I feel like, at some point, every Disney rper has seen House of Mouse and been like, “yesss this is what I want”
Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse is the best Christmas movie ever and everyone else is wrong.
ah, yeah. I think they more meant the way the characters are designed from a 3D perspective using computers, as opposed to the flatter hand-drawn style used for movies like Mulan… I’m not sure if there’s an easy name for that style? Maybe there is. But yes computers have been a part of animation for a while
Hey! I know all about this because I wrote a paper on it.
As you’ve pointed out computer technology existed and was being used to animate in the 1970s and 80s but this was very rudimentary. It was used more for special effects than pure story telling and you couldn’t make a movie just with computers.
In the 1990s, there were a few different ways computers could be used to make movies. In several movies such as Great Mouse Detective, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin. Disney used computers to animate the background for a scene (the clock tower, the ballroom, and escaping from the cave of wonders) the characters were still animated by hand. Another way computers were used was the CAPS project where computers replaced the cell and ink process or Xerox process. Again, the characters were drawn by hand. So in the 1990s when Mulan was made, computers were used to assist the production of movies, to make it cheaper and faster, but were still basically 2D hand drawn movies.
When people say a computer animated movie what they usually mean is a 3D computer animation. 3D CA is a movie completely made from the computer. It is very different from the processes described above and in fact, is more similar to puppet stop motion animation, except the puppets or models are created and moved within a computer.
The first computer animated full length movie was Toy Story released in 1995. Mulan was released in 1998. While Disney was using computers, it wasn’t really using Computer Animation until 2000 with Dinosaur.
I hope this helps :)
