At some point in the chronology of me dealing with Tangled, a complicated psychological rollercoaster for this lifelong Rapunzel lover, I had completely forgotten (or maybe never known?) that it was to be the 50th Disney animated feature.
I think I wasn't counting the compilation films but Disney does. Here's a helpful reminder from Disney of that rich history (which I saw courtesy of All Things Fangirl). How many have you seen?
The video comes after the jump.
The ones I've seen are in bold. Some I haven't seen so childhood so I dare not "rank" them though it's tempting to imagine watching them all chronologically and doing so... I just need a free 300 hours or so to watch and write up. Easy. Links go to previous posts if there are any -- every time an animated film comes out I realize it may be the biggest deficiency here at Tfe. »

Today, Tangled hits theaters and marks the release of Disney Animation Studio’s 50th film. To celebrate the occasion, Disney has released a short video that counts all fifty films set to the song “Dreams” by Brandi Carlile. I don’t know why they didn’t set it to a song from one of the animated Disney movies instead, but Carlile’s song works fine. Hit the jump to check out the video.
And if you can’t name all the films by sight, here’s the list:
1.) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
2.) Pinocchio (1940)
3.) Fantasia (1940)

Over the last few months, I have had the pleasure to talk with nearly every major influence on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming 50th animated feature film Tangled — except for one person. That would be the legendary artist Glen Keane, who was originally the co-director for Tangled in its early stages and really pushed the film to meld hand-drawn fluidity with computer animation. Last month, while at the press junket for the film I was able to sit down with Keane to discuss hair, how far computer animation has come, the various roles he played in the film over the years, and the lineage of artists in his family. So hit the jump to check out the full transcript, and stay tuned all week for more on Tangled, which hits theaters on November 24.
Question: In the production notes, I was reading that you and John Lasseter had seen Tron, and »

Walt Disney Animation is getting ready to release their 50th full length animated feature Tangled, so the Fine Brothers have created a video featuring popular “Spoilers” from all the classic Disney films. The Fine Brothers are known for their popular spoiler videos. Recently we also posted the “100 Horror Movie Spoilers in 5 Minutes” vidoe.
Again the following video contains only *spoilers* so if you haven’t seen every film listed below the video, I would advise you don’t watch it.

Round-table interviews notoriously can go one of a few ways. If you’re lucky, and we’ve had more positive experiences than not, then the flow of conversation is aided by the contribution of lots of minds in the same room. On the other hand, it can lead to very a disjointed discussion.
On this occasion? Everything went tremendously. For Glen Keane is one of Disney’s legendary animators, with his work on Ariel in The Little Mermaid, the Beast in Beauty And The Beast, on Tarzan, Aladdin, Treasure Planet and more standing tall. And when he spoke, we wisely just listened, and let a true animation great tell his tales.
We were lucky enough to get some individual time with Glen afterwards, too, and we’ll run that »
Hey gang! Here we have a first look at Disney's new animated short film, Tick Tock Tale. The short was directed by Dean Wellins, a three-time annie award nominated animator who's worked on animated film projects such as The Iron Giant, Osmosis Jones, Treasure Planet, Chicken Little, Bolt and The Princess and the Frog.
A funny little clock (something out of Geppetto’s workshop, really) is picked on by the more refined time keepers in a London store, only to find a chance at redemption when a thief breaks in one night.
I'm not sure when we will get a chance to see the full short, but it looks entertaining.

Here's the second video.
The Black Cauldron is one of the Walt Disney Company's most controversial films and for all sorts of reasons. Based on the Chronicles of Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander, it follows the adventures of Taran, an apprentice pig keeper who seeks to realize his fantasy of becoming a great warrior. In order to do so, Taran embarks on an epic and magical quest involving a Black Cauldron, magic swords, elves, the malevolent Horned King, the spirited Princess Eilonwy and a variety of other characters and creatures. However, the film -- which received a PG rating; heresy for a Disney flick -- was deemed far too dark and violent for younger moviegoers and too lightweight and kid-centric for teens an adults. Even last-minute pre-release cutting of supposedly egregious scenes didn't help, as the film was released to bad buzz and worse reviews. The result? A total $21 million cume at the box office, »

