EVERY PART OF THE DINOSAUR – The filmmakers talk about the special animation challenges of “The Good Dinosaur” – including figuring out how to animate a dinosaur who’s really a boy, and a boy who’s got the spirit of a dog.

FOLLOWING THE T-REX TRAIL – Follow the filmmakers as they travel to a working cattle ranch and meet the McKays, a close-knit family whose work ethic, generosity, and stories inspired the T-Rex ranchers of the film.

COMMENTARY – Commentary from director Peter Sohn, story supervisor Kelsey Mann, supervising animator Mike Venturini, director of photography/lighting Sharon Calahan, and supervising technical director Sanjay Bakshi.

Scene and Reviewed: 101 Dalmatians Diamond Edition

February 13, 2015 by  
Filed under Animation, Everything Else

101 Dalmatians Diamond EditionJust released on Tuesday, Disney’s classic animated film 101 Dalmatians is now available in on Blu-ray™, Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand. This new Diamond Edition includes several new bonus features.

I was supplied with a review copy and was very impressed. I wasn’t sure how the animation would hold up in the Blu-ray format. I don’t know if they did a lot of clean-up or not, but it was gorgeous!

Based on the 1956 book by Dodie Smith, the story of 101 Dalmatians still holds up. One of Disney’s most fiendish villains, Cruella De Vil, loves fur coats and wants to make one made up of the skins of Dalmatian puppies. We find our way into the story first through songwriter Roger and his adult Dalmatian Pongo. Pongo sets about to find a mate for Roger and succeeds in bringing Roger together with Anita, an owner of a female Dalmatian Perdita. It’s love all around, and Perdita soon gives birth to a little of pups. When Roger and Anita rebuff Cruella’s offers to buy the puppies, she decides to not take no for an answer the excitement kicks in. At times, the movie might actually be a bit intense for the truly young as the puppies do encounter their share of peril.

Did you know that 101 Dalmatians was the highest grossing movie of 1961? Or that it was the first Disney animated film to use a contemporary setting? There is a lot of fascinating info in the bonus features. Traditionally, the animation process started with sketches by artists that were then inked over by other artists onto sheets of acetate. The making of 101 Dalmatians came at a critical time for the animation department after Sleeping Beauty failed to be a big money-maker. Looking for ways to cut costs, 101 Dalmatians became the first full-length animated movie to make extensive use of a Xerox machine to take the original sketches straight to the acetate sheets. Although that resulted in a lot of inkers losing their jobs, the primary artists were thrilled that their original drawings were being realized on the screen for the first time.

Here are some clips from the special features:

I definitely think that this package of 101 Dalmatians would make for a worthy addition to your collection.

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
