In the early days, footage from Disney’s hand-drawn classics were reused in other movies to help speed up the production. Can you spot the recycled scenes?
Throughout Disney’s incredible animated history, they’ve made the transition away from hand-drawn animation into the world of CGI.
Though hand-drawn animation isn’t dead in the water, the move towards CGI films began in the 90’s due to the time and expense it takes for hand drawn scenes.
Even the billion-dollar behemoth Frozen was originally thought of as 2-D animated film.
Time and resources are also why many early Disney films recycled scenes with new characters over them.
Two videos created by Movie Munchies show how Disney used this footage to help speed along projects like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and more.
