Heh, After twitter I honestly stopped getting into writing as much as I used to.
Maybe it's time for some writing.
Firstly.....as the title of this journal says, this is a Disney special XD
On december I have watched 'Waking Sleeping beauty' www.wakingsleepingbeautymovie.…
I was dying for the DVD release since the documentary wasn't going to be released here in Brazil.
And when it arrived....Damn! It became a really emotional documentary, specially because it was amazing to realized the internal dispute and problems were happening right under our noses and when the movies were out, all we could see was that magical feeling and think: "oh, it's Disney, there is nothing that can go wrong with it" XD
Specially because I do remember the release of Lion King on the theaters and how I was always looking forward to watch any kind of material about it on TV (when there was no internet at all back then). And I do remember some of the press-interviews from Michael Eisner/Ron Disney and Jeffrey Katzenberg on TV and the thoughs of :"hey, Is this guy the new Walt Disney?", which made the documentary even more explanatory about all their ego issues @_@
It really build up a new view of all the talents that were born there.
Yeah, I know that nowadays Disney is not in it's best, but every company has it's ups and down. Personally I'm kinda sensing that Pixar is on it's way to it's downside with all their '2' movies, but probably after that, they will regain some more strength.
It's all about renewal.
Oh! And watching the documentary, I've got to know The Rescuer- Down Under, which I never knew existed XD Judging by it's technical quality, it's AWESOME!!! Specially when you have Glen Keane as animation supervisor. But of course, story wise, it's not as attractive. But still, it was interesting to watch and see WHY the story wasn't taking off. SO, if you are interested in storytelling, it's a nice thing to watch and come to your own conclusions
Please, watch the documentary! The sensation and emotional thrill of it can really be an eye-opener. And btw....the last minutes are priceless
