Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios - A Photo Tour

We visit the Burbank, CA campus.

Walt Disney Animation Studios

As you ascend into the production areas you start to get a sense of how important it is that all this art is on display. Internally, the building is pretty drab, like any other office building. Storyboards and concept sketches from productions in progress - predominantly from Bolt but plenty from The Princess and the Frog and Rapunzel - make the artists feel at home and warm the environment. But for us the greatest sight is original pencils and cels from classics of Disney past, as far back as Snow White, which turn the entire building into an art gallery.

Pixar's studio looks better, at least according to the pictures. Disney's studio looks rather conventional other than the art.

So that's where classics like "brother Bear" and "Little Mermaid 2" were created ugh!... I hope the boys from Pixar can save the mouse. I remember when I was younger being excited to see the new Disney animated movie. Now, unless Pixars involved,Disney makes POOP!

Aside from Bolt, pretty much everything Disney does animation-wise has been junk.

I don't know- "The Princess and the Frog" really seems to have some potential, as does "Rapunzel." It's nice to see Disney return to classic 2D animation. As much as I love Pixar and CG animation, I feel that Disney's heart belongs in 2D, now and forever.

John Lasseter had got to lend me some of those shirts! =) I'm gonna have to try to get a business hook-up with him somehow.

im getting tired of this "only pixar movies are worth watching." Don't forget...without Disney, there would be no pixar.

And they have done much more than just "sequels". Unfortunatly it is not what it was 10-15 years ago...but it's getting there again.

These few pictures don't justify how awesome the Studios actually it is. I've been there and it's a wonderful place!

Your article states the following: "around the corner the WDAS screening room - shockingly bereft of 3D projection - is decorated with the familiar mouse ears logo."
I don't know what the author of the article is smoking, but the WDAS screening room is perfectly capable of 3D projection, and has often been used for just that function.

And to Kathleen S. - Rapunzel will be a CG feature, not 2D. After Princess and the Frog, the next scheduled 2D release from WDAS will be The Snow Queen.
