I can't wait for this! Have you heard any more rumors about this "compilation" treasures set and what it may include, or for that matter any other treasures set that may be in the works? I'd love to see Disney pull out some True Life Adventures, Zorro, People and Places, Song of the South, Mickey Mouse Club, Swamp Fox and put them in these wonderful little tins!
Great. About two seconds of this short was actually animated before it was abandoned. I saw the two seconds of original animation theatrically last year, as part of an Unseen Disney show presented by Scott McQueen. Great show, a lot of good stuff seen, but the Dali animation was the most memorable. Think a moving Dali painting. Quite unlike any animation I have ever seen. I was excited (and surprised) to learn that this short was completed. I am looking forward to seeing it - if not theatrically, at least on DVD. Should be good.
I'd love to see the silent Black and White Alice shorts! And also vol 2 of Mickey B&W uncut of course. After the wartime set, those would be my dream sets.
What's funny is that a friend of mine with close ties to the House of Mouse tells me that the Dali cartoon wasn't revived because of a desire to make art. The truth is that the original contract with Disney stipulated that if the film was not completed before a certain date that the original work that Dali submitted to the project would revert to the ownership of his estate. They did it for financial reasons. Still and all, I hope that the film turns out well despite its quick and dirty production.
That's pretty much what Roy O. says on the NPR piece. Disney would own the artwork if they completed the film.
I'm a huge Dali fan (I have this 800-page hardcover album of most of his artwork) and this is indeed a dream come true.
If anyone wants to see it on the big screen, it is being shown with Barbarian Invasions at the New York Film Festival this weekend. Ted
Wow, this is interesting news. Would make for a nice DVD release.
If I'm not mistaken, this was originally proposed as a part of the ongoing "Fantasia" programme; at least, that's what we're led to believe by the supplemental materials for the Fantasia Anthology and Bette Midler's intro of the Steadfast Tin Soldier in Fantasia 2000.
Any word on what else could be in a "compilation tressures Set"? I'd probably crap if this ever came out, as I'm yet to be disappointed by any of the treasures. I'm sure we'll see a True Life Adventures set in the next wave, as it was rumored for wave 2, along with the war time set and Captain Syn, and gaps in the numbering would indicate that they were in production. Anyword on how they finished the animation? It would be a shame if it had original hand animation that then blended into computer stuff. Nothing beats the old trad ways that Disney did animation, Sleeping Beauty shows that in spades! Computer stuff is fine, it just doesn't blend well (to my eyes).
Ward Kimball's "It's Tough to be a Bird" would be a perfect fit for a compilation set.
Here's a nice and informative article about the short with some never before seen Dali artwork: http://vfxworld.com/?sa=adv&code=319...id=1889&page=1
