. What I really did come away with was an appreciation of the subtleties that went into the characters. He spoke almost as if his characters were real people. Even though I'm in the industry, I still enjoyed his simplified descriptions of what went into making the characters come to life. Here's some illustrations that he did for the movie. He even sketched a few in front of the audience. How I wish I could draw the Disney way.
(Glen, if you want me to take these down, just let me know). Ok, I've got my bases covered.
One thing I'm very impressed with is how well the 3D and hand drawn characters feel so alike. Very well done Disney, yet another masterpiece.
