it’s so true, down to the last word. And it’s not even that I’m a DW junkie, because I love some older Disney movies… But the hype over this one was so exaggerated and unfounded. And the academy awards were just the cherry on top of the goddamn irritating cake.

If you’re talking about Walt Disney, then you need to realize that he opened his studio decades ago. Hollywood was a very different place back then. The whole country was.

I know. But the thing is, I go where animation is a pretty huge major, and of the CA 9computer animation) student’s I’ve met, not one of them seems to be at all concerned with the way the industry is headed. Most of them thought Frozen was the most amazing movie they’d ever seen. And considering these are the people who will go on to become industry professionals….it doesn’t give me much faith in the future generation of animators :/
