I grew up loving DuckTales, so you can imagine how excited I was to hear that there’s a new DuckTales series, complete with a cast of well-known faces. The new series feels both familiar and modern, which is definitely what I want from any nostalgia-fueled reboot. It premiered last Saturday with a two-part special that’s available to watch on YouTube, and will begin airing weekly on September 23.
So, apparently Disney still produces gorgeous things like Paperman, an animated short which has been nominated for Best Animated Short Film at the 85th Academy Awards. The short film employs a new technique of layering the 2D hand-drawn animation on top of CGI, and it really brings back memories of the days when Disney produced quality hand-drawn artwork which could tell a thoughtful story in short form.