With Alice In Wonderland arriving on disc next week, we look back at the English literature that's inspired previous Disney productions...
Disney has used mythology, historical characters, fairy tales and fables as the foundation for some amazing animated films. But, curiously for such an American icon, its also drawn on the diverse world of English literature for some of its most successful projects.
Alice In Wonderland (1951)
Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland became the first animated Disney feature to use classic English literature as a bedrock. In the Disney version, elements from both the original Alice adventure and the sequel Through The Looking-Glass were combined to give a strong flavour of the Carroll's perversely warped universe.
Unfortunately, UK reviewers weren't kind to it, and it was one of the first Disney productions to be accused of 'Americanising' a literary classic.
In retrospect, Alice In Wonderland represents some amazing work in animation, »
One of the unsung heroes of the Disney collection has hit stores with all-new digital restoration, and it's really a must own. The Great Mouse Detective has long been a favorite of mine, and for fans and newcomers alike, this is one to put on the list. From a rather different era of Disney, and the first directing effort of John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog), the mouse-ified version of Sherlock Holmes was ahead of its time, and is still as rich and alive as it ever was. Like another Clements and Musker favorite, Treasure Planet, there's a lot more to the story than most animated films, and a keener effort toward taking the audience seriously. Vincent Price carries things along wonderfully as our villain, and overall the film holds up as both a treat for the young, and a brilliantly watchable option for adults. »

From Deadline|London editor Tim Adler: Andrew Motion, who was until recently the Queen’s poet (Her Majesty has her own bard) is writing a sequel to Treasure Island. Random House U.S. will bring out Return to Treasure Island with UK publisher Jonathan Cape over here in spring 2012. It’ll be interesting to see who goes for the movie rights. Disney has its own pirate franchise – and I guess it won’t be making a sequel to Treasure Planet anytime soon. Simon Trewin of United Agents sold the proposal by Motion, regarded as Britain’s greatest living poet. His book is bound to be better than the [...] »

The first traditionally animated feature film from Disney since 2002's Home on the Range (and more importantly to little girls, the first to feature a new Disney princess since 1998's Mulan), The Princess and the Frog is a well crafted return to this cherished form of animation. While the film has its flaws and isn't playing on the same level of Beauty and the Beast or Sleeping Beauty, it's a step above more recent Disney 'toons like Hercules or Tarzan.
Co-directed and written by Ron Clements and John Musker, the same duo behind the better realized The Little Mermaid and the lesser Treasure Planet, you can tell that more careful consideration of creative planning went into Princess and the Frog than the animated Disney films from the latter half of the 1990s and early 2000s. While the Disney think tank was careful to not venture too far from the ingredients »

Only days after it was announced that Alexander Dumas' The Three Musketeers would be the subject of an updated feature along the lines of director Guy Ritchie's take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, another classic piece of literature is looking to go the same route. According to Variety, Ecosse Films is developing a big screen adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island with a characterization of the novel's antagonist, pirate Long John Silver, that is "hipper, in the style of Robert Downey Jr.'s interpretation of Sherlock Holmes."
Treasure Island was first published as a novel in 1883 and has become the standard-bearer for modern interpretations of pirates and their conventions. Everything from peg legs to parrots to "X" marking the spot can be traced back to Stevenson's book about conspiring pirates and buried treasure. There have been more than 40 movie adaptations made of Treasure Island, »

Groundbreaking, first-time nominee Kathryn Bigelow was prepping for an appearance on the "Today Show" with two of her "Hurt Locker" actors Tuesday morning when the best director noms were announced. "These situations get framed as a competition," she said. "I don't see it that way. I see it as being honored in this incredible mix of filmmakers with these incredible films, and it's a great compliment to the entire 'Hurt Locker' cast and crew. We shot this movie under very difficult conditions in the summer in the Middle East -- windstorms, sandstorms -- using a crew from Lebanon and Israel, so it was no small feat. It's pretty heady stuff, let's put it that way, to be in the same conversation with these other films." Although she's aware of the magnitude of her nomination, the fourth for a female director, Bigelow is focused more on the potential impact on aspiring filmmakers. »
