It's a sad day. Yet another studio has abandoned traditional animation. You can read the story here. This is truly sad. I love computer animation as much as anyone. Heck, I think that the Pixar films have been the finest group of animated films to come out since the classic Disney years of the 1930's and 1940's. However I think that there is a beauty to hand-drawn animation that will never be duplicated by computer animation. SNOW WHITE, PINOCCHIO, BAMBI, the WB cartoons, WATERSHIP DOWN, etc. are proof of how a simple line can elicit strong emotions in humans. Bad stories have killed traditional animation, not the animation itself. Truly pathetic.
