Do you know what the first anime ever created is called? If not, don’t worry, we’ll fill you in! The history of Japanese animation is absolutely fascinating and there have been quite a few bumps along the way including a massive earthquake resulting in some lost films. We’ll talk about the start of propaganda cartoons during World War II and how Walt Disney had a hand in shaping the television shows and movies we have today. There’s no doubt this popular format has undergone quite an evolution over the years and today we’re going to talk about it.
Most people know about legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki who created some of our favorite movies including Spirited Away the first non-American film to win an Academy Award for best-animated feature. He helped co-found Studio Ghibli and we’ll talk about what he was influenced by in his early career and how his projects would inspire others. You might also be surprised by what a pivotal role Cartoon Network played in making the genre popular when it came out with Toonami and Adult Swim.
