Week 13 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a 1988 American fantasy-comedy-noir film directed by Robert Zemeckis and released by Touchstone Pictures. The film combines live action and animation, and is based on Gary K. Wolf's novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, which depicts a world in which cartoon characters interact directly with human beings. Who Framed Roger Rabbit stars Bob Hoskins as a private detective who investigates a murder involving the famous cartoon character, Roger Rabbit. Walt Disney Pictures purchased the film rights to the story in 1981. Jeffrey Price and Peter S. Seaman wrote two drafts of the script before Disney brought in Steven Spielberg and Amblin Entertainment to help finance the film. Zemeckis was hired to direct the live-action scenes with Richard Williams overseeing animation sequences.

I'm really sorry this week's was late everyone! I've had a lot going on this past week, and I didn't have time until now to do week 13. Ironically, week 13 was the bad luck week (who knew?), but it turned out to be good luck in the end ^_^ so everything's fine now!

Week 12 - Lilo & Stitch

Lilo & Stitch is a 2002 American animated feature produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released on June 21, 2002. The 42nd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, it was written and directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, and features the voices of Sanders, Daveigh Chase, Tia Carrere, David Ogden Stiers, Kevin McDonald, Ving Rhames, Jason Scott Lee, and Kevin Michael Richardson. Lilo & Stitch was the second of three Disney animated features produced primarily at the Walt Disney Feature Animation Florida studio located at Walt Disney World's Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando, Florida. Lilo & Stitch was nominated for the 2002 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, which ultimately went to Hayao Miyazaki's film, Spirited Away, also distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.

Lilo and Stitch! I had a hard time with this one, I'll have to admit. Chris Sanders's style is a difficult one to mimic, but I still think Lilo turned out really well (not so much for Stitch, lol).

I have to say I can't remember the last time I watched this movie haha except that it was probably when I was REALLY little. From childhood memories I know I liked the live-action movie just a smidge more c: But this is still a great movie- my favorite quote is "A HUNDRED AND ONE!" *facepalm* Also, I've been adding a lot of villains to my sketches, haha. I guess I just really like drawing them :3

Week 10 - Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a 2001 American animated film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It was the first science-fiction and 41st entry to the Disney animated features canon. The sci-fi action film was written by Tab Murphy, directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, and produced by Don Hahn. Set in 1914, the film tells the story of a young linguist who gains possession of a sacred book which he believes will guide him to the lost city of Atlantis. He is enlisted by a band of archaeologists, excavators and mercenaries who also want to find the city, but their leader plans to sabotage the mission, in order to take the profit for himself.

Atlantis is probably my favorite non-princess Disney movie. I love the time period, and ever since I was little I've had a crush on little nerdy Milo! This week is week number ten, and a year from today I'll be at the airport waiting to go to Disney World!
