Animation reused in Disney films – No one shocked

by on April 22, 2009

The following Youtube video features a series of clips edited together as evidence Disney engaged in a practice common in the industry, repurposing animation. It saves time and money when you don’t have to animation something entirely from scratch.

While I enjoyed watching the video, what I enjoyed more was the info box. It was clearly written by a person with absolutely no bias.

Looks like the Disney Vault has a purpose after all – to keep us from realizing how similar our favorite classic Disney movies truly are. According to this video, Disney only ever made one movie, and they’ve been tracing it ever since.


Awesome. Anyway, enjoy.

Movies used in the video clip:

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)

The Adventures Of Ichabod And Mr. Toad (1949)

Sleeping Beauty (1959)

101 Dalmatians (1961)

The Sword in the Stone (1963)

Jungle Book (1967)

Aristocats (1970)

Robin Hood (1973)

Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Quick Notes:

The telegraph.co.uk article incorrectly refers to the process of recycling animation as rotoscoping.
