Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection

This is one of the best things I’ve seen from Disney in forever. Such a fantastic collection of shorts, and it just made me realize how much I wish we got more things like this – not movies, not TV shows, but just shorts that allow for interesting bursts of creativity. Also, it makes me long for the days of 2D animation. Of all the shorts included here, the two weakest are the Tangled and Frozen ones, and the CG-animated shorts that do work the best are the ones that are made to look like traditional animation (like the absolutely fantastic “Paperman,” pictured above). It’s also a reminder that behind the giant conglomerate that is now Disney, there’s still an amazing tradition of animation that hasn’t completely disappeared. Can’t recommend this enough.
